Yankee Christmas Eve Candle

Yankee Christmas Eve Candle


I was going to post about Yankee Christmas Eve Candle on Christmas Eve so that it would be fitting and then I thought to myself that wouldn't at all be fair in case anyone wanted to go out and track down one to light on such eve. After a quick search online this does appear to be out of stock via most online retailers proving it is a popular choice but as recently as yesterday I have seen it in local Yankee retailers so I wouldn't worry.

"Traditional Christmas scents of a warm hearth, sugared plums, and candied fruits."

Out of all the Yankee candles I own this has to be one of the trickiest to sum up - it is both fruity yet sweet in an artificial sense and somewhat reminds me of boiled candy sweets. It is rich, warming and does fill the room with a scent that will transport you back to childhood and the excitement of Christmas day. It manages to encapsulate all connotations of the term sweet - including endearing and really is perfect to light in the run up to Christmas Eve to tap into that giddy childish excitement the majority of us have.

As I bought the largish size of the Yankee Christmas Eve my plans are to light it tonight and all the way up to Christmas Eve and then burn it on Christmas Day before putting it in storage for Christmas 2014. It is always nice to start new traditions isn't it?

  13. I have mine burning away at the moment!! I LOVE this candle.
    It's my favourite out of the Christmas range. You see i'm a bit of a Yankee freak! We have a Yankee candle in every different room in my house:
    Snowflake Cookie - smells so yummy!!
    Christmas Cupcake - Very similar to Snowflake Cookie
    Cherries on Snow - My other favourite! It's gorgeous!
    Sugared Apple - smells so much like christmas!
    Macintosh Spice - CHRISTMAS
    Spiced Apple - CHRISTMAS AGAIN
    But Christmas Eve is the most Christmasy!!!

  15. I'm so jealous of everyone lighting Yankee candles :D They seem so incredibly nice! The only way of getting them for me, is ordering them online but that scares my a little because the candle might break etc...

    Lovely post though! I'll stick to my Ikea candles for now hahaha :)

  18. I'm staying with a friend tomorrow night and I brought her this candle for us to light together and enjoy whilst watching a Christmas film and drinking a few glasses of wine.

    Merry Christmas.

  19. I love this candle! It smells delicious and although it doesn't remind me of Christmas (Christmas Cookie and Red Velvet do that for me) it's still a lovely scent to burn around this time of year. :)
