Good news Yankee fans: the candle emporium has launched two brand new, limited-edition fragrances for Easter and they sound absolutely good enough to eat.

The new spring-inspired fragrances are the kind of pastel colour palette that make you think of Easter-egg hunts and wild flowers and are the perfect non-chocolate, self-care alternative to chocolate treats.

The scents capture the fun and indulgence of sweet-treats traditions of this time of year - but unlike Easter eggs, they won't make you feel sick from overindulging every night of the week.

First up is the Easter Basket scent. The spring-green candle is scented with a fruity mix of lime, Brazilian orange and patchouli - making it a sweetly zesty scent that will make your room feel fresher and more energised.

Inspired by a 'joyful jaunt on Easter morning', the notes of the candle combined are reminiscent of dewy grass, wet woods, fruity jelly babies and bright bouquets.

One shopper who bought Easter Basket wrote in an online review: "Not only does it look gorgeous in its lovely spring like colour but the fragrance is so fresh and clean. It really is like a walk through the meadows."

Rainbow shake is a sweet, baby pink shade which is fragranced with a heady blend of pineapple whip, toasted almonds and cinnamon that smells as delicious as it sounds.

Described by the brand as a "sophisticated sugar rush" the notes of the candle remind us of the blend of summer fruits and sweet vanilla you'd get in a raspberry milkshake.

One Yankee Candle shopper wrote: "Rainbow Shake to me smells exactly like strawberry malt or strawberry shake, and of all the candles I have ever bought from YC (TONS) this one has the best throw of any other candle. I can smell this candle rooms away."

They boast an impressive 110-150 hours of burn time. Translation: your home will smell like Easter long after the Easter bunny has hopped off.

Both fragrances are available in the classic Large Jars (RRP £23.99) from yankeecandle.co.uk or Yankee Candle stores nationwide.
