My TOP 3 summer Yankee Candles!

 Yankee Candles are my absolute favourites. I think my last post on the Yankee's I own, I had around 12, I now have 23 medium or large jars. Who needs that many candles? Not me, but apparently I like to buy them!

Summer scents especially (not forgetting the winter baking scents) are some of my absolute favourites. Foodie scents are my favourite, be it fruit, or baking, I just love sweet smells. I popped into Yankee Candle in Bristol- Cabot Circus, recently and was overwhelmed by all of the summer scents, there are so many, most of which I already own actually, oopsie! I picked up 3 new scents that I wanted to share with you, because they smell bloody INCREDIBLE. 


Oh jeeeeesus if the picture alone doesn't completely sell this candle to you the smell most definitely will. 

Official Description; Refresh your home with the cool scent of just picked strawberries and strips of lemon peel crisped in ice.

This basically smells like my childhood, the ice lolly I used to buy from the ice cream van. 


Quite possibly my favourite this season!

Official Description; Refreshing orange takes a sweet turn in this honey-dipped citrus delight.

This one smells like orange sweets! The picture is amazing and reminds me of being in the heat of summer.


Ive had this one for a long while now, It's one of my all time favourites that I don't think I'll ever stop buying! 

Official Description; A positively delectable union of sweet and tart … fresh orchard pears drizzled with decadent cranberry syrup.

This smells like nothing I've ever smelt before? Is that weird? I don't like pears at all but I don't smell pears with this one, the cranberry is much stronger which is lucky for me as it smells uhhhhhmazing. 

All candles pictures above offer from 25-40 hours of burn time, depending on how you look after them. I would recommend buying wick trimmers, as this helps make your candle last a lot longer, I learnt this a few months ago and wouldn't ever not use them now.

What are you favourite ever candles? I have to say I do love snowflake cookie too!

Lotsa Love,
