This reminded me of a manly smell, it has a mans cologne smell to it. I would think this could be used in a manly cave .

A new favorite
With the large jar "Storm Watch" candles so difficult to find where I live, I purchased this candle up at a local store after it passed the "sniff test". I am very pleased with the fragrance. It's definitely woodsy with a fresh clean air undertone. Not at all overwhelming, but a pleasant, calming scent with a good throw. I'm so glad the new fall line up includes this one.

Mild and musky
I like this new fragrance because it is a little musky but also mild. It is one I burn when doing yoga. I have 12 others that I purchased from Yankee Candle so that I have different fragrances for different days.

Excellent new fragrance. Not too strong, but makes your home smell great.

Like a walk in a forest
Silver Birch does remind of a walk in a forest. It has a calming affect, and is, for me, particularly good to burn on rainy days.

This was recommended to me when I was recently shopping since I love outdoor but not overpowering scents (Autumn Leaves). It is great my husband loves it and it complements the Autumn leaves scent as well. I also just love the color and picture on the candle that does make a difference to me.

Great, new fall scent
I love fall, and winter and the Yankee Candle scents that go with it. For fall, I tend to stick to the sweeter smells like Pumpkin Buttercream, or other sweet, pumpkin scents. I also love the Christmas scents that have anything to do with trees- I am a sucker for a good pine smell.
That being said- I am kind of picky when I light certain candles.. I would not light a pumpkin buttercream in December, (I know, a little neurotic lol). I thought that silver birch would be more in a winter lineup for me. I was very, happily surprised. When I smelled this candle, I knew I wanted it. It has a very outdoorsy, fresh, crisp smell to it, but it also has very sweet undertones.
The candle really creates a category of its own. The crispness that comes from the candle makes your home feel fresh while the subtle sweetness makes it feel inviting.
The only reason I am not giving this candle a full 5 stars is because I tend to like my candles very strong. I have vaulted ceilings and I need scents to travel throughout my home. I feel this candle would go great in a more closed off living space, like a front room, entryway, or bedroom. It is a very nice scent though, and definitely worth the buy. I purchased in tarts too, which I love!

I just got my Yankee Candle delivery today and as soon as I opened the box I could smell the candle. I set it on my desk and unopened I could smell it. I thought it might be too strong but the throw is amazing, the smell is amazing. It just makes me long for Autumn and cozy sweaters. The fragrance is spicy like an excellent men's cologne but after it burns for a bit you just smell a hint of wood smoke and decaying leaves that are the essence of Autumn. I don't care if it doesn't smell like a silver birch (I don't even think the trees have a smell) but I love the name and the picture on the jar. It makes me calm and happy and sets a peaceful mood in the house. I can smell it clearly in two rooms but it is not overpowering in the least. It is a perfect candle for company or just with some good music and watching the sun shine on the changing leaves.
