Love it, love it, love it
My fall favorite is Vanilla Chi, this is an incredible summer "sequel" to that....I burn the large candles and have 3 melt pots with the same tarts. The house smells like an island retreat!!!!
It's fragrant but not overbearing.

This candle has no throw
I really was very excited to try Paradise Spice. It smelled so promising in the store. Creamy Vanilla and Banana are two of my favorite scents. Should have been a delightful combination. I was wrong, very wrong. Once lit, I patiently waited for the scent to fill our average sized family room. It never happened. Even standing 1 foot from the candle, I simply could not smell it.
I have been loyal to YC for many years and this was my first true disappointment.

Be careful smelling this one because you will burn your nostrils! :)
Trying to inject some humor here because I really dislike having to write a negative review on such a lovely scent. And, the scent IS lovely when you take a whiff from the jar...like a banana/pineapple/coconut colada...just heavenly and tropical. Alas, upon lighting and waiting hours and hours, there was just NO THROW. We could not smell this candle unless we stuck our nose over the jar and even then, the scent was just not there.
I really wanted this one to be a winner because I love fruity, sweet, tropical scents in the summer. Maybe I got one from a bad batch because other reviewers talk about it being stronger than what I experienced. This, for me, was one of the weakest smelling candles I've ever experienced from YC.

Banana smoothie indeed!
I completely agree with the reviewer below. This candle smells like an authentic banana smoothie with a touch of pineapple and orange to my nose. The creaminess is so real that I can almost taste it!

This is one of my favorite scents for Spring & Summer months. We have high ceilings in our living room and you can definitely smell this candle when burning and I only burn 1 tumbler at a time.
To me it reminds me of a banana smoothie. It has spice notes in this candle but to me my nose doesn't pick up on much spice notes at all. To me it's very subtle. It's a yummy creamy banana scent & I just LOVE it!

Smells nice up close...but hardly has any throw. I can not smell this at all standing a foot away, even with a good half-inch wax pool. Maybe I got a dud.

I LOVE Yankee candles. Have tried so many wonderful candles and never been disappointed until this candle. Very little fragrance to almost nothing
once opened and burning!!!!!!!

Lovely tropical scent
I recently picked up Paradise Spice at the Yankee Candle Store and I am quite happy with the choice I made. The candle smells of pineapple and banana and maybe a hint of vanilla. I have been burning it non-stop since I purchased it. The scent carries well and is so pleasant to walk into the room where it is burning if you have been out of it for a while. I will most definitely be buying Paradise Spice again.
