Yankee Unveils Two Advent Calendars For Christmas And We Want Both
If there's any brand to have us willing on Christmas before summer's even out with its festive candles, it's Yankee.
Now, the scent specialist is tantalising our festive tastebuds once more by dropping its 2019 advent calendar early - and this year there's TWO options to choose from.
Fans can choose returning favourite, The Yankee Candle Advent Wreath, a wreath-shaped advent featuring 24 doors all with tea lights hidden behind in eight of Yankee's brand new Christmas scents.
These include new offerings Pomegranate Gin Fizz, Candlelit Cabin, Evergreen Mist, After Sledding, and returning favourites Cinnamon Stick, Christmas Cookie, Snowflake Cookie and Christmas Magic. Calendar holders will also get a glass tea light holder behind one of the doors.
The Yankee Candle Advent Wreath costs £24.99. New this year, fans of Yankee can also get their hands on the brand's Candle Advent Book. Coming in a fold-out book design, the calendar features the usual 24 doors, but this time, a mixture of tea lights and votive candles - the brand's larger 49gram offering - hide behind them.
The Yankee Candle Advent Book cost £34.99. Both calendars can be purchased in store or online from 1st September 2019.
Earlier this month, Yankee revealed four new delicious-smelling festive candles for us to get our hands on ahead of the big day.
Evergreen Mist, After Sledding, Candlelit Cabin and Pomegranate Fizz have been added to its offering, and the names alone gave us ALL the festive feels.
'Evergreen Mist' - described as "peaceful walk through snow-carpeted evergreen forest as the morning sun creates swirls or bracing mist" - has top notes of Douglas fir, orange zest and forest air, middle notes of evergreen bark and hints of eucalyptus, and base notes of balsam, vanilla and pine.
'After Sledging', summed up as "The scent of tempting treats - sweet maple, baking spices and vanilla bean - offers a warm welcome after a day of winter fun." Burn this baby and you'll get top notes of maple, toffee, cinnamon, middle notes of salted caramel brûlée and nutmeg, and base notes of vanilla bean and maple drizzle.
'Candlelit Cabin' is supposed to make you think of "The warm glow of candlelight that welcomes you to a winter retreat - rustic pine, warm spices and earthy notes fill the air." Sniffing it will give you top notes of rhubarb, black peppercorn, and apple, middle notes of nutmeg, magnolia and hazelnut and base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and amber.
Finally, 'Pomegranate Fizz' is based on a favourite Christmas tipple. "A sparkling holiday drink - sweet pomegranate mingles with fresh citrus and cranberry - cheers!," reads the description. Burn this and you'll be hit with top notes of cranberry, sparkling pomegranate, fresh lime, festive orange and mid notes of juniper berry, rosemary and gin. You final impression will be of agave syrup and a fruity musk.
All candles cost £23.99 for the signature large jar candle, £1.99 for the 49g votive candle and £1.79 for the 22g wax melt.
Christmas can't come sooner TBH.
