Coconut Beach Yankee Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Yankee Candle
Type: 22oz large candle
Fragrance: Coconut Beach
Scent Strength: Very light
First impression of Coconut Beach:
Coconut Beach was a fragrance I truly couldn’t resist purchasing the moment I saw it listed on Yankee’s website. I love coconut scents, especially sweet and sugary ones… add a tropical component and I’m sold! This candle sounded amazing.
Here is the scent description from Yankee’s website:
A taste of the tropics—warm coconut blended with pineapple and Tahitian vanilla.
Top: Salty Air, Pineapple
Mid: Fresh Coconut, Lei Blossom
Base: Airy Musk, Tahitian Vanilla
Top note is the initial impression of the fragrance, middle note is the main body of the scent and base is its final impression.
First impression… this was an interesting coconut fragrance for me. It wasn’t a sweet tropical coconut but more of an airy and fresh floral. I admit I was hoping for more coconut in this scent but that’s okay… Coconut Beach was so pretty, it was already growing on me and I hadn’t even lit the wick yet.
Now let’s see how this candle performs!
I stuck to a small bathroom to burn this candle in. Yankee candles are generally lightly scented for me so smaller rooms work best. Once the wick was lit, it took a good 4 hours to reach a full melt pool and from then on out… a very fresh and bright floral filled my bathroom. Coconut may have been present but whatever floral I was smelling dominated over the coconut. I’m guessing it was the Tahitian vanilla and Lei blossom. I never detected pineapple or musk in this aroma. Very strange and yet still such a pretty fragrance. I liked it. It just wasn’t what I was expecting.
Strength – this was a light fragrance as predicted. In a small room, I would rate this candle a 6 out of 10. Not super strong at all. I wouldn’t even try in a medium or larger room. The scent would be totally lost.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned fine, minimal wick trimming too which surprised me.
Closing to my review:
Coconut Beach was a surprise scent for me. I went into this review thinking one thing and ended with a completely different perspective and opinion. I thought it would be a sweet tropical coconut but it ended up being a soft tropical floral instead. At least that’s what my nose picked up on. Regardless of what I expected, it was still a lovely aroma and I’m not a fan of floral scents. My husband didn’t mind it either. I had this candle burning two solid weeks and he never once said a word. I consider that a win.
In closing, if you’re thinking of purchasing this scent because it has coconut in it, I suggest you swing by a Walmart Supercenter or a Yankee store and smell it first before purchasing one. You may or may not like it. Floral lovers… this was a lovely scent worth a gander.
Happy candle hunting!
