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.

Smells good cold
This candle smells amazing cold! It is the most accurate scent I have come across to fresh strawberry ice cream.
That’s about all I can say that’s good about this candle.
When lit, the wicks would keep caving in. I constantly had to watch and nurse it, and scoop out wax or soak up melted wax to make the flames bigger to it wouldn't cave. Also, I get practically no scent from the burning wax. I might consider purchasing another one of these in the large jar form, but never the tumbler again. The performance was terrible.

One the whole family can agree on
I love this scent because its one the whole family can agree on. I especially love it in the large tumbler because the throw is a bit stronger than the large jar candle and it smells amazing! My husband even requests this scent but he calls it the "ice cream" candle. This is a top favorite at our house.

The vanilla stands out.
Smells like Strawberry Vanilla Ice Cream to me, and I love it. The throw is slightly less than average, and I have to burn the candle for more than an hour before the fragrance builds in a room. It is my favorite vanilla-based fragrance from Yankee; I prefer it to Vanilla Cupcake and Vanilla Lime. I like layering it with other candles -- Summer Scoop plus Cinnamon Stick equals strawberry scone! The only downside is the appearance of the wax. After I put out the candle and the wax re-sets, the top layer of wax is a very different color, a pale tan, instead of light pink. I have purchased a number of Summer Scoop candles and they all had this problem.

Smells just like strawberry ice cream....
Until you light it. I had such hi hopes for this candle. It smells soooo good when you take the lid off. But when you light it, you just can't smell it. disappointing, VERY disappoint.

I ordered 2 large tumblers and there was hardly any scent to be had. very disappointing for the cost of these candles.
