Flicker & Flame is a brand new subscription box that sends you a handmade, limited edition soy candle every month.
Each scent will be unique and will often evoke the “mood” of the current season. Think florals and fruity notes in the warmer months, and notes of pine and cinnamon in the cooler months. When you sign up, you’ll be asked a few scent-related questions to start building your personal scent profile. This will help determine which candles you’re most likely to enjoy.
Every Flicker & Flame candle is handmade with a soy wax blend and has a burn time of roughly 40 hours.
Subscriptions are $25/month with free shipping.
Let’s check out the August 2015 Flicker & Flame Box!
The box was shipped via 2-day priority mail and was quite heavy for such a small package.
A peek inside. Instead of an actual info card, the scent notes for August’s candle were written on the inside lid.
The candle itself was packaged in its own little box.
August’s candle featured notes of lilac, rose, bergamot, and ylang ylang. Honestly, I’m horrible at detecting scents, so to me it just smells very… floral. It’s nice though! I’m curious what their autumn/winter themed scents will be, since those tend to be my personal favorites.
Flicker & Flame also included a box of matches, which was a nice touch. I forgot to snap a photo of the bottom, but it says “Brighten Your Day” in gold script. Cute!
Overall, I enjoyed August’s Flicker & Flame box. The featured scent wasn’t my favorite, only because I’m not crazy about floral blends. That said, I’ll definitely still use it. However, if I chose not to, the included box makes it perfect for gifting.Browse more Indie and Artisan Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory

I’m all about candles, so I was excited to check out this subscription. While I didn’t love the particular scent, I did like the presentation and the cute matchbox that they included. I’d love a chance to check out their autumn/winter scents.
