For The Home: My Yankee Candle Fetish Plus Giveaway

I love me a good smelling candle and no candle lover in their right mind will turn down a Yankee Candle . If and when I can get them at a bargain I certainly will buy them because they last a long time and there is no doubt, you definitely get what you pay for. The smell lights up the whole house without being over powering.

I recently had a chance to try out two new Yankee Candle fragrances called “Oceanside” and “Pink Dragon Fruit”.

I maybe weird in that I like different parts of my house to have a certain type of smell . For instance my bedroom has to have that grown and sexy scent while my living room has more of a fruit welcoming type scent. My kitchen usually has some kind of candle that mimics a baked good scent.

When I received the two candles in the mail I did my test sniff and automatically knew that the Pink Dragon Fruit would be my living room scent and Oceanside was definitely a bedroom scent.

Pink Dragon Fruit:

This scent smells awesome . It provides about 100 or more hours of burning time and has a wonderful tropical fruit smell. I was alittle hesitant to try it because I have a thing about tropical fruit smells. I have ran into candles that try hard to give off that tropical fruit smell but it winds up smelling like that cheap fruit candle you find at the local dollar store. Luckily Pink Dragon Fruit reminds me of a good piece of tropical fruit candy with a twist of girliness. It smells so good and not cheap at all.


This scent definitely has the ocean breeze vibe going on . Yankee Candle mentions a citrus smell which is definitely in there but not over powering. I love that this reminds me more of a Cotton scented candle with the ocean mixed in yet has a definite romantic smell to it. It lights up my bedroom and ever after I have blown the candle out for the night , the smell still lingers.

Each candle is listed as burning 110-150 hours and from prior use that is definitely true. I sometimes leave these candles burning all day and they still have lasted for months afterwards.
