Not Strong Enough & Not the Vanilla Scents I Like
I smelled this at the store & loved how it smelled in the wrapper-couldn't wait to try it. I was really disappointed for 2 main reasons. Believe the description on this one as it reminded me of how it smells when you are making buttercream frosting from scratch-but I didn't get that much of that smell when it was wrapped-it just smelled like a creamy vanilla scent which I thought would be good in the kitchen or baths-no. First, I could not smell it unless I was right next to it & I prefer the scents you can smell when you walk in the house or come down the stairs & this one just doesn't have that throw. I have a really open style main floor, so I need products with a good throw & scent. I thought maybe it was just me, but I got the same type comments from other people when I tried the few tarts I had. I'm not one who likes the "food" smelling tarts-I like some of the florals, most of the vanilla mixed scents & the "clean" smelling ones-I thought this one, despite what I had read about it would be a good "creamy" vanilla scent due to how it smelled it the wrapper. I DID get a bunch of the votives in this scent & we are using them in our sunroom when it rains or it's cool enough to have to close the windows-then, if I light a couple you smell a light buttery, vanilla scent due to the closed room we are using them in. This is one where I say the description is pretty much right on the mark, but beware of the scent & throw not being very strong. You really have to take into account the size of the area you want this tart's scent to reach. I couldn't smell it from my family room which is open & right off the kitchen. I want to be able to smell these products when I walk in the door if one is burning or has been burning for a couple hours & this one just doesn't make it in my house at all. Oh, as far as the bathroom-we have a 1/2 bath that is small enough, but it smelled to much like a bakery when I tried it in there-it's not a "bathroom" type scent in my opinion.

I LOVE this fragrance and always have people comment when I have it 'burning'.

I want to eat it!
This tart smells just like you baked a homemade cake with buttercream frosting. It is certainly one of my faves, even better than Christmas Cookie or Vanilla Cupcake, which I also enjoy U might add. If you like the food smells, you'll love this. My only complaint is that I wish it were just a bit more stronger scented, as it seems a bit weak, but still worth the purchase for sure. Don't pass this one up!

Nice and light
This was pleasant, but not one of my faves. Name is true to the scent, just not my style.

LOVE this scent!
I buy this scent every time I order online or go to the store. Fills the whole room and lasts a long time. It's also not too sweet.

I LOVE this scent
I'm new to Yankee & boy have I caught up fast on tart Warmers, I love love Vanilla & read reviews on this, I at the time only had 1 tart warmer In my kitchen & WOW what a soft yet not too strong scent, I just bought 50 more & I'm sticking with the tarts, I don't see spending $250 for wax melts, I know how 5 Warmers & have had ZERO probs removing the wax, It's so easy, (I use a plastic spoon on the ends & POPS up so easy) I'm hooked on these year round,

Good Alone, Better To Mix!
I use to burn this one by itself, and it filled my dining room and living room well. It was subtle, and not too over powering. The lady at our local YC got us into the mixology, and layering of scents, which is really fun! Now I love pairing this one with Whoopie Pie! It also goes good with strawberry (if you don't already have strawberry buttercream!) and black cherry. So if you like subtle sweet scents flowing through your house, you'll be pleased with this one. If you like to mix and layer like I do, this one goes well with lots of different scents!
