Great candle for bedroom or bath.
The first time I smelt this candle was in the single bathroom located in The Jeffrey (311 East 60th St., NY, NY). While I was out enjoying a few craft beer with some good friends, I couldn't deny how unbearable good the candle in the bathroom had smelt. I loved the scent so much that I had to say something to my circle of friends when I arrived back to my table from the bathroom. To my surprise, all of my friend chimed right in about how they agreed the bathroom had smelled so nice. This was especially impressive since it was a Friday night, in the midst of the hockey game where the Rangers where playing for the Stanley Cup Final. To say the least, every bar in New York City was packed. Even so, I thought the bathroom had smelled so good that I had to go back into the bathroom once again just to get the name of the candle burning in the bathroom. Yankee Candle "Lilac Blossom" read across the small tumbler candle propped up on top of the toilet.
Since that day I chose this candle to fill my home with comfort. The clean scent fills the air to provide a feminine touch that is floral, but not overpowering. The candle burns smoothly throughout. It releases enough scent for your nose to initially notice it when you walk into a room, but not enough to the point where we want to walk out of the room because it's so overwhelming. The fragrance is very balanced and smooth, welcoming us into our space with comfort. This scent is optimal for bedrooms and baths due to the relaxing nature of lilac. In these rooms I believe this scent is appropriate all year long.

If you like lilac
you will love this candle...it's just as if you were outside near the real thing...not over powering and burns evenly..I think these candles are a bit expensive but the sales are always available. Wouldn't use any other brand.

Yankee candle though somewhat pricey gives you the best smelling and lasting candles I have ever had..I have tried many others and have been very disappointed..They are worth the cost..

gave this as a gift and recipient loves it - I have had one like it in past and I too love it because it brings back fond memories of Lilac time when I was growning up in Illinois.
