Today, I have another Yankee Candle Votive Review! This time, I'm talking about the gorgeous Simply Home Lemon Cream fragrance. You can see some of my other Yankee candle reviews here and here.
This Candle's fragrance is described as being "...like a macaroon, soft chewy and creamy lemon..." Sounds delicious, right?! The scent is quite complex and consists of three main fragrance layers: "gingerbread, french vanilla & icing sugar with fresh, floral lemon."
This votive has one of the strongest fragrances I've found among Yankee Candles so far. Right from the moment I bought this and brought it home, it made the car and the living room smell delicious! Burning it just takes the fragrance to a whole new level but it's not overpowering either. These small samplers can actually last up to 15 hours, especially if you burn them in a purpose made votive holder like I always do! 15 hours is actually a very impressive amount of burn time for such a small candle!
Lemon Cream Yankee Candle
The Yankee Candle Simply Home range was actually designed to be exclusive to the US market but some of the fragrances have made their way to Europe and the UK in recent years. I'm delighted with this gorgeous Lemon Cream Yankee Candle but repurchasing it might be a slight problem as I haven't seen it available in many places. I bought this one from Clinton Cards during a 'Candle of the Month' offer and I've started to notice that lots of Yankee Candle retailers are running Candle of the Month promotions where you can save 25% off the RRP of a selected fragrance of the month. This usually means you will pay about £1.35 per sampler rather than £1.80, saving a modest £0.45. Not a huge saving I know, but remember: If you look after the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves!
I love this candle, it's absolutely gorgeous and definitely one for lovers of sweet foodie fragrances like myself! I would recommend giving it a try if you see it in any shops near you as I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by this delicious little candle. Have you ever tried the Lemon Cream Yankee Candle and what Yankee Candle fragrance do you think I should try next?
