New In: Candles.

Yankee have always been a little hit or miss for me. I love the scents but the candles in those 'jar' shaped pots very rarely burn evenly and I feel as if I've wasted a lot of product. Just after Christmas I managed to get a candle in one of these 'tumbler' type of jars and it burned perfectly and used every bit of the product, ever since then I've been converted to this style.

After having a rubbish day earlier this week, and being sent home from work ill, I thought I needed to treat myself. I spotted these is Asda in a gift pack, these two candles cost me £12, which I thought was a pretty good deal as they were around £8 each. 

The pack contained Pink Honeysuckle, which is a gorgeous sweet, florally scent, that's really fresh. I think it reminds me of a lovely smelling washing powder and fills the rooms with a gorgeous smell - definitely one for Spring. The other candle is Vanilla Frosting, which smells very much like the Christmas Cookie scent which is one of my all time faves. The smells is really sweet but not over powering and just makes me feel 'at home'. It's one of my go-to candles if I'm feeling a little down and want a comforting pick-me-up.

These are definitely my preferred style of Yankee Candle, along with the other styles in the Simply Home range. They seem to burn so much more evenly than the jars. Having said that, it still hasn't put me off wanting the Easter Yankee Candles - Bunny Cake sounds perfect!

Have you tried this style of Yankee?

  1. I picked up that set from Asda as well, and now I've almost finished them both. I don't know whether to buy the same again because I love both the scents or to try and find something new. I love Candles tho, especially Yankee ones cos the smell is always so amazing.
