Can you imagine the holidays without candles? Not many Americans can.
The ambiance created by candles makes a home warm and welcoming for holiday guests. Candles also promote a feeling of relaxation during the stressful holiday season. Seven out of 10 households use candles as a focal point for their home décor, says The National Candle Association, and candles inspire aromatherapy-like relaxation and stress reduction.
Fragrance is the number one reason most people choose a particular candle. At the Yankee Candle® Store at Broadway at the Beach, you can see, hold, and smell true-to-life fragrances and select the one just right for you.
Fragrances like “Winter Glow” and “Balsam & Cedar” stir thoughts of a walk through tall pines on a crisp winter day. Scents like “Cozy By The Fire,” “Holiday Homecoming” and “Celebrate Christmas” bring back warm memories of family gathered round to celebrate. You can even fill you home with the smells of fresh-baked treats with candles like “Gingerbread,” “Christmas Cookies,” and “Cinnamon Vanilla.”
For those who prefer to enjoy the fragrance without the flame, Yankee Candle has nontraditional options such as the Elsa Scenterpiece™ electric warmer which melts the scented candle wax, filling a room with fragrance. Why not give yourself a real treat, and choose a Scenterpiece that is outfitted with an automatic shutoff and adjustable timer. Set it when you leave the house and return to a home filled with your favorite scents.
And since it's the gift-giving season, you'll want to check out the available gift baskets, lanterns and other special gifts at Yankee Candle that can light up the holiday season for family and friends.
Whether you prefer tapers, votives, pillars or jar candles for your most important moments, a candle is an indispensable element when setting a festive mood or nourishing a sense of relaxation, fun and luxury.
