I really can not wrap my head around the fact it is November - yes it is chilly here in Scotland but in all seriousness where has the year gone? If you are trying to ditch the sweet treats or simply want something a little more novelty than a chocolate advent calendar the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar 2014 could be the very thing?
This year's calendar features 24 doors (of course) each with one of six festive Yankee Candle tealight's as a daily treat. On the 24th you receive two candles so you have a spare for Christmas morning - isn't that delightful? The six fragrances are: Icicles (slightly masculine with pine and cinnamon), Angel's Wings (soft, clean thing fresh cotton), Snowflake Cookie (sweet with hints of vanilla), Cranberry Ice (fruity not overly festive), Christmas Cookie (sweet, vanilla based) and Christmas Garland (green, pine) each lovely in their own right. In all honesty I am glad to see Snowflake Cookie back as it is a personal favourite and I have ordered a large jar to see through the winter but a little gutted that Merry Marshmallow didn't have a come back. Maybe next year?
I see this as a great way to experience a number of Yankee Candle's Christmas fragrances with the added element of surprise. A lovely gift even if the person you have in mind is yourself ha!
