The main scent I detected was that of coffee, similar to a fancy drink you would get at an upscale coffee house. The second prominent note was that of the bourbon. If you don’t like alcohol scents, then avoid this candle as the bourbon notes are quite strong. The vanilla is more of an afterthought, no where near as strong as the coffee or bourbon. The throw was adequate for our home, but I’ve seen some negative comments suggesting a weak throw from this candle.

“To me this candle smells like a subdued version of salted caramel with a hint of coffee to it. It has a fairly strong throw as I can smell it throughout my medium sized house within an hour of lighting it.“ – YankeeCandle.com
