I was brought this last year from a friend who knows that I am mad on Yankee candles. Although my budget normally is a wax tartlet. =Price= After having a look on the internet the general price was around £16.99 =Burn time= The candle says it has a burn time of between 65 and 90 hours, I had about 85 hours from mine so I was very impressed =Scent= The scent was a lovely mix of spice, which was cinnamon, clove, coriander seed, star anise and with a hint of vanilla. I use to burn mine for a couple of hours in an evening, then the scent would stay with me for another few hours. It was weird as it was the first candle that I had, but I found that the wax tartlets seemed to last longer in terms of the scent. To me although this was a summer purchase, I kept the candle for winter evenings. =The Candle= The candle is contained within a glass jar, with a matching lid. The candle has one wick, which is based in the centre of the candle, I was impressed as even with one wick, the candle burned evenly. The advice given by Yankee Candles, is to ensure you trim the wick so that it is not more than 1/4in in height. =Smokey Mark= I did notice that on some occasions there was a smoky ring around the top of the jar, but when the candle was cool I gave it a quick wipe down with a baby wipe. =Safety= The candle should be placed out of the way of children, animals, flammable materials and textiles, to prevent any risk of fire, and also ensure the wick is fully out before going to bed, =Would i recommend= I would highly this fragrance, as its spicy but not too strong, and lovely for the winter evenings. Although whether I would pay that much for a candle is a different matter, gifts yes, my pocket no.
I picked up Yankee Candle Warm Spice candle from a Yankee stockist whist it was on promotion. I wanted a candle during the winter months that smelt warm and autumnal. It was priced at £14.99 on promotion, which is a little steep, but the jars do offer up to 150 hours burn time, so last well. The candle is light brown colour and the image displayed on the jar is of cinnamon and spice. The candle contains natural spice extract. As soon as the lid is lifted on the jar, the warm woody fragrance can be detected. I trimmed the wick as recommended, lit the candle and sat back and relaxed. After a few short minutes, the cinnamon, vanilla and spice could be identified as the fragrance wafted across the room. The smell is fairly delicate, not over powering or artificial. To me it smells like someone has been baking with spice. The fragrance has longevity, I like to burn this for hours at a time, and it is still detectable in the air. Even after extinguishing, the spicy smell is in the air. The one issue I had with this candle is the persistent 'mushrooming' of the wick. I trimmed the wick down before lighting each time, but I found after an hour or two it would start smoking. I then had to blow out the candle, trim, and then relight. This may have been due to me not cutting the wick correctly, but I am not sure? This was the only issue I had. I used this candle all throughout the winter, now I have reached the bottom. I have enjoyed this fragrance during the cold months; the fragrance suited the time of year perfectly and lasted over these months. It subtly added warm and ambiance to my living room. Now we are progressing to spring, I am looking forward to trying some more scents and candles.
Candles make a room seem cosier. Add a fragrance to the candle, and the room becomes cosy and welcoming. Fragranced candles are an essential in my home, and my mother and brother, always buy me a Yankee Candle for Christmas and birthdays, which i consider a special treat. I was lucky enough to receive a Large 623g jar Warm Spice Yankee Candle for Christmas. The candle comes in a thick sturdy jar, with a thick bulbuos lid, and has a grip tight rubber ring inside the lid that firmly holds it in place, when not in use. Warm Spice combines vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar together to give the most wonderful wintery, christmassy smell which fills the room with a homely smell, akin to a nice cinammon and vanilla loaf. I normally light the candle for about an hour, because the fragrance fills the room and lasts a good while after the candle has been put out. I have had my Warm Spice candle since Christmas day, and i have lit it on about 8 different occassions since then, and there is still about 50% of the candle left. They do last a long time and provide hours, and hours of beautiful scent. My family and friends always comment, as soon as they step into my living room, because the strength of the fragrance is evident on entering the room. The glass jars do become very hot though, especially as the candle wears down. Because the jar is large, the candle is constantly burning inside it so please keep them at a height where children cannot reach them whilst they are burning, and later cooling down. You will need long lighter, maybe a gas cooker style lighter for when the contents have gone below half full. Yankee Candles are expensive in my view, but well worth it, because the fragrance is strong and long lasting, and the candle lasts so much longer than most makes, and with the Warm Spice Candle, it is a warming and homely smell that gives off a sense of calmness. This candle can be used all year round. Treat yourself.
Since joining Dooyoo I have to say I have become influenced and introduced to the warm and sensual collection of Yankee candles. Near my new workplace there is a really large Clinton Cards and they have a big collection of yankee candles so it was only a matter of time before I wandered in and made a lovely purchase! I bought the Warm Spice Classic medium jar candle for £16.99 which I now know I probably could have got a better deal on eBay or somewhere but wanting to spend some money I wasn't too fussed to order it online I wanted it now! The candle comes in a glass jar with a pot type lid and the candle has a wick which burns evenly though the centre. It has been advised in other review to trim the wick from time to time so you are not left with a smokey candle and I think this is good advice at making your candle work for your money! The candle has a burn time of 65-90 hours as a general I have been burning this in the evenings after wok for a couple of hours or so for 2-3 days and it hasn't budged so I know I have a long way to go and I will definitely be getting my moneys worth! In terms of aroma this candle has a really warm and vibrant scent with a subtle spicy undertone that flows through. It reminds me of a warm and soothing cinnamon smell which is really homely feeling on an evening in after work cosied up on the sofa. Our flat is rather small and is only a 2 bed but the candle does an amazing job at spreading the smell around our home and it can be appreciated everywhere. Overall, I really like this candle and would totally buy it again. It was a given that yankee candles are of really good quality anyway, but I would buy this scent again - albeit I think it is much more suited for the colder winter evenings as opposed to hot summery days when this scent probably would not be compatible at all.
Damn you dooyoo! Before I started reading and writing reviews on here I had never really paid attention to Yankee Candle and thought they were overpriced candles and generally avoided the displays. However on dooyoo there appears to be quite the following of the yankee candle tarts/candles and I eventually caved in and bought a candle last Christmas and boy was it the start of something. I am reviewing the Warm Spice Classic medium jar candle which was part of the 2012 summer collection and normally retails at £16.99 but I managed to pick it up from a gift shop called 'Spoilt for choice' for £12.49 as it was the candle of the month two months ago. The candle is said to burn for anything between 65-90 hours and I can say after about 60 hours of burning I still have about a 1/3 left so am very pleased with the burn time. I generally tend to burn this candle for about an hour or so at a time and have found that the scent has a fantastic durability and throw so much so that I can still smell the scent the following morning and it spreads throughout the livingroom, kitchen and hall too. The scent of this candle is obviously based on Yogi Yogi Chai tea and has a lovely creamy spicy aroma which isn't so strong that it could cause a headache (e.g. Cinnamon Stick which was too strong for me). The vanilla is quite well balanced with the cinnamon, clove, coriander seed and star anise so it's very smooth and comforting especially if you've just arrived home soaking wet and cold. The candle itself is contained within a glass jar with a matching lid and the candle has one wick which burns evenly though the centre without ending up with large portions of wax being left on the outside (unlike the glade candles). The only piece of advice I would give is to trim the wick every now and again ensuring that it is no longer than 1/4 of an inch so you don't end up with a smokey candle and to wipe the top of the jar with some damp tissue as you do sometimes end up with a black ring across the top of the jar. Obviously it goes without saying that you should ensure that the candle is placed on a heatproof mat out of the way of children, pets, flammable textiles/materials and even though this is obvious candles are still high up there as a major cause of fire in households as well as burns on children and animals.
