Let’s dive in ~ this month’s Spotlight Vendor is Armadilla Wax Works ~  this brand is a Flickerbox favorite and the company is located in Flagstaff, AZ.  They are known for their layered candles, double fragrances and floating floral candles and have been artisan candles since 1971.  All of their candles are made in the USA in their workshop in north central Arizona.

Information Card

Another View Starting on the left:  Lemon Drop, Sweet Pea & Sage, MinTea Lavender, Floating Sunflower

Lemon Drop,  Sweet Pea & Sage and MinTea Lavender These three 3 x 3 inch pillar candles are from the Double Fragrance collection and are folks who love a rich, strong scent!  These candles just a single color, based on the scent and has a nice rustic finish ~ pebbly. They are poured with a special wax blend that is designed to have twice the fragrance ~ hence the name Double Fragrance ~ than their other candles while cleanly burning.   The bright lemon yellow Lemon Drop  (aptly named) has a nice pure lemon scent whereas the spring green Sweet Pea & Sage is a complex scent of a delicate floral with a herbal twist.  My favorite is MinTea Lavender, a beautiful aqua shade, where I really can pick up the lavender scent with just a hint of mint.   3 candles   ~ Armadilla Wax Works has a special that you can purchase 3 of these candles for $25.00

Floating Sunflower Candle ~ this is a handcrafted candle that is one of their more popular candles year round.  You just add this candle to a dish or glass cylinder, accent the bowl with glass pebbles or river stones and light the candle!  It is quite pretty and I have seen people put floating candle in pools or lakes.   This is unscented and has a burn time of 7 hours.  3 inches RV $3.60 

This month had some nice scents in it with the Double Fragrance candles ~ I especially love the MinTea Lavender and Sweet Pea & Sage.  I also love the colors of the candles and the sunflower candle is a nice surprise too ~ I will gift this, as I don’t really use floating candles.  This box’s value is $28.60 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.  I have very low expectations with Flickerbox, but this month’s value is very low indeed. I always mention this in each review, as I think you should have the proper expectation if you subscribe to FlickerBox.  I never expect to have a huge value placed on it.   Shipping costs for candles is expensive and the products are made by artisans, making their eco-friendly candles with their own scents and hand crafted, it is a great deal.  Also, some months are well over $40.00 in value, so it does even out in the end.

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