I looooved Vanilla Cupcake. It was so good, I wanted to eat it! Tea and Honey was nice too. Autumn Leaves really did smell like Autumn Leaves!

That's all I can remember for now.

I liked the smell of Autumn Wreath....leaves was a bit too floral smelling for me.
And spiced cocoa and Cinnamon Appleberry.

Did you all see the new line of Farmer's Market? So pretty.
(A hint I got from a salesperson....the smaller jar is actually a better deal. The larger only burns for about 5 hours more...I think it was 30 and 35).

Ooh, I forgot about Spiced Cocoa, that one was good! I wanted to drink it!

I always feel like I gain about ten pounds in Yankee Candle. :rotfl:

I am in!! :yay: :yay: I will be sending my PM soon! I just looked at the Yankee site and saw the Back by Popular Demand section! Anyone have Apple Cider or Fireside? :cloud9: They both sound wonderful and I think I might order the jars before the exchange so that I dont miss out. :guilty:

Meriweather
08-25-2006, 09:37 AM
I've had Apple Cider....very nice.
Fireside....ick!! Smells like ashes to me ;)

Oh no! Ashes?? Its funny I like to burn my favorite food scents in the kitchen obviously and then keep the Autumn Wreath, Trick or Treat, Holiday Bayberry type scents for the living room. I just thought that Fireside would be great. :guilty:

Meriweather
08-25-2006, 11:00 AM
Well, I guess fireside and ashes go together.
You need to try it yourself....we all have different tastes.
I rotate my scents by season :teeth:
Almost time to change to Sept ones :hyper:

Meriweather

No hurry.

List them all :rotfl: More for your sender to pick from.

I limited mine to fall scents, but it is still pretty long.

Don't forget also, if you have a preference in the type, to list that also.
I know we have a lot of tart lovers here ::yes::

I was in YC today and the sales persdon told me the Farmers Market Jars only burn down the middle, the outside doesn't melt. She said you can put a viotive inside when the original is done.

I bought the maple sugar and the apple/berry tarts. They were too cute to pass up. And Maple Sugar is sold out at the store except the tarts.

Meriweather
08-27-2006, 01:09 PM
Yes, they were burning them last time I went to the YC store.
They keep the pretty fruit and stuff around the outside. They had a tea light going inside.
The large ones burn 35 hours and the smaller 30, so I was told the smaller are a better deal.
I want some ::yes:: And since there is a coupon burning a hole in my purse, I think I might have to go and get a couple ;)

Gymbomom
08-27-2006, 04:02 PM
I saw the Farmer's Market wax potpourri in the catalog......
do those burn like the tarts???

08-28-2006, 12:02 PM
Hey Nancy, rememebr where I said I would be interested in Spiced Cocoa, but hadn't had a chance to sniff test it yet because the nearest YC store is in Phoenix. I just found out that YC opened a store in a high end (think Talbots, Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, etc) mall less than 10 miles from my house!!!

Oh, this could be dangerous.

On the flip side, I don't have to rely on Linens-N-Things or Bed, Bath and Beyond or the YC website for exchanges anymore!! :hyper:

Meriweather
08-28-2006, 12:06 PM

Me too! How exciting ..... Was in YC justthe other day and another special they have going (incase no one else mentioned it...) Hourse warmers (plug ins and refills) are buy one get one free! They are pretty pricy, so this is a good time to buy for sure! Not sure how long the sale lasts but worth passing on! :wave:

A perfect time for a great sale, just need my excgabgee and likes and I will be able to ship it from online.

I LOVE the Buttercream, Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Caramenl and chocolate and coffees. They make me kinda hungry tho! One day I had butter cream melting and my son came in, looked all over and said what are you cooking, mom? WHere's the cake?

I didn't know that. I wish they did. Most stores do...like Bath and Body, etc.
Bummer!!!

You have to choose sale or coupon.

I went to YC this afternoon as I needed Cherry Lemonade votives for my DD baby shower favors tomorrow. I stocked up on the votives I needed along with tarts, and a Spiced Cocoa jar candle and a chocolate chip/buttercream swirl candle.

I got the sale prices and asked if they would take the coupon. They were more than happy to accept it. So I ended up getting a great deal. :cool1: :cool1:

Can't wait for name day!! :woohoo:

We thought the Cherry Lemonade votives would make a nice shower favor since they are pink and DD is having a girl. I made my own labels for them and then wrapped them in tulle.

I LOVE the spiced cocoa. They smell so wonderful. My DH says they are one of his new favorites.

It's funny, he's the one who first bought me a YC for Christmas several years ago and got me hooked so he can't complain too much when I hit the store. ;)

Meriweather
08-31-2006, 11:33 PM
LOL....I will have to check out the Spiced Cocoa next week when I go to the store.
I loved the Peppermint Cocoa....miss it.

My DD got me started on them when she worked at a local craft store.....years ago.
They used to give out the "bad" ones as door prizes at their store meetings.
