Aromatic Orange & Evergreen: Yankee Candle

aromatic orange and evergreenAromatic Orange & Evergreen is one of Yankee Candle’s new holiday 2017 scents. Is it just me, or are this year’s holiday scents from Yankee Candle uninspired and not exciting? Even the colors seem dull. Anyways, I hated this scent.

The Scent: It smelled powdery, almost like an older perfume with a touch of baby powder. There was a hint of dried orange peel, but I could not detect any evergreen. It reminded me of Sage & Citrus (I’m not particularly fond of this scent), only with less herbal notes and more of a ‘grandmother’s perfume’ type of scent. I was not a fan. D+

The Throw: The throw was on the light side. You could only smell it if you happened to be right next to the tart warmer. It did not carry very well and was instantly forgettable. D

Overall, Aromatic Orange & Evergreen had both a poor throw and an awkward scent. It did not remind me of the holidays, and was overall one of my least favorite scents of this year.
