Yankee Candle Country Lemonade
Advantages: A great value, easy to find scent, perfect for summer
As I have mentioned in my previous reviews, I am a huge Yankee Candle fan. I have tried a wide range of their scents but I always return to the fruit based scents. I am not much of a flower or food girl. I like my candles to be uplifting and fresh smelling, and that is exactly how I would describe the Country Lemonade candle.
I often like to burn candles at the weekend whilst I am relaxing so that I can truly enjoy the full effects of their scent. It really adds something special to a lazy day off work. It always makes everything seem so much more indulgent. I usually but the wax tarts or votive sampler candles to try a new fragrance before I invest in a larger candle. This also allows you to light several different candles and really create your own fragrance.
I love the smell of lemons and citrus fruits in general, and good quality scented candles always make my mouth water. This scent is no exception. The zesty lemon scent is noticeable as soon as you remove the packaging. The Country Lemonade candle is a very pale yellow color, and reminds me of homemade lemonade. The scent is very reminiscent of lemonade and once again is a true to life fragrance that has made Yankee Candles such a well known and respected brand. When I use the wax tarts, the scent travels well and I often get closer to 10 hours fragrance rather than the 8 hours stated. The scent is heavy enough to notice as you move from room to room but is not overpowering or sickly sweet. Unlike the Sparkling Lemon fragrance, this scent is more subtle and understated. Perfect for a lazy day or for entertaining in the spring or summer.
On the Yankee Candle website they state that the wax tarts give around 8 hours of fragrance and that the sampler votive candles give 15 hours of fragrance. For less than £2 each, this offers excellent value whilst allowing you to almost 'try before you buy'. The large jars, which cost around £19.99 offer 100=150 hours of fragrance is burned correctly. Whilst it may seem expensive for something that you are just going to burn, it is well worth the cost to have a little luxury in your life.
The candles can be purchased both in a variety of stores such as Clinton Cards and department stores, as well as online. The online sites offer very competitive prices but I would recommend smelling the candles yourself in the stores to see which ones you like before ordering them online.
Overall, I would say that this is an excellent summer fragrance that adds an extra something special to any day. The scent travels well and lingers even after the candle has been put out. It would be an excellent gift for anyone who loves citrus scents and would be perfect to burn if you have guests coming over.
Summary: A fantastic summer fragrance
