During a trip to Boston, Mass. last fall with my family, my mother-in-law introduced me to the store Yankee Candle Company. We spent a good hour smelling the different scents. I was having trouble deciding ~ a lady (who was also shopping) approached me and told me to smell her favourite candle Bay Leaf Wreath - I left the store with one as well as a few more candles for myself and some gifts.
BAY LEAF WREATH

Bay Leaf Wreath has now become my favourite candle. It has a nice fresh scent, not strong and overpowering like pine.
Update February 16, 2015: Bay Leaf Wreath is a seasonal item, only available in the fall. I was able to get a couple of the large jar candles.
I also liked
Unfortunately the EggNog is a seasonal scent (hopefully it will be available again around November). I burnt this one at the office to add a bit of cheer last December.
I love these candles, they burn evenly and fill my home with lovely gentle scent. Some are very strong so I highly recommend a trip to the store so you can remove the lid and have a sniff. Very happy that Yankee Candle stores are now open in Canada, well they may have been for a while but I was unaware.
I'm taking a trip (much shorter one than the trip to Boston) to Yankee Candle this weekend, my Bay Leaf Wreath is almost gone and I want to take a sniff at
hopefully one of them will smell similar to the EGGNOG.
Update February 16,, 2015: Neither smelled like the EggNog, but I did buy Cookies and Cream. Ive been burning it for two days now, it smells like buttered popcorn to me. Very sweet, I will not be purchasing this candle again.
Try to stay warm is you are experiencing this unrelenting deep freeze.
Signing off till next time ......
