Last weekend, after graduation and commencement on Friday, I took my parents to one of the two Yankee Candle headquarters in America. Luckily, I only live about 10 minutes away from Deerfield, so it’s a trip that I’m able to make quite often! My parents treated me to a few candles, so I thought I’d let you have a little sneak peek into what my room will be smelling like over the next few months!
The first candle I picked up was Summer Storm – it’s so unbelievably fresh! It has almost a cologne-like scent to it, but still some sort of floral scent, too. There’s also a little hint of citrus in there, as well. It literally does smell like a storm passing through in the summer months – that scent you get in the middle of a stormy downpour? Well, that is this!
I also grabbed Beach Walk: another extremely fresh scent for my room. I feel like, especially in the summer, I don’t want those cloying scents that you can get away with in the winter. This scent kind of smells like sea air – there’s definitely some kind of “green” note in there, too. One of my friends described it as “soapy,” but I think she’s lying. It really smells like you’re walking along a beach.
The final candle I grabbed was a mini size of Soft Blanket. I grabbed the mini size mainly because I wasn’t super sure on the scent – it’s not cloying, but it’s certainly not “fresh.” There’s some kind of vanilla and musk in there – it almost smells a little talc-like. This is going to be one that I burn carefully, I think – too much and I’m worried I might get a headache!
