This candle reminds me of childhood days eating my favorite, strawberry ice cream, while swinging on the swings in my backyard!!
This scent is incredibly realistic...it smells just like strawberry ice cream! I used to buy the sweet strawberry, and that was my favorite, until Yankee Candle came out with Summer Scoop! This is not your strawberry smell, it is strawberry ice cream. This candle has a great throw and will scent your large room with no problem. I have an kitchen that is open to my family room and sometimes have a hard time finding a scent that will work with such an open area. But Summer Scoop has a throw that actually can be smelled throughout my entire downstairs. This is one candle that I will be stocking up on this summer. ~~Trish

Will definitely get more of these!
There is something really special about this fragrance. It isn't like a strawberry cake, or flat out strawberry, I don't pick up the ice cream scent, but I bought this when it first came out last summer. I STILL AM BURNING IT, off and on. It has really lasted a LONG time. It is so relaxing and always seems to bring a smile to my face. I do wish they went on sale though.

Summer Scoop is definitely a summer scent! It smells like ice cream, strawberries, and a hint of whipped cream. I just love burning it during the hotter days because I feel like I am eating a Strawberry Sundae on the beach. Awesome scent and good, strong throw!

This one was a huge disappointment
This candle was a huge disappointment. I had purchased this some time ago because I love the smell of the candle. Once lit however; there was no throw at all. I always try a new scent out in the same room in my home. I then moved it to a closed smaller room (1/2 bath) with no better luck. No matter what I did; I couldn't "smell" this one. I will not be purchasing this one again.

Smells like tangy mixed berries!
I really don't get the whole "ice cream" notion with this one; it smells more to me like a basket of ripe, tangy berries instead of a berry ice cream. Nonetheless, I really like this one and would purchase again.

Yet ANOTHER disappointing purchase
Once again I am extremely disappointed with this product. I always test new scents in the smallest room in my house (a half bath with the door closed). After burning this candle for 3 hours I opened the door and could smell absolutely nothing! Seems this is the case with any Yankee candle anymore. You would think spending almost $30 for a candle, it would be an amazing throw but sadly with Yankee this is not the case. I have much better luck with smaller online vendors whose prices are lower and product quality far surpasses anything purchased from Yankee over the past few years.

Ice cream for sure
Think creamy, strawberry ice cream or sherbert... The cold smell is exactly just that. The smell dwindles once lit though, I actually don't smell it much at all once lit. The color and label are pretty (not a pink person myself though). It would be a great summer candle, especially for those w/ little ones. Always an excuse for ice cream with this puppy sitting out. I probably wouldn't buy it again though, only b/c I'm not a fan of "creamy" strawberry.

Think ice cream
This smells exactly like homemade strawberry ice cream. When it's lit, the fragrance is light but still noticeable. Makes it feel like summer.
