As a long-time fan of Yankee Candles, I was delighted when they began to sell them at Brundall Home Hardware. They have an ever growing range of candles, wax tartlets car fresheners and diffusers. Among the vast selection there is sure to be something to appeal to everyone’s sense of smell. From fluffy towels and baby powder, fruity scents and smells of baking to the more exotic.
Each month the shop has fragrances of the month and these are on offer at a 25% discount. This month there are three, Black Cherry, Summer Scoop and Sugar Apple. All three have a lovely summery fragrance without being to overpowering. These fragrances are available in all sizes but be quick as they tend to sell very quickly.
The wax tarts are an excellent way to experiment with what Yankee has to offer, these can be used in either a bowl warmer over a tea light or with an electric burner, both are available in store in a range of different designs. The scent lasts for around eight hours though I have found some last much longer. I find though that after around four hours I allow the wax to reset, then remove and wrap in cling film to use another day. For the more adventurous if you have a few melts you can invent your own scents by breaking up the melts and mixing the scents

Homemade Jam A mix of Red Raspberry and Sweet Strawberry
Lemon Drizzle A mix of Sicilian Lemon and Vanilla Cupcake
Summer Beach A mix of Summer Scoop and Fluffy towels
Yankee regularly bring out new fragrances and I have had the opportunity to test out a few of them
Olive and Thyme I wasn’t too sure when I opened this one, but it filled the house with a lovely fragrance of olive and citrus, this one lasted far more than eight hours too so even more value for money
Summer Peach A lovely subtle fruity scent of fresh peaches. A more predictable but nevertheless pleasing fragrance
Sea Salt and Sage Definitely a new favourite in this house, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one but it has a clean crisp scent perfect for the Summer
In the last week Brundall Home Hardware has added another display unit to further expand the range, pop in store and see for yourself, you will be spoilt for choice.
