Yankee Candle - Vanilla Cupcake

Eeeek, my first ever Yankee Candle!
Now there’s not many bloggers that can say that they have never had or tried a Yankee Candle, but I’m ashamed to say that I never have! I think it was because I wasn’t really too sure on why a candle would cost so much, and what the big deal was with them!
But after receiving this one, with help from the extremely helpful, and nice people at Very's customer service, I now completely understand what the hype is with these, and I’ve put one on my Christmas list to Santa! (mum!).
The story behind me getting this candle is opening some post from very last week, and they had a leaflet in for a free Yankee Candle when you spend £50 or more. I thought to myself, this is a perfect time to try one – for free! I had some Christmas shopping to do on there, and the offer couldn't have come at a better time. So added everything to my basket, remembered the normal free gift, and checkout, completely forgetting the Yankee offer! *smack head on heads*
As soon as I realized, and after screaming to mum about it, I thought id email customer services and just see if they could help me out in any way. I wasn’t expecting anything as it had been my fault, but I couldn’t of been more wrong!
They emailed me back with 4 hours, and added it to my order! I was completely overjoyed, and it was so nice of them!
Anyway, the candle I received was the vanilla cupcake scent, and OH MY GOD! Its lush.
Completely makes me want to start baking, and eat lots of cute cupcakes!
It is very sweet, so if your not that kind of person, then this probably isn’t for you. But seeing as its getting ever closer to the festive season, I think this is lovely for this time of year, and settling down with a hot chocolate!
I got a small jar candle, which says it will last for 25-40 hours. Which is really good going for the size!
I’m definitely impressed by Yankee Candles, and hopefully I will find one under my tree Christmas day.


  1. Scented candles are the best! Especially at this time of the year! Xx
