I am a HUGE fan of Yankee Candle products! I love them because they always smell great when they are burning (not just in the jar). Most candles out there only smell good in the jar then you light them up and they have little or no smell at all when they are burning. For years now, I have asked for Yankee Candles as gifts during the holidays, for birthdays, Mother’s day, etc. The main reason I don’t usually buy them myself is that they are expensive .
My daughter Coral used to date a guy whose mother always burned Slatkin & Co. candles in her home. Slatkin and Co. candles are sold at Bath and Body Works. At first I didn’t believe that any candle could, well, hold a candle to the way Yankee Candle smell when they burn. Turns out, I was wrong. Slatkin & Co Bath and Body Works candles smell GREAT when they burn and they tend to be a little cheaper than the Yankee Candle prices.
Right now, Yankee Candles “medium tumbler” candles (they are 12.5 oz) are $22.99 on the Yankee Candle site. The same “tumbler” type candle over at Bath and Body works is 14.5 oz and the regular price is $19.50. That is a few dollars cheaper than the price of Yankee Candle and it is 2 oz more candle! In addition, last week I got TWO of these candles by Slatkin & Co. for $20 ! That is $10 each! I have never seen Yankee Candles priced this low! Apparently Bath and Body Works is even offering the same deal on Slatkin & Co. candles on their website too!
While I would NEVER turn down a Yankee Candle, it is nice to know that there are other options out there that smell just as fabulous!
