what a funny title! RIVIERA ESCAPE is one of the new YANKEE CANDLE scents they came out with and also the name of the current candles collection:
OLIVE & THYME
SEA SALT & SAGE
so let me quickly describe the scents as best as I can, you may know that this is not my best skill, but anyways, lets see which candle scent is my favorite.
I absolutely love the scent of the RIVIERA ESCAPE candle, it is extremly fresh and clean. somehow this reminds me a bit of the clean cotton and midsummer night candles from previous collections. the SUMMER PEACH candle is amazingly fruity, a bit too fruity for me, but nevertheless it does not smell artificial and I can smell real peaches! OLIVE & THYME would be my go to summer evening balcony sitting time candle. mmhhm, I love it and I would say that its a very nice balance in between thyme and olives. last but not least I want to describe SEA SALT & SAGE, this scent I got not in the candle version but as a WAX MELT. you can either use an old oil lamp or find other suitable melt warmers. its very easy, all you need is a wax melt, a wax melt warmer and a normal rechaud candle.you put the wax melt in the wax melt warmer, lid the candle and wait for the wax to melt and your room to smell nice.
my favorite candle is the RIVIERA ESCAPE. I am sure that I am going to burn this next and am already looking forward to. shortly behind my favorite I would place the OLIVE & THYME candle. as I already said, this scent is more of an outdoor one and I will find a lovely place for it on my balcony. my third most favorite is the SEA SALT & SAGE wax melt and my least favorite is SUMMER PEACH.
these are the newest candles of the Riviera Escape collection and so far I have not burned any of these lovely candles as I still have two from the last collection. I am sure you will see my candles in future blogposts, as I love to use candles to decorate my blogger photos. stay tuned for more! X
