Yankee 'Harvest' Candle

Yankee Candle 'Harvest' review

Yankee Candle Harvest*. £19.99 large jar

Autumn brings the start of some exciting times. We have Halloween, Fireworks nights and then the build up to Christmas. The Harvest candle from Yankee candles somehow seems to blend all these together, to form a warm and comforting aroma. 
"The rich hues of the harvest - with golden spices softened and smoothed by the addition of sweet autumn fruits and musk - come together in an inviting blend" Yankee Candle
Christmas scented candles tend to be very sweet with the blend of candy and rich spices - which sometimes can be a bit heavy for this time of year. This is a nice transition scent that houses a gentle sweetness which stems from the cinnamon, sweet apples and pumpkin. And has an almost aniseed vibe coming from the cloves, which cuts through the heavy sweetness to reveal a rich welcoming fragrance.  There's also a slight spicy twang to it with the addition of musk, which is warm and comforting - just like a fluffy blanket and perfect for this time of year. 
The aroma fills the room and rooms around it with the vast throw power that is encased in the large jar, but does not over power the room, just adding a soft warming glow.
This and many other Autumnal scents can be found on the Yankee Candle website.
What fragrances are you captivated by this time of year?
