This scent is absolutely horrendous! It does *resemble* bacon a bit, but not in a good way. It literally made me gag and made me feel nauseated. Maybe somebody else could enjoy it, but not for me!

What a fun scent!
I hesitated to buy it too...It took me a couple of times smelling it in the store before I was convinced. I always liked it, but LOVE so many other scents. I finally decided to purchase it and boy am I glad! The throw is fantastic. I can smell it all over the house :) IT'S BACON!!!!

It's a novelty... give it a try!
Of course it doesn't smell like actual REAL bacon... it's a candle, duh! If the candle was made of bacon grease, then maybe it would (LOL) but seriously, it's a pretty awesome candle to buy as a gift for any bacon loving friend or loved one. Have fun with it! I hate that the reviews are so harsh on this... it caused me to delay trying it for quite a while! I'm glad I bought it finally. It's a hoot!!! I'm not disappointed it doesn't smell as though actual bacon is being fried up, common sense told me it wasn't going to when I bought it. It does however smell like yummy bacon bits. It's strong and the throw is amazing... it's just all around FUN to burn!

I loved this
This smelled just like bacon to me. Now, when I open a package of bacon, the smell reminds me of the candle.
The scent is quite strong. This is probably the strongest Yankee Candle I've had. The scent comes through the jar even when the lid is on. I keep it in a cabinet when I'm not burning it. Otherwise, I'd smell it all of the time.
It's unusual, strong, and not for the faint of heart. It's perfect for me, though.

I like it.
I had my daughter order this for me. She hated it but I love it. Smells like Hickory Smoked Bacon. I burn it all the time.

This is not bacon
I walked passed the candles at my local PX when this odd smell hit me. I turned and there was the entire end cap covered with their new display of MMM Bacon. I was intrigued at first and smelled one of the candles. It was awful. I nearly gaged. And to make sure it wasn't just me I had other people smell the candle too. We all had similar reactions.
This is not bacon. I love the smell of bacon cooking. This is more like burnt bbq trapped in a tiny space with no ventilation. I normally love Yankee Candle smells, but this is one to avoid, unfortunately.

Bacon is a stretch but a good candle overall
Smelling the candle unlit it doesn’t conjure up bacon to me, more of a smoke BBQ sauce. Not a bad scent just not bacon.
When lit we likened it as a very light smoky scent of a campfire. Definitely not overpowering but light and nice. When asked to guess the scent almost everyone comes up with campfire/fireplace/bbq/ or burning wood. Nobody ever guesses bacon.
So along with our standard order of 2 Lavender-Vanilla, (imo – the best scent ever!), we are happy we got 2 of these. We are on the 2nd one now and will place a new order soon and we will be getting more of these.

Not so much...
Bacon as a home fragrance? I get it - it's kitschy. Don't get me wrong, I love bacon, but this candle is more like the Saturday morning breakfast "I can't get rid of that smell, turn on the fan and open the windows" type fragrance.
