Napa Valley Sun™
Warm, Relaxing, Classic
When I first saw this I wasn't sure what to think. I pictured grapes, wine, and an earthy smell. I sniffed the tart through the wrapper and started to put it down but the fragrance was captivating. I bought 3 to try out. I'm am so happy I found this tart! It has a warm, musky but subtle.vanilla aroma (not the baking/food type of vanilla) and something slightly powdery. I don't profess to be an aroma expert but Napa Valley Sun is WONDERFUL! I've had several friends stop by and everyone has commented on how much they love the scent! One reviewer commented they mix it with other scents, however, in my opinion, Napa Valley Sun stands on it's own wonderfully. The throw is medium, neither too subtle nor too strong. I sincerely hope Yankee Candle keeps this scent in it's line up . I like to use Midnight Jasmine when I'm on the veranda on a warm summer night, Napa Valley Sun or Golden Sands during the late afternoon or early evening, Wedding Day during a more formal gathering and Tahitian Tiare Flower in my bedrooms and bathrooms. I would like to see tarts in Stargazer Lily and Queen Anne's Lace again. If you do decide to discontinue Napa Valley Sun please let us know so we can stock up on this fragrance that is becoming my signature.

Sweet light fragrance
This is an awesome scent. It is light and airy but with settle hints of clean and light fruit. I love it!

Good for Layering with Other Scents
On its' own, I liked the scent, but not the strength-has a vanilla with a powdery undertone scent. First used it alone in my bedroom & it didn't even fill the entire room with scent, so then I tried it together with an older vanilla satin that I had & also used it with fluffy towels-with those, it gave an extra vanilla boost which I liked. I used the last one with a lavender vanilla tart & loved that combo. If it ever gets brought back I will get it for layering. If you are in to layering, that's what I'd recommend this tart for OR if you have a smaller area to use it in-if not, you may not be happy with the lack of strength that the majority of the tarts have. If you like lavender vanilla, this is what the vanilla part of that scent smells like only with a tad of a powdery amber undertone. If you like to layer, it adds to the depth of the vanilla tones you smell as the tarts melt. For the clearance price, it was well worth trying for future decisions if they bring it back again. I also bought this in the votives, but can't smell them unless I'm right next to them so I won't get it in the sampler votive again, just the wax tart & just for layering with other scents. It gives a room a warm feeling-it isn't one of the crisp, clean scents that are perfect for that "just cleaned the house" smell that are great for the kitchen/main floor areas. I put it In the category of scents good for relaxing that help you unwind after a long day.

I Love It!
I purchased this in candle form years ago and returned it because it was not as strong as I like my fragrances and I never tried it again. Recently I was reading the reviews on it and decided to try it again but in tart form, boy have I been missing out. The reviews commented on the sweetness which I live for. This is one of those scents you can re-light about two or three times and still smell it. Thank goodness for sales I just purchased two boxes along with some other scents on the Semi-Annual Sale a couple of days ago. And here I am right back looking for more things to buy. Boy I need some help. But I love, love, love having a fragrance burning in almost every room of my home. Every area I walk in I smell something and it makes me feel wonderful.

Sunshine for your home
Napa Valley Sun would make a fabulous "signature scent" for your home. It's a subtle fragrance, but the throw is great. It just makes your home feel warm and welcoming. It evokes feelings of calm and contentment. Love it!

Too Sweet and Strong for Me
My review summary says it all. I loved this scent in the store but when I melted it at home it was too sweet for my liking and then as the throw increased, it filled my entire house with the overpowering sweet smell. I had to turn it off, wait for it to cool, then toss it. I have two other tarts, not sure what I'll do with them.

I love mixing scents, but this one is great all on its own. It's a nice sweet, clean smell. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but its very nice. I'd almost say it lifts my mood! I only gave it a 'good' because I wish it was a bit stronger, but definitely one of my favorites!

Happy, Happy Scent/Feeling
I tried this scent for the first time during the $1waxer melts sale. I am so happy, happy I did. This has become my new favorite fragrance. I wish I had ordered more. This scent lingered for nearly two days in my living room and home office. Please have more $1 sales because I always try new scents during this time.
