Great for summer
I'm not sure why Exotic Bloom came out for spring because to me it is definitely a summer type fragrance, as it's a bit "heavy" . Despite YC labelling it as "Fresh" it is predominantly floral. It kind of has the freshness of Storm Watch under the forward notes of flowers and lush greenery. It's pretty hard to describe actually. The color of the wax as well as the label suit the scent perfectly. It brings to mind a summer day with a warm breeze carrying the scent of tropical flowers with it.
The throw is good and strong, which I love, so beware if you like softer scents. I found it didn't last quite as long as I would have liked, only about 5 hrs. If you have a stash of Greenhouse buried somewhere dig it out. It makes a great complimentary fragrance to burn in an adjoining room. All in all it's a winner for a floral lover.

Standard floral scent
I am not a huge floral scent fan, but wanted to try this anyways. I always burn three like tarts at a time (in three different rooms)... and this particular scent wasn't overbearing in my opinion, even with mutiples burning. I like scents to hit me in the face... and this one was just okay. The smell wasn't bad, just not my thing.

Made me sick to my stomach
I was trying to branch out from the collections of Christmas Cookie, cupcake, etc... Was looking for something maybe fruity and out of everything I hate this scent. This is way too powerful, overbearing and just made me completely nauseous.

Floral and fresh
I just tried this tart and I think it is stronger than the large jar. The tart produced more scent and had a larger throw so I was able to detect more fragrance notes. There was a light mixed floral scent with a green note. Like how fresh aloe would smell. It is a fresh scent with powdery notes, similar to perfumed hand lotion. This tart, in a nut shell, smells like a combination of Garden Hideaway (mixed floral and green notes), Storm Watch (fresh notes), and Baby Powder (soft powder notes). There are no fruity or sweet scents in this blend. Smells very authentic. Like you went outside at night and a breeze carried the scent of a floral garden from far away to you.

I buy all the new fragrances every spring.
I bought all the new fragrances for the upcoming spring.
I have tried them all. This Exotic Bloom had to be the
absolute worst. It had a lot of smell. That was its first problem.
Everyone in my household reacted the same. It was so strong
that everybody had a headache from it. I usually like the new scents but this year there is nothing that stands out for me.
I am TRULY SAD that they are phasing out Loves Me Loves Me Not because that is a true spring and summer scent. My favorite.

Floral-y but not over powering. Clean and tropical smelling. I bought one to try, and ordered more soon after. Really like this one.
