Yankee Candles


Last week on a shopping trip to Westfield in Derby, I stumbled across a gorgeous little shop, AROMA, which was dedicated to handmade, natural, fragrance gifts. Despite being a fairly small shop, it was absolutely filled, wall to wall, floor to ceiling, with rows of candles in quirky glass jars.

I found every scent imaginable, from 'Baby Powder' to 'Christmas Eve' and everything in between! After literally an hour of breathing in the beauty of every single candle, (much to the annoyance of my boyfriend who quickly became bored and concerned with looking "unmanly") I opted for a small jar of 'Summer Scoop'.

It cost me a rather pricey £8.39 but it was well worth it as it smells absolutely DIVINE . The scent is a mixture of fruity ice cream flavours which i love as it lightens up this incredibly gloomy April weather with memories of summer. Although it boasts 8 hours burning time, I have found that by only burning it for less than an hour at a time, it has lasted much longer. I'll certainly be returning to try out some other gorgeous scents.

Love, Anna x
