Yankee Candle Names ‘Scent of the Year’ for 2021 and It Smells Like a Vacation

Yankee Candle says there’s a new home fragrance in town.

The candle maker and retail chain recently announced its pick for its third annual Scent of the Year. The company named its new “Discovery” candle as the fragrance that represents 2021.

Discovery has fruity and spicy notes, including guava nectar, tangelo, orange, red ginger, peach, cardamom, vanilla spice and saffron.

“Working closely with fragrance and trend experts, we found that people around the globe are craving travel and exploration now, more than ever before,” Yankee Candle Company’s VP of Marketing Anna Whitton said in a statement. “Knowing that travel may still be out of reach for many this year, the 2021 Scent of the Year, Discovery, was designed to help people fulfill the universal desire to discover new cultures, make new memories, and embrace new connections from the comforts of their own homes.”
