Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie | Review

Lets just look past the fact we're in August and no way near close to Christmas, although we're still technically in summer, I cannot wait for winter to come around, I just love it.
Today I'm going to express my love for the candle that is Christmas Cookie, a candle which personally.. I don't think smells Christmassy at all, or maybe here's me just trying to justify why I'm burning it in August..
Yankee Candles official description -
"Buttery rich, vanilla scented, holiday sugar cookies"
That's exactly what it is, to me, It smells very strongly of vanilla, and freshly baked sugar filled cookies. It genuinely smells just like my kitchen when I'm baking cookies, it's definitely true to its description! 
I'm awful at describing scents, sorry!

The candle itself has a really strong scent when burning, it literally makes my whole house smell of cookies and sugar, so the scent throw is also brilliant - I've had a few candles from Yankee which have a terrible scent throw, usually the ones that are less fragranced, however Christmas Cookie smells incredibly strong!
I'll be honest, the picture on the front of the jar was what caught my attention to begin with, how beautiful is it?! I want to eat each and every one of those cookies haha.. I find the picture really helps with the scent when you're smelling them in the shop, as by looking at the picture you have a rough idea of the smell before you open it, you have a certain expectation, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.
For anyone that's a dedicated reader of my blog, you would know that I have far too many candles - Christmas Cookie being one of my absolute favourites, I've repurchased this at least 4 times, I just adore it.
I mainly buy my candles from a Yankee Candle store, that way I know for sure if I like what I'm buying, however the ones I repurchase I buy off of the companies website, you can find this particular candle here. The price for this sized jar in particular is £21.99, get it whilst you can, it's very popular! Also the website currently has £1 delivery on orders over £25, this is very rare so make the most of that!
Do you have any Yankee Candles? If so, which ones are your favourites?!
