Black Coconut from Yankee Candle will always have a special place in my heart. I did my graduate work on black carbon (yes, I studied the black residue left behind by candles). Anyways, after my defense, my officemate gave me a small jar of Black Coconut as a farewell gift. I still have that candle…but I picked up this tart of Black Coconut to try!
The Scent: Coconut…no bells and whistles, simple, creamy, tropical coconut. It is a perfect summertime scent. B+
The Throw: Unfortunately, the throw on this tart was a light-medium. It was the type of throw that your nose got used to, so you would forgot about it quickly, then get a ‘hey, coconut” whiff. I wish it were a few notches stronger. C-
Overall, Black Coconut (a now retired Yankee Candle) is a wonderful and simple coconut scent with a throw that leaves you wanting something a bit stronger.
