    I know what you mean! The offers are so tempting, you sometimes wish you never saw them!

    I have resisted so far, despite my weakness for bargains, as I really have to get through the candles I’ve accumulated in the past few years (getting there too slowly!). I’m not a fan of Midnight Jasmine also. Well, I’ve never actually lit anything in MJ but the smell cold is too much for me.

    BTW, I bought a couple of Yankee jar holders for 5 (bargain!!) on Amazon the other week. It said the seller was The Wax Outlet but the invoice said My Planet so they obviously have a few trading names.

    I find the wax a bit grainy and hard to pool...

    24 votives in two christmas boxes for 20, 3.95 postage. I don't like votives really but they smell much stronger when you melt them in a tart burner so this is quite tempting.

    Yes I got this offer by email and thought it would make nice pressies. I do quite like votives and they're so much better value than a small jar (think Yankee votives are 49g and small jars are 104g wax but way more than twice the price!)

    Anyway I also got a deal today from Yankee bundles (another one!), of a case of 18 votive candles for 10..
    They're in a single scent (choice) but they're the Yankee Home Inspiration range, so am deliberating as not sure how good they are?

    Don't want 18 candles that barely smell but amazing value if they do...!

    all the home inspiration ones are only good for is grating or chopping up to use in melt warmers as that makes them stronger but as normal votives most proper yankee fans i know wont touch the home inspiration range

    Ah, thanks for that, very interesting!
    I knew they weren't as good as the main Yankee range (which is why I've never bought them myself!) and they also used not to be massively cheaper either.

    Wonder why they're stronger used as melts, because I thought melts would have to have more fragrance in. Perhaps their wicks etc aren't as good...?

    Now I'm wondering maybe I should invest in some to use in my Scenterpiece (re-using a proper Scenterpiece cup)?!

    i think a melt warmer just seems to bring out the fragrance more even if the home inspiration ones have less fragrance oils ect as when me & mum scrap the last parts of a candle out & put it on the melt warmer we get a new strong burst of fragrance

    & you can do that cause i know people who have done it, there again me & mum dont have a scenterpiece but we use the wax from the cups on a normal melt warmer so cant see why you cant do it the other way

    (didnt wanna get too technical & start rambling on)

    Thanks a lot for replying - it's much appreciated.

    And feel to ramble or get as technical as you like, always interested to read tips from others and their wisdom!

    Funny enough I had a black cherry large jar Yankee candle on this evening (main range not Home Inspiration) and it stopped burning much higher than they usually do - a real shame as I was really enjoying it despite usually hating foodie fragrances...

    But I've just gouged out the metal wick base and will try the wax in the Scenterpiece! I've used all sorts of candles in normal Yankee melt warmer to good effect...

    Think I am going to go for a case of the votives too and can share some at Christmas too :)

    Result! Well done you. Hope it's a nice set! One for me, one for you type thing?!

    Must admit mum and mentioned splitting it but postage did put me off a bit...

    If only that trick worked with QVC - can you imagine?! ;)
