The new line of candles were being placed on the shelf when I walked in at Yankee Candle yesterday. 

The scents are:
1. Bright Copper Kettles
2. Warm Woolen Mittens
3. Raindrops on Roses
4. Moon on Their Wings
5. Blue Satin Sashes
6. Crisp Apple Strudel
I picked up three of the six in large jars since they were having a buy 2 get 2 free sale going on.  copperkettlesHere they are:

Bright Copper Kettles
Yankee’s description of this scent is “Whistling warming spices aglow, including cinnamon bark, clove buds, allspice and nutmeg.”  It’s everything I love about spicy scents.  I always look forward to burning these during the winter months.  It’s a wonderful mild fragrance based on the cold throw.  However, I am worried about how strong of a throw it will have when it is lit.

Warm Woolen Mittens
Yankee’s description of this scent is “Just cleaned and warmed by the stove . . . a cozy scent with notes of lemon, apple, lily and musk.”  I wasn’t going to get this scent since I wasn’t sure what it would be like.  I’m not a huge musk fan.  I only own a few scents that musk in them in both candles and body care.  I was pleasantly surprised with the beauty of this fragrance.  I haven’t burned it yet, but it’s like a winter time Soft Blanket, in my opinion.  Floral, fresh, snuggly and sweet all things I would want my hands embraced with while fighting the harsh cold.

Crisp Apple Strudel
Yankee’s description of this scent is “An Austrian favorite . . . golden and sugared on the outside, tart apples and brown sugar on the inside.”  I am super happy with this scent!  The best way I can describe it is Apple Pie and God Bless America had a baby.  It’s what I love about GBA, sweet apple-ly goodness.  Apple Pie has the great bakery crust and both have hints of cinnamon.  Love love love this!  I did start burning it (as soon as I got home from the store and made the YouTube video).  The cold throw is very inviting.  As I burn it, it was a little weak but has picked up now that I have let it reach a full wax pool and taken off the My Favorite Things illumalid. 

I will be grabbing the other scents the next visit to YC.  I want to get some more of these scents as well.  I have a feeling I’ll be burning these all thru November!
