Newest Yankee Candle Fall Scents

It’s that time of the year…new fall yummy scents from Yankee Candle!

Well kids are back to school, just for one day due to the Tropical Storm Fay. Lots of rain, little sun, bot other than that, not too bad.  I figured I would sit down and keep you all informed on the newest of the new. I have worked my way through the tarts on all and will give you a brief description of what my sniffer smelled.

  • Orchard Pear – Ripe, succulent pears, fresh from the tree, warmed with notes of jasmine and cognac. I thought it was a nice warm spicy pear. Not at all like the old spice pear. This has more of an out in the fields smell to it.
  • Blueberry Scone – Yummy! The delicious aroma of English quickbread with sweet blueberries, rich cream and a hint of vanilla. I love scones and this scent is pretty true. It is very blueberry with a touch of sweet scones.
  • Candied Apple – From the county fair … crisp red apples coated with a mix of melted sugar, orange, pear and vanilla Very sweet, and a good renditions of a candied apple from the fair or halloween.
  • Cinnamon Sugar – A warm, sweet sprinkle of heaven … brown sugar and cinnamon with notes of nutmeg and vanilla. This one has been one of my top sellers for the new ones. Anthingcinnamon is popular year round for me. A nice, warm, cozy smell that I find my enjoy.
  • Evening Air – The crisp breeze of a fall night warmed with notes of clove, geranium, basil, cedarwood and musk. My customers who like Cottage Breeze and Midsummer’s night are enjoying this one. Masculine Undertones to it.
  • Mulling Spices – Autumn cheer … the warming aroma of hot apple cider infused with cinnamon, clove and vanilla. I ahve lots of customers asking me of this is similar to the old Baking Spices, it is in the fact that it is a spicy scent but this one does not use the warm spices as much as the deep, earthy baking spices. You can definitely smell the clove in it and the apple adds a sweetness to it.
  • Green Bamboo – The exotically sweet freshness of green bamboo leaf with notes of freesia, pear, teakwood, and musk. This one is a bit weak for me but the people who like Jasmine Green Tea will like this one.
  • Chocolate Cupcake – This creamy sweet aroma of cocoa, buttercream and vanilla is an irresistible treat. Very rich, very chocolaty. there is no subtle sweetness to this one. If you are looking for a strong, sweet bakes smell…this is it.
  • Cafe’ Au Lait – So warm and enticing … rich, fresh brewed coffee topped with milk froth and a dash of cinnamon. Not as good as the old coffee to me, a bit creamier and warmer with the cinnamon added. Think Starbucks!
  • Autumn Gold – A treasure trove of fall favorites … spicy cinnamon and clove with notes of cranberry and vanilla. The color is deceiving on this one. It will be great for cooler weather when family & Friends are coming over.

The last 3 on the list, Autumn Gold, Cafe’ Au Lait and Chocolate Cupcake are Yankee Candle store exclusives. I don’t think that is too important as they are the weaker of the new ones.
