Yankee Candle | Black Plum Blossom

Lets be honest shall we, all bloggers love a fragranced candle. I tried so hard to avoid the blogger hype on Yankee Candles, but eventually I succumb to the hype and treat myself to two candles, you can see the review of them here, and how amazing I think they actually are. I was asked if I would like to try one of their new fragrance ranges and when I received a large candle jar of black plum blossom in the post I was pleasantly surprised. If I was out and about having a casual shop and a browse of their collection, I really don't think I would be taken aback by this particular fragrance. I'm not a fan of plums so that would put me off straight away, and so would the colour purple, because it isn't exactly my favourite colour. 

I would be completely wrong to avoid this jar. I think I was under the misconception that it would actually smell like plums, but it's actually a flower, more suited to the Asian regions. Well I was even happier when I found out about that because we all know how much I adore anything related to the Far East. The fragrance is of black plum blossom, with a hint of white musk and vanilla. I must admit this is absolutely gorgeous and I really wanted to eat the candle as soon as I opened the jar! With this being a large jar you can get up to 150 hours of burn time, all for just £19.99. For some reason, yet again, I had this misconception that Yankee Candles only lasted a few hours! Oh and also when the wax has melted, you can also use the jar for storing bits and pieces, like cosmetics brushes and make up. Dual purpose, I like it more. 

Since opening the candle I've had it on for the majority of the afternoon, something like 5 hours, and I'm totally in love. I thought this would be fairly overpowering but it just leaves enough fragrance to make you feel comfortable without being unable to breathe, something which is a disaster in my Asthmatic home! I still have my eye on their Easter collection, white chocolate bunnies and bunny cake.

  1. This sounds like such a lovely scent! I love Yankee Candles and I really want to invest in a big one because they're such good value for money, it's just the initial 'investment' that always puts me off and I end up buying the smaller ones...
