I recently posted some of the USA Halloween collections for Yankee Candle on the blog [here] and now it's time to show you the UK offerings. Halloween is pretty major for the brand as everything is limited edition and Yankee collectors and fanatics (yes there really are fanatics) go wild for these short-term products - myself included.
Normally we are offered less than the UK which sucks but generally we have a patchouli blend, a sweet candy scent and sometimes there's another scent up for grabs. This year we have two scents. TWO scents! let's just say most of us fanatics are pretty angry about this especially since the USA have at least four for 2015.
I digress slightly so I'll leave the ranty 'tude in the background and move on to the scents...
Witches Brew // The spicy sweet aroma of exotic patchouli casts a captivating spell.
Candy Corn // The familiar, sweet scent of candy corn is a fond reminder of Halloween fun and treats.
Cat Jar Holder | Cat Burner | Cat Sampler Holder | Black Cat Jar Clinger
There are definitely two themes for the UK accessories and that is cats and webs. I adore the cats, I would actually keep the cats out all year but the webs aren't drawing me in. How cute is the cat clinger though and at only £3.99 it's an affordable option for everyone.
Web Iluma Lid | Web Jar Holder | Web Sampler Holder | Orange Bucket Sampler Holder
The webs. What do you think about this collection?
Pumpkin Burner | Skull Sampler Holder | Black Bucket Sampler Holder | Pumpkin Sampler Holder
Finally the characters - that pumpkin tart burner calls my name. The ghost and translucent pumpkin holders feel a little bit lazy again on Yankee's part.
I'd love to know your thoughts on this years range. Were you equally disappointed by the lack of scents and accessories in comparison to the US?
