I love candles and one day I'll own one of the very popular and very expensive Diptique choices available but at the moment whilst I have to penny pinch I've fallen head over heels in love with Yankee Candle Tarts, which are not only completely affordable but come in a stunning array of different scents. 

There is something for everyone when it comes to Yankee Candle - whether you prefer fruity, spicy, floral, food or everything in between. 

Yankee Candle also release limited edition seasonal 'collections' of scents too. I knew the autumn collection was due to be released soon and, as luck would have it, as I popped into the shop to repurchase a few of my current favourite scents, the lovely lady allowed me to sniff the order that she was literally putting on the shelf from the deliveries that morning. I choose two scents from the new collection for Autumn that I really loved: Salted Caramel and Vanilla Chai.


Whilst I was browsing I thought I'd pick up two scents I hadn't tried yet from the permanent lines. I'm not sure why I haven't bothered to try them before but I thought I'd give them a whirl. They are Black Cherry and Paradise Spice.


I picked up some of my favourites too. If I love a scent I will always return to, usually because it becomes linked with a happy memory or because I've been complimented on it. I picked up Home Sweet Home, Honey Blossom and Garden Sweet Pea

  1. These all sound so good! Garden sweet pea is my favourite too x

  2. I absolutely adore the Yankee Candle Tarts! Such a great way to try out different scents before buying them in a jar version :)

    I buy all my wax tarts from eBay as you can literally buy 10 for just under a tenner with free P+P :) xo

  3. Garden Sweet Pea is so lovely xx

  4. I haven't tried any of the ones you have above. The salted caramel one sounds lush though and the garden sweet pea - might have to go and have a smell of those ones, if I can find em! I usually buy the samplers, so I might have a try of the tarts next time. What holder do you use, maybe you could tweet me a pic of it? @GemsGemz86
