Salted Caramel Scented Candle
perfect for a winter's day!
Finally finished my Christmas candles and I'm not quite ready for the spring fragrances yet, so I lit Salted Caramel this week. This candle smells slightly sweet, rich, gooey - if gooey was an aroma! - with a mild toasted finish. It has great throw and burns quickly and evenly to create a lovely amber pool. I can't believe I'm secretly wishing for a snowstorm, but this candle is like comfort food for your nose. Just curl up with a book and a blanket and enjoy!

Sweet Salty and great throw...AMAZING!
I love YC..I buy all scents however I do admit I have a thing for the sweeter scents..this one is amazing! Just received it today and couldn't wait to light it. It is just as expected. I have a huge great room and can smell it everywhere! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I ordered 12 candles in all and was crushed when 2 were broken..( shipping)also some items were left out of order. I called CS and they reordered the 2 broken candles and the items that were missing...CHEERS! for CS! No worries no problems! I love this company...they really do stand behind their products!

Sweet and creamy with a great throw!
This candle met my expectations. On cold sniff I was not sure what I thought because it had a bit of a bitter or burned note.
Once burned it smells amazing.
My husband loves this candle and thinks it smells like maple syrup and pancakes. The scent has staying power, without being overwhelming. I plan to add another to my collection.
Way to go YC, you hit it out of the park with this scent.

Perfect comforting food scent!
I was hesitant to try this one thinking the caramel aspect would make it too sweet smelling. Did it ever surprise me! This has a very deep aroma. To me, it is very similar to Caramel Pecan Pie (which is awesome too!), just not quite as sweet. Very comforting scent, especially around Fall, but definately suitable year round. One of my few fav food scents....PLEASE keep it around YC! As for the throw, it fills up a medium sized room quickly. Very noticeable without overpowering. However, for those of us that either have an open floorplan, and/or like very strong candles, I would pick up two.

I'd buy again
I really liked this scent. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was that Yankee's prices are so darn high, and there are at least two other candle companies that have similar scents that are just as strong or stronger for a lot less money. I'd buy this one again, though, on a good sale.

I just got this candle a couple of days ago and it smells delicious. Although, I do like my food candles to smell a bit sweeter, the scent of this was rich and warm, even without all the sweetness. I bought two of them during the buy one get one at 50%. My 15 year old claimed the second one for his bedroom because he liked it so much.

Perfection in a jar!
Normally, I am not a fan of sweet food candles but found 2 outstanding exceptions that changed my mind. I heard very good things about this candle and decided to give it a try and I was not disappointed. It's the perfect fall/winter scent to make any home smell warm, cozy and inviting. Something about it reminds of scents you might smell at an amusement park or carnival, but my preference for this scent is now. It's not sweet in a cloying way, but in a way I would describe as more in comforting.
To maximize even burn quality, I use an Illuma Lid every time unless I'm using a shade accessory. The burn quality is excellent and it smells the same way burning as it does when you smell it cold in the jar. I think the heat from the flame makes it even better. I used 2 for my desired fragrance needs and both were excellent. The throw on this candle is so strong that I could still smell it the following morning - it's very impressive when a candle has that much staying power in my opinion.
The other food candle that was an A+ winner, but it's too late to leave an official review for was Sweet Potato Pie. I can't thank YC enough for it! and had to acknowledge their scent design team for it! I wasn't aware of the initial release, but I hunted for what was left of this outstanding scent after the New Year in stores in 2 states, and got lucky! Yes. It's that wonderful! The best part of all - It smells just like my mother's pie and was designed with all the key ingredients, and you can smell them all so distinctly. I just love it and it will fragrance my home throughout the year!
I will be surprising my sister with this in a couple of weeks and cannot wait to see her reaction. I'm not a pumpkin pie fan, so I sincerely hope YC will make this a seasonal candle every holiday since it appears other customers loved it just as much me. But since there is no way of knowing what the future holds in the world of candle scents, and it did have "collectors edition" I took my cue, stocked up, and decided to collect a massive stash just incase it never returns. Let's just say I have enough large Sweet Potato Pie jars on hand to enjoy this for a good long while, and can burn as often as I like without reservation. I still hope it returns nevertheless because I would honestly buy more...
I wish YC would consider creating Banana Pudding (the baked version) with nilla wafers and meringue…perhaps next fall.

My mother in-law got me the Salted Caramel candle for Christmas because I love Yankee Candles and she loves the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Dunkin Donuts! And I love it!
