Yankee Candles: Sweet Vanilla

Hi lovelies,

If you read my post on The Candle Factory tea lights {post can be found here} then you will remember me mentioning Yankee Candles and I have finally after smelling my friends and wishing I had one, finally gone out and brought some. I brought a pack of three from Asda for £3.00 and after trying to decide which one to try first went with the Sweet Vanilla.

I was quite excited to try these for myself, yes I am that sad I get excited about candles! After the kids had gone to bed I settled down in my pajamas, painted my nails and burnt my candle.
OMG....had I known it was going to be this good I would have got one a hell of a lot sooner! What have I been doing with my life that I haven't been buying these. 

First of all I love the fact that you can actually smell it as it's burning, which is something you don't tend to get with other candles if at all actually. The smell is beautiful it's a lovely well...sweet smelling vanilla. I am really pleased that it actually smells like what it's supposed to. 
The first think my boyfriend said when he walked in the room a bit later was "what's that smell?" so even he noticed and the fact he actually said something shows how good it is as he isn't to good with noticing things. 
The next morning we got up and we both noticed that you could smell it around the room so the scent has lasted a whole 12 hours at this point. It actually lasted 24 hours probably more if I hadn't lit it the next night as well. That is amazing!

I am so impressed with these candles and I'm a total convert. I am really looking forward to getting some autumn scents and I love Christmas so that is going to be great to see what they come out with. 

What is your favorite Yankee Candle scent? Let me know so I can try some more out.
