Caribbean Tradewinds

Here is Jenna and Kari’s combined review of Caribbean Tradewinds!


Caribbean Tradewinds is a World Journey that pops up occasionally at Homegoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls and the Yankee Candle Outlets. It is also one of the older World Journeys.

I am lucky enough to have a small tumbler that has the older “double” label design. For anyone new to World Journeys (the highly additive Yankee Candle collection not available in Yankee Candle stores) World Journeys used to have two labels on every candle. The front label is the same as the more recent versions with the 3 pictures highlighting the locations. The second label had a “story-like” scent description.

Scent: This is the first ocean air scent that has not given me a headache! It’s a fresh scent with hints of salt and maybe even that slight masculine scent that I always attribute to ocean water scents. Not bad, but nothing I’d go out of my way to find. B-

ctw2Throw: Unfortunately, the throw is pretty light. I could only smell it if I was right over the candle. Not scentless, but definitely a forgettable throw. D


I love this scent cold. It’s a lovely fresh scent with a hint of sea salt. It may be one of my favorite world journey scents cold. However, when I lit this scent I was a bit disappointed. It doesn’t have a very strong throw. I can only smell it when I get close to it (it smells great up close though!

On a side note, I just got back from a Caribbean cruise and I now know why they call this candle Caribbean tradewinds. It is so windy there–especially in Aruba and Curaçao. The locals there told us it’s always windy. Below is a picture from Aruba–you can see the wind blowing the palm trees!
