Yankee Candle Review - Paradise Punch

Wednesday, October 05, 2016

Huge apologies for not posting many candle reviews lately. As I've had the worst hayfever I've not been able to smell much.. (super suckish!) and not only that, I've been quite wheezy with my chest due to an ongoin chest infection which keeps coming back to say hello.. I didn't feel like I could give honest and pure reviews as my nose just wasn't having any of it. Now the warmer weather is cooling off, my allergies have settled down and I've just shaken off this chest infection.

Just to finish off the warmer weather we've had this past week or so, I thought I'd pick the strongest cold throwing candle I could find before we head straight on in to autumn.


My nan and grandad brought this back from America way back in May. I think this is soy wax and this was a 2 wick candle which I completely destroyed in the making of this blog. I don't tend to burn candles these days as I don't like the flames so I usually burn tarts/votives in my electric burner. I chopped this candle up into small chunks and placed a small-ish chunk in my burner.  

Looks like a block of cheese! 
For some reason, this is such longer lasting compared to my wax tarts I usually burn. Usually I get about 2 full evenings from a wax tart and then the scent has gone, finished, kaput. This is still going strong on day 4 and I haven't noticed a huge difference in the strength of fragrance, obviously day 1 was mega strong but I have recently given my nose a rest and haven't burned anything for a while.

It filled the room within about 10 minutes, it also filled the kitchen too. It absolutely flooded the place with a gorgeous summertime scent. Mango, orange and a hint of lemon is what I can detect whilst this was burning. It's very strong, probably on par with Black Cherry ... and we all know that's one of Yankees stronger throws.

I've since heard, that this particular scent is now retired.. booo! It's such a nice fresh, fruity summer fragrance too and rates in my top 10 summer scents.

Strength of fragrance on cold throw - 10
Strength of fragrance on hot throw - 8
Would I purchase again? - Yes

I couldn't actually find a scent description online anywhere for this!
