As you probably already know, i’m not a massive fan of Halloween, but Yankee Candlehave recently released their Halloween 2016 collection, which this year contains Forbidden Apple, Witches Brew, and Candy Corn. Now being the major candle addict that I am, as soon as I heard that they had been released, I instantly rushed down to my local Love Aroma store and bought the entire collection, and after burning them for quite a while now, I thought I would tell you what I thought of them.
Here’s what Yankee Candle say about each gorgeous candle.
Forbidden Apple… A seductive potion that takes Apple, mixed with Bergamot, Black Oak, and Vanilla Noire, to some place forbidden.
Witches Brew… The spicy sweet aroma of exotic Patchouli, casts a captivating spell.
Candy Corn… The familiar, sweet scent of Candy Corn is a fond reminder of Halloween fun and treats.
The Yankee Candle Forbidden Apple smelt incredible. It smelt a little like their Sugared Apple, but it had more of a mature scent to it, rather than a sickly sweet scent. I could, of course smell the Apples and Bergamot, and I think they mixed rather well with the Black Oak and Vanilla Noire. I’m not entirely sure what Black Oak and Vanilla Noire are supposed to smell like, but the both made the entire candle smell extremely mature.
The scent throw of this was fantastic. It didn’t fill the entire top floor of my house like most of the candles I buy, but I could still smell it outside my room. It also filled my room with it’s rich heady Apple scent within about fifteen minutes, which I thought was fantastic.
It says that you’re supposed to get up to 90 hours of burn time out of this, but because I always keep my wicks trimmed, I got at least 110 hours of delicious Apple scent out of this gorgeous smelling candle.
I did review Witches Brew last year, and if you would like to also read that, you can find it here, but it was pretty much still the heady Patchouli scent that I remembered. It was however a lot stronger than before. Like I said last year, it’s one of those all year round scents, as it’s fruity, but spicy at the same time.
Like last year, this filled my room with it’s heady Patchouli scent within about ten minutes. It also filled the entire top level of my house with a gorgeous sweet yet spicy scent, that even once I had blown out the flame, you could still smell it everywhere.
It again says that you’re supposed to get 90 hours out of this, but because I always keep my wicks trimmed, I got over 110 hours of gorgeous Patchouli scent out of this delicious smelling candle.
The Candy Corn was nice, but it wasn’t really for me, as it had an extremely sickly sweet Toffee scent to it, and as you know i’m not really a fan of the sweet food scents. It’s a great smelling candle if you like food scents, but as I said, it wasn’t for me.
The scent throw of this was a little disappointing, as it was one of those scents that you only noticed once you had gone out, and come back into the room. Although I think this actually made me like it a little more, as I wasn’t being suffocated by a sweet sickly Toffee scent.
It says that you’re supposed to get 90 hours worth of burn time out of this, but because I keep my wicks trimmed, I again got over 110 hours of rich Toffee scent out of this sticky sweet smelling candle.
Overall I would have to rate the Yankee Candle Forbidden Apple, a nine out of ten, the Yankee Candle Witches Brew, a nine out of ten, and the Yankee Candle Candy Corn, a six out of ten. I absolutely loved the Yankee Candle Forbidden Apple, as the mature fruity scent is right up my street, and I again loved the Yankee Candle Witches Brew, as it’s heady Patchouli scent filled the room within minutes, and lasted for hours, but I unfortunately didn’t like the Yankee Candle Candy Corn, as it was far too sickly sweet, and just wasn’t for me.
