Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum: I smell.......nothing.

Dear Yankee Candle:
Why did you have to go and ruin a good thing?  I spent a small fortune on my favorite candles of yours, just to find they have no scent.  The large jars, for some reason aren't fragrant at all anymore.  Not even a little.  However, there is a new candle jar - supposedly the same scent but admittedly according to your clerk - these newer candles are "a little stronger".  A little?  It's the same size jar, but more expensive (because $25 or $27 a jar wasn't expensive enough...?).  Why is this?  I don't understand.  When I buy a Cranberry Chutney or Pumpkin Pie candle, I expect my house - or at least the room the candle is in, at a minumum - to be fragrant.  And yet....not even a little.  So very disappointing.

That's so funny that the scent isn't strong. When I go in the store, I immediately get a headache from all the fragrances combined. It's overwhelming.

That store in the mall seems to punch me right in the face when I walk by. I'd be pretty steamed if I paid that much for one of their big candles and it didn't smell...

I know right?!?! You can smell the store a mile away...and yet....my house, not so much. It never used to be that way either. I'm not sure why they changed their formula but clearly they did at least for some of their candles.
