Yankee Candle Christmas 2014 - ALL Festive Candles

Yankee Candle is on a killer struck every single Christmas. Not only they re-release some of the cult, traditional favourites but they always leave us speechless with new festive scents. If you usually hesitate buying Yankee Candles due to the price, now is the perfect time to treat yourself and embrace Christmas spirit. In December, there are also 2 festive scents that are 25% off. But speaking about new, this time around they've added 4 NEW Christmas scents to the collection. Who doesn't want to experience Angel's Wings, smell fresh Icicles, dream about Candy Cane Lane and drinking tea with family under Christmas Garland?

SLO
Yankee Candle so najverjetneje najbolj vroča roba v tem letnem času. Božič vzbuja lepe spomine tudi z dišavami, kar navdihne Yankee Candle, da vestno pripravi omejeno božično kolekcijo vsako leto. Priče smo lahko tako starim, že skoraj tradicionalnim vonjem kot tudi novim vonjavam, ki nas preprosto vedno navdušijo.Če se ponavadi izognete nakupu teh sveč zaradi cene, potem je Božič najprimernejši čas za preizkus prazničnega vonja. Ko smo ravno pri vonjih za 2014, je Yankee Candle ustvaril 4 čisto nove vonje. Kdo si ne želi poleteti na angelskih krilih (Angel's Wings), zavohati svežih ledenih sveč (Icicles), sanjati o deželi sladkarij (Candy Cane Lane) in piti v družbi dišečih venčkov (Christmas Garland)?


Sticking to golden oldies from past, there are a few you just can miss out.
Favoriti in vsakoletni tradicionalni vonji so vsekakor vredni ogleda.

Christmas Cookie is almost a classic scent and smells like a fresh vanilla cookie. Oh no, and that's not all. You can definitely detect strong vanilla, cookie dough and lots of butter which makes quite a believable scent. Foodies and vanilla fans will absolutely enjoy burning this candle. Yummy!

Christmas Cookie je klasična vonjava iz kuhinje, ki je nepogrešljiva v tem času. Diši po slastnem vanilijevem piškotu, vendar sam vonj še zdaleč ni tako enostaven. Nedvomno se naprej zavoha močno vanilijo, na kar se pridružijo note piškota in veliko masla. To ustvari dokaj realistčen in maslen vonj, ki bo verjetno všeč čisto vsakemu sladokuscu. Vonj se močno priporoča vsem, ki obožujejo vanilijo in vonj po sladicah.

Snowflake Cookie, a new addition from last year, is similar to Christmas Cookie but definitely different enough to own them both. It is a lot more ''baked cookie'' if you know what I mean. I can detect a gingerbread cookie dough that was already baked. In addition, they added tingy lemon peel and sugar frosting which makes it complex and sweet at the same time. Not to mention the adorable pastel pink which makes a lovely decoration.

Snowflake Cookie je nov vonj lanskega leta, ki je tako slasten, da se je enostavno pridružil ostalim najpopularnejšim božičnim vonjem. Na hitro je podoben Christmas Cookie, vendar ima dodatne note ki ga ločijo od maslenega piškota. Vonj je nedvomno podoben bolj '' dobro zapečenemu piškotu'', ki skoraj spominja na medenjake. Dodana je še limonina lupinica in sladkorna polivka, ki naredita vonjavo kompleksno in sladko. Naj omenim še očarljivo pastelno roza barvo in prelep izgled, ki lahko krasno služi kot dekoracija.

Season of Peace, another new scent from last year that made it into bestselling category. This scent is quite complex and difficult to fully explain. Let me start with the basics. It's definitely a fresh, cooling scent supposedly created from white musk. Now, this is Yankee Candle's interpretation that doesn't explain much. To me, it smells like baby powder that's sweet enough to call it a light, airy perfume. It's like your favorite grandma that always smells fresh, clean and sweet. To make it even more unique, it gives warmth although there's a hidden note of peppermint. It's a perfect interpretation of  new, peaceful snow at dusk and warming feeling under your favorite blanket. Truly unique scent in my book, I highly suggest to give it a sniff.

