When people think of me, I'm sure there's certain words that they associate with me. Vegan, crazy cat lady, Halloween, cleaning, and candles/smell good things. I make my own candles (though I haven't done that in awhile), but for all of my other candle and smell good needs, Yankee Candle is my go to.
Back when I first went vegan, I remember looking up to ensure that I could still use Yankee Candle, and I was thrilled that I still could. The blogger who posted this on the website I read was from 2012, and we're halfway through 2017. I wanted to get an update from Yankee Candle that they are still, in fact, vegan and cruelty free. So, I reached out to them via email, asking very specifically if they were still vegan and cruelty free, and if that pertains to all of their products, if not, please specify which ones are. I received a response not even a day later, which was a bonus to me, that their customer service is that prompt in responding to emails and questions. Props to them for that.
So, my fellow vegans, please REJOICE with me as Yankee Candle can still be our go to for the best candles around (in my opinion, of course!) With their Halloween collection coming out, and their Boney Bunch being released soon too, Yankee is going to take all of my money.
Make sure you're signed up for their emails, because they often send coupons. This was my most recent haul.
Their Easy Melt cups for their Scenterpieces are my favorites. They had them for buy one get two free, that's $5.99 for 3 of them, which equals approximately $1.99 per cup, which is a steal. Their Candy Corn scented Fragrance Spheres are my jam, and I use them in my car year round, and of course, they were also on sale. The small Pumpkin Buttercream candle, a personal favorite of mine, was only $5. Lastly, their full size Warm Upside Down Pineapple Cake candle, a new fragrance they just released, was $15 with your purchase, and it smells AWESOME. Basically, all of this was a steal. And when they have their semi annual sale, twice a year, look out, because I go hard, and often save 75%+ on my purchases.
You can't really see, but I have a Halloween spider web Scenterpiece I got during their latest semi annual sale, was only like $8 I think, maybe less, and originally it's like almost $30. This one has a 3, 6, and 9 hour timer. It shuts off after the selected time you chose, it lights up (not brightly so It doesn't interrupt at night), and it doesn't get very hot, which makes me feel safe using it around my cats. They don't go near it anyway, but still.
I'm currently using another new scent they just released, Sugared Pumpkin Swirl, and it's quickly become one of my new favorites. It smells like sugared pumpkin puree, with a little honey, caramel, and vanilla drizzle, and a little tiny bit woodsy. I'm obsessed, and you will be too.
Happy Yankee Candling, my friends!
