MADISONVILLE, KENTUCKY -- I've been a customer of Yankee Candle for well over twelve years. With our recent move to Madisonville, there are no stores around here that carry this brand of scented candle. Their candles are a little on the expensive side, but they burn longer and smell better than the cheaper scented candles and oil plug-ins that you can purchase at retail chain stores.
Their Housewarmer Jar candles are true to life scented and are very good at helping get rid of smells like, “who was the last person in the bathroom and remind me not to make that for dinner again,” “why does the bedroom smell like the men's locker room,” and my favorite, “who hid the potato in the computer desk?” They also have electric home air fresheners that are safer to put in places where you should not burn candles, like the nursery to get rid of that eau de diaper pail smell and in the laundry room to help with dirty coal miner's clothes. As well as Car Jars to help with long road trips and the aftermath of fast food for dinner.
Their website is easy to use and has a note next to each product letting you see the availability of the items that you want to purchase. I find that's very helpful when shopping for gifts for relatives and friends so that you don't buy something that is going to be back ordered. All in all it's a great company, their customer service is top notch. I called once because one of my candles was damaged when I received it and got a new one sent to me the next day along with a pre-paid box and shipping label to send the damaged one back. So if you are in the market for some candles or pretty stuff to make your house smell nice, check them out!
Last week while looking at sale priced candles at Target, I came across their new display of Yankee Candle Home Classics fall scents. The Pumpkin Spice smelled wonderful in the jar, so much so that I was willing to pay full price ($24), something I rarely do. All I can say is WOW. I have burned this candle for a total of 15-18 hours so far and the scent is still as fresh and intense as it was the first time. It fills the whole room and lingers for hours. This is a terrific fall scent and well worth the price. It's a 22 ounce jar and the sticker on the bottom says approximate burn time 110-150 hours.
