Fear not Yankee Candle Advent Calendars have returned for another Christmas with even more choice. If their seasonal fragrances don't leave you feeling festive I don't know what will. Each year I've always left it too late to grab myself one of their Advent's, this year however I was kindly sent their ever so beautiful Carousel Advent Calendar  (£32.99 NOW £26.99) to review from the Internet Gift Store. 

If you haven't heard of the Internet Gift Store they're an online retailer of a wide range of gifts from popular brands like Yankee Candle, Ted Baker, Disney and more. They offer free delivery on orders over £35, with delivery on orders under this starting at just 99p as well as promising fast delivery and an optional next day delivery service. There's also the chance to personalise gifts, making sure the Internet Gift Store can truly cater to your needs - you'll also find yourself some bargains with a regularly updated clearance section. Being big Yankee candle fans we're loving this years collection with the Yankee Candle Votive Christmas Cracker gift set & Yankee Candle Wax Melt Bauble gift set on our wish lists - both of which currently discounted at the Internet Gift Store, along with a free Santa Hat in each order to spread a little Christmas cheer.

As mentioned Yankee Candle have returned with plenty of designs (a carousel, house, wreath & snow globe) this year, with previous designs on sale if you're willing to search for them. Internet Gift Store have both the carousel & house for 2015, the house may have actually sold out by the time this post goes live. I was over the moon when I opened the box to see the glistening Carousel countdown waiting for me. All of Yankee Candle's advents are beautifully designed, the carousel however really is something special. The hexagonal box is held together by the large red bow at the top, with intricate sleighs and carousel 'reindeers' printed all over, with glitter detailing, making it a decoration itself and most definitely a talking point for any guests over the festive period.

For those of you wanting the fragrances inside to be a complete surprise I'd skip ahead now. The Carousel Advent definitely has the most varying fragrances this year. Behind each of the 24 doors a tea light or votive will be revealed in one of eight fragrances. I've only actually purchased one of the featuring scents before - Snowflake Cookie which leaves the house smelling of freshly iced cookies. Bundle Up is a new scent for 2015, this one sounds pretty intriguing by the description online - a touch of citrus, fresh linen and snow. Another scent to feature is popular Candy Cane Lane which smells of peppermint, cookies and creamy vanilla icing. Icicles returns, this one supposedly smells of crisp snow covered forests with a hint of cinnamon. Other scents of the tea lights are Spiced Orange, which always causes a debate between myself & my mum when we go pick out our Christmas scent. I personally like the blend of citrus and ginger, it's the perfect winter warmer. The last fragrance to feature as a tea light is Winter Glow, a clean & fresh wintry fragrance. Going by the calendars doors it seems every 6th day you receive a votive/sampler. A votive burns for around 15 hours compared to the 4-6 a tea light provides. Bundle Up and Winter Glow both reappear as two of the four votive's. I can't wait to burn Berry Trifle & Cosy By The Fire which is described as a warm mix of ginger, clove and orange with woody notes. 

Yankee Candle advent calendars are perfect for the entire family, everyone will enjoy seeing what's behind each door rather than your regular and highly repeated chocolate shapes. What could be a better excuse to get the family together on the December evenings than a new candle to burn, Christmas films & plenty of chocolates.
