Clean & Relaxing!
Ocean Star is a beautiful, fresh scent that helps me to relax and unwind. I would describe this scent as watery with a little zing of citrus. The teal blue wax and the picture of the starfish on the front is beautiful, which makes me think that Ocean Star would be really nice in a large jar. The tart gave off a medium strong throw… my only criticism is that the scent lasted less than eight hours (in my Yankee electric tart warmer).

Fresh and Strong!
This fragrance is a very nice, fresh aquatic fragrance with a fantastic throw! I do get the citrus and lotus blossom when this is melting. It is similar to that of Ocean Water and Turquoise Sky except I don't feel like this fragrance is as harsh. It's a very springy scent perfect for every day!

I go through phases with my scent preferences, but this is one that is gently and kind so I never get tired of it. Great in betweener for me, and I never get tired of the breezy scent (:

This scent reminds me a lot of Ocean Water and Turquoise Skies. Ocean Star had more of a musk and sea grass smell than I thought it would. I didn't really smell any floral notes or citrus in it. Maybe I just got a tart that was off a little bit or my warmer was too warm, altering the notes of the fragrance. The scent was still fresh and close to what the ocean smells like to me when the tide comes rolling in. I would like to see if the large jar smells different, but not sure I want invest in something I don't really love.

Good. I like a pleasant odor and refreshing fragrance. I didn't expect this fragrance but it's better than expected. It makes me feel refreshed.

Best Scent Ever By Yankee!
I have written my review on the large jar as I purchased one online and already burned through it. Went to my local store and stocked up on it!!! In almost 20 years, I've never come across a fragrance as wonderful as this one. I absolutely love the smell of the lotus flower and citrus that comes through as well as the fabulous scent that travels through large open rooms. I burned 1 tart and it lasted 3 days!! Now that's when you stock up like myself and get your monies worth!! I couldn't believe I burned this for over 12 hours and still had fragrance. That's how the tarts should be and especially when you stock up on them and pay quite a bit for Yankee candles and tarts. Although I use coupons and take advantage of the semi annual sales, I would pay full price for this Ocean Star line and hope they come out with oils and sprays for this scent and I'm sure they won't keep it in stock as this is my number 1 scent of my collection and I have over 30 large jars of my favorites. Actually, I stocked up on the other 2014 scents in this line and plan on stocking up more. I would never want to run out of this fabulous fresh scent and it's worth every penny. This is a good buy whether it's on sale or not and my number 1 favorite. Yankee, please consider a line of oils, sprays, and any other products you can come out with of this scent, PLEASE! It's fabulous!!! Thanks again....

Smells like a watered down version of Turqoise Sky. If you like TS, then this is for you. Not sure this is much of a "new" line up if it smells almost identical to a not so new scent.

Feels like beach and spa
Cleansing, relaxing, and yet refreshing, just as you would expect from a seaside sojourn! This new candle seems to artfully wrap the feel of both fresh ocean waters and renewing spa experience in one lovely tart. Lightly perfumed (and with about average throw), this candle evokes a peaceful yet revitalizing mood.
