I’ll admit it: I love getting mail. And, thanks to gift of the month clubs, I can treat myself to a special delivery every couple of weeks. As Taste of Home’s Senior Shopping Editor, I’ve tried everything from coffee clubs to plant subscriptions. But there’s one service that’s truly stolen my heart. Say hello to Vellabox. It’s a candle subscription that embodies chic coziness all year long.

What is a Vellabox candle subscription?

Candles are personal. And Vellabox takes the guesswork out of delivering the perfect scent—either to you or a loved one. Let me show you how it works in my Vellabox review.

First, you take a short quiz identifying your favorite scent profiles, where you like to burn candles, scent strength, burning frequency and more. From there, you choose between three size options: Lucerna (4-ounce candle), Ignis (8-ounce candle) or Vivere (16-ounce candle). Then, sit back, relax and wait for scented candle bliss to appear on your doorstep.

Each box includes a bonus gift—think a lip balm, air freshener or trinket tray—and a card detailing your candle of the month. Choose to receive a Vellabox delivery monthly, or pre-pay for 3, 6 or 12 months at a time. U.S. orders ship free!

Beyond the subscription, you can peruse the Vellabox shop to stock up on your favorite scents and candle accessories.

Why I Love It

At this point, pretty much every candle in my home is from Vellabox. I’ve been testing the service on and off since 2020, so you know this Vellabox review is worth it.

Without fail, I tear into every candle box like a kid on Christmas morning. Even though I’ve identified my favorite scents and have at least a general idea of what to expect, it’s still so much fun to smell each option in real life.

Each Vellabox candle is artisan-made from 100% natural wax, cotton wicks and phthalate-free fragrance oils. As someone with a sensitivity to intense fragrances, these candles burn more cleanly than other brands I’ve tried.

Plus, the packaging is impeccable. Each candle is wrapped in a seasonally appropriate cloth bag and then tucked inside a box with the surprise goodie and candle card. Over several months of testing, I have not once received a broken or damaged candle. And those cloth bags? I love that they’re more sustainable than bubble wrap, and I have found endless uses for ‘em around my house.

To burn the candles, I start by trimming the wick. (This step is critical to prevent wick mushrooming and scary-high flames.) I also make sure I have plenty of time for the initial burn. You want to create an even layer of melted wax all the way across the top of the candle to prevent tunneling. The larger the candle, the longer this process takes. I like to tackle the initial burn during a movie night or when settling in with a good book. Tough job, I know.

While I’ve sampled dozens of candles through the years, Autumn Nights is my latest seasonal obsession. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy and the absolute best way to set the mood for a fall Gilmore Girls binge session. (Especially when I place it under a candle warmer lamp!)

You can tell from my Vellabox review that it also makes a great gift. It’s my go-to when I don’t want the headache of shipping a gift myself or when someone’s birthday sneaks up on me. Ordering takes mere minutes, and I know they’ll enjoy the gift month after month.
