Yankee Candle Company recently launched their new summer 2015 scent line, featuring a variety of aromas inspired by a day on the boardwalk. The sweetest of these scents was inspired by the always popular summertime treat, Cotton Candy. As Yankee Candle puts it,
the scent of this boardwalk favorite is perfectly captured in all its pure, sticky sweet delight
The aroma of numerous food items, especially sweet treats, transform easily into candle scents, so I was confident that Yankee Candle could do a wonderful job creating a Cotton Candy candle. However, I was absolutely shocked by how well they did in perfecting the scent of this summertime sweet!
Upon receiving the sample candle that was sent to me for review, I immediately was drawn in by its cheery, bright pink hue. While personally not a fan of the color pink, I am 100% tomboy at heart, the color is spot on what I imagine when I think of a big fluffy cone of Cotton Candy on a hot summer day. As I lifted the lid off of the jar encasing my sample, I was met with the tantalizing aroma of spun sugar. While some sweet scented candles are overpowering and cloying, Yankee Candle’s Cotton Candy was more like a sugary caress to my nose.
I always close my eyes when smelling something for the first time. I think it is my mind’s attempt to block out all outside interference so I can focus on what I am smelling. I must have had a dreamy smile on my face as I was smelling this candle, because all of a sudden I was surrounded by my children, all clamoring for a sniff of what made mommy look so blissful. I handed my candle down to the kids and let them pass it around and enjoy the scent. My ears were met with sounds of happy murmuring, sighs and requests to light it immediately, which I happily did. As good as my unlit candle smelled, once lit it smelled even better, scenting every corner of my home with sweet, sugary notes of cotton candy and bubble gum. My inner child, as well as my children, were in heaven!
For those of you who enjoy sweeter smelling or food related scents, I would highly recommend the Cotton Candy candle from Yankee Candle. The aroma is spot on and its bright pink color will lend a cheery note to any room you place it in. This scent comes in a variety of sizes (see attached slideshow for sizes and details), so everyone from a casual candle burner to someone who enjoys scenting their home daily can find just the right size to treat themselves to. This new scent is available for purchase now at Yankee Candle’s more than 500 retail stores, www.yankeecandle.com and select specialty retailers and gift shops while supplies last.
