Yankee Candle Simply Sweet Pea Review

Hi Lovelies
When it comes to candles they are pretty much everywhere in my flat, I love displaying them even though I don't always use them all apart from the ones that are in my living room on my fire place. Candles are just fab all year round but I love them even more during the Autumn and Winter months because candles just warm up my living room and also make the place smell lovely too.  

I have my eyes open for Halloween themed and scented candles but until then I've been using this lovely bright pink home inspiration candle by yankee candle. They sell this range in ASDA and come in a few different fragrance such as this one which is called 'simply sweet pea'.

These candles look a little bit different to other Yankee Candles but they are very well made. This candle is in a medium size and cost me an affordable £9, so its a little bit cheaper then the usual Yankee candle which costs around £18.99, so they is big savings to be had their.

Yankee Candle sweet pea review
 My Thoughts
I love the design of this jar and I think it looks very nice placed on top of my fire place, its a nice vibrant pink and has nice labelling thats designed just right as its not over the top, just enough info with a nice picture of sweet peas just like most Yankee Candles you see on the market.

As soon as I opened the lid of the candle the scent just flowed out beautifully and it had a nice delicate scent even before I lit the candle itself. The wick is very thick so I found it nice and simple to light quickly without a fuss.

Once lit it smells gorgeous and after about 20 minutes my whole living room smelt like sweet peas, the scent was very similar to the real sweet peas just a little  sweeter then the actual flowers ( my nana used to grow sweet peas and I remember going in her garden smelling them). I have my candles on for roughly 3 hours every night and the smell in the background while blogging or watching TV is very nice and for me makes my flat more homely.  I have used this candle for well over 20 hours in total now and the wax is just above the top of the label, so I think its great value for money and I am tempted to actually try more of the home inspiration yankee candles in the future.

I really like this candle and super happy that I bought it and I just love how sweet it smells and how much it made my flat smell like sweet peas. I think its very affordable and to be honest its made me think twice about buying the more expensive candles but with that being said I still like the original Yankee candles because they have more scents to choose from and I love it when  they have candles out for different holidays like Halloween and my personal favourite Christmas.

I hope you all enjoyed my post on this gorgeous candle, I have lots of other reviews on my Directory about other candles that I have tried over the past two years. I am on lots of social media so don't forget to follow me, the links are below and also on my right hand side bar.
