As you probably know, I love Yankee Candles! As I have the candles sat next to me, I can’t stop smelling them…they are so good!
I always get excited when I know Yankee Candle are about to release new fragrances, I love to see what they come up with next. I also reviewed the Spring fragrances, click HERE if you missed that.
The new range is called Viva Havana, how exciting does that sound?!
I have bought the small sample votives for the purpose of this post (I would have bought them away!). They provide fragrance for up to 15 hours. Carry on reading to find out what I think of them!
Okay, so this doesn’t sound like the most appealing fragrance as it includes the word ‘tobacco’. Before I smelt it, I thought it was going to be a typical floral scent and not actually smell like tobacco…but it does, a little bit! I like the smell of tobacco even though I gave up smoking 3 months ago (go me!). It still does still smell floral, though. I like this fragrance, but it is too subtle for me to want to repurchase.
The spicy sweet, woody scent of tobacco flower.
Top: Ginger Root, Star Anise
Mid: Jasmine, Tobacco Flower, Bamboo Leaf
Base: Cedarwood, Tonka Bean
Mojito time! As I have these candles sat next to me, this is the one I can smell the most. I’ve had a couple of Mojito’s before…they didn’t smell this good, though! The lime scent comes through very strongly and it smells very sweet and delicious! I would love to buy a large candle in this fragrance, perfect for the summer!
A chilled mix of mint and lime, as refreshing as a tall, icy concoction on a tropical day.
Mid: Cool Mint Accord
Base: Vanilla, Sugarcane
Okay, so this is a very interesting fragrance…I didn’t like it at first, but the more I smell it now, the more I love it! When you look at the spice notes like cinnamon and nutmeg, you’d think it would smell Christmassy, but it doesn’t at all! This smell 100% reminds me of rustic souvenir shops/markets when they have incense burning in the sun- let me know if you know what I mean! I would definitely buy a large candle of this to remind me of holiday memories.
A complex blend of sandalwood and spices, vanilla and nostalgia for old Havana.
Mid: Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg
Base: Amber, Oud, Sandalwood
I have never tried Guava before, but I really want to now after smelling this! It smells so delicious and juicy, it makes my mouth water a bit. This is quite a simple fragrance but it has been done very well. I would buy this candle again if it was on offer.
The delicious, juicy taste of ripe guava, filled with the luscious tropics.
Top: Bergamot, Lemon
Mid: Peach, Guava, Mango
I am pleasantly impressed by the new summer collection…Yankee Candle has done very well! I feel like there is a good mixture of fresh, fruity and floral scents, something for everyone. I am going to say Viva Havana is my favourite; it is so unique, I have never smelt anything like it before.
