Rated 2 out of 5 by Polopuppy Yankees light is dimming
I would agree with the previous reviewer. To me none of these fragrances have the "wow" factor (or the X factor), they have barely any scent at all. A very disappointing buy and too expensive to send back.

I have to say, I think Yankee has gone off the boil over the past few years. I can't understand the term "Pure Essence", as Yankee always claim that they are true to life fragrances. If so, why does the Cherry Blossom in this set not smell like the previous Cherry Blossom? Which one was the true scent, since an actual Cherry Blossom plant hasn't changed it's scent in the same number of years? Linden Tree and Cherry Blossom to me smell plasticy, almost artificially sweet and soapy. The Mint is ok, but hardly any fragrance whatsoever. I am coming to the end of my journey with Yankee I feel. These just aren't cutting the mustard any more for me!

This 53 piece votive collection is certainly great value for money considering it is a brand new range.
The fragrances are so calming and are a great way to wind down after a stressful day
Linden Tree & Cherry Blossom are lovely but I was a bit worried I would not like the Wild Mint. How wrong was I?
This is a delightful combination of fragrances that work well together, whether burning one fragrance or all 3, you will not be disappointed with this purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by pawsey Calming after Christmas...delightful
Very glad I bought these when they were on the TSV because I had the auto delivery as well, so now looking forward to the 3 next drops.
Th wild mint has a delicate aroma of mint as you would expect both as the votive and tealight, do like it very much.
The linden tree I have not had before so am happy to say it has a slight aroma of fresh air and a clean fresh cotton smell to me, lovely.
Cherry blossom I do love because it reminds me that spring is around the corner, slight sweet and heady smell, same as it always does.
The two buckets are cute, not had these before and by the end of the whole collection they are going to change colour to orange then red by Christmas next.... Just an adorable set.
Many thanks from Sandra on Anglesey xx
Please keep on doing a great job QVC as always with these great buys xxx

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stargirl76 Cherry blossom, but not as I know it
This set is lovely, however as another reviewer has written, it's not cherry blossom. I was so excited as this used to be my favourite and thought I it was being brought out of retirement. Can't express my disappointment. The new cb is nice but just not what I thought and do feel unless it is an original relaunch then it should have a new name.
The mint and linden tree are beautiful and fresh after all the cinnamon of Christmas. All in all still a great set.

Saw these on Web and thought the 3 would be light and fresh after the spicy smells of Christmas candles, glad I didn't order as I saw them on Saturday whilst out shopping, Cherry blossom not flowery enough and can't place a distinct aroma for Linden tree, however really loved the Fresh mint so bought the wax melts and saved all round as I would have had to pay to return candles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TC45 Cherry Blossom disappointment
First of all, these are all nice fragrances.
I was totally overjoyed to hear that Cherry Blossom was returning! It was my absolute favourite of all Yankee fragrances – BUT – I was devastated when I received a tart only to discover that it is NOT THE SAME fragrance!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a large jar of the ‘old’ Cherry Blossom to compare it with and the ‘old’ Cherry Blossom is much ‘fruiter’. Why has Yankee Candle called it Cherry Blossom if they have not brought back the exact same recipe?? They have brought out different Gardenia and Jasmine fragrances but given them different names ie Sheer Gardenia then White Gardenia.
The Wild Mint is nice (although as mint goes I preferred the Fresh Mint) and Linden Tree is also okay.
