There are four new scents available in all six classic Yankee Candle forms. So what are our thoughts on them?
Sam – This a stunning complex aroma on a cold smell, and with all the luxurious, strong and warming spices in it I expected it to have quite the scent throw, but sadly it didn’t.
Viva Havana is very sexy and masculine, which I love, and I do think it’s one of the best scents that Yankee Candle have released in a long time, and one of the most unique, it’s just unfortunate that the quality didn’t reflect that.
Sarah – Loved this from my first sniff! But I did notice it wasn’t a boozy Mojito scent, more of a mocktail type scent. The mint does overpower this scent once it’s burning which for me was a shame.
In the end, I’ve had it lit with a strawberry scent in my wax burner to get a summer feel to the house. The two scents really mix together well and that’s been fun to explain to everyone what the smell is!
Sam – This is such a sweet and juicy scent, perfect for summer. You can really smell the peach and the mango notes and the lemon element gives it a sort of fizziness. It makes me want all the cocktails!
This had a better scent throw than my Viva Havana candle but I feel as though the fragrance sort of faded as the candle burned down which was a bit disappointing. Perhaps I just got used to it.
Sarah – I did like this on my first sniff, it’s certainly not a scent that I thought Yankee Candle would sell. I found the throw to be really quite mild from the lit candle. Definitely needed more oomph.
After a few hours it did fill the room and it’s quite a spicy scent which I like but it’s really like it’s holding itself back from being a real Tobacco Flower scent, it just wasn’t for me in the end.
