I thought a lot of how I will begin this post and what I will say to all of you. The only thing that came through my mind was : ” Hi everyone ! My name is Laura and I am a Yankee Candle addict.” It took me quite a while to process this, but after I took a closer look at my Yankee Candle collection I knew it quite clear. I like all candles, they relax me and they create a cosy atmosphere in the house, especially at night. I prefer Yankee Candles because of their awesome fragrance line, so you can imagine how happy I was when I found all the fragrances that I was looking for on Scented Candle Shop.
Now, I must say it has been a very hard choice that I had to make. With so many brands to choose from and so many fragrances I was a little bit confused, but I ended up picking the right items for me and my personality. Here is what I picked :
Yankee Candle Honey Blossom – This candle is available in 3 sizes : small, medium and large. I went for the smaller version because I did not know exactly if I would like the smell so much. This pretty purple candle captures the beautiful blend of flower nectar, honey, musk, freesia and woods and had the burning time between 30-45 hours.
St Eval Spring Flower Scented Candle Tin – I admit I am a sucker when it comes to spring flowers scent. Then again, spring is my favorite season for a reason. I like the scent of this candle, although I would have expected it to be more fresh and not so much on the sweet side. I find the packaging very interesting also. The burning time for this one is around 30-45 hours.
I also picked 3 votive candles from Yankee Candle : Camomile Tea, Drift Away and French Lavender. I like votive candles very much, but you have to be carefull and have votive holders also because the situation might get pretty messy. Camomile tea has a chamomile and honey smell, very relaxing. French Lavander brings the fields of lavander from France directly in your own home and Drift Away has a fresh smell that really got to me, becoming my favorite one.
Colony Scented Wax Tarts – I think everybody knows by now the tarts from Yankee Candle. They are the best that is out there but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to try something else too. These Colony wax tarts are a bit smaller than the Yankee Candle and they don’t have such a powerful smell but I find them really nice. A single tart can burn up to 15 hours.
Yankee Candle Tarts – I think these tarts don’t need any intro. I just love them and in time I made some favorites also. The fragrances that I like most are : Fluffy Towels and Liliac Blossoms. These 2 are the ones that I am rebuying all the time. In rest, I like to try out other fragrances too and till now I think I tried most of them.
Twisted Gold Candle Holder – I think it’s obvious that I have a passion for candle holders too. I can’t tell you ho many I have because you would think I’m a little bit insane. What I can tell you is that I fell in love with this candle holder the second I saw it and I knew it had to be mine. To me it looks like it came out of an enchanted story book and at night it becomes even more special.
If I would have to find one word to describe the pictures above I would choose magical,simply because I really think that the atmosphere that this candles make is pure magic. They can warm up a cold night, take the stress away and give instead calm and a cozy atmosphere.
Tell me, what is your favorite way of relaxing and what are your favorite Yankee Candles scents ?
