Transitional Yankee Candle Fragrances

Transitional Yankee Candle Fragrances

I enjoy Pumpkin and Apple scented home fragrances as much as the next person, in fact I actively seek such notes out when visiting the US (Bath and Body Works is candle heaven). However I prefer to indulge in such notes once we are fully in the depths of Autumn. Yes the days are becoming both shorter and chiller here in the UK but I don't deem it to be fully Autumn until October; September is a funny month - not quite Summer, not quite Autumn (well in my mind at least), a transitional period if you will? As such I have packed away all my tropical and traditional fruit based home fragrances and began burning more comforting and altogether richer varieties.


As you can probably tell I am going through a wax tart stage; they are cheap, plentiful and come in every fragrance variety you can imagine - great if you are fickle and get bored with any one scent quickly. Unlike traditional candles, you can create your own personal scent fusions by combining a few fragrances at once. The obsession continues. Here are a few of my current favourite Yankee fragrances...

Transitional Yankee Candle Fragrances

Yankee Aloe Water - a soft, calming yet uplifting aquatic scent that is tinged with a green Aloe note. It reminds me of the rain and as such is the perfect choice for burning while snuggled up on the sofa with a good book or movie.

Yankee Ginger Dusk - if you enjoy the fragrance of ginger this is for you, rich, warm and slightly citrus based at the same time. The perfect afternoon fragrance - it reminds me of sunsets and the last rays of Summer.

Yankee Fireside Treats - one of the few fragrances in the world (yes really), that I never grow tired of - slightly smoky, slightly sweet. Depending on the time of the year this reminds me of camping and being young, yet when the colder seasons approach it is more reminiscent of roaring fires and Guy Fawkes night. Easily my favourite home fragrance ever.

Yankee Shea Butter - warm, rich and comforting, all the while being creamy and indulgent. It smells very true to life; the most wonderfully cosy and familiar scent that is my go to on rainy days.

Yankee Oud Oasis - a deep, seductive floral based Oud scent. If you like strong, intense floral notes and of course Oud this is one to try. It oddly reminds me of long, warm evenings spent at home in the garden enjoying the last days of Summer.

Transitional Yankee Candle Fragrances

Yankee Cassis - a rich berry fragrance that has a somewhat home cooking vibe, it has me dreaming of freshly baked fruit pies and jam. Great for brightening up a rainy evening, not so great for staving off sugar pangs.

Yankee Wild Fig - a sweet, fruity yet intense Fig fragrance, if you enjoy Fig scents then this is one to stock up on as it smells very similar to more expensive Fig based home fragrances.

Yankee Cappuccino Truffle - coffee and chocolate notes combine to create a rich and very indulgent fragrance.  It reminds me a lot of the scent of Coffee shops: warm, welcoming, and very familiar - great for curling up with a book and listening to the sound of rain. Yes that sounds incredibly twee but I do live in Scotland - rain is a daily occurrence ha!

You can find all of the above fragrances via Yankee Candle for £1.49 each - link.
