Candle Season Is Here!

It's a deja vu to last year! I had a pretty similar post to this exactly a year ago, but I suppose the lower temperatures and shorter days just get us craving some candles around the house, don't they? Do you feel like this as well? Sometimes I find the right scent can warm up the whole room that little bit more! These two Yankee Candles were two of my birthday presents. They weren't on my wishlist, but when my husband noticed we ran out of our Honey & Spice, HE suggested we get some more! They think they can hide it, but we all know blokes secretly enjoy the scented candles just like we do! haha What I like the most about the Christmas Cookie scent is that it smells just like that! That lovely, buttery smell fills up the whole room and I have to think carefully about when I want to light it cause it always ends up making me hungry! The same goes for the ever so popular Salted Caramel scent. The one thing I hated about it was not knowing what actual food it smelled like so I could satisfy my craving after smelling it all day! I finally figured it out though: caramel popcorn will do the trick. You're welcome! Lastly we have the more sophisticated looking (and smelling) Rituals Under a Fig Tree. I took advantage of my £5 off birthday voucher from FeelUnique.com to get this and it was well used. This is the warmest scent of them all and it's got a Diptyque's Figuier vibe to it for a much friendlier price tag! It doesn't burn very evenly though, so if you're fussy about your candle quality, this might not be ideal!

Are you into burning candles? What are your favourite ones? 


  1. Hi Ferdie! There is no better time of the year than candle time!!! I always have a candle all year round but this time of year I definitely veer towards the vanilla/fig/caramel/xmassy scents! Currently got Bath and Body Works Apple Ale burning as I type! These 3 all look delicious, I really want to pick up some Yankee candles when I am in the UK-I bought their advent calender this year!

  9. I live candles- especially bath and body works candles because I lone to reuse the jars when I'm done.


  10. I adore the Salted Caramel candle, I purchased it a few weeks ago and have already used it all! I also love their Sugar Cookie scent, quite similar to Salted Caramel but just a tad sweeter!

  13. Oh my, I've missed your blog so much!!
    I really want to try Yankee Candles but I'm always a bit scared because they seem to be so strong, and strong scents always give me headaches! hahah I really love the ones from Bath & Body Works.. have you ever tried those? Anyways, one day I will give it a go to the yankee ones :)

    Hope everything is ok with you Ferdie...

  14. Oh deary me, I wish they had Salted Caramel where I live, we only have 4 scents out of the Christmas selection! I'm getting a new Yankee tomorrow, cannot wait. Great post. x
