My first Yankee Candle haul

Hello sweet ladies!! How are you doing? I hope everything is doing good for you and that you're all happy.

Today I'm soooooooo glad cuz I finally got my Yankee Candle package. This is my first YC haul. Ok, it's been months since I noticed that some bloggers talked about these, but I didn't really pay attention to it.

But two weeks ago, I read a (one more) blog post mentionning these candles and I decided to check out what was all the fuss about. (Sammakeupaddict, si tu passes par là, c'est toi ma belle qui m'a fait céder à ces bougies! Merci beaucoup, Bises.)

And OMG!!!!! I discovered that they've got an online French store and tons and tons of fragrances!!!! I'm addicted to fragrance and obsessed with each room of my house smelling good and having a different scent. I've been looking for the perfect scent for my bedroom for months buying ikea and drusgstore candles, but never finding the one that I really wanted. So I was like in heaven seeing all the variety they have.

Here is what I picked up:

- Beach flower: a flowery, fresh scent. I like it. It's burning right now. The fragrance is really nice and it spreads well in my bedroom.

- Sandalwood-Vanilla: it's a strong, wooden, manly fragrance. I honestly can't smell any vanilla scent in it. If you like manly scents, you'll love this one.

- Cherry Blossom: a light, flowery, feminine scent. I think it's good for a bedroom or for a place in which you'd like a soft fragrance.

- Wedding Day: a flowery scent, with a hint of wooden fragrance. I'll have to burn it to make my opinion fo it, because I just don't know if I like it or not.

- Midnight Jasmine: a heavy jasmine scent. This is exactly the jasmine fragrance that I do NOT like! There are actually two "scents" for jasmine and this one, I just don't like it. It's overwhelming and heavy. I'll give it a try anyway.

I've already planned another order. I'm impatient to place it.

What about you girls? Do you like Yankee Candles? What is your favorite fragrance?


  1. I have the cinnamon one which was a limited edition one for Christmas! It's sooo good if you're into cinnamon! I love the scent, and the candle takes quite a long time to burn!

    1. I love cinnamon but for Christmas time only. I'm gonna pick some cinnamon/spice scented in October so I can have them for Thanksgiving and Xmas.
      And you're right, these candles DO take quite a long time to burn! I'm really impressed.

  2. Omg do i see Cherry Blossom?
    That has got to be the best scent.

    I have awarded you with a Liebster Blog Award.

  4. j'ai envie de faire une commande mais graaave! lol
    surtout le vanille cupcake oh la la cuila jss sur qu'il est terrible!

    1. Coucou ma belle! Ca me fait plaisir de te voir par ici! Moi je n'ai pas résisté ce mois-ci, j'ai sacrifié le mu au profit des bougies.
      Le vanilla cupacake, c'est vrai que tout le monde le veut, mais moi je ne veux pas d'odeur sucrée ou de nourriture. Cela dit, je n'ai aucun doute qur le fait qu'il sente bon.
