Let it burn

Don't you just love putting a candle on and relaxing and maybe put on a movie or read a book?
I certainly do, and after hearing tons about Yankee candles I finally decided to buy myself some.

As soon as I opened the box I could smell the candles, I loved the 'Ooooh it's arrived' haha, nice touch. Currently I'm burning Clean Cotton and initally I was so confused, I couldn't smell anything for about 3 hours or so. But now it's burnt in quiet a bit the smell is nice but not as strong as I expected. I don't know if that's because it's a small candle or just me building up expectations. Either way its a lovely subtle scent and it seems to be flickering right now too which I love. Something keeps mutating on the wick though which is rather odd. I also got baby powder, lemon lavender and vanilla lavender. (Yup I love the smell of lavender!) Does anyone else burn Yankee candles? What do you think?
(All pictures taken by me. I love my camera.)


  1. I need Yankee Candles in my life! LOL

  2. I love Yankee Candles! I want to get Clean Cotton next! Right now I'm burning Vanilla Cupcake.. It smells amazing! <3 xx

  3. @ Kaushal, you need to do it lady...join the Yankee club! haha. I'm loving candles right now.

    @Sriya I really want to smell Vanilla Cupcake! Maybe the smell will make me not want to eat them as much lol.


  4. I LOVED the pumpkin pie one for the fall time. Have to get some more scents for now!

  5. You have great photography skills, lady!

    I've not got any of the yankee candles yet but wanted to try Clean Cotton but seeing as it's subtle, think I'll give that a miss. Cheery Blossom is also on my list :) xx

  6. i love yankee candles they are just a bit exspensive for me.
    Not that they arent worth it cause their scents are just emense :)

  7. @Chick Geek, sounds like a yummy candle!! I want more too!

    @ Designer Spray awhhh thank you!! ^_^ I really love taking photographs. Cherry Blossom is on my list too! Yeah I don't know if I'd repurchase this one, it wasn't love at first smell for me.

    @ Charmed Chick -They are quiet pricey but worth it if you want to spoil yourself!
    Plus they are slightly cheaper on Yankee Direct.

    I was originally going to get the smaller 'Votives' which are like tester ones so I could smell all the ones I wanted and they only cost around £1.60. But I read they don't smell as strong, not sure if that's true but I gave them a miss just in case.

  8. I love Yankee Candles too, infact i've just had one burning!!
