I’m on a Yankee Candle kick and Apple Cider was on my radar. I bought the large housewarmer jar recently and couldn’t wait to burn it. The label shows a couple of cups of hot apple cider with sticks of cinnamon in them. There are a few apples in the background. The wax itself is a pretty deep red and this housewarmer jar has a single wick.
A welcoming aroma of hot cider spiced with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
The cold sniff is fantastic! There’s a perfect balance between the sweet apple scent and the spices. Mmmmm….great cold throw! I lit this large jar and left it in my small powder room first to get a feel for the throw. I see incredible reviews for this scent on the YC website, so I must say I was disappointed. I did get a very mild apple cinnamon scent throw from this candle in my smallest room. It smelled fantastic! The throw just wasn’t that great. I eventually moved it to a couple of other rooms in my house hoping for different results. I never did get much scent throw from this candle. Yankee Candle has a great return policy, but I didn’t bother with it. I enjoyed the ambiance from this candle anyway and the scent, when I could smell it, was fantastic.
The candle burn was just fine. It took a while to get a full melt pool. These housewarmer jars are fairly slow burning candles, which I do not mind. I usually use my Illuma-Lids for these jars because the flames on these can get out of hand. But I did get a full wax melt pool with only a little bit of a wax rim.
Overall, I’m disappointed with this candle and it won’t be a repurchase for me. I do have a wax tart in this scent and I’m hoping for better results.
Have you tried Apple Cider from Yankee Candle? What are your thoughts?
Happy candle burning ~
