Relaxing Rituals™ Calm Blended Scented Candle
Reminds Me of Getting a Massage
I love this candle in the bedroom at night when I'm winding down from the day or soaking in the tub. It's not terribly strong, but you can definitely smell it. The 3 smells work together so that none are overpowering, a true blended smell. It always has a calming effect on me, hence the name.
However, this candle is very different from the traditional "jar candles" and other YC scents. It reminds me of the place where I get massages with essential oils.
I hope YC keeps this one!

Yes, yes and yes!
It is very difficult to find a candle that is designed to be tranquil and be of decent quality. This Yankee Candle line is amazing.
I was in the habit of getting off brand candles and lighting several at once to capture the strength of this candle. This was not only dangerous but costly overtime.
I am incredibly satisfied with this line.

Crazy about this scent!
Calm is the perfect way to describe this scent. The vanilla, lavender, and sandalwood make a perfect combination for relaxation. I found it originally in the Yankee Candle catalog, with the rub and sniff pages. Who ever invented that should get an award, because its the best way to candle shop from home. My mom normally doesn't like the smell of sandalwood but she is a huge fan of the Relaxing Rituals Calm Blended Scented Candle. I keep having to steal my candle back from her when I want to use it. :) I guess I know what to buy for her birthday.

Smells Like Generic Soap
I bought this candle thinking it would be a delight in my bathroom by the whirlpool tub, but let me tell you something: it smells just like the cheap soap my grandparents bought as a child. It is so strongly soapy that I cannot identify the clean, crisp lavender or the creamy sandalwood. It's just like melting a big bar of soap. Is it strong? Not really. It's got a medium throw, at best.
I took it back and am trying the Refresh version of these. I will report back on that one in the future.
Bottom line: skip this if you're looking for a truly calming, lavender-filled experience. What you're getting is soap. Unless you like soap, in which case, you better buy these before they're (smartly) discontinued.

Not quite what I thought it'd be, but still very nice!
I bought this candle for my bedroom to use as a way to relax and unwind. It's a very nice smelling candle, but I thought it'd smell mostly like lavender and it doesn't. It is a pretty even mixture of all three - lavender, vanilla and sandalwood. So if that's what you're looking for, it's perfect. But if you're like me and are looking for something with a more pure lavender smell then I would keep looking.
