Yankee Candle gears up for summer with new collection

SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass. — Yankee Candle is rolling out new scented candles for summer 2012.

The five new scents, Loves Me, Loves Me Not, pink dragon fruit, wild passion fruit, Fruit Fusion and Oceanside, are inspired by one of three distinct experiences: the joy of youth, the tenderness of romance or the simplicity of the outdoors.

"Summer is a season all about having fun," Yankee Candle SVP brand, design and innovation Hope Margala Klein said. "Our new scents provide a delightful way to bring the best the season has to offer into your home."

The candles carry a suggested retail price range of $10.99 to $27.99.
