Yankee Candle Salted Caramel Review

Yankee Candle Salted Caramel


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!

  1. I used to love Yankee Candles but I find now they all smell like cake or foodstuffs. Seems a bit odd to have a living room smelling of food I haven't got. I'm trying to find a nice Autumn/Winter scented candle from them for cosy nights in but can just find food smelling ones :(

  2. Hated this, gutting because it would have been my dream scent. Too sickly and synthetic :(

  4. Sounds good! Are those the amazing Thorntons caramel-y squares in the background?

    I'm using French Vanilla all the time, think it got discontinued but it's probably the best vanilla candle ever.

  9. I adore Yankee Candle. I love how you only need the candle lit for 10 minutes and the aroma just sticks. I still have about half remaining of a small jar of 'Christmas Cookie' from last year because even though it's used a lot, it's soon blown out. Love love love Yankee Candle. I really want to try Bath & Body Works Candles too.

  13. This sounds delicious! I love warm, autumn scents however I struggle when it comes to how much I'm willing to spend on something like candles. Do you have any yummy more cost-effective autumn candle suggestions?

  21. Every time I walk past Yankee Candle I debate whether to go in and buy this, been burning Fireside Treats lately and that smells equally heavenly
