What did my Vanilla Extract candle from Yankee smell like?
In my perfect world, I could burn vanilla fragrances all year long and be happy. I enjoy all the variations but my favorites are definitely the sweet bakery vanilla’s – vanilla cake, cream, custards, cookies… Mmmm!! I didn’t know what to expect with this candle and I couldn’t find a scent description which is really weird since I just bought this candle not long ago on Yankee’s site. Maybe it’s seasonal or temporarily out of stock… I don’t know.
Just a little FYI… I don’t even bother lighting Yankee candles in large rooms anymore… they’re just not strong enough. So, I stuck to a small bathroom to test this candle out. Once lit, I’d say it took a good hour or more to get a complete melt pool and once it did, beautiful burn! Love LOVE the two wicks!! The fragrance itself was a nice rich classic vanilla. The scent name “Vanilla Extract” was perfect… that’s exactly what this candle smelled like. A simple and classic vanilla scent.
Scent strength… on a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate this one a 5 in a small room. It wasn’t strong, even with two wicks but what you could smell was very nice.
AWESOME!!!! Perfect and steady flames throughout the life of this candle, clean burning and zero wasted wax. A+ on the burn performance.
Closing to my review:
Vanilla Extract was a decent fragrance but definitely on the lighter side. If you love classic vanilla scents that aren’t too sweet… this is a great candle to try out. Just keep in mind it’s not super strong and would be great in a smaller room.
Burn Performance: 5/5
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
