New Yankee Candle!

Hey everyone!

As some of you may know, I am in love with scented candles! I recently picked up a new scent that I've never had before, but completely fell in love with. It's "Soft Blanket" by Yankee Candle, which I think is a perfect candle for bedrooms or bathrooms because it's so subtle :) And of course I find the teddy bear label utterly adorable, haha.

Yankee Candle describes Soft Blanket as "a lullaby of clean citrus, luxurious vanilla, and warm amber", with top notes of bergamot, citrus, and blackberry, middle notes of cashmere vanilla, powdery rose, and tobacco flower, and a base note of amber, cocoa, and musk. But to be honest I think it smells like a combination of baby powder and clean laundry, with a very light hint of vanilla, which makes me feel extremely relaxed and cozy. I am a huge fan of powdery perfumes (e.g. Chloé, Chanel no 5 eau premiere, Narciso Rodriguez poudrée, or Kenzo Flower), so if you're into powdery scents as well, I highly recommend you to try out this candle!

I bought the medium pillar size, which has a burn time of 80 to 110 hours. I have purchased a few of the jar candles in the past, which is probably Yankee Candle's most famous packaging, but I actually quite like this pillar design! I think it looks quite nice :)

What kind of perfumes, or scented candles do you like?


  1. it does look lovely, I'm actually currently using Avon's bodyspray with vanilla and blackberry fragrance

  2. My wife got a strawberry one during a christmas game last year

  3. I love Yankee Candles but haven't bought one in awhile. Thanks for the heads up about this scent, Sharon, and I'm loving the pillar design as well.
    PS My allt-time fave candle scent is Sweater Weather by Bath and Body Works, but they don't make it anymore....sigh....

  4. These candles are just sooo cute, I want one so badly *.*

  6. Soft Blanket sounds like a lovely candle!

  7. I'm not a candle type of person, but I noticed one of my sister-in-laws often has lighted scented candles when we go to her house, and I bought her a gold one from John Lewis for Christmas but I can't remember what type it was!

  8. Thanks for the comment and visit to my blog :)
