I love the fact that Flicker Box sources from small business who usually have a presence on Etsy. It’s a good way to get quality candles without spending an arm and a leg (although you can do that, too). What you also get is some really wonderful, unique scents. That’s my favorite part!
The Cost: $34/month + $5.95 shipping
What You Get: A carefully curated box of all kinds of unique, handmade artisan candles with appropriately seasonal scents.
Mosley Lane Mason Jar in Brown Sugared Pineapple– This is a pretty big candle at 11oz and a 50+ hour burn time! It actually made my mouthwater when I unscrewed the lid. It smells like pure deliciousness. Definitely sugary maple but there’s tart pineapple and a whiff of ginger that keeps it from being too cloying. I can’t wait to start burning this. I really, really like Mosley Lane. Every candle I’ve received from them has been powerfully scented with great throw. I have one called Sleigh Ride that fills my entire house with Christmas. Luuuurve!
Soap for Your Soul Candle Tin in Wild Thing– This is an herbal fig scented 6oz candle with a 50 hour burn time. I think this is my least favorite scent. It’s very fruity and I prefer spicy.
VERDICT: I like to subscribe to Flicker Box at this time of year because the Fall and Winter seasons are home to some of my favorite scents. I haven’t been disappointed yet. Candle subscriptions don’t tend to have an insane value but this particular one comes in undervalue. I feel like that tends to happen some months and while I don’t like that, I have been introduced to some great candlemakers. So you have to factor that in when you subscribe. Currently I’m grandfathered in at the old price but even then I probably will unsubscribe for Spring and Summer months. I don’t like floral or “clean” scents really.
