I ordered a few Yankee Candle votives for my room and was most excited to use this one. Roses are my favorite scent and always evoke great memories. I was burning this votive and noticed immediately how strong the fragrance was. Even my roommate noticed the scent and loved it. Although "Roses of Cliff Walk" is my favorite Yankee Candle rose scent, True Rose is a great for a modern alternative.

Spot on Scent
Even though I'm not a fan of flowers and floral to begin with, I found myself buying it because I've never come across a candle that captured a scent as well as this one has. I've lit it a couple times since I brought it home and am still amazed by how much it smells exactly like fresh roses. Well done Yankee Candle.

Red Roses Red Roses
Out of all the roses, I think a red rosé is the best smelling one. This candle truly smells like a red rosé. Very delightfully and a strong smooth scent. I have also burned with Fresh Cut Roses which smells really great together. You will enjoy this candle

Smells like a bouquet
I prefer fruits to florals usually but this scent smells like you stuck your nose into a bouquet that someone brought for you. It does smell like roses. I enjoy it but it's not an everyday scent for me.

Depends on what you consider "true rose"
I don't mind restating that Y.C.'s votive candles are a great way to try new fragrances before you commit to full size jars/tumblers. That being said, True Rose smells more like rose perfume #think eau de toilet# and less like actual roses. As a fragrance purist I am partial to Y.C.'s Fresh Cut Roses; the closest scent to actual roses that I have found anywhere. A lovely alternative is Y.C.'s now retired "Roses of Cliff Walk". Although I am glad I tried True Rose, Fresh Cut Roses remains one of my all time favorite Y.C. scents.

The most appealing Rose fragrance around
Soft rose fragrance but so enduring it can be smelled even when not burning. Perfect for bathroom or bedroom. I take clear wrapper off and set it on a plastic bottle cap and tuck it behind other room decor. I light it in a clear votive when I'm able to supervise the flame.

Smell is true to the name!
My mom's name is Rose, so this candle was perfect for her as a gift for Valetine's Day! She loved it!
