Tempting Treats ft. Wickbox October 2015

Whenever I am looking to feel relaxed at home, I look to candles to fill the air with comforting scent.  I have some all-time favorites, but I love being surprised by new scents too.  One of the best ways to find new and interesting scents is through candle subscription boxes.  My newest discovery is Wickbox - a monthly candle subscription service that gives you the option of two different size candles.  There is a medium box and a large box.  The medium box features a candle that burns 30-60 hours and the large box features a candle that burns 60-100 hours.  I got the medium box, so let's take a look!

The Candle

The candle I received is Red Flower's Icelandic Moonflower candle.  This unique candle came topped with scented flower petals for an unexpected, decorative detail.  These petals can be used on their own to give a room a burst of scent or you could even put them in a bath.  The candle itself is in a sleek, clear glass holder.  Though small in stature, this candle boasts an incredible 45-50 hours of burn time.  It is a slow, clean burning candle that will look gorgeous no matter what you put it.

The Scent

The scent is floral and fresh with a hint of lavender.  It reminds me of spring.  This candle really blew me away (no pun intended).  Once it was lit, the scent filled my entire living area and kitchen.  You would have thought three large jar candles were burning.  I have some 3 wick candles that do not give off this amount of scent.  Amazing.  I suppose now I know what a luxury candle can do... Wickbox definitely knows how to pick amazing brands!

The Options

You may be wondering if there is any sort of customization to these boxes.  One size doesn't fit all in the world of candles, afterall.  Once you sign up for Wickbox, you are able to fill out a scent profile so you receive a candle that is a great match for you (pun intended, that time!).  You are asked if you like, dislike, or are indifferent towards things such as floral, citrus, or seasonal scents.  You can also send a Wickbox as a gift so you can "share the light" as the inside of their beautifully wrapped boxes say.  Whether for you, or a loved one, these candles will come carefully packaged in their own individual dust bags with plenty of cushion surrounding them so they arrive safely.  They may not have wrapping paper, but they certainly look like a present all on their own.

Medium Wickboxes are $29.95 (+$5 shipping) and Large Wickboxes are $39.95 (+$5 shipping) in the U.S.  Boxes ship around the 15th of the month and subscriptions renew automatically on the 23rd.  They also offer the option of skipping a month and you can cancel at any time.
