Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was the typical large apothecary jar from Yankee Candle. The label on the front clearly displayed the company name and scent name. The picture on front was a closeup of some driftwood, heart shaped river rocks, and seashells. The color of the wax was a sandy beach brown and the wick was well-centered. 4/5
  • Scent: This scent was fresh and clean, somewhat masculine. None of the notes in this fragrance were heavy – light and airy, very relaxing. The vetiver was what I noticed the most with slightly sweet woodsy notes. I found it quite enjoyable. 4/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw on this candle was very light. It was best suited for the smallest room, where it provided a nice background note. I couldn’t smell it in the other rooms unless I was right over it. 1.5/5
  • Performance: This candle was a slooooow burn. It took a long time to get a full wax melt pool but eventually did so. The wax melt pool was small but even. I did keep an Illuma-Lid on this candle to tame the flame until the candle was burned about mid-way. The burn time was approximately 130 hours. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I had a slight mix-up with this order that did take several emails before it was ironed out. Once the order arrived, everything was in great shape. 3.5/5
  • Overall rating: 3 (Technically 3.4 but rounding down for scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.


Happy candle burning ~

  1. I got a few votives of Beach Wood in a Bed Bath & Beyond clearance last year and my reaction was, “meh.” The throw was very light, as you said, and the scent pretty non-descript, but then I grabbed some tarts at the YC outlet to round out whatever special they were having and the throw from those is much better. It’s still not a go-to scent, but I will probably keep a few around for when I need something inoffensive and summery.
