Yankee Candle Zesty Orange Spice Garland review Christmas Holiday 2017 collection

I hauled the holiday 2017 scented candles in late Fall with intention of burning them during the holiday season and Yankee Candle Zesty Orange Spice Garland was a candle I actually burned in November. It just smells very autumnal to me, nothing about this candle was either wintery or Christmas-y.

Yankee Candle Zesty Orange Spice Garland smells like dried orange peel, clove, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall it has a dry vibe, while maintaining the fruity base. It smells like potpourri with a ginger overload. The orange is actually overshadowed by the ginger, but you can definitely smell all the spices and the citrus.
I don’t much care for the dry, potpourri feeling of this fragrance, I prefer my scents more vibrant and it’s odd that a ginger heavy scent still manages to have that dry twist.

I don’t think it’s a bad scent, I just don’t think it fits either the name or the season it came out for. I’d like an evergreen note in here to begin with and I’d really like a black tea note as well, I think it would work so well with the orange and the ginger and it would be a nice variation to the mulled spice category of scents we have going on now.

I went to town with this and layered it with Christmas Garland and White Tea and I really enjoyed the mixture. I’d definitely recommend playing around with this, it’s not an amazing scent alone but layers really well.

I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Zesty Orange Spice Garland review.
