I finally got to melt Salt Water Taffy, one of the new summer 2015 Yankee Candle scents.The scent of salt water taffy is so nostalgic for me, so I am loving this “boardwalk trend” I am seeing in the candle world. Jenna and I spent many summer weekends going to the beaches down Cape Cod, and I remember seeing the salt water taffy being pulled fresh in the windows of the local candy stores.
My quick thoughts: I love this creamy scent, I just wish the throw was a tad stronger!
The Scent: This version of Salt Water Taffy is creamy and fruity with dashes of vanilla. I actually cannot pick out any specific fruit scents, but that mix of fruit is perfectly enhanced by that creamy note! A-
The Throw: I’d call this throw average….I could smell it as a light-medium in my living room, but it quickly faded into the background (aka my nose got used to the scent very quickly.) So, not terrible, and definitely smellable, but I wish I was one notch stronger! B-
So, how does Yankee Candle’s Salt Water Taffy match up to the Better Homes and Gardens Fresh Pulled Taffy? I prefer the Yankee Candle scent! The BH&G version was more fruity, and I enjoy that true cream note which was more dominate in the Yankee Candle version. But, the throw for the BH&G version was superior!
As an aside, I ran my second half marathon today! I am really enjoying my new running hobby! Thank you for all the support! 🙂
