      Got mine today too, I love love love them.

      My favourite from jar sniffing is Garden by the Sea, I started burning it 30 mins ago and it's reminding me a little of a watermelon type scent. Can't wait to try the others.

      Also, on an aesthetic level, the colours of the candles suit my living room perfectly

      Really chuffed with this TSV, looking forward to the drops later in the year, it's the first time I've had a Yankee auto delivery order.

      So, if the marriage breaks up, who gets custody of the little votives?

      Well my candles don't have votives, but their tarts and tealights are mercilessly ripped apart to go with their respective parent to a new pairing.

I need a lemony partner for all is bright (aka Bachelor Number 1) and I am hoping for a Cuban selection match for Wild Mint (Bachelor Number 2) otherwise they are all paired up.
      Quite proud that you smelt them very similarly to how I did, as I consider you the expert! Realised when I burnt Coastal Living tonight that the sweeter note I could smell in that was the grasses. Burnt Garden by the Sea last night, and the delicate floral notes do remind me of Yankee's Verbena. Really pleased with this TSV, just wish they were a little bit stronger, so my husband could smell them consistently. I love All Is Bright, he's got far too much going for him to remain on the shelf!

      *Sigh* It's always the kids that suffer.

      all is bright is a nice strong candle. in fact the t lights are so good two or three scent a room very well. the pink candle in the tsv is like verbena but verbena is a lot nicer and stronger imo

      Did you see the first, and for a few days the only, review of the TSV (as it appeared on TSV day)? I am surprised it got through the review "filter" as it wasn't an assessment of the candles themselves, just a general criticism of the composition of the TSV, so completely against the review guidelines.

      "I am so fed up with all the recent Yankee TSVs being sets of three large candles and all with auto delivery. Please, please, please could we have something different next time. I loved the hampers and another TSV of that nature would be much appreciated."

      It hasn't gone down very well - only one person has ticked the "Yes" box for "helpful" and 39 ticked "No".

      i saw that review but the hamper usually comes later in the year!! but they can mix it up a bit but the start of the year is always auto-delivery time but at the price it was & the free post (which is a shock) made it sell well so do think they will do similar again

      Yes, there will always be some who prefer mixed sets and some who only want jars. It's good we get both. Personally, I haven't found the hampers to be such good value, although I do use votives and tealights sometimes. The latest TSV, on the other hand, was definitely good value.
