|The reviews haven't been kind to MacBaren coconut. It might depend upon your needs. I commute hours to an office in New York City -- and after many years of carrying stale-tobacco odor in my clothes, especially into work, I'm tired of getting "the look".
In a crowded place, with strict smoking rules and a populace very conscious of tobacco smoke in the air -- I've been searching for something that will blend into the background. And if this is your sort of problem -- has the wife been complaining about that odor in the garage? -- MB Coconut is worth a try. It won't win prizes. It won't cover up the cheap perfume you're bringing home from the Pink Pussycat Club. But that's the point. It burns quite smooth and easily, yields a light smoke that dissipates easily in the air, and doesn't leave me hoping that's someone else's breath I smell in the elevator. No problems lighting it, or keeping it lit. It produces a fairly dry bowl all the way to the bottom, and as long as you're not huffing it the bite is pretty mellow.
It's not my favorite, and I doubt that it ever will be. But it makes my life more pleasant in those crowded places -- and isn't a pleasant feeling what we expect from a smoke?
