The year is 1998, you’re chilling in your room listening to “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls while reading Seventeen in bed. You’ve just lit a buttercream-scented Yankee Candle, and you’re currently vibing. Life is good.

We can’t take you back to that moment (or anywhere other than 2020, unfortunately), but we can deliver a slice of nostalgia that’ll hopefully brighten your week: Yankee Candles are currently on super sale for Amazon Prime Day.

Yankee Candles, which we’ve pretty much all received as gifts from our grandparents at some point in our lives, are as quintessentially American as Jason Biggs (or Amanda Seyfried from Mean Girls, who’s also a fan of the brand). The candle company started over 50 years ago and remains a fixture in countless homes, especially around the holidays when its familiar scents like Christmas Cookie, Pumpkin Spice, and Cinnamon Stick lend a cozy feeling to the air.

Obviously, Amazon’s Prime Day deals on electronics like AirPods and Echo Dots are what most shoppers beeline towards on this once-yearly blowout, but early sales figures indicate that Yankee Candles, of all things, are rising to the top of products sold in the home categories. InStyle readers specifically are shopping this one deal more than any other home goods item on the site.

The “Large Jar” Yankee Candle, which promises 150 hours burn time, usually retails for up to $30. Today, you can shop certain scents including Cranberry Chutney, Spiced Pumpkin, Sugared Cinnamon Apple, and Apple Pumpkin for 40 percent off or more.

With all of fall and winter’s holidays just around the corner, and given how much more time than usual we’ll be spending at home this year, there’s never been a better time to welcome the warm embrace of a Yankee Candle.
