Bookish Spotlights: Review of Alchemy & Ink “Star-Crossed” Luxe Monthly Candle Subscription Box

This is a brand new subscription box from Alchemy & Ink, March is the first box of this new subscription and I will be reviewing the Luxe (full box) subscription.

This is the first of a new monthly box from Alchemy & Ink. This box has two levels for people to chose from, a basic level with just one 9oz candle. Whereas the Luxe level subscription comes with that same 9oz candle, plus another one and a 12oz candle and two other goodies! This first box also had a mini art print and perfume in it, along with a box of matches. I’m not sure if the same items will be in every box besides the size and amount of candles. I don’t think they will be the same, which is a great and will leave us subscribers surprised. 

I splurged and got the Luxe cult box and plan to keep getting them, I think I’d get heart sick if I had to stop and miss out on these goodies. But, I completely fell in love with all these scents! I cannot stop smelling all the candles and perfume. So yummy!

The mini art print and Dark Reylo had me screaming. I love Reylo from Star Wars so much, if you haven’t noticed yet. For those of you who aren’t sure what I’m talking about-I’m talking about the romance ship (relationship) in Star Wars. Rey and Ben Solo (also known as Kylo Ren) = Reylo. The artist for the Dark Reylo prayer candle and mini art print (one side at least) was done by from instagram and I have not been able till now, to get my hands on one of her Reylo prints (or pins made of them).

Anyway, I freaked out over these items and can’t wait to display and light them up-so I can smell these yummy scents all the time. If this first box from the candle cult says anything… Then the rest of these boxes will be crazy wicked!

So far we know that the April theme is, “Love Makes Monsters of Us All”. May theme will be, “Dark Academia”. I will say this again, i can’t wait to get more of these boxes!

Rating of box: 5 out of 5 stars.
