The July Vellabox contained one of three different candle scents inspired by summer travel and I received the fragrance for those who look for woodsy notes in their candle! I also received two air fresheners, which is on-theme since road trips are especially popular in summer. I am reviewing The Vivere Box, which comes with a 16 ounce candle and is $38 a month.

Broken Top Candle Co. Saguaro Cactus Car Freshener ($8 each) We received two of these air fresheners from a company whose candle was featured at some point in this subscription box. This is the bonus item and it’s made of paperboard and can be placed in a car, closet, or wherever you prefer. It’s pretty strong so I think I will hang it in my office as an air freshener. The scent has notes of agave, aloe, and moss – it’s a clean and green sort of fragrance, very nice.
Nightshift Wax Co. Arches Soy Candle ($48 for a 16 ounce candle) Subscribers were able to choose one of three scents and I received the candle that is perfect for fans of woodsy scents (the other scents were called Night Drive and Golden Teakwood). This scent has notes of wild sage, cashmere, ivy, and bergamot. I have a hard time telling what cashmere, ivy, or sand smell like, but the candle smells like a citrus floral with a hint of smoke (but that may be the burned wick lol). There’s also a creamy note which I thought was pretty cool. It was inspired by Arches National Park in Utah! It smells great while unlit, even better when burning and while it was noticeable, it wasn’t overwhelming, a common theme with this subscription and I think that is perfect for my needs and my sometimes overwhelmed sniffer.
I always look forward to receiving a new candle monthly from Vellabox, they send such amazing scents and new-to-me brands. I was very pleased with Arches, it’s something I would have chosen for myself in a store and it smells good for summer or any time of year really. The bonus item was wonderful too, but may dissipate quickly in the summer heat so I will use it indoors.
Here’s a couple of box opening pictures.
The info card lists both the candle brand and the bonus product brand along with descriptions of those items.
The candle comes in a reusable bag too!
