J’adore the latest summer collection of candles from Yankee Candle. Designed to whisk you off to the continent, the three new fragrances are based around classic French and Italian treats and are ideal for use in the kitchen, and home in general, for a rich fragrance that lasts for hours. Tarte Tatin, Cappuccino Truffle and Pain au Raisin conjure up just-baked delights and heart-warming drinks.
My favourite – Pain au Raisin – is a warm blend of cognac soaked raisins, buttery vanilla dough and cinnamon.
The lovely rosy-red Tarte Tatin is based on a just-baked tart of sweet apples, spices and vanilla.
Finally, the Cappuccino Truffle is a decadent fragrance with roasted coffee and velvety chocolate notes.
Available in Large, Medium and Small jars as well as votives and wax melts, there’s also a new accessory collection, including trays and votive holders decorated in a cute, ‘cafe culture’ motif.
What’s more, to celebrate the launch of the new collection, Yankee Candle are also holding a competition which gives the chance for a Yankee fan to really get under the skin of the continent and win a European city break for two. Enter now at: www.yankeecandlecafeculture.co.uk
