For starters, I'm a bacon fanatic. I also have Que cologne because it smells like a barbecue, so my sense of scent is a bit more out there than for most people. This smells like bacon that's done cooking, but before it's burnt, and it drives my family nuts when I've burning the candle, but they've learned to look to see if I'm actually cooking or not.

A different sort of Bacon
To be fair, my husband loves this candle. I bought it for him, so that he would put it in his "man cave". The smell of the candle is not the "yummy cooking breakfast in the morning smell", but more of greasy thick bacon slabs that have sat out till afternoon. I like the idea of the Man Candles, but this was a miss..

Smell is extremely foul, DO NOT BUY
I love bacon. In everything. I love Yankee Candles, almost all of them. When I saw Bacon as a new sent, I thought it would be heaven on earth. What I got was the opposite (and I'm being polite).
Its a very pungent and unpleasent smell. One that forces people to walk away.
Its true that it sort of smells like some sort of bacon, but its well over cooked and left out to rot.
I strongly recommend the scientist at Yankee go back to their chemistry sets and re-formulate their concoction. I would love to be a tester if that ever happens. Until then, I am sending this Mmm Bacon out in the trash. sorry.

Was not one of my favorites.
I felt this candle did not live up to Yankee standards. I felt
the smell was more like "greasy" bacon than a good smell.
I have only been able to burn it for about half an hour and
the smell was making me uncomfortable. It won't change
my buying habits/opinion on Yankee Candles but it just
wasn't for me. I bought it for my husband but he wouldn't
let it burn any longer.

Smells like Beggin Strips
This candle was sent to my son. He has a dog and it has driven the dog crazy. It smells like Beggin Strips and the dog is constantly whining for a Beggin Strip.
I bought it because my son LOVES bacon and thought it would be cute. So not worth the money because he can't burn it unless he wants to hear his dog whine.

For any bacon lovers out there
I bought this for my son who is 27 and a bacon fanatic! Needless to say it was a major hit with him and his buddies. He said the scent is very strong, and makes him quite hungry actually, so maybe it might not be for everyone. I'm sure he will be looking to replace this one with another when it's gone. Thanks for making his birthday present great!
