Makes me Think of Purple Kool-Aid!
This scent first reminded me of purple Kool-Aid. It also reminded me of grape juice. But, obviously, it made me think of wine, too.
I've owned this candle in numerous forms from small tumbler, small jar, large jar, votive, etc. Even the votive has an excellent throw and, once enough wax pool builds up, it can fragrance the whole first floor of my house. That means you can count on the larger candles to do an even better job.
Haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like this fragrance.

I bought this small jar after enjoying a votive of it. It has a true grape smell, makes me think of grape soda. I think it smells wonderful and has a really great throw when burning. A delightful choice for anytime, plus I love the color.

This candle smelled really great. I'm usually not a fan of scents like fruits but this seemed different and I wanted to try it out. It's a bit expensive for a 3.7oz candle but Yankee Candle has the best candles around. It has a very good throw and I enjoyed using it!

Strong but nice smell
The strong grape smell is quite nice. A bit heavy in the atmosphere department. Diffuses well and the smell lingers for a good while. I don't need to burn this for long. It would be good with appetizers, like wine and cheese.

Smells a tad grape Popsicle-y.
Although I do love this candle, it smells a tad like a grape popsicle. Fortunately it mostly smells like grapes ... like being in a vineyard. :).

My favorite Yankee scent
I've been buying the large Vineyard jar to use in my kitchen for several years; it has the most realistic scent of any of their candles. There are dozens of vineyards around Erie, PA and this candle smells just like it does there when the grapes are harvested! Even my husband, who is oblivious to such things, comments on how nice it makes the whole house smell. He even takes Vineyard jars to his office and uses a warmer to release the scent as burning candles is not permitted. It would be great if Yankee could expand Vineyard into their other non-burning lines such as the air freshener, plug-ins, etc.
The reason I rated it lower in the 'quality' category is it leaves a lot of carbon deposit on the jar topper after being blown out. I hope they can find a way to make the candle burn a little more cleanly. I'd use the jar warmer with it, but it doesn't release enough scent to permeate the whole house like it does when I burn it. Other than that minor issue I highly recommend this fragrance!

Vineyard is a nice scent to burn when entertaining guests.