Season of Peace je prav tako lanski vonj, ki si je zaslužil ostati še letos. Vonj je zelo raznolik in kompleksen, zato je težko izpostaviti lastnosti. Osnova je nedvomno sveža in čista komponenta iz belega mošusa. Če ga opišemo po znanih vonjavah, je podoben otroškemu pudru z dodatkom sladkobe in vendar dovolj sofisticiran, da bi ga uporabili kot nežen ženski parfum. Season of Peace je kot najljubša babica, ki vedno diši sveže, čisto in sladko. Kar ga loči od ostalih svežih vonjev je tudi to, da poda topel spomin kljub skriti noti poprove mete. Je odličen primer sveže snežne odeje, medtem ko ste toplo zaviti v najljubšo odejo. Nedvomno eden izmed najbolj posebnih vonjev.


NEW Scents for 2014
NOVA Vonja za 2014

Angel's Wings is a strange mixture of sweet and fresh. Yet, I can see it as another cult favorite or a failure since it has so versatile and unique notes. I can easily detect milled rum sugar (for baking rolls) and vanilla in the background. However, the crisp fresh air and white flowers make whole lot a difference to separate it from kitchen scents. Combination is out of this world so I can totally relate to the name. It is really hard to describe but not everyone will like this all-rounder.

Angel's Wings je zelo nenavadna mešanica sladkega in svežega. Ta sveča je lahko ena izmed najpopularnejših to sezono ali pa pogrne na sami priljubljenosti, saj ima zelo specifične in edinstvene note. Z lahkoto se zavonja nekaj, podobno zmletemu rumovemu sladkorju in vanilijo v ozadju. Čist svež zrak in beli cvetovi poskrbijo, da se sveča loči od ostalih. Kombinacija je skoraj nezemeljska, kar je v popolnem skladju z imenom. Mogoče bi bil ta vonj popoln kot božično darilo, saj zajema tako sladke kot tudi sveže note.


Icicles isn't my first choice just because I don't like true, fresh scents. Bitter and fresh note from the nature, a travel mug of chamomile tea in your hands and fresh clothing on you is a perfect way to describe this scent. It is fresh enough to refreshen your rooms but still mild enough to be fairly neutral. There's also a tiny hint of pine in the background.

Icicles sicer ni prva izbira na mojem seznamu, ker je dokaj svež vonj. Najboljši opis tega vonja bi zajemal zelene note iz narave, potovalno skodelico s kamiličnim čajem v roki in sveže oprana oblačila, ki jih nosiš. Je sveža dovolj, da osveži notranje prostore vendar dovolj mila, da je nevtralna in nemoteča. Zazna se tudi majhen del borovca v ozadju.


Golden oldies from previous collections and staples for Christmas
Še dva stalna vonja iz prejšnjih božičnih kolekcij

Christmas Eve is truly a traditional candle that simply makes you happy. What would you expect from a Christmas Eve candle? I sure do expect warmth, evoked memories with family. expectation and lots of great food. How to put everything into a single candle? Well, Yankee Candle mastered the formula to the level, that I wasn't even expecting. It hit me with surprise and brought back memories. It gives warmth, coziness and happiness. It's sweet yet complex. I'm detecting glazed plums, Christmas tea, mulled wine, dried fruits, a pinch of cinnamon and fireplace - all at once. A perfect combination along with your family members. Those of you who are familiar with Lush, this scent bottles entire Lush store scent, literally.

Christmas Eve je ustekleničena praznična sreča. Kaj bi Vi pričakovali od sveče, ki se imenuje predbožični večer? Verjetno notranjo toplino, vzbujeni spomini, vznemirjenje in veliko dobre hrane. Kako vse to spraviti v eno samo svečo? Yankee Candle obvlada pravi recept do te mere, da še preseneti z nemogočim. Vonj enostavno preseneti s sunkom in doprinese spomine na otroštvo. Poda toplino, srečo z sladkim, kompleksnim vonjem. Zazna se glazirana sliva, božični čaj, kuhano vino, suho sadje, ščepec skoraj neprepoznavnega cimeta in na nek način kamin - vse v enem. Čudovita kombinacija, vredna prižiga na predbožični večer.

