Hot Buttered Rum

For 2015, I have decided to burn 1 large jar or tumbler per month. Spoiler: I have already selected my jars for February (Rolling Hills of Ireland), March (Irish Creme), and April (Celebrate!). For January, however, I started the year off strong with Hot Butter Rum from Yankee Candle.

hot buttered rumThe Scent: Hot Buttered Rum reminds me of those orange butterscotch hard candies I always got from my grandparents as a child. It smells just like that: warm, sweet, and buttery! It is truly a butterscotch scent. It can be a tad on the sweet side, but it is divine. It’s one of those scents that I love, but I don’t think I would enjoy drinking (real hot buttered rum, not wax!). B+

The Throw: Wow! This is one of the best throws from Yankee Candle, in my opinion. Most of the time, it was a strong throw that completely filled up my living room. It does see-saw a bit, meaning that there are period when the throw is lower then it will switch to a BAM strong throw. Overall, this one is a true room-filler! A

I am a huge fan of Hot Buttered Rum! I’ve actually reviewed it around this time last year; you can read that tart review here. Anyways, Hot Buttered Rum is retired, but pops up as a treasure and in the Outlets during the holiday season. If you like sweet scents, I highly recommend giving Hot Buttered Rum a try!

  1. I had a tart of Hot Buttered Rum some time ago and liked it a lot!!!

    Great idea to burn one large jar/tumbler per month — and interesting scents as well! Irish Cream seems to be a returning black-band scent and Celebrate! seems to be so new YC don’t even have a picture of it on their website yet. WOW! I’m looking forward to your reviews. 🙂 Did you get them for Christmas?

    Re my wax ban/using-up project: I just finished a large tumbler of French Vanilla. I’m a vanilla junkie and I love this scent. The only scent I like even better is Vera Cruz Vanilla. ❤

    • OO Vera Cruz Vanilla is great (saw it in an outlet and almost bought it!). I got Irish Creme for Christmas (Jenna found it in an outlet) and bought Celebrate! as a sort of Christmas gift for my “husband” (we got it for free after buying so many candles as gifts….it was a 5/$50 sale)! I’ll have a picture up soon 😉

  2. OOHH I LOVE Vera Cruz Vanilla, and have an excellent stash of it, I am happy to report. I too am on a wax ban, as I need to reduce my stock considerably. I love the scents I have; and have others which I have tried and like, but will not repurchase.
