Can you smell that? No, it’s not the reassuring scent of spring, it’s chocolate. Well, chocolate eggs to be precise.

That’s right, forget vanilla-scented sticks and geranium-filled aroma diffusers, we’ve found a completely unique smell for your home this year.

If you can’t wait for Easter to roll around (only seven weeks to go) then you’ll be pleased to know you can create a sugar hit anytime you like with Yankee Candle’s Chocolate Egg Candle.

Recreating the scent of an indulgent Easter feast, once lit you’ll recognise the smell of rich and creamy chocolate eggs with vanilla-scented candy shells.

The candle burns for up to 150 hours - which is much, much longer than our real Easter eggs will last - and creates a warm, safe glow in the iconic Yankee Candle glass jar it comes in.

Yes, it’s not necessarily a candle you’ll want to burn all the time, but it makes a brilliant novelty present as well as a brilliant addition to a child’s bedroom.

Plus, we all know that smell is a large part of taste, and so you might want to light this as you serve dessert at your next dinner party to really set the scene for that chocolate mousse.

Best of all, the smell is sweet but not overpowering, and so means you can get that chocolate hit without filling your home with a sickly scent.

So, now our home is taken care of for Easter, what about the real deal? Well, we’ve found a box of 48 Creme Eggs for just £14.40.
