Yankee Candle Review

Fall is my favorite time of the year as the air becomes crisp, leaves begin to change into a palate of beautiful colors and juicy apples ripen on the trees. Since I live in Florida, the seasons often blur together year round so instead I bring the spirit of fall into our home through baking, decorating and the wonderful scent of fall candles from Yankee Candle®.

The new Perfect Pillar candles are a wonderful offering that I tried in the classic scent, Spiced Pumpkin which has up to 95 hours of burn time and a lovely rich, deep orange color set in a pillar glass and covered with a brushed metal lid.

The Spiced Pumpkin Perfect Pillar candle has up to 95 hours of burn time and a lovely rich, deep orange color set in a pillar glass and covered with a brushed metal lid. The fragrance brings back fond memories of walking into my grandma’s kitchen as a young girl and smelling the delectable aroma of spices such as cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon simmering on the stove. As I burned this candle in our home, my husband walked in the door and immediately got excited thinking that I was baking a pie……sorry honey!

Over the River™ has a wonderful fresh scent that is described as “a cool and calm stroll by the river……watery green notes with hints of sage, amber and oak.” It smells amazing and for a moment I was transported back to the Shenandoah River where we spent 16 glorious days in a mountain cabin over the summer.

The limited edition “Wine Collection” Napa Valley Sun™ Stemless Wine Jar Candle is perfect for those relaxing evenings while enjoying a glass of wine with a loved one and watching the sunset. I really like how pretty this candle looks set in the popular style of stemless wine jars and the fragrance is like “rays of golden, powdery amber with a vanilla flower finish.”

My family loves the Pumpkin Buttercream which inspired me to actually start baking because of the wonderful combination of fragrant pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon and clove. It is warm and spicy and decadent and a “delicious” candle to celebrate the fall.

Vanilla Satin™ is a classic, romantic fragrance that showcases rich vanilla, sandalwood and flowers. I like to keep this pretty, sophisticated candle next to my bed while I am reading or snuggling close to my husband.

Kitchen Spice™ is a “must have” candle for every kitchen this fall in my opinion because it is the perfect blend of sweet orange, clove, ginger and cinnamon. It has a bold but not overpowering fragrance that makes our home smell so warm and inviting.

Overall, I am very impressed with the fall collection of candles and fragrances available at Yankee Candle®. I love to give Yankee Candles® as housewarming or hostess gifts because the recipient is always so happy to receive their favorite fragrance to enjoy and the prices are very affordable.
