Mother’s Day gift idea: Home scents

Mother’s Day gift idea: Home scents

If your mum is anything like mine, she’ll have a house filled wth candles. They will always be a much loved gift to keep mum’s house smelling beautiful.

Yankee candles have been a staple candle for many houses for quite a few years, and with each season they bring out a new collection of scents.

This Spring, just in time for Mother’s Day our local Northern Ireland department store, Menary’s have some great new season scents to choose from.   

Moonlight, My Serenity and Peony all smell fresh and great but the new Lemongrass & Ginger scent smells zingy and awesome!

Selected Menary’s stores across NI stock Yankee scents in both candle’s and reed diffusers.


Reed diffusers are a great way to fill your  (or your mum’s) home with a subtle Yankee scent. And with no naked flame, you can leave it unattended when you’re not about and you’ll arrive in to a beautifully scented room. 

Definitely consider this Black Cherry fragrance diffuser from Yankee. Your mum will love it, and you might love it as well. 

Tip: make sure you turn the reeds upside down weekly to refresh the fragrance.



Another great candle collection is WoodWick, also stocked in selected Menary’s stores. We love their crackling candles, as well as the fragrance, you’ll hear the candle crackling like a little log fire! Their Black Cherry candle is so good I could nearly eat it!


If your mum would rather have a candle/diffuser free house, the Greenleaf satchets are super alternative. Just take them out of the plastic packaging and put them on a radiator, in a clothes drawer or cupboard and let the scent do its thing.


Get shopping for your home fragrance for Mother’s Day at selected Menary’s stores across NI.
