I love candles that smell like cookies.
It’s like baking them without the calories.
Fresh, hot sugar cookies right out of the oven with extra sprinkles.
Spicy cinnamon. Buttery crust. Hot gingerbread. Crunchy pistachio cookies with almonds and vanilla.
I wish you could smell my kitchen. It’s almost like Santa’s elves are making an eight-course meal entirely made up of cookies.
I put together a fun photo shoot for Yankee Candle that helps to illustrate the smells of their yummy new candle line called Cookie Swap. The scents are inspired by holiday cookie classics with six new fragrances that smell like a whole lot of wonderful.
The first new fragrance is called Magic Cookie Bar.
Have you ever walked in brownies when they were just about done?
That’s what this candle smells like mixed with cookie and chocolate and brown sugar and butterscotch.
Pair this scent with a cup of hot cocoa and tiny marshmallows.
The next scent is called Iced Gingerbread.
It’s the perfect blend of cookie smells. Sometimes I can smell gingerbread. Sometimes I can smell cookie. And every so often…I’ll get a whiff of vanilla.
Pair it with cinnamon coffee.
The next scent is called Candy Cane Meringue.
It’s the perfect Christmas blend. It smells like featherweight meringue flavored with vanilla and peppermint. There’s also an unexpected whiff of citrus every now and then.
Pair it with a good book and a latte.
The next scent is called Merry Berry Linzer.
I’ve never heard of a linzer cookie before.
It’s an almond shortbread filled with raspberry filling and topped with a vanilla glaze.
Pair it with a Christmas movie and a cup of hot tea.
I saved my favorite for last.
This scent is called Sprinkled Sugar Cookie.
The cookie that my grandmother used to make. If I close my eyes I’m back in her kitchen with the smell of buttery, warm cookies swirling around me.
Memories with extra sprinkles.
The best scent of all. 🙂
