Yankee Candle Sunflower is in Yankee stores right now as a 2019 Treasure or rather a Yankee Candle Special Appearance candle which means it’s only available in a large jar. I’m all out of large jar scented candles and I felt like splurging so I bought a couple of the special appearance candles and I’ve been burning Sunflower for a couple of days now.
The official notes in Yankee Candle Sunflower are: sunshine and wistful floral notes.
Ugh the description…just no. Give me actual scent notes Yankee! Anyway, burning Sunflower, it’s a full on floral with a perfumey feeling. It’s very similar to the Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers perfume. Note wise I get a lot of fresh lily of the valley, some rose, and a tiny bit of jasmine underlined by a fruity mandarin note. It’s an awesome a complex floral fragrance, perfect for summer or autumn burnings.
Now I don’t usually comment on how the candles look because I mostly burn them in various candle holders as I find that they help with quicker and more even wax pooling and better scent throws but Sunflower is one of the prettiest Yankee Candles I’ve burned. Love the wax color and the label.

I’ve burned Yankee Sunflower in a large jar in my hurricane holder and it burned with no issues. The scent throw was about 6. I burned it in my living room and got a nice wax pool after about three hours and the room got filled with scent after an hour or so. I’d buy this again if I could find it at my local Yankee store.
I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Sunflower scented candle Review and I’ll talk to you soon!
