I was so excited when Yankee Candle and the Girl Scouts announced they were making a candle collection…..but that excitement faded from a lack of ‘desirability’ of the candle scents inspired by the iconic cookies.
Enter the Thin Mint car jar….a classic Girl Scout cookie. At the base is a lovely mint and chocolate combination that reminds me of pulling a sleeve of thin mints out of the freezer.
But a second later, that mint-chocolate combination was gone and overtaken by the scent of old cardboard.
Yes, the car jar smells like cardboard lightly dipped in mint and chocolate oil. It is terrible. This Girl Scout-Yankee Candle mash-up is two thumbs down in my book- which is so sad since the mint and chocolate should be an easy home run!
