Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick

"Spice up your life with the gorgeous aroma of Yankee Cinnamon Stick Wax Tarts. The true to life cinnamon scent is bright and uplifting, perfect for relaxing with friends and family."

I´m a cinnamon lover, could eat it on pretty much any dessert and even don´t shy away to put some in tomato sauces sometimes. Calvin Klein´s "Obsession", that very rich and warm cinnamon scent is one of my favourites too...So why is this review going to be so bad now?
As soon as the tart melts an extremely powerful cinnamon scent starts wafting through the room. So strong that you can nearly taste it (what I call the "Abercrombie & Fitch" effect - everyone who has been to one of their stores will know what I´m talking about). Too strong. But after roughly 30min the cinnamon explosion comes to an end and what follows is awful. It continues smelling - but of old, burned and somehow rotten wax. Baahh. Unfortunately the worst quality wax tart I have tried out so far.


  1. My father adds cinnamon, too, when he cooks Spaghetti :)

  2. Oh, wie gut, dass ich die nicht bestellt habe. :o)
