Yankee Candle "Sweet Dreams" Swirl....

Once the baby is tucked up in bed our evenings are usually a blur of catching up on each others day, walking the dog, cleaning, washing, catching up on paperwork and getting ready for the next day. Admittedly it can be hard to find the time to wind down before bed but we do try our hardest, even if its just 10-20 minutes each day!

I am a huge fan of using scent to help create a relaxing atmosphere and the Yankee Candle "Sweet Dreams" medium swirl jar candle* is amazing for creating that perfect bedtime scent as the evening quickly turns into night.

Sweet Dreams contains a unique combination of two favourite true-to-life Yankee Candle scents "Lavender Vanilla" and "Soft Blanket" which complement each other beautifully. If you haven't tried either of these scents before, Lavender Vanilla is a gorgeous blend of fresh lavender and warm vanilla with hints of musk and bergamot whilst Soft Blanket is a fantasy fragrance of clean citrus, luxurious vanilla and warm amber. I can assure you that these scents are utterly beautiful on their own so together they are an absolute dream!

Once lit, Sweet Dreams fills the room with a delightful sweet and tranquil aroma that's just perfect as a background scent in the bedroom or during bath time. The scent is calming and isn't at all overpowering, it is such a delight to burn.
Sweet hints of lavender and vanilla are evident but are balanced with the clean and warming notes of Soft Blanket. It's a truly comforting fragrance and it would be a great candle to light on those cold winter evenings!

I have used the swirl candles a few times before and visually, I love the way the wax is poured into the jar. My husband likens the appearance of these candles to old fashioned sweet shop jars and I can see where he's coming from! Definitely one to keep out on display in the bedroom I think!

Sweet Dreams is currently available to buy exclusively online at for the price of £16.99.
