I bought this in the 8oz size and I liked the scent before I burned it. Once I lit it, I found it to be too strong and smelled more like rancid chocolate and I didn't pick up on the coffee smell at all (which is more of what I was hoping for). The scent lingered for a long time after I put out the candle. Flavours and scents can definitely be different to each person (like how cilantro tastes like soap to some people), so if you love chocolate, this could be the perfect scent for you. It's just not for me.
