Yankee Candle® Golden Sands™ Tarts® Wax Potpourri
Very soothing, warm fragrance
This is another all-time favorite of mine. When I first sniffed it at the Yankee Candle store I thought it was too light and non-descript for my taste. I bought a couple to try and put a tart in a small powder room. It was a surprise, a wonderful scent and I bought many more. It is soft and evokes a feeling of relaxation. It is a slightly sweet but warm scent like a soft, fresh breeze carrying the scent of an orange flower. The sandalwood and Tonka bean are a wonderful balance. Golden Sands is the scent of a Tahitian beach as the sun sets on a warm, relaxing afternoon.. Compliments to your staff for creating this captivating fragrance. Some reviewers stated the throw was "too strong" but I feel it could be much stronger and would not be overwhelming. It lightly scents the small powder room. Ideally, if it had a stronger throw I would love to use it in a larger area and that the scent would be noticeable. This scent is much too wonderful to discontinue. Hopefully you will make the throw stronger so I can enjoy the scent outside of the powder room.

I only buy tarts to try them out first. This one ended up being way too strong for me. It smells amazing, its warm and makes me want to go to the beach! Like I said its strong, throws very well and you won't be disappointed if you want that.

Too much for me
The scent itself is not bad, just too heavy and strong for my taste, especially in a small room. It does smell rich and luxurious, I just prefer fresher airier scents.

Golden Sands is a great fragrance. I feel bad that I waited this long to try it. I've been missing out on all those times when I could have used this to brighten my day. Golden Sands is a tough scent to describe. Warmth is the first word that comes to mind. It is definitely a warm scent. The sandalwood is probably the strongest scent and makes this aroma relaxing and soothing. Tonka beans have a vanilla like scent to them, except they have spicy, fruity, and sweet notes to them. So think vanilla with notes of cinnamon and honey. And last the scent I can smell is the orange flower which gives this enveloping warm scent a light, fresh floral quality which is perfect. It really is a perfect combination. I have had the tart going all day and it is still strong.
