The April box was Far Away Lands! This is my third Meraki Candles box and I was so excited for this box because of the places featured. I hadn’t heard of two of them, but I had heard of the other two featured lands. Although I am a rep, I will be giving you my honest opinion of these candles, although I make no apologies for loving all the candles because they’re so gorgeous!
So first all, the box included four candles as well as a few goodies which you can see in the picture above.
The goodies were:
- A bookmark by Till & Dill
- Tote bag by Bookworm Boutique
- Camp Half-Blood badge
- The info card bookmark
I loved all these goodies, especially the bookmarks and badges! I also loved the bag!
And now for the candles! Included was:
I can’t wait to share with you what I thought of each of them!
Elendel | Inspired by: Mistborn | Scents: Jasmine, Amber and Musk
Wow, I don’t really know how to describe this one. It smells really lovely and reminds me a little of something that I can’t quite put my finger on. I feel like it’s quite a unique scent. I can definitely smell the musk scent and I can pick up another scent which is the jasmine. To be honest, these 3 scents together have made a really lovely candle.
Essos | Inspired by: Game of Thrones | Scents: Lemon, Orange and Aromatic Woods
This one is a little different to the other candles. Its scent is perhaps a little more tangy because of the lemon and orange. I think the orange does overpower the lemon ever so slightly, but I think the lemon comes through as more of an after smell. The aromatic woods are definitely there. It’s like a tangy wood smell, to sum it up!
Rivendell | Inspired by: The Lord of the Rings | Scents: Wildflower and Cashmere Woods
Rivendell is a really fresh scent and smells exactly like it says on the tin! The cashmere woods comes through when sniffing this candle and reminds me almost of pine trees when I inhale a lot of it (that sounds odd, but if you take a really long sniff of it, more scents come through). I think this is definitely my favourite out of these three as it smells so fresh with a hint of flowers.
Narnia | Inspired by: | Scents: Menthol, Lavender and Pine
Narnia is possibly my favourite out of the four candles. All 3 scents listed for this candle come through to make a really gorgeous candle. I can definitely smell the lavender and pine. The menthol is also definitely there which I think makes the pine stand out a little more and gives it a little bit of a minty scent.
In all honesty it’s hard to choose my favourite, but I think it has to either be Rivendell or Narnia!
Now onto a closer look at the extra items!
Here is the pretty design inspired by Lord of the Rings, created by Bookworm Boutique. I have never owned an item by Bookworm Boutique before, but I’ve always wanted something so this is perfect!
We received some Camp Half-Blood pins, which you can see above. I was lucky enough to receive two, however decided to send them to another bookstagrammer who was interested in one of them! I’ve only read the first two Percy Jackson books but have really enjoyed them!
On the left, there’s a closer look at the bookmark that Till & Dill designed. I really love this design as it’s so pretty and I love the blue/white colouring! This is my second Till & Dill bookmark which I super love and I am hoping to buy more as the designs are so gorgeous!
So that’s the April Meraki box and I really loved it. I think my favourite candle is probably Rivendell, but it’s a really tough choice! It smells really fresh and woodsy, but also has florally hints to it which I like. If you received this box, which candle was your favourite?
