sheffield, parson cross store

saw these yesterday but still can't justify spending a tenner on a candle

Are these the 'simply home' type of Yankee candle?

£7.99 here if it helps anyone:-

Cold from me. Inferior Simply Home ones


Yankee candle simply home are not inferior they are just a different line for super markets. The jars Hold less wax and are a different shape to fit in with decor BUT USE THE SAME QUAILTY WAX, FRAGRANCE OILS AND WICKS AS YANKEE CANDLE HOUSE WARMER JARS !!!

There is nothing inferor about them and a lot of the simply home fragrances are re packaged popular candles such as

SH toasted marshmallow = YC fiireside treats
SH vanilla frosting = YC vanilla cupcake
SH Bermuda Beach = YC pink sands
SH cranberry zest = YC mandarin and cranberry
SH Christmas baking = YC snowflake cookies

You get the idea But they are not inferior.

Simply home is now discontinued and has been replaced with Home Insperation by Yankee Candle to keep in linewith the US American Home collection.

Sorry I disagree, the amount of oils is different and the simply home ones smell for about half an hour and then lose their smell. Each to their own though, I personally wouldnt take them for free.

I've had that happen with all Yankee candles including their house warmer jars so it's not a simply home less fragrance oil issue, it's a Yankee candle issue in general.
Yankee candle house warmers and simply home are poured from the same vats, using the same wax, using the fragrance oils in the same ratios from the same fragrance oil suppliers the only difference is the jar shape trust me.
Yankee candle has had throw issues with all wax products since 2013 and there are ways to find good throwers regardless of being a simply home, house warmer or new home inperation range but it takes time to look though all the candles find ones that are not dry in the jar and break the wax seal (top layer of hard wax) to smell if the wax under the seal.
I never just buy a Yankee candle off the shelf I go through them all until I find one I'm happy with and doing this 8/10 are good including Simply Home jars.

It's a pain in the ass but honestly you will find that the simply home are a good as the house warmer jars, failing that use tarts as all tarts are strong including all simply home !!!

As I said, each to their own. I wont find that simply home are as good as I have tried them numerous times, I do use tarts already and large jars.

I have bought a lot of Yankee candles in the past and recently the large ones tunnel. I now prefer the large pillar or these as they don't seem to tunnel. not sure if it's the shape of the jars. but heat from me

I used to have issues with large jars (and some medium jars) not melting to the edge. This started in about 2013 as Yankee either changed the wax or the formulation of the wax as it became more dry and seems slightly harder. The jars I have from before 2013 seem slightly softer and glisten on the top rather than be hard and shiny.
Either way the best way to fix this is to get a candle hurricane vase that you can fit the large jars in.
You fill the bottom with some decorative stones or sand to a point where when the jar is placed in the hurricane the top is 3-4 cm below the top.
When you burn the jars place them in the hurricane and use an illuma lid and you will find not only do they pool out quicker but they no longer tunnel and the wax pool will be deeper giving a bigger scent throw.

Hurricane jars cans be bought in home bargains starting at £2.99
Give them a go and you will find they solve most issues with Yankee candles.

Yankee candle Pillar jars will pool out faster as they have a smaller jar diamater and slightly different wax formulation.
All white pillars from YC are 100% paraffin wax just like the regular jars but the coloured pillars are a paraffin/soy blend 80/20 the same as in the new scenterpiece melt cups.
This paraffin/soy blend helps the pillars pool out quickly (no more that 1 hour 30 mins) and give a nice deep wax pool.

The reason the White pillars are still 100% paraffin is because the addition of the soy wax give the blend a dirty off white tint and Yankee candle don't like the look of it.
