Yankee Candle Autumn Pearl is a conceptual fragrance that should smell like creamy blend of lush orchid, vanilla and delicate freesia.
Burning Yankee Candle Autumn Pearl I would describe it very differently. To me, it smells like fresh apples with a patchouli base and some floral notes thrown in the middle, overlaid with a perfumey scent.

When I see “orchid” as a main note I pretty much know the candle will smell like perfume. Orchid in home fragrance pretty much means it’s going to smell like an exotic floral perfume on the intense side. Yankee Candle Autumn Pearl is really not an intense candle though. Yes, it smells like a floral perfume with apple and patchouli notes but it’s very light. If you remember Madagascan Orchid, this is a about a seventh of that in strength.
I like the apple in here, it fits very well with the jasmine and orchid. The patchouli gives it a darker, more earthy vibe and I’m not a big fan, but again; this is a delicate, light fragrance so it’s not like any of these notes are assaulting you.
I’ve paired it with a vanilla bean candle and really liked the mix.
I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Autumn Pearl for Fall 2018 and I’ll talk to you soon!
