I tried really hard to like this candle! Such a shame.
Luau Party is very strong when unlit, but when lit, I can't smell anything. On my first burn, I burned it for 4 1/2 hours. When I actually put my nose above the candle, I can finally smell a very, very, and I do mean, very faint scent. I tried really hard to like this candle. I even unplugged my Loves Me, Loves Me Not plug-in and opened the window to let in some fresh air for a good hour...even when it's only low-30s outside! That's how much I tried to hope this will have a good throw. Then on my second burn, four hours later, still no no throw from Luau Party.
I don't like to return candles, but I will have to. If I'm paying $28 for a candle, I want my money's worth. It's just so disappointing. I really, really do love it on cold sniff.

Very Strong Scent in Jar, No throw to speak of
I purchased this candle in store. The scent unlit was very strong, sweet and tropical. Like a sweet drink at an island resort. But when I got home and lit the candle, it didn't smell at all! I tried everything, even changing to the bathroom (The smallest room in the apartment) but still nothing. Seriously, no smell whatsoever when lit.

Nice and fresh!
I usually do not care for too fruity smelling candles, but this winter has been pretty rough. I decided to give it a try and immediately loved it in the store when I smelled it. It's got that perfect punch to it that will leave your home smelling really great! It also had really good throw, and smelled just as good as it did cold. I would recommend this to anyone who like me, needs a nice spring scent to get out those winter blues!

Reminds me of a tropical drink!
My husband lights this candle in the kitchen so I can smell it as soon as I get home from work. Totally reminds me of a tropical drink, which is exactly what I need living here in Wisconsin on these cold winter nights. Love this candle!!

Not a strong throw..
I had this candle lit for at least 6 hours at a time for a few days in a row, and I was hoping for a stronger scent. You can't really smell it unless you're right next to it...even after it's been lit for a while. Maybe I just got a dud, but I wasn't happy with this candle.

Not what I expected.
I love the fruity scent line that Yankee Candle sells, so when I saw Luau Party's label, I couldn't wait to burn it. However, now that I have burned it, it is my least favorite of the new spring collection. I am not saying it smells bad, it is just not what I expected. I suggest smelling it at a store if at all possible before purchasing.

I bought this candle online because I thought it would smell good. The candle smells wonderful in the jar before lighting. I have had the candle lit for 8 hours and can still not smell it. I am sitting right next to it like 2 feet away and still can't smell it. My husband could not smell it when he came home. I would not recommend. I do not live by a Yankee Candle store to exchange. Also I don't want to pay shipping to send it back for another candle.

GOOD FOR SMALL ROOM
I love the smell of this candle but I burn it in my 15x20 family room (Large Jar candle) and unless your in front of it I can't really smell it. It has a wonderful light spring scent just wish it was stronger.
