Mountain Lodge

Wow has it been a busy week! I’ve been moving and working like crazy…needless to say, very little candle burning! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Once I have my new house cute-ified, I’ll be posting some new pictures of my life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland!

Anyways, do you all know about the amazingness of Mountain Lodge? This Yankee Candle scent is one of those “everyone loves” it scent! My husband, me, my friends…’s a unique scent that can be enjoyed by many people, all with diverse scent preferences.

Mountain LodgeThe Scent: This earthy and masculine scent is simply intoxicating. It smells like a romantic mountain retreat…..kind of like being in a lodge cabin made of aromatic cedar with a crackling fire going, and maybe an open window to let some of the fresh mountain air in. The scent is hard to describe because, to me at least, it smells like a place and event rather than a physical item. Simply refreshing, unique, and almost sexy. A

The Throw: While I have always wished that this scent would be a tad stronger, it is a medium throw that definitely satisfies my “quality standards.” The main problem I have is the small scent radius… smells great, just does throw that far! It’s best to burn/melt in either a small room or in a place close to your nose. Overall, I keep buying it! B-

So….have I encouraged you to at least give Mountain Lodge a sniff? It is a wonderful scent that really transports me to a secluded cabin in an alpine forest in the middle of autumn! Love this one!

  1. I LOVE Mountain Lodge too !! I also love its twin brother, Mountain Cabin, which is in Yankee Candle’s “Wordy Jars”, found at TJMaxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods. Mountain Cabin IS Mountain Lodge, just with a different label. I have a really good supply of this scent stashed, and now that the weather is cooler, I shall be burning it frequently.

  2. Hello Yankee Candle Sisters,

    I just bought this candle because it smelled awesome, but the throw did seem a bit week. I was reading some reviews on the YC website and it seems this candle has been around for a while and there seems to be a common complaint that the throw is weaker now then it used to be. From the reviews It also seemed people were complaining that their other favorite candle’s throws are also weaker. Have you noticed this at all?

    Love your blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Dale! My experience with Mountain Lodge is the same…it smells amazing but the throw is pretty weak. I’ve had okay luck with this is tart form.
      Yankee switched wax-types a few years ago and some have noticed that throw strengths have changed. My feelings for Yankee Candle are that the throws either are wonderful or really weak (not much middle ground). I have not directly noticed this with a single scent, but I always gravitate to the new scents ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Yes,mountain cabin is soo great, and I’ve been searching with no luck. Now that I know it’s same a the mountain lodge I’ll be purchasing. Thank you
