I was so excited to try Yankee Candle’s new Cotton Candy scent! Nothing screams summer to me like boardwalk treats! I lived in Bristol, RI for 4 years and have fond memories of the 4th of July carnival and parade (4th of July is a HUGE deal in Bristol). This Cotton Candy scent brings me back to my early 20’s!
The Scent: A sweet and slightly fruity cotton candy! It is sugary and soft, and has that hint of “pink” flavor that cotton candy has. Personally, I hate cotton candy (WAY too sweet for me), but I love the smell and boy does it bright me back to Bristol, RI! B
The Throw: The throw, unfortunately, was just okay. It was on the light to light medium scent that quickly faded into the background. It’s not scentless, but it was pretty forgettable. I just wish it was 2 notches stronger! C-
So, I liked Yankee Candle’s Cotton Candy a lot. BUT, I tried the Everyday Luxe Cotton Candy scent last year and it blows this one out of the water!
