Yankee Candle Scents

Of course I am an all year round fan of Yankee Candles with the amount of different scents they have each season. But Autumn and Christmas scents are always the best so here's a few with a review from myself :)

Baby Powder
This is a scent that is available throughout the year form Yankee Candles. It's a very simple smell and isn't too strong when you walk into the room. I wouldn't say the scent is very sweet but it's more towards sweet than a spiced scent. The thing that attracted me to purchasing the candle is that I love the smell of actual baby power, although I wouldn't say that it exactly smells like the real thing. Don't let that put you off though, it's a nice calm and relaxing scent.

Cinnamon Stick
I'm not going to lie, I love everything cinnamon. Cinnamon flavored foods and scents. But for some reason, I really don't like this particular smell! It's so overpowering and I think it smells more wood like than cinnamon. I'd definitely recommend buying a small jar to test out before purchasing the real thing!

Fireside Treats
This is my most recent purchase from Yankee Candle as it was 25% off in my local store. It is by far my favorite scent from Yankee! It is a very sweet marshmallow type smell which I love. It may be quite strong for those of you who don't like sweet smells as it fills the room easily, but also that means not having to burn the candle for hours before getting a decent smell from it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a new autumny smell that can also lead into Christmas without the cost.


The last thing I would say about these candles is when shopping in store, opening the lids and sampling the smell is not always accurate to what the scent is when burning. I have had this problem both ways either liking the scent from in store to then not liking how it smelt at home, or not being sure in store and loving it once I've bought it. This is why it is great that Yankee Candles do all sorts of different sized products which makes it easier to try a scent at home before making the purchase for a large jar!

Let me know what scent you're loving this season!
