Sunny floral scent!
I've been waiting for this candle to arrive and now it's here! This fragrance is heavenly. I detect a combination of different Yankee scents. It has hints of Green Grass and sweet clover, definitely Tulips, a little daisy fragrance, and something warm, sweet, and sunny, like a touch of orange or citrus. This candle does smell like the first warm day of spring when you open your windows and the breeze blows in carrying all the scents of the great outdoors. Spring Days is labeled as a fresh scent, but there is a definite floral quality to it. I don't detect any powdery or perfume like fragrances in it. Nor any masculine scents that are often the base for "outdoor" scents or some of the candles labeled as a fresh scent. This scent remind me of sunshine and the days getting longer. Standing outside on a spring afternoon after the day has warmed up, facing the sun, and taking that first deep breath. I love the sunny yellow of the wax with the cute tulip picture. Looks great with the Daisy Crackle Shade. I will keep this candle out all season. I will have to ration how often I burn it to make it last. I would rate this candle in the mid range of throw. It is a lighter scent though so I would recommend it for only scenting one room, with maybe hints outside of that room.

I was surprised when I burned this based on all of the reviews of how subtle the scent is I found just the opposite and my husband blew it out it was so strong and not an appealing scent to us at all - I hope I can return it at the store for something different :(

Very Spring like
I really like this candle. At first I couldn't smell it but then later I could. I might have to get some more of this candle.

I bought this candle on a whim and boy am I happy I did. The cold smell left me a little iffy as it smell a lot like Green Grass. I wasn't getting any of the floral notes at first sniff.
Well, I decided to light it anyways. I burned this candle in my kitchen and was cooking dinner throughout the duration of the initial burn. Gradually I could smell it. At first it was soft and I got the faint smell of rain on fresh cut grass. Behind it I got the beautiful floral notes. The longer I burned the candle, the more impress I was by the fragrance. This one is a keep for sure. It reminds me of a spring garden, right after a rain. I simply love it.

Essence of the season
I selected this candle while searching for a truly springtime scent, not an offering from the exotic and very summery YC 2014 Spring Collection. From first cold sniff through burn fragrance, I was not disappointed by this fresh depiction of seasonal bloom. While delicate enough to evoke those first happy and always welcome gifts of early spring (rather than the mature lushness of high summer), there is still plenty of bouquet to go around, with at least medium or better throw. A pleasure to burn and very representative of the early blossoming beauties of this long-awaited season!

Smells terrific, but.......
I have some tarts in this scent and think they smell soooo good! But, unfortunately for me I have a strange reaction to it. I get a severe sinus headache when using them. I have tested it several times with the same result. As soon as I put it out, and the smell dissapaits, I feel better. So sad because it really it a fabulous scent. I personally thought they were very strong, and had a great throw. Oh well, I guess you can't have it all.....

one of the lighter ones
I've used honeysuckle, lilac blossom, fresh cut roses, and meadow showers in the Springtime. This one is a little lighter than any of these. It's not too sweet ( I hate sweet candles and ones with vanilla). I would not use it in a large room. The scent would be too subtle.
