Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick
Advantages: Enchanting scent, Long lasting, Decorative, Warming
Disadvantages: None for me
I had so far not tried any fragranced Yankee candles before as I had only been introduced to them by recently joining the reviewing community and reading so many wonderful reviews on how fantastic they were, so thank you to those who inspired me to try these candles by writing such good reviews that made me actively want to go out and buy them, as a massive fan of candles and generally all things smelly and lovely I looked forward to sampling these delights for myself.
I was enjoying a very recent shopping trip in my local town armed with a list of products I wanted to try from recommendations I had read on the reviewing community, I ventured into Clintons cards to buy a birthday card and noticed to my surprise they sold the Yankee branded candles, luckily for me they were on a sale stand, never one to refuse a bargain I spent a good 10 minutes choosing which candles I wanted to purchase, then ended up buying one of each fragrance as they all smelt so good.
One which caught me eye and my sense of smell straight away was this one 'Cinnamon Stick' the scent was really strong and instantly drew me to it, I bought a medium 14.5 oz jar half price at £7.99 the usual price being typically around £15.99 I thought that was a good deal, the jar is circular and made of thick glass with a thick circular glass lid that has a rubber seal around it and the Yankee Candle Company logo embossed on the top of the lid.
The colour of the wax is a deep burnt orange colour, the colour of autumn trees and of course cinnamon sticks, there is a label on the front of the jar with a picture of a bunch of cinnamon sticks and a short description stating 'made with pure and natural spice extracts'. I thought the jar looked very attractive and definitely looks a premium quality expensive candle.
The smell blew me away, even before it was tried and tested at home by being lit, I was compelled to keep smelling it all the way home it was so good, slightly sweet, spicy and strong, I loved it, it reminded me of a boiled sweet when as a little girl my grandma used to buy me regularly called Dobson's Voice Tablets, these smelly exactly the same only stronger.
Once home I lit the candle straight away exited to fill my whole house with this glorious scent, I found the candle easy to light, the wick caught alight straight away and the wax started to melt, it did take a while for it to get going and I would say it was around 15-20 minutes before I noticed the Cinnamon Scent float around the house.
A jar of this size has a burn time of around 65-90 hours which is excellent value for money, I initially let mine burn for around 2-3 hours before extinguishing, the scent lasted a good few hours though and I noticed it still lingered the following day too after waking.
Yankee is Americas favourite brand of scented candles and I can see why, it seems this is being mirrored in Britain too and with such an outstanding reputation as well as a huge array of over 100 fragrances to choose from it is easy to see why so many people fall in love with these gorgeous candles as I now have.
The Fragranced candles are available in various sizes and prices...
A large 22 oz jar with a burn time of 110-150 hours is from £18.49
A medium 14.5 oz jar with a burn time of 65-90 hours is from £15.49
A small 3.7 oz jar with a burn time of 25-40 hours is from £7.49
The same fragrances are also available in other various formats such as tumbler sized small, medium and large jars varying in prices from £8.99, a small sampler form is also available which claim to burn for up to 15 hours, these are small and wrapped individually in plastic and cost from £1.65 each, you can also buy the fragrances in Tea light form in packs of 12, each with a burn time of 4-6 hours and are priced from £6.29, a wax tart variety are also available and these are used in burners which are melted to release their fragrance, these have a burn time of up to 8 hours and are thought to be the most potent of the varieties that are sold, these are priced from £1 each.
==MY FINAL THOUGHTS==
I think this fragrance of Cinnamon stick is intended to be a seasonal fragrance which is probably why I got this particular one in the sale as it is very spicy and Christmassy, but I have to admit I would love to use this all year round as its scent is not one I only associate with Christmas, it evokes fond childhood memories of my Grandma and Gramps before they passed.
I can honestly say I love this Yankee candle in particular and I will definitely be re-purchasing when I get the opportunity, I look forward to trying other fragrances from Yankee but based on just this one I think I have found another favourite brand of lovely smelly products.
It surprised me just how strong the fragrance were and how it lingered, the wax in the jar hardly seems to have moved at all, the overall quality of the candle and its packaging is excellent, I have tried to find just one fault or disadvantage for this product and I honestly cannot find any, I cannot stress enough how lovely these are.
Value for money wise I think these products seem initially expensive but when you compare to other household fragrances such as plug-ins and the like, the hours and quality of lingering fragrance as well as the lack of using electricity to operate effectively these Yankee candles far outweigh the other options available on the market and do actually work out cheaper in the long run to use, another up side to using these candles is that they also look decorative and can be placed anywhere to complement your deco and style or be used to create an aromatic atmosphere for those special occasions.
Simply Encahnting and Beauitful.
I highly recommend this Cinnamon stick Yankee Candle.
I have rated a fantastic full house 5 out of 5
