Intro To My Candle Review
The Easter Bouquet candle from Yankee Candle Company is one of the candles in their Easter 2020 line up. While I’ve been disappointed with Yankee Candle large jar candles for a long time, I couldn’t resist trying the trio of Easter scents in large jars from them this year. I’ve given an overall review previously, but I wanted to make sure to hone in on each individual candle. Easter Bouquet was easily my favorite, so it’s the first one up!
The large jar candle was in their standard apothecary style with a gorgeous green coloring to the wax. The label showed a beautiful floral bouquet (loving the slimmer labels!) and there was a single, thick, well-centered wick. No surprises with the look.
On cold sniff, this candle had such a fresh, green scent. It was floral but not overly floral, if you know what I mean. Just beautiful! Looking at the scent description:

Going back to the cold sniff, I could certainly smell the greenery and the beautiful mix of florals. I did get a little perfumey but I thought that was mostly due to the floral notes rather than musk. I wasn’t getting any of the top notes on cold sniff. I was excited to burn it and see what would happen!
I started this candle out in a small bathroom, as I was anticipating the scent to be light. I was wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. It was fabulous! So fresh and green and floral-ly. I was swooning! I could not pick out individual floral notes, but it did really smell like I was sticking my nose into a fresh floral bouquet. How do they do that???
I never did get the scent of apples or melons, but I did get that buzz of an ozone note while the candle was in the bathroom. I did move this candle out to a larger space since it was throwing so well. I lost the ozone-y scent in that space but I did pick up more of the musk. That may have just been because the top notes had already dissipated, but still – I never did pick them up. Overall, that didn’t matter to be because it was still a fantastic scent. I thought in a medium sized room the throw was fantastic and the scent strength itself was pretty good.
How Did My Candle Perform?
This candle performed well. I did have a small rim of wax that hugged the mouth of the jar during the initial burn, but that evened out as the candle burned down further. I did notice some black sooting at times that I let the candle flame get too large. As long as I regularly trimmed my wick, all was good.
Closing To My Candle Review
Easter Bouquet was easily my favorite of the three Easter candles from Yankee Candle this year. I thought the burn was good and it had a surprisingly good scent throw. It should perform well in a medium sized room. I do think that in a large, open space the scent might get a little lost, so you may need two. Even if you’re not a floral fan, I would give this one a try because it is truly a beautiful scent without being “too” floral. If you are a floral fan, be sure to check out our recommendations for the 6 best floral candles. This candle didn’t make that list because we had not tried it out at that time, but I think it could certainly be a #7.
