And it’s hard to hold a candle…

Impressions: Upon opening the lid, the top note of cheap beer wafts from the jar. I also can almost swear I pick up a faint hint of Aqua Net, instantly carrying me back to late adolescence.

I light the candle, and a few minutes’ burn reveals the scent’s heart notes: Jack Daniels, vomit, and tension. Soon the base notes take over, and my home is filled with aromas of unwashed groupie and smack.

Burn quality: The burn is pretty damned bright; however, it flames out fast.

Conclusion: While I don’t understand why they wanted to evoke a Guns ‘N Roses tour bus in the first place, I have to say Yankee Candle hit it out of the park with this one.

(Or: clearly the person who names Yankee Candle scents is under 40, and now I feel all old and shit.)
