One of my favorites
Beach Wood is one of my favorite Yankee scents. I prefer rustic scents of nature such as pines, balsam, bayberry and Beach Wood is in this category to me. It's the candle I burn throughout the hot humid months because it's earthy and light but I like it any time of year. I also like apple and peach for summer but with Beach Wood I never have to worry that it might be overpowering, especially in the heat. This might be why some reviewers feel it's not strong enough but I like strong scents too and this one is perfect. Beach Wood evokes a gentle ocean breeze at dusk as the fog begins to roll in minus the sunscreen or aquatic aspect that is often present in beach scents.

My new favorite, very light and fresh!
When I first saw this candle I thought how gross because I thought it would smell like wood, but then when I actually finally smelt it, it was light, fresh, gentle, and cozy. It is now my new favorite because it is not a overwhelming smell and is very versatile.

Smells great in jar, but no fragrance once lit
I was sorely disappointed when I went into my local shop yesterday to stock up on Cozy Sweater and was told it had been discontinued. I found that Beach Wood was a scent somewhat similar so I purchased 2 small jars. The scent in the jar was perfect and I loved it, and couldn't wait to get home and light them. Unfortunately after 1 hour I realized that I couldn't smell anything. Thinking it was a fluke, I lit the 2nd jar and an hour later with both being lit, still nothing. I'm very disappointed. Not only because they discontinued my new favorite Cozy Sweater, but also because I spent good money on an alternative that has no smell.

Beautiful smell-but can barely smell it!
This is such a fantastic blend of gentle notes yet I cannot smell it under I put my head over it! I liked this for my bedroom if only I could smell it more. Will be returning it :(

very weak smell ..."of what" not the beach air
very dissapointing, I was thinking of strolling past bonfires & driftwood. This has neither.

Limited Area Scent, Perfect for the Office
I love the fragrance of this candle, but I was disappointed when I burned it at home, because I could barely smell it when it was burning.
HOWEVER, it is perfect for a desk candle to burn at work. I can smell it and enjoy it (it is two feet from my elbow, next to my potted plants on the windowsill) but my office mate, who sits only ten feet away, can't smell anything more than the match I use to light it.
The fragrance is delightful -- vetiver is one of my favorite scents.

Smells good when you sniff candle, but you can't smell it!
You can't smell this candle when you burn it. It has the an extremely weak smell. It is unfortunate too, because the candle smells so good! Maybe if you put this in a small room it would work and then you will love it, but if you are putting it in a big open area, don't buy it!
