It’s true what they say, once you’ve tried a Yankee candle you’re hooked. I know I certainly am, when I go home in the evenings the first thing I do is light a Yankee candle, my current favourite being Black Cherry with its yummy fruity scent, I love it so much I currently have the black cherry diffuser in my bathroom this means the gorgeous scent hits me as soon as I open the bathroom door.
Every month in store we have a fragrance of the month in which we offer 25% discount off the RRP, this makes for a very large saving and is a great way to top up on your favourite Yankee scents, we’re hoping to bring the fragrance of the month offer to our website very soon,
If you are ever passing through the village of Birstall, Leicester please do pop in and take a look at our ever growing range of Yankee candle fragrances.
A little bit of information about Yankee Candle
From Humble Beginnings to America’s favourite premium brand of candle
It started in December 1969. Michael Kitteredge was sixteen, and had a big problem with just days to go before Christmas, and with very little money he tried to think of gift ideas when inspiration struck. He gathered up his childhood crayons and found an empty milk container. Melting them in a pot on the kitchen stove, he poured the hot liquid into the carton and added a wick "borrowed" from a candle in the dining room. Also adding the broken bits of wax from that ill-fated dinner candle. Several hours later, his first candle sat proudly on the kitchen table.
A visiting neighbour admired it and asked if he’d sell it to her. With the, money she paid him he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom as a Christmas gift, and another to sell. This was the beginning of Yankee Candle
Today, with over 100 fragrances, Yankee Candle offers the world's largest and most compelling selection of candle and home fragrance scents that are loved the world over.
The Ultimate Fragrance Experience
Authentic. True-to-life. Bold. Long-lasting. Made with fragrance extracts and real essential oils, Yankee scents are the standard by which all other fragrances are judged. Developed to take you on a journey to the familiar and unfamiliar, the known and the unknown, whether real or imagined, these scents span a range of fragrance categories, including specific fruits and flowers, fresh, clean and outdoor types, and festive fragrances that enhance the holiday season. These fragrances also encompass new, trendy or trend forward scents and concepts interspersed among classic favourites.
With every fragrance introduced, their reputation is on the line. It is not enough for a Yankee® fragrance to be as good as its competitors' scents. It must be better, because it's what you expect of them... and what they expect of themselves. Each fragrance has to possess the realism, accuracy and pleasantness of the true flower, food, fruit, place, or experience that inspired it. This is the fragrance experience that has made Yankee Candle® the benchmark for quality in the candle world.
