I had seen the March theme on Flickerbox’s IG and I thought it was just “Farmhouse”. Well, I received my Flickerbox today and it is FRENCH Farmhouse, which is so much more pleasing!! French scents are things like lavender and lemons, so I am really excited about this box! Let’s see what Flickerbox actually put in this month’s box! What is Flicker Box?

Starting on the left, going clockwise: Lit & Co “Almond”, Eco Candle Co Soy Tealights “Chamomile & Sage”, Woodfire Candle Company “Lavender Lemon”
Lit & Co “Almond” I’ve received Lit & Co in the past and this is a great company out of Boise, Idaho. This is a beautiful all natural soy candle in a lovely patterned amber glass jar. I have never seen Lit & Co use this type of jar before and it is beautiful ~ I believe this jar is exclusive to Flickerbox! Lit & Co is an etsy shop and Almond is one of their new Spring seasonal scents ~ and it is divine! It does smell like warm, lovely almonds and the wax is a natural creamy off-white. These candles are made in small batches and hand poured and they use pure fragrances, cotton braided wicks and 100% soybean wax made from botanical oils 45+ hours burn time. 8 oz candle RV $15.00
Eco Candle Co “Chamomile & Sage” Soy Tealights Once again, Eco Candle makes it into my Flickerbox ~ this time with 10 soy tea lights in a lovely sage green shade. I can really smell the chamomile with an hint of sage lurking behind it ~ Eco Candle describes it as “herbal sage with the soft and calming scent of chamomile flowers.” Each tea light has a burn time of 10 hours ~ so 100 hours total! Eco Candle Co is located in Appleton, WI and this is a 100% soy candle, made from midwest-grown soybeans. 10 tealights RV $10.00
Woodfire Candle Company “Lavender Lemon” Jelly Jar Wood Wick Soy Candle I believe this is the first time I have received a candle from Woodfire Candle Company. This scent is probably my favorite and it is what I imagine a French farmhouse smelling like ~ all citrus and herbal ~ “Fresh cut lavender blended with sweet orange, tangy lemon peel, hints of green with a base of orange flower and vanilla” The color of this candle is a pale creamy yellow, reminisent of lemons, and it is in a glass jar with a tin screw-on lid. Woodfire uses American grown soybeans for their wax and hand pours their candles, using a soft wood wick ~ which crackle as they burn to give the feeling of being near a fireplace. Woodfire Candle Company is located by shores of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota Burn time is about 25 hours. 4 oz RV $12.00
Another fantastic month from Flickerbox! I am always debating if I should cancel it, but every month is so wonderful and I get scents that I would not normally think of purchasing myself, so I think I am hooked on this subscription. I am really happy with this month’s box. This box’s value is $37.00 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.
