Can't say enough about how spot-on these fragrances are.
My wife got a few at Christmas, and I got hooked...

Nice scent itself, but very weak
I really liked this fragrance (Golden sand), but the strength of the votive candle was just too weak. Before I used to buy Yankee candles a lot, and they smelled very strongly even if they were not lit! Now I put the votive right next to me and could smell nothing! Kind of disappointed with votive candles... I hope the jars smell as strong as before.
The same thing happened to the other candles i purchased (they were all votive samplers). Fragrances were barely noticeable, but very nice though...

Not Quite The Perfect Match
While I usually like YC's stronger scents with lots of throw, this time I was looking for a softer, lighter scent (but with decent throw) that was going to be used exclusively for relaxation purposes.
After sampling several fragrances during a YC visit a couple of weeks ago, I finally decided to get a few of these votives as I really liked the initial "cold sniff" of what I interpreted as a beautiful, soft scent reminiscent of powder and hints of vanilla--Perfect! The lovely peach color was like "icing on the cake."
Well, I lit my first votive a few nights ago with great anticipation, but after at least an hour or two, unfortunately I could hardly smell the fragrance from a short distance away, and when I came closer, the faint fragrance I did smell was indeed "too sweet" as another reviewer stated and it smelled almost "candy-like" to me, not at all like the mostly powdery with vanilla hint I was anticipating; disappointing, but fortunately I exchanged the remaining votives today.
To most (as based upon the reviews) this scent is a winner, but for me, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree.

A little too sweet
This was a little more dessert like than I expected. Definitely pleasant, just not what I was looking for.

This votive has a light/medium throw to it. As someone who's looking for a more widely dispersed scent, I wasn't impressed. Golden Sands is pleasant, definitely a "warm" scent - the orange and vanilla were the predominant notes for me. What wax didn't melt with the votive I put in my tart burner and hoped for a stronger scent (which I've found works for other votives I want to smell more of). Nope, not this one. It's a good candle, just not of YC's best IMO. I'd much sooner go for Sun and Sand (beachy) or Pink Sands (sweet).

Like a less sweet pink sands, this is a moderate strength scent with a warmer tone. It's nice, not my favorite but I enjoyed it.

The scent infuses the house and puts a smile on your face.
