Over the River™
If only I could smell this...
I knew that this scent would be a lighter scent as soon as I smelled it before burning but I wasn't expecting to not smell it at all after hours of burning!! I ended up exchanging this for November Rain. Hopefully I just got a dud.

Reminds me of aftershave
While I think the fragrance is okay, I do not care for it for my purposes. I like to burn candles during my yoga exercises and this one is too sharp for me. It reminds me of a man's aftershave. But that is not to say it isn't nice. It's just not what I would choose for relaxation.

Mix this one with sage and citrus and you will have no choice but to lay back and just relax.

Kick back and unwind
Yankee's outdoorsy scents are my favorites, and they include Over The River, November Rain, Storm Watch and Early Sunrise. In both this candle and November Rain, the watery notes seem to take charge. However, Over The River seems to exude a lighter, more blended mix of fresh air and greenery along with a hint of cool, lapping water. I truly enjoy the gentle reach of this candle, its calming effect and lovely blue tint. The jar label, one of the most attractive, well sums up the candle's appeal of a lazy day along the river.
In keeping with this theme, the throw is not too bold, but more in the medium range, yet more than ample to fill my room. This is one to savor for quiet interludes.

Over the River - fresh with a masculine touch
We finished another large jar of Over the River last night. It seems to be our go-to candle recently when we cannot make up our minds which candle we want to light. It's fresh and airy and with a touch of men's cologne. The throw is good but it helps to have the ceiling fan on. That makes it the perfect candle for summer.

Family Agrees on this one!
Good throw and the family all agrees on this one. I like the strong scents and this one is a little stronger than some of the Yankees. Two thumbs up!

Wonderful scent - terrible throw
After burning strong scents regularly, like Autumn Leaves and White Christmas, I had a near-impossible time with this candle. I bought it in a large jar because the cold-sniff in the store reminded me of my grandmother's home. Unfortunately, once I got it home and started burning, the scent stayed right in the jar. Nearly burned my nose trying to see if I could smell it up close! I've retired the remaining 3/4 of the jar for smelling purposes at my desk at work - I really truly can only smell anything from this when it's cold. I quite hope the tart throws better, because the scent is wonderfully reminiscent of my grandma's home!

I burn this candle in my bedroom because the fragrance is not too overwhelming. I would definitely purchase it again.
