Fragrance: Sage & Citrus
Scent Strength: Medium in a small room
First impression of Sage & Citrus:Â
Sage & Citrus is another popular Yankee scent Walmart Super Centers are now carrying in Yankeeâ€™s large jars. Iâ€™m loving how convenient it is to just zip on by a store and pick up a candle if I need one. My closest Yankee store is 2 hours away so Iâ€™m loving this.
Iâ€™m pretty sure Iâ€™ve burned Sage & Citrus in the past but never reviewed it for some reason. It smells really good, like an herbal citrus with hints of floral and musk.
Here is the scent description from Yankeeâ€™s website:
This blend of earthy sage, luxurious talc and lemon-lime creates a natural harmony.
Top: Herbaceous, Lavender, Citrus
Mid: Geranium, Lavender
Base: Patchouli, Powdery Notes, Musk, Woody Notes
Itâ€™s always interesting reading the fragrance notes since my nose usually never picks up on the majority of it. Sage wasnâ€™t even in the fragrance notes which I found a little strange. I didnâ€™t know what Herbaceous was so I looked it up and all I could find was that itâ€™s a word relating to herbs. No description beyond that. LOL!!
To me, this scent smelled like the base notes above with hints of citrus and herbs. And now, letâ€™s see how this candle performs!
I decided on a small bathroom to start out since Yankee candles tend to be lightly scented for me, and thatâ€™s where this candle remained till the end. Once the wick was lit, it took several hours to reach a full melt pool and after that, my entire bathroom was filled with an earthy/musky aroma. This fragrance definitely had more of the base notes than anything elseâ€¦ to my nose anyway. I smelled a powdery musk and woody notes the most with hints of herbal and citrus in the background. Itâ€™s a fresh and lively scent but you have to really like musk to fully appreciate it. If you donâ€™t, this scent may not be your cup of tea.
Strength â€“ for a Yankee candle, I was pretty impressed. In a small room, I would rate this candle an 8 which is great for this brand. Maybe 6 in a medium room which isnâ€™t bad either. Large â€“ I wouldnâ€™t even try.
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish. It just burned veeeeery slow.
Closing to my review:Â
Are you interesting in purchasing Sage & Citrus from Yankee? Head on over to your local Walmart Super Center and you can now smell it before purchasing. Thatâ€™s the best way to shop for candlesâ€¦ the smell test.
I enjoyed Sage & Citrus and am glad I finally reviewed it for Candlefind. It had a bit of everythingâ€¦ earthy notes, musk/perfume notes with a hint of citrus. Very different and unique.
Happy candle hunting!
