With all the snow lately and the Polar Vortex looming over us again, being stuck inside can really be a bummer! I received four of the new holiday fragrances and while the names conjure of thoughts of the holidays, the scents bring back a bit of a warm cozy feeling, making having to be stuck inside not all that bad. Yankee Candle released four new fragrances for Holiday 2013 that are still available in stores and online, but only for a limited time.
Snowflake Cookie – A new fragrance that is sure to charm: perfectly pretty cookies, deliciously decorated with sugary pink icing. This one reminds me of butter cookies and is a pretty pink shimmery color.
Merry Marshmallow – Who doesn’t love marshmallows in their cocoa! Find happiness in a delightfully luscious and creamy soft concoction of marshmallow and vanilla. This was the kids favorite! It reminds me of sugar cookies and melted marshmallows.
Celebrate Christmas – A comforting recipe of spices and sweets. This one is my favorite scent. It smells like gingerbread, spices and a hint of apple.
Season of Peace (Retail Exclusive) – Reflect on the silently peaceful solitude of winter’s snowfall, captured in this cool, enchanting white musk blend. This one smells like fresh soap with a strong musk scent.
Yankee Candle fragrance oils are a complex combinations of top notes (the first scent impressions; the most volatile ingredients, they evaporate quickly) which leads to the middle notes (evolving scents which develop over a bit more time; the heart of the fragrance) and then base notes (underlying notes, which gradually come through, the strongest and longest lasting) that are developed across the globe to bring you the very best fragrance experience.
Tips to getting the best candle burn:
- ~Keep wick trimmed to 1/8 inch at all times.
- ~The wick should be trimmed every 4 hours of burn time.
- ~Candles should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. Let cool for two hours before relighting.
- ~Discontinue use when ½” of wax remains at the bottom of the jar.
