I think I have developed a slight obsession over Yankee Candles in the past few months. I have always liked candles, I like to have one burning in my room when i'm working or just relaxing, they just give a really nice atmosphere. I do like non-scented candles as well but I think I would always choose scented over non-scented. Last Christmas I was given a few small Yankee Candles, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Tree, which both smell absolutely divine and I wish it was acceptable to burn them all year round! Anyway due to the fact that most of other candles are Christmas scents I decided to get some new ones.
I bought Midnight Jasmine in a regular tumbler for £7.99 in the Debenhams sale a couple of weeks ago. I love it, it gives off a really strong jasmine scent which I love, its really relaxing but not overpowering, as sometimes I find the more flowery scents to be a bit heady. But this is quite light. The second recent addition is Cinnamon Stick in a small jar which was a birthday present from my sister, this smells amazing, I cannot tell you how much I love this candle! I love cinnamon in anything, on greek yoghurt, in my hot chocolate, so this candle is perfect. Now I know that it could be classed as a Christmas scent or just a general winter one but I don't care I just couldn't wait that long to burn it! Plus with the English summer weather leaving much to be desired I can pretend its winter anyway!
I believe the small jars are usually around the £8 mark but I try to buy Yankee Candles when they are on offer because they are expensive unless you just want testers or sample sizes. I do think that they are worth the money though, one of my pet peeves is buying a scented candle that doesn't actual disperse the fragrance in a room! Yankee Candles definitely do leave a room smelling amazing! Does anyone else love scented candles as much as I do or have any suggestions of ones I should try?
