Yankee Candle® QuickScent™ - Fast, Affordable, & Worth Every Scent!

I just left wintry Massachusetts and went to Waikiki Beach and it took just a few minutes! In fact, in less time than it took to write this sentence, I smelled the lush Hawaiian scent in the air and in my mind's eye Don Ho was draping a lei around my neck while I sipped a fresh pineapple drink. My trip to paradise came courtesy of new QuickScent™ quick melting candle by Yankee Candle® in scrumptious Pineapple Cilantro!

QuickScent™ is really one of the most exciting products I've seen launched at Yankee Candle. We've taken everyone's most beloved fragrances and put them in a form that can deliver nearly instantaneous gratification. The scent permeates the air almost immediately and then lingers for the duration of the wax which burns for about 3 hours. This is THE product for those of us who need fragrance but have busy lives. I get home from work, light my QuickScent™ and immediately get that warm, homey, true-to-life fragrance that only Yankee Candle can deliver.

Yankee Candle® QuickScent™ is made for my lifestyle - it's fast, affordable, and worth every scent!

QuickScent™ Quick Melting Candles are now available in more than a dozen best-loved fragrances at all Yankee Candle Company retail stores, on our website, and at gift and home stores nationwide.

Yankee Candle Gives Me the Extra for Ordinary Days

My sisters laugh when they hear me describe my little family as a "fourth quarter family" but it really is true. We live our most celebratory days - all our birthdays, our wedding anniversary, and favorite holidays - in the months of November and December. From Halloween through New Year's Day it seems that there is a special occasion nearly every week. We are living in such a fast paced style in those months that January's ordinary days seem to bring us to a crashing halt. That's when I consciously take a moment to breathe and appreciate the little things in life: the clear blue sky against the snow white landscape, the luxury of sipping tea under a snuggly blanket, and a fresh new Yankee Candle scent. You see it's all of these "extra" things that turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary day.

Nine extraordinary new Yankee Candle fragrances (Soft Blanket™, Pink Sands™, Bahama Breeze™, Fluffy Towels™, Pink Lady Slipper, Country Lemonade, Orange Dreamsicle, Garden Hideaway™, and Midnight Oasis™) are now available at all Yankee Candle Company retail stores, on our website, and at gift and home stores nationwide.

Daydreaming with New Orange Dreamsicle by Yankee Candle

What a day for a daydream! Having dug our way out of the 20" of snow that blew in yesterday, I am definitely dreaming of sunnier and warmer days. We New Englanders are made of a hearty stock, but days like yesterday make me truly appreciate the dog days of summer. And nothing says summer quite like a cool frosty treat. Do you remember hearing the music of the ice cream truck when you were growing up? The sound was faint at first and you didn't know whether it was on the street behind yours or if it was just around the corner. With adrenalin pumping, you ran inside to beg for money to buy a treat. Then you stood in line with the other neighborhood kids to see just what tasty treat the money in your fist would buy. Maybe, just maybe, you had enough to buy an Orange Dreamsicle: the perfect combination of effervescent orange and rich creamy vanilla. The fragrant glow of new Orange Dreamsicle by Yankee Candle whisks me away from the frozen landscape outside my window and I can wile away the rest of winter dreaming of warm summer days. Wait, I think I just heard the ice cream truck!

Find Orange Dreamsicle and up to 8 other new Yankee Candle fragrances at all Yankee Candle Company retail stores, on our website, and at gift and home stores nationwide.
