Cafe Culture by Yankee Candle

Cafe Culture by Yankee Candle. The café – just like perfume – has been at the centre of culture and discussion in Europe for hundreds of years. Café Greco was once the haunt of Byron, Keats and Shelly (the holy trinity of romantic English poets), Les Deux Magots was the daylight home of both Sartre and de Beauvoir as they dreamt up important and influential philosophies. Voltaire preferred Le Procope, just a ten-minute walk down the Boulevard Saint-Germain, Paris, and both Einstein and Kafka frequented the small, dark and now renamed Franz Kafka café. The point we’re slowly making our way towards is that cafés all across Europe – whilst all essentially the same thing; a place to read and caffeinate and ruminate – can be very, very different. One thing they all have in common, though, is the smells – delicious pastry and hot coffee and delicate sandwiches and all sorts of other simple scents that let you know you’re somewhere comforting before you even need to open your eyes. It’s this that we’re hoping to explore with our latest range from Love Aroma, with three wonderful, well-thought out scents from Yankee Candle: Pain au Raisin, Cappuccino Truffle, and Tarte Tatin.


Our Pain au Raisin candle is exactly what it says on the tin – with sharp, simple, comforting notes of sun-dried raisins soaked in cognac, gently faded into buttery, sugary, warm vanilla dough, this candle is a comforting scent perfect for a slow weekend morning. We love it, and we’re sure you will too. The pain au raisin is just one of three great candles that complement each other beautifully and we’re looking forward to telling you all about the others, right now!


Our cappuccino truffle scented candle, also from Yankee Candle, is another great choice for your café-scented personal candle needs. The main reason we pop into a café – when we have the chance – is to get a coffee, and as much as we love pain au raisins and tarts and all of the other sugary pastries that come with the café experience, the coffee is – and probably always will be – the important part of going to a café. That’s why we’re so excited about the cappuccino truffle candle – because it sums up café culture so well! With the deep, slightly bitter, luxurious, light cappuccino scent, punctuated and given life by sweet, exotic and flavourful truffle, this is a candle to be truly proud of and we’re looking forward to you trying it!

Finally, Yankee Candle have been good enough to invent another great café candle for us to try – tarte tatin. A lively, colourful recreation of the traditional French countryside tart, this mixes together the all-natural scents of sharp and sweet apples and dough, with toffee, vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon happily thrown into the mix. A bright, exciting, lively candle that brings the café culture collection together wonderfully and with a happy, sweet little bang. Try them yourselves and let us know what you think!
