I’ve never brought a Yankee candle before. I love candles, but I’ve always thought Yankee candles were rather overpriced. The only interaction I’ve had with this brand before was in a card shop that sells them local to me. But now, a whole shop full have popped up! They were having a promotional offer for the store launch, so I thought I would take the plunge and buy one, since they were on offer!
I smelt a few, and to be honest they didn’t have a massive range! I don’t know if it’s because they have been so popular on promotion, or that’s there usual range, but this is the only one that caught my eye, and nose!
It really does smell strawberries! I don’t really notice the smell to be honest when I’ve burnt it in my room, but when I leave and come back I can certainly smell it. I’ve had it burning a couple of hours every night for neatly two weeks and it hasn’t gone down too much. I love the jar too. I’m planning on using it when it’s burnt out for my make up brushes. Still looking for ways to organise my make up!
The only thing that’s miffed me a bit is that it doesn’t burn very evenly. I feel like a bit of product is being wasted just stuck to the sides. I don’t know if it’s because the jar is so large that it can’t get to the sides?
Then, as if the candle had seen me type this… The next night, it leveled out! Maybe it’s because I burnt it for longer… Or the flame was reaching the sides to melt the wax… I don’t know!
Overall I’m happy with my purchase, I don’t think i would buy a full sized one at full price (£20 for 22oz) but if they are on offer I’d be willing to have a nose, hopefully they will have more to choose from next time!
