Yankee candle votives

Candles are like marmite you either love them or you hate them. I love them. I love the warmth a candle brings to the room the minute you light it.

I am a Yankee Candles hoarder. I have like 5 under my bed and two out ready to light. Over the summer I must admit my candles have not been getting the attention they are used to but as autumn comes lighting my candles will become a regular thing again.

When I was in town today I came across a shop called Wicked Wicks which unfortunately is closing down, fortunately for me they were having a closing down sale! Votive candles were only £1.08 so I snapped up two new scents for my collection.




The first is a scent I have seen quite a few bloggers posting about, Waikiki Melon. The colour is bright yellow and it smells so fresh and fruity. I can't wait to light this one up!

The second scent I picked up is called Summer Scoop. The image on the votive shows some gorgeous berry ice cream being scooped. Yummy! It smells like a creamy sweet berry ice cream! I can't wait to try this out but I am sure it will be very sickly.

Have you tried these two candles? What are your thoughts?!

  6. Wakiki melon seems to be 'on trend' right now, I've seen loads of people burning it in blog posts! I love yankee candles but I usually go for their christmas scents because I've found that they tend to reallly scent a room well. There's a shop in York that sells TONNES of scents and I usually go there and stock up :) xx

  9. I'm a sucker for Yankee candles too, but for some reason I never seem to buy them! I picked up one of the little tartlets the other day though as I have a little thing you burn them on, in the Summer Scoop scent.... it's DELICIOUS. It is slightly sickly, but it's just so sweet and yummy I absolutely love it. I really love the Cherry one too but I can't think what it's called, I know it reminds me of Christmas though.
