What’s That In My Melter? Cinnamon Vanilla votive, Yankee Candle Company

I recently melted a Yankee Candle Cinnamon Vanilla votive in my bulb melter (1.7 ounces, 40W bulb). I have previously reviewed the large jar yankee-candle-cinnamon-vanilla-votivecandle, and it was then that I discovered that I loved this YC scent. It’s more than cinnamon + vanilla…it actually smelled like some baked goods. A cookie, maybe? I’m not sure, but the scent was fantastic. The scent strength and throw were good – this scent filled up the room it was in, and I could smell it if I stood in the doorway. Still, not super strong, which is what I would have preferred.

This irresistible blend of ground cinnamon and rich vanilla is inspired by the refreshing horchata, a popular drink.

Have you tried Cinnamon Vanilla from YC? What are your thoughts?

Happy candle burning ~

  1. Sounds nice though I admit this is not one I’d have put on the top of my list when shopping. Sounds kind of plain.

  2. MMM, I smelled this in the store and liked it but ended up getting some other scents. I’ll purchase eventually.
