This is a review of 2 new Yankee Candle Christmas wax melts from Walmart from 2018: Frosty Gingerbread and Poached Pear Flambe.
Gingerbread freshly frosted—a holiday delight that fills any room with welcome and warmth
An intense, rich gingerbread scent that smells like warm ginger snap cookies fresh out of the oven. There's nothing "frosty" about it though, as there aren't any minty notes at all. This scent seems to have a lot of scented oil in it, as there's a bit on the surface, and if you get it on your nose or lip it burns, like real ginger oil or cinnamon oil. It's better and stronger than any other ginger type scent I've smelled. Throw is strong, but I expected it to be a bold scent monster that would take over the entire house.
Poached Pear Flambe
Juicy pear, fresh peeled and ready to delight in a bath of caramel colored brandy.
Top - Pear Nectar, Crystalized Sugar; Mid - Honey, Caramel; Base - Whipped Vanilla, Fruity Musk
This smells just like pears, plus a bit of a sweet milky vanilla note and a hint of caramel. It has a smidgen of a perfumey note, but it's not overly sweet. Fantastic scent.
