Vellabox Monthly Candle Subscription Review

Vellabox is a candle subscription box where you will receive 1 to 2 candles monthly depending on which price level you subscribe to. Details on each price level will be listed below. All candles provided are all natural, 100% soy wax. Vellabox works with companies, big and small to put together the perfect package on your doorstep each month. This company also allows you to purchase individual candles of your choice whenever you are so inclined. This feature is perfect for those who prefer to choose a scent as opposed to being surprised. Lastly, Vellabox lets you 'gift' subscriptions to those you love. These are available in 3, 6 or 12 month options. Price points for these are identical to that of a personal subscription. Candle amounts and ounces are also identical.

Subscription Options:

The Standard
- 1 Candle/Month (4 oz.)
- Approx. 25 hrs. burn time
- +$2.00 Shipping/Handling

The Aficionado
- 1 Candle/Month (8 oz.)
- Approx. 50 hrs. burn time
- Free shipping

The Luxe
- 1 to 2 Candle[s]/Month (Approx. 12 oz.)
- Approx. 75 hrs. burn time
- Free shipping

Vellabox's packaging is simple, but very cute! Mine was wrapped in a couple pieces of burlap and tied with a basic jute bow! Upon unwrapping the candle, the jar/label were also simple, matching the packaging.

Don't let the 'simple' fool you when it comes to scent! I received the handmade Amber & Moss candle by P.F. Candle Co. All it took was a twist of the cover to discover the fragrance. To me, the scent is that of mens aftershave/cologne or maybe a shower gel/body wash. Is it something that I would pick out on my own? Probably not. However, that's part of the fun of this subscription, you never know what you'll get.

These candles burn very clean and are long lasting. I had mine burning for about 4 hours before blowing it out and there was no soot whatsoever to be found. As far as the candles burning for the mentioned amount of time (20-25 hrs.), I can't comment on that as I didn't want to burn it up in just a couple days. The scent also disperses very well. Within 5 minutes of lighting the candle on the main floor, I could already smell it from the upstairs of my home. It gives the entire house a very clean, fresh scent.

Overall, I was quite pleased with Vellabox and the quality of products that they offer. Though $10 may seem on the spendy side for a 4 oz. candle, they are very high quality unlike something that you could buy at a big box store. Plus, you are left with a cute little jar to use in crafts once the candle is gone. This subscription would also make the perfect gift!
