Wonderful scent but I prefer non-crackling candles
I think the scent of this candle is wonderful. For those of you who are bakers, it smells just like almond extract, one of my favorite flavorings. It burns well and requires minimal trimming. My only complaint is that, because I burn candles when reading or working at home, I find the crackling sound to be a distraction. I wish the original non-crackling pure radiance candles were still available.

Radiance Candle had a flaw..
About a year ago I bought a Radiance Candle. I loved that the wick crackled as it burned and, as usual, the scent was exceptional. As the candle burned the wick seemed to fall over. Several times I had to pull it up out of the wax after extinguishing the flame. As the candle burned further down in the jar, the wick leaned over further, until it was leaning on the side of the glass. When the wax was still liquid I tried to right the wick with no luck. I would love to try this candle again, but I am very leary. I think this candle is a "love gone wrong". I am hoping that this problem can be fixed and I can again buy one knowing I can once again enjoy its awesome crackling feature.

Love the scent, but it burned too fast
I missed the almond cookie candle, so I tried this one. The scent is a masterpiece! It fills the house with a warm relaxing scent. It smells just like almond extract. The throw is very strong. My only complaint about the candle is that it burned very fast. The wax always pooled nice and even.

Love the Pure Radiance - Toasted Almond
Great candle line! So glad that it isn't temporary.
I have tried quite a few of the scents in the Pure Radiance - and Toasted Almond is one of my favorites.
It has a lasting scent, not overpowering but not soft - you can definitely smell it.
it reminds me of an Almond cookies baking, it's a soft sweet almond scent with a woody undertone.
And with the crackling noise - it's like enjoying that almond cookie right in front of a warm fireplace.

One of our favorites!
I have been looking for the Almond Cookie and was so disappointed when I found out it was discontinued. One of the associates pointed this one out and me and my family LOVE it! The smell is that of Almond Cookie but a little less sweeter. The crackling wick is an added bonus, but the smell is heavenly! I have bought many YC and this is one of my top 3 picks!

Disappointed, Not for Me
Like another reviewer, I sorely miss Almond Cookie. I expressed this to my local Yankee Candle store and they suggested I try this one which I immediately did. I burned it all day and all evening wanting to love it so much, but was very disappointed. It smelled great unlit. But it had a weak throw even after burning steady for many hours, and the aroma just did jot satisfy what I was looking for and miss. I will be returning it for an exchange.
