Review Summary:

Scent Description: A picturesque fragrance of radiant sunshine and wistful floral notes.

Melt Size: 0.8 ounces

Melt Type: Single scallop shaped melt. Paraffin wax.

Where Melted: Room sized 8′ x 9.5′

How Melted:  Bulb melter (with 40W bulb)

Great For: Spring/Summer; People who love floral scents; Large open spaces

Comments: This floral didn’t seemed to be mixed with anything, so it may be too floral for some.

Would I repurchase? Yes, only for my large open living space to give this scent room to “breathe.”

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: I hate the shrink wrap, so losing a half star there. The label showed a bunch of pretty yellow sunflowers. The wax was a bright, sunny yellow. Very fitting for the scent. 3.5/5
  • Scent: This scent was a bright, fresh scent. Although I’m not a big floral fan, this one was pleasant to me. It made the room seem bright and clean. 3.5/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw was very strong on this wax melt. It completely enveloped the room it was in. I could also smell it from behind the closed door and on into the hallway. I think this scent was too much for the room it was in. I would use two in my open living space or only use half this tart in one of my smaller rooms if I were to repurchase. 5/5
  • Longevity: The scent lasted several hours non-stop in my bulb melter. It was not one that was noticeable the next day. 3.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I had no problems with this order from YC. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5 (Technically 4.1 but rounded down for longevity.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.



Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea I will have to look for this one. Sounds like it’s right up my ally. I remember a few years ago there were some popular sunflower scents out on the market and talk about a headache inducer! There was some scent note in them that I couldn’t enjoy. But as per your review this one I will find and purchase!! I’m currently melting a whole YC tart “Bambo” It’s a clean soft perfumey green scent. I am really liking it but wish the throw was stronger. I’m giving it a 3/5.

    • I need to find Bamboo – I like those types of scents. This YC Sunflower scent was really nice and not too much. Some florals can definitely give me a headache.
