Yankee Candle Blueberry Scone


Yankee Candle Blueberry Scone review


Yankee Candle Blueberry Scone *Large Jar Candle - £19.99

Weather in the UK can be a bit hit and miss sometimes but one thing we can count on are the new seasonal releases from Yankee Candle.
Blueberry Scone sees a long awaited comeback onto the UK site and one that anyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy. The iconic large jar provides 110 - 150 hours burn time which fills the room and rooms around it with its captivating aroma and means you can enjoy the fragrance without the worry of it running out anytime soon.

"The delicious aroma of English quickbread with sweet blueberries, rich cream and a hint of vanilla." Yankee Candle

The scent is sweet and comforting but not in an overpowering way and reminds me of Hubba Bubba bubble gum (the blueberry kind,.. obviously ;p). You can definitely smell the richness of the cream, and the vanilla softens the sweetness of the blueberry's. The warm comforting fresh bakery scent from the scone adds a homely and relaxing vibe to it that has you wanting to snuggle up into a blanket. To me this is such a comforting aroma, the sort of feeling you get when you smell freshly baked bread or your grandma's cooking, to me this is home in a jar. 
This is the type of  fragrance that can see you through all the seasons and perfect if you're like me and always on a diet, this gives you that sugar fix you need without piling on the pounds! 

If sweet treats aren't your thing there are some other fantastic scents to choose from...
Berry Colada  
 Smooth summer refreshment . . sweet and tangy red berries blended with cool, creamy vanilla.
Juicy Peach 
 Practically dripping with the mouth-watering scent of luscious, crisp orchard peaches.
Greenhouse
A beautiful blend . . . the heady perfume of delicate rose blossoms intertwined with spicy green herbs
Wild Pansies 
  It's always spring with this lush scent of brilliantly hued flowers.

All these and many other scents are available now from the Yankee Candle website.
