Too much for me
The scent itself is not bad, just too heavy and strong for my taste, especially in a small room. It does smell rich and luxurious, I just prefer fresher airier scents.

Golden Sands is a great fragrance. I feel bad that I waited this long to try it. I've been missing out on all those times when I could have used this to brighten my day. Golden Sands is a tough scent to describe. Warmth is the first word that comes to mind. It is definitely a warm scent. The sandalwood is probably the strongest scent and makes this aroma relaxing and soothing. Tonka beans have a vanilla like scent to them, except they have spicy, fruity, and sweet notes to them. So think vanilla with notes of cinnamon and honey. And last the scent I can smell is the orange flower which gives this enveloping warm scent a light, fresh floral quality which is perfect. It really is a perfect combination. I have had the tart going all day and it is still strong.

Very light scent that doesn't smell sweet. Just clean.

Beautiful scent !!!!!!
I really love golden sands it is mine and my daughters favorite Yankee candle sent ! It is hard for me to say that because I love a lot of different scents from Yankee candle ! I stopped buying anything else because no other candle company I have tried can compare to the quality! I have golden sands in my car and home it is a beautiful clean sent ! I am a tough critic when it comes to scents because I have suffered from migraines most of my life. I have never had any issues with Yankee . It really is true to life scents they smell exactly how you would imagine them to . I always tell people I know to use Yankee! It is the Best!!!

The description is perfect! It's a great way to bring summer into the room (in this case, the bathroom) during these cold winter days! I couldn't disagree more with those saying this is a light, short lasting scent. It's been burning (only half of the tart) for over 10 hours, and when I walked in the house, I noticed the awesome smell immediately!!

The scent does not last!
My husband brought this scent for me. I am in love with the scent but when the wax is on the burner, the smell is their for a few then its not. Why the scent dies?

This scent combo is a winner!
I'm so glad I finally tried this scent. I've been eyeing it for quite some time but always purchased something else because the cold scent smelled amazing but too light. I can't speak for the candle, but the tart version was very fragrant! It filled up my open concept living/dining area with an intoxicating sun soaked aroma. It's not surprising I like this tart as I love citrus, sandalwood and vanilla scents and what could be better than all 3 together? If you have the winter doldrums, take a chance on Golden Sands, I'm happy I did!
