THE best scent of ALL of Yankees candles!!
I have to honestly say that True Rose IS THE best scent that Yankee has ( meant those caps btw ) & I assure you I have tried probably 90-95% of ALL of their scents in my lifetime!! Born & raised near the Deerfield store ( I know... lucky meeee!!) so I'm serious when I say I've tried mostly all! Sadly I've moved South but happily can continue to order on-line -;) just as easily!
Bought this scent for a friend as a "thank-you" gift because he ( yes HE ) said he LOVED the scent of roses ( Yeah I thought that strange as well but hey to each their own right) so I figured I'd buy one for myself since I'm not a huge floral lover when it comes to scents!
Boy was I wrong!! I was head over heels for the newer Summer Scoop but after the first time using True Rose I'm head over heels in love!! And what is the best is it smells as strong from the very first time you burn it right to the very end.... I'll say it again... THE VERY END!!! Not all scents stay strong... True Rose DOES!!! Just buy a votive if you don't believe me!!
I'm one that will try any fragrance once... From Movie Night (the popcorn smelling one... btw... that one helped sell my home -;)... It really did!! ) to the new bacon one... like I said... Have tried mostly ALL of Yankees candles... Been a customer ( loyal customer ) for decades!! So if you want a candle that not only smells like a real rose but that also LASTS from start to finish... Look no further... THIS IS THE ONE!!

True Rose name says it all!
This candle smells just like its name...True Rose! It is one of my favorite Yankee Candles. Fresh Cut Roses is my next best followed by Roses of Cliffwalk. Definitely try this candle. You won't be let down. The throw is strong which is what I love the most of the candle...well, the smell is wonderful. I've had 3 sinus surgeries and it takes a candle with a strong throw and this one has never let me down!!

True Rose is a True Rose
Smells just like red roses. Not too strong not too faint of smell. Just a pleasant fragrance that fills the home nice with a smell of freshly bloomed roses.
Why is this not available in the room spray and/or fragrance spheres?

Waste of $30
Smells great when you open it but no smell while burning. I saw this at a Cracker Barrell last christmas and finally got the money to buy a large one. What a horrible let down!

Smells like a bouquet of roses
Great fragrance. Very good throw. It fills my living room, dining room combination with high ceilings.
This is like a romantic gift of roses any day you want one.

Doesn't Compare to Fresh Cut Roses
When I visited Yankee Candle to purchase Fresh Cut Roses, I was told it was no longer available in the store, but could be purchased online. It was suggested that I try True Rose as an alternative. In the store, it smelled wonderful. However, I have been burning it at home for over a week now, and unless I am standing right over it, I cannot smell it at all. Normally, the fragrance from a Yankee Candle will fill my home. Not the case with this scent. :(

Smelled so good in the store...but
I love, love, love Yankee Candles but this one just doesn't live up to the quality I am used to from Yankee. I saw this in store and just couldn't resist seeing what it smelled like. It was amazing, it smelled exactly like a bouquet of fresh roses. After burning for almost two hours it produced only a very scant fragrance. I have never had this experience with a Yankee candle like that before, so I thought I would try it for a few hours the next day, same scant smell. I guess it could be a dud with all the other great reviews.

This was bought as a valentines gift for me. The unlit smell was very strong and smells exactly like fresh roses. The lit smell is exactly the same and strong but not too overpowering. Beautiful scent, would definitely buy again.
