Yankee Candle is range of home fragrance products including candles, diffusers and sprays.
Yankee Candle have a range known as "Simply Home". These products are more common in the USA but can be sourced within the UK. Bartlett Pear is one of the Simply Home scents available. Within the UK, it can be bought in wax tart form but is available in various sized jars in the USA.
A wax tart is a small disc of fragranced wax. It should be placed into a burner and once lit, the tart will melt and release your selected scent into the air. Each tart is said to contain at least 8 hours of scent.
Bartlett Pear wax tart is shrink wrapped with a label showing some juicy, fresh pears. This particular tart is a light green colour. Yankee describe Barlett Pear as :
"Create the perfect atmosphere at home with this special fragrance! Bartlett pear fragrance envelops your home in a fruity scent".
*Amazon UK - 3 tarts for £4.99 (£3.00 p&p)
*Ebay UK - 3 tarts for £4.99 (£1.00 p&p) or 1 tart for £1.50 (75p p&p)
Another day, another Yankee Candle review. I love to buy the tarts to gain an idea of which scents I like and don't like. I recently bought several scents from a Birthdays superstore and paid £1.35 for each tart. I don't mind paying a bit more for the rarer (in the UK) scents.
This one appealed to me as I love fruity scents. It didn't smell amazing through the packaging - it was almost soap and fresh but as I unwrapped it, a sweet pear scent tingled my nose. I popped it into my burner and within 15minutes, it had melted to a dark green pool of wax. I found Bartlett Pear to be ideal for burning during the day time due to its fresh aroma.
~Pears In My Livingroom~
At first, Bartlett Pear is quite a powerful scent and sort of "bursts" out from my burner. It is intense and very refreshing with a strong sweetness as it filters around my livingroom and faintly disappears into my hallway. The strength of this tart isn't consistent and the scent seemed to drop out and disappear for a short while before becoming noticeable again. For this reason, I feel it would be best to burn this one only for an hour or so at a time and then allow it to go solid.
I like pear as a scent and I feel it is captured nicely in this wax tart. When the scent is at its peak, it is beautifully juicy and very refreshing. It is lively and brightens up any room. I find it ideal to burn when I am cleaning or doing other chores around our home. It over rides cleaning product scents and generally freshens up my home. It isn't too heavy or sickly but is a sort of watery, fruity scent.
The scent is different close up and has more of a sweetie type scent with a sharpness - slightly bitter. I keep trying to put my finger on which sweetie it resembles but cannot place it. It is definetly one with a hard shell and runny, juicy centre and almost has an apple undertone to it. My fiance thinks it smells like Jolly Ranchers though! I suppose the scent of this tart would differ depending on how big the room is you are burning it in. It would be too overpowering for my bathroom but is beautiful in my livingroom.
I like Bartlett Pear - it is a pleasant, fruity sweet scent but it isn't anything special. I like candles with a bit more impact so I wouldn't go out of my way to source this one again. When burning for an hour each time, I got around 8hours of scent before the scent turned too subtle to be noticed so Yankee were accurate with their time.
Thanks for reading x
Summary: nice enough..
