People are just realising what label means on Yankee Candles – and it's bad news for shoppers who love a bargain | The Sun
YOU'D be hard pushed to find someone who doesn't love Yankee Candles.
But the designer homewares brand's luxury candles can be a little pricey, with large jars costing £27.99.
So it's no surprise that shoppers rush to buy them in supermarkets and budget stores if they spy an offer.
Recently, one mum spotted some scent's on sale for £4.99 and told TikTok fans "this is your sign to run to Home Bargains".
Many candle fans insisted a "trip to the store" was needed after seeing the Yankee Candle Home Inspiration jars in sunny cotton and warm vanilla.
But others took to the comments section to moan about the quality of the cheaper item.

Only some Yankee Candles have the 'Home Inspiration' label below the company's logo.

Posting on TikTok, she said: "Home Inspiration are not the original Yankee Candles.
"I work for Yankee Candles and get asked this question regularly. It's a cheaper version."
Elsewhere, a former Yankee Candle employee has shared a video revealing a secret that can get you a brand new candle for free.
Ashley Lester explained that Yankee Candle has a "jar for jar" policy.
So you can stop scraping the wax out of the bottom of your used candles.
And you don't need to go mad making your own fragrance to save money, either.
Ashley said: "You can take in your candle and exchange it out for another one," she said.
