Very pleasant smell.
This candle has a pleasant smell that gives the room a fresh aroma. Not overpowering. Highly recommend.

WHAT MAKES THIS FRESH SEDUCTIVE SCENT!!!
I bought 2 of these large jars when they first came out. It was a good deal the buy 2 get 2 free. Well, as always I picked out a nice marbled dark rich oily jar. I put it in my collection as it was cold out back in February but now it's time for me to pull out another great scent and on cold sniff this is wonderful! I lit it finally even with the air conditioning going or the windows open, this scent is luscious! I love the fact it is a 2 in 1 fresh/floral scent. It's tropical but fresh, and it pairs with so many fragrances for those that like to burn 2 jars who have open floor plans such as myself. Within I'd say 10-15 minutes I could start to smell it. The longer it burned, the better it gets. I love, love, the rich deep red color of the wax but most importantly the scent throw is surprisingly fabulous. As Midsummer's Night is my favorite "fresh" scent, this is growing on me more and more but they are both incredible scents. Exotic Bloom smells wonderful with Fluffy Towels as FT has wonderful notes of apple, lavender, and citrus notes that pair with the notes I'm listing here for Exotic Bloom as some of us, like myself, like to know all the fragrance notes in our favorite scents so we know what we like and what to pair them with, this is the listing of ALL the fragrance notes that everyone who is wondering or not sure whether they would like to order online if they cannot get to a local store, this is the list that Yankee sent to me directly:
Top: Lemon, mandarin, lavender, and basil
Middle: White orchid, neroli, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and violet
Bottom: Mossy notes, musk, and sandalwood
These fragrance notes are what is making this scent smell so fabulous, fresh, seductive, intoxicating for those who cannot do straight florals, I'd be sure to try this one at least in a tart or small tumbler. Guaranteed, you will love it! The store clerk is great, she knows me well, and said if you want a scent with a good throw and a scent that travels throughout the rooms, this is the one! Great job on this scent. Great for Spring, Summer, and rainy days! Oh, and cleaning days as well!

Exotic Bloom - surprise! It's a "fresh" scent
This has got to be one of the most surprising YC candles ever. Everything, from the gorgeous color to the name to the picture on the jar just screams 'floral'. But while there is definitely a general floral note present, the overall impression I get is warm and fresh. Nothing soapy, vanilla or sweet...just very pleasing.

Very Enticing Scent...
The scent is indescribable, its one of those you have to smell for yourself. Its floral, perfume-ish but has a fresh or water note to it as well. I personally thought this was not for me, as I do not like floral scents much, but I do like fresh scents. Boy, was I wrong I loved it at first sniff and now after lighting I am loving it much more. It has a good burn and a strong throw.

This candle has such refreshing water and floral notes. The uniqueness of the scent creates such a calming effect. Its nice to see a candle in the "Fresh" category that is a lush red.

nothing exotic here
The name and label evoke a bit of mystery and beauty. This scent is a very very light light version of a bit of rainforest and storm watch but it is so dilute that I have given up on getting any throw. I have burned this in my bedroom with my shade and thought perhaps the shade was interfering with the throw so removed it but to no avail in the scent department. Moved it to my small bath with door closed and same thing. A shame because it is a pretty candle with a gorgeous color wax pool but it is too muted of a scent to be able to enjoy any kind of throw. I gave up with 1/3 of the jar left and have it on my warmer plate and even with the wax all melted, it is barely noticeable.

When I first saw this candle I was very excited about the name and color. when thinking of exotic blooms I felt it was going to be a refreshing spring time scent. However, I was very disappointed in the throw and the performance. it is a very nice décor piece with that deep red color.
This candle also tunneled very badly for me, even with the illumalid.
