My goodies! This month's box had a theme and it was "In The Kitchen." There are 4 candles, each from a different company, only one of which I had tried or heard of in the past. Let's look at them individually.Copper & Kraft Candles has an Etsy shop based in upstate New York. Just upon first glance, they have soy wax candles in various sizes AND wax melts, cool! They sent a Lemon Pound Cake scent this month. This particular candle is 8 oz and has one wick. I love it when candles are in little tin containers, don't ask me why. It does nothing for the performance versus anything else. This scent is true to the lemon pound cake scent on cold sniff, and boy, is it strong. I don't get any frosting, just a lemon cake smell. This will be perfect for, you guessed it, in the kitchen! I have yet to burn this candle so I cannot write about its performance, but I will keep you updated.
|Wild Ginger: spice kick with plum and vanilla.|
Blood Orange & Citrus scent is right up my alley! The blood orange is bright and not too in your face, and the other citrus comes together to make one helluvuh scent. WOW! Though medium on cold sniff, this one packs a strong punch while lit. I LOVE it! I would absolutely buy this scent again, and I would buy from this vendor again. I give this candle an 8.5/10. Wonderful burning, long lasting scent, lingering, just excellent!
4th Street Candle Co. is another new and previously unknown vendor to me. Looks like they are on Etsy, too, which seems to be the way a lot of vendors gravitate to sell their wares, which is good for the customer because it is easy to use. This Southern Apple Pie candle, while not *completely* spring/summer scented, it nothing short of incredible. It is strong on cold sniff, strong while melting, burns well (at least for the 2 sessions I have burned it), and is a good mix of fresh apple, spice and maybe a touch of bakery? Mostly, this is the apple scent I crave during the fall. I love this one, too, and cannot wait to place an order with this company. I give this candle an 8/10. So good!
And there you have it, my FIRST Flicker Box haul! Have you tried Flicker box? Do you like subscription boxes and my posts about them? Let me know, and have a wonderful weekend!
