As most of you probably know I am addicted to Yankee candles; especially during this gorgeous autumnal weather there’s always candles dotted around my house.
I recently got a selection of Yankee Candle votives (also tealights and a large jar but those smells I already knew I loved!) and thought I would share 7 of my favourites right now:
One for every day of the week! -links marked with * are affiliate links.

Yankee Candle – Cinnamon Stick *

Processed with MOLDIV

One of my favourite smells is definitely Cinnamon Stick- that’s probably why the jar is almost empty! It smells cosy, delicious and like cinnamon (but not the sickening type of scent) Although it is a strong smell, because of the amazing quality Yankee has with every single one of their candles it is not overwhelming. Light this one and the entire flat smells like autumn. Absolutely divine.

Yankee Candle – Autumn Night *

This sort of smells like a hug, Don’t know how to explain it, but the name doesn’t lie.
Perfect scent, for a perfect autumn night!

Yankee Candle – Red Raspberry 

Processed with MOLDIV

This scent is sweet, yet warming and reminds me of a lazy Sunday- rain tapping on the window while you clamp yourself to the last scents of summer. Outside it may be cold, but you can warm yourself to the smell of fresh berries.

Yankee Candle – Fireside Treats 

Processed with MOLDIV

I hate the taste of marshmallows – but love the smell of fireside treats. It reminds me of those autumn nights in front of a crispy fire, with a cosy blanket and a hot chocolate.
Whenever I light this I just feel so cosy and autumnal, the perfect ending to a stressful day.

Yankee Candle – Cappuccino Truffle 

Processed with MOLDIV

A great candle to lit any time of day- especially in the morning while getting ready. Even the smell of coffee gets me going in the morning… I might have a little caffeine problem!

<a href=”http://Yankee Candle Large Jar Candle, Shea Butter“>Yankee Candle – Shea Butter *


This smells like perfection. Shea butter is a scent that always speaks to me, be it in beauty products or candles! It smells clean, and is strong enough to make a large room smell completely like shea butter, I love it!

Yankee Candle – Pain au Raisin *


This candle smells exactly like delicious baked goods.
Warning: it will make you hungry.

Now, about this votives set and why I like buying votive before purchasing a larger jar:
You can get a set of 24 Votives on sale here, I highly recommend getting a set of these when you like to try out scents before investing in a large candle.
Yankee Candle is a high quality brand and since large candles last up to 150 hours, I see them as quite a commitment!
Votives are a great way to find your perfect match!
Make sure that if your burn them you keep them in a suitable candle holder, since votives consist of just wax it can get quite messy if you don’t.

This set would also make a great Christmas present, so if you want one: grab one while they’re on sale! 🙂

  1. As much as I love candles and my wife and I really did…..having a curious cheetah doesn’t allow me to have candles in my home. But please feel to light one up,put a placard in front of it that says “Hi Paladin” and I would be happy!
