Yankee Candle Indian Summer Collection

I am obsessed with candles, my house is filled with them and is we come into the colder months there is nothing nicer then getting home after a long day and snuggling on the sofa with lots of candles lit. They just create such a nice atmosphere.

Yankee Candle has to be one of my favourite candle brands and when I spotted that they had just released a new range in time for Autumn I just had to try them so treated to a box of their sample sized candles. I am terrible for doing this, if I really fall in love with a particular scent I end up caving and buying the full sized version!

So the Indian Summer Collection consists of the following 5 candles...

Honey Glow

This is such a gorgeous scent! I wouldn’t say it has a strong honey smell thought, but that's probably a good thing as I think I would be too sickly then. This instead is more sweet and floral scented, it really is gorgeous. I wish you could do scratch and sniff on blogs as I'm not sure how to describe just how good it is! This is definitely one I would be considering getting a larger version of!
Amber moon
This is a lovely sweet musky scent with a hint of citrus. Its not my favourite in this collection but it still is absolutely lovely.
Ginger Dusk
I'm not a huge fan of ginger, so it came as no surprise to me that this is my least favourite. It has a really strong spicy citrus scent and reminded me of cloves. Also something I'm not a fan of. Its just a bit too strong of a scent for me.
Lake Sunset
I adore this candle! It is gorgeous! The scent reminds me of the smell that hits you when you walk into a Yankee Candle Store. Its a soft scent and slightly floral. This may be heading my way at some point in a large jar!
Wild Fig
This has to be my favourite scent of the collection. Its very fruity, fresh and strong and feels like a really fitting scent for this time of year. I know I am going to be treating myself to a large jar of Wild Fig. Its a really gorgeous scent that lingers and smells amazing!
These candles are gorgeous and make me feel all cosy! There is a real mix of floral and fruity scents with this range so there is something for everyone. What’s your go to scent for candles?
