To some £19.99 for a large candle may seem a little expensive, however you have to think about the quality of the candles, their scent, and how long the candles will burn for. If you are going to spend money on a large candle like the ones above, it's important that you like the scent that you are buying. Collectables stock a range of sample size Yankee Candles, priced between just 96p and £1.80. These are perfect if you have never experienced a certain scent and want to ensure you like it, before you buy the bigger version. Alternatively you could purchase one of the smaller wax tarts, which also come in a
variety of scents and are very reasonably priced between 72p and £1.25 on the Collectables website.
After browsing the website I noticed that Collectables offer discounts on some of the larger Yankee candles, reducing some of them around the £14-£15 mark. They also have a fragrance of the month, which you can get a 25% discount on. The fragrance currently on offer is called 'Baby Powder' which is supposed to have a gentle and innocent scent.
As I mentioned in a previous post about candles, I love to burn them in my living room. I think it's lovely when guests come to visit and comment on how beautiful my house smells, or when I'm out and about and a certain smell reminds me of home. The larger candles will make a lovely gift, whether its for a birthday, graduation or moving in present. If you know that the person your buying for likes a few different scents, you could even box up a few of the sample sizes, for an extra personal touch.
