I was able to browse my nearby Yankee Candle Outlet last week and was a little disappointed. I didn’t “score big” or find anything rare and/or new. BUT I did find a few notable mentions.
1) Italian Limoncello: I did manage to find one of the new World Journeys! Italian Limoncello is a nice, and unique, lemon ice scent…..it reminds me a tad of Country Lemonade (but with less sugar!). I know Jenna has already found this and will post on it soon!
2) Shea Butter: This is a new scent (I think for the UK…not sure…anyone know!?) It was nice….a milky and creamy scent that reminds me of the lightly scented body butters my mother used to have. It was different, but surprisingly pleasant!
3) Vintage Wine Collection: (may not be the actual collection’s name….but that’s what I call it!). I just love this group of White Zinfandel, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Boy, I could go for a glass of wine right now! If you like Yankee Candle’s Vineyard or Napa Valley scents…give these a try!
4: Cannoli Cream Puff: I almost broke my wax ban again for this one! Yum! My mother-in-law is Italian (and a vegetarian like me)…we often would make these easy and delicious “cone-olis” we saw in the Food Network magazine.
5: St.Patrick’s Trio (Fresh Mint, Sugared Apple, Fruit Fusion): While I appreciate this lovely tri-scent blend…these scents just don’t mesh well (in my opinion). I know they were trying to create the Irish flag…but Fruit Fusion and Fresh Mint? Not for me!
My main hope was to find tarts of the new summer line…I was able to come home with a Salt Water Taffy tart and Cotton Candy votive! Those reviews will be occurring soon!
