Summer Wish™ Scented Candle
I could not detect any scent at all
On cold sniff this candle is beautiful! However, when lit, it was a major disappointment. I like my melted wax scents medium-to-strong. This 1-wick Large Jar of Summer Wish had nothing. Even when I put it in my 8x8 sq. ft. bathroom I couldn't smell it unless I extinguished it and put my nose in the jar. I'm burning it down but I'll not purchase it again unless Yankee Candle re-formulates the strength. If you want to smell some note of fragrance in the room, I would not recommend this to you. The only plus and the reason why I gave this a "fair" instead of "poor" for the quality is that the wax burned well with an Illuma-Lid; a nice, even wax pool, and the wax is such a pretty green.

I love this scent in my home! It's very inviting!!

I call this a forever candle, because as long as Yankee Candle sells it, I will be buying a new one to replace the last jar I had of it.
I love this scent, it's very airy and delicate. I keep this candle in my bathroom and light it for a few hours every couple days. The smell lingers in the bathroom even when the candle is not lit. I actually have a cat litter box in that bathroom and the candle covers the smell of the cat litter as well. This candle has a soft smell to it, but has serious strength!
Love, Love love it!

I bought this candle from a local store- fell in love with the scent immediately after opening the lid. Perfect for spring, and a hint of something that reminded me of my childhood. I was SO excited to get a pleasant spring scent to counter all the cold, rainy days we've been having.
I hate to say that I'm extremely disappointed. Once lit, I can barely smell it (and I have a very sensitive sense of smell). I keep the candle burning all day, left the room and came back in, and was only able to smell a difference if I tried very hard. This would be the perfect spring scent if the candle was stronger, or there was a plug-in/diffuser option. I buy Yankee Candles for the gorgeous strength of their scents, and this fell far from the mark.

I am so glad I got this candle. Bought it on a whim with the buy one get one 50% off sale. That was the right thing to do!! I love that this is another Yankee Candle that smells exactly like its pretty jar label. Smells just like the summer breeze that carries a dandelion wish. Just lovely.

A delightful staple to add to any well developed candle arsenal
This candle has the perfect throw! Took me a while to find a candle that truly resonated with my decor and my fragrant preferences! My wife was overjoyed when I first bought this, and in weeks since we have abandoned our usual criteria for when to put out a new candle, and just kept the Summer Wish burning in our 3 seasons room. Everyone who comes by says the smell is a perfect blend of sweet and buttery, and I can't say how many times I've had to tell a guest what scent it is. Truly exciting to have added this to my standard set of fragrances.

This candle quite possibly is the most beautiful fragrance Yankee offers. The scent is light and clean smelling. Although the throw is one of the softer throws on a candle, I know this is how Yankee designed this fragrance so I went ahead and gave it 5 stars. This scent reminds me of relaxingn next to a cold, mountain stream where tiny wildflowers grow in the shade of tall trees. Pure, fresh, green, cool, and light. The soft florals in the fragrance are similar to the Midnight Jasmine scent. This fragrance has no powdery or perfumey tones to it. It is all soft green scents and light florals. Some floral scents can overwhelm people. Summer Wish isn't heavy like Fresh Cut Roses or Lilac Blossoms. It won't knock you over or become cloying. If you are one of those super smellers who can't take the heavy throws, this candle is for you! The great artwork of the label and the spring green color of the wax echo the softness of the fragrance. I had it in a medium sized room and it filled the space with a delicate scent. It even spilled out into other areas. I've tried this scent in the tart form and I must say, the tart is stronger than the large jar. I knew this scent was light though, so I was not disappointed. I've seen this candle at different stores around Europe. Over here it is called A Child's Wish. I would always pick it up and take a deep breath. When Summer Wish finally came to the American store I just had to pick it up. But no matter what the name, this scent is sure to please.

This is supposed to be a light, watery green throw. It's subtle, and perfect for when you don't want a heavy throw. I enjoy this candle very much, I bought 3 more. On days when I have a headache, this is perfect. The smell lingers with touches and waves just strong enough to catch here and there, very relaxing. So if you are looking for a stronger throw like this maybe go with Meadow Showers, which is amazing and Tulips being as fabulous as it is, is very strong with green notes. I love Summer Wish just the way it is...:)
