Yankee Doodle Do

Another post mentioning candles. Yes candles are the new black, or red, or yellow, or whatever colour of these vibrant Yankee Candles you may choose. I really like Yankee Candles and do think they’re probably some of the most interesting scents around, and I particularly like how they come in their own fancy pants jars too! I don’t like commiting to just one big jar though and I can’t afford to buy more than one at a time either…. A great way to try Yankee Candles at a more purse friendly price is by getting your little paws on some of the samplers. They’re basically just smaller versions of the biggers ones but weigh in at a puny £1.80 each versus the £10+ commitment of the larger varieties. Here are a few of my favourites so far:
1. Vanilla Lime – a love light and fresh lime scent with a sweet undertone of creamy vanilla.
2. Black Cherry – Think black forest gateaux without the sickly sweet side.
3. Honey Spice – A nice little twist on the classic honey scent with a nice hint of clove and vanilla.
4. Mango Peach Salsa – Another really refreshing fragrance which is so fruity!
5. Red Velvet – This one can get a little sickly but it’s a lovely cakey smell with a hint of chocolate I thought!
What are you favourite scents to try? I really like either vanilla and nutty ones or refreshing fruity smells. I think the only Yankee Candle I’ve tried so far that I wasn’t keen on was the Vanilla Cupcake! Wayyyy to sickly and I’m currently sniffing the wonders of an apple air freshener one in my car!

I love Yankee Candles, especially the Vanilla Lime one :)Really sensible buying the little ones to test them as they are so expensive!

I really like their mango peach ones! I agree that it's better (and cheaper) to try out the smaller sample sizes rather than committing to a large jar. Clintons did a mammoth sale once where I got a pack of mango peach salsa tealights for a mere £3. BARGAIN!

Red Velvet? How did I not know this existed until now. I'll have to have a smell of that.. lol. My favourite is a lemony scent, I can't remember the same but it's rather sweet smelling. I tend to just buy one Yankee candle in the spring/summer and then another at this time of year. I do however pick up a few smaller ones in the January sales, I find if I go to Card shops after Christmas they are always selling off their festive Yankee's 🙂

I think I might actually prefer Woodwick candles to Yankee ones, just bought a whole bunch of their halloween range on sale. Scaramal Apple is quite lovely with lots of cute ghosts on the jar.
I am a bit strange when it comes to smells in that I like most things, I'm not a fan of 'fresh' smells. I dont want my entire house to smell like fresh laundry. But I love anything earthy, patchouli, oakmoss ect.
I also love quite sweet smells, the new banana cake one by Yankee is particularly lovely.

Oh I do fancy a black cherry one. I love Yankee candles, they are so pricey though, there's a shpo in town which sells them and I do go in to lust after them, but have to limit myself to only buying them when my current one has run out. Which it has done now, so I need a new scent..

My favourite fruity fresh one would have to be Bahama Breeze, smells like pineapples and is light without being not there 🙂 x

I like the little samplers, they are great in one of the burners and it gives you the chance to try lots of different scents as I get easily bored with just one candle smell. Sampler tarts are around £1 each (often can be found much cheaper, for example Home Bargains had some in briefly last year at 29p!) and they last for about 8 hours (though I've had more from them than that!) The other marvellous thing about the tarts is when the pooled wax is cool, pop the burner in the freezer for 5 minutes and the wax… Read more »

I love Yankee candles, I just wish they weren't so expensive, can't justify the cost on a student budget! I love vanilla scented ones too, the vanilla lime one sounds lush xx
