Spring Candles

Spring Candles | Katie Kirk Loves

I do like to keep things seasonal when burning my candles! That isn't to say I won't sometimes burn my Blissful Autumn during spring or Summer Scoop in the winter months but I prefer to keep my home fragrancing fresh and floral in the spring time. That way I get a nice variety of fragrances across the year and it doesn't start to get boring. From fresh clean linen, dewy green grass and spring bouquets. I find it refreshing to burn these kinds of fragrances especially after the heavier, spicer scents I usually have over Christmas. It refreshes and rejuvenates the home, like a spring clean only much less effort! Also the colours of the wax & floral printed accessories make my home decor look more spring-like.

Most of these fragrances are still available in Yankee Candles current range and I have linked you to them in the title of each scent. However some of my favourites have now retired so will be harder to find unfortunately. You can always try eBay & Yankee Scents 4U, they will usually have some of the rarer scents listed especially in tart/melt form. You should also keep your eye on the Special Appearances sections (here and here) on the Yankee Candle websites as you will often find they bring retired fragrances back for limited times.

Granny Smith | "Fresh green apples perfectly juicy and ripe." I love bright, spring green colour of the wax. It really does smell just like a fresh, juicy and crisp green apple I can't get enough of it!

Daffodil | "Sun-drenched and fanciful. . . a lovely perfume of sweet blooms with a bright note of lemony citrus." To me Daffodil's symbolise Spring and Easter time.

My Favourite Online Yankee Candle Retailers:
The Official Yankee Candle UK Site ~ Check out their 'Special Appearances' section for US Exclusives! ~ I love the sets of melts & votives they do when the new fragrances come out each quarter, so I can sample the newbies before buying any jars.
Yankee Scents 4U ~ An amazing site where you can purchase tons of US exculsives, plus old/retired fragrances & candle accessories that you cannot find on any other websites!
QVC UK ~ Great for their special value sets, exclusives and trios of large jars! 
Temptation Gifts ~ Probably have the most competitive prices for Yankee Candles on the web!
What are your favourite fragrances/candles to burn during the Spring time? I would love some new recommendations!
