It comes as no surprise that I am a huge Yankee Candle fan. Contrary to popular belief, these babies are actually made in the UK! I like most of their scents, but some strike me as being particularly British, such as the ‘smell of rain’ (well, really) and mulled wine.

Here are some of my recommendations:

Mandarin Cranberry | It’s Christmas in a candle! It smells of orange, spices and cranberry. It smells like mulled wine mixed with gravy. It’s to die for!

Garden Sweet Pea | It smells just like the countryside… One of my favourites to lit up on one of those gloomy evenings, whilst reading a good book and sipping tea out of a vintage cup.

Cinnamon Stick |If you love cinnamon, you can’t go wrong with this. It reminds me of autumn, of Christmas, of pancake day, of lovely apple pies. A must.

Macintosh Spice | Apple pie. Enough said.

Apple Cider | That’s pretty explanatory.

Cranberry Chutney | Yum, yum.

Let me know if you like these kinds of posts, I wouldn’t mind posting some more of these. Leave a comment below, if you want. xx
