Yankee Candle Wax Melts Reviews | Fall & Winter 2022
August 17, 2022
This is a review of 5 new Yankee Candle wax melts: Apple & Sweet Fig, Autumn Nature Walk, Golden Autumn, Snowflake Kisses, Winter Night Stars.
Apple & Sweet Fig
Savor the scents of the best fruits of the season: fresh apple, pomegranate, and fig are the ideal combination.
I'm getting plum, pomegranate, and woodsy fruit which is indeed fig. I'm also getting the apple, but it's not in the forefront. There's also a creamy note that makes this scent smell a bit like fruit scented skin cream. And although it's sweet, it also has a tiny bit of very slightly sour woodsy note, but in a good way. I like it, but after a few hours the sweetness dissipates a bit and it becomes a little more sour, although still quite nice.
Autumn Nature Walk
Top: bay leaf, bergamot, marine accord; Mid: Cedarleaf, lavender, blue moss; Base: Sandalwood, vetiver, tonka bean
A nice pine scent with a hint of sage, and maybe just a smidgen of sweetness. It reminds me a bit of Better Homes & Gardens Fragrant Woodland Walk
. Looking at the notes, I'm not getting most of them, definitely no vanilla (tonka bean), vetiver (a lemony scent), or lavender. It doesn't have any fresh or cologne notes, so no bergamot or marine either.
Fill your home with the beautiful blossoms of fall — sunflowers, mums, and dahlias warmed with notes of ginger and vetiver.
I didn't review this in my video because I couldn't get a hold of this scent at the time. It's a slightly perfumey scent that does have a bit of a "fall flower feel". It's sweet, but not overly sweet, and not all that flowery. I'm getting chrysanthemum and sunflower notes (at least those notes as they're expressed in candles and wax melts, because real mums and sunflowers don't have much of a scent, and they're certainly not "sweet"), and strangely I'm also getting a bit of peach. There's also a slight bitter note that smells a tiny bit like fermented wine, but I think it's actually supposed to be the bitterness of the mums. And there may also be just a smidgen of light wood way in the background. It's an okay scent, but the bitterness is just a smidgen too much for me (although most people might not notice it all that much).
Catch the frosty kiss of a snowflake with powdery notes of violet, rose, and white musk.
Musky perfume scent with a slight bubble bath note, a hint of laundry, and maybe a smidgen of baby powder. Although it's sweet and perfumey, it's actually a bit more soapy, and sweet but not overly sweet. I like it. Even though the label and wax color are similar to the Floral Candy scent, they're different scents, although slightly similar. Both are very sweet and perfumey, but Floral Candy is not as sweet and has a fruity note that this scent does not, and this scent has a musky, slightly baby powder note that Floral Candy does not.
Winter Night Stars
Gaze up at the starry night sky, as notes of rose, amber, and musk swirl on an icy breeze.
A pleasant but kind of non-descript fresh, slightly fruity, very slightly cologney, perfumey type scent with a little bit of warm amber. Looking at the notes, I'm not getting mint or anything "icy".
