Yankee Candle Thanksgiving Scents Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
The Yankee Candle Company Thanksgiving Collection
Our family is a big fan of The Yankee Candle Company. We frequently have their candles burning in our kitchen. My wife loves their fall scents, like Apple Cider, Spiced Pumpkin, and Vineyard. This fall, they decided to come out with three fragrances that resemble that of a Thanksgiving dinner, specifically Turkey & Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, and Sweet Potato Pie. In short, I'm reminded of the Meatloaf song Two Out of Three Ain't Bad.

The Yankee Candle Company Cranberry Sauce CandleThe Yankee Candle Company Sweet Potato Pie Candle
First, the favorites, Cranberry Sauce and Sweet Potato Pie. These two hit the scent right on the mark. With the Cranberry Sauce candle, you get a strong scent of jellied cranberries. Not too overwhelming and definitely smells like when you first open up a can. The Sweet Potato Pie candle smells like you are actually baking the pie, not eating it. Very strong smell of sweet potatoes with some vanilla for the marshmallow topping and nutmeg to boot. Probably my favorite of the three. Great scent to have around a home in the fall.
The Yankee Candle Company Turkey and Stuffing Candle
Lastly, the not so favorite, Turkey & Stuffing. With this candle, they hit the scent right on the button, too. The problem, the savory stuffing scent overwhelms the turkey smell. I'm not so big a fan of the smell of celery and sage/herbs and there's just too much of it. That's too bad, as I liked the other two so much. Of course, if you are a fan of herbs, you'll love this candle, too. That just isn't us.

In the end, three scents that will definitely get your mouth watering. Good overall job, with two clear favorites in the bunch. I can't wait to see what they come up with for the next holiday. Let's see, for Easter, I can imagine Spiral Ham, Hard-Boiled Eggs, and perhaps Chocolate Bunny Ears. What holiday scented candles would you like to see them put out?

  1. I use to have my own candle business and always compared mine to Yankee to improve beyond theirs. Lets just say I was very partial to mine :) love the review of the cranberry scent. Enjoy those berries! I'll definitely will be on the look out for it. Thanks!

  2. I don't think I would like the Turkey and Stuffing one either, but the sweet potato pie sure sounds good. I like the Fall scents too. My favorite fall candle is apple pie.
