Well another year has come to an end. As I'm taking my holiday decorations down I realized I might want to make note of the fragrances that I totally loved in 2011. I know my blog hasn't even been online for a year but I thought it needed to be done. Some of the scents are scents that come out every year. If it's one of my must haves for a season I will mark it with a <3.

Ah spring..time for me to retire my winter scents and get ready for florals and fruits.
lemon
Meyer Lemon is a light creamy yellow color with a classic picture of a bunch of lemons with one cut in half.

Yankee Candle describes this scent as " perfectly ripe, with a naturally sweet and refreshing scent."

It's a lemon scent that is creamy and lightly sweet. It's not too tart or too lemony where it's going to overwhelm its user. Doesn't remind me of cleaning supplies which I know is why some are turned off by lemon scents.

IMO:
I was so happy to see a lemon scent in the spring line up!! I personally love love love lemon scents and this is one of my favorite so far!! It has a nice medium throw that warms up the room with citrus creaminess. I am going to get a bunch of tumblers and tarts in this scent!! This makes a great everyday choice.

I love it!! I hope that it will keep my jars from tunneling. I am so sick of wasting foil trying to fix my candles. I hope this will keep the heat in and around the glass and keep it out of the way of drafts since it's pretty tall. We'll see. I never thought these would go on sale either. Originally $49.99 down to $12!! Worth a shot IMO.

bflowersThis is one of the new scents for the Spring from Yankee Candle. It's a light pink/purple color and the cold throw smells strong and kind of sweet! I melted it today, even though it's not springtime and I'm still enjoying winter fragrances.
Yankee Candle's website says "the lovely scent of tuberose, lily, and hyacinth blossoms balanced with soft watery notes".

I this it's soft enough for a bedroom or bathroom yet has a strong enough throw for a family room. It's definitely a scent for the spring time, especially since I live near the beach. Nice and fresh even if it's not In that category.

IMO:
I think this a great scent for even those of you that don't particularly care for floral to try. I don't care for floral but this is a keeper to me. I will more than likely put this in the guest room once spring comes around.

SAS lootI went out and about yesterday to Yankee Candle and Bath & Body Works (oh and Marshall’s too).  It was a crazy mad house in BBW but I got some good deals (even though the flyer said the SAS was on the 27th most of it was already marked down).  I went to the bigger of the two stores since I go to the smaller one all the time I thought it would be best with all the people trying to partake in the SAS.  It was a smart move.  Anyways, here’s the loot!

tpwallTwisted Peppermint=\= I am glad I grabbed these!  Since they didn’t sell the body care for very long, I figured this would be good to have in the house for the remainder of winter.

 

 



mfwallMarshmallow Fireside=\= Love this scent!!  I bought two boxes, if I like it I will get some more.  I haven’t tried it in the wallflower form yet.  I wish they had the candle since I really enjoyed this…just enough sweet and smoky, truly a marshmallow fireside scent.  I think Slatkin’s fireside is the most authentic one out there.

 

scwallCinnamon Stick=\= It smells like the name.  I use this in my kitchen in one of the duo holders.  Usually one Cinnamon Stick and one Cinnamon and Clove Buds.

 

 

 

 

ccbwallCinnamon and Clove Buds=\= I love my kitchen to smell like I baked! LOL!!  I think since cinnamon is used in just about everything I make (sweet wise) it’s a nice way to have those scents linger.  Even though Lemon is my number one, during holidays cinnamon rules the kitchen.

 

 

swlotionSecret Wonderland=\= My best friend gave Secret Wonderland to me last year for a Christmas gift and I fell in love.  Before that I was strictly a Country Apple/Sweet Pea kind of girl.  Obviously my tastes have change a little.  These were $3 each. Wow!

 

 

dklotionDark Kiss=\= I wasn’t sure about Dark Kiss at first.  I had heard of this from Ellie – Pepper19882007 and thought I would give it a try.  I have to say I get a lot of compliments while wearing this fragrance.  Amazing!

 

 

cllotionCharmed Life=\= Can’t beat 75% off!  I bought these for like $2.62!  It’s just an okay fragrance but for so cheap why not keep it around in the guest bath or take the lotion and spray to work if I need to….the possibilities are endless!

 

 

mfcandleMarshmallow Fireside=\= Buy a 1.6oz candle and get a glass hurricane with it for $2!  Love getting things for free. 

 

 

 

 

twsp

Twisted Peppermint=\= Scentportables are a great way to freshen up your car!  I love these vs. Yankee’s car jars and I haven’t had any problems with leaking disks or anything.  I know I have heard YC’s leaking and ruining the interior of cars.  Yum in one of my favorite scent!

 

 

ccb candleCinnamon and Clove Buds=\= You can’t beat 50% off the candles.  I think Slatkin’s give off a great throw!  This is great during my baking for the holidays.

 

 

 

spice candleSpice=\= This kind of reminds me of the one above, but its got a holiday spice hint to it.  Kind of red hots meets clove buds.  So nice!

 

 

 

 

vanilla bean noel soapVanilla Bean Noel =\= I love this in a hand soap.  I think it’s a great soap for work, where you aren’t sure what others like. 

 

 

 

I will have the other part, Yankee Candle, soon.
