Yankee Candle | New Scents For Spring & Mother's Day ♥

 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?

  10. I generally like essential oils more than candles but I can't help but slow down in the candle aisle and smell them. I would like to get a whiff of the shea butter candle!

  11. The shea butter one sounds glorious! Candles always relax me :) The one I got from you was fantastic!

  12. I love these soft sort of scents that DON'T smell like food, or vanilla. Those are the only scents I just can't do. Something that smells natural, or even better - a spa (like the Aloe Water candle) is the exact kind of candle I'd buy. Omg I bet the roses one smells also super good.

  17. With your clear description, I think I'm going to fall in love with the scent of the Aloe Water. I like smelling fresh fragrances that last in the room. These candles in the collection all seem great as gifts!

  20. I've always loved Yankee Candles! I went vegan a few years ago and I mistakenly thought that I would never be able to buy Yankee Candles again, but then I found out that they are not derived from animal products, nor do they test on animals. So, yay for Yankee being vegan! :) I haven't tried any of the new collection, but I bet I'd like the cassis the best.

  22. I love Yankee candles they always have such amazing scents!! I did not know that they had a Shae Butter candle scent. I also did not realize they had a candle that would be perfect for a mothers day gift!!

  23. Yankee Candles are a classic! There is one store near my home and I love going there to smell their different scents. Great to know the Spring ones are coming up! :)

  24. I haven't been to Yankee Candle in a good time, but that has to be my favorite candle store hands down. Just the colors and names of these above make me think of Mother's Day! Now I gotta go get some!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yankee Candles are a crazy obsession of mine, absolutely love buying them. I cannot wait till Mothers Day to purchase quite a few for all my favorite ladies.

  26. I haven't tried the Pure Essence collection yet. I agree that Yankee Candles make great gifts, I got a family member one for Christmas! :)

  27. I am addicted to Yankee Candle!! Looks like I'll be needing to make a trip to the store-- although I have no idea which scent sounds the best! Probably not the rose one as I'm not a fan of flowery scents... but that aloe water sounds intriguing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Not only do Yankee Candles have that classy look with their packaging and solid jars, but I love the scents as well. With the exception of the Mum candle, the rest of the scents are really different. I am really lovin' the color of the 'Aloe Waters' – it's very pretty. Also, I think my Mom would like the Cassis candle; it would probably bring back memories for her. I haven't tried any of these (or heard of them until your post).

  29. My family and I love Yankee candles. They always have such great scents. I'm sure we will be picking up these scents soon. Yankee Candles make wonderful gifts. We have given some out as gifts on occasion. I can't wait to get my hands on these.

  30. I absolutely love Yankee Candle, but can't go into the store because it irritates my allergies too much. I would love to have the Shea Butter candle, that's one of my favorite scents.

  40. I am a huge fan of Yankee Candles! I’d be all over that Shea Butter and Aloe Water. The fresh cut roses is a very pretty jar, but I’m not too big on flower scents.

  41. The colors of these candles are just so beautiful! They really blow me away and just SCREAM spring to me! I love pastels and yummy scents just make me want it even more! I love candles just because they really transform a room, both scent wise and for decor purposes. Thanks for sharing :)
