IMG_1302Picture yourself walking on the beach, but instead of letting the ocean water run across your feet, you are up closer to the dunes.  The sweet smell of wild grasses growing fills the slightly salty ocean air.  This is what I think of when I have Dune Grass melting or burning. 

Yankee Candle’s website describes this scent as:

A fresh, green coastal breeze of bamboo leaf, bergamot and lemon verbena with hints of white orchid.

Now, not to be confused with Green Grass, this one has more of an ocean/beachy scent to it.  Even though it has bergamot and lemon verbena it’s not a super strong scent, it’s actually sweet and mild.  Excellent for summer days or nights where you just want to pretend for a moment you are walking on a white sandy beach, without smelling pure salt water or suntan lotion.  Relaxing.

This is actually discontinued but you can find it right now online for the SAS.  If you are interested in trying it out, you can’t be the price!  I stocked up on this in tart form.  Even though I live 10 minutes away from the beach, sometimes I just don’t have time to go there and having this scent melting in the office (AKA the candle room) I can relax, close my eyes and think of walking on the sand as the sun sets…ah summer.

Throw: Medium
Worth It: Yes, if you want to try a grassy scent that doesn’t smell like fresh cut grass.
