  • It has been revealed that Yankee Candle’s scent of the year for 2021 is called Discovery. Because all of us are longing to discover somewhere new and to leave our homes this year after COVID-19 has kept us all confined inside. And, this vibrant and fruity fragrance can help transport us to wherever we are lusting after – whether that be relaxing in a Riad in Morocco or sitting on a caldera in Greece. This scent, Discovery, is Yankee’s third annual Scent of the Year and it’s safe to say that we love it. It’s fruity yet vibrant – and we’re not just talking about the scent when we say vibrant. It’s the perfect burn for spring and summer, in fact we have been burning it at home for over a week now and each time we light it we are impressed. The smell floods each and every room in our home…

    “Knowing that travel may still be out of reach for many this year, the 2021 Scent of the Year, Discovery, was designed to help people fulfil the universal desire to discover new cultures, make new memories, and embrace new connections from the comforts of their homes” Anna Whitton, VP of Marketing for Yankee

    The scent

    What does it smell of? With fruity base notes of starfruit, passion fruit and mango, as well as a vibrant addition of ginger and a subtle vanilla scent for warmth and balance, this candle is uplifting and due to its power, we think it’s perfect for lighting in large rooms. In fact, we’ve been spending the past week lighting it in our home and enjoying every second of it. It has gone from our home office to our bedroom and into our living room.

    The packaging

    Poured inside a large glass vessel that features a pink and yellow decoration, this Yankee candle is anything but boring. It’s different from their other candles in terms of labelling, and this makes it a unique addition to display in your home. The large size means this candle can burn for up to 110 hours.
