Yankee Candle Kilimanjaro Stars

Yankee Candle Kilimanjaro Stars review
 Hi lovelies!
I have been a fan of Yankee Candles for a few years now and just love choosing new ones to try. I decided to get myself 2 Yankee candles for a little treat for my birthday and I chose this one Kilimanjaro stars and midsummer nights from a Yankee Candle shop in town. For me choosing a Yankee candle can take me a while but the other day I chose these ones in record time as I love the name of both candles.

For me I love buying candles for my living room and I like lighting them during the evenings all year round but during winter its just a match made in heaven. I always go back to Yankee candles as the scents of the candles are stronger then most candles I have tried and the smells match the names most of the time. I know Yankee candles are a little bit on the expensive side but I think they are worth every penny as they are so long lasting and the scent doesn't reduce over time either on candles I have tried before either.

Yankee Candle Kilimanjaro Stars review
 Yankee Candle Kilimanjaro Stars is fresh scented candle and is from the out of Africa Collection. the scent of  the candle is cool mint and earthy patchouli with pure natural extracts. I bought the small jar which was £8.99 and It has a burning time of between 25-40 hours. The candle is a beautiful dark blue colour and the design has beautiful Kilimanjaro stars the combination of that looks perfect, I think it would of looked even better on a larger jar though.
 I have tried a few Yankee Candles before and as much as I love the look of this candle its not the strongest scented candle in the world and once lit I can barely smell it unfortunately which disappointed me quite a bit because usually when I light a Yankee candle my whole flat smells of the particular candle I am using but with this one I can barely smell it in my living room. The scent itself is really nice though and very fresh smelling, its just shame its not as strong as other candles I have used before. The candle itself is long lasting I must admit though and I still have it nearly full and its been used for at least 12 hours already, so its good value for the long lasting side.

What is your favourite Yankee Candle?

  1. Ooo I bet this smells incredible! I absolutely love Yankee candles, there's an outlet store near me so I get them on the cheap ;). I'm still trying to get through my Christmas haul though!


  2. My favourites are the neutral's like vanilla and the cotton scents, gentle and breezey! :)

  3. It's a shame this was a little disappointing! I love anything cakey.. although would recommend giving sunlight on snow a sniff from their simply home range, It such a lovely smell and unlike anything else I own.

    Ahhh I love a good Yankee candle! Have to say though they do need to be strong. Sometimes you can sit there and forget you have even lit one as the smell just stops smelling! I love the sweet apple scent. Fruity flavours are my favs!

    It's a shame it's not very strong, but glad to hear the actually scent is nice! You can't beat a yankee candle still ;) x

    Hi Melissa. I'm loving your blog! My favorite time to bring out my candles is in the fall and winter. I have a few Yankee Candles and I agree they are worth the extra cost.
