Hi guys! As you know I am a huge fan of Yankee Candles. (Here’s my last post on their Winter collection.) So I am super hyped to show you their Spring and Summer scents for 2016. Without further ado let’s get right into the newest Yankee Candle scent, colour and cuteness bombs. 🙂
Firstly I got Yankee Candle’s My Serenity Spring collection. The set contains the scents Lemongrass & Ginger, Moonlight and My Serenity. All three candles promise a calm spring awakening not only with their scent but also with their calming colours.
Lemongrass & Ginger is very invigorating and thus great for waking up and getting the day started. It smells of gentle lemongrass and just-cut ginger which both give it a clean, fresh kick.
The complete opposite of Lemongrass & Ginger is Yankee Candle’s Moonlight which is a blend of bamboo, woody notes and bergamot that give the scent a heavily intoxicating feeling.
My Serenity I would describe as the perfect mix of the heaviness from Moonlight and the tangy freshness from Lemongrass & Ginger. The scent is composed of warm pear, orange mingle, tropical flowers and soft musk. The soft musk gives the candle its calming qualities whereas the fruit and flowers add a hint of crispness. Personally this one is my favourite from the Spring collection because it combines invigorating components as well as a deep calmness.
The second trio I got is Yankee Candle’s Summer 2016 Riviera Escape set. It contains the scents Olive & Thyme, Summer Peach and Riviera Escape. They create an atmosphere of sunny beaches and the summer holidays.
Olive & Thyme is a fresh and herbal scent which reminds me of the Mediterranean coast with its olive leaf, citrus and musk. At first I found this candle rather overwhelming and powerful but after a few minutes it’s heavier musky side evaporated and morphed into the citrus and olive leaf scent which is really delicious.
Summer Peach reminds me of drinking delicious Peach Ice Tea at the pool in Summer. I think I’ve just discovered my all time favourite Yankee Candle! It’s captivating sweetness makes me want to smell the candle all day long. If you’re not into the overwhelming sweetness though this probably isn’t the right scent for you.
The last one is Riviera Escape which is way more subtle than Summer Peach. It gives you the feeling of those Mediterranean hillsides overlooking the azure blue ocean laying below them. As I prefer strong scents this isn’t my absolute fave but if you’re going for a discreet background scent then Riviera Escape is what you’ll want to go for.
Lastly I got this beautifully designed candle lighter which you can find here. I love how the shape reminds me a little of a Harry Potter magic wand! When you say Lumos (and push the button) it actually lights up. 😉 It also comes in this cute little silver box just as Harry’s wand from Olivander’s.
To conclude I would say that my favourite is Summer Peach and of course the cool lighter. To be honest though I am a huge fan of anything made by Yankee Candle! I love their cute but still luxurious design, the amazing colours and scents and of course that they last a long time.
