Star Fruit & Orange
What made me purchase this candle was the review that said it smells like walking into a smoothie shop. It does smell exactly like that! It's sweet without being sickening. It's citrusy, bright, crisp, smooth, refreshing. It's not a super strong throw, but it fills my small kichen beautifully. If I go outside and come back in I get a perfect amount of "oh, that smells good". Nice, fresh background smell, not "wow, that's a strong candle!". After burning my first one for several hours I went back online to purchase a couple more during the SAS. I have probably at least 100 yankee candles (I don't even want to know the exact number anymore and neither does my husband!) This one has earned a favorite status meaning I have multiples in case they never come back. I will probably never burn all of them in my lifetime since I just keep buying more, but I just had to have several Starfruit & orange because I enjoy it so much!

Very weak throw
I purchased this because it had such great reviews and I wanted a juicy, fruity scent for my home for summer.
This fragrance is nice. Juicy, citrusy, and summery just like I wanted. It's quite light even when you smell it in the jar, but when you burn it it's even lighter!
After burning it for 6 hours straight, I can smell it only if I'm standing right next to it. Anywhere else in the room you wouldn't even know it's burning!
It is burning well though, even wax pools and steady flame.
Would not repurchase or recommend though as this is does not scent my home which is the reason I purchased it. Yankee Candle as a whole is still a win for me, out of many candles this is the first that has not done what I wanted it to.

not fragrant enough
This candle had an extremely mild soft scent....could really only smell it when holding it up to your nose to sniff it. I did return it to the store without problems. It seems that the two wick tumblers have a stronger throw for me.

Sweet Fruit Smell!
This candle has a light-medium scent and a decent throw. The smell reminds me of orange/pineapple soft serve.. yum! I only wish the scent was a little stronger.

This is my first Yankee Candle purchase and I am pleased.
The best way I can describe it is...a big bowl of creamy orange sherbert melted by the warm sun.
It's not too strong but just strong enough.
I totally see it as a summer scent but also as something I'd burn during the winter months. Something to pick up your spirits during the gloomy days and give you that kick of energy.

Really love this one!
I'm so glad I read all the reviews and took a chance with this candle. It has a pleasant citrus scent that is not heavy with sweetness. I have a sensitive nose but enjoyed a nearly six hour first burn without any ill effects. That's pretty remarkable for me. The scent really is refreshing as Grandma86 wrote. I would call the throw moderate, but I believe those of you with less sensitive noses would describe it as a light throw. If you have tall ceilings or prefer heavier fragrances with strong throws this candle may not be for you. If your nose is sensitive, fill up your shopping bag! I just ordered 12 jars! Help! I need to go to Yankee rehab!

I ordered this candle online without smelling it at a store because it sounded like it would be a good one. When I got it, I didn't like the cold smell but decided to burn it anyway, and I found that I really like it. It's not too strong, but very fruity and refreshing. Perfect for summer. I like fruity candles, and I am enjoying this one.

-Sweet Summer Orange-
I enjoy all citrus fruits but orange is my favorite because it's the sweetest of the group. This candle captures the sweet and ripe fragrance of summer oranges freshly squeezed into a juice glass-Delicious! I already have YC's Orange Citrus Passion which is like orange candy and Darling Clementine which smells like orange zest. This candle is a bit milder than those and smells like it also contains apricot (maybe it's the star fruit) which is another fruit I adore. So as the temperature inches ever closer to the century mark here in Texas, this light yet full and energizing candle will be the one I will reach for this summer.
