Sicilian Orange: World Journey

Sicilian Orange is a Yankee Candle World Journey that has been around for a few years, and is still occasionally available as a “find” at Homegoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls or a Yankee Candle Outlet. It is also one of the more popular World Journeys because of its delicious citrus scent.

The original World Journey tumbler candles included 2  labels, one on each side.

One of those labels included a story-like description of the scent. This was a cute feature I wish the World Journeys still had.

Sicilian Orange’s scent description reads: “Experience the delicious beauty of Sicily, one of the shimmering jewels of the Mediterranean, where ancient conquerors left behind magnificence ruins and legendary foods, including sun-rich blood oranges which fill the air with tangy, sweet sensations.”

The other label is the one we still see today with the 3 pictures.

The Scent: A tangy and citrusy-sweet blood orange. It is a true fruity scent that doesn’t smell like an over-sugared or artificial orange drink. It is a true, clean and fresh, orange scent! This one is perfect for a kitchen-type environment or a fun summer scent! B+

The Throw: The throw for Sicilian Orange was a tad disappointing for me…I had only heard incredible things and the throw for me was just average. It was a light to light-medium throw that a a small “scent radius” of about 10 to 15 feet. It wasn’t a terrible throw or by any means scentless…I just had very high expectations! So I give it an average C


So, overall, Sicilian Orange is a nice pure fruit scent that is worth “treasure-hunting” for….but it’s not a scent that would cause me to “buy out the store.”

PS: Jenna and I were in Haverhill, MA this weekend to participate in the Color Me Rad 5k. We had so much fun!

We also dragged our significant others along…..they had a great time too (even if they’ll never admit it!)
