Juicy 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.
