yankee candles


One very very cold winter afternoon, I found myself taking shelter in a store where I never cared to drop by because like most of you, my first reaction to a Yankee Candle store is “What’s in there? oh, that? scented candles? hmmm…expensive…nevermind…”

Since I found myself cold and shivering inside the Yankee Candle store and I wanted to kill time, I thought “why not look around?” From then on, the rest was history.

The prices for big jars can be a put-off, yes that can be expensive, but thank god for samplers. Here’s part 1:



yankee candle christmas at the beach1. Christmas At The Beach – This one of my most favorite scent, I guess because the scent is really strong. It’s like a delicious sugary sweet pineapple that fills the room and lasts really long. I believe this was a Christmas edition. So it may be hard to find nowadays.


yankee candle kitchen spice review2. Kitchen Spice – This is the one I really keep in my kitchen. It has a warm cinnamon pumpkin spice scent that’s ideal for winter. Love this for cozy cold mornings.


yankee candle juicy peach3. Juicy Peach – This one is a very very sweet almost orange-like but actually peach scent. Very fruity and smells delicious and fresh.


yankee candle fruit fusion4. Fruit Fusion – I also love this scent, so much so that as you can see in the picture, the votive sampler has been very used, abused and overused, lol. I like that it has an orange-berry mixed scent, thus the name “Fruit Fusion”.


yankee candle beach walk5. Beach Walk – This is a lovely mild scent of sea musk, hint of orange, and the sea? yes, you read that right! It’s fresh and light, light a walk on the beach. Love it.


yankee candle midsummers night6. Midsummer’s Night – Smells like men’s perfume. A heavy musk made for the vavavooooms out there, yeah….guys! if you like scented candles, grab this. Gals, this would be a great gift for your bae. 🙂 Not bad for women too, but try the sampler first.


yankee candle mountain lodge7. Mountain Lodge – Sage, sage, and more sage! with cedarwood, If you have Yankee Candles’ Treehouse Memories, this one is not that different. This has a warm, cozy yet light scent to it. Very relaxing and very comforting. It doesn’t permeate well around the house, but it has an easy feel scent to it. Love.
