Under The Palms™
Natural coconut smell
Sometimes I am afraid that coconut scents will smell like sun tan lotion. This scent is great it smells very natural. I wish it had a better throw I put it in my warmer in my bathroom outlet it was perfect for the small room. I think I will try it in a 2 wick it should be stronger.

If you like stronger Yankee scents, this one is just not for you. I purchased this scent in a tart twice, and it just didn't throw well. I could hardly smell it. And the room wasn't even that large. It was only a bedroom. The scent itself is nice- very simple and tropical. It was nice to have a coconut scent that wasn't already mixed with pineapple. It's very natural and fruity. The only problem is that there is no use having a wonderful scent that you can hardly smell. If you have to have it, I would suggest burning a jar and using a tart or two in the same room. Otherwise, it's very difficult to detect.

Fresh, Tropical, Coconut Scent
I absolutely love this scent, it's definitely my new favorite coconut based scent of Yankee's. The fresh green smell just goes so well with the coconut, and it has the most fantastic throw. What a great way to ring in the warmer seasons.

I like to try as many scents as I can at least once. I wasn't too excited about Under The Palms, not really being a coconut fan. But, I was pleasantly surprised. The green notes come through first. Very clean smelling. It smells like a palm frond freshly broken off of a tree. The almost pungent green smell is well balanced with the smooth, sweet smell of coconut. I've enjoyed it all day. It has a medium throw and isn't overbearing. Almost like a background fragrance. Although it definitely isn't an everyday kind of scent, I will buy again.

I think this smells like a mix of coconut and aloe. It's not strong but fresh and airy. If you aren't sure, buy the tart and try it before buying the candle. It's not bad & I was much more pleased with this than a few of the other new "tropical" scents.

This is so so to me... if your a person who enjoys coconut or tropical type scents you will probably like this but if you dont prefer coconut maybe not as the coconut is very prominent in this one .. i say it doesnt ever hurt to try though :) Coconut is for sure the first thing i smell with a little bit of green ....not at all fruity ... I like it but dont really love it

Not one of my favorites
When this new fragrance appeared I was instantly captivated ... the name "Under the Palms" resurrecting memories of my early childhood spent on the tip of Florida, literally "under the palms". The photo label with the luscious palm fronds with the sun glinting through and, of course, the accompanying calm green of the candle wax. This was undoubtedly going to be a staple in my line of favorite Yankee Candle fragrances.
I hightailed it to my local Yankee Candle retail store and sought out "Under the Palms" the minute I walked in the door. Rather than trying a jar candle immediately, I prudently sniffed a tart. It smelled non-descript, like plain wax. Oh well, thought I, it will release it's exotic, tropical fragrance once the tart begins to melt. Bought the tart, hurried home and popped it in my electric tart warmer. Waited for it to melt, waited with anticipation to be transported back to the land of my childhood.
Unfortunately, the end result smelled like the dispenser soap in a public restroom. I couldn't detect anything that resembled palms or any "green" tropical scent whatsoever. What a disappointment ... and I'm not usually displeased with Yankee Candle fragrances.
At this point I'd like to comment on the "new" spring line of fragrances. The spring "preview" lists several scents - all ocean, fruit or tropical in nature. As other reviewers have pointed out, these scents are not associated with spring but rather high summer. When I think of "spring" fragrances, scents like daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, eglantine #the sweetbriar rose# and lily-of-the-valley come to mind. Softer and lighter notes with a gentle nature. Perhaps Yankee Candle can save the hot summer fragrances for June, July and August and give customers some tried-and-true treats that we associate with spring. Let's not forget spring, a 3 month-long season full of delicate and enduring scents waiting to be captured in candlelight.

Under the Palms
Love this scent. Smells like the beach and my favorite place, Florida. I do wish this scent was stronger. In the Jar and the tart itself it's perfect. It burns a lot lighter than I would like but I still enjoy the fragrance.
