    Default Yankee Candle Wax Melts

    I have just read on Wax Addicts that YC melts are to be discontinued from January 2020!

    This is a blow. Especially given the number of melt warmers I own. I like to buy matching melts for my candles.



         

    Will have to find another source when the vast stash runs out then.

    Have we heard any mention of this from Rosa on the Yankee shows?

    I’ve bought melts from Home Bargains in the past, although I now buy their large jars (for less than 5) and I personally think that their throw of scent is better than YC’s. I used to buy YC but stopped when the scent throw diminished and all I could detect was a paraffin type odour. I can only assume that they changed the process or formula.

    I only buy Yankee melts, or votives if they are a very good price and then melt them down. Will be a shame if they discontinue them as I think they give out quite a strong scent compared with tealights/votives/small jars. Asda do little wax cubes quite cheap and if you melt two together they also give out a good scent. I'll switch to those if there's no more Yankee, who I really do believe have changed their ingredients as they are nowhere near as good as when I first started buying them.

    That is a shame as I much prefer melts to large jar candles, the jars seem to have a very weak fragrance imo. I did wonder if they were going to be discontinued as I had not seen any new scents in melts in local stockists.
    I bought some from Blacks candles recently and was impressed with the scent and price

    I use what is left at the bottom of the jars in my electric burner and it seems fine. As someone said you can break votives down and use those. I very rarely use the melts

    What beautiful kitty cats! :blackcat:

    Even if it is true, there are other gorgeous melts, and with some detective work knowledgeable forumites may be able to suggest good dupes for your favourites.

    Reading the article, it does seem to indicate that it's only the 22g melts that are being discontinued. I hope that's true as I much prefer the Yankee Home Inspirations range of melts (the ones that come in pack of 6).
    I think I might stock up though, just in case.
