I have a thing where I cannot burn a new candle until the one I am currently burning is finished. So when I am burning a large jar….it can be up to 3 weeks before I try out a new candle! (I do make an exception for “tart” breaks.)
My large jar of Key Lime Pie from Yankee Candle is why the candle reviews have been slow.
Overall, I enjoyed Key Lime Pie. It had that sweet and tangy lime scent that I love, with the bonus additions of vanilla and butter. This candle somehow made me feel like a chilled and freshly made Key Lime Pie was sitting right in front of me! The scent is delicious and amazing.
However, I must admit that I prefer Vanilla Lime, a scent currently available at Yankee Candle. (Key Lime Pie is a retired scent sometimes available as a Treasure.)
Additionally, the throw on this large jar was good, but left me wanting more. I stand by my “throw grade” of a B. I could smell this scent, but it was a light-medium to medium that could be upped a notch. Again, I prefer the throw of Vanilla Lime.
I will miss Key Lime Pie, but I feel like snatching a few tarts of Vanilla Lime will help with my address for the end of this scent!
