River Song knows the situation.
This is an UN-BOXING post.
We like stuff.
We LOVE book stuff like BOOK BOXES!

Please link back to our blog if you too are a lover of showing off stuff on Sundays.
The MERAKI CANDLE BOX is a monthly UK based bookish candle subscription box. Each box contains 4 themed candles from different fandoms a bookmark and a few other things too. This is not a box you can subscribe to, instead they generally go on sale on the 1st of each month at 12pm GMT on the Meraki Candles Etsy page. (linked previously)
In this box we got:
1. Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon Candle
2. Smaug from The Hobbit Candle
3. Drogon from A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Candle
4. Saphira from the Inheritance Cycle Candle
5. Bookmark by Lexyolivia
6. Abraxos lotion by Behind the Pages
7. Dragon Scale necklace by Cogs and Curiosities
8. pyro art pirnt by @maliha_z_art
Toothless – hot chocolate and sweet orange
Smaug – cinnamon, clove and buttermilk
Saphira – lavender, rosemary and geranium
Drogon – eucalyptus and spearmint
Toothless stands out the most for me, it smells delicious! I have a soft scented batch so the other three smell just as good as each other. The buttermilk soothes the cinnamon and clove and while I think I’d have liked Saphira more with a stronger smell, the soft scents means that I actually like the scent of Drogon! I’m not a fan of eucalyptus and spearmint usually but this has a pleasant, almost grassy smell to it. If the scent shifts any more this might just be my second favourite!
I have several lip balms from Behind the Pages and like the lip balms the lotion is heavily scented. It has dragon blood, fire, rain, sage and rose fragrance oils in it and it feels nice on the skin. The necklace is all pretty and sparkly in the light and while I’m not big on jewellery right now, I’ll certainly be keeping this out for decoration! Plus the bookmark has some kind of truth to it, it has to be said. Yay dragons!

Man I love these boxes! Has the next one shipped yet?! This month the theme is Far Away Lands.
The Anime Quarterly box is coming this month too and it’s Ghibli themed. I hope there’s a Howls moving castle candle!
