This Valentine's Day, ditch the bouquet for a rosy Yankee Candle that'll last 150 hours — it's down to $28

Set their heart 'aflame' with a floral Valentine's Day candle that looks as pretty as it smells.

Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away — have you gotten your special someone a gift yet? It's okay, there's still time! And while we have your attention, might we recommend the lovely Fresh Cut Roses-scented Yankee Candle? It comes in a large 22-ounce glass jar, making it a beautiful accessory they'll love looking at just as much as they'll enjoy its floral aromas. Plus, a Valentine's Day candle will last way longer than an actual bouquet. It also happens to be on sale at Amazon, so add it to your cart while it can be shipped to you (or her) in time for the big day.

Express your "burning" love with what might be the prettiest candle we ever did see ... or smell.

Why is it a good deal?

At $28 (down from $31), this isn't the absolute best price we've seen, but it's close to the lowest it's been in a year. And when you compare it to a pricey flower arrangement that'll last three days, this gives you way more bang for your buck!

Why do I need this?

Yankee Candles are made of premium-grade paraffin wax, so you know you're getting quality along with all its gorgeous floral ambience. This one has a natural fiber wick to help ensure a long, consistent burn, and its spring garden-like scent can be enjoyed for as long as 150 hours!

We also love its pale pink hue, which is bright enough to add color to a room while staying discreet. That said, if you're looking for other floral Valentine's Day candle ideas, you can also choose from scents like Sakura Blossom Festival, White Gardenia or Lilac Blossoms.

What reviewers say

Over 2,400 Amazon customers are smitten with the Fresh Cut Roses Yankee Candle.

"Love it! These last forever and smell great!" exclaimed one happy buyer. "My friend walked into my house and said it smells like flowers in here! She was astounded that it just came from a candle. That was two weeks ago and [it's] still going strong."

"Strong scents give me migraines, so I usually don’t burn candles or use essential oils in my home," shared another satisfied shopper. "[This candle] smells amazing and isn’t too strong and overpowering (no headaches at all) but you can still smell it ... I had it burning during a family birthday party recently and several people asked what it was because they really liked it."

"It has a strong sent that fills up my bedroom!" exclaimed a final fan. "Yes, the wick is a little long so the flame is slightly higher than I would prefer, but other than that I don't see any problem with it."

Once you see how fabulous this candle smells, you'll want one for yourself!

You know what would make a fun add-on? This flexible electric lighter:

This rechargeable, battery-operated lighter bends to fit inside even tall, narrow candle holders. No lighter fluid required!

"I love this little gadget," declared a reviewer. "I’m so tired of wasting my money on throwaway things like lighters, and I wanted a more sustainable product to reduce the waste I produce. I don’t know how hot this gets, I’m not going to touch the little spark it produces, but it lights my candles and fires without me having to get too close to the flame and burning myself. The charge lasts pretty long and it charges really fast."
