Yankee Candle Winter Wonderland
Advantages: fresh and clean, smell, appearance
Disadvantages: nothing special, not as strong as other Yankee scents
Yankee Candle is an American company who offer a wide range of scented treats for your home. Yankee scents are infused into various sized candle jars, sampler votives, wax tarts and tea lights.
Winter Wonderland is one of many festive scents within the Yankee range. It is available in the above formats but for the purpose of this review, I will be discussing the small house warmer candle jar. This candle jar weighs in at 104g and has a burning time of 25-40hours. The jar is round and made of clear glass and finished off with a slip in lid. Each jar has an individual wick and should be kept trimmed to avoid smoke damage.
Winter Wonderland is presented in a white wax which is infused with natural extracts. The jar features an image label showing a lovely snow scene and outdoor Christmas tree. Yankee describe this scent as..
'So real you can almost hear sleigh bells ... the tingle of a frosty breeze blowing through icy pines'

Winter Wonderland isn't a scent I would have picked up based on the description alone. I bought a set before Christmas and received a small jar of this scent. This particular set has this scent, Christmas Wreath and Christmas Eve - it can still be bought from the Yankee Scents website for £12.99 which is a fair price for 3 jars.
The jar is very pretty and the white wax gives the candle and fresh and clean appearance. When I first removed the lid, I was actually quite taken with the scent. I do normally opt for sweet and fruity or spicy scents and tend to avoid the 'pine' type scents. This one took me by surprise as it had a delicate pine scent but was full of freshness. It also looks lovely and frosty on the surface as the wax melts then turns solid again. Winter Wonderland isn't an evening scent - it is too 'cool' a scent to relax as it burns. It is very much a day time scent which is perfect for burning when doing the housework.
Once the wick has been lit, the scent of Winter Wonderland become noticeable and travel around my home. I chose to burn this one (mainly) in my hall way whilst doing my household chores. It enhanced the 'clean and fresh' feeling of my home after doing my house work and despite not being a warm scent, it is still welcoming. The scent travels well but the main aroma stays within the area the candle is being burned. The rest of my home simply smelled refreshed but without any cleaning type aroma.
Within my hall way, a beautiful, uplifting aroma was noticeable. The main feeling is something fresh and chilled. The pine aroma isn't too strong but I can detect a lovely aroma of snow covered trees. The scent isn't as overpowering as a real Christmas tree in your home and is more subtle and distant. Something I did notice and appreciate from the scent of Winter Wonderland, was a rich, creamy mint scent. This added sweetness to the scent and complimented it perfectly but without detracting from the freshness.

Winter Wonderland is a surprising scent. It is quite distinctive in a refreshing sort of way. I burned the candle for a few hours at a time and when I blew the wick out, the sweetness disappeared but the fresh feeling remained present in my home for a short while. I didn't time the overall burning time of this candle but would estimate I got about 30 hours of lovely scent.
I can highly recommend this scent. It is perfected for burning during the festive months but I do feel it would also be ideal for burning in the warmer months to 'cool' the home down a little.
Overall recommended..4 stars :)
