===THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE WAX TART===
===Why I Bought This===
I love buying different Yankee Tarts and this was a new one for me that I purchased on a sale from Clinton's Cards.
The tarts are made by Yankee Candles who have been producing candles for over 40 years.
Disc of deep green wax shrink wrapped in cellophane.
Called 'Apple and Pine Needle'.
Made with pure natural extracts.
Image of pine branch, pine cone and deep red apple on the label.
Product of USA.
The back has a round sticky label which details lots of basic safety advice.
£1.25 generally but I bought this for half price from Clinton's Cards.
Yankee Tarts are available from many outlets and also online.
The Yankee website say of 'Apple and Pine Needle': 'Popular pine gets a fruity twist as crisp apple notes are combined with pine needle, cypress and cedar wood'.
Having to buy my tarts online means I do not get any preview of the aroma before they arrive - so buying new fragrances is always a bit of a hit or miss affair.
For half price I was happy to buy new fragrances to try. This tart is a seasonal one and it definitely looks Christmassy being a very dark forest green.
You can smell the tart through the wrapper and it has a unique aroma. Personally I would not say that I can smell either pine or apple - but I opened the tart and used half in my tart burner.
The smell is quite unusual in its way - it is a masculine sort of smell and is deep and sort of pine/woody. Even when being burnt and afterwards I have not detected apple at all and I would not say could smell pine either. It is not a horrid smell but is slightly like burnt wood and more masculine to my mind and also more for the winter months. It does not smell like a pine synthetic bathroom cleaner either.
Funnily enough my son walked into the kitchen and said what a nice smell - and again the next day he came in and said about the spicy smell - so obviously he likes it more than me.
This is not one I am mad about but it in not too overpowering and the smell is growing on me. Personally I do not get the 'seasonal' notes of pine and it is probably the cedar wood I am smelling.
As with other tarts this one lasts for at least the specified 8 hours as I prolong mine by using half at a time and only have it lit for a short while as the fragrance lingers on even after the tea light is blown out underneath the tart burner.
Although not pine smelling or Christmassy this is a warm and welcoming sort of smell which is mellow enough to burn in the winter months.
4 Stars - an OK aroma but not one I would bother buying again.
===Would I Recommend?===
Summary: A woody smell but no pine or apple can be detected.
