After burning this candle for over 5 hours in a small space, there was no throw. Returned it and this is now the 4th candle in the past month with no throw. Yankee please listen to all the bad reviews and facebook posts and put more scent in your candles like their used to be! You will lose customers slowly if this continues....

Subtle Strawberry Scent
Anyone who has read my reviews know that I prefer the stronger scents. However, despite concerns over this scent being faint, I purchased it anyway because it smelt so good in the store. Well, I should have followed my instincts because while Summer Scoops does smell like strawberries, it is a mild fragrance, sort of like having two or three berries in the fridge instead of an entire carton. Despite this, I still feel like this fragrance is worthy of recommending. Many people like the subtler scents and if you are among them, Summer Scoops just might be what you are looking for.

I loved this before I lit it. It did smell exactly like strawberry ice cream. Sadly, when lit it had a very poor throw and smelled like a very faint version of Sweet Strawberry. I much prefer to just buy the Sweet Strawberry candle, because it is very strong and just an all around fantastic spring and summer scent. Summer Scoop did burn evenly, so if you are looking for a light strawberry scent, this may be just right for you.

This has THE MOST HEAVENLY SMELL! Exactly like Strawberry Ice Cream. Reminds me of the cones I would get in the summer at my Grandmother's.
Exactly like Strawberry Ice Cream. Reminds me of the ice cream cones I would get in the summer at my Grandmother's. FANTASTIC and fresh. My new favorite!

I did not allow myself to buy this candle for a whole year based on other reviews and youtube reviewers, I bought this today at my Yankee Store on a two wick tumbler and it's awesome! burns nice and throw is medium but the actual scent is soooo good! this candle could be excellent if it was a little stronger! I hope Yankee understand sooner or later that majority of us like our throw STRONG!
Overall really awesome job with fragrance developing and performance, I had so many issues with Yankee in the past that I opted to stop buying them! but this one won me over!

Strawberry Ice Cream!!
This scent is dead on! Its really amazing how they got the scent so authentic! My little brother always asks me to burn it when he comes over. I wish the scent was a little bit stronger, it does fill the room it is in and it smells delicious! The wax has always pooled nice and even. I am glad this candle has hung around for a while!

Like sitting in a bowl of Strawberry Ice Cream
I think it's a terrific scent - just like strawberry ice cream. The double-wick tumbler releases the scent very quickly even though the candle seems to be lasting a long time. I have it in a large room; the scent fills the room quickly and then drifts throughout the house.

Smells Better Unlit Than Burning
The smell of this candle when you take off the lid and breathe deeply is divine! It smells exactly like strawberry ice cream! I absolutely loved that. However, burning it does not have the same affect. It is way too subtle for me. I need something stronger than that. That is why I buy the double wick tumblers because I feel they have stronger scents. If it's not that great in the double wick tumbler, it must be even more subtle in the jar candle variety. Disappointed.
