Continuing on with my “melt all my old tarts,” I decided to re-try Christmas Eve, an annual holiday classic from Yankee Candle.
The Scent: Christmas Eve is a candy-like scent. In my opinion, it doesn’t ‘remind’ me of childhood Christmas Eves. It is a sweet and sugary plum scent (I get a gummy sugared plum scent). It is pleasant, but the more I try this scent, the less I like it. In essence, it reminds me of the gum drop Christmas tree garlands children make, but just falls flat as a quintessential holiday scent for me. C
The Throw: One reason I keep trying this scent is because the throw is pretty awesome. It is a consist medium to medium-strong that fills up a large room (perfect for holiday parties I suppose!) A
I guess I’m just not a huge fan of Yankee Candle’s Christmas Eve….but don’t get me wrong, I know plenty of people who LOVE this scent and thinks it captures the child-like innocence of Christmas perfectly.
I guess it comes down to nostalgia for me….Home for the Holidays is the scent that reminds me of my holiday childhood…and is a scent I just much prefer!
