New Smells

DAY 97

I'm seriously in LOVE!!!

A couple weeks ago the hubbs and I stopped by the local book store on our way home from a day out and about. After about a hour of wondering around looking through way to many cook books & magazines we finally decided on one called "Southern Living dinner in a dish". We sometimes spend way to much time at the book stores but I love it. When we went to check out I noticed a shelf with Yankee Candles on it. I did what everyone else does and spent the next 5 minutes smelling all of them. I absolutely LOVE Yankee candles but I only buy them from the PX because they are a little cheaper there. I can't bring myself to pay $30+ dollars for a candle, even if it is going to make my home smell super pretty. However I found a sent that I hadn't seem before and couldn't stop sniffing it, it smelt so good. I had told the hubbs a few weeks back that I wasn't going to buy any more candles till we went through all the ones we had at home. Seriously I have a ton that I brought with me from Hawaii plus what we've purchased here. I'm really wanted this one but I kept telling myself no, even though it had a 50% off sticker on it. Finally after much convincing from the hubbs I gave in and got it.
I decided that I HAD to finish and burn out the three candles I had downstairs before I started on this one. This weekend I did just that and tossed all three jars. Tonight when I went to light the candles I remembered I never put a new one out.  It wasn't a hard decision on which one I was going to go for I had to break in my newest addition.
I'm pretty sure that this one's from their Holiday selection from the name "Cherries On Snow". OMG its my new favorite, I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to top this one. It smells so yummy and that's one thing I love about Yankee candles, they really smell how you smell them when they aren't lit. (if that makes any sense at all lol)
There's a Yankee Candle store here at one of our local malls and I'm thinking this weekend I might take a drive over there to see if they have any in stock. I really don't want to have to wait till next Christmas to get another Cherries On Snow candle that would just be so sad. :( lol

Whats your favorite candle sent ?!? Are you as much of a Yankee fan as me ?!?

OMG, yea I totally know what you mean, I really like Yankee Candles and they do last a long time so I justify it. hehe. Yumm "cherries on snow" sounds like a really nice one. I think my fave would have to be honeydew or birthday cake. hehe
