What Delicious smells! And the way the wax melts is mesmerizingly cool, too! Love the little note card as well :). Could maybe come with an additional little accessory but the koozie is cool! Looking forward to next months box I’m sure they only get better and better!

Wanted to update my review. Been subscribing to this for about 6 months now. I can say hands down it is one of my favorites. The candles last a surprising long time and the scents are unique, complex, and nuanced. They are a lovely way to unwind and keep the stress at bay, especially while working from home and sheltering in place. I hope others get the please and comfort I get from the stimulating olfactory experience these candles provide. :)

This was a really pleasant surprise! I was a bit concerned after reading an earlier review about the scent being weak, but have found my first box to be quite nice. I noticed over time I acclimatized to the scent, but if I left the room for a few minutes and came back it was present again. I love that the 3 candle scents were very different from each other, allowing me to choose between a fresh earthy scent, a warm sweet scent, and a warm floral scent, based on mood. :) The mug was cute and classy, and I loved the bookmark. I've not yet tried the tea but was happy that it seemed like something to enjoy through the winter season.

The main draw back to this is the shipping cost (~$16,) about what I pay for my illumicrate book box from England). This is noted in the description, so I can't complain, but brought the total to $40. This overall price decreases...

Oh my days! I love, love, love the Outlander box! The candles smell amazing. I’m a picky candle person because I don’t like certain scents. I was concerned because one candle has a scent I don’t like however the minute I sniffed it I was happy to say I loved it,

Each of the items included in the box are so cool. I loved it all and I can’t wait to light one of the candles and relax later on tonight. I’m looking forward to next month!

Just received my first box and it is so far one of my favorite boxes now. I loved the candles and the pint glass. Definitely worth the box value. Can't wait to see what I get next!

Just received my Harry Potter Deluxe Story Box #20 and I'm in love! There is so much thought and love in these products!
It's not cheap but it's totally worth it!
Every item comes in a little bag so it's like opening a bunch of presents. I really enjoy the art print!
The candles smell really nice and the name of each candle made me smile and it made me reread the book they were referring to.

This box is cute. However, I was a little disappointed in the candle sizes and the bonus gift, The picture makes the candles appear much larger but since it was only my first box I know what to expect now. The candles smell great and I love the scent names. The bonus gift was candle wax melts with a sticker on it, not quite as "magical" as some of the reviews led me to believe the gift would be, but I am going to continue my subscription and see what next month brings!

Hi there! I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your first Story Box! The bonus items change each month, and wax melts had been requested several times, so I tried them out in February's boxes. The mini story boxes have the smaller 4 oz candles, and the deluxe boxes have the larger 9 oz candles. The deluxe boxes also include an additional large surprise item. I hope this helps, and I am glad you are continuing your subscription to see what else arrives! :-)

I wanted to love this. I tried to love this. And I came so, so close to loving this. The little gifts were fun (a pair of socks, a tin of tea), and the candle names were fantastic (Fluffy, Privet Drive, etc). And the packaging? The packaging is amazing! The candles come in a little silk bag and the entire thing looks like something straight out of Harry Potter. Where this fell a little short? The candle scents just weren't there. The candles smell amazing in the jar, but when lit the scent doesn't carry at all. We have a fairly small living room and I couldn't smell it when it was lit. If the candles were stronger, I would love this subscription. As is, I just really like it.

Had ordered this for from the Mothers Day specials....it was not delivered until weeks after Mothers Day. The candles were great however, one holder was broken. There was no book as indicated there would be but a charm instead.
Wicks, received, Words, failed to provide.

Hi Cheryl,
I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your Story Box! Books are not part of the subscription, so I apologize if there was any confusion in the listing. I am happy to replace your broken item, if you will just let me know which one you need.
Have a wonderful day!
