Candle Review - Yankee Granny Smith

Candles are just one way I love to scent my home.
The mother-in-law is to blame for my love of Yankee Candles in particular - if cared for correctly, Yankee Candles can provide you with outstanding smells and memories to last forever (or until they retire their scent!)

Fresh apples, mmm… I was disappointed to see that 'Granny Smith' wasn't to be released in the UK, but fortunately some UK sites and stores had them in for a limited time only, with an offer of 20% off everything in store. How could we resist?!

The label itself suggests fresh, green, ripe Granny apples, while removing the lid, you are hit with the gorgeous scent of freshly cut apples in a cold breeze on a summers day. After trimming the wick, lighting this beauty, and placing on the illuma-lid, it didn't disappoint; the crisp freshness of the juiciest apples you can buy filled the room and the rest of the rooms in our small terrace house. The stunning glow of the deep pool on the candle was amazing and took a few hours, but there were no problems at all. We loved it so much that we took a trip back to the store and bought one at full price, before they were all gone for only the US to enjoy. At an average cost of £21.99 per large jar (623g) with around 110-150 hours of burning time, depending on the care and environment, this candle is well worth its money, in my opinion. It's one of the best Yankee Candle scents and throws I have had, and I use a lot of candles, especially the melange of Yankees I've used over the years to fragrance our home.
