"Seasoned by the elements. . . this modern blend of vetiver, salt air and driftwood creates an intriguing fragrance" this candle does smell like the beach, it's not a favourite as it isn't very strong i'm into the more foody smelling candles but it's nice for sunny summery day.
I can't believe how expensive Yankee is when some of their candles are like scratch and sniff. And that is if you are lucky. Beach wood has no throw like many others. Even if I have it right next to me in the tub with the bathroom door closed I cannot smell it. I have a smaller condo and I can't smell it. I can sort of smell it when I blow out the flame and the smoke...wait no that is just the smell of smoke. Pass on this one. Sad that I was ripped off.
