Review: Yankee Candle Simply Home Beach Towel Candle

I have been burning this scent like a mad woman.
Almost every single day.
In 87-95 degree weather.

It seems like the Simply Home line of Yankee Candles can be found at stores such as Kohl's and Home Goods, which is where I picked up this scent. The particular candle I got was 12oz. of glorious, refreshing fragrance. Within 30 minutes of burning this candle, my room was instantly filled with a crisp and clean beach scent, which is awesome because I've grown to hate the beach as an adult. Sand and sharks overpower waves and sunshine in my opinion, but San Diego does produce a mighty fine, picturesque beach sunset...aghhhh, conflicting! The throw is excellent, and the aroma lingers long after the flames has extinguished.

Another cool this about this candle is it comes in a curved jar. I know it's nothing to get overly excited about, but sometimes the tumblers and regular jars get sort of boring. Plus, this candle is a really nice dark blue, so it goes with pretty much any room decor. I actually decided to buy the curved jar because, for only $1 more, I got and extra 5 ounces as opposed to the other option, which was a 7oz. tumbler. This candle was only $7.99, whereas anything directly from Yankee's website or in store would be a lot more money! Quite a find, if I do say so myself!

Anyways, back to the candle! The aroma is to die for; the smell of freshly cleaned towels combine with an airy ocean scent and a hint of citrus to make this candle a winner in my book. If you smell reaaaally close, you can almost get a hint of salt intertwined with the citrus and linen, indicative and true to that of sea breeze.

Writing this makes me want to buy a spare just in case they don't last long! If you come across this fragrances and it's the sort of thing you enjoy, DEFINITELY give it a whirl!
