Tahitian Tiaré Flower
WHY SO MANY UNSCENTED CANDLES?? :(
I was soooo looking forward to receiving TAHITIAN TIARÉ FLOWER! It was the only candle that I remember from my only brief visit to an actual Yankee Store that really grabbed my attention as soon as I smelled it. That hasn't been that long ago either --it was last summer and I really fell in love w/ that wonderful fragrance....so where did it go? Seriously this candle was the most UNSCENTED candle I've purchased from Yankee yet and I am almost sick about it. I know for a fact this is supposed to be a wonderful sweet floral and most reviewers I've read support this. I buy at least 2-4 candles per month and at $27 each I really expect more as anyone ought to at that price. So disappointing! No smell cold or lit.

This candle is hands down my favorite scent that Yankee has ever presented us with. The scent is light and clean with a hint of floral. I burn it for every occasion and it has become the scent for my home.
I heard that this candle was being retired and am devastated to say the least. I have stocked up and I am hoping that this was just a rumor. I haven't found a scent I love this much since Sunwashed Linen, which was also retired.
This scent meshes well with any decor and lingers in the room even after the candle has been extinguished. I suggest this to anyone who is looking for a scent that is light but at the same time fragrent. A+.

I have purchased many large jars, tarts, and scent plugs in this fragrance and have been delighted with all of them. I anticipated this one might be "Retired". I certainly hope not. The fragance is soft, not overpowering but you certainly know it's there. I also like "Wedding Day" - another soft, soothing floral fragance.
I have recently started using the jar lids and they make a big difference in how consistently the wax melts. Before, some candles "tunneled" after a couple of hours while others seemed ok. The jar lids eliminate my concern that the candle will burn as it should.

Nice summer fragrance
I liked this product because it has a light summer fragrance. Not a heavy scent. Filled the room with nice scent and lasted for hours while we entertained but was not so overpowering that it was obnoxious.

Smells like very strong perfume
After reading the other reviews, I guess I am in the minority since I find this fragrance to smell like too strong floral perfume - and that's on a cold sniff. I received this as a gift from a friend who knows that I am a Y.C. enthusiast. (Another friend who has seasonal allergies sneezed when she took one sniff of this candle.) I dared not to light it since it was overpoweringly strong unlit. I was pleased that a Y.C. retail store allowed me to exchange this fragrance for one of my all time favorite floral candles from Y.C. - Fresh Cut Roses!

If you like flowery scents, this one is one of the best I have ever purchased. I am so sorry that you are discontinuing it. It's just so different from the others. One of a kind.

Sad This one is retiring
I quickly ordered this candle when it came up on the retiring list. Its fresh, has a nice floral smell that permeates the whole house after an hour of burning.

The BEST floral candle EVER
I love this candle and can't believe that it is being retired. I am clearing gonna have to go into hoarders mode and stock up. This scent reminds me of my Grandma's perfume and I mean that is the BEST way possible. It has that sweet floral scent with slight hint of powder , it is another that everyone asks what is making my house smell so yummy.
