Yankee Candle helps to let you re-live moments in your past, and reflect the best experiences in your life through fragrances that trigger those memories. They are the world's most renowned brand of scented candles, they have a true passion for fragrance and they produce more than one million jar candles per week.
Yankee candles are now the world's favourite scented candles but their astonishing success grew from the most humble of beginnings. In 1969 Mike Kittredge was a seventeen year old student with a serious problem, he needed to buy a gift for his mother but had no money at all to do so. Kittredge decided to get creative and make something himself. He gave the matter some thought and eventually decided to create a candle from some old wax crayons. Before he even got as far as presenting his gift to his mother, a neighbour saw it and persuaded Kittredge to sell his masterpiece to her!
Being an enterprising sort he used the profits of his sale to make two further candles, one for his mother and one to sell. He had managed to transform a functional item into an attention grabbing decorative piece and the Yankee Candle story had begun.
