What do you think of when you think of Christmas time? Cosy jumpers, lots of good food, family time and a Christmas movie night on the sofa with candles burning softly.
What do you think of when you think of candles? Yankee Candle.
I’m already thinking about my Yankee Candle Christmas scent. A few years ago, Alex picked me up Christmas Eve to burn on Christmas Eve. It doesn’t feel like Christmas without a candle shimmering which simply adds a touch of luxury to the home.
As you can imagine, the thought of being able to test out one of the new Yankee Candle® Elevation Collection was such an honour. With the new versatile design and a gorgeous glass silhouette, I was so excited to find out more.
I was given the opportunity to pick one of the fragrances, let me tell you, that wasn’t easy. But, I was automatically drawn to one, no, not because it’s an aesthetic cream colour, I do love the scent of Vanilla! There are so many available, you really will be spoilt for choice.
Most of my favourite candle scents, I like to switch it up, are ones that have a soft and delicate fragrance. Whilst popping on a movie, yes you caught me, it was “The Grinch”, I can’t embrace the Christmas Candle without getting totally into character, we lit our candle whilst munching our way through some baked goods. Yes, also Christmas treats!
The Sweet Frosting* is the pinnacle of Christmas. A house isn’t a home without a fragrance filling the air and what better way to embrace the magical time of Christmas than a candle that emits the scents of Christmas baked goods. It’s not only warming and soothing, but it perfectly combines that sprinkle of sweet and spice that we all know and love about Christmas.
Imagine the most gorgeous Christmas village taking a batch of freshly baked cinnamon Christmas cookies out of the oven whilst the snow gently falls. That’s what Sweet Frosting is. With initial impressions of cinnamon and mid bases of Vanilla cream, freshly baked cookie and allspice with a base of brown sugar, it really is like Yankee Candle have taken a slice of Christmas and packed it into an aesthetically pleasing vase.
Your own piece of Christmas.
Quality, thick glass is such a showpiece in any room, it sits perfectly in our living room. It really does look impressive. The metal lid has been carefully designed to fit nicely underneath the candle to give a whole new perspective. The label has a beautiful watercolour design that is just too stunning to even contemplate removing.
Maybe it’s because of the stunning cream colour being the reason I’m so drawn to it. But, it really does look beautiful no matter what room you place it in. It becomes a fitting part of the decor. It warms. It adds an essence of cosiness. It fits.
The double wick really turns up the level of fragrance and boosts the ambience of the room. The double wicks were lined perfectly and if you’re one that notices little things like that, you’ll appreciate the attention to detail.
The scent was a good strength, one double wick was enough to fill the entire downstairs, which was really good. Even though we had been burning it in the living room, we were able to go to smell the pleasant aroma of cinnamon and cookies around the hallway and the kitchen too.
I’ll be saving the candle for the run-up to Christmas, so I’ve got to resist the temptation to burn it every night until it ends! I really do love it, so the temptation is there!
I mean, who doesn’t love Yankee Candle? I like that they’re a well-trusted brand who continue to churn out beautiful fragranced candles that not only smell good but it looks a staple piece in the home decor.
My experience with Yankee Candle again was exceptional. From the ease of access, shipping speed and well packaged, it just solidifies why so many of us trust Yankee Candle to make our house a home.
The Sweet Frosting burned well and smelled like the paramount of the excitement leading up to Christmas day. I love it.
Now… it’s time to get more, right? I love it so much that I went out and got a smaller one as a gift for my Mum from Fosse Park. It’s such a sweet smelling aromatic candle that she loves just as much as I do.
