Light Up the Season with Our New Bright Lights Candle Collection

The Bright Lights Collection is holiday-ready, showcasing the perfect combination of ambiance and style. You’ll find scented candle favorites that have been re-imagined this season as decorative 3-Wick candles with elegant, hammered metal lids and a pop of dazzling gold-foil lights on the outside. Start with Magical Bright Lights, a standout from the Bright Lights Collection. This fragrance brings to mind a night filled with twinkling lights and fills the air with aromas of frozen pear, mint leaf, jasmine, and vanilla. Choose from the added ambiance of this multi-wick candle style, or for a burst of festive scent in a small package, choose Yankee Candle® Minis— ideal for hostess gifts, its sparkling packaging provides the wrapping.

This collection brings the holidays home, especially with Shimmering Christmas Tree. Notes of dewy greens, warm spices, and fir balsam tantalize the senses just like a colorful Christmas tree. Choose the candle style that suits your recipient, either from the Bright Lights Collection, or from the artisan-inspired Signature Candle collection, or choose a nod to tradition with a Classic Original Jar Candle. You can also surprise someone on your list with thirty days of Magical Bright Lights fragrance in a ScentPlug® Refill. (Combine with a ScentPlug® Diffuser in your favorite Christmas design for a thoughtful gift.)

For those who love classic holiday fragrance, give the gift of snow-dappled trees and fresh forest scent with the balsam, aromatic cedar wood, and juniper berry notes of Balsam & Cedar. As part of the Bright Lights Collection, this 3-wick scented candle will delight the person on your list who loves a simple style. Or give this holiday scent as a Scenterpiece® Easy MeltCup with a Scenterpiece® Wax Warmer for the ultimate personal gift. As the perfect gift for underneath the tree, Wax Warmers can be enjoyed all year round.

There’s nothing more festive than a room filled with fragrance, and the tantalizing notes of Christmas Cookie™ are a perfect pick this year. With the scents of buttery richness, vanilla, and nutmeg lingering in the air, this tempting soy-blend wax candle provides instant holiday spirit. Ideal for those with a taste for sweet confections, Christmas Cookie™ delivers with scent and glow. Find it in our Bright Lights 3-Wick Candle Collection complete with a spangle of stars on the label. As a Concentrated Room Spray it’s a stocking stuffer hit — add a Fragrance Dispenser to create a stylish gift duo. Or choose the modern sleek shape of a Tumbler candle — its long burn time will last through the season and beyond, and the hand-illustrated label design featuring decorated cookies is sure to charm.

There’s plenty of true-to-life, seasonal scents to celebrate with this holiday. Choose your favorite scented candle, car air fresheners, or home fragrance options in one or all of our holiday fragrances, including Sparkling Snow™, Marshmallow Eggnog, Mistletoe™, Sparkling Winterberry, Tree Farm Festival, and more!

Gnome & Santa Accessories

Gnomes are harbingers of good things to come — especially those who work with Santa. These adorable, hardworking creatures will hold your favorite scented candle and oversee its joyful glow, filling the room with holiday cheer. You’ll find gnomes everywhere this year engaged in holiday antics on the Holiday Gnome Presents Multi Tea Light Candle Holder, the Holiday Gnome Cookies Votive/Tea Light Candle Holder, and adorning the glittery Holiday Gnome Jar Candle Shade. Shop scented candle accessories that feature Santa, too — perfect for giving, they exude the spirit of the season. Our Santa Truck Jar Candle Holder and Santa Truck Illuma-Lid® Jar Candle Topper make delightful complements to scented candles in fragrances like Holiday Cheer, Magical Bright Lights, or Christmas at the Beach™.
