Mother's Day Gift Guide - Y.Collection New York from Yankee Candles

 I've always loved burning candles.  For me, they are more than simply a way to make my house smell pretty. I love gazing into the flame and feeling the power of the element of fire.  I use candles for meditation just as much as I use them home decor.  Yankee Candles have always been one of my favorite brands because they are long lasting and fill the house with fragrance. Their newest line is called the Y.Collection New York. These scents are made using an eclectic mix of raw materials to infuse your home with a complex and intriguing fragrance. They come in a wide range of scents and pretty displays that make them perfect for gift giving this Mother's Day.

I was able to test out several of the candles from the Y.Collection New York in a variety of scents, shapes, and sizes.  You can choose from flower shaped tins in pretty pastels, porcelain tumblers, and clear glass, making it a breeze to find something to match your decor. The containers are so pretty, they will be easy to re-purpose after the wax burns out. I especially like the quatrefoil tins because the part with the candle can slide out, giving me the perfect keepsake box without any messy residue to clean out. There are many fabulous aromas to choose from in the Y. Collection as well.  The new aromas include:

Katherine -  A combination of Blue Freesia, Rose de Mai, Lily of the Valley,  and Musk. It's a light refreshing fragrance.

Brooke- Ylang Ylang, Juniper, Patchouli, and Musk blend together for a earthy scent.

Emilia - The combination of Black Peppercorn, Night Blooming Jasmine, Dark Woods, and Patchouli reminds me of my favorite perfume.

Penelope - Pepper, Bergamot, Amber, and Vetiver makes for a relaxing fragrance that can enhance your mediation or yoga routines.

Addison - The blend of Orange Blossom, White Jasmine, Cedarwood, and Musk of will give you the sensation of walking through a garden in full bloom.

Naomi- Musky without being overpowering, I adored this mixture of Pepper, Cedarwood, Vanilla, and Amber.

Charlotte -  Mandarin, Pear Blossom, Vanilla, and Sandalwood certainly awakens all your senses. 

Tuberrose - Orange Blossom, Arabian Jasmine, Tuberose & Driftwood  make for a flowery scent that brings the fragrance of spring into your home.

Clemetine - This critrusy scent is very refreshing thanks to the combination of Grapefruit, Golden Osmanthus, Musk and California Clementines.

Peony Peppercorn -  A exotic combination of flowers and spice mingle together in this blend of Pink Peppercorn, Lily of the Valley, Moroccan Cedar, Patchouli and Peony.

I've been burning these candles for several hours over the last few weeks, and I've barely made a dent in them. They are long lasting, burn evenly, and smell amazing. The largest candles can last for up to 55 hours!  There is  no black soot left behind when you blow out the flame, and the beautiful containers help them blend in well with any home decor.

The Y. Collection New York candles are only a few of the fabulous scents you can choose from at Yankee Candle. There are dozes of other varieties available in jars, pillars, votives and so many more, any of which would make a fun Mother's Day gift. If you'd like to explore Yankee Candle and discover all the fabulous candles they offer, be sure to stop into your local store, visit their website, or follow them on their social media. There's a reason why Yankee Candles are America's most loved candles!
