Pineapple Paradise is without a doubt one of my all time favorite Yankee Candle scents!!! I just wish they would keep it all the time. The only time I can get it now is when they bring it back from retirement for the Semi Annual Sales, so I have to stock up during those times. I got several this time when they had the 6 for $60 sale!! What an amazing deal !!! You really need to do that more often.
Had a few problems with the items being broken during shipment, but the Yankee Candle staff went way above and beyond to help me with the issue!! Thanks and I just can't say enough about your amazing customer service!!

Amazing scent, but no throw when burning.
I absolutely love this fragrance! Imagine biting into fresh, juicy pineapple. This scent smells so authentic and delicious. It's one of the best pineapple scents ever.
The down side is that after burning this candle for at least 6 hours on two different occasions, you can barely smell anything even when you are within inches of the candle. I'm so disappointed!
That being said, I will probably keep the candle and use it under my candle warmer where I may be able to get a stronger throw.

In LOVE with this candle
After hearing the reviews I was a little nervous. Most people were complaining about the scent throw and I was reluctant to grab it. But I did anyhow, and I am certainly glad that I did. I am really loving this candle. I'm not having scent throw problems, either...granted my ceilings aren't super high or anything. I had it in my bathroom first and within an hour my whole bathroom smelled like perfectly ripened pineapple. So I moved it into my bedroom and still... it lit up the entire room. If you're not big on pineapple, I really wouldn't suggest this one. But if you are like me, then you will love this. The pineapple isn't synthetic smelling whatsoever. It's so true to life!

I ordered Pineapple Paradise based on the good reviews. I like a strong candle...whatever I'm in the mood for, whether fresh, fruity, or crisp & clean; I want it to be strong. I have 12 foot ceilings, an open floor plan, and need a good, stong-scented candle to fill the air! I am a YC fan for the smell. I don't care what color they are or what the label looks like; I pay for scent :)
I love tropical scents and was looking forward to a pure, fresh pineapple scent. When I received it, I loved the color and label and upon removing the lid, I was impressed with the wonderful fresh pineapple fragrance.
I burned the candle twice...the first time for 4-5 hours and the second time for 4-6 hours. No throw. Talk about disappointment! I would like to try the Pineapple Citrus but now am afraid of the pineapple scents! I returned three candles last night....Pineapple Paradise, Autumn Fruit and Luau Party. None of these threw a scent in my home.
I must say that the YC employees were wonderfully friendly and understanding and the exchange for candles that I knew had a strong throw was easy, fast and friendly. Thank you, Yankee, for your return policy! These were my first returns to you ever....for years, ALL Yankee Candles that I bought were unbelieveably, consistently strong. Several years ago, a problem started where some had no throw but I never took advantage of the return policy...I would just burn them anyway.
I did take a tip from another reviewer on this website and looked for candles that had an "oily" and "marbled" look to them. She claims this is the scent oil and if you choose your candles like this, they will scent better. We'll see!

Lives up to the hype!
This candle absolutely lives up to the glowing reviews I've read. It smells authentic, and the scent is powerful without being overpowering. Some candles don't throw beyond the room they're in, but I genuinely felt happy walking down the hallway and realizing it smelled like a fresh pineapple!

Pineapple addict's delight!
As someone who falls into the category of loving most things pineapple, I was afraid this candle might disappoint. To the contrary, it is great to discover a candle where the essence of the fruit is not blended into disguise with the addition of other scents. Pineapple Paradise is loud and strong in proclaiming the qualities of this delightful fruit. In my home it took somewhat longer for the richness of the aroma to develop than did Cinnamon Vanilla, for instance, but the throw is more than adequate for a largish room. Wonderful summer feel to this!

Yay! They brought it back!
Pineapple Paradise was/is one of my favorite Yankee Candle scents. I'm glad they finally brought it back, even if only for a limited time. Just plain, straight pineapple... no coconut, no cilantro, no anything else.
