New Yankee Candle: Pain au Raisin

I love burning candles, along with practically every woman I know. There’s nothing more relaxing than a hot bath/empty house/early night, especially when you’ve got a few candles lit. 

I think some of my favourite candles are Yankee Candles. They are just so highly scented and long lasting, I’ve always got 2 or 3 nearby.

This candle is like stepping into a French Patisserie on a Saturday morning. The lightly spiced vanilla scents makes my mouth water and crave a cinnamon bun, with a slight Brandy undertone that adds a richness that reminds me of Brandy butter on a pudding!

I’ve had this sitting in my downstairs bathroom for around a week now, just whilst I finish my current candle (White Gardinia, FYI) and it smells DIVINE. It’s not too overpowering, but is strong enough to fill the room.

I don’t usually go for the sweeter scented candles, as I’m all about those fresh scents, but brought this on a whim as it was on sale, and I’m really glad I did. I’ll definitely be looking at the rest of the collection!
