Lifestyle - Star Anise and Orange Yankee Candle Votive review

Hey lovelies,
I'm back with another candle review, I just bloody love candles, especially in Winter, I like nothing more then lighting some candles and turning on a million fairy nights as soon as it starts to get dusk!
Since I have burned nearly all my Christmas Yankee candles my stash is getting low, so while mooching round my local garden centre the other day I picked up this Star Anise and orange votive, reduced to a mere 90P and I thought I would give it a whirl as I had not seen this scent before. The scent was not very strong in the packet so I wasn't sure if I would like it, but as soon as I took it out of the packaging I could tell I was gonna love it as it smelt amazing before being lit and smells amazing even after I blew it out. Imagine a subtle liquorice type fragrance mixed with citrusy orange, its fresh and spicy and sweet all at the same time a perfect winter scent, that's not to Christmassy. I'm kinda over Christmas now and wanted something new and I can honestly say I have not smelt a candle like it before and I defo plan to pick this up again.

Are there any Yankee candle scents you recommend I try ?
