Yankee Candle Haul

Yankee Candle Haul
 Christmas is just around the corner and me being a candle lover already this is the perfect time to stock up on some winter Yankee candles.
I am a student and of course times are hard with money so I stuck with purchasing a lot of samples and one big Yankee candle for the meantime! 

Yankee candles are amazing for looking for that perfect scent, they have a wide range of scents from sweet, fresh, fruity the lot!

If I like the scent of one of the samples then I may repurchase the bigger version, but honestly these will last me till Christmas right!?

Sun & Sand
I got this a good few months back but kept it until now to burn, anyway's it smells really nice and fresh it probably was a typical Summery scent but never mind! still can't wait to try it.

Pink Dragon Fruit
Again I got this awhile back and only took it out my cupboard now it smells amazing!
It is probably one of the nicest scents I have smelt from Yankee candles range. It is extremely fruity but fresh at the same time, I can imagine this being the perfect candle for your living room as it smells quite strong so it would overpower a room. The colour is pretty too I do love vibrant pinks!

Christmas Eve
Just the name of this gets me very excited for Christmas! this one is difficult to describe the scent, as all I can smell at the moment is cinnamon! it over powers them all - but from what I can smell its scent is a mixture of all Christmas scents in one candle that is the only way I can describe it.

Christmas Tree
Well like the name says it smells like Christmas trees! however as lovely as it smells I find it smelling a bit too much of perfume (unless my scent is bad!) this is just what I can smell. It does smell very much like Christmas and I can see me really liking this candle!

Winter Wonderland
The name of this has got me singing 'Walking in a winter wonderland' in my head, again the name is really Christmas themed and exciting! The smell of this is really nice it doesn't smell like 'winter wonderland' not that I can put my mind to what that smells of..but to me it smells fresh and something you would come across smelling around the Christmas period.

Sparkling Cinnamon
Cinnamon is one of my all time favorite scents and I enjoy it on the occasional foods! it just smells really nice and yummy. This candle is one of the strongest scents I have ever smelled from their range, it seriously over powers the rest of the candles. To me it smells like those fire ball sweets you used to be able to buy from the shop! it does smell very much like Christmas as cinnamon can be known for being Christmas scent.

Fireside Treats
This candle smells so yummy, exactly what the image is - it smells like marshmallows. I can see me really liking this scent as I do enjoy sweet scented candles that make you want to eat them!

Christmas Cookie
I get this candle every year and somehow it is always in my Christmas box off someone. I luckily got a jar last year of this and it lasted me a good while so I had to purchase the glass version this year. This candle just literally smells like biscuits to me, it is very much a sweet, yummy scent. It isn't to everyone's scents as my mam dislikes it but if you are one for yummy food scents then this is perfect!
Christmas and a sweet biscuit scent in one what more could you want from a Christmas candle!?

That is all my Yankee candles I have!
Some may say this is a lot but I love candles especially in winter!
I apologize if my description of each scent wasn't brilliant but it is hard to get their scents when the Cinnamon overpowers them all!

What is your favorite Christmas Yankee candle?

  2. I do love a yankee candle! At the moment I'm burning fireside treats and vanilla frosting. I like the food&spice scents or fresh scents like clean cotton. I have to say I hate Christmas tree, totes reminded me of toilet cleaner!! Bit too alpiney! :)

    Love Kate xx

  3. I'd love to smell the christmas cookie one as i'm a lover of sweet scents and avoid spicy/musky smells haha, but during this time of the year my scent mysteriously fails on me a lot, which sucks because I'm a massive lover of candles and like you have a bunch to burn :(
    great haul!
