Hello everyone! I thought I'd bring along another little post for my Christmas Gift Series. There was quite a big gap inbetween this one and the last but I have lots of photos taken in preparation so keep an eye out. I plan to do about 3 or 4 for over the next couple of days!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Yankee Candle gift set. I can't seem to find this on the Yankee Candle website but I got this one from a Dobbies Garden Centre and I've seen them in Clintons as well. It costs £7.50 which means you're saving yourself a bit of money compared to buying the samplers at £1.75 each. I think this is a great idea for a gift as it contains 5 different scents so the lucky recipient is definitely going to like one of them. One of the things that I find most difficult for is buying presents for people that I don't really know that well like relative you aren't too close to or say secret santas. So gift sets are a nice idea because it takes the pressure off.
I absolutely love Yankee Candles so I was really excited to get this as it meant that I could try out lots of their Christmas scents. Christmas Eve is a very nice fragrance. It's quite sweet so would be a good one if you're not keen on overly spicey candles. I think there might be some apple in there somewhere. Snow In Love is a very fresh scent. In a way a very clean scent sot it's almost snow like in a weird way. If you like things like clean cotton and baby powder then you'll love this. Apple & Pine Needle was actually the only scent in this set that I wasn't too keen on. It's very strong and I'm just not a massive fan of the smell of pine to start with. It does smell somewhat like a real Christmas tree but is a bit too strong for my liking. Christmas Cookie is one that's actually been a pleasant surprise. For the longest time I've been avoiding buying any of the sweeter scents from Yankee Candle as I thought that I'd get sick of them very quickly. I absolutely loved this even if it did make me a bit peckish for some shortbread. And finally, Red Apple Wreath. This was very similar to Christmas Eve but was a bit more spicey. It's a nice scent but nothing to go crazy over.
I really enjoyed burning my way through this set. It would make a great present for someone or even pick one up for yourself? It's a good way to find out what scents you really like before committing to a larger jar.
