Candle lovers will be pleased to know that Yankee Candle has opened 3 stores here in Singapore.
The candles from this American brand have been available for some time now at major department stores such as Tangs and Takashimaya but I’m sure fans of the brand would love to explore a space dedicated to the products.
Located at Great World City (#03-33), Jem (#01-14) and Velocity@Novena Square (#02-41), the stores offer a wide selection of scented candles, tarts and reed diffusers, as well as fragrance-related accessories. The prices are fairly reasonable and range from S$4.90 for votives to S$49.90 for large vase candles. When I was at the Novena Square store, some were 20-50% off.
I bought Peppermint Bark, a chocolate peppermint scent. It’s ok but I don’t love it – foody fragrances aren’t really for me, though I love choc-mint as an edible treat.
