Yankee Candle Facebook Fans Say a Riding Mower™ is Dad's Perfect Gift!

Hot sun. Cool breeze. And the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass. 

This is the aroma of Yankee Candle's Riding Mower one of a new collection of fragranced candles designed for and inspired by men. The Man Candle line also includes scents like 2x4™, Man Town™, and First Down™. While their names evoke a smile, their fragrances are as authentic and spot-on as can be expected from the Yankee Candle Company. From the freshly planed wood of 2x4™ to  leathery First Down, one of these candles is sure to ignite fond memories of hanging out in Dad's workshop or watching the game from his favorite recliner. But when asked to choose which among all of these great scents would be the perfect Father's Day gift, facebook fans said, "Why just mow Dad's lawn on Father's Day when you can give him a Riding Mower too!"

The Man Candle line is a limited special edition collection available now in Yankee Candle stores and online. Follow us on facebook!

Honoring a Milestone Birthday With Yankee Candle

The Queen of our family celebrates a milestone!
Even as the United Kingdom is celebrating their monarch this week, our family is honoring our very own queen. This Friday 6/8 marks the 99th birthday of my Nana Ella! Nana is truly the head of our family, presiding over her three daughters, nine grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren with one more on the way. Each of us has spent our own special time with Nana and each has near and dear memories - most spent in the heart of Nana's home, her kitchen. Over the years Nana's kitchen has wafted with both joyous laughter and scrumptious aromas. It was fitting, then, that when we decided to acknowledge Nana's big day with a custom Yankee Candle, we selected fragrances that would fit our memories. We chose heart-warming Home Sweet Home®, spicy Cinnamon Stick, and yummy Be Thankful™. As I lift the lid to smell the candle, my heart fills with love and my mind flows with joyous, happy memories. Happy birthday, Nana!
