I have made no secret of my love for Yankee Candle and their gorgeous scents, sharing my collection and hauls with you all on the blog before and whilst I've tried to curb my obsession and stop buying new candles and wax tart melts until I use up what I currently have, it's hard to resist adding to my collection when they bring out gorgeous smelling new collections. One so collection is their new Pure Essence collection, which embraces the essence of spring and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
I have been dreaming of spring ever since the 1st of February, following the Irish tradition that spring begins on February 1st and I've been wanting to put away the cinnamon scents of winter and make way for new, fresh, spring embodied scents in my home. I have three small jar candles, each with a different scent from the Pure Essence collection.
Aloe Water - "Clean, refreshing water blends with thick, soothing aloe to create a wonderfully relaxing experience". This mint green coloured candle is the perfect shade for spring, it smells so fresh and clean and has the perfect hint of Aloe to create a gorgeous hint of fragrance in your home.
Cassis - "A luxurious indulgence...the lusciously rich, fruit aroma of black currant berries with a fresh burst of tartness". This deep purple shaded candle is probably my favourite fragrance from the three I have from the Pure Essence collection. I love fruity scents so this was a real winner with me and it's the perfect blend for spring.
Shea Butter - "Pure contentment...indulge yourself in this creamy smooth scent with hints of beautiful fruit blossom". This white candle really does give the aroma of creamy shea butter. It's such a lovely scent with a hint of fruit blossom mixed with the richness of the shea butter. I have this candle in my bathroom for burning during a long soak in the bath.
I'm really impressed with the new Pure Essence collection that Yankee Candle have come out with. I think the scents really do embody the feeling of spring as they're fresh, clean smelling and perfect for airing out the scents of winter.
Mother's Day is happening on March 15th this year and although I would rather my other half and son didn't get me anything (as I said before in my post about what Mother's Day means to me), I do get my own mother a gift just to show her that I care. Luckily my mother is very easy to buy for her as her and I generally love the same things. She also loves Yankee Candle and always has a jar and various wax tart melts burning throughout her house. This of course means that she burns through them quite quickly and is always in need of a candle. I've picked her up the Fresh Cut Roses small pilar candle for Mother's Day. The scent is one of my favourites from the whole Yankee Candle range and I think she'll love it's floral and unbelievably fragrant heirloom roses scent too. I think getting a candle that smells of roses is far better than actual roses as the candle will last much longer than a bouquet! I love that the candle also has a little gift tag picture with 'Mum' on it too, it just makes it an all the more perfect gift for Mother's Day, don't you think?
Have you tried any of the candles from the new Yankee Candle Pure Essence collection? Do you, like me, think that Yankee Candles make great gifts?
