First impression of Toasted Coconut:
Wow did this candle smell amazing, and it didn’t smell like toasted coconut which I was expecting. It smelled like a fresh and tropical coconut with pineapple in the mix. It was super fresh and I loved it the moment I smelled the wax.
Just a FYI… this candle is manufactured by Illume which happens to be one of my favorite luxury brands, and I love it that Illume makes so many candles for Target. They’re easily accessible for one and I love that I can smell each fragrance before purchasing. The scents at Target are completely different than what Illume sells on their own site. And lastly, the prices are pretty reasonable.
Here is the scent description for Toasted Coconut:
Toasted Coconut will fill the room with fragrance notes of juicy apple, pineapple nectar, and orange zest, and provide over 50 hours of enjoyment.
I was right, pineapple! I didn’t expect or smell apple or orange zest so it’ll be interesting to see if those notes come to life once the candle was burning. And with that said… it’s time to find out!!
Even though this tin was pretty big and had two wicks, I still decided to take the conservative route and burn it in a smaller room – which ended up being a perfect call. The scent throw in a small room was perfect!! Once the wicks were lit, it took a good thirty minutes to reach a full melt pool but the aroma started drifting through my bathroom long before that. It smelled like a tropical smoothie with sweet pineapple and creamy coconut – then topped off with lots of sugar. YUM!!!!
Strength – I would rate this tin an 8 in a small room. Burning it in anything larger would really dilute the aroma so if you want to try it, burn two candles for a better scent throw.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish. I just had to stay on top of wick trimming before each new lighting.
Closing to my review:
I loved everything about this candle… the scent, the style and burn performance was just about perfect. If you love fresh tropical scents, definitely check out this candle next time you’re near a Target store. They offer Toasted Coconut in several styles, the tin I purchased or different size glass vessels. You can’t beat the price either. I think I paid $7 dollars for this candle on sale.
I’ll for sure be going back for more.
Happy candle hunting!
