I have always loved the fragrance of cedar! My absolute favorite fragrance by YC is balsam and cedar, which is not cedar enough for me. To discover this candle in a closeout, it became a must buy!! The fragrance is strong enough without overpowering. I wish I had bought more than I did, or I wish they would bring it back, just by itself in their regular line.

Good throw, Good burn
The quality of this candle is excellent. Many of the Yankee Candles I've purchased during the past couple of years have had poor throw and/or poor burn. Not this one! The Country Kitchen Cedar large tumbler has a great throw - it will easily scent a medium sized room within an hour, perhaps sooner. The burn is also very good. There's a full wax pool in about an hour, it burns cleanly and is low maintenance. The wicks are thin and start to "mushroom" in approx. 3 hours but they maintain an excellent burn so I can deal with the mushrooming. (I extinguish the candle, let it cool, trim the wicks and re-light). The only negative about this candle is the fragrance-but it's my personal taste so please don't let it deter you. I expected it to smell similar to Mountain Lodge but it's very different. It's hard to describe; the closest I can come is to say it has a slight earthy/woodsy undertone with strong frosty top notes. I don't dislike it; it's just not the woodsy scent that I expected. If you're considering this candle - go for it! I don't think you'll be disappointed.
