Yankee Candles are crap. Cheap, wax based product that smell like a gas station bathroom. They don't burn cleanly and don't last long. You will end up repainting your ceiling if you use them often.

Spend a little more and buy a nice soy based candle like Voluspa. Sure, it costs more but the scents are clean and luxurious.

cheap product and cheap quality

Home For The Holidays is one of Yankee Candles 'Festive Collection' fragrances and is officially described as "holiday spices of cinnamon and clove, mixed with earthy cedarwood and balsam". There's not much else to say, except it smells like the wood is pine - that must be the combination of cedarwood and balsam. Also I sometimes pick up on orange too, but maybe my nose is playing tricks o me, because I automatically think of spiced oranges because of the clove and cinnamon.


I've found that the tarts and tea lights throw off a stronger scent than the candles, so I think that they are the better buys. I personally prefer to use the tealights; as well as having a stronger fragrance, there's the fact that for the price of a box of 12 scented tealights you get a total of 48 to 72 hours burn-time, so they offer the most value for money. The tealight costs less then 12 tarts or samplers would, so as well as being cheaper - and offering a similar burn time - then either the small jars and tumblers, and over half of the price less then the medium jars or tumblers.
