Ive recently have come to terms that yankee candle does not have very good throws on most of the candles ive bought. Waikiki melon smells very strong in the tumbler but when lit i dont smell anything but a hint of orange. Im very disapointed.

Wonderful mellow tropical scent!
I opted to purchase Waikiki Melon in the two wick tumbler jar after reading complaints that the throw was too weak in the large jar. I now suspect those complaints are based on unrealistic expectations. This isn't a strong citrus scent, it's a mellow tropical melon scent. Citrus-based candles tend to be strong and often smell artificial, but this candle genuinely smells like Hawaiian melons, which are much more mellow, with a subtle blend of tropical oranges. It has grown on me more than any other candle and I now appreciate its mellow, authentic tropical fruit flavor. It also has a wonderfully relaxing quality, and I find myself reaching for it more than most of my other candles. It doesn't overpower the room with a heady fragrance, but it does fill the room with a wonderful, mellow blend of Hawaiian fruit!

This is a great summer scent.
I love yankee candles, and I particularly enjoy the fruit collection, which this candle is in. There is nothing bad about this candle.
The color is amazing, the throw on it is strong but not too over powering, it makes me think of a fruity drink on a beach somewhere. I got this candle a while back when they had the *buy 1 get 1 free sale, but love this !
Thinking about trying it in a tart sometime too, :)

one of my new favorites
I was recently told @ my local store that this was going to be seasonal. PLEASE, please, keep it in stock all year. This is THE best scent for our condo, I keep trying to buy as many as possible, however we don't have alot of storage in this condo! also need tea lights & car ones in this scent. Love, love, love it. I'd give it 10 stars if I could:)

I have tired of writing reviews on Yankee Candles website of the weak throw of many scents these days.
Not this one! I am so pleasantly surprised that I am ordering four more while I have a BOGO coupon. While it has a strong throw, it is a soft, sweet scent of melon and floral that is just beautiful. I am a fruit scent fan and rarely buy a floral scent. Waikiki has just enough flower and other fruit to keep it from smelling like a Watermelon Jolly Rancher as many melon scented candles do. This is more of a cantalope smell.
As I type this, I am sitting a good 8 feet away and the scent is just filling the room...heavenly! A perfect summer scent. I think anyone would love it. And the color is just gorgeous, especially when lit!

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this scent but what I got was a lovely melon scent mixed with just enough other fruits to keep it from being too sharp. This candle is beautiful as it burns because the melt pool is a deep orange which contrasts nicely with the lighter orange color of the unmelted wax. Truly one you should try--I think you will be pleased. I know I was.
