I got Yankee Candle Mountain Lake as a present for my brother, who really enjoys this type of scents. It’s currently available as a treasure for a limited time and together with Yankee Candle Nature’s Paintbrush and Yankee Candle Autumn Night, which are both in stores now, I think you have a perfect Autumnal or transitional trio if you are a cologne type fragrance fan.

Official scent notes in Yankee Candle Mountain Lake are: mountain pines and cypress with notes of lily and musk.
So yeah, it’s a men’s shower gel fragrance. These are most often called “cologne” scents but since this so fresh and watery, I’d say it’s more of a shower gel. I smell bergamot and sage as top notes, mixing with a strong water note and underlined by oak, lily and pine.
It’s OK, very green and watery, with the wood base notes taking it into a very masculine territory.
If you liked Over the River from Yankee, you’ll enjoy this as well. It’s a nice year round scent but works great as a transition fragrance, say in November. It also works really well paired with Yankee’s Sea Harbor.
The scent throw on my large jar of Yankee Candle Mountain Lake is about an 8.
