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.

Wonderful Fresh Fragrance
Oceanside is one of my favorites. So happy to see that it is on the available list all year long!

Cool Water perfume in a candle
As this was burning, this smelled just like Cool Water perfume, which is one of my favorites. It has a beachy scent, but not overpowering like some that give me a headache. This votive has a very good throw, too. A nice summer scent.

Oceanside is a summer favorite!
I love the smell of Yankee's Oceanside! This votive burned well and the scent throw was pretty good!
