Yankee Candle Spring 2016 Review: My Serenity, Peony, Moonlight, Lemongrass & Ginger


Subtle mix of earthy notes is the main chord for Yankee Candle Spring 2016. It's intriguing yet mildly elegant for every day. Almost mystical scents will bring back your serenity and peace. Collection consists out of 4 main scents, all rather fresh and green. Names are pretty unrevealing when it comes to single notes, so keep reading for a more indepth look at each single scent. Jar candles range within 11,90 - 24,90€ while there are also wax melts (1,99€), tealight candles (9,90€) and sampler votive candles (2,60€). Yankee Candles are pretty much available worldwide.

Subtilne mešanice zemeljskih not so glavni akordi za to pomlad pri Yankee Candle. Pomladna kolekcija se namreč bohoti z nežnimi dišavami, ki lahkotno delujejo na naše čutnice. Novi vonji so tako primerni za vsak dan, kot tudi takrat, ko ne želite vsiljivih dišav. Izjema je le zelen del kolekcije Lemongrass & Ginger, ki je dokaj prepoznaven vonj. Za bolj podroben vpogled v vse 4 pomladne vonje pa nadaljujte z branjem. Yankee Candle svečke so na voljo na slovenski spletni strani, na Nazorjevi ulici 6 in Prečni ulici 2 v Ljubljani, Gubčevi 4 v Celju ter v 1001 dar in Svilanit trgovinah. Cene se gibljejo od 11,90€ pa do 24,90€. Voski in vzorčne svečke lahko dobite za 1,99-2,60€. 


Moonlight is a perfect mix of fresh ocean, clean air and warm sandy beaches at night. It's almost coconuty in some sense but still calming and fresh at the base. Main notes are actually bamboo for freshness, woody notes for that deep feel to it and bergamot for a touch of uniqueness. It's also a bit amber-y on my first impression. Truly elegant, sensual and deep. My favourite by far.

Moonlight je čudovita mešanica burnega oceana, svežega morskega zraka in toplih peščenih obal v večernih urah. Na prvi vtis deluje Moonlight celo malce tropsko, s pridihom kokosa, kar pa nikakor ni glavna nota. Namreč, svečka je v osnovi zelo sveža in nenavadno zemeljska. Za to poskrbi bambus, ki doda tisto trohico nenavadnosti. Lesne note poskrbijo za globino in prizemljitev vonja, bergamotka pa za konec poživi s citrusnim odtenkom. Spominja malce tudi na jantar, kar doda svečki eleganco in nevsiljivost. Zdaleč moj oseben favorit.


My Serenity is on the other hand, a bit more optimistic and bright. It screams of citrus notes and merry sunshine with warm tones. It's simply happy. Pear and orange add that first kick of freshness, while tropical flowers and musk add that warmth and exotic feel. It's definitely not a citrus or fruit based candle but rather a balanced combination of warmth, light fruit and freshness. It's universally likable and also so non-specific.

My Serenity je na drugi strani popolno nasprotje Moonlight, ki prizemlji. Ta namreč povzdigne duha, saj je popolnoma sončna, pozitivna in topla dišava, ki se prepleta s sadnimi citrusi. Enostavno je ustekleničena sreča. Topla hruška in pomaranča poskrbita za vedrino in sočnost, tropske cvetlice in mošus pa za toplino ter eksotičnost. Svečka se zdaleč ni tipična sadna ali tropska mešanica, ampak pritajena toplina sreče. Zelo dobro ravnovesje topline, lahkih sadežev in svežine jo naredi zelo enostavno za vsakodnevno uporabo.


Lemongrass & Ginger is a kick-ass burst of citrusy fresh lemongrass and very specific ginger. Literally. I personally like it and I could imagine it to be a wonderful refreshment for kitchens, halls and living rooms. Oh, and it's strong, very strong. With such a sour but warm note, it will uplift your mood and add that extra energy you need. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but rather a bold statement for that special minority.

Lemongrass & Ginger je presenetljiva vzkipljivost sveže kisle limonske trave in zelo močnega ingverja. Čista kombinacija obeh preseneti z močno dišavo, ki ne izveni kar takoj. Za kar je odlična sprememba v kuhinjah, hodnikih in celo dnevnih prostorih. Predvidevam, da lepo zakrije ostale neprijetne vonje. Z močno bazo obeh sestavin deluje vonj zelo kislo svež, obenem pa dokaj orientalski in topel zaradi ingverja. Ker je ingver zelo specifična nota, je tale svečka malce bolj karakterna izbira za manjšino.


Which brings me to the last, but also the most flowery piece, Peony. Who's a better harbinger for spring than beautiful, delicate peony. It's you're not familiar with peony scent, they are truly silky and elegant at the base but also have a green, fresher note to it. It's slightly sweet but still delicately youthful and fragile. Perfect peony scent to fully blossom this spring.

Also don't forget to check out new Summer 2016 collection, which is already out. Three main new scents are delightful: White Tea, Verbena and Vanilla.

Za konec pa še cvetlični doprinos tej kolekciji, Peony. Potonika je verjetno največji znanilec začetka poletja, saj se takrat razbohoti s svojimi nežnimi cvetnimi listi in nežno dišavo. Kakor je potonika nežna cvetlica, je tudi ta svečka mladostna interpretacija cvetličnih not. Z malce bolj svežo in zeleno noto poskrbi za prehod v to nežno pomlad. Malce sladkobe poskrbi za vtis nektarja, vendar je še vedno igriva in sveža. Za vse oboževalce cvetličnih vonjev, je tale svečka nujen nakup. Naj zacveti potonika tudi v vašem domu.

Ker čas hitro beži, je na spletni strani na voljo tudi nova poletna kolekcija Pure Essence, sestavljena iz treh novih vonjev: Vanilla, Verbena in White Tea. Ogledate in naročite jih lahko tukaj.

  4. Moonlight <3 Sveče naravnost obožujem, zato se moram v kakšnih drogerijah kot so to Muller prav zadržati, da nebi kupila kakšne. Odlična objava za nas svečoholike ;P xx

  6. Meni je od vseh vonjev Lemongrass in ginger najljubši. Ostalih se hitro naveličam (še predno mi uspe pokuriti celo voskek tortico), medtem ko ta mi je pa res čudovit.
