Lighter days, flowers, greenery, new life, open windows, new adventures.... Oh spring, you're so close I can almost see you just around the corner! I always see the beginning of spring as a perfect time to clear out the old and make plans for new adventures, try out new things and rejuvenate those energy levels.
Yankee Candle have recently released a brand new range of scented candles that inspire the gentle awakening of springtime with a sense of calm, mindfulness and optimism. The fragrances are carefully crafted and the resulting products are modern, clean and fresh.
I'm thrilled to be able to share the My Serenity 3 Small Jar Candle Tin gift set with you today, it's the perfect way to welcome spring into the home and would make a lovely gift for someone special (if you can bear to part with it, that is!). The gift set features two of the newest fragrances alongside an old favourite in the ever popular small signature classic jar format.
The candles come in a modern white hinged tin with a simple mandala pattern on the outside. The tin is a perfect size to stash those smaller Yankee Candle votive candles and wax melts in once you're done.
The three candles you'll find inside are My Serenity, Midnight Jasmine and Peony. An inspired blend of floral and fresh scents, perfect for this time of year.
A seductively lush perfume of water jasmine, sweet honeysuckle, neroli, and mandarin blossom.
I was super happy to see Midnight Jasmine included in this set. It's certainly not a new scent but it is most definitely a firm favourite of mine. It's a fragrance that is at home at any time of day, in most situations. I love it! Midnight Jasmine is a true floral scent with a perfect throw. It's crisp and fresh yet superbly relaxing. The label design and clean white wax lend themselves perfectly to this gorgeous and seductive scent.
"The rich scent of Spring's most coveted bloom - the peony - entices with notes of bright sweetness"
Peonies are one of my favourite flowers so as you can imagine, I was very excited to try out this scent. The delicate pink wax, the super feminine label... I love everything about this candle!
Peony has a good strong throw of scent but it doesn't overpower at all. I usually tread carefully with floral scents as sometimes they can smell a bit synthetic or like 'old lady' perfume but I find the scent of Peony very fresh, delicate and feminine. It's a really beautiful fragrance!
"The definition of calm - warm pear and orange mingle with tropical flowers and soft musk"
Finally, we have My Serenity which is my favourite scent from this set without a doubt. The candle has an amazing scent throw, I can smell this all over the house when we have it lit. It's calming and very 'warm'. If you're a fan of Pink Sands then I can assure you that this is pretty much the same scent. Of course, the wax is a different colour though! I am such a fan of this My Serenity, everything about it is calm and relaxing. Very tempted to buy a large jar of this!
The My Serenity 3 Small Jar Candle Tin gift set retails for £22.99 and is available on the Yankee Candle website. Each candle will give you 25-40 hours of fragrance.
