I haven't wrote any new Yankee reviews in a while but fear not - I have been sampling the delights of a new batch of scents at home! I purchased Berry Bramble from eBay about 6 weeks ago now and have recently got around to using this one.
On removing the tart from the wrapper, the scent of mixed berries is instantly noticeable. Within 15 minutes of placing this in my tart burner and lighting a tea light underneath, a gorgeous scent started to filter out from the bowl and travel around my living room before making its way into my hall way. Berry Bramble is a highly scented wax tart and is full of flavour.
As you may know, I like to burn tarts to leave my home smelling lovely and welcoming as well as take over cooking smells etc. Berry Bramble fits my criteria perfectly. I would say this is the perfect scent for the warmer weather in my opinion as it is fresh and sweet. That being said, whilst melting the tart, I couldn't help but notice the deep fruity undertones which would be perfect for the colder months too - very versatile!
If you are a fan of berry scents (well you would have to be to initially consider purchasing Berry Bramble) then you will appreicate this one. I love it to be honest and it offers my home a welcoming ambience. The combination of berries used is perfect and the scent is very naturally presented. It is sweet but not sickly sweet due to the fresh 'ripeness' of the berries.
The strawberry scent is the most prominent and adds a gorgeous, juicy sweetness to the scent. The blueberries don't add much to the scent but I can notice them if I sit close to the tart burner. The raspberries add a sharp depth to the sweet freshness of Berry Bramble and the combination works very well to create a fresh, fruity scent with bursts of sharp sweetness which runs deep into the scent.
Berry Bramble is a mouthwatering, refreshing scent with a tempting sweetness. It reminds me of opening a bowl of fresh, berry fruit salad - that initial smell tempting you to have a taste of something delicious. It lasts well too - I burned it across 3 seperate occasions (approx 9 hours) before the scent started to fade a little. I would recommend trying the wax tart before splashing out on a jar.
Overall a great, feel-good scent which fills my home with ripened fruit and recommended by myself.
Thanks for reading :)
