Under The Palms™
I have a votive holder that holds 5 candles, which usually produces a great amount of fragrance. Not so with Under the Palms. I cannot notice the scent unless I'm right over top of it. There is no way this scent would cover food odors. Very disappointing considering the scent itself is fantastic. It's a fresh green coconut scent that just so tropical. I'll try it in a tart before writing it off completely. I won't repurchase it in votive candles that's for sure.

If you like Black Coconut, you'll like this too
I discovered this new scent in a YC catalog mailer with a "scratch and sniff" sample with the new spring scents. I LOVE coconut scents, though they have to be just right; sometimes coconut scents are too strong, too sweet, or too "fake" smelling. **This is a very warm, smooth coconut.** Yummyyyy! It evokes the beach and tropical getaways without smelling like sunscreen. It pretty much smells exactly like Black Coconut, although it's really hard to tell if there are subtle differences with just the votive of this scent, which I bought to sample. The votives don't have much throw, thus my 4-star rating, but I can smell it in the vicinity, and I definitely plan to buy this in a medium or large jar. As for the quality of the votive itself: I lit this one at about 3 p.m.; it's now almost 11:30 p.m., and it's still burning! (and I can smell it from very close by). Amazing.

Smells like vacation
If you want to feel like you're on a tropical island, this is the one for you. It's snowing here in NY today, but this scent is keeping me warm and relaxed.

A delightful, breezy new fragrance to make me feel like I'm laying on a beach, with warm tropical breezes. Love it!

Under the Palms...lies a treasure-trove of coconuts
Sweet clean coconut clearly predominates in this candle with lesser green notes, somewhat herbal or balm-like, rather hard to describe. Achieving a fresh yet relaxing feel, the coconut, while strong, is not strident. This seems like a scent that will layer well, possibly with some of YC's many exotic bloom candles. Though votives were my only sampling option at the time, I generally feel that tarts offer a fuller experience; However, I was quite impressed with the throw, which released fairly quickly in my bedroom. I look forward to trying the tart to see if I am even more impressed. A good start to my first exposure to YC's Spring 2014 collection!

Fresh, Relaxing, and Just a Bit Sweet
A very relaxing green scent with a good amount of coconut as well. I'm love this candle, and I can't wait for the tarts to be released!
