Traditional Yankee Candles

Yankee Candles are instantly recognisable. With their curved glass design and wide selection of interesting scents, these make an amazing addition to any home.

How it all Began

In 1968 Mike Ketteridge a 16-year-old student was looking for gift inspiration with Christmas just around the corner. He decided to make a candle for his Mum because it would be a completely unique and personal gift.

Using everyday materials he found in the kitchen: household wax, a red crayon, string and a milk carton, he produced his very first candle.

A neighbour saw the candle and offered to buy it, leaving the student with enough money to buy more materials to create more – one to gift and one to sell! That was the start of the Yankee Candle® journey…

From this point Yankee Candle® has grown in to a worldwide brand, expanding in to Europe…

Yankee Candles are now the number one Candle brand in the UK.
