2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 5 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wooden Aromatherapy Box-holds 24x10ml
Really wanted to love this but was sadly disappointed by the craftsmanship..

Pro's: the top of the box as pictured is accurate and looks lovely. If you don't move or open(!) it too much it will do. It fits 24 bottles as described. As it is its main selling point, I'll repeat, the lid looks lovely. Vaguely polished/smooth feel to the box.

Con's: It is possible my expectations were set too high, or there is a reason why there is no pic of the interior, but it is constructed like I made it myself. The key issue with what I received was that the hinges are obviously and badly put on, with rough edges, and so the lid is at a slant and does not sit flush with the rest of the box. The very flimsy clasp is therefore being pulled across to rectify when closing and doesn't look or feel like it will hold up to this for long. The separation inside to accommodate 24 bottles was not exactly symmetrical (one at the back barely made it into its compressed gap - was someone drunk or did it get booted while in transit? - and would never let the lid drop back under own momentum otherwise suspect that will be off. Basically, it has the feel of, if accidentally dropped or not handled with care, it will bust apart into its various bits.

Ultimately, it will do for now as I need a box, but in hindsight it may have been worth paying a little extra for a more quality-controlled and potentially long-lasting item. Still love the design on the lid though. If this doesn't last for long I would not head for a repeat purchase. Would definitely not advise giving as a gift unless you pass if off as a home-made item made by your child. A very young child.
