Pick up one (or more) of Illume’s Sketchbook Ceramic Candles for a functional work of art.

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 to Use

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

My favorite matches!
Purchased

I love candles and I always insist on using matches to light them (lighters just take away some of the fun). These are my new favorite matches! Cute box, good quality matches, the scented matches are nice. I never get one that doesn't light or splinters when I strike it. I will definitely purchase more of these.

I pride myself on having anything one might need in my purse. I don't smoke but these are delightful to pull out if someone needs a light. Packaged beautifully,to set out by candles for lighting.

Okay product - the fragrance is a little weak
Purchased

I found the fragrance factor of these matches to be a bit disappointing. They don't seem to smell much when lit.

Love but no smell
Purchased

I love matches, especially for the bathroom. I was excited to smell the fragrant matches, so I ordered 1 of each kind. I was disappointed when they came in, they have no smell whatsoever. I do love the boxes they come in and they are still very cute in the bathroom and I do love the smell of sulfur. While I was let down on the smell aspect, I still find them so adorable I'll definately buy them again just for the design.

Must have!!
Purchased

Illume Oversized Matches are such a great buy! I love them for tall candles and the box is cute enough to let sit out! Nice for part of a gift when giving a candle too! I plan to order in every color!

Will always want a box on hand
Purchased

There is no smell to these, but I love the just the same. great to light 5 candles in a row, without burning your fingers. Good enough as a fireplace match too. I think these would make a great gift with a candle and bath oil or other bath goodies from Birchbox.

Great box of long stem matches. Easy to light. Very attractive box. Cannot smell the special fragrance, but it was not a big deal to me.
