Star Fruit & Orange
Fresh squeezed oranges
I agree with JayKay0811's review that this candle smells wonderfully like a juice store! I had been looking for a citrus candle without added floral or soapy notes, and this is it -- almost pure sweet oranges, with a slight, mellow note of starfruit (a sort of apple or pear scent). I cannot detect the pink hibiscus.
Throw is medium; I wish it were a big stronger. While I love it, I feel it would be even better with a hint of a spice like clove (often in recipes for oranges or starfruit), or perhaps a touch of pineapple. Sometimes I burn this candle with Pineapple Paradise, and they are amazing together.
Maintains its bright golden-orange color; some light-colored Yankee candles develop a layer of tan wax on top after burning, but this one does not!

No throw at all.
On cold sniff, i love this candle. It is sweet, fruity, and creamy. The only problem is, the throw when lit is so light that I sometimes forget it is even there. I wonder to myself why I forgot to light a candle that day and realize that I already have. I can barely smell anything when I am right on top of it. To be fair, this may have been due to the fact that during shipping, a lot of the oil leaked from this candle and even ate through the styrofoam. However, I have had others tell me their candle had no throw either so I am not sure it would have mattered much. Dissapointed in this candle since the reviews seemed so favorable.

A Perfect Summer Fragrance
This fragrance is perfect for summer. It is light and sweet. It makes my mouth water! And it's perfect for your outdoor parties. I first found it in Pennsylvania and it took some years to come to stores in NJ and online, and I'm glad it did!!! The large jars are your best value!!! The smaller jars are not worth the price, even on sale. These are great when you can buy one/get one free!

What made me purchase this candle was the review that said it smells like walking into a smoothie shop. It does smell exactly like that! It's sweet without being sickening. It's citrusy, bright, crisp, smooth, refreshing. It's not a super strong throw, but it fills my small kichen beautifully. If I go outside and come back in I get a perfect amount of "oh, that smells good". Nice, fresh background smell, not "wow, that's a strong candle!". After burning my first one for several hours I went back online to purchase a couple more during the SAS. I have probably at least 100 yankee candles (I don't even want to know the exact number anymore and neither does my husband!) This one has earned a favorite status meaning I have multiples in case they never come back. I will probably never burn all of them in my lifetime since I just keep buying more, but I just had to have several Starfruit & orange because I enjoy it so much!

Very weak throw
I purchased this because it had such great reviews and I wanted a juicy, fruity scent for my home for summer.
This fragrance is nice. Juicy, citrusy, and summery just like I wanted. It's quite light even when you smell it in the jar, but when you burn it it's even lighter!
After burning it for 6 hours straight, I can smell it only if I'm standing right next to it. Anywhere else in the room you wouldn't even know it's burning!
It is burning well though, even wax pools and steady flame.
Would not repurchase or recommend though as this is does not scent my home which is the reason I purchased it. Yankee Candle as a whole is still a win for me, out of many candles this is the first that has not done what I wanted it to.

not fragrant enough
This candle had an extremely mild soft scent....could really only smell it when holding it up to your nose to sniff it. I did return it to the store without problems. It seems that the two wick tumblers have a stronger throw for me.

Sweet Fruit Smell!
This candle has a light-medium scent and a decent throw. The smell reminds me of orange/pineapple soft serve.. yum! I only wish the scent was a little stronger.

This is my first Yankee Candle purchase and I am pleased.
The best way I can describe it is...a big bowl of creamy orange sherbert melted by the warm sun.
It's not too strong but just strong enough.
I totally see it as a summer scent but also as something I'd burn during the winter months. Something to pick up your spirits during the gloomy days and give you that kick of energy.
