Last month I was invited to the Yankee Candle store in Brighton for the launch of their brand new Elevation Collection of Candles. The look of this range is very modern and on trend in terms of interior styling and it features a range of fantastic fragrances that are different to their core range. “Soft corners and an updated, tapered silhouette—perfect for showcasing your style in every room. Quality, thick-cut-glass adds impressive dimension and makes these candles so very gift worthy” - and more importantly insta worthy! They come in three different sizes all with a metallic gold lid that the candle sits snuggly on top of when you’re burning it acting like a very chic coaster. I’m actually in the middle of completely overhauling my bedroom at the moment and the design of this range is just the kind of sleek, modern, paired back vibe I’m going for. So I’m thinking of purchasing a couple of the large ones. 


As you can imagine, if you know me well at all, this was a dream event for me! Saying I have an obsession with Yankee Candles is rather an understatement - my whole house is packed with them. My life has never been the same since the store in Worthing closed down back in 2015 (bit dramatic but it paints a picture!). It was massive and I used to love going in there and smelling all the candles, going to loyalty events and picking up rare ones. Every staff member knew me by name! Boy did I make the most of their closing down sale though!! The Brighton store in Churchill square has only been open for around a year and it’s so lovely, bigger than you’d think it was going to be too. I was in my element talking fragrances with all the staff and PR girls there. Although afterwards I worried I came across as slightly crazed!

Back to the new Elevation Collection though. Let me walk you through all the fragrances, my favourites and Yankees description of the scent notes. Hopefully it might help you decide which one to go for.

The base of amber and musk are more solid and spiced, blending beautifully with the mid-tones.”

Sweet Orange Spice | A gathering of harvest scents—cinnamon, clove, ginger and pumpkin—that's refreshing and warm.” This delightful concoction from Yankee Candle combines a gathering of harvest scents; of cinnamon and clove and ginger and pumpkin. It is both refreshing and warm. The top notes of nutmeg, ginger, and orange peel remind you of a deep autumn night, with a clear sky and a refreshing wind, with delightful drinks and lovely company. The middle notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove lend themselves to later in the year, to spiced punch and warm blankets, and the base notes of camel, vanilla, and sugar crystals remind you of warming desserts on a cold evening.
Top: Nutmeg, Ginger
Mid: Pumpkin, Cinnamon
Base: Vanilla, Clove



They’ll be launching new scents in this ranch each season so we have lots more to look forward to! My favourite fragrances currently are Sheer Linen & Velvet Woods. They’re both a quite fresh and nice ones to burn all day. I think Velvet Woods is more for cozy autumnal days and Sheer Linen for fresh springs ones.

Charming Scents



As well as the Elevation Collection, Yankee have also launched these brand new Charming Scents car fragrance bangles to have our cars smelling beautiful for any upcoming trips! You choose your favourite Yankee scent which goes inside the refillable locket on the bangle. We’ve currently got Pink Sands in our car which is an all time favourite scent of mine. It’s just like your car having it’s own charm bracelet really. You can personalise it with all sorts of pretty charms from their range too! I think they look so much more classy than the cardboard or gel car fragrances. Did someone say road trip?!
