I picked out a mixture of different Samplers (in pairs) as a house warming gift for my boyfriend's new apartment. I knew he loved fruity scents, and he absolutely loved the Macintosh votives. They were not overpowering, not overly sweet. They were perfect and filled the living room and kitchen wonderfully. Definitely will be picking up more.

This has an extremely faint smell. Why am I not smelling it despite what has been said in the other reviews?

The perfect apple scent
This one is as real as it gets. It smells EXACTLY like a Macintosh apple. I love that it has no added sugar or spice notes. Just pure simple apple. Excellent aroma for autumn. Also, try the fragrance mixology triple votive holder with 2 of these and 1 Salted Caramel. To die for caramel apple scent!

Wonderful apple scent
Had this one burning recently & just loved the fragrance. Definitely will purchase again in future.

Nice Apple Scent, BUT...
This MacIntosh votive no doubt has a wonderful fresh apple scent unlit, but when lit, while throw smells nice it is very subtle to me. Had it burning in a small room for an adequate amount of time recently and it just didn't permeate the room quite to my satisfaction.
Given an "extra boost" of throw however, this candle would be the very epitome of THE ideal fresh apple scented candle, in my opinion. A good scent that could stand to be better, stronger.

Like slicing an apple...
This scent is as pure and real as it gets. I enjoy burning this in the Fall and I can smell it throughout my home.

One Of My Favorites
Macintosh was one of the first candles I ever purchased from YC and I've been a fan ever since. I like that there is no variance in this scent; i.e. additional spices, etc. so it burns true to its name; and it carries throughtout the house. It has a very nostalgic ring to it. Yesterday I burned 2 large jars of Macintosh and one large jar of the new Candied Apple and through in some Autumn Leaves in the melter/warmers. This mix is going to be my "go to" scents for fall and probably through winter.
