After the success of the Yankee Candle Christmas wreath last year, Yankee have brought out two advent calendars for 2014. The advent calendar 3D house, and a blue Christmas wreath. Since missing out on the limited edition advent calendar last year, I wasn't leaving it until last minute this year so I picked up both advent calendars this year! You can see my previous post about the Yankee 3D house advent here, however this one is all about the 2014 Christmas Wreath! How cute is my fireplace looking already, and it's only September!
I wasn't sure whether I really needed two advent calendars, but after taking delivery of the 3D house, I knew I just HAD to have the wreath too. I ordered it online at very.co.uk whilst they were offering their spend £50, get £20 off deal, so I picked up my advent calendar and two onesies for £30 which I thought was an awesome deal. Today the post man turned up at my door with this box. I instantly knew what it was, and got a little too excited!
I couldn't wait to get it opened. I'm such a kid when it comes to anything Christmas or Yankee Candle related, so you can just imagine my excitement about this package!
It came with this "how to love your yankee candle" leaflet, which is actually really informative. It explains how long the candles should last, when you should trim the wick etc. I've bought tons of Yankee Candles in the past but never received one of these, so extra bonus points for very!
Here it says that the scented tea lights should last between 4 and 6 hours. How amazing is my house going to smell by December when I have these burning for 4-6 hours, and the ones from the Christmas 3D house too, eeek I can't wait!
Lets get back to the advent calendar...
I really love the design of the box. It's super cute. If only I had a blue wall I could hang it on, it would look like a real wreath. Yankee Candle have truly captured the spirit of Christmas in their advent calendars this year. Who wouldn't want a Christmas wreath that looked as pretty as this? Now lets check out the back of the box, where we can find out exactly what's inside. If you want your advent calendar contents to remain a surprise, you may want to end your reading here because I do open it up shortly!
The box says "count down to Christmas with this collectable advent calendar from the worlds favourite candle company! Every day reveals a tealight candle in one of five seasonal scents, and a special treat on the 24th! Light a new candle each day of advent and celebrate the festive season with your favourite Yankee fragrances. Happy holidays from Yankee Candle"
The fragrances inside are a perfect selection of Christmas scents. I'm personally a huge fan of all of them!
Snowflake cookie - A new Christmas tradition that is sure to charm: perfectly pretty festive cookies, deliciously decorated with sugar pink icing.
Icicles - The crisp, winter forest scent of ice covered pine branches with tingly notes of spicy cinnamon.
Angel wings - Spirits rise on this beautiful, airy aroma of joyfully sweet spun sugar, heavenly sheer flower petals and divinely smooth vanilla.
Cranberry Ice - Refreshinly tart and sweet! A cool, stimulating rush of frosty red fruits bursting with a tangy sweetness.
Christmas Cookie - Buttery rich, vanilla scented, holiday sugar cookies.
Christmas garland - The season comes to life in this lush aroma of fresh-cut pine boughs and zesty cranberries.
You receive 5 of each scent. Yes, you do get 25! That's your extra surprise, on the 24th you will receive two tea lights. I'm going to keep one of them for Christmas day so my house smells delicious right the way through Christmas.
These are the tea lights in all their glory. You'll see the two really close together in the middle, they are for Christmas eve.
