Calling all Yankee Candle fans — we have big news. Well, multiple pieces of big news, actually: The cult-favorite candle brand just released a new collection, plus two Target-exclusive scents. Spring basically came early with these delightful-smelling votives, which are arguably Yankee Candle’s most stylish products ever.

There’s a lot to unpack here, but let’s start with the latest line. Dubbed the Studio Collection, it’s essentially a greatest-hits assortment featuring ten of the most popular Yankee Candle scents, from the transportive Beach Walk to the refreshing Fresh Cut Roses. The best part, though, is that they’ve been given an amazing colorful-meets-minimalist redesign. Made with essential oils mixed into premium soy wax, each is poured in a pretty-hued, modern vessel. Think soft pinks and purples, soothing blues, a cheery yellow, and more. On top of that, they’re made to be reused, so you can easily remove the label and take advantage of them beyond the last burn (hello, new decorative accent).

On the equally exciting front, Target will now carry the entire single-wick Studio Collection line plus two Yankee Candles that you can’t find anywhere else. Drum roll, please… allow me to introduce Dried Lavender & Oak and Warm Luxe Cashmere. Mentally, I’m very ready for spring, and I can’t think of more perfect, soothing scents to hold me over until then.

Starting at $12.99, the contemporary candles tout 40-65 hours of burn time. You can shop all of the ultra-stylish Studio Collection scents directly from Target or the original ten (excluding Dried Lavender & Oak and Warm Luxe Cashmere) via Yankee Candle. I waxed poetic about some of my favorites below.

The first of the new only-at-Target candles, this one smells just as good as it looks. Described as “soft cashmere in a scent that’s both creamy and luxurious,” it packs the ultimate cozy combo... and just like that, I’m curled up in my favorite blanket. With a book. And maybe even a hot chocolate. Winter isn't so bad.

Neutral decor lovers, this one’s for you — and it’s a real win-win as far as candles go. For starters, the white tone can pair with any style in any space (bathroom refresh, anyone?). Plus, with notes of pineapple, salty air, fresh coconut, and vanilla, it's like a seaside escape from the comforts of your couch (piña colada not included).

Roses are red, this floral candle is pink — and it's one of the best-looking hues of the collection, in my opinion. With top notes of fruity apple peel, green leaf, and citrus, it’s basically the equivalent of having a fresh bouquet 24/7 on your nightstand, coffee table, kitchen counter... or all of the above.

Imagine a bearded lumberjack carrying a bunch of lavender at an outdoor farmer’s market, and that about sums up the second Target-exclusive votive, Dried Lavender and Oak. It’s equal parts sweet, spicy, and woodsy, all blended into an aptly colored purple vessel.

Come for the fun green hue, stay for a fresh, earthy take on a classic fruity fragrance. Musky, woody base notes balance out the citrus scent in the best ways possible.

I’m personally a sucker for anything vanilla scented, so I really have to hand it to Yankee Candle for this iteration, which evokes a feeling that can only be described as “baking cookies in Martha Stewart’s kitchen” (ideally with her). That’s thanks to top notes of cinnamon bark, red fruits, and orange peel, sprinkled in with a vanilla and white musk base.
