YANKEE CANDLE - PINK SANDS

There's nothing I love more than coming home from a long day at work, slipping into my pyjamas and lighting a candle before sitting down to relax and with my flat being so spacious, a good quality scented candle like Yankee Candles is a must if you're looking to fill the entire room with a lovely scent!

Pink Sands is my latest Yankee Candle, after Jonny bought me it for my birthday. Not only is a lovely pink colour (which matches my bedroom decor nicely!), but it smells delicious. It's really difficult to pinpoint the scent, but think florals, fruits - possibly some watermelon in there - and vanilla. It's not as sweet as my usual candle choices, but the fruity, floral scent is very relaxing and not musky like I expected it to be.

I have to admit though, I do prefer the sweeter scents (although being on a diet and having the flat filled with the smell of chocolate, red velvet cake and other treats isn't the best idea!) and I'm a bit jealous of the Salted Caramel Yankee Candle that Jonny bought himself, which smells every bit as good as it sounds!

What's your favourite candle? I'm already excited to buy some Christmas scents!

I am burning red velvet and i love it's so yummy :), I get mine off a lady who delivers yankee candles around Glasgow and Lanarkshire areas she is a little cheaper than the shops which is good, just waiting on all the xmas candles to be delivered excited :) xx

  4. Pink Sands is gorgeous! I can definitely smell the watermelon - that's the scent I thought of what I first has a sniff of it. The salted caramel sounds amazing too! I might have to buy it! I love Christmas Cookie for Christmas time :) xx

  5. It's fair to say I'm a little bit obsessed with Yankee candles. They really are amazing! I'm not such a fan of the really sweet smells, but my favourites are Midnight Jasmine, Beach Walk and Garden Hideaway. I've just bought Blissful Autumn which I'm quite excited about too. I can recommend the double wick tumblers too as they burn much more evenly than the jars xx

  11. I love natural, woody/pine smelling candles with a hint of vanilla. So relaxing after a long day at work. Love your blog by the way.

  12. I love the Pink Sands scent. The colour doesn't go in any of my rooms though, so I've never bought it for that reason. Maybe I should just buy it any way... The scent reminds me of a particular sweet but I can't think what.

    Just now I've been using the Baby Powder Yankee Candle in the flat - it smells just like Johnston's talc! :)
