Yankee Candle Halloween Wax Tarts

I've always lusted after the Halloween scents that Yankee release in The States around this time of year so you can imagine my delight when not only do they bring them to the UK but they also release them in a tart form, obviously I couldn't resist picking up a couple.
 
 
Yankee describes them as...

Witches Brew: The spicy sweet aroma of exotic patchouli casts a captivating spell!
 
Candy Corn: The familiar, sweet scent of candy corn is a fond reminder of Halloween fun and treats.
 
Unless you happen to be American (and therefor familiar with the popular US candy) the description of Candy Corn isn't really much use, to me it smells of vanilla; sugary, sweet vanilla.  Along the same lines as a lot of their previous cookie or cake scents.
 
Witches Brew is apparently patchouli but all I get is cloves, really strong, spicy cloves and I love it!  To me it's quite a linear scent but it has an excellent throw and my whole flat was still smelling lovely when I got up this morning after burning half a tart last night.  It's definitely going on my favourites list and it might even make it onto my Christmas day burns as it's beautifully warm and comforting and very much a winter scent to me.
 
Both fragrances also come in jar form which are super cute:
