I love my Yankee Candles but they are expensive so are a real treat so I like to take my time when choosing one. I’m a proper ‘sniffer’ in the shop, you know what I mean, sniffing every one before I make my choice but this time the Yankee Candle Black Plum Blossom really caught my eye, I loved it as soon as I had a sniff.

It’s a gorgeously romantic scent, with black plum blossom, white musk & vanilla so no wonder I love it. The vanilla scent isn’t overbearing and gives just enough sweetness to stop it from being too floral. It also has a hint of a fruity smell, probably from the black plum blossom! I’ve had it lit constantly since I bought it and it just blends into the background, not overbearing at all and just enough so that you can smell it as soon as you walk through the door. It is fast turning into one of my favourite Yankee Candles, I think I might even treat myself to a few wax melts too for upstairs.

    Haha I’m a sniffer too! I’m so rubbish at choosing one I always seem to go for the vanilla ones which can be a bit bland..I do love dyptique ones though have you tried those? So expensive though but worth it 🙂

    Ooh I will have to have a look at this next time i’m in the local garden centre. I got a Yankee burner for christmas and I love it, really cost effective because the little wax melts last ages. x
