I have been collecting candles for years, so I was absolutely thrilled to receive this beautiful selection of the new winter range from Yankee Candle to review. The candles arrived very well packaged, in a rather large box. I couldn’t wait to get them out and light them. Yankee Candle candles come in a quite a few different sizes (small, medium and large); I was sent 4 large jars. The scents were Christmas Magic, Spiced White Coca, The Perfect Tree and Crackling Wood Fire from The Perfect Christmas Collection.
As soon as I took the lid off the Christmas Magic candle, I could smell a delightful fragrance of cinnamon. The candle is bright red, and presented beautifully with a festive picture, on the front of the jar. Once lit, I was pleasantly surprised how much the candle filled our living room with a real Christmassy fragrance. It burns lovely, and it was everything I thought it would be.
The Spiced White Coca candle was stunning too. It’s a cream candle, with a pleasant sweet caramel fragrance to it. Again, you could smell it as soon you opened the jar; it smelt gorgeous once it was lit. As the evening went on, the aroma was still quite strong, but it wasn’t too overpowering. Each candle has a burning time of approximately 150 hours. I think this is excellent value for money.
The Perfect Tree candle is very nice, but I must say it took a bit longer for the scent to spread around the house. It’s green with a fresh pine scent, and again has a lovely festive picture on the front of the jar. It would make a lovely Christmas present.
Last but certainly not least, was the Cracking Wood Fire candle. This is gorgeous! The aroma of nutmeg, and amber is very warm and relaxing. It gives off an amazing scent, which fills the whole house with a nice warm cosy feel. It’s a lovely shade of grey, and looks gorgeous on my fireplace as a centrepiece. I’ve had several candles in the past, but this one now has to be my favourite.
Yankee Candle candles are fantastic products! They are good quality, long lasting and smell divine! They are a great way to get your home smelling lovely. I would definitely recommend them to all my family and friends. They make the perfect birthday or Christmas present, or to just simply treat yourself. I was really happy with the candles, and will definitely be purchasing more from the Yankee Candle range in the near future!
RRP: £23.99 each (large jar)
