Nice but Poor Throw
I bought the large version of this candle having tried and loved the car air freshener in this scent. Strangely, I found the actual candle had quite a different scent to the car jar I tried. The car jar smells like a rich, musky men's aftershave. If you've smelled First Down from the Man Candle series, it definitely has similarities. In fact, First Down smells kind of like Leather and Mountain Lodge combined.
On a cold sniff of the large jar version I can smell orange oil quite strongly, but there's also an unusual and unexpected chocolateliness to it. Not bad at all, just not the same as the car jar and without those rich woody notes. Unfortunately, the candle has a very weak throw when burned. I found I needed to be right next to it to smell anything at all and even then all I could smell were the orangey notes. When I purchased this candle it was during the special appearances of certain retired scents, so perhaps it was a bit aged and the scent wasn't as rich as it originally would've been.
I'm giving this candle three stars because I know this is actually a lovely cologne type scent, but unfortunately the quality of the candle I received was not great.

What a delight
I had been dying to smell this candle for a long time, was extremely happy to see it on the UK store. The candle smells lovely, a very delicate smell but lovely none the less. The scent is similar to Treehouse Memories.

I have bought a number of Yankee candles and this is the first one I have been unhappy
with. You cannot smell the Mountain Lodge candle unless you are right over it and no way can you smell it in the lounge (a small lounge) like my other Yankee candles.

I am very disappointed with my recent purchase of a large mountain lodge candle. On reciept of my candle i immediately opened it to find it smelled nothing like the discription. I was expecting a wonderful combination of cedarwood and sage. It however smelled very sweet and sickly almost vanilla like. Cedar wood smells very clinical and anteseptic. I regularly purchase your candles but in this case you have got a very unsatisfied customer.

I always loved the mountain lodge range but haven't been able to get any for a loooong time! My other favourite is honey and spice

This candle smells awesome... if you stick your face in the un-lit candle and breathe deeply. Unfortunately, it's very hard to smell while burning, even in a very small space. Very disappointing, especially since I exchanged another candle that didn't smell for this one. If it had a better throw, it would definitely be a 5-star!

Dream come true
As someone who has wanted to holiday in a log Cabin/ mountain lodge,
This is exactly what I imagined it to be like, the smell of a log fire and the outdoorsy smell of pine trees.
With this candle burning, it feels like I am living my dream holiday.
