Here’s a preview of what new scents are coming from Yankee Candle in 2021. A definite tropical feel! The ‘Scent of the Year 2021’ or SotY21 as I’ve dubbed it, is shrouded in secrecy, although I’m betting on something destination inspired – maybe woody-gourmand-oriental. We’ve had floral and this year it was fresh so I think comforting will be in for 2021! EDIT * After writing this I found out a few more details about SotY21: An immersive and exotic fragrance, at it’s heart is the grounding note of warm ginger, with surrounding notes of starfruit and warm vanilla spice. The fragrance will inspire you to step into 2021 energised and ready to experience the world.
I also included details of confirmed returning favourites, details on the new Elevation scents and also some new product formats that are due out.
