I don't know about you but come Autumn I'm more likely to lean towards indulgent and food scented candles - something that fills the home with a little warmth, richness without any of the calories. The last part is particularly important as I am watching what I eat in a bid to be a little slimmer for the festive season, only to put it all back on and more with the yummy treats. In my experience food scented candles can be really hit and miss so it was with utter blind faith that I ordered Yankee's Salted Caramel candle - I hoped for the best and hoped for the worst.
"Sweet surrender is yours with our luscious gourmand confection of burnt sugar, sea salt and smooth vanilla caramel."
Much to my surprise Yankee's Salted Caramel smells exactly like caramel cake which might not be to everyone's taste but kudos all the same to Yankee for nailing what I deem a fairly complex fragrance. This of course is a rich caramel scent with a slight hint of both vanilla and chocolate, it can be a little sickly sweet if left burning too long but I find it the perfect choice to burn when cooking as it works well with other food scents (even burnt toast ha!). I'm not too sure why Yankee have decided to call this Salted Caramel as there is no salt note which could have been nice to balance they sticky sweet scent of caramel but none the less it is a sweet treat and something that lovers of the cake of the same name shall enjoy!
You can find Yankee Salted Caramel via Yankee Candle with prices starting at £1.25-£19.99 - link
I purchased the large jar which cost £19.99.
Have you tried any of the new Yankee Autumn fragrances yet?
I'm on the look out for some recommendations!
