Quite a while back I bought a selection of Simply Home Yankee Candles from Asda, I'm not really sure what the difference is between the original Yankee Candles and the Simply Home range is to be honest, they seem to be a bit cheaper in price which is always good and have a different range of gorgeous scent's to choose from and they seem to burn just as well so the mind boggles he he. Anyway since the festive season is now upon us I thought it would be the perfect time to review my favourite candle at the moment 'Christmas Treats', I've actually been burning the large jar of this and have recently finished it but I stocked up on few votive's too because I love it that much he he.
Christmas Treats (£1.00) is described as 'everybodys favourite, irresistible buttery rich vanilla cookies topped with sweet sugar sprinkles' and that is pretty much on point to be honest. To me Christmas Treats smells just like a combination of sweet white chocolate, vanilla frosting and shortbread, and it takes all my strength not to eat it! If your a fan of Yankee Candles original Christmas Cookie scent then you'll love Christmas Treats because they basically smell identical, the sweetness and vanilla really comes through but you also get a bakery scent come through too as if you where actually baking sugar cookies, it's absolutely delicious! The scent throw is medium, it's definitely not overpowering but fills the house with it's gorgeous scent very quickly and really lingers when blown out, I personally don't find Christmas Treats sickly what so ever but I am a huge fan of the sweet, sugary scents.
All the Yankee Candle votive/samplers claim to provide up to 15 hours of fragrance and Christmas Treats certainly always lasts me really well, I think because the scent really lingers and fills the entire house you don't have to keep it alight for so long so you can certainly get a good few uses out of it that's for sure.
Whats your favourites Christmassy Candle scent beaut's? I'd love to know!
