Yankee Candle Honey & Spice and Leaf Mosaic Large Shade

Mother's Day was a good one for me this year. Having given birth to Freddie 2 weeks earlier, it meant it was that extra bit special. My babies (& step children) were extremely kind with their gifts this year (thanks Daddy, lol) and these 2 beauties are among the pressies I received. 

My Hubby Martin and I are massive candle lovers, with Yankee Candles being our absolute faves. We have an independent Yankee Candle stockist in our local village who we pay a visit to every few months when we run out of wax tarts and need to stock up. We usually just use the tarts as we have 2 burners on the go most nights in the house, but every now and again we like to get a jar, especially if we've found a tart we really like or if it's for a special treat or a gift.

Honey & Spice is a scent I don't think I'd ever sniffed. Martin chose this purely on what he thinks I'd like, and he did well! It's a sweet scent, but not sickly sweet, as the spice counteracts it to create a warm infusion of sweet and spice that's almost good enough to eat. Before I sniffed it I assumed it'd be a really strong, Autumn/Winter spicy kind of fragrance, but since burning it I reckon I'd burn it all year round. It's such a lovely, homely scent without being overpowering. It's not one of the strongest Yankees I've had, but to me that's a good thing as sometimes I find if they're too strong I end up getting a headache. 

What they say;
"Golden nectar and sugar cane mingle with cinnamon stick and cocoa to create this gourmand concoction".
Certainly one of my favourite scents to date and one I'll definitely consider repurchasing, maybe in tart form next time so I don't sicken myself off it.

Whilst I'm here, I also wanted to show you the beautiful Yankee accessory I received with my gifts this Mother's Day.

Yankee Candle Leaf Mosaic Large Shade

Yankee Candle Leaf Mosaic Large Shade 1

The Yankee Candle Leaf Mosaic Large Shade is the most wonderful addition to finish off a Yankee Candle. The Large Shades will fit both large and medium jars and look utterly adorable sitting on top of the jar to make it look more like a little lamp when the candle is lit.
"Designed exclusively for Yankee Candle, this attractive piece from our Mosaic accessory collection is anything but ordinary. It instantly elevates the look of any room with a dark golden mosaic effect and leaf design. With high quality detail and superbly hand finished. It instantly elevates the look of any room while also complementing a wide range of our fragrances".
The colours of this particular shade are absolutely stunning and compliment the colours in our living room perfectly, as well as the colours in the Honey & Spice candle.

The hubby did well!
