Yankee Candle® Summer Wish™ Large Classic Candle Jar
Beautiful scent, non existent burning
I'm really disappointed by this candle. As many other mentioned, it smells lovely in the jar, almost like a floral pear. Unfortunately, I tried burning it two times, achieving a full wax pool each time over a couple hours. I burned it in my room, as well as in the bathroom. Both times I could really only smell it if I put my face right over the flame. I thought maybe I had just adjusted to the scent, but I still couldn't smell it upon leaving the room and returning.
In conclusion, lovely smell, I just can't actually smell it when burning. Will be returning for hopefully a better scent.

exceeded my expectations
When this candle came out last year, I just passed it up. But when I smelled it I was in heaven. It definitely reminds.you of those summer days as a kid. The picture on the jar is beautiful too.

Summer Wish Is Exceptionally Fresh, Clean & Good Throw
I ordered this without smelling and was a little cautious because of reviews. I have to say I love this candles clean outdoor scent with a very very mild floral scent added that actually makes me feel I'm outdoors. It also has a good throw. I will repurchase many. I am very surprised this doesn't have more as well as better reviews but each nose knows best. I am very very picky and love this. Consider trying as it's returnable right!

Pay more, get less...
This large jar candle was burning in my 6' x 9' tiny bathroom for hours...the only thing it gave off was a flicker of light! I also have a very sensitive nose and to say this is a "lighter scented candle" is just insulting. Whatever happened to "America's Strongest Scented Candle"??? I don't think Yankee can make that claim anymore. I have a HUGE collection of large jar Yankees, as I have a candle burning whenever I am home. However, I think I've finally had enough of giving my hard earned money to this corporation and not getting much in return. Why don't you just admit that you changed the formula on all your candles...we keep paying more, while you give less.

No smell when burning.
Don't waste your money. You can not smell this candle at all, and I have a sensitive nose!

Summer Wish #1
I hope Yankee brings this lovely fragrance back.
Not strong enough to notice a candle is burning but fragrant enough to notice a calming scent in the air. I will recommend this for anyone who does not like food fragrances or strong fragrances in their house.

I have to agree with some of the other commenters: this candle smells lovely in store, but it puts off no scent AT ALL when it is burned. I have it in a small bathroom but there is still no detectable scent. This is so unfortunate because like I said, I loved the scent in the store! I just wish that the fragrance actually translated over when burning the candle.
