Hi while i collect rare yankee candles i have noticed alot in the past 12 months the ones i have bought for burning barely have any smell to them.
i am after knowing what strong candles i can buy to burn without breaking the bank.
i love to have my whole apartment smelling nice but the yankees are just not doing it anymore.

When the candle is cold and unlit it's a solid. How can oil and fragrance "sink" through them? I could understand if it was say a packet of scented wipes, I store them upside down so that every time I take a wipe out, it's damp. But I don't get this in solid wax? If you turn it upside down for a few hours, do you end up with a layer of perfume oil on the top when you turn it back up? Also, If it's cold cold, wax would be harder, and if its hot weather it would be much softer so it would be a different make up?

It was advice taken from Yankee candles official facebook forum so I guess they know what they're talking about. It's only for the 1st burn and to give a stronger scent from burning straight away. I can't comment on the science of it but people have reported that it works.
Lot's of weird tricks you can do with these candles like wrapping tinfoil around the outside of the jar to save a candle after tunnelling but I guess it also depends on the size of the candles, for the 22oz ones they take a long time to completely melt the top layer so are more prone to this.
thankyou but they are a little on the expensive side.i had just discovered kringle candles but they have also closed down.
i will take a look at these thankyou how would you compare there strengh with yankee?
Just wondering why?
Hmm difficult to compare but you can choose more tablets if you want a stronger fragrance. Because it's a change from Yankee smell I t makes the Yankees fresh again when we do go back to using them
The scented oils drop to the bottom of the candle after a while, turning the candle upside down for a while allows the oil and fragrance to run through the whole of the candle.
never heard of this but would make alot of sense.
Thanks for the info.... I didn’t realise this, I'll tell her indoors and my girls then I guess they’ll get a more consistent aroma in their homes.
Best thing I did was get an electric tart burner and only put a bit of the tart in at a time as a whole one can be a bit strong but I'm able to leave it on while not in the house so it always smells nice for me coming home
