Apple & Pine Needle
I visited my nearest Yankee outlet before the semi-annual sale ended and picked up some great deals. One of which was this medium tumbler of Apple & Pine Needle for only $6.00! Prediction: I like pine scents and I like apple scents, this could be a winner…
Conclusion: sort of? The name was a tad misleading. It’s surprisingly sweet and I couldn’t detect any pine, at all.
Fragrance: Melted caramel is the overwhelming scent. A hint of sweet, juicy apple is present some of the time. The name ‘Caramel Apple’ would have been spot on.
Performance: Very strong. Room-filling for a medium-sized space and nearly filling our large basement family room, while drifting upstairs to the kitchen.
Recommendation: If you want a simple, sugary scent, this fragrance may be the one. It wasn’t unpleasant; however, it bordered on too cloying in its sweetness for me. Also, I was expecting at least a hint of pine mixed in. It’s a retired scent, but I probably wouldn’t get it again anyway. Although, I am inspired to try mixing an apple scent with a true pine and seeing how that blend works out.
Wrapping up the woodlands theme, I’d declare In a Winter Wonderland to be the best and Winter Woods, easily, the worst. Winter themed scents are some of my favorites, but I’ve had my fill. I am hoping that the groundhog’s prediction is correct, because I’m truly looking forward to an early spring!
Now, a hint at the upcoming month’s theme: there’s something warming in the oven…
