A gorgeous Christmas gift set from Yankee Candle


If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know I'm Yankee Candle obsessed, so I'm very excited to share my thoughts on one of their new Christmas gift sets with you, which features some of their gorgeous new festive scents! Candles are some of my favourite gifts to receive at Christmas as you can never have too many, right? especially when they smell as good as these ones!

First things first, how beautiful does this gift box look? I love the box design, that slides open to reveal a drawer full of candles, which will basically be any candle lovers idea of heaven this Christmas! I'm a big fan of the golden star designs they've used on their festive gift sets this year, I think it looks super luxurious and very pretty. I think pretty packaging definitely makes a gift feel that extra bit special, especially with Christmas gifts and Yankee Candle have definitely nailed theirs this year, I'm a big fan!

I can tell this box is going to come in very handy after the candles are all used up too, it will be perfect for storing something like wax melts or even makeup in! So, this gorgeous box definitely doesn't have to go to waste.

The set contains 3 of their newest Christmas scented small jar candles:

Icy Blue Spruce
• Winter Wonder
• Frosty Gingerbread

All three of these scents are gorgeous, and super festive! None of them contain any very unusual and more out there notes, so I would say this one's definitely a safe present for buy for someone who's a little fussy scent wise. I really can't imagine anyone not liking these three myself! Scent throw wise, even though these are their small jars they have pretty decent scent throws, obviously not as strong as their larger jars but they do still fill a room with scent nicely, which I was pleasantly surprised to see as I hadn't tried any small jars from them before until these three!

Now, let's go into the scents in a bit more detail..

Fragrance notes:
Top: Fresh juniper, Spearmint leaves
Mid: Winter spruce, Black currant, Snow covered cedar
Base: Fir balsam, Powdery musk

First up is Icy Blue Spruce, which smells just like a Winter forest with the gorgeous balsam and Winter spruce notes. I would imagine Narnia smells just like this! It also has a lovely fresh fruity tone to the scent too which works perfectly amongst the other scents and makes a really nice change to some of the more traditional balsam based scents I've tried in the past. Perfect for making a room smell both festive and fresh! I'm a big fan, so if you're passing by a Yankee Candle store anytime soon definitely go in and have a test of this one yourself!

Fragrance notes:
Top: Frozen Lemon, Frost Air
Mid: Champagne Accord, Silver Balsam
Base: Vanilla, Sheer Musk

Next up is Winter Wonder, which is another lovely one, it's alot lighter than the other two candles fragrance wise so this one is perfect if you prefer lighter and less intense candles! The strongest notes that come across for me are the Vanilla and the balsam notes, so if you're a fan of those scents you will definitely like this candle too. It's a lovely soft blend that I really can't imagine anyone not liking, perfect for burning in any room in the house! I also love the colour and image printed onto this one, with the cute festive star design, it's sure to fit in perfectly with any colour theme this festive season.

Fragrance notes:
Top: Cinnamon, Vanilla frosting, Nutmeg
Mid: Ginger, Clove
Base: Gingerbread, Sugar

Lastly is Frosty Gingerbread which is my personal favourite of the three scents included as I'm gingerbread obsessed, who isn't? I love the addition of the Vanilla frosting notes, which makes it that extra bit special compared to other gingerbread scents I've tried in the past. The strongest notes for me are the gingerbread and spicy notes, which are some of my favourite scents at this time of year, perfect to help give a room that warm, cosy feel this Winter. So, I'm a big fan of this one and I'm very tempted to purchase the full size jar!

This set retails for £24.99 but is currently on offer for £19.99! The small jars from Yankee Candle retail for £8.99, so if you're good at maths unlike me then you'll be able to work out that this is great value for money, including that gorgeous packaging too! Even though it's great value, I know everyone has different budgets when it comes to Christmas, so if you're looking for something a little cheaper I definitely recommend having a browse on the Yankee Candle website at some of their other gift options as they have great options for everyones budgets this year!

I hope you enjoyed hearing abit more about this gift set, I'm still lusting over the gorgeous scents and gold festive packaging. It would definitely make the perfect Christmas gift for any candle lover, like myself! I think they've included such a great range of scents in the set, all so different from eachother but they definitely get my approval especially that delicious Frosty Gingerbread scent.
