Do you mean the Yankee Candles in general or the Halloween candles specifically? If you are in Knoxville, there is a Yankee Candle store in West Town Mall. I don't know if Knoxville Center Mall has one or not.

We live about 45 minutes from West Knoxville, so that's our part of town to shop in when we make a trip to the "big city"! I think the candles generally are worth the money. They seem to have a better scent & they last a long time. I usually buy a couple each year & they can get us through for a while. We don't burn them every day though.

Oh neat! You're in the Knoxville area too!

Yes, I meant: are the Yankee Candles in general worth the money?

They are SO expensive. I've never had a single one. The issue is that I burn candles a LOT so if they're that expensive it makes it hard to justify the expense, ya know? I mean, really what I should do is to get a YC or two and burn them here or there and burn the cheaper ones more often.

I just don't want to get hooked on really pricey candles! hah hah.

Beleive me they are... i have a cholocate truffle burning as i write this and i could eat it . i have found the small jars are not as good as the large and probably because the large has more smell as you burn it and the tarts are just brillant and last for about 2/3 hours
the tarts are great to just test a smell. no point in buying a large jar if your not gonna like the smell

The smell lasts a looong time .. and they smell sooo good. I usually buy them at Marshalls or Ross, though! I am cheap!

I rec'd the Yankee Candle fall catalog in the mail yesterday. It has scented pages, so you can "sample" smell about a dozen candles!! Makes me want them all! From what I can tell from sniffing a catalog page (lol) the new Natures Paintbrush smells WONDERFUL!!

I guess I'll probably try one this year then. I've literally never tried a single one.

Yep, I think you should! Keep an eye on their website or sign up for their emails. Sometimes they run specials or send coupons!
