How it it different to last years?

Keeping the book style opening for this advent again this year still, in my opinion, works better from a consumer point of view. It's easier to stand, use and doesn't take up too much space. They've taken their lovely festive design concept throughout the three advents but it was a shame to see this feature a wreath as well. I think a Christmas Tree or maybe even a fireplace design would have made it stand out a lot more and define that it is different to the other two advents. With 8 Votive scent repeats, 1 Tea Lights scent repeat and the same votive holder. 

Is it worth the price?

With 12 tea lights priced at £6.99, a votive holder prices at £4.99 and votive candles priced at £23.88 you are getting £35.86 worth in content. This is the same price concept as last year and contains 44% of the same products as last year. 
Although these advent's are suppose to be a lovely surprise each day, when content repeats are high, it's worth noting that you may not like the ones repeated and you may not get as much use from the money you've spent on the product. However for someone who loves the scents, is a fan of Yankee Candle and doesn't mind the ruined surprise, this would be a perfect candle advent gift.


Do you prefer this advent to the wreath one? Are you a Yankee Candle fan?
