Let’s see what’s in my Skeleton Candles March 2016 soy candle box!
The box! I like the personalized seal — nice touch! (Oh, and it’s 100% true — I chose the 3 scents that I wanted, so it was indeed “handcrafted just for me”. 🙂 )
A peek inside. Hello there, little tins of scented goodness.
Ginger Lime – I love ginger tea and ginger-y things in general, so I had to include this candle as one of my picks. It features a traditional gingery scent combined with a burst of lime for a nice, clean (yet sweet) scent. I LOVE it! Oh, this candle (as well as the others in the box) contains 4 ounces of wax and has a burn time of 45-50 hours.
Roasted Coffee – I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this one. Coffee-scented candles tend to either smell amazing, or totally miss the mark and just smell… weird. When I first took a whiff of this, I loved it. But the more I sniff it, the less coffee-like it smells. Maybe it’ll win me over when I actually burn it? We’ll see!
Spa Day – Now this one I cannot STOP sniffing. It smells amazing! It features a blend of lemongrass, black currant, patchouli, and sugar cane (I think anyway — the website lists different notes than on the label). It definitely has a strong citrus scent, which I love. I think this is actually my favorite of the bunch.
Skeleton Candles is a great subscription box for anyone who enjoys trying out new scented candles on the regular. They have a lot of awesome scent (and box size) options and I love the fact that they use 100% soy wax with cotton/paper wicks. And no phthalates, dyes, or additives! — Remember, you can save 10% on your first month just by using this link!
