I like Yankee but only certain smells :).

Some nice ones here pricey but good quality

Try kringle or village candles

i tell ya what i have started using it lampe berger got recommended it and i have never looked back fills the house in 5 mins

I have no problems with Yankee Candles. Have some going as I type. Aways make the room smell lovely. If you are not sure you can get samplers in Tesco or Asda for fairly cheap & see what you think that way.



Woodwick candles are lovely and they crackle when they burn.

Kringle smell nice but I still get yankee candles the fragrance doesn't stay long as before but still smell nice

I think the Yankee wax tart burners are better than the candles. The smell is more intense.

woodwick are good but not all of them crackle, i like the berry sorbet

Chesapeake Bay Candle

I use Yankee & village candles. I prefer to use a tart burner, you get to change the fragrance found more often. Yesterday I discovered Our Own Candle Company in a shop in Kingston, I got a couple of wax tarts to try and it was very nice I used the Banana Nut Bread one last night.

Woodwick - fantastic candles, buy the cradle one for christmas.

Jelly belly, they smell beaut! And I find em strong smelling

DO NOT get the samplers from Asda. They are labeled Yankee but for some bizarre reason smell no where near as strong as the Yankee small, medium and large jars you get. The labels also look slightly different!

I've never had a problem with buying direct from the Yankee store. I tend to use the same scents though. Can't beat the vanilla lime scent!

Not sure why but I've had the same scents from Tesco/Asda as well as direct from Yankee & they smell & look exactly the same. Never had a problem.

I've got the Kringle Candle Royal Cherries Apothecary Jar Candle and it's really nice, but I only bought it as a Xmas treat. Normally I buy £1 shop ones as I'm too tight!!

Parks candles are gorgeous , quite pricey , but I managed to get a tumbler sized one for £7 in tkmaxx , usually more expensive. Fragrance v intense.
I also like Yankee candle midnight jasmine being my favourite , strong and intense smell.
