Welcome to this unboxing of a the I Smell Books subscription box for December 2021.

I have found some wonderful subscription boxes. My YouTube channel is full of video unboxing’s if you are interested. I also share my unboxing’s on my sister website for those boxes that are not books.

By far, my favorite boxes are the ones with the books in them. And those unboxing’s I share on this website.

I purchased this box from the I Smell Books Subscription Book Box website. I did not subscribe, I got this box as a one-time purchase. This is a monthly subscription service. You can choose the YA fiction or Classic fiction box. The boxes include one new fiction book, and 4+ theme related items.

What did I get in this box? I am going to share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book or the items I received, but instead will be for the unboxing experience.


The box was arrived well labeled so I knew what was inside.

The first item in the box was a Rose enamel pin.

The second item in the box was a folding fan.

The third item in the box was a G Clef pencil.

The fourth item in the box was a package of Phantom Dark ground coffee.

The fifth item in the box was a Rose spoon.

The sixth item in the box was a rose key clip.

The seventh item in the box was a pair of music staff socks.

The eighth item in the box was a G Clef note stand.

The ninth item in the box was a metal G Clef bookmark and rose bookmark.

The tenth item in the box was a set of book related postcards.

The last item in the box was the featured book, The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston LeRoux.

This is everything I received in the box.

What I liked:

  • I could make a one-time purchase of the box without subscribing.
  • Fun and unique lit inspired products.
  • Everything was packaged well.
  • Quality collectible book.

What I didn’t like:

  • Nothing

Overall Opinion

I really enjoyed opening this box. The products were fun and curated well for the book. There were so many nice products that I can’t even pick a favorite. I loved the flexible leather copy of the book. I’m keeping an eye on this service for possible subscribing. There is discount when subscribing versus purchasing one time.

The subscription service is $45.99 per box (classic)/$35.99 per box (YA) plus $12 shipping.
