Like a subtle calmness from a seaside shore
I have purchased Yankee Candles' products over the years and I find them both resourceful and delightful for their seasonal scents and natural ingredients. I especially enjoy the summer solistice and I was looking for a fragrant candle that evokes all the picturesque scenes of seashores and hot unsettled breezes. One of those is of course Sun & Sand. I have it at home and while it burns, it reminds me dearly of my early days at the beach in the 1960's. I recently have purchased Turquoise Sky and again while it burns, in minutes be prepared to experience an alluring sense of walking on a beach underneath a calm summer sunset that would even captivate both the inner soul and mind. Such a pleasant feeling this candle offers that not only it embraces an entire room with its wonderful fragrance, it conforts your senses with feelings of spiritual healing. It contains touches of sea grass musk and salty sea air ingredients. The strength of this candle is not a bit overpowering and it never goes weak and lasts for several months. It's a perfect addition (with Sun & Sand) because it blends so right and true with the summer season. I'm delighted with this recent purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in a seasonal candle. PS : The label on the jar gets a thumb up :)

This reminds me of Ocean Star, which I happened to fall in love with this season. The wax pool is such a gorgeous marine blue, and the scent is a very relaxing combination of a salty sea air mixed with fresh air. Wonderful for any room in the house but I love it in the bedroom for relaxation. Scent throw is good and fills my bedroom without being overpowering.

Nice, but a bit overpowering.
I like this candle, but for me it is a bit overpowering. I like a strong scent, but this one is too much. I think it has a bit too much "sweet" for me. I cannot burn it for hours. i much prefer Ocean Star.

This candle reminds me of days spent on the beach. Clean and fresh with a salt air mist mingled in somewhere too. Very good throw and does not disappoint. I love the rich blue color. Great fragrance for a large space. One of my faves.

Love the scent, but my head is killing me!
I recently read through other reviews on this fragrance to see if anyone else got headaches from this particular scent. I'm not typically sensitive to scents, but for some reason I can't physically stand this one without getting a migraine.
The fragrance itself seems strong (to me), which I think travels relatively far. My roommate mentioned it smelling nice today, but said it was very perfumey...? It reminds me of a spa!

For Yankee shoppers who remember the fragrance 'Heather' this smells very close. Soothing fragrance, soft, not overwhelming, good for odors or as a nice background fragrance. This one goes up towards the top of my favorite fragrances. Highly recommend. Beautiful deep sky blue color when illuminated.

I cannot believe I did not buy this last year when it came out. I bought a few large jars this year along with the wonderful Plug ins they finally came out with. This scent is amazing with a wonderful throw and is excellent for an open floor plan. I have been buying Yankee candles for 20 years and have over 40 large jars in my collection and plan to stock up on more jars of this Turquoise Sky and the tarts as well. I already have quite the collection of Turquoise Sky products but it really is a clean wonderful indescribable scent that we cannot get enough of. Yankee did an excellent job with this scent and it goes fast in my local store. I am very happy to have stocked up on this scent and it is as wonderful as the new Ocean Star which I love, love, love! Thanks Yankee for a scent we can smell throughout the home with just one jar lit! Excellent quality, excellent clean burn and just simply amazing!

good throw, nice scent.....
tried this a few days ago, nice scent, good throw, I find it like a soap scent, very clean smelling. I was impressed, and I loved that the scent lingered after I blew it out. I think Ill save this candle for cleaning days :)
