Yankee Candle World Journeys 'Danish Butter Cookie' Small Tumbler
I bought this candle from Yankeedoodle.co.uk and as far as I am aware the 'world journeys' range is not very widely available - even on the internet. There are various scents in this range which is inspired by various places in the world, eg: Danish butter cookie, Australian oasis and Caribbean trade winds.
- About the product
I bought the small tumbler version of this candle and it is my first tumbler candle from Yankee candle (I have had the samplers, small jars, tea lights and large jars before). I really like the packaging for the tumblers as they look fairly expensive, in my opinion and the lids have a rubber seal on the inside so the scent is trapped in the glass tumbler container. The small tumbler is 121g or 4.3 oz. and it is made of glass and the lid is composed of metal and rubber. There are two stickers on each side of this product; one of which has a picture on and the other describes the scent.
- Using the candle
Firstly, you have to make sure that the wick is about 1/2 cm in length and if it isn't cutting it is fairly important; as if the wick is too long the flame will be black of sorts and quite big. It takes about ten to fifteen minutes for the scent to be fairly noticeable once the candle wick has been lit. The scent is just divine! The scent is that of cookies, baking, vanilla, sugar, and bread...gorgeous; although it is not that great if you are on a diet, as the scent makes me crave cookies and cinnamon muffins! The scent is gorgeous and the strength of the scent is fantastic! After about an hour the scent will be fairly strong (and very noticeable) and the scent will have travelled around the entire second floor. The scent strength and dispersion is fantastic and the best of any candle I have ever used. The scent is that strong (but not overly strong or sickly) that I can just have the candle with the lid off next to me on the desk and I will be able to smell it fairly strongly. This candle also burns evenly (on the whole) and the scent is consistent throughout.
Overall, I am very impressed with the scent, the strength of the scent, the scent dispersion and the scent smells really authentic and genuine - it does not small fake. I have been using this in many rooms such as the study which is basically where I spend most of my time, the living room when people come round and in my room as well. This candle is a massive hit in my house and everyone who comes round loves the scent; from my sister, friends, aunties and even my dad, all love the scent. When asked what they think the scent is called the usual responses are: cookies, baking, caramel, toffee and heaven (by my sister).
A fantastic candle all round - well except that the wick on mine did break towards the end and it will not light anymore so I have about half a centimetre of candle that is wasted - although I do just keep the lid off the candle and keep it by the front door to scent the hallway. In conclusions (apart from the wick breaking) this is the best candle I have ever used. Some candles are hardly scented, some don't burn evenly, some don't smell like the description but this one is not one of those candles.
- Price and availability
I bought this candle (in the small tumbler form) from yankeedoodle.co.uk and I purchased this candle for £5 as it was on offer. The large tumbler for this scent is not available but the medium tumbler is and it is priced at £11 (which is a little bit expensive but this candle is so worth it). This candle is also available in small tumbler form (the one I have) for £7 now.
