Pink Hibiscus

Pink Hibiscus is another new Yankee Candle scent that I found at a Yankee Candle outlet a few weeks ago. I’ve seen it now a few times in the outlets…for example, it was there this weekend at the Queenstown, MD outlet mall!

Unfortunately, I absolutely hated it!

This is a great time for me to give my “scent disclaimer.” I will be giving this scent will be getting a low grade, but that does not mean it’s a bad scent! I encourage everyone to sniff for themselves since liking a candle scent is based on personal opinion.

Pink HibiscusThe Scent: an over-bearing floral scent. This read to me a perfume-y and way too flowery. It was a bit stifling and I really just did not like it. I have a (red) hibiscus tree in my house, and it is has a light and sweet scent. This was just a powerful blast of a synthetic flower, to me at least! F+

The Throw: On the plus side, the throw was fairly impressive. It filled up my living room in a solid medium. It was impressive and deserves a solid B+

Overall, if you like floral scents, the throw was pretty excellent on this one and will fill up a large room! It’s just not a scent for me. I gave it a chance, but I hope to never melt this one again!

  1. Pink Hibiscus was part of the 2014 spring line-up in Europe — maybe that’s why you’ve never seen this before. I liked it but it didn’t knock my socks off. 😉 Smelled like shower gel to me.
