Used to be my favorite, hands down! But something changed.....
Golden Sands was the ideal intoxicating scent you have ever made when it first was manufactured. I still have half a candle from my first order of it, and it still has the best throw and out of this worldly pleasing scent, to me. Since then, the candles have been coming to my door with no scent/no throw and with large areas of white in the large jar, and a very obvious color change from nectarine color to light apricot. I exchanged all but one tumbler( I had bought about six)
I beg of you Yankee Candle, to return to the way it was first sold &made( the candles are different) and bring back original Golden Sands to your always available lineup. Please!!! :-)))
I've also noticed I get better scented candles when I buy in store. Especially the newest one! Apple Spice! Stock up!
Fortunately customer service has been wonderful, excellent, with exchanging the no scent candles for me, but alas, golden sands is not available in jar with marbling nor oil as another customer suggested we look for in the store to get a great scent. My heart and love of Golden Sands is broken as I think I was told it is not being manufactured anymore. I think maybe they didn't stick to their highest standards for GS. The tumblers left are making the used wax turn brown! Sorry for this negative review but I felt strongly enough about this issue. Maybe it will come back in a very pleasing scent/ throw. Pretty please? I have MANY candles I rotate , I have illumalids etc. etc. I know the reasons why a candle may not "seem" to have the same scent/ throw, and none of them apply.
I give the first GS 5 stars with excellent throw , and a memorable, intoxicating lovely fragrance.

My kids got this scent for me on Mother's Day and I absolutely love it. It makes the entire house smell wonderful and always relaxes me. Makes me remember our vacations on the beach.

This is my new favorite! I usually buy Yankee candles by season, but Golden Sands is perfect for any time of year. It is a soft, sweet scent. My boyfriend likes this one, and even lights it when I am not home!

Not what I expected!
I bought this a few months ago as it was described as being along the same fragrance as pink sands which I like, this one isn't anything like pink sands & does take some getting used to in fact I keep trying a little sniff to see whether it's growing on me. Personally I wouldn't purchase again

This is my favorite candle! It is sweet without being too cloying, throws off scent to warm your home and is such a beautiful color. It is very relaxing and even though I have a "few" extras saved, I tend to save it for special occasions!
