Not the "Coconut" I had in mind.
Coconut is one of my all-time favorite scents...when I saw this one come out on-line, I ordered it immediately. I had this one to compare to Yankee's "Coconut Bay" candle. Neither one are total coconut scents, they are both mixed with other scents. I think the Black Coconut has too much of the cedar in it, and I simply didn't care for the scent. I like the Coconut Bay better, it smells more like summer time. I will recommend the candle only because the scent just wasn't for me. While burning, it was strong enough to smell through one room.

Best coconut scented candle
I love the smell of coconut and liked Coconut Bay but I didn't think it was very strong. Black Coconut has a strong (compared to other coconut candles) scent but not overpowering. The blend of coconut and cedar is perfect, I was tired of finding nothing but coconut and vanilla scented candles!

This smells like Coconut Bay and Sun & Sand got together and had a baby. I really like it but it's not especially strong and the coconut it a bit weak. The sunscreen notes of Sun & Sand are there, but it's not overpowering. While I do like Black Coconut, I probably won't purchase it again. There are other Yankee Candles that I love much more than this one...

wasn't my favorite
I was expecting more of a WOW coconut scent. Seemed a really light cast to this scent. Not for me. I will stick to Coconut Bay.

I love Coconut Bay which is a sweet coconut. I didn't care so much for Black Coconut. I couldn't even smell coconut but got the cedarwood smell. The scent did carry through my home.

So I'm obsessed with this scent now! It's my latest fave from Yankee and my favorite of the new Summer 2013 fragrances. I'm a huge fan of coconut scented anything and this is an awesome classic coconut fragrance that brings to mind a relaxing, tropical island vacation. I also love the beautiful tropical picture on the label and I love that the color goes perfectly with my decor. Thumbs waaayyyy up for this one, Yankee!!!

Nice light fragrance
This candle is a light coconut fruity scent .the only con is that like countless other Yankee candles lately the throw is not very good . I really hope Yankee starts listening to thier customers and starts making thier fragrances stronger. Otherwise we will have to find another candle brand.

Wish it was stronger
I love everything about this candle, the color, the smell, except I wish it was much stronger, I am buying a 3 wick in this and hoping that may give a stronger throw because the scent is really nice for everyone. I recommend buying the 3 wick candles for any of the scents that you would like to get a stronger whiff :) usually does the trick!
