If you have been reading this site, you already know that I love yankee candles. If you haven’t read part 1 of my yankee candle review, please read it here.
So, let’s get this candle obsession going, read on.
Cranberry Chutney – Yeah I know this votive sampler’s shape looks like a t*t. LOL. Let’s just concentrate on the smell here, ok? 🙂 It’s one of those another “used and abused” candle because the scent is just wonderful and delicious. It smells like pure cooked sweet cranberry relish. If only I could eat this thing.
Golden Sands – This one wins in the conservative department. Not so exag (exaggerated) and has a mild scent to it. I really don’t think that it smells like sands, even more so as golden. It has light sandalwood scent. Reminds me of the fresh morning orchids back in the pacific. Like what? well, a better analogy would be like the girl who acts like a semi-virgin 🙂 WTF??? What does that mean? LOL, go figure!
Juicy Watermelon – Ohhhh, this one smells sooooo juicy and sweet. Like watermelon with tons of sugar. Just the smell of this can you diabetic (joke). Take note “watermelon” not cantaloupe. That one is pale, this one is pink, including the candle. Oh I just love the fresh pink color of this thing. It’s gonna be used, abused and overused soon.
Mandarin Cranberry – I can’ t quite well understand the smell of this. Perhaps my nose is blocked or I’m already saturated with all these scented candles hallucinations going on. I’m pretty sure there’s mandarin in there, obviously the label says it 🙂 but it’s a different kind of mandarin, like burned with spice kind of mandarin. I also smell a light cranberry there, but not so much. I love it though, it has a nice warm scent to it.
Pink Dragon Fruit – It’s not so much the scent, it’s more like the pretty pastel pink color that attracted me to this one. I love pinks, dunno why. The scent is a very mild dragon fruit. What is a dragon fruit, by the way? you know that fruit that looks like a giant pink strawberry fireball with a somewhat cookies n’ cream filling/meat on the inside? Yeah! that one! I bet you have no freakin’ idea. Me too. 🙂 They’re commonly found in Asia, specifically South East Asia.
Pomegranate Cider – This one got the name and scent right! It’s really a cider made out of Pom. I think it’s a perfect blend of not so saturating and cloying scent of most scented candles and the barely-noticed-does-that-even-have-a-scent-at-all kind of candles. I love this and I think it’s great for winter.
Vineyard – The color of this votive sampler is very intriguing. When I first got it, it was violet. After quite some time, and perhaps being exposed near the sun, the color changed to violet-yellow. I’ve heard very good reviews of the scent of this thing. It’s actually not that strong, but not too mild either. It has a bubblegum grapes scent which I also love.
