Yankee Candle Vanilla Lime
Advantages: burn for a good time, smell lovely
After having been so pleased with my Yankee Candle car jar, I can safely say I am a huge fan now of the Yankee Candle range. When shopping in the Christmas sales, I came along Clintons doing a sale and before this I had been pondering buying some of their tea lights but they are not cheap at all. However, Clintons were selling these tea lights on sale and had quite a number of flavours and after a lot of sniffing and pondering, I decided that I loved the Vanilla Lime scent the most and purchased my box of tea lights.
These tea lights come in a green box with a window cut out so that you can see the candles inside. It has a photo of an iced drink I'm assuming vanilla lime and it has the Yankee Candle logo. It tells you that you get 12 tea lights in the box which I think is good value for money and each candle weighs 9.8g each and these have a burning time of 4-6 hours which is very good so in reality you are getting 72 hours of burning time if all burn to 6. The candles come in small plastic cases and are green wax.
To start with, these candles are very nice and light to hold and the wick seems to be just long enough on these tea lights that you know they will light well, not one had a missing wick. The smell coming out of the box is amazing, it is a lightly fruity but sweet vanilla scent and it is very warm and homely and very soothing. I knew I wanted this scent right away as it is unique but makes you want to keep sniffing as it is that pleasant and I couldn't imagine a smell I'd want more in my room than this.
I think with it being green and me being quite girly, I wasn't expecting this to smell so nice but having the word vanilla in it probably enticed me to pick this candle. Lighting the candle is very easy to do with a lighter or a match and I have never had any difficulty lighting these as they light very quickly and again I've never had any problems with these candles going out when lit as they seem to be made well and are very good quality so you know they will keep lit for a while.
These candles do really keep lit for 4-6 hours, I thought I got my moneys worth but my room didn't smell too strongly of the vanilla lime scent which surprised me as I'd hoped it would be stronger. However, I did originally keep burning these in my living room but when I burnt them in my bedroom and kept the door closed the smell stayed in and it was much more apparent which I liked. The smell doesn't really tend to linger with these candles but that wasn't a problem as long as the smell was there when burning.
I do recommend these candles to anyone who loves to burn a candle and who loves a nice sweet smell. They burn for a good amount of time, they smell unique and you get a good number of tea lights in a box. These are nice to give to someone as a gift or to just have in the house if you want a lovely warm scent when you walk into a room to relax you. I couldn't fault these tea lights at all and when my box runs out, I will be buying more right away.
I got my box of 12 candles for £3.22 in the Clinton's sale but I doubt now that there will be any left. Amazon sellers have these for £5.99 or you can try eBay. The official UK Yankee Candle website is charging £6.45.
