Yankee Candle Ocean Star

I'm really getting into my scented candles and one brand I really like is Yankee Candle. They do an awesome range of scents and very often they bring out limited edition ones. Last month I was shopping in Bath and noticed a store selling Yankee products. The store was bigger than the one here in Cardiff and I noticed that they had some large jar candles that I had never seen before.

I was told that they were from a collection a while ago and are now discontinued. They had a few to choose from and the one I liked best was called Ocean Star. You can probably guess from the name that it is themed to the sea. The picture on the jar sort of gives it away too and the candle is a really nice turquoise color.



The scent is really nice and fresh, a great one for summer. It reminds me of a warm summer day at the beach and going into the sea. This one has scents of aloe, citrus and lotus blossom. It's definitely really calming too.

The large jar candles from Yankee give around 110 to 150 hours of fragrance. I've never gone for a large jar candle before, but i'm really glad I did as this wonderful scent isn't available any more.

  1. i used to collect candles and my favourites have of course always been scented ones, but we don't have yankee candle here, i only saw it in shops when i was in the usa long ago and it's hard to find ones that have a really strong nice perfume range. but..do i spot a lush box over there?

  5. I am still getting through my cinnamon Yankee Candle I've had for years. The big ones last so long. I think I'll try out their soy range as I've recently read loads of bad things about standard candles in regards to health.

    1. I read that too, I don't really pay much notice to these so called experts though. There are much more harmful things to your health outside (car fumes, stuff coming from factories). I think unless you are standing right next to the candle with a bag over your head inhaling, i think you will be fine x
