Pay more, get less...
This large jar candle was burning in my 6' x 9' tiny bathroom for hours...the only thing it gave off was a flicker of light! I also have a very sensitive nose and to say this is a "lighter scented candle" is just insulting. Whatever happened to "America's Strongest Scented Candle"??? I don't think Yankee can make that claim anymore. I have a HUGE collection of large jar Yankees, as I have a candle burning whenever I am home. However, I think I've finally had enough of giving my hard earned money to this corporation and not getting much in return. Why don't you just admit that you changed the formula on all your candles...we keep paying more, while you give less.

No smell when burning.
Don't waste your money. You can not smell this candle at all, and I have a sensitive nose!

Summer Wish #1
I hope Yankee brings this lovely fragrance back.
Not strong enough to notice a candle is burning but fragrant enough to notice a calming scent in the air. I will recommend this for anyone who does not like food fragrances or strong fragrances in their house.

I have to agree with some of the other commenters: this candle smells lovely in store, but it puts off no scent AT ALL when it is burned. I have it in a small bathroom but there is still no detectable scent. This is so unfortunate because like I said, I loved the scent in the store! I just wish that the fragrance actually translated over when burning the candle.

After smelling this candle in the store I loved it but I got it home and you can't smell a thing when you burn it. Even with some of the softer scents I've been able to smell them while burning but this one is a true disappointment. Keep the smell but make it stronger.

Wishing for a better 'summer wish'
I have to agree with most of the other reviews. This candle smelled nice in the store -- I thought it would be a great way to bring a little freshness into my house. I've had the candle lit for almost 6 hours now and the only way I can even tell it is scented is if I put my nose right into it. Very disappointed that the scent doesn't carry past the wick.

Fresh, and subtle, good for apartments
Please never discontinue this candle! I find most Yankee Candles to be so strong that I can only burn them for a short amount of time, but this candle made for a lovely, long evening that filled our apartment (~900 sq ft) with a very light, natural floral smell that smelled more like outdoors than flowers. It's nice to be able to leave it lit without it making me sneeze or overpowering the place. Folks are complaining because it's not strong enough, but it's so nice to have light options. This isn't a candle for covering bad odors or scenting a very large house, but it's a wonderful scent.

Wish I Could Smell This
I liked the scent of this candle when it was cold. When I burned this candle, however, I couldn't smell it. I even burned two Summer Wish candles at the same time and I still couldn't smell this candle. Given how I liked the smell of this candle cold, I had expected that this would smell just as good burning. Unfortunately for me, the wish I had for this candle just didn't come true.
