Sweet and fruity
Berry Jam is very sweet, fruity, and delicious smelling. It paired nicely with my Peeps Marshmallow Chicks candle. The combo smelled similar to Strawberry Buttercream. I found the throw on mine to be pretty light, maybe medium after several hours of burning. I would have rated it 5 stars if the throw were better and if the strength of the fragrance were stronger (I prefer strongly scented candles). I'd purchase it again, but I'd need several to burn simultaneously. Overall it's a great! Too bad YC doesn't make peanut butter scented candle to burn it with LOL

Warm and sweet
This candle is great! It is strong and sweet. The perfect, fruity scent. A great mix of raspberries, black berries, red currants, and sugar. This fragrance smells like canning season, like warm jam simmering on the stove! Reminiscent of late summer with hot days and sun ripened fruit hanging heavy on bushes, ready for the picking and eating. More than just a straight, natural berry scent, it is infused with a candy like sweetness that lingers in the air making every thing bright. The throw is mid to strong and quickly scented a medium sized room. Great not just for summer, but anytime you want a strong, sweet and fruity throw.

A little bit heavy smelling
I smelled this candle in the store and I fell in love with it, but after burning it one time I realized that I no longer liked it... It has a very strong berry smell, and now when I smell it I get a headache. I am so sad because I used to love it, but I guess the smell just gets to me. Definitely make sure you are okay with it before you buy it (;

Nothing holds a candle to Grandma's, but this one fills the air with warm berry delight you can almost taste!
Did you ever make homemade jam the classic way with your Grandma? If so, this candle is a treat for your heart as well as your senses.
I now have an electric jam maker, which, of course, I use less often than I, and my family, would like (though my waistline approves.)
Of course, nothing holds a candle to Grandma's. (See what I did there? Heh.)
Still, I submit that BERRY JAM smells just like warm, irresistible freshly-made jam!
This fragrance is one of those foodie-scents that is true-to-life and satisfying, not crave-inducing. It's a delightfully tart/sweet twist on other fruit-based fragrances that aren't "jammed". The result is a sweeter, richer, more indulgent scent that is cozy and comforting.
It's such a delicious fragrance you might even convince yourself you can taste it on the air.
BERRY JAM is an excellent rainy-day scent. It's cozy but not specific to any season; you can burn it year 'round. So I definitely recommend you keep a jar or two on hand - the candle, and the real thing, too!

I have missed this one!
I have been buying Yankee Candles for years now and this one had always been one of my favorites but I had guessed they stopped carrying them. I had it burning one time when I had my tv service installed and the installer loved it too and said she was going to have to go buy one too. So glad I could pick up a couple today!
