Unboxing February 2016 Flicker Box!

Daydream is the Romantic February theme from Flickerbox and on Flickerbox’s IG account, they teased us with some scent choices “Infinite fragrance possibilities… Which ones are you daydreaming about? Coconut mango…cedarwood… something musky”  I love those three scents, so let’s see what Flickerbox actually put in this month’s box!    What is Flicker Box?

Flicker Box is inspired by a love and appreciation for handmade candles. We believe that people appreciate products produced by quality artisans made in the United States. We want to connect candle lovers with people who love to make candles.

Each Flicker Box contains a variety of artisanal candles made from candle artists from around the United States. We share their story and ship subscribers a delightfully curated box right to their doorstep. Flicker box costs as low as $25/month and can be purchased as an automatically-renewing monthly subscription or 3, 6, or 12 month term subscriptions.  from http://myflickerbox.com/about

Starting on the left, going clockwise:  Cape Cod Soy Candle  “Sea Salt and Wild Rose”, Illume “Coconut Milk Mango”,  Mosley Lane “Cinnamon Cocoa”


Cape Cod Soy Candle “Sea Salt and Wild Rose”   I haven’t received a candle from Cape Code Soy Candle and this one looks very nice ~ 100% American grown GMO free soy wax  with a hemp wick, glass jelly jar with a metal screw top lid and is phthalate free.   This is a rose scented candle, so I am thinking this would be great to gift as a Mother’s Day present!   The scent is described as “sea salt, sand dunes and wild rose {rosa rugosa: beach plum}”  The silver lid is a bit dented (I always have that issue with Flickerbox candles!) but it is the scent that counts!   Cape Cod Soy Candles are hand poured, 100% vegan and dye free.  They are made right here in my neck of the woods, in Cape Cod, MA.   Part of the sales proceeds go to the National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, MA.   Use promo code CANDLELOVE10 to save 10% off any purchase at Cape Cod Soy Candles.    Burn time is 40+ hours.  4 oz  mini candle RV $12.00


Illume “Coconut Milk Mango” Vanity Tin I love Illume candles ~ they are very unique in their vanity tin concept ~ the tin lid comes all the way over the candle so it makes it very handy as a travel tin as well.  This beautiful tin in a  pink and gold birch tree bark print  opens up to reveal a creamy white soy candle that smells delightful ~ it is sweetly scented with  coconut and tropical fruits, such as mango and pineapple with vanilla, and reminds me of the tropics.    I love this scent!!  I really wish it was a bigger candle ~ but I see that Illume does carry the larger sizes on their website, so I will have to check it out.  “Indulge in the luscious tropical cocktail of your fantasies. Island pineapple, freshly-sliced mango, lush papaya, and coconut milk infused with sugarcane and Tahitian vanilla.”  Burn time 20 hours 3 oz RV $10.00

Top Notes ~~ island pineapple,  juicy mango  Middle  ~~ lush papaya, coconut milk  Base ~~ Tahitian vanilla, sugarcane


Mosley Lane “Cinnamon Cocoa” This is the show stopper in this month’s box.  Flickerbox paired up with Mosley Lane again.   Mosley Lane is an eco-friendly family owned business from Ohio and  this huge candle in a mason glass jar with a black screw top lid looks pretty unassuming.  Until I took off the lid and sniffed it.  OMG.  This is really a lovely cocoa cinnamon vanilla scented candle.   I can almost taste it, it smells so good.  Mosley Lane’s hand poured candles are made with 100% USA ingredients:  100% natural dye free soy wax and beeswax blend, lead free, natural fiber cotton wick and concentrated fragrance oil that are phthalate free. “Hot cocoa with hints of melted cream and a subtle kiss of ground cinnamon.”  Burn time is 50+ hours  11 oz RV $14.49


I love all of the candles, including the one I cannot use due to allergies, as I now have a lovely candle for my Mom!  The other two candles, Coconut Milk Mango and Cinnamon Cocoa, are spectacular in their vivid and bold scents.  I totally adore foodie scents and these two have scent pairings that I love.  I am really happy with this month’s box.   This box’s value is  $36.49 and I paid $34.00 for my box, as I am on a month to month subscription and I am grandfathered in, so my shipping is included in the price tag. For new subscribers, you would pay the additional $5.95 in shipping.

Flickerbox also has a store, where you purchase candles that were featured in their past boxes.
