I was pretty bummed out when Yankee Candle’s Cafe au Lait was discontinued, but I assumed that Hazelnut Coffee would stay in the line-up as a substitute. Unfortunately, Hazelnut Coffee is also now retired. So I was stoked to find a tart of this scent at my local Yankee Candle outlet.
The Scent: A rich, nutty, and almost caramel-like coffee scent. Hazelnut Coffee is a roasted nut and roasted coffee type of scent with just the slightest hint of sugar. It is not a sweetened scent (yay), rather a flavored coffee. I’m a big fan, but still prefer just a straight up coffee scent. B+
The Throw: Unfortunately, this one was basically a dud. The throw was weak and was barely smellable even right next to the tart warmer. Too bad. F+
Overall, I am really craving a solid coffee scent. While I don’t mind Cafe Fresco, I prefer one without all the cream and sugar bells and whistles. Sigh.
