Fresh floral smell for small areas
This candle has a very exotic floral aroma which is not too "flowery". It has a very limited throw, good for a smaller area.

One of the best florals for sure.
I too get the Tulips/Stormwatch vibe from this candle but it also smells like my older retired Lotus Blossom. I think this candle is the perfect strength for a floral. You can smell the sweet scent lingering in the air it but it is not suffocating. The red wax is very rich. Normally that would not matter to me but I must comment what a beautiful candle Exotic Bloom is.
I said this is one of my favorite florals and I got to thinking about all Yankee's florals and they really are all exceptional! I think florals are what they do best!

A very subtle floral fragrance. I love this one. Not too heavy. Not too light. Just right.

One Of The Best!!!!
This candle is hands-down one of the absolute best fragrances in the current Spring/Summer lineup! This is a full-bodied watery floral fragrance that is almost a spitting image of Storm Watch. The main difference that I got from Storm Watch is that it had a lot of lilac in it whereas in Exotic Bloom I kind of get a Tulips floral vibe.
The throw on this fragrance is fantastic! I haven't been this satisfied with a fragrance in a long time and I'm very impressed. I don't mean this offensively, but if Yankee Candle retires this fragrance, they are stupid. For the past month, when I go to my local Yankee Candle store, this fragrance doesn't really have any overstock the amount of large jars available are slim compared to any other candle. This is a home run and a new personal favorite. Keep it up!

For those of you that miss storm watch this is for you. Same scent, just a better name. Exotic bloom goes better with this scent. It does remind me of an exotic night heavy in perfume. There is a slight under tone of an earthy floral which just adds to its heaviness. This scent is very strong. I wasn't a fan of storm watch nor am I am fan of heavy floral scents. If you are then you should get this. Is is just not for me. But I give it a High value because if you want a scent bang for your buck, this will do just that.

Smelled it before...
Was not thrilled when I bought this candle via the YC website hoping I would be getting a fresh new scent. It smells exactly like Tulips (which is ironically the same color wax). If you like this one, you would certainly like Tulips. I did like Tulips, it's a more powdery floral scent, but I am tired of it. Was really looking for something new. There is nothing that separates them besides a label. The throw is good, I am just very tired of the Tulips scent, and Exotic Flower is it's identical twin.

I love this scent! I saw the name of this new candle in the window and had to go in for a sniff. 2 seconds later I found myself buying this jar. 20 minutes later, at home, I found myself in love with this jar.
The fresh scent mixed with a hint of floral is just intoxicating!
