We were recently sent a Yankee candle to review. I have often seen them, and sometimes smelled them, in shops but I haven’t actually bought one before.
Yankee Candle have been established since 1969 (before I was born!) and as the name would suggest, is an American company. Since these early days, Yankee Candle has become the world’s most popular scented candle range.
Yankee Candle have launched a new summer range, Indian Summer, which includes Amber Moon, Ginger Dusk, Honey Glow and the one we were sent, Wild Fig. They are also running an amazing competition, which gives you the chance to win the prize of a bespoke holiday of your choice worth £5,000 plus a set of new candles. The ten runners up will receive £50 each to spend at Yankee Candle online. You can find out more about the competition here. It is very easy to enter.
Our candle arrived quickly and even before I lit it, I loved the smell. Although we are in the middle of a heatwave, I couldn’t wait to try it. We have two small dogs at home and so often use a spritz of air freshener, to ensure there are no doggy odours lurking. I couldn’t wait to light it and experience the full scent. It certainly didn’t disappoint and did a better job than the air freshener, which always smells a little artificial to me. For more details on the other scents available in this range, click here.
Aesthetically they are great, I love that all the wax is contained in the jar, so there is no mess. They also sell pillar candles and beautiful trays to put them on.
For me, this has been a great introduction to Yankee Candle and I could definitely see myself buying more in the future.
The candle we were sent was priced at £19.99. However, you can pick up a cute little car air freshener for £2.25.
Yankee Candle sells a wide variety of fragranced items, so it is well worth having a look on their website to see if anything takes your fancy.
Disclosure: I was sent a Yankee Candle in order to do this review. All words are my own and all opinions are 100% honest.
