Scented Candles Reimagined

The Yankee Candle® Signature Collection creates beautiful home decor candles with newly designed vessels and custom hand-illustrated artwork.

The challenge
Our Design team was challenged to create a design that bridges the equity of the past, feels up-to-date and relevant to consumers. Meanwhile continuing to meet Yankee Candle® burn quality standards and honoring the heritage and legacy of the brand.

The solution
Our Design team has carefully crafted 5 new candle vessels that will delight your senses and enliven your home and outdoor spaces. The 3 new Tumbler vessels feature a brushed tin lid that doubles as a base. The large tumbler was designed with 2 wicks for best burn quality. The 2 new classic jars introduce a more refined version of the classic glass apothecary lid structure.

The label design for this new collection incorporates both watercolor paintings and pencil sketches for a charming home decor feel. This new family of vessels modernizes the Yankee Candle® brand.
