Our Review of the Yankee Mandarin Cranberry Candle

Products Purchased: 14.5 oz Mandarin Cranberry Jar Candle Purchased at the Home Goods Stroe

  • Scent 
    • Cold Sniff: Prominent notes of citrus and cranberry. It’s strong, juicy and delicious.
    • Lit Scent: The sweetness of the citrus that we got on the cold sniff came through nicely. We got more of the tartness from the cranberry once lit.  It was a nice, fruitty scent. More sweet than tart.
  • Scent Score – 4 out of 5 
  • Scent Throw & Strength 
    • Strength: The fragrance was strong at first, but lost a bit on subsequent burns.  On the first burn, the scent strength & throw as about a 4.  By the third burn, it had diminished to about a 3.  Still stronger than most Yankees we’ve tried over the past year.
  • Scent Throw Score – 3.5 out of 5 


  • Performance: No issues with the burn.  The candle had nice high flames and a deep wax pool in about 30 minutes.
  • Performance Score – 4 out of 5

Overall Score: 3.75 out of 5

Final Thoughts: I had high hopes for this candle and it did well overall.  It was a nice scent, but I would have liked it to be a bit stronger.  It would be a nice choice for a spring or summer candle.

“I first tried this scent about 2 years ago and ever since it is by far my favorite candle! The scent is sweet but not overwhelming and also a touch of tart. I would recommend this candle to anyone that doesn’t like really sweet candles but want a good fruit smell. This candle is also a scent that can be used any time of the year I burned it during Christmas parties as well as summer nights.” Amazon.com Review

“First off these candles are so long lasting and worth every penny. While I do enjoy the scent of this candle I was hoping for more Mandarin scent. Still a lovely scent that fills the room without being overwhelming.”YankeeCandle.com Review
