A Recipe Book by Yankee Candle


A few months ago, DC's mother told me about Yankee Candles' Fragrance Mixology - the art of combining fragrances to create a whole new scent, and then for my birthday, she kindly gave me this as a gift, A Recipe Book by Yankee Candle.

The 'book' contains 12 votive sampler candles; you may have seen the festive fragrance Recipe Book around Christmastime, but the one I received is full of Autumnal, foody scents.


I know that it is currently Springtime (well, it is supposed to be, anyway!) and fresh, fruity fragrances are popular, but these particular scents are incredibly rich and very homely so they will be a pleasure to burn whatever the time of year. There is a combination of strong, spicy scents and creamy, sweet ones too. Cinnamon, ginger and spices seem to be the key ingredients, and these are accentuated by vanilla and cream, and not forgetting the zesty touches of cranberry, lemon and oranges.

After being told about Fragrance Mixology, I tried and tried to find suggestions for which candles to burn together, but I just couldn't find any specific to this set. So this means I have to be creative and attempt my own combinations. After days and days of sniffing and trying to make up my mind, I have come up with my mixtures...


I have tried to keep to a balance of spicy and sweet (apart from the final combination which is purely indulgent sweetness - the one I can't wait to try but leaving until last!) So far, I have burned one of these mixes and I will be posting more information on this sometime this week, so keep your eyes peeled for that one (and your nose ready too!)
