Not checking bags? Downsize to Apolis’ Transit Issue Travel Candle, which delivers the same woodsy scent but comes in at half the size.

Birchbox Breakdown

When you carry your favorite fragrance in your weekend bag, it doesn’t matter how disappointing your hotel room turns out to be—it can still hold a candle to home. Housed in a portable apothecary jar, this travel-sized soy wax candle brings the comforting aroma of fig and cypress to your suite—or windowless “Deluxe Double” as it may be—to place the familiarity of home base front of mind.

How it Works

Each 8 oz. amber jar, handcrafted in the United States, holds a soy wax candle with a burn life of 40 hours. The screw top lid makes it easy to pack up and go.

How to Use

Trim the wick to 1/4 in. before use—and be careful of the glass, which may become hot to the touch if you’re burning the midnight oil.

US made Amber glass Jar, clean burning domestic soy wax, all natural cotton wicks and perfume grade fragrances

I love this candle

This is a great candle with a great subtle scent. It fills my office and isn't overbearing. I would love to try the other scents too.

Would not buy

It's a small candle and I'm not sure what you would really use it for? I don't carry travel candles to hotels and I have big candles in my bathroom now. Waste of space in my box!

Love This Candle

I'm not a huge candle person so to speak--they're all fine and good. So when I saw this in my box, I didn't jump for joy, but I lit it up because why not. This candle is amazing! It smells like a man thats just showered and honestly what could beat that. Everyone that comes in compliments it. Honestly, my only complaint was that it was travel size and I want to burn it nonstop. I would absolutely recommend this candle to anyone!

Love the smell

I love the smell of this candle. I am usually not a fan of strong scents so this candle was perfect. It leaves my house smelling great. I got it in my box and ordered the largest size immediately after trying it the first time!

Smells great

For those of us that don't travel that much, the soothing scent can help you relax at home after a day at the office just as well as it can on the road

Could do better

The scent of the candle is great. It's a nice and masculine but falls short when you actually burn it. You can't smell the candle unless you're right on top of it and even then it just still not strong enough.

Manliest Candle I've Ever Owned (Only Candle I've Ever Owned)

I have to give it to Birchbox on this one. I was a little skeptic at first, but after lighting the candle I knew I'd be buying another one when it runs out. Every other candle that I've experienced has been girly or fruity. It's a relaxing smell that leaves my room smelling awesome.

It's the price that smells bad.

I think the candle is great - not too overpowering and a great blend of masculine/feminine, but for $44? Give me a break - I could find comparable ones at Target for less than $10.

Great for the bathroom

I use this when I travel to relax and unwind once i get back to the hotel room after a long day of work.

Masculine

Very masculine scent that does not over power. Great travel candle as well. Nice display and ease for travel. Maybe more expensive than I would typically pay but well worth it.
