The Scented Candle shop

Yankee Candles - Scented Candle Shop*

If there's one thing that this house has plenty of, it's candles. And that's not because we're all about saving our electricity (honestly, Papa G always said the house was like Blackpool with the amount of lights I left on..) but because we like that cosy feeling with dim lighting.. You know what we mean? Especially in the Winter months! Oh and the fact we're too lazy to change a lightbulb. I know, we're ridiculous..!
The Scented Candle shop kindly let us choose some Yankee's to try (add to the collection - guilty over here!) and looking back through my order, anybody would think that we're trying to add a touch of the beach to our house.


I guess you could say that I'm a little particular about our house, and my choices may or may not have been made in relation to the colours for specific rooms. So basically, YES I chose the Beach Walk candle because it would work well in our nautical themed bathroom and oh the Pink Sands looked perfect on the bedside table next to my blush coloured vases - however I can also admit that they both smell utterly amazing. Pink Sands has this incredible sweet scent through it with a touch of vanilla, making the room smell heavenly. Another favourite of mine is the Beach Flowers (I like a sweet smell as well as taste!) with hints of lily and hyacinth coming through, creating the perfect fresh scent. I love coming home from work to the smell of Yankee Candles lit around the house.

  3. I've been seeing a lot of Yankee candles around, and I've been wanting to try them, but I am very picky when it comes to candles. I prefer it not to be too strong, but not too weak, and I somehow always stumble upon the ones that are far too weak.

    Definitely will try these though.

  5. Yankee Candles are so lovely but super pricey; the only ones I've tried were the gel bead variation and, whilst they smelt fantastic, they were a bit... off. I get these knock-off versions now called Village Candles. They smell just as much, but you can still just tell they're not as good as Yankees. Unfortunately my bank balance love the knock-offs. The colourfulness of candles will always attract me to them. I bet you don't want to burn the ones you got.

  12. I absolutely love having candles around the house, I missed out on this last year for living in student halls as we weren't allowed to burn them at all! But I'm really excited to get back into it once I get my new flat next month! One of my favourites from Yankee is Fresh Cut Roses x
