A festive Yankee Candle haul...


I couldn’t help myself, payday for me usually involves a making a purchase in the Yankee Candle store. I normally opt for the larger jars as they last the longest but because they released their Halloween and Christmas collections I thought I would go WILD and buy the limited edition scents. I opted for the Wax Tarts as they are the cheapest at around 99p, this allowed me to buy a good few without my card hating me. This is a good way of trying out different scents without committing to the full sized jar as they can be quite pricey.

I purchased two of the most popular halloween scents out of the four. The first Halloween scent I purchased was the most recommended and that is Ghostly Treats (£1.15). This smells like freshly toasted marshmallows. I will be burning this first I think. The other one is Candy Corn, in America there is a sweet called ‘Candy Corn’ and so the Candy Corn (£1.15) candle supposedly smells like that. To me it smells like a mixture of honey and caramelised sugar, quite pungent but very autumnal. I also like the fact it is  orange. 

I had quite a big list for the Christmas scents but many of them were sold out unfortunately. Luckily I was still able to get the others I had wanted. Snowflake Cookie (£1.20) smells just like sugary icing, I adore the muted pink colour of it. Red Apple Wreath (£0.99) smells like crisp red apples and cinnamon, very Christmassy. Candy Cane Lane (£0.99) smells like a mixture of peppermint and vanilla and finally I also picked up Christmas Eve (£0.99) which smells warm and very fruity, I am excited to burn this on the 24th! The other Christmas ones I still need to buy are Angel Wings (£0.99) and Christmas Garland (£0.99).

Two other wax tarts I picked up were Fireside Treats (£0.99) which again smells like toasted marshmallows and Wedding Day (£0.99) which smells like freshly cut roses with a hint of fruit. These two are available all year round.

I can’t wait to start using them, I will be burning Ghostly Treats first. The wax tarts last around 8 hours but as with the majority of yankee candles you only need to take the wrapper/lid off and the scent is dispersed throughout the whole room. I will be using a quarter of each tart at a time, this allows me to change the scent up often without wasting it. Also the good thing about a tart burner is you can mix together many different wax tarts and make a whole new scent.

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you have purchased any Yankee Candles or if you are going to?

  2. Candy Corn sounds amazing. I love anything sweet scented, no matter what time of the year!
    I really need to buy some Yankee candles - I was sent a few of the votives so now I'm hoping to move onto the larger candles, but I haven't found one to commit to yet!
