There’s nothing better than a clean home filled with scents that conjure up past memories, create a homebase for happy times, and offer that cozy, warm-at-home feeling. One of the easiest ways to freshen up your living space is with a slow-burning candle, and Yankee Candle has some of the best scents in all the land. Fill your home with the scent of your dreams with these five Yankee Candle scents that will blow your mind.

Lavender Vanilla

Lavender is a scent you need in your life. The ideal scent to set a relaxing tone, this Lavender Vanilla candle is perfect for a before-bedtime ritual or bath time favorite. Be warned, a relaxed state will follow once you light this calming scent.

Balsam & Cedar

OK, maybe this one can be considered a Christmas tree in a jar. But who doesn’t love the smell of Christmas trees? And who says it’s frowned upon to have your house smell like one year-round? The pine balsam, cedar, and sandalwood are matched with a hint of vanilla and a touch of citrus to make this holiday candle smell oh so good – holiday season or not.

Clean Cotton

For that “just cleaned” scent, Clean Cotton offers floral and woody undertones with just a hint of lemon, that make this candle the perfect addition to your living room, bedroom, or kitchen. It’s a simple scent that’s reminiscent of a fresh load of laundry, which as you know, always brings on a smile.

Awaken - The 2020 Scent of the Year

Designed to inspire you to experience the simple beauties of the everyday, this one-of-a-kind crystalline mineral fragrance has grounding notes of driftwood and amber, a winning combination you will never forget. With top notes like crisp and clean notes, sheer peony, and crystal freesia, and base notes like white amber and patchouli, you’ll drift off to a state of pure inspiration once you light the flame on Awaken.

Sage & Citrus

Our go-to kitchen candle, this earthy scent somehow manages to capture the essence of “home.” With some citrus notes, lavender, and musk, this curious scent will leave you wanting more every time.

Fill your home with scents you love, that will keep you invigorated day or night. Try out these five Yankee Candle scents to freshen up your space and give life to your sense of smell. For more lifestyle tips, check out our blog.
