Sweet, Smart and Cool, like my partners
Sweet cake scents have grown on me. I expected to mix this with other stronger scents but I burn it alone often. It is a nice sweet vanilla throw with a slight peppermint accent. Sometimes I cut this candle up (and sniff the crumble, peppermint woot!) then melt it on a tart burner as I do not always like the soot. This peppermint is stimulating and relaxing; but not strong like a peppermint candy. I mix it with all the peppermint scents. Good for all seasons.

Yankee Candle's Perfect Pillar for the Perfect Scent!
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. The Large Perfect Pillar is beautiful on pedestals I have, tall enough to use for a centerpiece and It burns very well.
Yankee Candle describes this scent as "a sweet blend of icy cool mint and sugary rich vanilla cream"
I'll keep it accurate and simple... It 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.

This fragrance is so pleasant that it is aroma therapy for me! I agree with the other reviewer that the scent Jack Frost was great and North Pole is very similar. It is disappointing when they no longer have your favorite but nice when you find another that you can enjoy.

Smells delicious! Looks so nice!
We had a candle that my husband got from his mother who sold them long ago. It was called Jack Frost, and they had stopped making it (whoever "they" was, we don't know). We were both sad and wished we could get more as it was a wonderful scent. I burned the candle till the wick wouldn't stay lit then melted it on a candle warmer (yes it was that good - I used to get compliments frequently when I melted it at work!). So imagine my disappointment a few weeks ago while shopping on Yankee candle to find out both that they made a Jack Frost candle AND that they'd discontinued it and had no more. :(
I took a chance and ordered this pillar and to my joy, it turns out that Yankee's North Pole smells almost exactly like our Jack Frost from the days of old - I'm ordering more!! Plus, I love the shape of the Perfect Pillars. So lovely. :)

Ok, so it's no secret that I love Perfect Pillars and it's no secret that I love North Pole! This is the perfect candle! I love making candlescapes during the holidays and I love mixing and blending scents. If you haven't tried perfect pillars yet, get this one and try it. The labels peel off quickly and easily for a clean look , and sometimes I leave one or two on the jars just for fun. I like the label on North Pole, so I will probably leave that one on.
North Pole smells minty, cool, and fresh with a touch of vanilla. I love it!
