Love Aroma Riviera Escape Yankee Candles

Yankee Candle Riviera Escape Review
Yankee Candles Riviera Escape candles are a very new collection which came out in April 2016. I am always excited for new yankee candles because I always seem to be a sucker for a nicely scented candle as they can make my home smell heavenly. These candles remind  me a lot of the spring and summer months because of the names of the candles such as lavender and summer peach. All we need now is for the British weather to match the candles names.

This Riviera Escape home gift set includes 6 votive candles and the set includes the following fragrances - Riviera Escape, Summer Peach, Sicilian Lemon, Olive & Thyme, Sea Salt & Safe and Lavender. I also got two votive candle holders as I heard they help keep the candles lasting as long as possible with minimal mess.

The 6 Riviera Escape Fragrances
Riviera Escape - The scent of this candle matches it perfectly as it has a hint of floral in it and a fresh scent which is kinda like a marine breeze, the smell was very nice and refreshing. This one is perfect for anyone who likes fresh smelling candles.

Summer Peach - I don't tend to buy many peach products as I am not so keen on many peach smelling things on the market as they can smell quite fake but with this candle it smelt like a peach smoothie which I think is very summery. If you love sweet and fruity candles then this is a candle for you.

 Sicilian Lemon - I never thought about getting a citrus smelling candle before but honestly I am so glad I got this candle because I think I have a new favourite because it smells exactly like sweet lemons and makes the whole room smell gorgeous. This candle is perfect for anyone who likes citrus or sweet smells.
Olive & Thyme - This candle is fragrant thyme with a hint of musk scent and it smells very earthy, I never thought I would of liked this candle but this proved me wrong yet again as the blend was perfect and the combination  of the olive and the thyme complimented each other. I would recommend this to someone who would like a change from their usual choice of candle because this one is just divine.

Sea Salt & Sage - Just have to start and say this candle was beautiful, it was one best smelling candles I have smelled in a while with its crisp notes of bergamot and sea salt, it reminded me of a costal holiday, this candle makes me want to go on holiday. If you love spicy and herby candles then this is the one for you.

Lavender - I must admit I am not the biggest fan in the world of Lavender, I can't get a long with it in any form so I asked my mum to review this one and this is what she said. 'This candle was very nice and floral and was like walking into my granddads garden in the hot summer'.

This collection was sent to me by Love Aroma which is a website which sells a lot of candles including Yankee candles. They were also kind enough to send me a 20% discount for my readers and the code is
