==About Yankee Candle==
The Yankee Candle company has been around for a number of years but not until recently has it become so popular with its individual scented candles. The company started off in America,hence the name, then as business become bigger and better there is factories and shops all around the UK and Europe.
Each year Yankee sell more and more with different fragrances being introduced every season (Spring,Summer). They sell candles for all occasions in different shapes and sizes. However, if a candle isn't something you normally buy they also sell car air fresheners, room sprays, Plug-in fragrances, Candle stands, hand sanitizers and many more different products.
I bought the candle in the January sale online. After ordering the product with another candle it came rather quickly in the post with no damage! I have always loved the fresh smell of baby powder so I thought that a candle version of this smell would be perfect for my living room. Having guests over often its always good to have a candle burning for a clean smell in the air.
I couldn't wait to smell the product and when I did it was an absolutely perfect smell and does actually smell of baby powder. I then lit the candle as I couldn't wait for a fresh smell around the room. However, after 10 minutes of the candle burning I couldn't stop coughing and I was getting a sore throat. I was starting to have an allergic reaction to the candle so since this 10 minute burning period I haven't used it since.
The small Yankee Candle is said to last between 25- 40 hours when burning however I couldn't test it with this product as I couldn't last much more than 10 minutes with it burning. It weighs approx 104g. Prices can vary on how much this product costs but on average costs around £7.99.
==Where can I get this product?==
There are many Yankee Candle shops around the country where they sell all their products. The also sell them in:
Privately owned card shops,
You can also buy them on their easy to use website www.yankeecandle.co.uk
==My Overall Opinion==
A brilliant smelling product but for me not one I will be buying again as I can't seem to handle it when burning. They can also be very pricey so might not be an option for some people to buy as they cannot afford them. However, there is a candle for all occasions! 5/10
A little tip- If you are buying online and have never smelt the product you want before just buy a small jar as you could be wasting your hard earned money!
""The Yankee Candle Company""
Firstly I would like to tell you a little about the company who makes these Candles. Yankee Candle is one of the world largest candle company's. It all started with a teenage boy called Mike Kittredge in a town called South Hadley, Massachusetts USA. Mike made is first candle for his mother for Christmas 1969 out of melted crayons. His neighbours saw his candle and brought some so he made more and began producing them in higher amounts. He had help from different sources to find the growth of Yankee Candle. The company slowly expanded and moved to South Deerfield in 1983.
Yankee Candle has grown and now has Many shops and factories throughout Europe, the Uk is a big seller of the Candles.
Yankee Candy doesn't just sell candles, they sell many different fragranced products like Room Sprays, Car Fresheners, Hand sanitizers, Diffusers, Tart Burners, Candle Stands, Plug-ins.

""My Personal Experience with Yankee Candle:""
I have been buying Yankee Candle products for over 3 years now, someone brought me one as a gift and i was amazed at the strong and lasting area of the candle. I then started buying these candles myself using the smaller samplers to check if i liked the smell before purchasing larger jars. I have tried many different fragrances and have many personal likes as well as some i will not use again.
This candle i brought from the shop as i just love the smell of Baby Talc and when i had a smell in the shop just had to buy it. I brought the small jar of this and was priced at £7.99, the price can vary from store to store. They also do the larger size of the jars and the smaller wax tarts and samplers in this aroma. The overall burning time for a small jar is between 25-40 hours.
Small Jar Size and Weight:
60(w) x 87(h) x 60(d)
The aroma is really strong and really hits you even before or light the candle, it really does smell strongly of baby talc and make your house smell lovely and clean and fresh. This would be an ideal gift for someone who has just had a baby as i believe it would help hid the nappy smells. Its a smell that all of us in our family like and even when you blow at the candle it leaves a pleasant and lasting aroma. This aroma also takes me back to when my 2 children were babies and brings back those lovely memories.
""My Overall Rating:""
9/10 - As this candle gifts off a really nice aroma and lasts really long. One of my top ten Yankee candles. I would buy this candle again.
""My Yankee Candle Tips""
Do you wonder what to do with the very bottom of the candles that dont burn all the way to the bottom? I break up the bits and put into a jar and leave them on my shelf in the hall, you can mix all the bits together from different smells. The aroma just from the wax sitting in the jar really hits you when you walk through the door and always makes my hall smell lovely. I always get lots of lovely comments from visitors.
Why not put the bits in to a Yankee Candle tart burning so you really do use up every last bit.
