Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was their large tumbler candle jar - a tall, cylindrical jar with two wicks. The lid was silver and had a raised design around the edge. Yankee Candle was embossed on the lid. The label showed a clear jar of kitchen spices, nicely layered. A stack of orange slices on the side. The company name and scent name were clearly displayed. The wax was an orangey brown color. Very pretty jar. 4/5
  • Scent: This scent was much better than I expected. I went in thinking it would be all spice, spice, spice. There were spices present (cinnamon with a little hint of clove) but it was tempered well with the smell of the citrusy orange. It all blended well together to make for a warm, comforting scent. This was NOT a spicy scent, per se. Spices were noticeable but not the predominant notes (to my nose). 4.5/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw on this candle was moderately strong. I got the best performance in the smallest room where it filled that room with scent - enough to know a candle was burning but not overpowering. In the other rooms, it was more of a background scent. It was completely lost in the large, open living area. 3/5
  • Performance: Great burn from this candle. It took a while to get a full melt pool (even with two wicks), but I did eventually get one. The melt pool was nice and deep. The flames did tend to get a little out of control at times and I needed to keep a close eye on them. This candle lasted a long time - 85 hours right about hit the mark. 4.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Great CS with Yankee Candle. This order shipped fast and I had no problems with the order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5 (Technically 4.2 but rounding down for scent throw.)
