Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a small tin that could fit in the palm of my hand. The tin had the words 'Yankee Candle' embossed at the very top. While the base part of the tin was flat, the lid that slid up and down was raised with the impression of a small YC apothecary jar on it. When sliding the lid up and down, the "lid" of the candle jar remained in place and the "jar" is what would actually go up and down (like you are removing the lid of an actual candle jar). Very clever design. The label was an actual sticker on the "candle jar" and it showed slices of juicy pineapple with a couple of tropical looking flowers nearby. The scent name was displayed on the label. Once the tin was opened, it revealed a fragrance pack inside filled with scented gel. The gel was a light yellow. I could slide the tin open a little to expose just a little of the gel pack or further down to expose a larger portion. The lid would actually come off and leave the entire thing exposed. I could also slide the top part off (the part that held the "candle lid"). I kept mine exposed half way and I kept the lid on top. 4/5
  • Scent: Love the Pineapple Cilantro scent. It was sweet and juicy, but not as sweet as a pure pineapple scent. It was fresh and tangy and incredibly mouthwatering. It was the most prominent note. The cilantro was noticeable and gave the pineapple a slightly herb-like essence. I only smelled the cilantro at my end whiffs when I would take a deep breath. The coconut made this a little creamy but it was difficult to pick out the coconut individually. Overall a great blend that I already knew I loved in candle form. I am dinging it a half-star, though, because I think the cilantro should be a little stronger to make this scent even more unique. 4.5/5
  • Scent Strength: The scent strength for this travel tin was actually pretty good. I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised when I left it in a small bathroom and returned about an hour later. The scent throw was noticeable in the space - not strong or even moderately strong, but it scented enough that I could tell it was there. It faired even better in a drawer and in a hotel bathroom. 3.5/5
  • Ease of Use: I found this product very easy to use. I just slid the lid up or down to open/close. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I had great CS with this order. Fast shipping. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5/5 (Technically 4.4 but rounding up for ease of use and scent.)

Give yourself up to the refreshing surprise of this tropical treat. Fresh island pineapple served with a citrus touch of cilantro and sweet coconut is a bit like sipping a tropical drink al fresco. The experience encourages you to escape the mundane – if ever so briefly – and enjoy the soothing sensation of sitting on a tropical beach. Even the pineapple fragrance’s unexpected soft leaf green color plays into the desire to escape the ordinary.
