Our Yankee Candle guest on their new Spa candles


Michaela Lee We can’t wait to get our hands on Today's Special Value set from Yankee Candle! We're part of the UK launch of this exciting Aromatherapy Spa collection – Yankee Candle guest Michaela Lee tells us more…

How did you come up with the Aromatherapy Spa idea? 

Yankee Candle are experts in producing home fragrance and we wanted to produce a range of candles for individuals to really indulge their senses.
The Aromatherapy Spa collection is a stimulating set crafted to enhance well-being of the mind with the special essential oil blends targeted to specific mood benefits.

Today's Set comes in a choice of two aromatherapy based fragrances – who would each set suit?

Yankee Candle Spa Collection The Aromatherapy Spa collection is designed as more of a mood-enhancer. I can answer this question by thinking about the type of person and mood each blend is aimed towards.

True Bliss is suited to a woman who enjoys the vivacity of life just as much as she enjoys ‘me’ time. Her world is fast-paced yet she ensures her life has a strong work/life balance so she can enjoy the finer things!

Stress Relief on the other hand is suited to a woman who doesn’t always have time for ‘me’, she puts the world before herself and when she does finally get to wind down, she will truly benefit from this beautiful fragrance to aid her relaxation.
What makes Yankee Candle stand out from other scented candles?

Each candle offers true-to-life fragrances that do not smell synthetic, and we offer so many to choose from which you can trust to fill your home with adorable scents. People also trust Yankee Candle as our customers know that when they buy a Yankee Candle they are buying a high quality, long-lasting home fragrance product.
What is your all-time favourite Yankee Candle?

This is no secret, Midnight Jasmine. The fragrance takes me back to holidays in Tunisia, where in the evenings the luxurious scent of jasmine is at its most pungent. This fragrance reminds me to slow down otherwise life just passes by. 

What can we look forward to from Yankee Candle this autumn/winter?

Lots of warm, comforting welcoming scents, to make your house feel like a home. Look out for new fragrances such as Creamy Caramel which smells just like warm, melt-in-your-mouth, delicious caramel topping. We also have Spiced Orange, which is a citrus and spice blend – the perfect winter warmer. 

Mistletoe and Fig is the new fragrance I will be burning this Christmas: brown sugar, fig and plums are some of the fragrant notes which have captured my imagination. I can’t wait for it to arrive in our warehouse!

    Hello Michaela, I love Yankee Candles and have loads! My absolute favourite is Sage and Cinnamon. I would love it if this could be brought back into production (although I realise this can only be done if loads of people want it). It is like being given a hug.
    In hopes

    My first ever Yankee Candle was a “Splash of Rain” and I loved it, I used it in my Treatment room and my Clients loved it too. Do you still do it as I cannot find it anywhere ? Thank you

    Hi Michaela, I love what you have brought to us with the aromatherapy TSV. I just took delivery of the True Bliss and they smell divine. Your description of them being “creamy” is so accurate. These candles have exceeded my expectations. I have just posted a 5* review and that’s before I’ve even burned any. Thank you so much. Could we please have tarts for the tart burners in the True Bliss fragrances please. It would be great for when you don’t have time to burn the candles to the edge of the jars. Keep smiling, I enjoy watching your presentations, especially with Craig as he’s such a fan!
