The evening’s are longer and the days are warmer... both good signs that summer is on its way! So, here at Yankee Candle, we’re getting in the mood by burning some of our favourite summer scented candles.
We’ve put together the Q2 collection, with Pineapple Cilantro, Fireside Treats, Honey Blossom and Summer Scoop, to give you a taste of summer in every sense, from evenings around the campfire, through long haul, exotic journeys, to luxury rural retreat and back to the rambunctious British Seaside.
They’re the perfect inspiration if you’re planning the perfect trip, or simply if you want to put your feet up with a book and imagine you’re already there...
Check out our guide to 4 every different perfect summer trips inspired by Yankee Candle summer scents...
Oh we do love to be beside it... Charming and cheeky in equal measure, the British Seaside is synonymous with fish and chips, strolls along the promenade, dodgems and arcades and of course, ice cream cones: deliciously decorated with bubblegum sauce and sprinkles of every colour.
Let Summer Scoop bring the seaside to you. With its delicious scent suggesting creamy, homemade strawberry ice cream, you’ll also travel through time to the heyday of the British beach resort, with flirty floral bunting draping old fashioned tea rooms, long starches of sands waiting for your footprints and fish and chips on the front – straight out of the wrapper!
If we’re dreaming of perfection, we’re going long haul all the way to Hawaii, with pineapples fresh from the tree, as delicious as they are refreshing. And we won’t stop until we’re welcomed with floral lei, ushered on to the nearest beach and told in no uncertain terms to relax!
All of Hawaii’s 6 islands offer distinct, unique opportunities to explore and, on each one, you’ll enjoy breathing in the energising, fresh floral air, being refreshed by warm tranquil waters and enjoying fresh tastes and flavours that you’ll find nowhere else. Pineapple Cilantro is the authentic scent of a tropical paradise, with its citrus cilantro and sweet coconut undertones warming the fresh scent of juicy pineapples. Aloha!
You don’t need to go far to find perfection... the country estates and rural idylls scattered across the British Isles are proof of that. And, as the landed gentry continue to work at making their many acres and stately piles pay, you’ve got your pick of self-catering and luxury hotel accommodation at some of the world’s most exclusive estates.
Of course, exploring the history and culture of these incredible places is fascinating, but what we love most are exploring the gardens. Perfectly planned and lovingly tended, you’ll discover some beautiful blooms set among follies and walled gardens – ideal on a warm sunny afternoon when you can sit outside with a cream tea and drink in the tranquillity. Honey Blossom is the perfect substitute on work and rainy days, bringing the outside in with its blend of flower nectar, honey musk, freesia and woodlands.
Picture it: warm, sunny afternoon, gentle breeze, cool meadow, kids running around laughing, dipping their toes in a little stream, and as the sun sets, you all gather around the fire and enjoy some high quality family time.
Bliss? And now that camping has all grown up into glamping, you can enjoy all the fun of the outdoors with none of the drudge. These days, you don’t even have to pitch a tent or wriggle into a sleeping bag if you really don’t want to. Across Europe, particularly where the sun shines brighter, they’re embracing camping and bringing it into the 21st century with quirky, luxurious accommodation. We’re talking everything from treehouses to geodesic domes, yurts and beautifully refurbished Airstreams.
If you fancy taking the family to France and sharing stories by the light of the fire... get them all in the mood with Fireside Treats with its sweet fragrance of gooey, toasted marshmallows.
