I actually really like this candle!
I got this candle as a gift, and I'm not usually a fan of coconut but I really like this candle.
It's not extremely strong, but I wouldn't say it's weak. It's got a musky outside sort of coconut smell to it. It reminds me of being outdoors somewhere. It's nice to light at night because it's got a relaxing tone to it.

I ordered the room spray in Black Coconut and was so taken with it. I was thrilled to find Yankee Candle also had a candle in that fragrance. Boy, was I disappointed! Although when opening the jar, the fragrance is wonderful, when burning, there is no fragrance at all. Such a disappointment!

To me, this smells like clay. I'm not kidding!! I live in NE Ohio, when you are a kid in NE Ohio you grow up digging clay, not dirt, in the backyard. This is what this smell reminds me of. Not for me at all. So glad Yankee has such awesome customer service and I was able to exchange it!!

Doesn't smell a lot like coconut
Not sure what this candle smells of, but it's definitely not the crisp coconut scent I had in mind. Also, it's definitely not fresh scent as the writing on the jar indicates, but rather thick and heavy... maybe like the tropical island on the warm night just before the storm? However, I absolutely LOVE how this candle looks, even when not lit - the color and the label are beautiful. It has medium to somewhat weak throw.

i am so tired of spending $28 dollars on a candle that has no smell even when i am inches away from the flame.if all i want is a candle just for the flame and the glow then i am going to buy $3 dollar jar candles and keep the $25 dollars in my pocket.i am also not going to drive 30 minutes to exchange a candle after i have already spent money on S&H only to spend more money on gas not counting the aggravation of travel,parking at the mall and walking. i am done buying yankee candle and spending a fortune just for an unscented candle,no,i do not recommend this candle or any other scents

having problems with the wick staying light
I bought several of these, 3 double wicks, 1 jar. I have light two of the double wicks and they wont stay light. I contacted Yankee Candle and had a very pleasant chat on line. Perhaps it was a bad batch. I love the black color love the smell, but one wick will burn out (they is barely a flame at any given time) I relight it, it burns out within a minute.) so unfortunately I will be returning them even the votives to be replaced with another frangrance.

I love the subtle coconut hues in this candle. I'm not sure what else it is paired with (maybe a vanilla?) but it is amazing!! I always have to have one of these in my house!

Beachy fragrance. Not overpowering. Moderate throw. Reminds me of my mom's tanning lotion growing up.
