This scent is my most favorite scent. I buy it all the time when it begins to burn low. It's one I keep around all of the time. Smells very good and burns well.

The Smell is Great but...
I love the scent of this candle but again, my kitchen is very open and large. This candle has a hard time scenting the whole area. I think it is just a light scented candle and that coupled with my large open kitchen, it struggles to scent the entire area with a strong fragrance. I would like it if it would a little stronger.... I would recommend it if you like light scents or have a smaller room or area.

Scent not as strong recently
I have been a big fan of Yankee Candles for 20 years, in particular the Mandarin Cranberry scent, but in the past year I've noticed that the scent is not as strong as it used to be. I'm not sure if the company has reduced the amount of fragrance included in the wax, but it does seem that way. It's still fragrant but not nearly as fragrant as it used to be. The reason why I was willing to pay the price for these candles in the past was because they were so highly scented that I didn't even have to light them to enjoy the Mandarin Cranberry fragrance. I wish the company would either reduce their prices or return the scent to the level that it used to be.

Sweet almost tart red berry smell.
You barely notice the floral notes though they do a good job of bringing out the mandarin and cranberry. It's sweet, has an excellent throw and reminds me of cherry Kool-Aid.

Nice scent, but does not fill room
While I really enjoy the scent, I'm very disappointed that the fragrance does not permeate through out our large kitchen and living room area. A number of my spring/summer candles are like this, including Mandarin Cranberry and Paradise Spice. I even have the accessories to trim the wick and keep a even burn. Just not worth the price of these expensive candles.

First burn had a mild scent, but I cannot smell anything on subsequent burns. I did notice a pleasant scent in the immediate area while the top is off and the candle is unlit, but I expected more fragrance while burning.

I was so disappointed by this candle! I've purchased many tarts in this scent and they have been VERY strong. However, the large jar had ZERO scent throw. I tried burning it twice in two different rooms, each time letting it create a full wax pool, but it was scentless. I will be returning this candle and although I love Yankee, I DO NOT recommend it.

Lovely scent for the holidays
I was delighted to find that this candle was the same as the Illuminations' "Cranberry Orange," which was a longtime family favorite during the holidays. What a find!
