I picked up the Yankee Cotton Candle Candle during the 2016 holiday sale. Many of their medium jars were deeply discounted, so I stocked up. The cotton candy fragrance is hard to find in stores, so I saw this as an opportunity to try this one out.
On cold, it smelled nice. The scent was fairly accurate to a ball of cotton candy you get from the fair. Maybe a little more fruity than your typical cotton candy scent, but still pretty close. Once lit, the scent was nearly identical to cold. You get a sugary, fruity scent. The fruit might be a cherry or berry note, but it wasn’t clearly identifiable. It was a sweet, candy like fragrance, very reminiscent to cotton candy.
Scent Rating 3.5 out of 5
With all the large jars we purchase, we started this burn in are large family room. The throw in this room was non-existent. We moved it to the kitchen/dining room, and the throw picked up a bit, but was light at best. From there we moved it to the bedroom, and again, it was very light. Our bathroom was the only real area where we got a true sense of what the candle smelled like. Overall, disappointing.
Scent Throw Rating: 1.5 out of 5
I wanted to try this one out, and after burning it, I regret the decision. The fragrance was nice on cold and I credit Yankee for producing a true-to-life cotton candy fragrance. But, the lack of scent throw would prevent me from repurchasing this candle, even with a discount. Maybe a wax tart would have been a better (and more economical) choice.
