Yankee Candle collectionHi there, OK so I know this is my 2nd blog this week but I simply HAD to tell you about the first Yankee Today's Special Value of 2013 (on Sunday 6th January). If, like me, you are a Yankee addict I have a feeling you are going to love it!!!

I don't want to give TOO much away but I can tell you that for the first time we have the new 2013 spring fragrances before ANY other retailer in the UK, how exciting is that?!

We are done with winter, and spring here we come!! The new fragrances for 2013 in the TSV are TURQUOISE SKY (my new favourite in the 'category' – I love it, reminds me of any holiday I have ever taken!), WAIKIKI MELON (a creamy, fruity, uplifting scent – delicious!) and BLACK COCONUT (having a black candle is SO en vogue and the fragrance is perfect when you want a sensual, spicy, sweet fragrance in the home)….

As you will see from the photos I have had great fun trying the new fragrances out in different rooms of my home. The spare room is fragranced with the welcoming, happy scent of Waikiki Melon; I had a soothing bath thinking of warmer, sunnier climes with Turquoise Sky and in my bedroom the relaxing scent of Black Coconut matches my new black Bose music system!! In the lounge I mixed up the fragrances and nestled them along the mantelpiece and among my beloved Buddhas from Thailand.

The TSV is a fantastic value set and comprises of sampler candles, T-lights and holders, more details on Saturday night. There is also an Auto Delivery option that I reckon you may want take advantage of – new fragrances every 3 months for the whole year!!!

Loads more to tell you so do try and stay up and I will see you for the launch Saturday (5th January) at midnight. Rosa will be guesting, can't wait to see her and if you have any questions just leave a comment on this blog.

There are more spoiler pics on my Facebook page: Craig Rowe QVC Presenter

Much love, see you Saturday night!!!



P.S. – if you are very savvy and an SBC fan, you might also spot something new in the bathroom photo, more details next week!!! x

    Thanks for the heads up Craig, I,m a HUGE Yankee fan too ! Still burning my christmas ‘snow in love’ but hey, there is always room for more in my candle cupboard ! All serious Yankee fans must have one of these !!? I also love watching Rosa, she always makes me smile and she is so knowledgeable about Yankee, really evoking the aromas to a tee. Hope that you two will be doing the TSV as you make a great couple as your sheer joy of Yankee candles really shines through ! On that note Craig keep shinning in 2013, like you always do and Happy New Year to you. Love and best wishes Helen. x

    Hi Craig
    I didn’t get the TSV as I only use the wax tarts (and tea lights occasionall) but was very tempted as was such a good deal. I did get the new smells from Yankee and although I do not normally like the “foodie” ones the melon is really nice.I do also really like the black coconut mmmmmm! I have three more to try – some extra ones to what QVC have. Very nice smells indeed
