Yankee Candle {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

You know how certain companies come to mind as the best and most popular in their category?  For example, I hear chocolate stuffed cookies and immediately think Oreos.  I hear tissues and I immediately think of Kleenex.  I think candles, and thoughts immediately go to the glorious fragrances of Yankee Candle.  They have been creating the most delicious candles for 43 years, in over 35,000 store locations in just North America.  Worldwide, their locations and distributors cover 56 countries.

When it comes to candles, Yankee Candle stands out to me as a forerunner.  I remember shopping as newlyweds with gift cards from our wedding, and on our list of ‘must-get’s for our apartment was a Yankee Candle.  One of these large jar candles costs an average of $27.99, but they last freakin forever (we’re talking 110-150 hours) and the scent is so permeating that we can easily justify the cost.  Sometimes I wonder if men ever get sick of their houses smelling so girly when the wives start lighting all these floral feminine scents, but wait!  Yankee Candle’s MAN CANDLES are back!  This limited edition collection has two new fragrances this year!

You’re going to love this: the scents include: First Down, Riding Mower, Man Town, MMM Bacon, and Movie Night!  How perfect for the man-cave.  We got to try out the latter two, and oh, they are great!

First up: Movie Night.  Based on the picture on the front of the jar, I assumed this would be a strong buttery popcorn smell, and it IS popcorn-scented, but there is also some sweetness to it.  Maybe more like a caramel popcorn.  But then think about any typical movie night and there is usually popcorn AND sweets, so this is probably just right!

Then there’s MMM, Bacon!  This bacon craze is getting out of hand lately!  I love it!  This candle is INTENSELY STRONG!  Whew!  I cooked up some bacon and then had my husband close his eyes and guess which one was under his nose–the food or the candle.  He guessed correctly both times, probably because the candle has a sort of barbeque scent mixed in (like a smoked hickory smell), but barbeque is also manly, so its all good :).

Even though Father’s Day is past and gone, these would be great gift ideas!  And hurry because these are only available through the end of June!  Think summer backyard parties, upcoming birthdays, or anniversaries!  Your man would love one of these!  If you haven’t yet experienced a Yankee Candle, let me point out a few summer favorites:

Go get your man a MAN CANDLE, and pick out something summery for yourself!  Thanks Yankee Candle!  You make the most INCREDIBLE candles!!
