Yankee Candle Stargazer Lily is in online European Yankee stores right now (but not all of them; I don’t know how the EU distribution goes with Yankees, but if you can’t find a fragrance it’s worth browsing several Yankee retailers’ sites and you can find some pretty rare stuff for normal price, as I’ve discovered during my last Treasure haul) as a Treasure or rather a Yankee Candle Special Appearance Candle which means it’s only available in a large jar.
I bought Yankee Candle Stargazer Lily because I tend to love Yankee floral fragrances and I’ve never had this one before so I wanted to try it out. I’m always buying new fragrances, rarely stocking up on favorites because even though I end up with some duds there are a lot of amazing candles out there and I’m reluctant to limit myself with a few tried and loved scents.
The official notes in Yankee Candle Stargazer Lily are: stargazer lily.
It’s a very true to life lily fragrance with a perfumey undertone. I am a big flowers lover, I have a large flower garden that I’m constantly fiddling with and I keep my house full of vases filled with fresh cut flowers from April to November (and I compensate with candles during winter and early spring). While I have a corner dedicated to stargazer lilies in my garden and I enjoy them a lot I rarely use them in my flower arrangements indoors. It’s not that I dislike the scent but it’s very strong and I tend to connect it to funeral home arrangements which are not something I want to think about all that much. So while Stargazer Lily is a lovely true to life lily scent I don’t particularly like smelling it. And it’s very strong so after about an hour of burning time I was ready to open some windows.

I’ve been burning Yankee Candle Stargazer Lily in a large jar in my hurricane holder and it burned with no issues. The scent throw was about a 8. I burned it in my main hall and in my living room during the day since I find it to be a mostly summer or spring day scent and I got a nice wax pool after about three hours. I would not buy Yankee Candle Stargazer Lily again simply due to the fact that it’s not my kind of scent.
