Last week, I reviewed the disappointing Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake by Goose Creek.
So last night, I decided to try Yankee Candle’s new Spring 2016 scent Strawberry Lemon Ice! Now this is how berry-lemon is supposed to smell!
The Scent: This smells like a strawberry lemonade slushie! The strawberry note is more realistic, sweet, and fresh and is balanced by a tart and sweet lemon scent. It is a sweetened strawberry-lemon, but not overly sugary. I do wish there was a touch more lemon, but overall very nice! A-
The Throw: I’d place this as a medium throw. It didn’t overtake my living room, but was definitely present for many hours. It’s the type of throw that you get used to after a while and forget about, then get a sniff and remember ‘wow this is nice’. So not disappointing, but still leaving you wanting it up a notch. B
Okay, so in my opinion, Yankee Candle’s Cherry Lemonade is the better fruit-lemon scent. The throw is just better. But, if you want a strawberry-lemonade scent, or to be immersed into summer….this one is worth checking out!
