I know I’m projecting all my angst about everything, but it doesn’t make sense to my brain.
Last year a thread I can’t find recommended some nice Christmas candles. I found the brand in my local shop, but due to lockdowns etc we haven’t been able to go, the shop does not sell online.

It was a brand sold elsewhere, so lease hit me with all your alternatives to Yankee candles that are sold in more than one place to see if I can find it. They sold packs of tea lights and votives and I think tins. They were recommended by a few people and I’m driving myself crazy try to find out what they were.

Lily flame, st.eval?

St Eval? Our little local farm shop sells tins of these and they’re lovely. My favourite is a neom though. So pleased I only lost my smell for 2 days with Covid as I’d have had a lot of very lovely, totally useless Candles lying around otherwise

St. Eval!!!!!!
Thank you so much @AwkwardAsAllGetout and @PinkOnWednesday
It was the inspiratus ones I was after. Stupidly spend hours trying to find my old user names and everything this morning getting upset. But they are sold out online, anyone know anywhere still selling them?

Worth a look on Amazon and eBay, usually lots of St Eval candles on both.

They had them on amazon just before Christmas - might be worth a look.

Not sure if you mean you really wanted Yankee Candles? I f so try QVC - (online shopping)they normally post quite quickly. Cannot recommend any as our flats have a no candle - due to risk of fire policy.

Then of course if you don't like the smell yo can return it.

@RainMoon hi, I was given some st. Eval invictus tea lights but found them too strong a scent for me. There are eight left in the packet. You are more than welcome to them if you would like them. Send me a pm if interested.

St Eval candles are my new favourite - excellent value for money and smell fantastic. Highly recommend!

CornishTiger Sat 26-Dec-20 17:32:59

St Eval are lovely and still have that one in a tin in stock.
