I love scented candles. My favorite candles are from Yankee Candle. Are there any other candles out there that are as good? I've never found anything close to the quality or the strong scents.

Hi adouglass, Oh I love scented candles especially a ylangylang one or relaxing lavender, a vanila or winterspice on occassions too. I have never heard of a yankee but do prefer soya candles as they seem to last longer or ones made with beewax. Huggles. Ellie:D

Hi ellie333 I'll try the soya candles. Yankee is a U.S. based company. Check them out online they may ship to the U.K. You won't be disapointed.

I don't have any candles from Yankee Candle, but do have some from Ikea that were quite cheap and have a reasonably strong scent. I also have some gorgeous smelling Betty Crocker candles that I bought from the 99p store and their scent is very strong so they were excellent value for money. My favourite scents are vanilla and lavender :)

I love candles that have inviting, warm scents (i.e. flower scents, flavor scents, etc.)to them versus ones that come around like at Christmas time that are strong and overbearing (i.e. Cinnamon, Peppermint). Those type of candles make me sick. I also love candles that turn to oils and burn as oils.

I'm totally opposite I love the christmas scents. I like some of the flowery scents but I can't stand the sweet scents. Thanks for responding

Not a lot of Candles can stand up to Yankee. I love the Candles there. I have also used Party Light candles, and they aren't too bad. I have also used the black cherry ones from walmart, and believe it or not, they actually smell amazing! I was really surprised for the price! My favorite candle scent of all time, would def. be coconut,pumpkin pie, or sugar cookie!!!!!!!!!

I too was impressed with the cherry candles from Walmart and how awesome they smelled and that they made the whole house smell nice and cherryish!

I love Scentsy Candles as well as Party Lite candles. They both are very good but favoring Scentsy because they are wickless and they smell good. They have tons of different scents.

I don't buy candles anymore since they sell waxwarmers, which have no open flame and still smell wonderful. I love the cranberry flavor cube, but I buy all my wax candles and products from walmart. I'm cheap I guess, but Yankee Candle is expensive even if you buy it from a chain store.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being cheap. I buy things at Walmart also. I don't see any point in buying something that costs more when there are lower priced products that work just as well -- or even if they don't work exactly as well, I'd rather pay a lot less for a little less quality than pay a lot more for a little more quality

I love Yankee Candles and it is a shame that they are rather expensive to buy here in the UK. I have looked on the internet to see if there are any cheap ones that are being sold, but there are not.I tend to buy cheap candles, as they last just as long, or some smell just as good. I do get bought Yankee Candles at christmas from friends and they are a great treat to light up, as well as all the scents are great from this make of candle.

I don't use Yankee Candle. As nice as they smell, they are just too pricey for me. I love Glade candles. I have Cool Serenity & Hawaiian Breeze. They smell so wonderful! When I first got them, I removed the cover, & I could smell it in my bedroom even when I never burned it -- then again, my room is fairly small. But that was over a year ago. I don't smell it as strongly unless I have them lit.

My favorite candle is a soy candle by the 1803 Candle Company. My favorite scent is called "The Weathered Crow". It is a warm cozy vanilla spice mix. I love it!

Hi. adouglass5. Welcome to myLot! Yes, I do love candles. I love Glade candles. Their candles smell so good! I love to smell them during the holidays. I wanted to buy some last year for the holidays but I was short of cash and I could not. Hopefully, I can buy some this year.

Hi there adouglass5, I LOVE my scented candles! I would rather just go to walmart and pick up a candle for way cheaper, then purchase one online! i like the Walmart brand cherry ones, and I like the glad and febreeze ones. My favourite scents are grape, plum, cherry, gingerbread around the holidays, angel whispers, and baked apple pie!

I've gone to a few stores for scented candles, but I think I like getting them from Walmart the most. I like both the scents & the prices (I usually go for the smaller candles). My favorite type of scents are sweet & fruity, with vanilla being my favorite.
