Hello, and welcome in to the latest edition of Yankee Candle Reviews here on SoBros Network. I will be your host – the Fragrance Aficionado of SoBros Network, also the EIC, Stoney Keeley. My passion for Yankee Candle began in 2006, when I strolled into the location in Providence Marketplace in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. I picked up a jar of Autumn Woods, and found it captured the essence of the season perfectly. I’ve been hooked in this…well, you could even call it ‘romantic…’ relationship with Yankee Candle ever since. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the wonderful summer fragrance, Sun and Sand.

There’s a reason this Sun and Sand shit has been at the forefront of the Yankee Candle summertime lexicon for the better part of the last hundred years. At least, I think that’s how long Sun and Sand has been around. Anyway, it is absolutely wholeheartedly one of the quintessential summer candles. To me, it’s Sun and Sand, Coconut Bay, and Midsummer’s Night. That’s the Summer Triumvirate (trademark pending) as us Yankee Candle nuts know it. But, that’s how good this candle is.

Nothing on Earth smells like the beach the way this candle does. Hell, I don’t even think the beach actually smells as good as this candle does. You can close your eyes and easily envision yourself sitting your bare cheeks in the sand, with the warmth of the sun beaming down on your chest. You can smell the salty ocean breeze. You feel as if you’re escaping to a luscious tropical climate where hard-bodied shirtless men fan you and feed you grapes. That’s what you get with Sun and Sand.

That, or sun tan lotion. There’s a lot of sun tan lotion in that candle for me.

Recommended burning: Early on in the summer, specifically from Memorial Day through the end of July. Also, be sure to give that jar a little smack on the tail end, just as you would during consensual coitus.
