Yankee Candle Collection

Oh hiiiiiii!

These upcoming candles are a few of many, the ones I like to keep out because they are either my favourites, or they look nice in certain rooms, the rest are in the attic as I'm hoping to move house soon! Anyway, to make things a bit easier I'll include the description from Yankee Candle for each one, and also my personal opinion! 

1) Lake Sunset 

"The serene beauty of the Suns golden Rays as they dip into still blue waters, calling mind to the musky descent of nightfall" - Yankee Candle.
This was one of the first candles I ever bought, and it's one of my all time favourites. To me it's a very sweet scent, (I'm awful with smells so bear with me), it's very refreshing and almost reminds me of a sweet washing powder, this is the hardest to describe as it's not really a distinct smell, however it's amazing, and the scent throw is amazing too!

2) Mandarin Cranberry

"Bursting with the vibrant, fruity sensation of sweet, sunny oranges, and crisp tangy cranberries" - Yankee Candle.
This candle is so so strong! And I love the combination, personally I don't like pure cranberry scents but the mix with the Orange is so nice! I think the Orange is slightly stronger than the cranberry so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like Orange scents, it's very sweet, and makes your whole house smell amazing! 

3) Vanilla Cupcake

"The rich, creamy aroma of vanilla cupcakes with hints of lemon and lots of buttery icing" - Yankee Candle.
Ok, so, I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this one, it does have an amazing scent throw, and it does smell amazing, however when I lit mine it smelt different to what I expected, I didn't smell any lemon, and it almost had a burnt smell to it, I expected a strong vanilla scent, hence the name, however all I got was a cakey smell. I do like it, but it's definitely not a favourite!

4) Cranberry Pear

"A positively delectable Union of sweet and tart.. Fresh orchard pears drizzled with decadent cranberry syrup" - Yankee Candle.
Oh, my. This is my current favourite. It is AMAZING! firstly, the picture is so nice, they got it spot on, this is what firstly drew me in, secondly, the scent throw is amazing, I could smell this around my whole house, and thirdly, I've never smelt a scent like this before, the pear and cranberry combination was a very clever move, very autumnal, and it reminds me of Halloween! It's very sweet, it reminds me of sweeties in the fall! :) I love the cranberry in this scent, not too strong, and it really compliments the sweet pear. 

5) Summer Scoop

"Delicious memories of creamy, homemade strawberry ice cream on a hot summer day. One scoop or two?" - Yankee Candle.
This literally smells like someone has taken red berries, mushed them together and put them into an ice cream. It's insane! Yet to burn, so will update when I do!

6) Snowflake Cookie

"A new Christmas tradition that is sure to charm, perfectly pretty holiday cookies, deliciously decorated with sugary pink icing" - Yankee Candle.
Again, the picture on the front, how pretty is it?! I cannot stress enough how good this smells, it's a lot sweeter than Vanilla Cupcake, as this focuses more on the sweet icing rather than the cookie/cake itself, which I prefer! Again, yet to burn but will update when I do.

7) Christmas Rose

"Christmas memories bloom in the authentic perfume of delicate rose petals with a hint of pine" - Yankee Candle.
I'm not going to lie, I cannot stand this one. To me it just smells like your everyday rose, I hate the smell of roses, and this is very strong. I'm not a fan of flower scents, but this has to be my worst nightmare, I think I'll be giving this one away, definitely not one for me! (This was a gift)

8) Waikiki Melon

"Aloha! Wake up to the sunny, sweet glow of exotic, juicy melons with a touch of sweet Orange oil" - Yankee Candle.
I didn't actually think I would like this, but surprisingly I do! To eat, I don't actually like melon, which is why I thought I'd hate it, however because I can get a hint of Orange in it, it draws my attention from the melon scent, or to me makes it seem less strong! The melon and Orange together is a yummy combination, and the scent throw is very strong. 

Yankee Candles in general are my favourite brand of candle, I won't purchase any other. They last an awfully long time, and I recommend everyone buys at least one to try out, you will be hooked!

I'd love to know what your favourites are, as if I need anymore haha!
