My candle obsession continues so it was only a matter of time before I got involved with something from Yankee.
Ever since I started burning the Popup Paris WizzNadine candle which is quite a fruity little number, I’ve become a lot more into fruit scents (although I still have lots of love for Jasmine and Vanilla) which is why I opted for Cherries on Snow from the Yankee range.
Cherries on Snow is probably ideal for those who like fruity scents but want them with a bit of a kick. It’s a very seasonal scent that works well for the build-up to Christmas.
It definitely has a strong cherry flavour, but it isn’t all about the fruit and there’s something a little extra behind the cherries that stop it being too “sweet shop”.
The scent release is quite gradual which I’m in mixed minds about as I quite like to enjoy the scent from the moment the candle is lit. However, there’s a lot to be said for an aroma that gradually penetrates the room too.
I’m loving tea lights at the moment as they allow me to spread the light and scent around the room, rather than concentrating it in one place. These tea lights were quite cost-effective too; unfortunately I’ve managed to lose the receipt but I believe they were around £6 for a set of 12.
I bought these from Clinton Cards who appear to have a weekly promotion, where the “scent of the week” is reduced in all the various formats and sizes. I really like this idea because I think it will encourage people to try new scents and maybe even start a collection.
So this has proven a great introduction to the Yankee brand (I think I have another Yankee candle sitting around waiting to be used but I can’t seem to find it) who in my mind are purse-friendly with a great variety of both sizes and scents. They appear to be available everywhere but here’s a link to Yankee Direct who appear to have Cherries on Snow in stock.
