Yankee Candles Tried and Tested #1

Hi Lovelies, I hope you are all well?
Ever since I was 15 I have always liked scented candles and I have no clue how many candles I have had over the years but I can tell you it won't be far off 100 I am sure. Yankee Candle was a brand I found when I started blogging and before I started blogging I thought they were just overpriced candles and just didn't bother trying them but the reviews on them changed my mind on them and I just had to try them out for myself and my first ever Yankee Candle was french lavender which was just heavenly and since then this has to be my favourite brand because the smells is so intense and is so relaxing and very homely too.

I went to Tesco to get these 3 small samplers and 2 of them cost 99p and the fresh apple was a bargain of 20p so I couldn't miss out on that one. I am a bit dubious of the home inspirations by yankee candles because the scents can be a bit of a hit and miss for me but you know me being me I wanted to give them another chance to see how they go.
Exotic Fruits
I was very pleasantly surprised by this one, it smells like a fresh exotic mango with a mixture of solero ice lollies! It took about 20 minutes to smell this candle which is pretty impressive considering that most smaller candles I have tried take ages to have a scent to them. The sampler lasted me about 3/4 days which is about 15 hours.

Sweet Petals
I am usually not a big fan of floral fragrances with candles because some can smell quite fake but this one yet again surprised me at how nice it smelled!! It had a very nice scent of fresh roses that you would find in your garden, ugh just heavenly. This one has to be my favourite from the 3 and has changed my mind a little with floral fragrances. As above this lasted about 15 hours too.

Fresh Apple
Honestly this candle needs a new name and my goodness it reminded me so much of Christmas! It had a nice fresh and spicy smell and I kinda wish I had this around December time last year as it just cries out festiveness. I am very surprised it was only 20p but then again I am not complaining because it was a complete bargain and so warming. This one had a bit of a taster burning time of about 12 hours but seeing as it has a lovely scent I really don't mind.

I have used all of these candles now and I am not sure what is next on my Yankee Candle list but I am sure it might be a floral or a fresh smell, stay tuned for more candle and other blog posts coming on my blog soon.

What is your favourite candle scent?
