Peppermint & Vanilla Goodness
I bought this about a month ago and I planned on waiting until the holiday season to burn it but decided one day that I would just use it since I was excited to smell it (the peppermint and vanilla combo sounded amazing) and my expectations were met! I just wish that the tart lasted longer because it seemed to fade out faster than some of my other tarts but I'm still going to repurchase this because it smells amazing!

Smells like a candy cane
North Pole smells nice and minty..like a candy cane!! I also detect vanilla too. The scent is strong at first, but does fade after a couple of hours.

Smells like peppermint bark with a bit of a bigger kick. I love burning this when its snowing. It livens up the house with the strong mint but then its toned down with the creamy vanilla.

Love this! It's cool and minty but the vanilla takes the bite out of the mint. It's smooth and easy on the nose. Appropriate just about anywhere!

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.
