These do not smell as strong as years past.
These new candles do not smell as strong as years past. I purchased new ones ths year and I can hardly smell them. Same for the apple tarts. I had some frozen from last year and they scented my 7 room house, the new one did not even scent the 12 X12 room it was burning in. Returned it all. So sad, it was my favorite.

This candle smells so good when burning!
I've always loved Yankee candles. I grew up in Mass. so have been to the BIG store. I usually buy candles all year and Yankee is the only candles I buy. I love the macintosh scent as well as about a dozen others.

Macintosh is always a welcome scent in my home
I love my Yankee candles! Macintosh is one of my favorites especially in the fall. I love to combine this with the Pumpkin. It burns well and lasts a long time.

Fragrances are now too weak
I agree with so many others. Have been buying Yankee candles for years and years and truly enjoyed them. The fragrance problem has occurred with the wax change. This fragrance has always been my go-to fragrance. Few months back I had to exchange a candle (twice !) so I decided just to go with my old favorite - first one I bought with the new wax and nothing. Disappointing. Every candle I've bought made with the new wax has shown a noticeable decline in fragrance. I knew how they used to smell before and I notice the lack now. I'm now so tired of returning or exchanging their candles that I've stopped buying them. Why mess with a good thing?

Little good, little bad
I love the smell of this candle, and I really do believe that the old wax made the throw perfection and the candle luscious. However, the new wax which is soy based as opposed to the parrafin wax is not NEARLY as good. I understand that soy is a cleaner burn...but the scent is not nearly as strong. And, I have noticed lately the candles lose their scent about half way through. It disappoints me. If I am going to spend 30$ on a candle then please have it be good!!

I have the large tumbler with the old marbled wax, and it's fantastic! It has a nice sweet smell to it, but not over the top. Great job on this scent! I wish Yankee would go back to the original wax in the tumblers. The smooth wax just doesn't burn and smell the same!

The best fall fragrance
For 10 years, when the summer warmth turns to the fall crispness, this has been my "go to" candle. MacIntosh smells like fresh apples in the autumn sun. It is just not the fall without it. Please do not ever discontinue this fragrance.

Wonderful Fall Scent
I've been buying this scent for years! Wonderful fall aroma of fresh apples. Not overwhelming at all but a nice crisp scent.
