Happy Easter everyone! Today Rhode Island finally feels like spring!
To celebrate this excellent weather and wish away winter, I’ve been lighting Water Garden!
Water Garden is a retired scent that has been a spring or summer time rare treasure at Yankee Candle the past few years and is sometimes found at the outlets! This is the definition of a spring scent to me!
The Scent: I am not a floral girl, but I appreciate and enjoy the softness that this candle brings. There is a pleasant lily and lotus scent with hints of fresh water, greenery, and I even get a slight powdery perfume note. Yankee Candle classifies this scent as Fresh rather than Floral. I’d agree with that! While it is definitely smells like flowers, there is a freshness to it that makes it smell more like the fresh air in spring than just smelling a single bloom.
To me, Water Garden smells like you are at a small, remote, pond that is full of lily pads and a few water lilies and lotuses have just started to open! Grab a fishing rod, and try to cast over those lily pads! This scent reminds me of fishing at Indian Lake with my husband, a small lake in Wakefield, RI that we used to rent. B+
The Throw: Wow, this one throws strong and far! If you are looking for a scent to fill up a large room…look no further! This is it! It has been burning evenly, but the wax pool in mine is shallow. (That candle in the picture above had been lit for 5 hours……I grabbed the picture before I trimmed that wick!). A strong through with a shallow wax pool means a home run throw! A
I am enjoying this scent a lot! I’m also enjoying this jar! I’ve been on a tart kick, so it’s nice to have a candle last more than a few lights! (Unfortunately that means I don’t have a lot to review!)
