I'M LOVING... YANKEE CANDLES

Apologizes for my lack of designer inspired post today, I've been outside enjoying the sunshine and the thought of spending hours sat on my laptop doing a post makes me want to cry a little bit. So here i am, with still an eBay themed post but not quite the 'usual' Sunday one'.



Yankee candle samples - £1.31 each

Last month for my birthday i received my first ever Yankee candle (vanilla cupcake) and fell in love with it straight away. It's quite a rich scent, so i don't burn it for long and i really wanted to try some others. Yankee candles are quite expensive, a large jar is usually around £18 so i wanted to get some smaller ones first to see if i liked the scent enough to buy a bigger one. In true me form i headed over to eBay to see if i could find any offers on and this amazing seller came up selling all various sizes and scents. I decided to go for the sampler offer (£1.31 each) and i ended u buying 7 (the ones above) which i think is an amazing deal as i only paid £1.85 postage for them all.

So far I've burnt midnight jasmine, mandarin cranberry and pink sands and I'm already eyeing up a large jar for the cranberry one. I probably wouldn't buy the other two again. I think getting samples is a great way to find out if you like the scent enough to buy it and because they're so small you can burn whichever scent fits your mood that day. Burn time is around 8-10 hours i think, from what I've worked out anyway. I really love these candles and I'm excited to try some others!

Have you tried Yankee candles? Which is your favourite?

  5. I love them too! Unfortunately they are hard to find in my country and they sell them for a way too expensive price!

  7. Love this, Yankee Candles are so nice - but not the price tag! Definitely don't blame you for not wanting to stay inside and scour the Internet! Enjoy the sunshine :) xx

  8. I'm seriously thinking about buying a couple of these for my future apartment. How big are they (I need a size as I'm no candle expert and burning time tells me next to nothing)? xx

  13. I love these! They are amazing! you get to try out so many different scents without paying so much for the full size! I bought loads of these from clintons earlier this year for like 69p or something! Well worth a look if you're near one! x

  18. Midnight Jasmine sounds lush! Their Peppermint Swirl is really nice. Almond Cookie is a really nice scent as well!

    Have you tried candles from Bath&Body Works? Not sure if they're in the UK, but they make high quality candles as well.

  19. I love yankee candles! Got the other females in the family some for christmas/birthday gifts so I get to enjoy them when I visit :P x

  20. @Meg - Burning time is more about the quality of the candle not the size, and 8/10 hours or something that small is pretty good.

    The sample size Yankee's which I buy are usually about 2 inches high? I think
    Am I right, Victoria?

    I LOVE the little sample size candles, they are just so convenient!

  24. I've been wanting to try yankee candles for ages but didn't realise you could get smaller ones and like you didn't want to spend all that money in case I didn't like the smell :) xx

  25. Nice haul you have there!
    I love Soft Blanket and Vanilla Cupcake.

    I've just ordered one of their lip balms off eBay in Vanilla Cupcake. It looks just like their candles but a lip balm. Can't wait for it to come! haha.
    I've just seen it on coleyyyful's blog. :)

  28. I normally only spend a couple pounds on candles, as I like to have lots of little ones around my room, but don't wan't to spend lots on them. I've just bought 3 of these, as for the price, I may as well and I've always wanted to try yankee candles.
