Yankee Candle Madagascan Orchid | Review

yankee candle madagascan review
Hi Lovelies
If you said to me "Melissa how many candles have you tried over the years?' I would answer... I haven't the foggiest idea! Did I need a new candle? the quick answer is hell no but I love trying different scents and having new scents quite regularly.  So here is my beautiful new addiction to ever growing candle collection and the scent is 'Madagascan Orchid' from my favourite candle brand ever Yankee Candle.

Over the years I have tried a few different brands but for some reason I tend to always come back to Yankee Candle because I just love the shape of the jars, the names of the scents and of course the actual scents themselves.

yankee candle madagascan review

This candle has a very exotic kinda smell with lots of different floral notes in it too. I have never tried a sweet and floral from Yankee Candle before so was pretty excited to give this a try.

The candle itself has a little sticker on the front saying its floral scented candle and I can 100% agree with that because once you open the lid of this it comes to life with the amount of flowers you can smell in it.

Lighting it was a breeze as with all yankee candles because the wick is massive therefore making that much easier to light. The burn time for the large candles is between 110-150 hours which I think is just the bees knees.

I have had this candle for coming up to a month now and I have used this most days now and one of the reasons I love this candle so much is the 'scent' as it is so warming and reminds me of the summer when all the flowers are in bloom and its warm enough in the garden to sit down and have a pimms or an ice cream.

Overall I am glad I have got 'Madagascan Orchid' as its scent is beautifully done and is not overpowering at all but its strong enough that you can actually smell it if you know what I mean. I cant say I will stop buying candles any time soon because I just love the whole routine I have with them which is have a shower, put my pyjamas on then light my candles and to complete it I watch some Netflix.

What is your favourite Yankee Candle?

    I love Yankee Candles and they just are such good value as they last for ages. I am still using up some of my winter stock but fancy trying this next x

  14. I love candles too, although I've moved on to wax melts and my electric warmer this last year. I love walking in to a room and smelling how nice they make everywhere smell.
