The Yankee Candle company was created by Mike Kittredge in the US when he was only 17 years old. Wanting to give his mother a Christmas present, Mike melted down his wax crayons to make her a candle. When a neighbour saw Mike's candle she loved it so much that she begged him to sell the candle to her instead. With the money he made from the first candle, Mike bought enough wax to make one for his mother and more to sell. Mike began producing candles in larger quantities as neighbours continued to express their interest and the Yankee Candle business really took off from there.
Today Yankee Candles are crafted by master candle makers, known as Chandlers. Every product and fragrance is made from the highest quality of materials with pure cotton wicks making them safe and free from lead and highly-refined paraffin waxes ensuring fragrancing performance and optimum burning time.
Yankee Candles have the largest and most compelling selection of fragrance scents in the world. They have a committee of researchers who are dedicated in finding and developing powerful scents. These are tested by a group of individuals in the company to measure the quality of burn, fragrance and authenticity.
