To really get you in a Christmassy mood, your next GLOSSYBOX ‘Advent Calendar’ gift will help create a cosy and festive ambience in your home. You guessed it – it’s a Yankee Candle!

Yankee Candle Christmas Range

The countdown continues with a Small Jar Candlemade with premium-grade paraffin wax. Featuring a hand-straightened wick that ensures the very best quality burn, these adorable jar candles are the perfect size to sample the fragrance of the Christmas season.

Which Scent Will You Receive?

You Glossies will be treated to the sumptuous scent of one of three candle fragrances in a Small Jar Candle from the Yankee Candle® festive range: The Perfect Tree, Berry Trifle or Season of Peace.

We’ve had a lot of debate here at GLOSSYBOX about which one is our favourite. Everyone agrees that the Berry Trifle has a lovely fragrance that reminds us of fruit-of-the-forest crumble and sweet raspberry jams from the Christmas market. A couple of girls from the Glossy team are looking forward to taking some self-care time to soak in a hot bath and create a relaxing mood with Season of Peace. Personally, I just love the smell of an evergreen at Christmas, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for The Perfect Tree.

Whichever candle you receive, you can fill your home with a festive aroma for up to 30 hours.

Caring For Your Candle

Who knew you should be caring for your candle? But there are just a couple of things you should do before lighting your candle.

  1. Trim the wick to 3mm. I’d recommend doing this before each use -it allows the wax to burn more easily and enhances the fragrance. Before you light the wick, you should also make sure you’ve placed your jar candle on a heat-resistant surface.
  2. When using your candle, make sure your wax melts all the way across the top layer of the candle right up to the edges. This ‘pooling effect’ takes about 30 minutes for every 1cm in diameter your candle is. If you don’t do this, your candle can burn straight down, creating a tunnel and leaving lots of wasted wax. Make your candle last as long as possible Glossies, grow your wax pool.

I know it sounds obvious, but you should be careful not to leave your candles unattended. Always remember to extinguish the flame before leaving the house or going to sleep. I’d also suggest investing in a Candle Snuffer to extinguish the flame more gently. It’ll prevent smoking and stop wax from escaping the candle.

Bringing Memories To Life

Let’s face it, we’ve all heard of Yankee Candle and it’s a staple favourite here at GLOSSY. Filling homes with a wide range of true-to-life fragrances, the go-to brand aims to bring memories to life through familiar and heart-warming scents. A great gift or a just a treat for yourself, their home fragrance collection boasts six classic styles of candles, as well as various accessories and flameless fragrance solutions.

All I Want… Is A Yankee Candle

I don’t know about you but when I think of Christmas the first thing that comes to mind is the smell of mulled wine and gingerbread biscuits. I’m not much of a baker though, so thankfully I can just shop the Yankee Christmas-inspired range! They’ve got a selection of festive scents available in the small jar candle size. They’d be a perfect Secret Santa gift! I know I’ll be adding Cinnamon Stick and Christmas Cookie to my wishlist.
