Yankee Candles - Second batch of love


So as you may know im addicted to Yankee candles now, I love my house smelling of exotic scents or yummy cake smells. I have recently put in another order and saw they were having a sale on some of the jars and candles i love. 

Now i like to get a candle either a jar or a tumbler which will do me the month and i then will recycle the jars for my makeup or in the bathroom to hold cotton buds and samples etc They are glass so protects from steam in the bathroom. The jars are like the old sweetie jars. So cute and i love filling my home with them. If your interested in recycling old candle jars then youtube have some extensive reviews and tutorials on how to do this plus id advise only adults do this as it involves hot water and the glass can get extremely hot too.
So this month i was so excited to see the new ranges out for easter, so you can get a Bunny cake candle or pick from the Eat cake first range.

Now i have no shame in saying i love my cake days as being diabetic i cannot eat cake all the time (type 2) so when i have a treat being a carrot cake or some form of lower sugar version i really savour the flavour. Now ive found having the Yankee candles has taken this need away. As i have the smell of the cake and brown sugars in my senses its eliminated the need for me to actually eat them. Plus its not like i can chew on a candle now.... i mean as much as they are yummy smelling, thats going a bit far. 

So i picked - Bahama Breeze 

I love having yankee candles in my home now and they make the ambience so much more peaceful and the smell they create is amazing. I prefer the fruity smells as they are so fresh and make me feel relaxed, like I'm sipping on cocktails. Plus you cant beat candle light, i think i prefer it to the lights we have in our room as its less harsh on my eyes and whatever I'm doing they seem to have calmed me I've noticed. I do my tasks in the evening and I'm not so panicked.

And my new baby - Banana cream cake 

So now i will as i said pick one candle unless i can stretch to treat for a limited edition, then i will bulk up with the little samples as i have the glass tumblers. These little samples are lovely if you want to try something and are not sure if you will like it. Or if you want to have loads of scents to mix and match then the samples or wax tarts are perfect.


Now i really love the fruit and food scents so i was umming on the red velvet cake and thinking it maybe really similar to the strawberry buttercream candle i get from the range so i thought humm try this, I also got the strawberry, christmas cupcake, vanilla cupcake and my personal favourite Wild passionfruit.

If your not too sure then i would recommend getting some samples for £1.80 you cant go wrong and they last 15-20 hours which i found amazing value.I bought my samples so i could widen the range of candle i purchase as when deals come out for 50% off or any discount i know which ones to stock up on for the year. I just bought 2 red velvet on offer as they are lovely scents. Its like taking a warm cake out of the oven and smelling the sugars and essences fused together in cakey goodness. (Only time il use the word cakey in a good sense)

So have you tried Yankee candle ? What scents do you love ?
