As soon as we opened the door, the wonderful smells overwhelmed us. We spent a while opening jars of candles and smelling the scents. But the purpose of our visit was to get air fresheners for our vehicles. I loved the choices. In addition to all the scents, you had the choice of vent clips, hanging fragrances, suction cup or...

Stopped here as just something to do one evening while in Williamsburg last weekend. What a lovely surprise! Not only the usual Yankee Candle jar candles, accessories and decorations but so much more. You can make your own jar candle or dipped candle, create wax hands, there are housewares and kitchenwares, women's accessories and a wonderful toy area for the... More

Wow! What a neat place to visit. They don't just have every candle Yankee makes, there is so much more. Things for the house, toys, and a fantastic Christmas shop. It snows every couple of minutes in the store! Don't miss this. Allow one to two hours.

Sign up for coupons before you go and you will be amazed at the money you save! That being said, if you just walk in off the street, oftentimes they have specials running. They always have seasonal decor featuring candles with a seasonal bent. But don't stop in the main room with the candles...explore the entire place. They have an... More

This is a nice place to go if you want to just have a leisurely break in the air conditioning. They have tons of odd ball candles including bacon and beer! They have some decent sales and lots to do with kids. The wax hand dipping is really neat.

Not your average candle store! With themed stores-within-the-store, you could probably even keep a toddler amused in this place!

This is such a great place to go and enjoy all of the many unique stores within Yankee Candle Company, I just wish that the employees were more friendly and helpful. My children and I were there on Wednesday the 27th and not a single employee was in the general store, candy shop, the toy shop, or the Christmas shop... More

Great, kids went right to candy bins. Husband and I had a wax mold of ours hands made. Other stores in the building are nice to look in but not my style or what I shop for.

Skip the outlets and visit this place. Even if you could care less about candles, this place is an experience. Where else do you get a snowstorm every 4 minutes. Check it out!
