Wish List Wednesday – Yankee Candle and Yankee Candle Simply Home

I haven’t made a wish list Wednesday post for quite a while! So I thought, what the hell. I may as well make one! 😛 I didn’t know what on Earth to do one about mind, and then I realised I hadn’t had a nose on the Yankee Candle website for a while. Until now! I don’t need any new Yankee Candle’s anytime soon, but it doesn’t hurt to look, does it?

Blueberry Scone – £21.99 (link)

The delicious aroma of English scone with sweet blueberries, rich cream and a hint of vanilla.

I’ve been after this candle for years now, and I wish I had bought it last summer when I was eyeing it up in the Yankee Candle store near me. However, I left it and Dane bought me Hazelnut Coffee instead. I’d love to pick this up soon to light whilst I’m having chilled evenings over the weekend.

Vanilla – from £1.80 – £21.99 (link)

A pure vanilla fragrance that is both sweet and subdued, sugared yet creamy

This is a new candle from Yankee and it’s one I REALLY want! Vanilla scents remind me of my mom and when I was little, as that’s what she’s always loved, alongside lavender scents. I haven’t smelt this yet, but I can’t wait to! I don’t know where I’ll find it anytime soon to give it a sniff but I can see me buying it as soon as possible.

Strawberry Lemon Ice – £21.99 (link)

Refresh your home with the cool scent of just-picked strawberries and strips of lemon peel crisped in ice.

This sounds absolutely delicious! I haven’t smelt this one, but it’d be really nice for the summer to burn over the lighter evenings when cooking dinner for me and Dane. Or whilst we chill out and play games. I love Yankee Candle’s Sweet Strawberry candle, as well as their Sicilian Lemon candle, so I can only imagine I’ll love this!

Coconut & Vanilla Bean – £14.99 (link)

Breathe in the sensual scent of creamy coconut and pure vanilla whenever you want to feel warm, wonderful and contented.

I love this collection, and this is my favourite smelling one from the collection. However, I have always stopped myself from buying it due to either having too many candles at the time, or saving money. I’d love to pick this up soon mind… But we shall see! It’s a gorgeous creamy smelling candle, not for people who dislike coconut! The vanilla bean in here does mask that a little though.

Coconut & Lime – £22.75 (link)

What a happy combination! This uplifting marriage of coconut and lime makes every day feel brighter.

I have smelt this one before, but I wasn’t as keen on it as I was with the previous coconut scent. It has a nice tarte scent to it which reminds me of some sort of dessert. This isn’t at the top of my list, but for how big the jar is, and it being a two wick candle I’m pretty sure it would be a nice change from the usual Yankee Candles.

So that’s my Yankee Candle wish list… Now onto the Yankee Candle Simply Home wish list!

Blueberry Cheesecake – £13 (link)

This deliciously fragranced large candle from Yankee Candle Simply Home is inspired by one of our favourite desserts! With the scent of mouth-watering blueberries drizzled over creamy vanilla cheesecake, it’s the best candle to satisfy your sweet-tooth.

I LOVE blueberries! I also love cheesecake, so I knew I would be in love with this candle! I really want to pick it up, especially for £13. I think the next time I’m in Asda I’ll pick one of these bad boys up. 😛

Peach Smoothie – £13 (link)

Summon up the feel of a lazy summer afternoon with this must-have Yankee Candle. The juicy, peachy tones will add a relaxing feel to your home, and in a large glass jar this candle features 110-150 hours’ burn time for a long-lasting appeal.

I’ve bought these before as a little wax tart, and it is a gorgeous scent! It has an amazing throw, and is a light and creamy scent which is perfect for if you don’t want anything too heavy.

Strawberry Shortcake – £13 (link)

A real summertime favourite, this scent will bring farm-fresh strawberries and shortcake into your home any time of year. Featuring a signature glass jar, the large design offers 110-150 hours’ burn time.

Like the Peach Smoothie, I’ve also had this candle as a wax tart and again it has an amazing scent, as well as a lovely throw. This is is really tarte and reminds me of the dessert itself.

Tangerine & Vanilla – £13 (link)

Make your home as fresh as can be with this gorgeous large Yankee Candle Simply Home jar. With ripe tangerine and a hint of sweet vanilla, it’s a strong, delicious fragrance that will embrace you as soon as you walk through the door.

Anything with vanilla in it sounds amazing to me, and tangerines and vanilla just sounds like a yummy summer pudding. This would be especially nice to burn during the day in summer time.

Shea Butter & Vanilla – £13 (link)

Wonderfully soothing this deliciously scented large candle from Yankee Candle Simply Home is fragranced with musky blend of shea butter and sweet vanilla. Perfect for when it’s time sit back and relax. Go on – you deserve it!

This sounds really lovely! The sort of scent I would burn during the day and into the evening on rainy days.

I’ll be picking up the wax tarts of all of the above that I haven’t tried yet, just so I can give them a go before plunging into the £13 large jar.

So that’s all from me and my wish list! What candles do you have your eye on at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and hope you’re having a great week.

  1. Great wishlist, I love yankee candles 🙂 That coconut & vanilla bean candle sounds lovely! Vanilla is one of my favourite scents and I’ve not smelt it with a coconut combination before so I’m definitely gonna have to get one. I’ve got the tangerine & vanilla candle (I bought a couple because I loved it) and it smells amazing! I’m a big fan of citrus fragrances and it’s such a strong candle. I recommend it 🙂 I’ve also got the strawberry shortcake and it’s a lovely candle, very sweet smelling. Another one I’m looking forward to trying now is the shea butter & vanilla x

    • I love Yankee Candles too! 😀 Have you smelt the Vanilla Yankee yet? It’s beautiful! I have bought it as a wax tart but I haven’t been able to burn it yet. 😦 I think when I finally move out I’ll stock up on more candles so I have plenty to burn. 😛

      I’m currently burning Christmas Eve in my room, I love it so damn much. ^_^
