Yankee Candle Fall Haul 2018

Hello Everyone!


Today I bring you my Yankee Candle Fall Haul 2018.! Yes I'm well aware Fall isn't here yet, but I'd thought I'd get started with this haul since the Fall Candles have taken over! I'm a little excited to share these hauls because this is the first time I've actually posted a Fall Candle Haul featuring pumpkin scented candles! (I also have a Bath & Body Works Candle Haul coming soon) Many of you are aware my dislike for pumpkin foods lol. Well these are candles and not food, and I have to say I really like a few pumpkin scents!

About This Fragrance
A delicious reminder of Thanksgiving dinner…tangy, fresh cranberries with orange zest and raisins.
Fragrance Notes:
Top: Ripened Raspberry, Strawberry Leaf 
Mid: Cranberry, Black Cherry 
Base: Iris, Orange Flower

Top note is the initial impression of the fragrance, middle note is the main body of the scent and base is its final impression.

My Thoughts

I really love Cranberry Chutney! This was one of my favorite candles during the Fall and Winter last year. I like that this candle isn't overly sweet, and the throw is pretty good. As you see I have four of these candles because I love the scent so much!

About This Fragrance

Scrumptious cinnamon apple with a taste of whipped vanilla frosting.
Fragrance Notes:
Top: Apple Slices
Mid: Cinnamon Cider, Sugar
Base: Fresh Vanilla, Nutmeg, Crushed Clove
Top note is the initial impression of the fragrance, middle note is the main body of the scent and base is its final impression.

First Impressions 

I'm on the fence about Sugared Cinnamon Apple. I barely smell a sugar scent. This is more of a cinnamon apple scented candle. I do like the scent, but I'm just not crazy about it on a cold sniff. I smell more of a spice scent than a sweet scent. Hopefully my expectations will be exceeded once I burn this candle.

First Impressions

On a cold sniff this candle smells like a true Macintosh Apple. It's not a sweet apple scent, but more of a fresh apple scent. I smell a slight cinnamon scent mixed with sugar, but I mainly smell apple. I don't get too much of a vanilla scent, but that can change once I start will burning this candle. Some candles have a tendency to smell different once they're burning.




About This Fragrance

A mouthwatering temptation of vanilla cake, cinnamon, sweet cream and pumpkin.

First Impressions

This candle smells amazing! I love the scent! Personally I don't smell much of a pumpkin scent or cinnamon scent, but more of a vanilla cream scent with a hint of spice. All the scents blend well together making a sweet scented Fall candle. Luscious is a perfect word to describe this candle.

As you can see 3 of these candle scents are new in my collection, so I only could write up a first impressions post (except for Cranberry Chutney). I'll probably include a follow up post on my opinions in a future post. If you want to check out the items in stores, you can view my Yankee Candle Fall Preview 2018

Great photos, thanks for the information.

Lol! I've been trying to wait until next month to burn the Fall Candles, but I may burn one soon! Next to Bath & Body Works Frosted Cranberry, Cranberry Chutney is my other favorite cranberry scent!

Pilar said...

I can't wait to burn these candles! I hope the throw will be strong!

Pilar said...

I love candles too!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

I agree! I love Fall!

Pilar said...

Thanks, and you're welcome!

Marie said...

Great haul! Luscious Pumpkin Trifle is one of my favorites now! I look forward to your BABW Fall Candle Haul!

The cranberry chutney sounds just right for Thanksgiving. I love both cranberry and orange for treats, so this one would suit me. You know, I love the taste of vanilla, but I don't care for the scent of it on candles. It's kind of like you with the pumpkin foods and scents. Thanks for sharing these Fall candles, Pilar. I may put out a few Fall decorations this weekend. You've got me thinking of Fall. This is a lovely display with your cute signs.

Looks like you are set fro fall with all your candles Pilar! The description of the Luscious Pumpkin Trifle sounds delicious ;p

Pilar said...

Thanks Marie!

Pilar said...

You're welcome Sheri! I burned Cranberry Chutney so much during the holiday season last year. I agree this would be a great candle for Thanksgiving! I like vanilla candles, but not all of them. If the vanilla is too strongly scented in the candle it will give me a headache. I hope you have fun Fall decorating!

Pilar said...

I'm ready for Fall! I hope that Luscious Pumpkin Trifle has a strong throw!

Lisa said...

Cranberry Chutney smells so good! This is the first year I was open to trying pumpkin scents. There are a few I like. I'm still not a fan of the taste of pumpkin though!

Pilar said...

I'm starting to love Fall Candles more this year! Hopefully one day Yankee Candle will be more available internationally etc!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

I always forget to light candles, so I am still burning the ones I bought two years ago...

Pilar said...

I saw that too! I've been getting numerous emails from Yankee Candle with different sales within the past week.

Pilar said...

I had a candle from four years ago that I was burning, but I had to exchange it since the smell was different. The candle smelled really old and the scent was fading lol

Nerline Germain said...

I love each picture and the setting. Great review.

Pilar said...

Thanks Nerline!

Kristen Alpert said...

Love yankee candles. I need to go back to that store maybe I will after thanksgiving like I did last year. Can't wait to see what candles you get next.

Pilar said...

I remember you told me you and your cousins went last year. I like Yankee Candle, but the candles need to throw stronger. The Summer Candles I picked up were a total miss. No throws on most of the scents I had.
