Juicy Citrus & Sea Salt: Yankee Candle

juicy-citrus.jpgJuicy Citrus & Sea Salt is one of Yankee Candle’s new 2018 spring scents. I was hoping this would be my replacement for Margarita Time… and it seemed to be the most promising of the new scents on cold sniff. My take: it takes second place to Margarita Time.

The Scent: This scent is just okay. It has a slight soapy undertone that distracts from the frozen cocktail scent. The citrus is nice – like a blend of lime and grapefruit and the salt note is wonderful. It’s not quite artificial, but it just doesn’t smell like fresh citrus. Overall, I like the scent… but compared to Margarita Time, I am left just wanting it to have more lime and fruit. B

The Throw: The throw was again just okay. I’d say a light-medium. It was the type of scent my nose got used to quickly and it faded into the background. It was detectable throughout most of my living room, but the throw was a bit subdued for me. C+

Overall, I found Juicy Citrus & Sea Salt to be a let down, especially since I still have a half jar of Margarita Time to compare it to. It’s not a bad scent… just could have been better.

  1. OOh, I have this but haven’t melted yet. On cold, I love it, although, Margarita Time can be a little over the top on lime to me. I think I’ll like it, but I’ll watch out for that soapy note.
    Also, have you gotten a Yankee Spring catalog? I’ve noticed at least 3 scents in the line with Sea salt, it’s definitely a trend in 2018.

    • I hope you don’t get the soap note – most I’ve chatted with didn’t notice it. I just wish the throw were a touch better. Hope you enjoy it!
      I did get the new Catalog – Peaches and Cream got my attention! But you are onto something about the sea salt!
