Yankee Candles Cranberry Ice


As all of you know this first week of the new year has been a cold one. Today I'm currently sat here with a blanket around me, hot water bottle on lap with a cup of tea to my side. On my travels as I'm away with friends for a few days. So as I sit here, I am feeling pretty blissful shall we say.

What could possibly make my morning any better though? of course it has to be using my lovely Yankee Candles to leave the air smelling beautiful.

  • Cranberry Ice
  • x2 Christmas Cookie
  • x1 Christmas Eve

When trying to keep warm during the winter months, candles have always been one of my essentials. It warms up the room and leaves the most delightful smell. But usually I have always gone for whichever I come across in stores, never have I owned a Yankee Candle.
Yes, those words really did just leave my mouth. I don't really count the advent calendar I had as a true experience of this brand, with them only being such small candles.

I finally got my hands on my all time favourite, Cranberry Ice. I've smelt it a million and ones times in the store before but never actually got round to picking one up.

What I love about this brand, is how long the candles last. You can burn these for weeks and still have the same delightful smell on day one. The three smaller ones maybe not quite so long but they still smell absolutely amazing, especially the Christmas cookie.


If you are looking for a new scent to try, this will be my number one recommendation alongside Peony. You can thank me later!

  1. I've never smelt the Cranberry Ice one but it sounds lovely. I do have some Yankee Candle wax melts. I cut them in half and each half lasts for so long. Currently got the Christmas Cookie one in my wax melter and it's definitely one of my faves! x

    1. No way! The advent calendar was amazing wasn't it. Really sets you up for Winter and keeping warm.

      I have never come across Sweet Apple, not even sure how that's possible! I will be changing this promptly!

  6. I must be the only person that hasn't tried Yankee Candle! The name of this candle though makes me want to try it. It sounds perfect, I might have to see if I can get my hands on it.

    1. Don't worry it wasn't until two months ago I hadn't either. It only takes one to fall in love with this brand!

  7. You're a girl after my own heart!
    I was exactly the same as you with loving smelling Yankee Candles but never biting the bullet and actually buying one until my best pal bought me one for my birthday last year. That was back in April and I've burnt it so much since and it still has a third left in it!
    I also got Christmas Eve for Christmas and it is my favourite scent of all time I think!!
    I definitely need to give Cranberry Ice a sniff as it sounds lovely.
