I originally bought this scent in a large tumbler for my mother in law after smelling what seemed like 100 others. She ended up loving it and so did I. I was very sad to hear that this scent was being discontinued. I ended up going to our local Yankee Candle and buying 10 different candles of this scent. I am truly in love with it and I don't think I will ever be able to find a replacement for it!

I LOVE this scent
This happens to be one of my favorite scents & I am devastated that they are discontinuing it. My family enjoys this scent along with many others. I sure wish it was still available in the larger jar sizes. :(

This votive does not remind me of the ocean at all. I thought that it had a strong perfume smell to it and was way too strong for my family. Disappointed because I was really looking forward to trying this scent.

Unfortunately, it doesn't remind me of the ocean.
Unfortunately, this scent doesn't remind me of the ocean. In trying to determine why, I've concluded that it must be the musky scent. To me, the scent kind of has a powdery smell to it. I believe that I probably wouldn't purchase it again.

Best smell yet.
I like a strong smelling candle. So many I can barely smell or can't smell at all. Oceanside gave off a scent as soon as the wax started melting and it's a nice scent. Will buy again.
Can someone suggest the stronger scents please? I'm new to Yankee.

Strong But Lovely Scent!
I buy this votive like it wouldn't make my wallet scream. This is my favorite votive for summer because it is a versatile smell and compliments other candles I like to simultaneously burn. It is a very fresh and warm smell and also very strong. When I walk past them from five feet away, I get a whiff--and this is not when they are burning. When they burn, the scent spreads through the entire floor of my house. It smells just like Yankee Candle's description: very fresh, musky, salty air. I don't live on the beach, but where I live, the summer air smells like this candle when it gets hot enough.

Sweet and salty ocean scent
What a great scent! I just started trying YC and I bought Oceanside to try before getting a larger jar. On first
"smell" I loved it. I tried it in a small bathroom and what a blast of fragrance from a small votive! I was pleasantly surprised by this. It does have a bit of a baby powder scent, but that just added to the appeal for me. My 8 yr old daughter said she thought it smells like the salty ocean!

I love the scent of Beach Flowers and Beach walk as well, so i thought I would try Oceanside. After three minutes of burning the votive, it smelled like a diaper-pail deodorizer. It smelled more like baby talcum powder than a walk by the ocean.
