Scent From – January 2017: Scent From The Alps

Scent From – January 2017: Scent From The Alps

January’s Scent From box sees them travelling to The Alps for inspiration for this month’s candle and home fragrance subscription box. When I think of the wintery Alps, I imagine lots of fresh snow, pine and clean woody scents from the great outdoors, combined with cosy spices and warm log fires from inside the chalets.

Scent From have summed up the Alps theme in a very similar way with lots of spicy scented products and they’ve pleasantly surprised me with one or two of the contents.

Here’s what was inside:-Scent From The Alps Large Tin Candle

Scent From have teamed up with Shearer Candles to produce this special version of the brand’s bestselling ‘Spice’ fragrance (from their premium Spa Collection) in a cool Alps printed tin candle which reminds me of a Christmas jumper!  Made from natural wax, it’ll burn for up to 40 hours, and creates an instant warm and cosy atmosphere with its subtle spa-like, clean woody and spicy scent.Shearer Candles Natural Spa Hand & Body Lotion in Spice

As a beauty blogger, I always enjoy receiving anything beauty related in any subscription box, so it was great to see a hand and body lotion in this month’s box! I’m not sure if this will be a regular feature in the Scent From boxes, or if they’re just changing things up a bit, but I think that scented beauty products like this are a good tie-in with the overall travelling/fragrance theme. This luxury hand and body lotion is a large 250ml size and comes from the same Spa Collection range as the matching candle above. The texture of it is great (hydrating but not sticky or greasy) and it smells beautiful. Lots of Patchouli and Cedar which I love and plenty of wintery spices.Shearer Candles Travel Tin Candle in Cinnamon Spice 

I tend to burn a lot of Cinnamon scented candles over the Winter months because they are so comforting and warming, and this candle from Shearer Candles is no exception. As it’s a smaller travel candle, it doesn’t have a huge amount of scent throw, but it’s still pretty strong thanks to the strength of the Cinnamon in the formula. It would be good to use in a small bedroom on a cold night like tonight. Kikkerland White Cotton String Lights

For this month’s home accessory, Scent From has included a pack of White Cotton String Lights from Kikkerland which is a perfect match for the Alps theme. They look like crisp snowballs and sort of remind me of Chinese lanterns as the cotton is intrinsically interwoven around the individual balls of light. With 6ft of cord, you have plenty of lights to wrap these around a mirror or part of a bed frame to add some light decoration to your bedroom or living space. They make a nice change from the fairy lights that you see everywhere in the shops and feel more grown up.

An interesting variety of products from Scent From and I loved The Alps theme – curious to see where they travel to next!

Our score: 8.8/ 10

I loved The Alps theme as woody and spicy scents are some of my favourites to experience in candles. The addition of the luxury hand & body lotion in a matching scent was a pleasant surprise and the white cotton lights are a lovely home accessory to receive.
