Top 10: Best Summer 2020 Exotic Kitchen Candles

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

There is nothing worse than a kitchen smelling of cooking smells. Kitchen's are the most likely to acquire foul odours, but are so easy to eradicate. It's extremely important to have a kitchen smelling beautiful as it's usually the hub of the home and the place where we host. Generally speaking, home fragrance is categorised into: candles, plug in, oil reed diffusers, mist diffusers and sprays. Traditionally, summer consumers opt for tropical and bright smells, and if you haven't already swapped from your winter products then now is the time! This blog is going to review our favourite 2020 candles to help you decide which to purchase.

1) Yankee Candle: Pink Sands

Yankee Candle has dominated homes for years with their fabulous bottles and fragrances. This particular fragrance promotes floral and citrus notes, with a hint of vanilla. In doing so, creating a beautifully exotic aroma which fills any room. Yankee Candles are notorious for long burn life (up to 150hours) and natural fibres (which reduce smoke). One of the best advantages of Yankee candles is that the airtight lid prevents decay over time. This particular product is 621g, so it will last the whole summer!
