First, let me just express my absolute love for bacon--I adore this stuff, so I was looking very forward to receiving the 2 "Mmm, Bacon!" candles I ordered. Almost immediately upon opening the box, the smell made me a bit nauseated. I decided to give one a try by lighting it up, but it made my home smell like the Beggin' Strips I give to my pups.
These candles would make a great novelty gift, but I wouldn't recommend them for anything else. Thankfully, Yankee Candle allows its customers to exchange them for a scent they love, so we'll be doing just that!

Who doesn't love Bacon?
I debated on this candle for several months before I bought it. When I did buy it, I couldn't wait until Saturday morning when we were going to have a country breakfast, which naturally included bacon. I really liked the fragrance from the candle. It smells even better than taking a sniff of the candle.
So we have a new tradition, we burn our MMM Bacon candle every time we have bacon for breakfast.

Buy the Big Bacon candle instead of the small one.
We made a mistake by buying the smaller bacon candle and the scent is just not strong enough. We will buy the larger candle next time. Love the bacon scent. MMmm. The only way this product could be better is if they would add a hint of maple to the scent...bacon + maple...good times... maple waffles and bacon. mmmm.

Try it before you order it!
It's really impossible to say whether this is a good scent or not. Personally, I don't care much for it and it doesn't have the scent of bacon in my pan in the morning, but many people really disagree. If you are considering buying this, I HIGHLY recommend that you go smell for yourself. It's interesting and I definitely give YC props for making such a unique scent.

This scent is absolutely horrendous! It does *resemble* bacon a bit, but not in a good way. It literally made me gag and made me feel nauseated. Maybe somebody else could enjoy it, but not for me!

What a fun scent!
I hesitated to buy it too...It took me a couple of times smelling it in the store before I was convinced. I always liked it, but LOVE so many other scents. I finally decided to purchase it and boy am I glad! The throw is fantastic. I can smell it all over the house :) IT'S BACON!!!!

It's a novelty... give it a try!
Of course it doesn't smell like actual REAL bacon... it's a candle, duh! If the candle was made of bacon grease, then maybe it would (LOL) but seriously, it's a pretty awesome candle to buy as a gift for any bacon loving friend or loved one. Have fun with it! I hate that the reviews are so harsh on this... it caused me to delay trying it for quite a while! I'm glad I bought it finally. It's a hoot!!! I'm not disappointed it doesn't smell as though actual bacon is being fried up, common sense told me it wasn't going to when I bought it. It does however smell like yummy bacon bits. It's strong and the throw is amazing... it's just all around FUN to burn!

I loved this
This smelled just like bacon to me. Now, when I open a package of bacon, the smell reminds me of the candle.
The scent is quite strong. This is probably the strongest Yankee Candle I've had. The scent comes through the jar even when the lid is on. I keep it in a cabinet when I'm not burning it. Otherwise, I'd smell it all of the time.
It's unusual, strong, and not for the faint of heart. It's perfect for me, though.
