Yankee Candles

I have a huge weakness where scented candles are concerned, it's another reason I love this time of year, we seem to constantly have one burning. Our candle brand of choice is usually Yankee, they just have a scent for what seems like I right in thinking they even have a Bacon one now? So when QVC contacted me and asked if I would like to try out any they have on their website I was a very happy bunny indeed. Knowing there would be a good chance I would love which ever I chose I was quite pleased with what I picked out, but after burning them for around a week now I just had to tell you about them! The three I have are ones I have never seen in stores anywhere near me, and trust me...I'm in those stores a lot! I might also be right in thinking that two of them are US only scents and only available here in the UK on QVC, please let me know if that's wrong. I think its Blueberry and Banana Nut Bread?

The first is Banana Nut Bread, and! Have you ever baked a banana loaf? Well that is exactly how this candles smells when burning, nothing else needs said, except that it may make you want cake.

Second is Blueberry. Before even opening the box I could smell this one, it is sweet and fruity but not as sugary sweet as some more Spring/\Summer scents are, I think due to the hints of vanilla in this one. A nice scent for this time of year I think if you don't yet want to start burning the spice heavy candles.

Last is Red Velvet. If you have ever smelled Yankee's Vanilla Cupcake candle this is similar, so if you like that one I'm sure you will like this. I did wonder if it was going to be a little overpowering when burning but it wasn't at all. The house did smell like cake but not in a sickly way.

I knew the quality of these candles would be excellent as it always is from Yankee, and if you burn them properly you always get the expected burn time, and these three where no different. The scent of all three candles fill most of our house and that was only after burning for a couple of hours.

If you would like to have a look at this set you can find it here.
