For me, the smell of vanilla takes me straight back to my grandparents’ kitchen and the ice cream that my Grandad used to make; I love both the taste and smell and, whilst I obviously can’t taste this candle, the smell is amazingly good. Cakes, confectionery and Grandad’s ice cream; it is a real memory fest.
Yankee Candles provide good value in their mid market position, with attractive lidded jars and pleasant fragrances, although I would urge doing some in-store sniffing before purchase where possible to check the smell is to your taste.
For best burning experience, keep the wick trimmed to no more than 3mm and use a candle snuffed to extinguish as that helps prevent the wax going everywhere.
This is an attractively scented candle, sized for bath tub corners and secret Santa/stockings as well as the bedroom, lounge or dinner table. The lid helps keep the dust off between burnings although this one smells so nice it is unlikely to get a chance to accumulate dust in this house.
