I was originally introduced to Yankee Candles via a catalog from a co-worker before they were ever really introduced in the area. I ordered a small votive of their vanilla scent to try them out. I am always hesitant to try out new candle companies because I find that a lot of the scents give me a headache. I was pleased with the scent and quality of the Yankee Candle. Much to my delight, they opened a store at Jefferson Point and I have been hooked ever since! They have so many different scents and products to make your home and car smell yummy. My personal fave is Macintosh Apple, but my husband really likes Ocean Water (he is from the coast and it reminds him of home). The candles are long lasting and the scent is never over powering.
