Yankee Candle Harvest Time Collection Review

I am continuing my review of all of the Yankee Candle scents that we are getting in the UK over the course of this year. Today I'm talking about their 4 new Autumn launches called Harvest Time. I will be giving each a score out of ten after I've sampled them. I like to get the tarts/melts in all the new fragrances when they're released to try as I find it's the best & most cost effective way to trial fragrances before deciding whether I want to buy a jar. Melts generally throw out a strong scent in its purest form as there is no wick.

Honey Clementine | "Refreshing orange takes a sweet turn in this honey-dipped citrus delight." I really liked this fragrance, it is a sweet, creamy orange as opposed to some of the more bright, zesty orange scents that Yankee offer and citrus scents, particularly orange, are usually my favourite. However I found the throw to be disappointingly weak, I may have just got a Melt with a low amount of fragrance oils in I suppose so maybe I will give it another try! Still a very yummy scent. 7/10

Autumn Night | "The autumn evening invites with brisk earthiness and dreamy interludes of lavender and woodland notes." I fell in love with this fragrance much more than I thought I would, it's very fresh & sophisticated like a handsome man's cologne! I find this really relaxing to have on in the evening maybe because it has some lavender notes in there. Just think of that fresh, woody scent you get going for a crunchy walk in the woods during the autumn. That's completely what this evokes for me! 9/10

Rhubarb Crumble | "Straight from the oven, warm flavours of tangy rhubarb with brown sugar and vanilla are undeniably delicious." I genuinely think this one is delicious! I love rhubarb and when you first start to melt/burn this one you're hit with tangy rhubarb, some delicious raspberry notes and a lingering biscuity crumble! After a while though I did find it got slightly sickly so I'd only like this one on for a few hours in the evening. I've bought some tea lights in this scent as you can burn those for a little or as long as you like without fear of tunnelling. 8/10

Ebony & Oak |  "Woody oak, pine and ebony make an elegant forest fragrance with subtle touches of eucalyptus and patchouli." Unlike the Autumn Night scent which I enjoy I did find this one a bit too masculine/cologne like for my personal taste. It had a good strong throw that lasted. I think if you want to find a fragrance that the man in your life would like as a gift (or to finally get them to appreciate your candle obsession!) then this or Autumn Night would be perfect options. 6/10

Overall my favourite out of the quartet is Autumn Night & one I would definitely be repurchasing. I think, personally, from all the launches this year this set feels the most seasonal. The warm, comforting scents and masculine, woody notes as well as the colours really give the feeling of Autumn. 

Have you tried any of these new fragrances yet? If so what are your favourites?


My Favourite Online Yankee Candle Retailers:

The Official Yankee Candle UK Site ~ Check out their 'Special Appearances' section for US Exclusives!
Yankee.co.uk ~ I love the sets of melts & votives they do when the new fragrances come out each quarter, so I can sample the newbies before buying any jars.
Candle Scentral ~ My local Yankee Candle store sells online too! They sell the Yankee Candle special appearance candles as well as Flamingo Candles.
Yankee Scents 4U ~ An amazing site where you can purchase tons of US exculsives, plus old/retired fragrances & candle accessories that you cannot find on any other websites!
QVC UK ~ Great for their special value sets, exclusives and trios of large jars! 
Temptation Gifts ~ Probably have the most competitive prices for Yankee Candles on the web!

  1. Love your review! Such a good idea to try them in the tarts first, especially love the sound of the rhubarb one!

  2. I really love tarts so much - i think the smells linger so much more when they are melted rather than belt via a candle! Lovely post!

    1. I agree, I think it's just a purer fragrance! I do enjoy the flickering light of a candle at this time of year though. xx

  3. Honey clementine sounds lovely! I smelt the rhubarb crumble one the other day and I was a little disappointed xx

    1. Rhubarb Crumble smells better when it's actually melting I think, on cold sniff you don't get so much of the fruitiness! xx
