Mmmmm so soooo good. I bought 'Pain Au Raisin' the other day and it smelt like a bakery when I burnt it in my room. I don't usually detect notes, but you could smell the raisins found in a pastry! Ugh so good.

Now I don't like all the scents they offer, but the foodie ones I have purchased over the years have all been to die for.

In Australia these are …

I'm pretty "on the fence" about Yankee Candles. Here in Canada, they're really on the pricey side so I only purchase when there's a "deal" - 50% off or buy-one/get-one but even then, they're a lot more expensive than B&BW, which also often go on sale. I also find some of their scents really off-putting, but there are others I really like (and I guess …Read more

I don't understand why or how Yankee Candle has seemingly gone downhill in recent years. I used to love them and always looked forward to their new releases. Sadly, that is not the case anymore. While these look like they will smell good while burning, there is usually a good deal of visible wax in the jars, which would lead one to believe the candle will have a strong "throw" …Read more

Cant begin to tell you how frustrated the british public are with the rapid decline in the quality of yankee candle products. As a retailer we have so much competition because its yankee candle uk policy to sell in every outlet possible in every town. In my town there are 30 outlets!
But what is so embarrassing is the number of complaints we get from the public that they dont smell of …

I used to like YC but I've given up on them, I think the quality has gone way down and they're a bit of a rip-off. They may smell good in the store, and that includes the plug-ins, but at home the scent ends up being very weak. And I find the stronger scented ones to smell very artificial and chemical. I found myself returning them more often than not. I now prefer BBW, and quite …Read more

I really wanted to like Yankee Candles as I had seen many positive reviews about them.

However, sadly that wasn't the case. I bought some votives and wax melts first so I could try a variety of scents without it costing too much. I also bought a melt warmer. The fragrances I really liked were black coconut, midnight jasmine, vanilla lime and white gardenia. …

I have a love/hate relationship with YC, but these days I find myself making too many returns. Is it just me, or has the quality of the orginal jar candles gone down?
BEWARE: the large jars that are $30 seem to no longer have a good scent throw. DO NOT let the scent fool you in store, I literally cannot smell any of them unless I stand right next to the candle while it's burning. You …

I use Vanilla often. It's great in the kitchen to help remove food odors. I did love the "old" and well known packaging. The newer packaging doesn't have as much glass and a metal/tin lid. That I do not like. They are costly in my area. Some of the newer scents aren't pleasing to me. I like Black Coconut.
Aside from tapers for Advent or stick holders I only use …
