This is a review of the Yankee Candle Beanswax candles rather than any one particular scent. I decided to try them out because they were on sale and I like soy candles. Pros: The smell is pleasant, Yankee Candle has a huge variety of scents to choose from. Soy candles are supposed to be more eco-friendly. Cons: it doesn't have a lingering effect or a really strong smell. Once you blow it out, the scent is gone. I have a small apartment and can't smell anything outside the room where the candle is burning. If you're looking for something with a stronger, longer lasting scent I recommend the Pacifica brand instead.

Two complaints: weak, practically not existant throw & expensive price. I purchased this in the medium jar and I barely smell it. 1 tart from AZW will blow this bigger candle away in term of throw & scent. Throw just too weak for what I paid. Green glass container is beautiful & it burns clean. I will only purchase AZW or SwanCreek for soy candles & tarts that are stronger & less pricey.

This smells heavenly. It's the perfect blend of white cake and lots of frosting. I have this in the large double wick version, and the burn is great. There's no soot that Yankee is famous for. It burns cleanly and evenly, and the scent throw is amazing. I could smell this just a few minutes after lighting it. The packaging is really cute with little environmental tips on the jar and a wooden lid. I really think this is a huge improvement over other Yankee products, and I really hope they keep this line around and keep expanding it.
