Sun & Sand®
Not a fan
This smelled gross to me, like cheap suntan lotion. It made me have a headache. Very plastic-y and chemical-scented.

One of my favorites
This is one of my favorite summertime fragrances. I'm 68 years old and when I put this tart in my warmer my mind remembers my teenage years like yesterday. This reminds me of days at our town swimming pool and the smells of the different suntan lotions we used. Delicious smells-sweet memories.

Loved this sent that made my home seem like a day at the beach!
I love this sent! When I lived in Hawaii, I would put the car AC clips into my AC in my house and it was So Wonderful! It was a nice way to unwind from a day at the beach or for the rainy days making it like I where at the beach!

Love the scent
As we get older, we tend to think back on our childhood to fonder memories. When you came out with Sun and Sand, it reminded me so much of a suntan lotion from years ago. Though I don't get out in the sun much and didn't then, I loved the smell and put it on anyway. Today, with YK's Sun and Sand, all I have to do is turn on my electric tart burner. I'm forgetful and don't trust myself with open flame, so the tart burner is perfect for me. If I leave the house and forget to turn it off, I don't worry about it.

That's what Sun & Sand smells like to me. Suntan lotion. I feel need to reapply some Banana Boat. I think go without.

Just doesn't smell like Sun & Sand when melted
My favorite Yankee candle right now is Sun & Sand - just smells so much like the beach - calm and soothing. I decided to try the wax tarts assuming they would smell the same when melted but they do not. When you open the package the smell is right but when melted they give off this musky smell and not at all like the candle. I bought 12 of them and have tried different ones thinking maybe the first couple were just off but I'm on my 4th one now and it's just not even close to the candle.

I hear the beach calling
It really does smell like the beach. It brings me back to the days where I had time to spare and hang out at the beach. I miss those days but this fragrance does bring me back to good times. Makes the house smell like suntan lotion-super!!

The Meaning of Beach
If there exists a candle in the YC collection that more truly defines the word beach, I have yet to discover it.The fact that it has been a favorite for so long attests to its vivid re-creation of hot sun and sand with that pervasive overlay of slathered-on suntan lotion. Altogether a classic, but for me personally so potent in fragrance that I have to use it in larger spaces or limit the burn time.
