I liked the smell of this candle before burning. However, once I started burning it, I could not smell ANYTHING. I burned this one twice, for about 4-5 hours each time, and no scent whatsoever. Even when I stood right over the candle, I could not smell it. (I have other candles and fragrance items at home that I have no problems with smelling the scent). I switched to the 2 wick tumblers because the first few I burned I thought were stronger scented than the one wick large jars. I guess this proves my theory wrong!

Purchased online and did not smell in a store before buying. Bought this candle based solely on the description from website and was so looking forward to it. Beautiful smell from the jar but no scent throw from the lit candle. I burnt it in my average sized bedroom for 5 hours and you cannot smell it unless you put your nose right over the jar. Even with the lovely summer color and label; this candle is a dud if you want to scent a room. Very disappointed. So far, I have found that the following summer scents have a mild to strong throw: JuicyWatermelon (mild throw), Sweet Strawberry (moderate throw), Fruit Fusion (awesome strong throw!), Blueberry (mild throw) and Pineapple Paradise (mild throw).

Tropical Fruity Punch
I really had high hopes for this one. It smelled great cold. It smells like a yummy fruit punch scent but when lit you could barely smell this one. I even put this in our bedroom which isn't real big and you could barely smell it.
I finished this candle but would never purchase this again. Although the burn was excellent on it.
If you like this scent I would definitely recommend the tart in this one as the tart is nice and strong and will fill up your room!

Smells like fruit punch
This candle reminds me of the fruit punch that you might drink at a baby shower or child's birthday party- the punch with sprite and fruit mixed in it. It is a subtle throw but I can definitely smell it when I'm in the same room. If I leave the room, as soon as I open the door it is very strong. I like it!

Fruity but weak
I agree with the other reviewers on this candle. It is a nice fruity blend of sweet fragrances but over all, this candle has a weak throw and that is not something I expected. I had this lit in my dining room after cooking french fries. After 3 hours, you could still smell the grease but not the candle. It's great in a bedroom or small, confined area, but if you are lighting it for a large room, I would avoid this one because you will be disappointed.

Subtle Citrus Scent
I purchased the Luau Party scent at the Yankee Candle store because I was looking for something different than my usual scent types (stronger scent profiles). This delivers on the citrus promise, but after the first couple of uses, I got no scent from the candle. Were it just the subtly, I would recommend (did with Pineapple Cilantro), because I recognize the scent preference issue, but the loss of scent after a use or two makes the Luau Party scent a miss for me.

Love tropical scents but this was a fail
I love tropical scents and this candle is no exception. Except once you light it, there is no scent. Huge letdown. I have tried it in a few different size spaces and it has zero impact. I won't purchase again.

I was so excitied for this candle
I could not wait for this candle! I miss the old mixed fruit candle and thought this would be close. It smells like a fizzy bubbly fruit punch, tart with a punch. I was a little disappointed when I burned it, the throw was very weak. It seemed like it got stronger half way through. I think I will try this one again, I am hoping something was wrong with the one I got!
