Dark, heavy coconut
I didn't care for this, it was too rich for my nose. I prefer something lighter and fresher, and this just overwhelmed my room.

Dark and sultry!
This little tart is wonderful! It is like a grown up coconut scent. Even though the main scent note is coconut, it doesn't have that "fruity" or tropical like scent that the sunnier fragrances have. The coconut is rich and dark and heady. The cedar wood adds a slight masculine quality to the fragrance. It is warm and relaxing and reminds me of Golden Sands with its soothing scent.

If you liked Midsummers Night, give this one a chance
Not sure what this wax tart smells of, but it's definitely not the crisp coconut scent I had in mind. Also, it shouldn't be part of the fresh scents group because it's rather musky and heavy... maybe like the tropical island after the sunset? Anyway, if you liked Midsummers night, I'm pretty sure you'll dig this one too. Compared to the jar candle, it has a bit stronger throw, but overall medium at best. Overall, rather subtle scent.

Love the fresh scent
I normally do not like coconut candles ---- too sweat . But this melt has it just right. On store employee recommendation I used half of the black coconut and half under the palms melt. What a great scent . Fresh and relaxing. Try it.

Smells like summer!
This doesn't have a strong throw, it is perfect for my guest bathroom.
The scent is wonderful. It smells like summer, sitting by the pool drinking something fruity and enjoying the sun with your coconut skin oil. I found it very relaxing.

Mmmm, pass! Next!
This Black Coconut tart has no scent and throw at all. I purchased this during the buy 1 get 1 50% off. Thankfully I only bought two. I'm sitting about five feet away and I can't really smell anything. The scent is just too faint. Even when I put my nose directly above my wax warming with the tart melting, I can't smell much. Black Coconut is definitely a no-buy!

You like coconut? This one's for you!
The first thing that caught my attention with this fragrance was the name - Black Coconut. Black Coconut? Intriguing, to say the least. I bought a tart to sample and was delighted with the photo on the wrapper - the tropics at twilight - and I had high hopes for the next step, actually melting the black wax.
This fragrance is powerful, to put it mildly, and you have absolutely no trouble discerning what it is you're smelling - it practically screams: "Hey! I'm coconut!" I've tried a few of Yankee Candle's coconut scents but they were all a tad too mild for my nose - not so with this one. In fact, it's too strong for me. One little tart filled my entire home in a very short period of time. Talk about "throw"! Peeking out from under the heavy blanket of coconut is a tone of floral which is pleasant but again, too strong. The combination is really overpowering.
Although I enjoy the aroma of coconut to a fair extent, I don't believe I'll try this one again due to it's "smack you in the face" intensity but I'm sure others will revel in this fragrance. That's why I'm recommending it. But, for me, it's just too powerful and too sweet.
If you are a die-hard fan of coconut, try this scent. You won't be disappointed!
