Cherry Vanilla Glass Jar Yankee Candle Review | My First Ever Yankee Jar

Simply Home Cherry Vanilla | Yankee Candle

I pretty much grew up around candles and with candles as it was a big part of family life for different reasons when growing up. I love candles full stop.

What can I say, when it comes to candles, most people know that the Yankee brand is one of the most popular brands out there if not the most popular brand. So for a while now I have been pleased that the Tesco superstores have been stocking them very frequently. I first spotted it stocked in my local Tesco in 2014 though it may have already been in store for a long time prior to that. I used to only buy the small £1.20 mini Yankee candles and only ever bough the Cherry Vanilla fragrance as upon taking my first sniff, I fell in inlove.

Yet I was still surprised at the beautiful fragrance it gave when lit after a short time and needless to say it became a pretty staple purchase bi-weekly if not weekly. One of my favourite parts of the Cherry Vanilla and Yankee candle experience as a whole is when the candle actually burns out, it gives a final shot of fragrance as if to say, 'adios', which makes me turn to look at it immediately. The first time it happened, I did not know it was the smell of a burn out frangrant candle so I was pleasantly suprised.

For a while I could not convince myself to actually purchase the glass jar version mainly because of the price. I did not know if it was worth it, though I knew I loved it. One day, I decided to. Tesco sells it quite moderately priced for £9.00. Imagine my joy when I lit it. It was such a happy experience, who would have thought lighting a candle could produce a happy moment. I love this fragrance so much, I liken it to the smell of strawberry and vanilla bubble gum, a really good one though. Its quite sweet and has a tasty smell, the kinda of smell which make you think you could eat it, but of course you can't - Disclaimer!

I was also looking forward to the what a finished closed glass jar candle would look like, as you can see above, you end up with a bit of a smoke stained glass and left over wax. Which made me happy, just to see it.  Oh and a great jar to do with it what you please. Recycle! The empty glass has been siting where you see it in the picture as I do not want to throw it away. I shall see what I will do with it.

Out of only two Yankee Candle fragrances I have tried, this is my current favourite. I look to trying more and will also write a review of the second fragrance I have tried.

Have you ever tried a Yankee Candle? Which one did you try and what did you think of it?
