Love. This is fresh and clean and smells so good! It has a bit of a floral note but does not smell perfumey to me.

Breaks the mold
I don't usually care for the beach-fresh candles, but I LOVE Ocean Star! It is not too perfumey or overpowering for my tastes. It simply gives you that "ahhhh" feeling while it burns! Beautiful fragrance.

Not quite oceany enough.
There is a lot to love about this fragrance, but for me it comes too close to the "dryer sheet" range and not near enough to the salty ocean smell I want. I would prefer it if it was "brisker" and less floral. What makes it better than the average fabric-softener-type fragrance: it does not have the strong powdery scent common to most. Throw is medium to strong, almost a "whole house" fragrance. The bright blue wax makes it one of Yankee's more attractive candles.

Nice Job Yankee!
Yankee did a great job on this one. It is strong enough to scent the main part of the house well yet it is still light and refreshing. The beautiful color and pretty label are great too, really a very pretty candle.
We first got this to bring along on our son's first visit to Walt Disney World. We burned it whenever we were able while on vacation and now when burning it at home it brings up the wonderful memories we made.
This is a great scent to enjoy in spring and summer. It has floral and citrusy notes but also really reminds me of the ocean. I don't know what to call that scent but it's there, and this comes from someone who has grew up in Key Largo :) Please keep this unchanged and available for a long time Yankee!

Subtle but powerful
This fragrance is amazing, the subtle smell of ocean water tempered with floral undertones. Vaguely reminiscient of Storm Watch.

When I first bought this candle I was in love with it, don't get me wrong I still like it, but when I lit it, it smelled very different form how it smelled before it was lit.
It's actually got a soapy sort of smell to it. It sort of reminds me of a hotel. I originally bought it to throw a nice beach scent into my newly beach decorated bathroom, but it ended up not smelling very much like a beach to me. It's got a crisp clean scent to it, and it's still pleasant, but I feel a more appropriate name could work really well with it too! When I feel like the air seems sort of stale this is the candle I usually light to refreshen and make the air smell soft and clean!

Relaxing, Calming and great throw
I have to say that I liked this scent on cold but when burning, it is a beautiful scent and it just is taken to another level. The color of the wax is so pretty and tranquil. (Blue hues are known to induce relaxation). It has an awesome throw without being cloying. I love the fact that it is not a sweet, sickening, or perfumey scent in any way. It reminds me of salty sea air scents. It is calming, soothing, relaxing, and takes you to 'that place'. This is the perfect candle to burn to de-stress after a long day. The imagery that best come to mind with the scent is 'fresh, salty, warm air with just a gentle breeze.' Definitely a re-purchase for me.

one of the better
ocean star is a very lovely fragrance. I find it to be clean, fresh, and relaxing.It has a better throw than a lot of the ones I have burned lately. Gave it four stars because I like strong smelling ones with a good throw.
