I got this holiday scent on clearance. Cinnamon Pine was part of the Yankee Candle’s (now retired) Simply Home line that is currently on clearance at my local Kohl’s. I have been experimenting with mixology lately and what’s a better holiday mash-up than cinnamon and pine tree?
The Scent: I loved this scent cold, but there was something off about it once it melted. It was more of a ‘red hots’ cinnamon candy with a dash of bathroom cleaner pine. The cinnamon note was very artificial and both over-powered and clashed with the pine. It’s too bad, but the cold sniff gave me hope that this combo could work. D+
The Throw: It took forever for this one to start to be detectable (seriously, like a few hours), but after that, it was a pleasant light-medium. So it was good, but not amazing. It did last a long time though. C+
Overall, Cinnamon Pine was disappointing – but made me want to try creating my own Christmas mix-up!
