**Product received for review. All thoughts are my own.
Is there a scent that always takes you back to another time and place? Perhaps it's a familiar perfume or laundry soap that a loved one used all the time. Perhaps the smell of a favorite family dish. Even the soft scent of baby soap can take us back to our little ones as a baby. It truly is amazing how a simple scent has the ability to remind us of moments and feelings!
If I had to choose my favorite type of scent, it would be Christmas- hands down. The warm cinnamon, the hints of pine or peppermint, the cranberry deliciousness... I love these smells not just during the holiday season but throughout the year whenever I need a little extra Christmas cheer! And of course, when it comes to candles, there is none greater than Yankee Candles!
Today, I'm excited to share a unique Christmas collection that is sure to have you singing: the Sound of Music Collection!
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the classic The Sound of Music this year, Yankee Candle is bringing back the My Favorite Things Limited Edition Collection. This whimsical line, based on song lyrics by Rodgers & Hammerstein, features three returning fan favorites and one new addition: Do Re Mi.
Do Re Mi–A bright scent with notes of jasmine, wild berries and cedar wood—up and down the scale, it stays fresh.
Whiskers on Kittens™–A sweet scent with a gentle nuzzle of sandalwood and vanilla musk.
Crisp Apple Strudel™–An Austrian favorite ... golden and sugared on the outside, tart apples and brown sugar on the inside.
Warm Woolen Mittens™–Just cleaned and warmed by the stove ... a cozy scent with notes of lemon, apple, lily and musk.
Now, as much as I love tradition Christmas scents, I could not help but fall in love! 'My Favorite Things' is a fantastic holiday song, but gives us some unique variations to burn rather than the typical cinnamon and mints and pines! I could not wait to experience them for myself! I was thrilled to be given the chance to do so with two of these great scents- Crisp Apple Strudel and Warm Woolen Mittens!
Of the two, Crisp Apple Strudel is certainly my favorite and the most traditionally Fall/Christmas! I cannot say that I've ever made an apple strudel myself, but it certainly smells how I would imagine one to smell...and makes me want to get in the kitchen and start baking!
Warm Woolen Mittens is far from a traditional scent... but it definitely is a cozy one! It has a fresh scent, like laundry just out of the dryer- that will make you want to snuggle up with someone you love!
What I love about these two scents is just what I love about the song they come from. It may be a song that is played often at Christmastime and that suits the season... but its truly great for year round as well! The candles are just the same... not overtly Christmas so that they can be left out any time of year!
This is the perfect gift for anyone on your list that loves The Sound of Music...or just candles in general! You truly cannot go wrong with these great gifts! Find them now at your favorite Yankee Candle retailers or online! See more from Yankee Candle and connect at the links below:
