Yankee Candle Vanilla Chai

My children (& step children) were very kind to me on Mother's Day this year! Yankee Candle Vanilla Chai (medium jar) was among the gifts I'd received. Vanilla scents are always one of my faves when it comes to candles and I was really chuffed and excited as I'd never burnt or even sniffed this particular scent. 

Vanilla Chai isn't your typical sickly vanilla scent. It's more spicy/cinnamon with hints of vanilla. I'd say, for me, these kinds of scents are more for Autumn/Winter. I can imagine getting those curtains drawn at 5pm and curling up in front of the TV with this burning. Ya get me? 

What they say:
"It's the perfect accompaniment to 'me' time - a supremely satisfyingly rich and spicy recipe of ginger, cinnamon and vanilla".
I actually expected to find this a bit headachey, as cinnamon scented candles usually do that to me, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's just enough spice without being overpowering and it's perfect for a cosy evening in. I think the vanilla counteracts the spice and gives it the perfect balance. Even though I think this would be better in Autumn/Winter, I've still been burning this every night now and loving it so it can go down as an all-rounder in my eyes.

What's your favourite Yankee Candle?

  1. Cinnamon and vanilla are my favourite scents so this sounds perfect! I'm a total cliche and love their Vanilla Cupcake candles. I've been through so many of the things!

  2. This one sounds delicious! I'll have to see if I can grab a hold of one and get a whiff! I just received my first ever Yankee Candle as a gift for my birthday, I really can't remember which one right now gahhh!

  3. I haven't heard of this scent before but it sounds really nice.

    I really love the Pink Sands; if you like vanilla, have you tried the Vanilla Satin? It's a bit tricky to get hold of but it's really beaut.
