Yankee Candle Halloween Collection Reviewed

Hey beaut's!

It's that time of year again where I go slightly candle crazy, I love nothing more than getting super cosy at home during Autumn and Christmas with all my candles and fairy lights on, so when I saw my local garden centre had the brand new Yankee Candle Halloween Collection out I just couldn't resist picking them up to try! These where actually in my garden centre in August which is when I picked these up, see I told you I get excited he he!

Much like every Halloween, Yankee Candle jazz up the packaging and bring out something new and limited edition for their large glass jars and this years seriously do not disappoint! However the new packaging isn't the only thing to get excited about this year, yes we still have Candy Corn and Witches Brew to burn but theres also a brand new Halloween scent, Forbidden Apple, say whatttt!!!!!  
Forbidden Apple is described as 'a seductive potion that takes apple—mixed with bergamot, black oak and vanilla noir—to someplace forbidden' for me this smells soooo much like a crisp, slightly sour green apple that has just been cut into, its quite sweet smelling which I love without being sickly and I get a slight hint of vanilla when it's burning too but  predominantly it's apple scented. As this is a new scent for 2016 I would get your hands on it when you can as I can see this one being super popular this year!

Next up is Candy Corn which is hands down my favourite Halloween scent by Yankee Candle and I always make sure I stock up on it when it come out each year, this one is described as 'the familiar, sweet scent of candy corn which is a fond reminder of Halloween fun and treats' which I have to say is pretty on point to be honest. If you like sweet scents then you'll love Candy Corn because it definitely has that 'candy/sugary' vibe running through it, I also get waves of vanilla, caramel and butterscotch when I burn this, oh my it's divine! Even though Candy Corn is a sugary, sweet scent it isn't sickly or heavy at all, instead its very light and and the scent throw is subtle but still recognisable. I love this one soooooo much!

Finally we have Withes Brew, this another one we see brought back every year by Yankee Candle, this one is described as 'The spicy sweet aroma of exotic patchouli, casts a captivating spell!'. This too me is like a proper, realistic Halloween themed candle because it actually smells quite 'scary', it's very musky and masculine and actually does make me think that an actual witches brew would smell like this, it's earthy with a aftershave twist! This one  really isnt my cup of tea to be honest, only because I love sweeter scents rather than musky ones but I'd definitely say it really captures the Halloween vibe in this scent!   

All the Yankee Candle wax tart melts claim to provides up to 8 hours of fragrance but personally I find they last sooooo much longer, I can literally have the wax tarts burning in my tart burner for weeks and they still fragrance the entire house which is amazing and such great value for money considering they only set you back £1.49 each.

I actually picked up another set of these Yankee Candle Halloween Tarts to giveaway on Twitter, if you'd like to enter just retweet my pinned tweet HERE and follow me! The giveaway will be UK only and will be open for two weeks, so if you win you'll get them in time for Halloween!
