I was not a fan of this. The scent isn't too strong and it's not light, I'd say it's the standard intensity of other Yankee Candles. I was expecting this to smell like a sugary sweet vanilla, but it didn't. It smelled like a flat vanilla and not really dessert-like. I like sugary sweet scents like Buttercream, which is why I was disappointed in this. But you will like this if you are looking for a more plain vanilla scent.

This is my favorite candle! It has a strong scent and it's super sweet, which I love. It smells like sugary vanilla buttercream mixed with a light yellow cake batter scent. I love it! Better than Buttercream, Vanilla Cupcake, and the rest of the dessert line! If you like sugary sweet powerful scents like me, you will like this.
This candle is nice! It doesn't smell like ice cream to me at all. However, it does smell like cookies, like a buttery sugar cookie with some light vanilla in it. It's sweet but not too sweet (it's not sickly sweet).
I love super sweet dessert smelling candles. I found the scent sweet but not overly sweet. It does smell like buttercream, a vanilla scent with subtle sugar. I feel like there's one more scent in there but I can't figure it out.
Smells nice, but not very strong. It has a light sugar cookie smell which is soft and sweet. No frosting scent in it to me, but it's ok, just wish it was stronger.
I actually found this candle to not have a strong scent, I found it light and not really that sweet. I didn't think the vanilla in it was strong, I found it subtle and it's mixed with another scent that makes it not a sweet dessert-like scent. I think it's the orchid. I prefer sugary sweet scents which some would probably find too strong and sweet, so this candle wasn't great to me.
I have this in the large jar. I'm not a fan of chocolate scents because I find the cocoa scents of them to be not that sweet and sort of bitter. But this, this is a real chocolate scent and it's sweet, not bitter at all. It really smells like fresh chocolate fudge brownies. To me, it smells like a mixture of baked brownies and brownie batter. It's really a delicious scent. Also, I like strong candles, and this is a strong sweet chocolate scent. Some people told me the scent made them hungry!
I have this in the large jar. This scent power is moderate, not very strong. It's quite similar to Vanilla Cupcake but less sugary and not as strong (though I didn't find Vanilla Cupcake to be strong either). It has a soft sweet vanilla scent with a slight frosting scent mixed in.
The scent is nice but I didn't find it strong. I think I'm used to Yankee Candles stronger scents which is why I found this so light. It has a nice vanilla smell with just a hint of frosting. The company says there's hints of lemon in it, but I don't smell any. This scent is similar to Christmas Cupcake but slightly stronger.

This is the newest 2011 Angel perfume and it's not part of the Dream Angels line. This is supposed to smell like plum, violet, and amber. I was disappointed, it smells like a generic amber scented perfume. I was hoping to smell more plum, but I could smell mostly just light florals and amber. It's not bad, it's soft and sweet, just not my type of scent. It smells a little like Victoria's Secret other perfume called Dream Angels Forever, except Angel doesn't have that powder scent to it and it does have a very slight fruity scent in it. But I will say that the packaging is gorgeous, it's such a nice bottle and color.

This is meant to smell like strawberry, jasmine, and sandalwood. I definitely can smell the strawberry, but it isn't pleasant. To me, it should have a very fruity scent, but because it's mixed with jasmine and sandalwood, the fruitiness is subdued and it ends up smelling kind of odd and slightly like a bitter strawberry. I would have liked this scent more if it was more fruity and sweet like some of those cheaper scents in the Secret Garden line (which is now VS Fantasies).
I wasn't a fan of this scent. When first sprayed, it has a floral-like smell, but after it dries it turns to an amber musk. I didn't find it unique, kind of a generic scent.
I have this in the color Parade. It has a lot of sparkle and looks really pretty in the light. But the sparkles do get around your mouth and this gloss is a little sticky. My only problem with this gloss is that it appears too sheer, and I was hoping for some pigment. If you want sparkle and pigment, put it over another gloss or a lipstick, then it looks great.

It's metallic, matte (needs gloss over it), highly pigmented, but too dry. It is extremely similar to the color Adora. If you have Adora, you don't need to buy this because it's so similar. The subtle difference is that Adora is a warmer shade with an orange undertone and Beranice is a cooler shade with a rosy undertone. I prefer Adora, but again they are very similar. Both stain you lips so after you remove the color, there will still be color stuck on your lips that won't come off until it naturally fades.

This metallic shade is matte (needs gloss over it), very dry, and highly pigmented. I'm NC30 and this color tuned out very natural and beige on me. The only difference between this and a standard natural shade lipstick is that this one has a metallic finish. If you have my skin tone and you want a natural look, this color is good (but wear a gloss over it). Perhaps it would appear more pigmented and pinkish on a paler skin tone.
