Hello lovelies! I'm sorry to use the c word so early but lets just get it out of the way. Christmas. There, I've said it! Some people like to do their Christmas shopping early so I thought I'd post this in advance for all you early birds. I'm not going to lie, I'm a last minute shopper ... as in Christmas Eve although I'm hoping to be a little more prepared this time round (fingers crossed). Since trying my first non chocolate related advent calendar last year, I'm always on the look out for a new one to try.

It was like Christmas came early when I was kindly sent the Yankee Candle Carousel Advent Calendar* to have a sniff of. The carousel advent calendar is new to Yankee Candle and contains a mix of votives and tealights with a few new festive scents thrown into the mix.

Warning! Spoilers ahead although I won't tell you what order they come in as I can't remember myself!

Once Christmas comes, I fill every corner, table, shelf (you name it) with Yankee Candles. I'm OBSESSED. I know I'm not the only one either. Yankee Candle are renowned for bringing true to life scents straight into our homes. Scents not only help us to set the mood but they can also remind us of times past which make Yankee candle so special to many. Let's have a peak inside shall we?

The scents included in the tea light selection are: Candy Cane Lane, Icicles, Spiced Orange, Snowflake Cookie and Winter Glow.

The scents included in the votive selection are: Berry Trifle, Bundle Up, Cosy By The Fire and Winter Glow.

I just love the tradition of burning a candle for each day of advent. I obviously had a good sniff of all the candles and I have to say that Cosy By The Fire is my favourite out of the set. It smells ... well, just like sitting by an open fire and I can't wait to burn it! This advent calendar retails at £31.99 which isn't too bad compared to some of the advent calendars I've seen around. Now I guess it's time for me to put the Christmas decorations back away however tempting it is to leave them out...

Have you tried any Yankee Candle Advent Calendars before? If not, what's your favourite calendar?

  1. I've never had a yankee candle advent calendar but this cute carousel has been all over my bloglovin feed recently and it is making me want one even more! Berry Trifle particularly sounds delicious, I might have to treat myself to one of these this year!♥

    1. Yankee Candle have actually just brought out an electric tart burner so that there is no flame. That might be a better alternative. The tarts are a lot stronger than the jars too!

  3. You're so lucky to have been sent this Sophie, it looks beautiful (and I can imagine it smells fab too!).
    I'm currently in love with the 'Christmas Cookie' candle by Yankee Candles, it's so buttery and sweet scented!
    Lovely post : )

  4. This looks like a fab christmas present or stocking filler for a yankee candle fanatic! I was actually in a Yankee Candle store at the weekend and I must say, I am soooo picky when it comes to scents (working in Lush would probably drive me mad!) haha, but that aside, they do have some gorgeous scents in store for the christmas season! My favourites are christmas cookie and candle cane lane! I love anything with a sweet/sugary scent! I must try out the berry trifle scent that you've mentioned, it sounds right up my street!

    Fab post Sophie and thanks for sharing! xx

  9. This looks and sounds amazing. I'm so jealous! When I saw your Instagram photo I felt an urge to crack out one of my Christmas Yankee Candles! I have candles burning constantly anyway but I'm refrained from the festive scents so far, tonight though I'm sat next to my Merry Marshmallow one haha. Love the sound of the smells included in the calendar.

  49. Oh my gosh this seriously sounds so much better than Chocolate! Burning a candle each day of advent truly goes alongside the Christmas traditions too. I might have to hint at this one to the other half, although I'm keen on the look of some of the nail polish calendars too

  53. I actually saw a yankee candle advent calendar at the bookstore last week and was debating whether or not to get it. A friend bought me 2 small tea light yankee candles for my birthday but they didn't really end up releasing the fragrance like I expected and sort of melted into a mess, so I am not sure I would invest in the calendar for that reason, but still it is great to get such a multitude of different fragrances.

    1. Oh no! I've been burning the tea lights and I was surprised at how much fragrance came off them. Usually it's hard to smell them especially with being so small but I'm pleased so far. If you want something that has a scent you can smell, try the wax tartlets. They're my favourites
