Christmas Yankee Candles

I burn candles nearly every day, especially during the colder months. I usually go for therapeutic scents from Neom or Aromatherapy Associates, but... I have some Yankee Candles and cheaper options in my stash too and burn them when my husband is home. He loves vanilla and cinnamon, so the two new additions to my collection have his approval :)

I was kindly sent these by Scented Candle Shop, who currently have the large Yankee Candle jars on offer. The beautiful large Christmas Cookie* jar costs only £14.99 and Sparkling Cinnamon* is reduced to £17.99. Both candles smell incredible and ... good enough to eat :) 

Christmas Cookie is a rich, buttery, sweet vanilla scent and smells like freshly bakes cookies, while Sparkling Cinnamon smells like sweet and spicy cinnamon sticks. The aroma is very powerful and fills the room really quickly. The jars come with lids to keep the candles fresh and dust free when you are not burning them.

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift, these would be perfect. Scented Candle Shop recently started a youtube channel, where you can find some home fragrance tips.

  8. I saw Yankee Candles in the American store here, but I didn't get any because they were 15€ and I didn't want to spend so much on a candle, not knowing if they were good, but next time I'm there I will definitely get one!! =D
