Yankee Candle True Rose Classic 5 Votives Gift Set - £10.00
Recently I've become obsessed with lighting candles in my room to help settle down of an evening and night. I find that by going to bed and turning all the lights off and having a candle lit on my bedside table creates such a relaxing and calm atmosphere. As I had voucher for Clintons I figured I'd have a look at their range of Yankee Candles, the True Rose Votives set was actually the first I saw in store and I couldn't resist the cute packaging. The Yankee Candle True Rose Votives gift set contains 5 sampler candles, and is presented in a gorgeous Valentines themed gift box.
What I love about Samplers is that they are a great way to try out new scents without buying a jar and then not liking the scent as the full sized jars are quite expensive. You can even house these in your own jars, and I got a couple of these glass jars from The Range, they are quite big and so let a lot of light out around the room.
True Rose is described as alluring, rich, velvety and as fragrant as a bouquet of flawless deep red roses, and the scent of these candles is pretty spot on. The scent really does smell like a fresh boutique of red roses, without being too overpowering and the floral aroma leaves my room smelling fresh and cosy. Once lit, the candles aromas fill the room within a matter of minutes and once the candle is blown out the scent lingers for a good while.
I think this would make a perfect scent for a romantic night in over Valentine's Day, whether it be in the form of the True Rose tea lights or the large glass jar. So if you are having a nice meal in or getting comfy on the sofa watching a film these will help ensure a romantic atmosphere for the night.
In store this set cost me £7.50 which means you are saving a bit of money in comparison to buying the samplers individually at anywhere from £1.60 to £1.80 per sampler.
Yankee state that each Sampler provides up to 15 hours of fragrance, and this is about right. I normally find that these last anywhere from a week to two depending on how long they are burning on a night. If I leave them burning for a couple of hours a night then it will last a week, but if it's up to an hour then they do last two weeks.
Overall this is a gorgeous set from Yankee, and would make a perfect gift for someone special this Valentines.
