One of the most popular musicals of all time, The Sound of Music is a beautiful story of love set in the magnificent Austrian Alps. Julie Andrews stars as Maria, a young nun who leaves an Austrian Convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval Officer. 


When times are gloomy, Maria loves to fill her mind with some of her favourite things, day dreaming of such things as ‘raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens.’


Last year, Yankee Candle created a collection of candles inspired by the Rodger & Hammerstein song, My Favourite Things from The Sound of Music. The five fabulous fragrances from the Yankee Candle collection include:


Bright Copper Kettles  - Bark, clove buds, allspice and nutmeg
Blue Satin Sashes – Lavender, rosemary with notes of citrus, jasmine and soft woods
Crisp Apple Strudel – Tart apples and brown sugar
Moon on their Wings – Bergamot pepper, sage and a touch a cedar
Raindrops on Roses – Rose petals showered with dew
Warm Woollen Mittens – Notes of lemon, apple, lily & musk


We are now pleased to introduce 3 NEW LIMITED EDITION FRAGRANCES to the ‘My Favourite Things’ collection, currently available from


Whiskers On Kittens – Gentle nuzzle of sandalwood and vanilla musk
Schnitzel With Noodles – Creamy noodles seasoned with herbs and black peppercorn
Brown Paper Packages – Powdery fresh scent with a hint of spiciness


The Limited Edition candles are available to all customers while supplies last. To recapture nostalgic childhood memories of The Sound of Music and fill your home with beautiful Yankee Candle scents buy My Favourite Things by Yankee Candle now before it’s too late!
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things


Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things


Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favourite things


When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad


My Favourtie Things Lyrics by Maria from The Sound of Music
