Yankee Candle: Hazelnut Coffee

IMG_20170326_090851298.jpgI 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.

  1. I have been melting a Hazelnut coffee votive in my tart burner and the throw is amazing. I can’t remember how long ago I bought it but it is certainly strong.

    • Also – Mocha Nut Latte is another great coffee scent that was discontinued but brought back as a Treasure a year or two ago.

  2. I’ve picked up a few “Canadian label” tarts at outlets recently and they have been even more hit or miss than usual. Not surprised that you say that this one was a dud. I think they’re all pretty old (can tell from the label layout and wrapper) and from the deepest depths of whichever warehouse they were pulled from. I’m just avoiding any with that kind of label from now on…
