Yankee Candle Maple Walnut review; Returning Fall 2017

Yankee Candle Maple Walnut is a returning favorite for Fall 2017. I haven’t seen this scent in so long and I grabbed a jar as soon as it popped up on the website. Not being a big maple fan, this is my favorite maple scent from Yankee. Maple syrup is not really a thing around here so I don’t have any memories or great foody experiences that would connect me to the note. So just going by the scent alone, I find it very sweet and thick and heavy.


Comparing Yankee Candle Maple Walnut to Maple Pancakes and Yankee Candle Gingerbread Maple this is still very sweet and quite heavy but the nuttiness of the walnut note fits so well. It smells like caramelised nuts at the fair but instead of that almost burnt caramel you get the gooey maple.

It’s a really great take on a maple note, it’s less intense than say Goose Creek maple fragrances and much lighter than BBW maple fragrances so I prefer it.

There’s not a whole lot more to say about it since it’s a pretty straight forward scent. For layering, go with any cookie candle, a plain cake candle or go for a strong cedar fragrance for something different.

I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Maple Walnut review!
