Christmas Cupcakes Yankee Candle
Hey guys! It’s time for another candle review, this time it’s Yankee Candle’s ‘Christimas Cupcake’ Large Jar Candle.
So I kinda missed out on the whole Yankee Candle craze last year as at that time, I wasn’t really into candles and all that jazz. Well, times sure have changed!
Winter and Christmas are coming and lately, I’ve been buying loads of candles to keep warm in the evenings. One day, I decided to go on eBay to see if I could get any deals on a Yankee and managed to get this Christmas Cupcake one for £14.00 for the large jar.
I love the overall designs of the Yankee jars – the design looks like it should be in the living room of some some stately pre-1900 English estate. Very regal!
To be honest, I thought this scent would put me into the Christmas spirit, but all it’s done honestly, is made me gag. It’s an extremely sickly/sweet smell. Sort of like mixing candyfloss with Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb and white sugar. I like sweet scents, but this is too overpowering for my liking.
The burning time is pretty decent though, I will say. When I lit the candle for the first time, I lit it for around 3 hours and the scent lingered in my room immediately for about 4-5 hours.
I would definitely purchase another Yankee candle, but not a sweet smelling one!
Does anyone have any scents they could recommend?
