Disadvantages: None from me on this one
You may have read my review yesterday when I discussed my love of Yankee Candles and that I had been burning my Peach scented one. I guess we are all a little fussy when it comes to what they want in the scent of their candles and for the peach wasn't quite strong enough but yet I can't stand an overpowering candle either. After using up the Peach tea lights I have now moved onto a larger Yankee candle and that is the County Linen scent and here are my thoughts on it.
I picked up this larger candle when I was out buying some others, there is often an amount of discounted stock in the shop that I use and this was one of them. I believe the candle has now been discontinued by the Yankee range but that doesn't mean you can't find it like I did, just try various websites as well as independent stores. The large jar that I brought will normally cost around the £20.00 mark but I got this for just £12.00, result!
The thing that I always find about the larger Yankee products is that they never look out of place, what I mean is that the glass jar filled with the coloured wax and the attractive label on the front make this look a welcome addition to any room. The image that is one the Country Linen one is of some vibrant looking cushions, very relaxing! The glass jar shows the just off white wax through it and as soon as I removed the lid the fragrance started coming through. We are told by Yankee that the scent is a mixture of freshly washed sheets and drying on the line, spring flowers and cut grass. If there was ever going to be a Yankee that suited me then this was going to be it!
The candle was placed in my dining room which opens onto my conservatory and within about 20 minutes the scent could really be noticed. It was really soft and refreshing and I was certainly a fan. I if closed my eyes it really did have the scent of the garden in there, not as much anything striking like that of the freshly cut grass but a mixture of wild flowers and just a green lawn on a lovely summers day.
After leaving the candle burning for slightly longer I began to sense it all around the house. It was the crisp scents of the washing on the line, a sort of linen scent that filled the house, just really soft and gentle and almost welcoming. The scent certainly worked well as we put this on after cooking tea and after a while you couldn't smell cooking scents as this had overcome them, not as mentioned, in too heavy a way but just enough to gentle fill the room with some delicate linen scents.
In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending this fragrance; it is soft and light and fills the home without being too much.
5 out of 5 from me
Thank you for reading
Summary: An excellent scent by Yankee
