Yankee Candle Summer Peach scented candle Review

Best Peach Scented Candles

I believe peach scented candles are amazing for both spring and summer season. I really like peach notes in summer drink types of fragrances which we can buy most often but I feel like peach often gets lost in those mixed fruits scents.

I also love sweeter, more foody scents like a cobbler or a sorbet.

Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa scented candle review

Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa scented candle notes are: mango, peach, citrus, ginger flowers and pink pepper.

I only have wax tarts of Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa because I couldn’t smell it in votive form and I don’t love it enough to buy it in candle form. It’s a nice fruity scent, I get more peach than mango and I most definitely get the ginger and pepper. I can’t get any citrus in it though.

Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa is my summer kitchen scented candle or rather wax tart. I like that it’s not too sweet but rather fresh and sharp. Normally I burn citrus scented candles in my kitchen but during summer and early autumn, I burn the Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa scented candle a lot.

I’m not a fan of food or fruit type scents anywhere but the kitchen so I wouldn’t burn this anywhere else.

One wax tart of Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa will last me about a week, meaning I’ll melt it for 4 hours at a time for 7 days before the wax will lose the scent.

It’s a good fit for the kitchen since it’s not too strong and it doesn’t fill your nose up to a point when you can’t actually smell anything else which I find to be an issue with some other scents.

Yankee Candle Peaches & Berries

Yankee Candle Peaches & Berries is currently only available in large jars. It’s one of my favorite summer fruit scents but I’m having the worst luck with the jars in this fragrance. My local Yankee Candle store doesn’t have this so after trying it in a tart form and falling in love with the scent, I ordered a large jar online. The jar came smashed even though it was packaged really well so I didn’t bother the seller with it, I just melted down the wax and made tarts. I melted my last homemade tart of Yankee Candle Peaches & Berries early this spring and I wanted more. I ordered another large jar online and this one came with no issues but I couldn’t get it to burn right. It kept tunneling like crazy and none of my usual tricks worked so after four failed burns I gave up and made tarts again.

The homemade tarts work fine, the scent throw is a weak 6, one tart will scent my desk area in my office in about 15 minutes and since I don’t really move from my desk once I park myself there, that’s enough for that room.

The official notes in Yankee Candle Peaches & Berries are : peaches, strawberries and raspberries.

Melting Yankee Candle Peaches & Berries I get really true to life ripe peach and strawberries. I’m picky about fruit scents, I really don’t like if they lean candy-ish or artificial at all, but this is a really beautiful natural fruit fragrance.

Yankee Candle Peach Cobbler

Yankee Candle Peach Cobbler was another scent that I had to get from the USA because it wasn’t available here. I got a few tarts and loved the scent so much that I melted all of them in a month. It’s a really good peach scent and I find those are really hard to find so if you have the chance, grab some tarts in this. I wouldn’t recommend the candle as I’ve heard it has no scent throw but my tarts were all a solid 7 and they scented the kitchen in 20 minutes.

The official notes in Yankee Candle Peach Cobbler are : peaches, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey sugar, vanilla ice cream.

Melting Yankee Candle Peach Cobbler I smell the peaches, the cinnamon and a little bit of the nutmeg, lots of sugar and lots of vanilla cream. The bakery note is very light. The fragrance is almost like a peach and vanilla swirl ice cream on cold, but melting it does bring out the spices and the bakery note.

I melted my Yankee Candle Peach Cobbler stash in June and if I can get my hands on more I’ll get a bunch and melt them in the summer, spring and winter. It’s such a nice fragrance I honestly don’t see myself not ever liking it.

Goose Creek Candles Golden Peach Vanilla

I love peach scents but they seem to be really hard to get right in either perfume or home fragrance. They tend to turn out really synthetic or fade out into a general fruity fragrance. I have yet to find my ideal peach perfume and I’m always on the hunt for a good peach scented candle.

The official scent notes in Goose Creek Candles Golden Peach Vanilla are: sliced peaches, orange and lemon zest, cinnamon and brown sugar, buttery cake crumbs and vanilla extract.

Melting Goose Creek Candles Golden Peach Vanilla, it is a very autumnal take on the peach scent. I got the cinnamon and sugar first, and then a blend of peach and vanilla syrup. It’s more like a peach pie filling type of smell. I can’t get the cake notes, but it does smell like baked peaches with loads of vanilla extract and sugar, so like the filling, before you get the crust ready.

It’s a new type of a peach scent for me, I like it for a melt, but for a full jar, I’d need either the cake note or less sugar.

The scent throw on one piece of the wax melt is a 5-7. I could smell the cinnamon and sugar notes throughout the kitchen but in order to get all the notes, I had to sit at the table where I had the melter.


Pretty much all of these smell amazing when layered with Yankee’s Farmer’s Market.

Yankee Candle Farmer’s Market

Yankee Candle Farmer’s Market is a classic scent and a perfect transitional fragrance for late summer, early autumn. I’ve burned a few jars of this during the years and my Mum swears by Farmer’s Market for late September, when she’s done with her apple scents from early September.

Official scent notes in Yankee Candle Farmer’s Market are: sweet berries, juicy apples, succulent peaches and warm spices.

This smells very fruity, sweet and spicy. It smells like apple, berry mix, sugar and cinnamon blend. The fruit is dominant and the spices are hanging out underneath the fall fruit mix to warm it up and add the distinct autumnal feeling. The scent is sweet from the fruit notes but there’s added sugar as well, so it’s almost like smelling fruit jams and marmalades.

I think the name fits the scent perfectly and the scent itself is complex enough that it doesn’t need anything more. I like to add some woody notes though, because at the farmer’s market my family goes to, there are always stands with hand carved wood sculptures and bowls and other kitchenware, so just a slight fresh woody undertone really brings the theme together for me.
