Home For The Holidays®
Home for the Holidays
This candle truly reminds me of my childhood at Christmas. The smell triggers memories of happier times when my brother was still alive. He was diagnosed with a serious type of cancer when I was in 6th grade and he was in 9th. Through our childhood, my parents always made Christmas very special. Each Christmas morning, the entire house had this warm, magical scent that is exactly like this candle. To this day, when I light the Home for the Holidays candle, it takes me back to the most amazing memories. It is a beautiful thing and this candle makes me so happy. It has a wonderful spiced smell that everyone in my home loves.

Beautiful candle with great scent but....
I love the look and smell of this candle, but takes a long burning time to really smell it. It does smell like christmas, but you can get away with burning it all winter. It smell great when paired with the 'mistletoe" candle. the mistletoe candle by the way, smells super christmasy! That one has an excellent throw/strength.

Nice Scent, But...
Overall, this is a good candle. I ordered this candle online because it sounded like a good candle to burn for Christmas. When I got it, it barely had any smell in the jar, but I hoped it would when I burned it. It took a good hour or two for me to actually begin to smell it. It does have a good scent, something that you think you would smell if you were to walk into Santa's house. For me, however, I would prefer the scent to be a bit stronger, but I would buy this candle again.

This candle has a terrific scent. Don't let the name "Holiday" fool you that it could only be used around the holiday season.

The Quintessential Christmas / Holiday candle
I searched for so long trying to find 'The Scent' that would sum up Holiday Memories for me. "Home for the Holidays" is just what I was looking for. It has the right blend of spices that once I light it, I start to feel better :). Every other candle I tried before had either too much apple or cinnamon in it, neither of which I enjoy very much of. I've given this as a gift, and my friends like it too. I agree with the other review - it does sell out quickly... so grab it while you can !

Thru the woods to Grandmother's house.
This smells like Christmas at Grandma's house. I was taken aback at first because the initial scent I got was very similar to those little decorative soaps our Grandmother's use in the bathroom... you know, those ones that are "just for looks" and are not actually meant to be used. But then over that scent flows a soft note of balsm pine, cloves and just a touch of cinnamon.
The throw is decent though it is not an obvious scent, and does well on it's own but does get a little lost when burned around stronger fragrances.
It is truly a unique scent. Not your typical Christmas candle, but one that will surely bring back fond childhood Holiday memories.

Too much clove for me
I loved the description of this candle scent, as it had all of the scents that I like in it. However, when this is burning, the overwhelming scent of clove overpowers the other scents. I love clove, but this is too much. I'll stick with Holiday Home Sweet Home, which is discontinued, or Kitchen Spice. On a postive note, it burns very well and has a good throw. I also love the label as it reminds me of Christmas when my children were little. I recommended it for the throw and if you truly love clove.

Best Holiday or Anytime Candle
Of all the Yankee Candle scents this is by far my favorite...every Christmas family & friends look forward to my little gift baskets that always includes a "Home for the Holidays" candle (the small jar). My only complaint is that it is not always available, too many "sold outs" or at times not even listed as a scent. If you haven't tried this & it's available be sure to....you won't be disappointed
