Yankee Candle Spring and Summer 2022
Yankee Candle Spring 2022
We are travelling almost 10,000 to find Yankee Candle’s inspiration for 2022. The country where Kellie Harrington, Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy all found Gold in this year’s Olympics
For 2022 Yankee Candle has been inspired by the wonder of Japan – specifically the Sakura Blossom festival.
Sakura is the Japanese word that describes blossoms – usually Cherry blossoms, but also plum and apple and jasmine blossoms as the season progresses. To celebrate this, they have an annual six-week festival which dates back to the 8th century. The festival itself is called Hanami and the decision on the festival dates is dependent on the Blossom forecast released in late February. This year, 2021, saw one of the earliest forecasts and the festival commenced in mid-March. The festival tradition symbolizes the welcoming of spring and the appreciation and admiration of natural beauty and that’s the inspiration for Yankee Candle 2022.
Yankee Candle will also introduce other collections in 2022
The new Signature Collection which will replace the Elevation collection.
The Outdoor Collection. A small collection of candles in tins that all contain citronella as well as other summer inspired fragrance.
Chesapeake bay – the long awaited replacement for the much loved Aromatherapy Spa collection
So to the main range and the Sakura Festival theme.
Six new fragrances – three for release in January and three for release in April. They will be available in all forms – Large, Medium & small jar along with votives, wax melts & the new filled votives (replacing tealights)
