Not what I thought...
I was disappointed because I really couldn't smell the candle unless I was leaning right over it. I also think it's more floral/linen than beach-like. I love YC and highly recommend the quality, just not this particular scent.
I WISH they would bring back Ocean Water. Nothing beats it in my book.

Couldn't smell it.
My mom loves scented candles so I bought her a few votives, my first ever purchase from Yankee Candle, "Golden Sands," "Beach Walk," and "Beach Wood" because she loves the beach. I even bought three votive holders (the glass buckets were so cute and a GREAT price, I thought) to put the votives in. So anyway I lit the three votives in the kitchen. After hours and hours, I still could not smell any of them. Occasionally I'd get a whiff but even if I put my nose over the flame I could not smell them. I think that these votives are good price, just two bucks each, but they do not fill a room, even with three burning. My mom loves them but I could not smell them. Personally, I would not recommend "Beach Walk."

If you love the beach, you won't be disappointed!
I absolutely love this fragrance! Its clean and fresh smelling both wrapped and unwrapped! My favorite place to burn it is in the bathroom giving it that extra little touch. I hope that YC makes this candle for a long time to come!

Soft scent that's really nice! I'm going to get some more of these.

Not what I expected
I bought this votive to sample the fragrance before purchasing a larger version of this candle. I had originally smelled the candle in the large jar and thought this may be something I would be interested in, but after lighting the votive, I was disappointed. This scent doesn't remind me of the beach at all. My mom and I both agree that this smells like a mix of fresh linen and flowers. The musk undertone in the candle has an "old-time feel" and reminds me of my grandmother. The fragrance is not bad, and others have positively reviewed this candle, but it is not for me. It's the musk that really turns me off. I would describe the scent as "medium;" the small votive was able to scent a bedroom in about a hour.

Love it! I wrap the leftover wax in tissues use as pomander.
Love this clean, fresh scent. Got this candle as a gift and treasured every moment of it as it filled my room with that lovely fragrance. After it was done, I couldn't bear to part with the still strongly-scented wax, so I wrapped it in tissues and put it in my lingerie drawer. My underthings never smelled so great! Definitely going to get more of these candles!!!

Love the fresh clean scent of this. I bought the large jar a few years ago, then with moving it got packed away for a couple of years. When I opened the jar recently it still smelled great.

Best pick in the whole store!
This was one of the first candles I bought anywhere and now we always have it in our house. We live on the coast and this reminds me of actual walks on the beach during the summer. Slight hint of salt air combined with the smell of suntan oil - never found another that beats this one!
