Lifting The Lid On Great Scent | Yankee Candle Elevation Collection

Yankee Candle have recently released their Elevation collection, which includes Amaretto Apple, Citrus Grove, Coastal Cypress, Dark Berries, Evening Star, Exotic Bergamot, Holiday Pomegranate, Pear & Tea Leaf, Sheer Linen, Shore Breeze, Sweet Nectar Blossom, Sweet Orange Spice, and Velvet Woods, and being the Candle addict that I am, as soon as I had heard that they had been released, I obviously had to pop down to my local Yankee Candle store and check them all out. Well after giving everything a good sniff, I eventually picked up the Amaretto Apple, and the Dark Berries, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Yankee Candle say about both delicious smelling scents.

Yankee Candle Amaretto Apple.

A warm Winter treat that makes the home welcoming with Apple just baked in Amaretto and Cinnamon. Yankee Candle Amaretto Apple also contains top notes of  Baked Apple and Amaretto Accord, heart notes of Cinnamon, and base notes of Vanilla and Sugar.

Yankee Candle Dark Berries.

A sensation lush and subtile, a bowl of full ripe Blackberries near a Window overlooking Peony and Rose. Yankee Candle Dark Berries also contains top notes of Blackberry, heart notes of Rose and Peony, and base notes of Cashmere Wood and Musk.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained Cinnamon and Vanilla, I thought that it had a delicious sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly boozy Apple scent to it that kind of reminded me of the Glade Spiced Apple and Cinnamon Room Spray mixed with a shot of Amaretto. I could definitely smell the Baked Apple, Amaretto Accord, Cinnamon and Sugar, as I thought they were what gave it it’s sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly boozy Apple scent, but I couldn’t really smell any of the Vanilla, as I thought that all of the other scents kind of overpowered it a little.

It’s scent throw.

I really liked it’s scent throw, as even though it smelt quite subtile in it’s jar, I loved that it manage to fill both my room and the entire top floor of my house with it’s sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly boozy Apple scent that lasted for hours even after I had blown it out.

It’s burn time.

It said that you were supposed to get up to 80 hours of burn time out of this, but as I always kept my wicks trimmed, I easily got at least 90 hours of delicious sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly boozy Apple scent out of it.

It’s packaging.

I really liked it’s packaging, as this came in a really thick rectangular Glass Jar with a platform lid that looked beautiful sat on my Dressing Table.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved it’s scent, as even though it contained Peony, Rose and Musk, I thought that it had a delicious rich and tart fruity Berry scent to it that kind of reminded me of The Body Shop Frosted Berries Shower Gel. I could definitely smell the Blackberry, Rose and Peony, as I thought they were what gave it it’s delicious rich and tart fruity Berry scent, but I couldn’t really smell any of the Cashmere Wood or Musk, as I thought that all of the other scents kind of overpowered them a little.

It’s burn time.

It said that you were supposed to get up to 80 hours of burn time out of this, but as I always kept my wicks trimmed, I easily got at least 85 hours of delicious rich and tart fruity Berry scent out of it.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Yankee Candle Amaretto Apple an eight point five out of ten, and the Yankee Candle Dark Berries a nine out of ten. I really liked the Yankee Candle Amaretto Apple, as I absolutely loved it’s sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly boozy Apple scent, it’s really powerful scent throw, it’s burn time, and it’s packaging, but I did think that it could have done with smelling a little bit stronger of Amaretto given that it was called Amaretto Apple. I really liked the Yankee Candle Dark Berries , as I absolutely loved it’s delicious rich and tart fruity Berry scent, it’s really powerful scent throw, it’s burn time, and it’s packaging, but I did think that it could have done with smelling a little bit more spicier given that it was called Dark Berries.

  1. Another great review. Thanks! Dark Berries sounds like a winner…maybe the scents could make winter days a little less dreary as an alternative to the usual pine, cinnamon, etc. seasonal scents.

    • Ohh yes. It’s definitely a great Winter Candle. I’ve got my Eyes on The Holiday Pomegranate to try next, but I’m a little bit iffy when it comes to Pomegranate sense.
