Homeware shop Robert Dyas selling Yankee candles for just £10 this Christmas

That's less than half price

Homeware store Robert Dyas is selling Yankee Candles for less than half price this Christmas.

The company is currently offering the brand's larger 538g jars, including the Cherry Vanilla and Simply Sweet Pea varieties, for just £10 on its website.

The figure is less than half the normal price of £23.99, which is what they go for on the official Yankee website.

Other scents available for £10 at Robert Dyas include Soft Cotton and Candy Cane. Some, including Strawberries & Cream, are currently out of stock online.

A product description on the company's e-store reads: "This candle will last you for days, burning for up to 120 hours to keep your home fresh and pleasant with the delicate scent.

"This will make a great addition to your home or as a gift to a loved one."

The major supermarkets are likewise offering the larger jar candles at a lower-than-usual price, but none are currently as low as those stocked at Robert Dyas.

Over at Asda, the 538g jars are being sold for £13.47, while at Sainsbury's and Tesco they cost £14.

It follows the news earlier this month that one enlightened shopper managed to scoop £100-worth of Yankee Candles for just 50p.

The smart bargain hunter had the bright idea after noticing the price of the jar candles had been slashed to just 10p at B&M.

This candle will last you for days, burning for up to 120 hours.

They picked up five of them, which was all that remained on the shelves, and posted about the eye-popping find on Facebook.

They shared: "Bought five in total £100 in Yankee candles for 50p and yes cleared shelf as there was only five."

Candles to make the home smell cosy and fresh are hugely popular with Brits, particularly as the days shorten and winter draws in.

Experts have warned that burning scented candles them could release dangerous pollutants, with a 2009 study reportedly discovering that paraffin wax emissions may cause allergies, asthma and even cancer.
