Yankee Candle Sampler: Creamy Caramel
I bought this sampler a while ago and I have only just got round to using it as I have far too many candles and because I was putting off using this scent as I thought that it may be a bit too strong - but it turned out to be a gorgeous candle/scent!
- Product/scent description (from an online source)
"Indulge in ultimate, mouthwatering luxury this Christmas with the Yankee Candle Creamy Caramel Yankee Candle Housewarmer Jar Candle. Creamy Caramel features the aroma of sugary, gooey lusciousness of buttery rich vanilla caramel, sure to tempt the taste buds."
- About the product
As with all yankee candle samplers this product come shrink wrapped in clear plastic so you can see the colour of the candle wax which in this case is a deep orange shade. This samplers have images on the front of the plastic showing a visual representation of the scent of the candle, in this case the image is that of cubes of caramel in cupcake cases. Due to the neat and simple but rather cute design of the samplers I think they would make great little presents/stocking fillers. Samplers are expected to burn for a maximum of 15 hours although I find none last this long.
- Using the candle, scent, throw and longevity
After removing and disposing of the plastic wrapping I then cut the wick to about 0.5cm in length and I sometimes peal the sticker off the front of the wrapping and stick it onto the outside of the samplers holder so I know the name of the sampler/scent - as I swap between candles fairly often. This candle took about half an hour or so before I started to smell the candle which is quite good and after about an hour the scent is fairly strong but not overly so. The scent is not as strong or as 'caramel like' as I thought it was going to be - this may be a positive point for some and a negative for others. The scent is really gorgeous actually, it smells like caramel (as you would expect) but it also smells like toffee/butterscotch and it smells a little bit like the 'café au lait' sampler too. The scent is also really similar to the Yankee candle 'Danish Butter Cookie' tumbler that I love so much which is great.
The scent strength is good and it is not overly strong or sickly. The scent dispersion is really good with the scent travelling to many rooms on the second floor. As with all yankee candle samplers this one did not last me 15 hours; more like 10 hours because I was burning the sampler for a fairly long time each time I used it which I probably shouldn't have. Overall, the scent is divine, the strength of the scent is good and the scent dispersion/throw is really good - also it smells similar to the yankee candle Danish butter cookie candle which is fairly hard to come by.
- Price and availability
This sampler was purchased from yankeedoodle.co.uk as where all of my older samplers and it was no more than £1.50 which I think is a good price. This scent/candle can be purchased in the form of a medium jar for £16.99. This candle/scent is not very widely available although it can be purchased on specialist candle websites and ebay.
*The scent is just gorgeous - it smells like toffee/caramel/butterscotch
*The strength of the scent is really good as is the scent throw/dispersion
*Not overly strong and it is not sickly, in my opinion
*The longevity of the sampler is good but not as long lasting as I wanted it to be
Thank you for reading my review
Summary: A gorgeous sampler - I will buy again!
