One of my top 3 preferred scents from Yankee Candle
I've always loved the dark, spicy notes when it comes to scented candles, and the stronger the better. I know some people find these types of scents overpowering, but some folks are the exact opposite and enjoy the robust smell, such as myself. Mountain Lodge has been one of my favorites for years, but recently I ordered 3 Mountain Lodge along with 3 Clean Cotton, all of them large jar candles, during the BOGO 50% off sale and I'm disappointed. It seems YC has diluted the scent of the Mountain Lodge candle, quite noticeably. My home has 3 levels and in years past when I've lit Mountain Lodge candles on the bottom floor the smell has wafted all the way up to the top floor, permeating throughout the entire house, which is precisely why I use it. This time it barely scents the bottom floor where I have it lit. It's frustrating for me to pay $28 (when not on sale) for a candle and have it not be worth the price. YC please strengthen the formula of the Mountain Lodge candle and return it to its original glory! And if you give the Clean Cotton formula an added boost as well, all the better! Thank you :)

Shut up and take my money!!!!!
This candle matches the decor in my kitchen perfectly so I took a chance and bought it with never having smelled it and some negative reviews about it having a weak throw.
Well let me just say this is has become my absolute favorite and Im completely obsessed! The smell is amazing! Perfectly captures the feel of the rustic outdoors! As far as the throw goes it is not nearly as weak as some reviews but it is not overpowering either. Its perfect, it filled my kitchen up with fragrance (I used a candle warmer lamp even though yankee says not to, i do burn candles as well but in my opinion the candle warmer disperces more fragrance faster)
Im in love with this candle and look forward to buying it over and over again so dont discontine it!

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.
