SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass. — Yankee Candle Company, a manufacturer of scented candles, announced the introduction of five new fragrances to its lineup. The Exotic Escapes collection — now available at Yankee Candle stores, YankeeCandle.com and specialty retailers — seeks to take consumers away for a tropical excursion, the company said.
"All of our fragrances can evoke another time and place, and we wanted to highlight that characteristic with this new line," Hope Margala Klein, executive vice president brand, design and innovation for The Yankee Candle Company, Inc., said. "With this collection launching when our customers need an escape from the winter doldrums, our Exotic Escape sweepstakes serves as an extra welcome treat."
The five fragrances include Ocean Star, Citrus Tango, Luau Party, Under the Palms and Exotic Bloom.
Yankee Candle also is launching an Exotic Escape sweepstakes, which will launch Jan. 21 and run through March 16. The grand prize winner will receive two round-trip tickets and hotel accommodations for five days and four nights on Grand Cayman Island, as well as a cash prize of $2,000 and a $500 Yankee Candle gift certificate.
