6052670461254022Golden Sands is one of the new fragrances from Yankee Candle for the summer.  It is listed in the Fresh category even though I get some floral in this as well. 

This fragrance is not strong by any means but that doesn’t mean rule it out.  I totally picture a nice evening stroll on the beach while the sun is setting however it does not have a “beachy” smell to it.  I don’t get even a hint the salty water, sea air or sun tan lotion smell.  I actually smell vanilla…not like a baker’s vanilla but a softer feminine vanilla.  I can smell the sandalwood and I do get a sweet floral note in it as well.  Yankee Candle’s description of this scent is:

Your private beach awaits, where time pauses in soft breezes of soothing sandalwood, luminous orange flower and warm tonka beans.

IMG_0219I personally won’t be buying this in a jar or anything but it was nice to try.  I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered as a gift.  

It’s not overly floral which is nice because I’m pretty picky about floral scents.  I can’t handle them if they are too powdery. 

Rating (0-5): StarStarStar1/2 

Throw: light to medium

Worth It: Not something I am running to the store to pick up three jars but I’m sure there are people that really would enjoy this fragrance.
