Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: The sleek, contemporary style jar was very nice – a thinner glass jar that gradually became larger toward the base. The bottom of the jar was heavy and there was a thick glass bottom. The glass jar had the words “PURE RADIANCE by YANKEE CANDLE” in gold lettering just toward the bottom. The lid was bronze in color with a circular label in the center. The scent line/company name was displayed on top of the lid and the scent name was on the bottom. In between that identification, there was a picture of a roll of denim fabric. The wax itself was a pretty shade of blue. The single wick was flat and a bit larger than the wick found in the standard apothecary jars. This was a cotton wick. 4.5/5
  • Scent: This scent was very fresh and clean, but not quite what I was expecting. A great blend of sweet cedar with some musk and floral undertones, very slight perfumey notes. I didn’t get a “denim” or “freshly laundered” smell as I expected, but it was still a very nice unisex type of scent. 4/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw on my candle was not very good. I could smell it in the smallest room – it filled the air as a background note and nothing more. It got lost when moving it outside of the small powder room. I’ve read great reviews on the scent throw on this candle, but that was not my experience. 2/5
  • Performance: I loved the flat wick on this candle – it made for a very deep wax melt pool and cast a very beautiful glow. I got a full wax melt pool a bit faster than with the traditional YC wicks. This candle was still a slow burn, though, and lasted for approximately 52 hours. No noticeable black sooting. The candle burned well all the way down but with just a little bit of wax left on the jar. 4.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent CS – no problems with this order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

  1. I have tried this very same candle. My experience was quite similar to Andrea’s review. I really liked the packaging on the candle, the scent it’s self didn’t give me the laundered scent that I was expecting. So for me it was still a very nice scent just not what I was hoping for. The scent throw wasn’t very strong. I expect a very strong throw from all of Yankee Candle products! That is the reason I buy them. I don’t think I would re-purchase this one again. In store customer service was outstanding as always.

  2. I LOVE the denim line, but have to admit that the reed diffuser works better than the candles when it comes to how far the scent reaches. I really like the clean scent better than the other ‘cotton’ or ‘linen’ scents, and am heartbroken that they discontinued this scent. I really wished they would bring it back.
