Yankee Candle Spiced White Cocoa scented candle Review; returning 2017 fragrance

Yankee Candle Spiced White Cocoa is back from 2016 for the Holiday 2017 season. I’ve said before that all noses are different and while there’s a growing number of people in the USA that are commenting on their new Yankee Candles having little to no scent, I have yet to encounter a piece of wax from Yankee Candle that I can’t smell. I also have a large family that always comments on my home fragrance, so I know they are able to smell it as well. But I can absolutely differentiate between a strong candle and a light candle and Yankee Candle Spiced White Cocoa is on the light side.

Yankee Candle Spiced White Cocoa smells like hot cocoa drink. You get the frothy, watered down cocoa smell and a little tiny bit of nutmeg. It’s not a hot chocolate scent, so don’t be disappointed about it being light. The difference between the scent of hot chocolate and hot cocoa is reflected in this candle as well. It’s much less chocolate-y, less intense and more drink-like, meaning a lot more diluted or watery. The spiced part…I mean the spice is there, but it’s faint.

The throw is fine, I could smell it all over my medium sized kitchen, it’s just a light, noninvasive fragrance.

If you want a spice and chocolate scent that will really fill up a room and be intense, you’ll need to mix your own. Full on chocolate, you get from Yankee Candle Chocolate Layer Cake. For spice, I’d go with the simple Yankee Cinnamon Stick, since you need something strong enough to hold its own next to Chocolate Layer Cake. You could also go with Sugar and Spice or Kitchen Spice for a bit more complex result.

I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Spiced White Cocoa scented candle Review and I’ll talk to you soon!
