Sitting on a balcony overlooking the ocean, cocktail in hand and the scent of summer in the air, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re part of a movie. The beginning of dusk on a warm summer’s day is the most romantic and comforting, away from the glare of the sweltering sun. I love the invigorating and welcoming scents of exotic holidays that capture my heart and leave me wanting more; with Yankee Candle’s new ‘Indian Summer’ collection they bring those scents to your home, so you don’t even have to leave to feel like you’re experiencing a little holiday of your own. The four new scents include Wild Fig, Amber Moon, Ginger Dusk and Honey Glow, which combined bring about a beautiful aroma associated with the warm nights at the end of summer – just as the leaves are about to turn and the days become shorter.
Ginger Dusk is described as “the energy of sharp, bracing spice and a hint of sweet citrus.” This incredibly warming fragrance is both comforting and invigorating. Unlike spicy, festive scents, Ginger Dusk provides a subtle warm aroma that’s perfect for when the sun is setting. It reminds me of spice markets and overlooking the desert. (Not that I have occasion to do that regularly!) Honey Glow is a soft, captivating fragrance: “this sweet perfume creates an invitingly warm, peaceful mood.” You may expect this to be sickly sweet, but Yankee Candle have captured the slightly bitter scent of freshly harvested honey which is incredibly moreish. It creates an uplifting aroma that’s perfectly suited to late summer BBQs on the beach, or simple drinks on your balcony.
Wild Fig is a luxurious indulgence that contains the “lusciously rich, fruity aroma of wild figs carefully picked at the peak of perfection.” A complete contrast to the other two, this rich fragrance is incredibly fruity while still providing a darker and more sophisticated scent than you may expect. It’s the perfect bridge between seasons and creates a stronger fragrance that can definitely be enjoyed for hours. Amber Moon is described as “the enchanting allure of warm golden amber in the evening breeze, with the added intrigue of patchouli and sandalwood.” It’s a much woodier and muskier scent that provides universal appeal, taking you right through to the colder months with ease.
Collectively the four fragrances offer something unique, unexpected and delicious. I’m already a huge fan of Yankee Candle, but these new scents provide an amazing collection of aromas that will no doubt become as popular as their current collection. My favourite has to be the warming Ginger Dusk, but Honey Glow also provides an incredible atmosphere that’s perfect for late night glasses of champagne during the inevitable onset of the Indian Summer.
