Spicy Pepperberry & Spruce is one of Yankee Candle’s new 2017 holiday scents. I absolutely hated this one! The blend just did not work for me at all.
The Scent: I just hated this scent. It smelled like a weird peppery cookie with some musk and an expired ‘pine’ scented cleaner. It was almost like a generic sugar cookie artificial scent that was rubbed with one of those pine-tree car fresheners with just a touch of artificial cinnamon. I just hated it. D
The Throw: The throw was surprisingly decent. I’d say a solid medium. It filled up my living room pretty quickly and for a few hours. It was one of those scents that filled the whole room and created an ambiance (aka, did not fade but didn’t overwhelm my senses.) I was happy with the throw. B+
I encourage you to give this one a sniff on your own. It actually has pretty decent reviews, many noting that it smells like the retired Holiday Sage. This one was just not my type of scent. I found it to be too busy and artificial. The clash of spice and spruce just made the whole time it was melting unpleasant for me.
