This spring, Yankee Candle is inviting fans to think back on fond times, giving them the power to select which of its popular candles from the past they want to bring back.

The exciting new campaign 'Chosen By You' will see the nation vote between 12 of the most-loved Yankee Candle fragrances from seasons past. With each individual vote whittling the options down to just eight, all set for relaunch for summer 2021.
