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.
The 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!
