This tart had the strongest throw from any yankee tart I've tried so far. Delicious peppermint with a soft vanilla back note. Truly fabulous. I would have bought a large jar in this scent had the reviews claimed the throw was stronger. Bummer. :(

The scent was very subtle
I had high hopes for North Pole upon cold sniff. It was a soft vanilla mint but not minty like toothpaste. More like candy cane mixed with steamed vanilla milk. After burning in my tart burner for a couple hours I realized I forgot I was burning a tart! The scent was only noticeable right around the burner. I could not really detect it 10 feet away. The only time I noticed it was after I went outside for a couple minutes and then came back in the house. Even still it was barely perceptible. This was similar to my disappointment in Merry Marshmallow for the same reasons. I generally enjoy stronger scents, but I still appreciate subtlety however this was just too weak. The scent itself is great, the label is beautiful but I won't be purchasing again. I am still recommending it because the scent is fantastic, and maybe someone with a super sensitive nose (or dislike of strong scents) could still enjoy it.

I love peppermint, and this is a cool, fresh peppermint scent. Not a strong throw but then again, who would want their house to smell like toothpaste strong peppermint? I love this scent!

Favorite of all the Christmas scents
I love this scent. It's the perfect blend of peppermint and vanilla. It's refreshing and festive and I love that this tart has a strong throw. I also enjoy that this tart won't dye my tart warmers and burners because of the color.

VERY strong candy cane smell!!!
I personally loved this smell. I realized it was a strong candy cane smell but when my husband commented on how strong it was, then I knew it was a smell I could only burn when he wasn't home.

The smell does not last very long at all.
I looked forward to the smell of the peppermint but it was a very short lived smell. Very disappointing.

The best scent ever.....
The tarts' scent lasts a long time
I use this scent in almost every room. Have you ever gone over someone's house for dinner and they have a scented candle that makes the food taste like the candle? North Pole will not do that. Everyone commented on the scent, and loved it. In fact I kept putting out more of this candle all Winter.
North pole is the white chocolate kiss shaped candy sprinkled with Nonpareil that you get at a great local candy shop. North Pole is not sweet or sugary, It is cool peppermint candy cane with just enough of a warm white chocolate twist to make it irresistible.
