"Teddy's" picture on the label summarizes the comforting and enveloping appeal of this popular candle. Its purity of color and gentle infusion of soothing vanilla and amber exude a nearly palpable warmth as it disseminates. While some have commented that Soft Blanket should be stronger in throw, it strikes me as being in lovely balance just as it is - a fragrance memorable in mood and texture, soft yet never suffocating. No wonder it is a longstanding favorite and one I am truly glad to have finally discovered!

Oh how I loved soft blanket..
...LOVED being the operative word. I had Soft Blankets in the last and they were so strong I couldn't keep them in my bathroom lit because it was just too much scent, verging on headache inducing. I purchased another large jar last month and was extremely disappointed. I couldn't smell a thing! To test it I put it in my bathroom (the same one) and after 5 hours couldn't smell it at all. Seriously. I was having a party and asked my guests and they thought it was unscented! For the price we pay this is absurd. Soft blanket is one of the best fragrances I've smelled, but until they boost the fragrance oils back to where they were a few years ago, I refused to purchase this scent again.
I went to the store nearest me to exchange it for a two wick pillar, thinking that'd have more throw. In store when I smelled the other candles they all had virtually no scent. I knew that they wouldn't throw either, so decided to ditch my beloved soft blanket altogether. I ended up exchanging my jar for a Vineyard (AMAZING throw and scent) and am beyond happy that Yankee is still making SOME candles right.

One of my top Yankee fragrances!
Soft blanket is definitely in my top 5 Yankee candle fragrances! It is a beautiful, calming scent! I love burning this candle in the evenings before going to bed. It reminds me of a child sleeping peacefully with no worries. This candle also has a great scent throw and fills my large bedroom after only 20-30 minutes of burning! This scent is not overpowering at all. If I could convince everyone to try at least one scent for Yankee Candle, this is the definitely the one.

Soft Blanket helps me relax
This scent helps me wind down after a busy day and I seem to sleep better and longer when this scent is in the air. It is a very comforting scent.

Disappointed in the throw
Soft Blanket is truly one of YC's best fragrances, but I am very disappointed in the lack of throw. The fragrance itself is amazing but even with a full wax pool it did not even fragrance my fairly small bedroom. The amount of scent was comparable to that of one of the votive candles. I purchased the large jar at full price because I had fallen in love with the scent. In hindsight, if I had known it would be so incredibly subtle in the jar I would have just purchased votives and tarts.

This candle was given to me as a gift, and I have since purchased them as gifts for others because this is a neutral scent - neither masculine or feminine. This scent doesn't have overly floral or musky tones but is instead very well-balanced, and it isn't overpowering. It is perfectly noticeable, and my husband enjoys the scent as well. I love large candles that fragrance an entire room, but this sends warm, soothing, gentle fragrance throughout the lower level of my home and even up the stairs. I have many seasonal candles, but I use this candle year-round, and it is especially delightful and calming if the power goes out!

Cuddling with a Soft Blanket!
I bought this for my daughter who loves the light scent of this candle. It reminds us of the cozy warm blanket in front of a fireplace! Perfect for a blustery New York winter night.

My New Favorite
I have always loved Yankee Candles but I've recently noticed my favorites were not producing a strong enough throw so I decided to try some new scents and I'm glad I came across this one. It fills my whole bedroom with a soft relaxing scent that is not overpowering but not a waste of money either. I find myself rushing home to light this candle to help start an enjoyable evening. It just makes you feel all warm and cozy. Definitely my new favorite!
