Scent Comparison: Fresh Cut Roses vs. True Rose from Yankee Candle Company


Fresh Cut Roses: An intoxicating English garden of fragrant heirloom roses.


True Rose: Alluring, rich and velvety. . . as fragrant as a special delivery of flawless deep red roses.

The scent of Fresh Cut Roses was more sweet and airy, a softer floral with some green notes. I felt like this was smelling a fresh bouquet of roses in a vase, leaves and all. True Rose was more heady to me – heavier and more like smelling the rose petals of a deep red rose. Even though a softer scent, the scent throw on Fresh Cut Roses was much stronger than that of True Rose. Both scents were enjoyable separately and worked well in combination with each other, too.

Do you enjoy rose scents?

Happy candle burning ~

  1. I normally don’t like candles scented with rose. They seem super heavy and overpowering. However, your review gives me some hope! I think I might just pick up the Fresh Cut Roses in a melt and give it a shot!! If for no other reason it is a floral and my favorite color, pink. Thanks Andrea.

  2. Thank you Andrea for reviewing a rose scent. I normally don’t like rose scents because they are very strong and heavy. However, I think I will pick up Fresh Cut Roses in a melt and give it a shot. You said it was enjoyable and it is a floral and pink , good enough for me to try.

    • I don’t like a lot of rose scents either, Carolyn. They smell fake to me or too perfumey. But I really enjoyed FCR…it may have made me a rose-scent convert! 😉
