I’ve seen Kringle Candles pop up many a time across the US, where they’re really popular, but not so much in the UK. Quite an interesting back story to this one because Kringle Candles belongs to the son of Mike Kittredge, who founded (and later sold) Yankee Candles. I know that Yankee Candles are huge sellers in the UK, and Kringle is not a dissimilar brand, so if you’re familiar with Yankee and love Yankee, you won’t be stretching too far away from a known quantity with Kringle.
I’ve been sent Watercolours and Pink Grapefruit by Love Aroma – a site that has an eye for candle trends. So, starting with Watercolours. In theory, I should absolutely love this (it’s the best seller) because it’s got sweet pea notes which I adore, but it’s also got strawberry and lime, and it’s a bit like a sweet smoothie in scent! I think if you like that almost-foodie, fruity and sweet kind of fragrance, then it will be a hit. Pink Grapefruit is a lot less complicated – it really is just a sweetened version of real grapefruit; absolutely delicious and fresh.
Other scents include Royal Cherries, Tranquil Waters and French Lavender. I think they’re pretty good value at £22.99 for 100 hours burn time (has anyone at home counted their burn time?!). You can find them HERE.

I am a massive fan of candles. I have never tried these before but I really like the sound of them. Definitely will have a look at these.
Kringle have actually pulled out of selling in the UK now. Happened a few months back so places are running their stock down. My local garden centre used to have 3 bays full of them now they only have one. Sad to see them go.
Good news – Kringle Candle now have a new UK distributer and are now available in selected stores and online at lovearoma.co.uk
I’m not a fan of Yankee Candles (mostly too sickly smelling for my tastes) but some of the Kringle ones sound like they’d be my cup of tea. It’s a shame about the price, though, I’d be happier to pay less for a smaller candle! That way I wouldn’t have to commit if I didn’t like the smell…
