Doesn't smell like the real thing
There's nothing I love more than the scent of gardenia, but unfortunately this doesn't smell much like a real gardenia bush. There were some outside my grandma's house and it's one of my favorite smells so I was hoping for something that would smell the same and make me feel nostalgic...but real gardenias smell much more sweet and are much stronger than this candle version. Oh well. I exchanged it for the lilac candle which does smell exactly like real lilacs. It's always hit-and-miss for the floral scents for some reason. I hope they come out with a better gardenia but that's unlikely, haha.

STRONG FLORAL SCENT
I generally like strong scents when it comes to candles. I was not disappointed with this one. This candle has a strong gardenia aroma that is evident almost as soon as it's lit. What I like about this 2 wick tumbler is 1) I can smell it and 2) this particular candle doesn't seem to burn as fast as others. So, if you're looking for a strong gardenia scent, this is the candle for you!

I just can't get to love some other ones one of my favorites smells. Feels like I got flowers in the house.

I return the candle as soon as I got it! I bought this online and it was not what I expected..

None Better Than Yankee Candles
Yankee Candles are the only ones I buy, smelll lasts until the candles burn out. This is my favorite since my Mom had a huge gardenia plant on her front porch and everytime I walked up it always smelled so good. I'm sad it's going to be retired :(

surprisingly very unhappy with this scent
I ordered a couple tarts and votive's of this scent and was very surprised to find it gave me a migraine along with making my allergies suddenly act up... I only burned 1 votive and 1 tart at the same time and though the scent did fill up a large open living room it gave me an explosive migraine shortly there after... I love the scent of gardenia and never had a problem with it before now be it in other candles or perfumes .... Sorry to say the other candles and tarts were a waste of money as they will not be used in my house... If you are prone to migraines this is one scent I say beware of, thankfully over many many years there are but a few of Yankee Candle scents I have tried that caused a migraine...

Love Yankee Candles. Well love almost all of them. I recently purchased the orgional Gardina from Yankee during there year end clearence sale and it had little to no scent at all. I assumed then it was just an old candle then I saw that Yankee has a "new: Gardina candle and much to my disapointment it has almost all little aroma as the first. I will end by saying Yankee still has the best candles ever.

Best thing about yankee candles is they burn evenly all the way to the bottom. Worth the money & one of the best candles to fill the entire room with its fragrance.
