Yankee Candle Haul!!!

Hey everyone! So I'm sure if you are a fragrance fan then you know that Yankee Candle currently has a sale on their votives and tarts for $1 each. I went to Yankee Candle yesterday and grabbed a few votives and tarts and I just wanted to share some pictures. There are four of the scents I don't recommend at all. You're probably thinking then why did I buy them!? Well, I like to go in and just grab random scents or scents that I'll think that I will like to try. I mean for just $1, why not make it a little more interesting! ;)

I picked up:

  • Blueberry Scone
  • Sweet Strawberry
  • Vineyard
  • Waikiki Melon
  • Carrot Cake
  • Granny Smith
  • Vanilla Caramel
  • Splash of Rain
  • Pink Dragon Fruit
  • Paradise Spice --> MY FAVORITE OF THEM THEM ALL<--
  • Honeydew Melon
  • MacIntosh
  • Oceanside
  • Juicy Watermelon 
  • Buttercream
  • Costal Waters
  • Bahama Breeze
  • Vanilla Cupcake
  • Island Spa

HAUL! ;)

Left to right: Oceanside, Blueberry Scone, Sweet Strawberry, Waikiki Melon, Paradise Spice. 

Left to right starting at the top row: Vanilla Caramel, Granny Smith, Carrot Cake, Splash of Rain, Costal Waters, Island Spa, Vanilla Cupcake, MacIntosh, Honeydew Melon,
Bahama Breeze, Pink Dragon Fruit, Juicy Watermelon, Vineyard, Buttercream 

These are the 4 scents I do not recommend! 
Sweet Strawberry just doesn't do it for me like B&BW Strawberry does. 
Vineyard also just doesn't do it for me like Tuscan Vineyard from B&BW.
Blueberry Scone just flat out doesn't smell good to me. I thought it would be more sweet.
Waikiki Melon, I smell cantaloupe which I love but there is something else there that makes it stink!

What scents do you recommend from Yankee Candle? 


  1. Kelley I like your blog :)

    I noticed you deleted the one link you left earlier, which was probably smart. Just because Yankee is BBW's biggest competitor. Otherwise love the post! I picked up a couple tarts myself but can't even remember all the scents! Black coconut, tropical spice, mango peach salsa, ocean spa... And one other I can't remember.

  2. Thank you Cia! I really don't consider myself a blogger, I just enjoy sharing pics and hauls. :) And yes I deleted the link ... I think I should have shared it on the B&BW Sista's page as everyone was talking about Yankee Candle goodies there lol because people can be mean on the B&BW page. It's amazing how mean people can get over body lotion and candles. I need to pick up some of the scents you mentioned from Yankee while they are still a $1. Mango Peach Salsal sounds good! :)

    1. Yeah it's ridiculous last night was fairly entertaining. Either way I just wanted to pop in to give a little encouragement... I was hoping you didn't delete the link because you were being bullied! It's running rampant right now.

    2. Yes, I did see all that on Facebook last night lol. It just blows my mind that people get so worked up over a fragrance getting discontinued. It's not the end of the world, it's just a scent and they have a ton more to choose from with new ones coming out all the time. Not to mention they run sales like crazy and give you millions of opportunities to stock up on your fave scent. I did delete it because some people had a problem with it being posted there and I'm not trying to start anything. All I wanted to do was share a haul and some pics. Thank you for the encouragement but you're the one that needs it. I've seen the rude and unnecessary comments people leave you on your blog and on FB. I'm sure you've developed a thick skin for this kinda thing by now. Hope you never take your blog down though because of it because I would be lost without all your great info! :) Amazes me that people want to be rude to someone who is giving them info that they would otherwise not know.

    3. Haha oh I stay tough, I have definitely gotten some thick skin after everything. I know within a few hours of you posting your blog on the page I got a message from a fake account of someone trying to cause problems between us, and you being my new competition etc. I just laughed at it, I mean seriously? Some people have no life. I love reading blogs aside from my own, and I'm hoping Tess gets gets up again soon. Plus LBD etc. But it's like people think I am evilly out to eliminate every other blogger but myself lol. Friendly competition is appropriate, and I'm not going to lie I definitely love when I get new info before anyone else... But I'm not going to every time... However having others who are just as easily able to get new info is a motivating tool to work just a little harder. Lol well whatever I am thrilled you are doing your blog, and next time I do work on my blog ill be adding your blog under my "favorite links".

  3. Seriously, a fake account, how crazy!?! Lol. Well, I definitely don't look at myself as competition because all I'm doing is posting photo's whereas you have sources and know people and you are able to obtain information about new products and what's coming out and when. I have no sources. Lol. I just luckily have a great local B&BW manager who was nice enough to let me buy a few products early. Oh and she wanted to know how I knew about all this being out and about all the test store candles ... She thinks it's amazing lol as she had no idea about test stores. She wanted to read your blog so I gave her the name of your blog. She was excited lol. I read your blog everyday and I know I'd be lost without all the great info your provide. :) You, Theresa, and LBD learn and share all the good stuff though! ;)

    1. Thanks for sharing my blog with her :) I absolutely love doing it and I'm never gonna stop.

      And yes, sadly some people just don't have lives... They seem to love stirring the drama pot. They were trying to get Tess and I mad at each other again even after calling truce... It's ridiculous.

    2. By the way Kelkey never forget... My blog started out just like what yours is now.

  4. Your welcome! :) She was so excited to check it out.

    I don't understand some people and their need to start drama. Drama seems to follow some people and they thrive on it. No drama for us though ... I have enjoyed your blog for a very long time and will continue to do so. I NEED that insider info you provide! :)

    Aww, thank you. Maybe my blog will get popular like yours or maybe it won't but either way it's still fun. :)

  5. Amazing selection, Yankee candles really are such a treat aren't they?
