Birchbox Breakdown

Decorative candles are hard to resist (at any given time we can have five or six in our living room alone), and these long scented matches add a lovely, fragrant fuel to the fire. Don’t even think about keeping these hidden away—packaged in beautifully designed boxes, they’re the perfect complement to any room’s aesthetic.

How it Works

The chic patterned box makes these oversized matches much more glamorous than a regular lighter. As for the scents, Anemone is a fruity combination of citrus, apple, clove, and patchouli. Blue Coral is an ocean-inspired blend of lemon leaf, vetiver, and coriander accented by sea salt, while Driftwood Sage offers blue sage blended with wild lavender and eucalyptus.

How to Use

Take out a match, strike the box, and light your candle of choice.

Cute matches
Purchased

The match box looks cute up with my candles and the long matches are great for lighting older, lower candles.

Scented, but not really.
Purchased

I had hoped for a nice release of fragrance with these, but this was not the case. They have a very very slight hint of scent, but nothing much. It's nice that they are long, since I find myself getting burned trying to light multiple candles with one match. In addition, the scent of a burnt match stick is one of my favorite things, so I like to let these just burn down the stick. However, there seems to be a flame retardant additive near the middle of the stick as they all stop burning at this point.

Cute & Functional
Purchased

These matches are cute, sturdy, and perfect for lighting candles that have burned down without lighting your fingers on fire. I purchased the "Anemone" scent. To me, they don't smell very strongly and the smell dissipates quickly after lighting.

These are fun to have around. Better than cheap looking matches from the grocery store. Not cheap to pass up.

Fun for a gift
Purchased

I bought these to add to a mother's day gift I sent to my mom. Out of all the fun stuff sent to her; candle, tea, nail polish and more - she raved about the matches. She loved the smell and kept talking about the packaging and "how beautiful the matches" were. She raved so much I think I need to splurge and get some for myself.

Weak smell, but LOVE this!
Purchased

I got these because I thought scented matches would be cool, plus I needed something to reach wicks deep down in partly burned candles. Thick, sturdy, real easy to light (no fidgeting with fold over paper packets). The only letdown is that the smell is barely there, it's so faint that if I didn't know they were supposed to be scented I probably wouldn't notice. I got the blue (cedar, maybe?). The packaging is really pretty, and looks a lot nicer sitting on a table than a regular old book of matches, so that kind of makes up for the lack of special smell. It's probably nearly impossible to come up with a match that doesn't smell like matches though, so it's kind of expected.
