New Additions To My Yankee Candle Collection ♥

 I think it's safe to admit that I have a slight substantial obsession with Yankee Candle. I absolute love their candles and their range of scents, I even love the names of the candles themselves - I'm candle crazy at this stage and at least one graces every room of the house. I've recently added five new large jars to my collection and four of them are just in time for the festive season too.

Lucky Shamrock - "A touch of the Emerald Isle . . . the fresh scent of lush, green hills kissed by a sparkle of sunshine". Of course I had to get this candle being Irish and all. The smell of this reminds me of picking clovers out of the grass as a child, it's such a fresh scent and this will be lovely to burn in March just in time for Saint Patrick's Day. I love the iridescent label too. You can buy it here.

North Pole - "What holiday dreams are made of . . . a sweet blend of icy cool mint and sugary rich vanilla cream". I of course had to get this for Christmas time, if not for the name alone. It smells of minty candy canes and it really is lovely for a winter scent. You can buy it here.

Santa's Candy Castle - "A palace made of fruity gumdrops where dreams come true for kids of all ages".This is a really Christmassy scent but I really don't get the 'fruit gumdrops' fragrance in this at all. It is, however, really nice for Christmas time and the scent fills up the whole house - something which I love. You can buy it here.

Magical Frosted Forest - "An enchanted place where icy breezes playfully dance through tall, snow-coated pines". This is another really fresh scent which is quite similar to the Christmas Wreath Yankee Candle I picked up last year. This one really does smell like a walk through a cold forest. I really love the label on this one too with the Christmas Trees. You can buy it here.

Sugary Sweet Snowfall - "A winter wonder as fluffy marshmallows fall from a creamy vanilla sky". This scent is gorgeous, it really does have the hint of marshmallows and vanilla and I think it's another perfect winter scent. You can buy it here.

For getting all of these I also received a Mandarin Cranberry and Cinnamon Stick votive candle, both which are great scents for the winter season. I am so in love with all of my candles, the scents are divine, the candles seem to be filled with oil so the scents are really strong and I love that I have some new festive candles to burn this Christmas.

Do you have any of these Yankee Candle scents?

  29. I didn't try out Yankee Candles until a few years ago. Now, I know what all of the hype is about. They seriously put out the best smelling candles! Unfortunately, I don't burn candles too often since I have a hypersensitive sense of smell that triggers headaches and nausea or sets off my allergies.

  30. I love, love, love Yankee Candles. My kids/husband are allergic to a real tree so I use my Yankee to make it feel more like home with the cedar smell. Love them

  33. My favorite Yankee candle scent is home sweet home. I love a cinnamon scent in my home. So much that the last time I went to the Yankee candle out let I bought 10 of them. Sadly I only have 2 left. I. Must. Get. More.

  34. This is the first time I've heard of Yankee Candles and looking at the photos you shared, they won't just help create this Christmas-y ambiance but they'd also give this relaxing mood at home. And, these are the reasons why I love candles!

  35. Love Yankee Candles. In fact, I need to get some after seeing this post as holidays are a perfect time to get them!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You will flip! I actually live about 15 minutes from the Yankee Candle factory and flagship store! Seriously, when you drive up the highway you can often tell what flavors they're mixing. And their store is so much more than candles! They've got a room where it snows ever 3 minutes, Santa's Village, and some of the coolest kitchen gadgets I've ever seen!

  37. I am a candle fanatic...love them, always want more of them and I love your new additions
