In the winter, I love nothing more than bringing out all my scented candles and firing them up after a long day at college and work, and walking into a cosy, warm home.
A BIT ABOUT YANKEE CANDLES
Yankee candle has been around since 1975 and has continued to amaze their customers for years. Their prices range from £1.00 to a staggering £20 for a candle. Although they can be expensive , the quality and the range of their candles is amazing! They range in size from the size of a tea light, right up to a size of a jam jar. There's something for everyone. You can use them as a decoration or as a regular candle - whatever you choose they look lovely and smell gorgeous.
WHERE I PURCHASED MY CANDLE/SERVICE
I purchased my Yankee candle from amazon. There are many people that sell Yankee Candles on there and the service is very quick. The seller provided lots of info about the candle such as size, smell, weight and how long it lasts.
For this Yankee Candle I paid a total of £6.98 , the candle was £3.99 and the postage price was £2.99. Seems pretty high for such a small candle but it was worth it! I paid a bit too much for it but again...it was worth it! It doesn't come with a holder or base so be careful - do not let it stand freely as it is not safe. I put mine in a little dish which helps a lot because the wax drips down the candle sometimes!
The smell of this candle is Vanilla Cupcake. Not sure where the cupcake smell comes into it - it smells of vanilla and honey in my opinion. It smells lovely , don't get me wrong but I think they should of named it something like Vanilla Honey as opposed to cupcake. It is very sweet smelling so if you aren't too keen of your house smelling like a sweet shop then don't buy this haha. I love the smell, and so does my dad because we both have a sweet tooth and this just fits us perfectly, however my mum doesn't like it because it's too sweet for her....she's more of a lavender person!
HOW LONG IT LASTS
I haven't finished the candle yet. I am about halfway through. The burning lasts for a few hours. You don't need to burn it for long as it took about 20 minutes to make my living room smell sweet. The candle itself would probably last a few months if not years depending on how long you burn it for and how often you use it. I would say if you used it once a week, for an hour it would last about a month or two. It's quite good! The only thing I will say is that I had to light it then blow it out a few times for the smell to get going. I think the bigger candles have a stronger smell than these little one's do. These are designed for decoration I think as opposed to smelling the entire house. I have a bigger one in lavender and it smells lovely - I burn that for an hour and it makes our whole house smell lovely. The wick is quite long so I had to cut it a bit to be able to light it safely.
I would definitely recommend these kind of Yankee candles. They are great for a gift or even as a treat for yourself. They are pricey I have to admit but I love them so much that I can't resist! You can purchase them from Amazon, Ebay and many more online stores. The price varies A LOT so make sure you look around for them first before purchasing. There are so many different smells that you would eventually find one you like - I suggest buying the vanilla cupcake one if you love sweet smelling things. The one I have is excellent quality and smells lovely!
