Yankee Candle "Apple Pumpkin"

Now that the days are undoubtedly getting more chilly and the evenings are rapidly becoming darker I find myself squirreling away those fresher candle scents ready for next spring and exchanging them for a host of welcoming and cosy fragrances to burn around the house. 

Yankee Candle's "Apple Pumpkin"* is a classic yet genius mix of two favourite autumnal scents. The sweet yet earthy notes of orange pumpkin combined with spiced apple and a hint of clove offer a scent that I can only liken to the very definition of autumn in a jar. It's really quite special and one that I'll be reaching for over and over during the next couple of months for sure!

The warm, inviting and delicately sweet fragrance of Apple Pumpkin will have visitors thinking you've just baked something delicious when they step into your home! 
The scent is amazingly mouthwatering yet not overpowering or strong. The delicately spiced apple notes offer just the right amount of sweetness to fill your home with the most delightful aroma. 

I'm a real fan of the jar design for this fragrance too. The label is spot on and the sumptuous, rich colour of the wax is absolutely delectable!

Looking at the wax through the glass, you can see how the Yankee Candle fragrance oils permeate the wax the whole way down the jar right down to the bottom. This is one of the main reasons I trust them as a brand to fragrance my home. It doesn't matter if I'm lighting a candle for the first time of I'm down to the last inch in a jar, I'll always get the same quality scent and the same scent experience the whole way through. Something you just don't get with a lot of candle brands! 

Yankee Candle large Housewarmer jar candles provide 110 to 150 hours of enjoyment and retail for £19.99 on the Yankee Candle website

Other scents currently available as part of the 'autumn harvest' collection on the special appearances section of the Yankee Candle website include:

Grapevine & Oak
The naturally appealing, full-bodied aroma of crisp grapes, citrus and oak.

Cinnamon Appleberry
The welcoming aroma of tart apples and sugary berries laced with cinnamon.

Pomegranate Cider
An autumn treat . . . tart pomegranate juice with sweet vanilla and spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves.

An autumn classic. The rich hues of the harvest - with golden spices softened and smoothed by the addition of sweet autumn fruits and musk - come together in an inviting blend. Cinnamon, cloves and musk, with a hint of sweet apples and pumpkin, make for a recipe that makes any home instantly cosy and welcoming.

These are all available for a limited time only so make sure you get your favourite now before they disappear again. I quite like the sound of Harvest, I think a jar of that might work it's way into my basket very soon!

What Yankee Candle scents have you been burning recently?
