The new Yankee Candle Christmas collection scents have dropped for 2021, and let me tell you one thing: for all of you who love to buy candles, you’re in for a treat. I was invited to the latest Yankee Candle event in London a few days ago, and boy, did I have a great time.
There are not that many Yankee Candles London stores; the one I usually go to is actually an outlet candle store located in Greenwich in South London. I’m also very much used to buying the candle brand straight from TK Maxx candle departments, where you can often get some famous Yankee Candle fragrances like Christmas Cookie and other apple and vanilla-scented candles.
However, even if I love buying candles near me, sometimes there’s no possibility of smelling new candle scents – especially when the collection has just dropped. To be fair, even if I couldn’t smell that new Christmas Yankee Candle collection, I’d still get any one of them without a second thought. That’s how good the Countdown to Christmas 2021 candle collection is.
I’ve decided to break down for you the event and show you the highlights of my discovery of the new Yankee Candle Christmas collection. Sweet, minty, fresh, and sparkling – those are some adjectives that sum up really well the warm event, and the great candle collection Yankee Candle has come up with this year.

Large Yankee Candles are some of my very favorite things to get from a candles store. Large jars are one of the best things that can happen to me as a freelance writer, and as a blogger who is truly inspired by the twinkling flame of a burning candle. Whether it is a Yankee Candle London shop, a TK Maxx, or any other candle websites, I’ll always look to buy candles that are large, and preferable with two or three wicks. That’s just the way it is.
The Countdown to Christmas event put together by the candle brand must have been one of the nicest moments I’ve been to this year. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, and Yankee scented candles were spread throughout the room in a path-like presentation.
There was everything that you could wish for from a candle brand: large jars, votives, small jars, Yankee Candle gift sets, two great workshops, and the most exquisite catered food.
2021 Countdown to Christmas Yankee Candle Scents & Fragrances
Upon entering the Yankee Candle London workshop, I was warmly welcomed by the team who walked me through the five Christmas Yankee candle scents of 2021:
- Twinkling Lights
- Tree Farm Festival
- Merry Berry
- Letter to Santa
- Christmas Eve Cocoa
I have to admit that I’m always very much impressed by the Yankee Candle fragrances, as they are the most perfect candle gift to offer a close one or an acquaintance. When I buy candles, I always think to myself that they’re really a present that quite anyone loves. Choosing perfume scented candles is the touch that shows whether you know someone well enough.
How cute are the Yankee Candle displays for this event?
The two workshops organized by the candle brand revolved around calligraphy and biscuit icing led by an amazing icing artist from The Biscuiteers. I’ve taken part in the icing workshop and even though it was my first time, I definitely enjoyed it and found myself being way more gifted with my hands than I thought I would be.
I have to admit I still haven’t eaten that biscuit – and will probably keep it as a souvenir. Who could eat something that cute without feeling guilty?
In the Yankee Candle Countdown to Christmas collection, you can find:
- Small, medium and large Christmas candle jars
- Various advent calendars, and one to build as you wish
- Various Yankee Candle Christmas sets
I was gifted the Yankee Candle Tree Farm Festival large jar from the Countdown to Christmas candle collection. To be honest, it’s one candle that I’ve been burning every day since I’ve gotten it.
I will write a review about the Tree Farm Festival candle in the upcoming days, so be sure to sign up for The Rouge Velvet newsletter so you don’t miss any amazing posts about candles, minimalism, and beauty. For now, all I can tell you is the mix of pine tree, cedarwood and musk is one of the smartest candle scent combinations Yankee Candle has come up with so far.
Still, my favorite Christmas candles from this 2021 Christmas Yankee Candle scented collection are definitely Christmas Eve Cocoa and Letters to Santa.
If you’re a candle enthusiast, and sweet scents are your vibe, they’re Yankee scented candles you’ll want to have at home since they do smell, but are not overpowering – far from it, actually. Just a cozy scent blanket to have around you when you’re writing, working, or just chilling at home in front of a Christmas movie.
