Subscription Box Corner: July 2015 Vellabox Review!

As I have mentioned before, Vellabox is a candle subscription box that I love. For $10, $20, or $30 a month, you can get a varying candle subscription. The more you pay, the more you get! I am at the $10 mark right now, but may cancel another subscription service and up this one. This is my third month with Vellabox, and each month, I fall more and more in love! I got "nice" with my photos, so let's look inside!
The outside of the box, the side of it. Same as always, cheery yellow!
The flame logo!
They send one of these woodish cards in each box.
Each candle is always wrapped in a really nice cloth wrap. The one from this month is especially pretty!!
The outside of the candle I received. "If you dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I LOVE this quote, and I love that this vendor puts quotes on the lid of their candles.
The $10 box this month contained a Soiree by type.lites 4 ounce candle in the scent Bartlett Pear. Another new company! Yay! WOW, this scent is ACCURATE. Juicy, delicious, fragrant, sweet, sort of fresh, simply magnificent. It is right on par with the pear scent from Lake Providence Lodge in terms of exactly how it smells. I wonder if it's the same fragrance oil? It's strikingly good. I am usually not a pear fan, but geez, is this good!!
Check out that wood wick! I have burned this candle several times. The first time, following the instructions precisely, it extinguished itself. The second time, I lit the wax around the wood wick a little more so it would catch, and it had a veeeeeeeeeeeery low flame for about 20 minutes before extinguishing. The wax pooled out just fine on the third burn, but only after I cut what little bit of the wick had been cut with my wick trimmer. The fourth burn was flawless. The fifth and sixth burns, equally so. I am sitting here right now with it crackling ever so slightly next to me as I type this. I love wood wick candles, and I will definitely keep this company on my radar.

On a completely unrelated topic, this company has expletive candles.
For people with dirty mouths like me.
I don't care who knows it, I want one.
Overall, I am still pleased with Vellabox, and I am really pleased with this candle! The few problems in the beginning definitely led to a pleasant success, a wonderful and fragrant scent, and excellent burns!
