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!

I think this smells similar to Coconut Bay, only better. You can definitely smell the hints of island fruit and musk. It throws quite well, too!

This smells like summer. Reminds me of tanning lotion, which I like the smell of. Or coconut shampoo maybe? The throw is okay, but the smell itself is strong. I like it a lot. Would use again.

Really like this tart isnt as strong as the other coconut tarts like Coconut Bay but still has a real nice mild smell of coconut. Not to sweet either.

Love this scent and my son is not allergic to it.
I have been searching for a new scent and have tried several, all of which I loved however my sons allergies would be so bad I had to stop using them.
My son told me his girlfriend is a fan of YC as well and the scents she has does not bother him at all. I asked her which scents she would recommend...I received this one in the mail yesterday.
I am happy to say this is my new scent, now my son can visit more often!
I also have a question: I love the scent of lemongrass, any chance of lemongrass scented products?
