  • Can you return Yankee candles after burning?

    I'm not sure if I like the scent. A little too strong and sweet for my taste. It smelled good in the store. It's called ~ Almond Cookie.

    I burned it about 40 minutes. Not sure what there policy is....

    I really, really, doubt it.

    The only store I know with a policy like that ended up in bankruptcy. People basically just "borrowed" the merchandise, and returned it badly used.

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

      I would try. A lot of store have a 'satisifaction guarantee' policy. I have returned scents to bath and body works that I didnt like. And I have bought and returned plenty of make up that just was not my color.

        these candles aren't cheap. I'm hoping they will let me exchange it. I'll call them tomorrow. If not I guess I'm out of luck...

          Your right Joy!! I checked out there website I am a happy camper

          So, what exactly does "100% Satisfaction Guaranteed" actually mean? Simply put, if for any reason you are unhappy with your Yankee Candle, they will take it back. Many times you won't figure out that you don't like a particular scent until after you start burning the candle, so Yankee Candle will also accept candles that have been burned. Don't be embarrassed about this...a jar candle costs Yankee Candle very little money to make, and they want to be sure that you are completely happy with your purchase. So if you start burning a candle and decide that you don't like it, don't throw it away-return it!

            I am glad to hear you can return it. I have found most stores do allow returns of items that you arent happy with....oh with the exception of swim suits and underwear!

              Several years ago my husband and I were in a Yankee store when he accidentally dropped a candle, breaking it. We offered to pay for it and they were very friendly, saying, "Oh, don't worry, it happens all the time...We even break them by accident sometimes." I don't remember if we insisted on paying or not, but they didn't ask us too.

                  your so welcome adamrach. Great policy. I love the Vineyard it smells like grapes! I just bought Lilac for the spring! My mother loved the smell of lilacs. I brought back the double wicked candles though TOO much scent. I will stick with the single wick. My son and dil really love yankee's oils. He say's the scents are amazing. You put several drops of the oil in the top then place a tea light below to heat the oil. You may want to check that out for hubby Do you have a favorite scent?

                    When my husband had to live in an extended stay motel for several months, he loved to burn the Yankee candles. I think it was "lilac" - it was a light lavender color, but he hates lavender fragrance. The hotel room had a very stale "old cigarette and stale hotel room" aroma.

                    I got into making my own with soy wax so I'd bring him my own. Yankee were great, but expensive. I also bought him a luxury bath towel as a gift.

                      Your husband is one lucky man. I do believe the Lavender is also similar in color to Lilac. I don't like Lavender scent's either. This one definately smells like fresh Lilacs. I have three dog's in the house ~ hence having a candle burning ~lol~

                        Ron is VERY happy one of my love languages is acts of service. I like to spoil him.

                        I recently had some blood tests come back; I am dehydrated. I am always dehydrated from my medication.

                        Anyway, he can barely walk, but went all the way down the hall to get me a room temperature bottle of water. I prefer warm water. We take care of each other.
