The scent is a little bit on the light side(I used a votive so jar may be better) but still very good. It kind of reminds me of the cupcake dolls from the 80s/90s when I was a little girl.

It's a very toned down berry smell, but it's an artificial smell, like something that reminded me of a dentist's office for some reason. It didn't smell like ice cream, but rather the strawberry cheesecake fluoride treatment I got as a kid. Not for me.

Strawberry Ice Cream!
This is my new favorite summertime candle scent.
When you open the wrapper if you close your eyes you will think you just cracked the lid on a gallon of fresh strawberry ice cream.
It smells like a little bit of strawberry heaven.

The smell reminds me of summers in the ice cream shop near home. These candles bear up well with use and don't burn out rapidly,. Smell lasts a long time. There is no better burning candle than Yankee Candle.

I don't know how Yankee does it, but I can actually smell the cold on this one! The throw is quite strong, even in an open room. Sweet, strawberry ice cream goodness. Perfect for summer.

This scent is great! It reminds me of all those scented toys I had as a child, like the Strawberry Shortcake dolls. It really does smell like a scoop of berry ice cream and maybe some cotton candy as well. Everyone who smells this always asks me where they can buy it. I'm pretty sensitive to smells and get headaches easily, but this doesn't effect me. If you like sweet candy scents, definitely get this candle.

This isn't sweet strawberry , or strawberry buttercream. (I didn't like either one of those candles)
This medium intense scent is a cool, creamy delight. It's strawberry ice cream or a shake. The cream cuts the strawberry to not make it overpowering.

I knew when I first received my catalog in the mail that I was going to love this scent; and hoping that the fragrance mirrored the label. One sniff of the catalog's "sniffit" sent hubby and I to our local YC store the next day. Summer Scoop has a whispey scent of strawberry without all the sweetness and I think a hint of blueberry. This is the perfect candle to burn in the heat of Florida summers. I have very tall ceilings and one large fills the biggest room in the house and coupled with a few votives makes the entire house seem "edible". I already have several large jars and votives..this is one to stock up on.