Red Apple Wreath contains juicy, crisp apples along with fresh green notes, walnuts and a tiny dash of cinnamon. There's also maple syrup in the background to make candle even more versatile in every department. So basically, anyone will love this scent. It's freshly green, juicy and fruity because of apples and sweet due to maple and walnuts. I do enjoy it very much.

Red Apple Wreath vsebuje čvrsta, sočna jabolka s svežim zelenjem, orehi in ščepcem cimeta. Vključen je tudi javorjev sirup, ki doda sladkobo in vsestranskost. Vsak bo vzljubil ta preprost, a mamljiv vonj. Je nekako novejša verzija vedno priljubljenega Macintosh.


Other NEW Scents 2014

Christmas Garland is on the other hand quite a straight forward scent. A true green pine scent and a dash of cranberry to light up festive feel. I could easily imagine this candle to be a perfect addition to artificial tree. Fresh pine scent is pretty believable true Christmas tree scent. Cranberries provide a tea note to make your home cozy.

Christmas Garland je zelo enostaven vonj iz dveh komponent. Zeleni bor in pest brusnic vzbudita praznično vzdušje z pridihom borove dekoracije. Sveča je tako nepogrešljiva za tiste, ki so se izognili pobiranju iglic z prave smreke, vendar pogrešajo vonj pravega iglavca. Brusnice dodajo vonj po čaju in naredijo prostor bolj domač. 


Candy Cane Lane is my ultimate pick for 2014, especially since we're generally missing peppermint scents. I'm absolutely in love with anything minty, especially if it's combined with something sweet. Candy Cane Lane supposedly created a mixture of sweet peppermint, sweet cookies and creamy vanilla icing. Does it sound yummy enough? Sure does, there's no bitterness and enough sweetness of cookies to make it appropriate for every day. I can also detect a hint of white chocolate but that's only due to vanilla icing. Candle has quite a powerful smell so I suggest you sniffing it last.

Candy Cane Lane je moja osebna najljubša novost za 2014, predvsem ker primanjkuje vonjev z poprovo meto. Je čudovita mešanica sladkega piškota in mete. Predvsem se zazna vanilijeva polivka, v ozadju pa se zaznajo piškoti. Vonj nima prisotne grenkobe in hkrati spominja na belo čokolado s pepermintom. Candy Cane Lane ima zelo močen vonj, zato priporočam, da se povonja zadnji.

 Let me re-phrase introduction: You need to try one or two Yankee Candle Christmas scents, at least a wax tart. There's something magical about Christmas and I'm a true believer scents are a part of the experience too. The thing is, brain automatically store memories with scents that's why I'm so attached to certain smells. Everyone has a different taste and basis (past experiences) so I suggest you picking out a scent, that makes you happy, nostalgic and appreciative. Yankee Candles are sold worldwide online and in specific stores. 

Če še enkrat povzamem vse skupaj, bi vsekakor bil greh da ne preizkusite vsaj enega ali dva omamna vonja, četudi samo prevohate novosti. V času Božiča je v zraku nekaj magičnega in verjamem, da si zapomnimo lepe trenutke tudi preko vonja. Vsak obožuje nekaj drugega in ima svoje pretekle izkušnje, zato izbirajte po lastnem okusu. Res so te sveče razkošje, vendar odlične za občasno razvajanje duše. Yankee Candle se prodajajo na spletni strani (tukaj), Nazorjevi 12, Cityparku in Prečni ulici 2 v Ljubljani. Prav tako so na voljo na Gubčevi 4 v Celju in Citycenter Celje.

  6. Jaz sem se z njihovim svečkami v 'živo' srečala šele lani, ko sem jih odkrila v Europarku - v Svilant trgovini, kot je že Sabina napisala. :)
    Najbolj mi je bila všeč Cranberry Ice, Season of Peace in Soft Blanket. <3 To zadnjo sem si tudi edino privoščila v kozarčku. :P Drugače pa kupujem te majhne verzije, ki niso v kozarčku ali pa voske.
    Jih pa kurim v božičnem času in v izpitnem obdobju, ker me tak fajn pomirijo. :)

    Krasne fotke, čisto vse svečke me mikajo. <3
