About Yankee Candles

They say the nose is the doorway to memory, and nobody knows it better than the scent specialists at Yankee Candle. Fragrances like fresh mowed grass, baked apple pie and smooth, creamy vanilla immediately conjure up emotions linked to memories long forgotten. Yankee Candle is a longtime powerhouse in the scented candle industry, with product lines that appeal to everyone and accessories that make their luminaries last longer and burn brighter. The company stays true to its roots with down-home candle lines like Americana, with flavors like Let Freedom Ring and Stars and Stripes, and the Pure Radiance series, with fragrances like Cinnamon Scone and Denim. There's also the Man Candle line geared toward tough guys, featuring scents like Mmm Bacon, First Down and Movie Night. In addition to its classic jar candles, pillars, votives, tapers and tea lights, Yankee Candle also sells a healthy variety of flameless products, including wax melts, which are designed for special holders that melt the wax chips using a heat source from below, as well as plug-in air fresheners and outdoor mosquito-blocking candles disguised as attractive torches and lanterns. Yankee Candle won't leave you lacking in other departments, either, with a full complement of oils and reed diffusers, as well as sprays and potpourri to keep every room in the house smelling like fresh-cut blooms, oven-baked bread or a fruit-infused tropical paradise. You're even covered when you're on the go with car fresheners, travel tins and mini portable jar candles optimized for safety. You can dress up bare candles with decorative holders made from ceramic, glass or metal, or you can choose from themed collections that center on various sports, beer and wine, Florentine glass or island tiki.
