So, there are a ton of great scents for the upcoming holiday and I am going to try to cover a good handful of them in this post. Here goes...
Cinnamon Spice - This scent smells exactly like cinnamon chewing gum; it's strong and super powerful. If you don't like Big Red, then you will not like this candle at all. I personally think it's fantastic.
Toasted Hazelnut - I think this scent is a nice change of pace from the usual ones that the season has to offer. But it still provides the warmth and delightful aroma that one would desire for this time of year. It actually smells like Ferrero Rocher tastes and c'mon, how could that ever be bad?
MacIntosh Spice - This is such a simple holiday combination of apples and cinnamon, yet Yankee somehow manages to do it in an original and exhilarating way. It's delicious and is the perfect fragrance in room spray form. A little spritz goes a long way, so you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck.
Cranberry Chutney - I have been in love with cranberry scented candles since my days working at Pier 1 where I discovered their Cranberry Balsam candle. Cranberry Chutney is incredibly potent and really fills the entire room. Delightfully sweet and aromatic, it's one to definitely have on hand throughout the winter months.
Pumpkin Pie - Mmm...pumpkin...my favourite pie of all time. I found this scent to be very easy on the pumpkin and strong with the spices. It burns nicely and is more than suitable for any holiday house party.
Warm Apple Cake - This is absolutely one of the sweetest candles I've tried. It is smooth and easy, with no one dominating scent. The apples, cinnamon and vanilla all combine together to bring a fabulous candle to the table.
Cranberry Fig - Completely different from Yankee's Cranberry Chutney, this cranberry is more tart than sweet, but just as satisfying. In regards to the fig scent, well, my only exposure to a fig would be via Fig Newtons and Fig Newmans. That being said, I do detect the smell of a freshly opened bag of those yummy treats. It seems WoodWick has brought us another wonderful candle for the season that perfectly melds these two great scents.
(WoodWick Green) Valencia Orange - "Wow" was my immediate reaction to getting a whiff of this candle. I have never smelled such a juicy, refreshingly sweet and tangy candle in my life. My mother argues that Illume's Valencia Orange is better, but I say nay-nay. Illume's is good, but not orange enough for my taste. WoodWick's is the one to own.
Hope this helps with your holiday candle decision making. Be safe and have fun!
