Yankee Candle Has Released Its Christmas Range And We Need Everything
If there's any brand to get us in the mood for Christmas in August, it's Yankee.
The candle brand are the kingpins of creating festive scents, evidenced in their yearly Christmas drops. And with 141 days until the big day, they've released four more delicious-smelling candles for us to get our hands on.
Evergreen Mist, After Sledding, Candlelit Cabin and Pomegranate Fizz have been added to their offering, and the names alone are giving us ALL the festive feels.
All candles cost £23.99 for the signature large jar candle, £1.99 for the 49g votive candle and £1.79 for the 22g wax melt.
First up is 'Evergreen Mist', described as "peaceful walk through snow-carpeted evergreen forest as the morning sun creates swirls or bracing mist." Oh wow.
Give the candle a sniff and your initial impression (the top note) will fill your nose with Douglas fir, orange zest and forest air, while the body of the scent (the middle note) will give you evergreen bark and hints of eucalyptus. Finally, for the final impression (the base), you'll note balsam, vanilla and pine.
How good does that sound?
Next is 'After Sledging', summed up as "The scent of tempting treats - sweet maple, baking spices and vanilla bean - offers a warm welcome after a day of winter fun."
Burn this baby and you'll get top notes of maple, toffee, cinnamon, and middle notes of salted caramel brûlée and nutmeg.

Your base notes will be made up of vanilla bean and maple drizzle. This is is surely the most delicious of the collection.
Another new offering is 'Candlelit Cabin', which is supposed to make you think of "The warm glow of candlelight that welcomes you to a winter retreat - rustic pine, warm spices and earthy notes fill the air." Take us there NOW.
Give this a whiff and you'll be hit with top notes of rhubarb, black peppercorn, and apple, while a deeper smell with give you middle notes of nutmeg, magnolia and hazelnut.
Finally, 'Pomegranate Fizz' is based on a favourite Christmas tipple. "A sparkling holday drink - sweet pomegranate mingles with fresh citrus and cranberry - cheers!," reads the description.
Burn this and you'll be hit with top notes of cranberry, sparkling pomegranate, fresh lime, festive orange and mid notes of juniper berry, rosemary and gin. You final impression will be of agave syrup and a fruity musk. If we could drink this candle we would.
