Vellabox is a brand new monthly candle subscription box! I love making my home smell delicious so I was pretty excited to hear of this new box, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Vellabox selects and ships curated artisan-crafted 100% soy wax candles every month.

There are 3 options to choose from for your Vellabox subscription – the Standard (25 hours burn time – $10+ $2 s/h), the Aficionado (50 hours burn time – $20) and the Luxe (75 hours of burn time – $30). The box I received for review is the Luxe box. The Aficionado box is double the burn time of the Standard box, and the Luxe is 1.5 times the burn time of the Aficionado – but it has the “it” factor.

And I was so excited to open this box and find fabric packaging! I believe it was a first for me, and right from the start I was feeling this box!

Two gorgeous and delicious candles in my first box!


Paddywax Dandelion + Clover Artisan Soy Wax Candle – 3 oz ($10 + $1.50 shipping) So excited to see this one! Paddywax is probably my second favorite candle company (next to Illume). A close second! I’ve smelled a lot of similar scents to this one that are altogether cloying and too much, but this is just right. It’s impossible to describe. This one doesn’t have a burn time, I’m guessing 20-30 hours.

P.F. Candle Co. No. 11 Amber & Moss Soy 7 oz Candle ($18 + $10 shipping) 40-50 hours burn time. A green, foresty “unisex masculine” scent. This is great and will provide a nice fresh mood. It smells like outdoors with some fragrance mixed in. This perfect and I will enjoy it every time I light it.

Don’t get me wrong – the scents do speak for themselves and these say green all the way – two very different versions – and I love them both!

In my Luxe Vellabox I received $28 of candles – $2 short of the purchase price, but I included the shipping above so you can see what a great deal this is. I would have paid $11.50 shipping for these candles (crazy!), so $39.50 total, a $9.50 savings.  And p.s. remember to only burn your candles for around 3 hours and then blow them out to maximize their life!

    I have the same candle favorites. I decided to try the standard box because they are a new sub. I may upgrade later.
