Last weekend me and my boyfriend decided to pop into our local garden centre because I wanted to stock up on a few more candles and I was excited to see that they had some of their Easter Collection out. One of the Easter gift sets quickly caught my eye and my boyfriend kindly bought it for me (find it HERE), within the gift set was a votive holder and three votive's in yummy scents such as Vanilla Cupcake, Bunny Cake and Jelly Bean which I just had to review for you all today!
Jelly Bean was actually released last Easter but I've never seen it in votive form before which is why I literally lept at the gift set it came in, you can get the large glass jar very easily but I always like to buy a votive first to make sure I really like the scent before committing to the large jar. Jelly Bean is described as 'a colourful, fun childhood treat you never outgrow, bursting with the scent of sugary sweet fruits' doesn't it sound yummy. I actually love the scent of Jelly Bean, just imagine the smell you get when opening a bag of jelly beans because that's really what this one smells like and I love it. It has a sugary sweets smell with fruity hints but mostly I get an American grape kind of smell which is one of my favourite scents and really takes me back to being little! The scent throw is medium, it's definitely not overpowering but fills the house with it's gorgeous scent really quickly, and even though it's sugary I never found it sickly at all.
All the Yankee Candle votive/samplers claim to provide up to 15 hours of fragrance and Jelly Bean certainly lasted well, I actually burnt Jelly Bean in my kitchen this time around and it filled the room within minutes and wafted right upstairs, arhhh its so lovely and I think I'm even going to have to treat myself to the large jar now he he.
Have you tried Jelly Bean before beaut's? What did you think? I'd love to know.
