Yankee Candle have recently launched lots of new scents for Spring and Summer 2015 form beachy scents to sweet bakery scents so of course being the Yankee Candle lover that I am I just had to go and stock up. I quickly made my way over to my local garden centre which has a huge range of Yankee Candle's and found their NEW Cafe Culture Collection, I picked up a few candles from the collection which I'll be reviewing over the next couple of weeks but today I have Pain Au Raisin (£1.80) to review for you all.
Pain Au Raisin is described as having a tantalising aroma of cognac soaked raisins that are baked in buttery vanilla dough and sprinkled with cinnamon, mm mm now that sounds like a scent I'd actually love to eat he he. Personally for me Pain Au Raisin smells just like a bakery or that home made cakes in the oven smell, it's sweet, sugary, buttery with a light kick of spice that comes from the cinnamon and just smells absolutely delicious, it's definitely going to be a hit with those who have a sweet tooth like myself that's for sure. I must admit it's quite a strange scent to release for Spring/Summer as I think it suits more autumnal days because of that slight spiciness that it has running through it, that being said if you like a sweet, sugary scent like I do then it's fine to burn all year round.
All the Yankee Candle votive/samplers claim to provides up to 15 hours of fragrance but personally I've found that Pain Au Raisin has lasted me so much longer because it kicks off a rather strong scent, I only have to have Pain Au Raisin lit for a couple hours and that's enough to fragrance my entire house which is amazing and such great value.
You can find the entire Cafe Culture Collection on the Yankee Candle Website with prices starting from £1.49 to £19.99.
