""The Yankee Candle Company""
Firstly I would like to tell you a little about the company who makes these Candles. Yankee Candle is one of the world largest candle company's. It all started with a teenage boy called Mike Kittredge in a town called South Hadley, Massachusetts USA. Mike made is first candle for his mother for Christmas 1969 out of melted crayons. His neighbours saw his candle and brought some so he made more and began producing them in higher amounts. He had help from different sources to find the growth of Yankee Candle. The company slowly expanded and moved to South Deerfield in 1983.
Yankee Candle has grown and now has Many shops and factories throughout Europe, the Uk is a big seller of the Candles.
Yankee Candy doesn't just sell candles, they sell many different fragranced products like Room Sprays, Car Fresheners, Hand sanitizers, Diffusers, Tart Burners, Candle Stands, Plug-ins.

""My Personal Experience with Yankee Candle:""
I have been buying Yankee Candle products for over 3 years now, someone brought me one as a gift and i was amazed at the strong and lasting area of the candle. I then started buying these candles myself using the smaller samplers to check if i liked the smell before purchasing larger jars. I have tried many different fragrances and have many personal likes as well as some i will not use again.
This candle i brought off line as the idea of my house smelling fresh and clean like fluffy towels apealed to me.
I brought the small jar off line on ebay and was priced at £7.49, the price can vary from store to store and online. They also do the larger size of the jars and the smaller wax tarts and samplers in this aroma. The overall burning time for a small jar is between 25-40 hours.
Small Jar Size and Weight:
60(w) x 87(h) x 60(d)
When i recieved this jar i was really surprised at how strong the smell was even just by opening the package. I lit the candle and after about 5 minutes my house smelt like i had just been washing towels, not sure if thats a good or bad thing but personally to me i like the idea. You really get a mix of aromas and i find this a hard Candle to pick out the different aromas/ingrediants, which are lemon, apple, lavender and lily. The let down on this is that when you blow out the candle the aromas disappear too quick.
