Christmas Cupcake Wax Tart
Advantages: nice scent, lasts well
Disadvantages: No scent reminds me of Christmas!
I am a big fan of the Yankee Candle brand and more often than not I like to purchase the wax tarts as it allows me to sample lots of fragrances relatively inexpensively. In the post Christmas sales last year I picked up a few wax tarts which I have saved to use for the run up to Christmas and one which I have recently used is the Christmas cupcake one.
The wax tart is a small flat piece of cream coloured wax which comes packaged tightly in a plastic wrap which I always find a nightmare to get off without scissors or a knife! On the front of the wax tart it has a sticker featuring the Yankee Candle name and a picture of some sweet looking cupcakes and a snowman.
Wax tarts are designed to be melted in a tart burner using the heat from a tea light candle and so they have no wick to light or anything. After I had placed the tart in the bowl of my burner and lit the tea light I began to go about my jobs for the morning. I returned to the room around half an hour later and really liked the scent which had filled my room. The Christmas cupcake tart has released a lovely sweet smell in to the room and the main scent I could pick out was vanilla which did remind me a little of cakes baking in the oven I suppose. There was, at least as far as I was concerned, nothing in this wax tart that reminded me of Christmas which is a shame because I did expect it to be a bit more festive. This is not to say that I didn't like the fragrance, because I did, as I am a fan of sweet and homely fragrances but it would have been nice to have something which was just a little bit more festive.
Yankee Candle claim their wax tarts give eight hours of fragrance but with this one I would say that I have burned it for a few hours more than that and whilst the fragrance isn't quite as strong as it was initially it is still noticeable, especially in my small lounge when I have the door shut.
This wax tart will cost between £1.00 and £1.20 depending on where you buy it from and I do think that it is a good price for a sweet and long lasting fragrance. I actually bought mine for just 50p in the sales which is of course a bargain!
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A nice tart, but not one that is particularly christmassy
