This month’s Flickerbox settled on a theme called “East Coast Love“, which will feature “three perfectly bold spring fragrances“. 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: East Coast Candle Co “Sweet Grapefruit”, Cape Cod Soy Candle “Cranberry”, KarmaLit “Rhode Island Greening Apple”
East Coast Candle Co “Sweet Grapefruit” This is the biggest candle of them all, at 9 oz! This is the first of two candle companies that I have not heard before and are new to me. This soy candle is hand poured in small batches, to ensure not only quality, but unique scents. They are based in two states on the east coast ~ Lynchburg, Virginia and Reading, Massachusetts. This tall creamy soy candle in a glass jar has a lovely sweet grapefruit scent that isn’t cloying. It is very fresh scented and I also smell orange in here. It reminds me of a nice fresh glass of grapefruit juice. Burn Time 72 to 81 hours 9 oz RV $12.00
Cape Cod Soy Candle “Cranberry” I have received Cape Code Soy Candles before, but it was rose scented ~ I gave it to my mother and she loved it! I am glad that this is a scent that I can enjoy without sneezing 🙂 Cape Cod Candles use 100% American grown GMO free soy wax with a hemp wick, glass jelly jar with a metal screw top lid and is phthalate and dye free. This is a warmly scented candle with the fresh tang of cranberries and spice ~ “A blend of tart New England cranberries infused with orange peel +cardamom” . Cape Cod Soy Candles are hand poured, 100% vegan and dye free. They are made 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
KarmaLit “Rhode Island Greening Apple” Karmalit is a new company to me, and this candle smells so much like fresh apples. It is not a fake scent, but so mouthwatering juicy! Greening apples are very similar to Granny Smith apples and the scent is so delicious. KarmaLit is an etsy shop from Denver, CO and they use 100% natural soy wax, fragrance oils and pour their candles in a re-usable mason jar. Each candle sold will have a part of its proceeds go directly to non-profit organizations that are education, health/fitness, or overall child happiness based. Burn time is 20+ hours 4 oz mini candle RV $10.00
I love all three sets in this month’s Flickerbox ~ I am a huge foodie and fresh fruit scents are a weakness of mine! Apples, citrus and cranberries ~ it cannot get any better than this! This box’s value is $34.00 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.
