It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

* Yankee Candles -

This has been my first delve into the world of Yankee candles! I always see so many lovely looking ones on Instagram, blogs and Youtube accounts, but for some reason I have never bought one for myself... although I have been to known to send them as gifts (they make good Christmas pressies).

So when The scented Candle Shop got in touch to see if I would like to try out some of their Yankee Candles I was very excited! I chose two very festive scents because I just love all things Christmas related, so Warm Spice and Spiced orange made their way to my doorstep a few days later.

They smell so lovely when you first open the lid, they are very sweet and definitely make me think of Christmas. With a lot of candles I have found that they smell very nice before you burn them but once you light them you can't smell it, but with these candles they make the whole room smell lovely! That's the most important part to me, whether you can smell them when they are burining (although I don't mind a pretty jar).

I would definitely recommend these gorgeous candles, and they are currently on 'Save 10%' so they would be perfect for Christmas presents for family and friends. I would love to know your Yankee candle recommendations!


  1. I've always wanted to buy candles too, but every time I see them in the stores they always cost around $23 and I don't really feel like spending that much money haha. I should splurge on one, one of these days.

  2. I really want to get one of these for christmas, the scents you got look really lovely! x
