*~*~*~*~ Yankee Tart ~ Black Cherry ~*~*~*~*
Having heard all the hype about Yankee Candles over the last couple of years I have finally jumped on the bandwagon and started off with a few tarts in different scents. The scent I am reviewing is ~
*~ Black Cherry ~*
Yankee Candle Tarts are a small waxy disc which hold an incredible amount of scent, they come wrapped in a clear celeophene wrapper with a sticker on top with the scent's name and a small photo, underneath is another sticker with the barcode. These tarts are basically candles with no wicks, therefore meaning they need to be put in a burner.
I have been buying Tarts from ebay and when they arrive in their package I instantly know what it is as I can smell the strong scent through the packaging! Prices on ebay do vary but I have found this to be the cheapest way of buying them, you can sometimes find tarts for as little as 75p with free p&p.
Another good place to buy them so I have heard is www.yankeedoodle.co.uk although I have not bought from here myself.
There's a multitude of scents to choose from and so far I have Black Cherry, Christmas Tree, Cherries on Snow, Baby Powder, Crisp Linen and Tropical Fruit.
Having bought a few different scents I chose to burn this one first. To use these you place the tart in an oil burner or you can like I do, break the tart if it's too big for your burner! I break the tart and burn approx one quarter of the disc at a time, I find this has sufficiant scent to travel through the whole downstairs of my house. I don't have a Yankee burner just a pretty white and silver square shaped burner from a local market. Yankee burners seem quite highly priced but I only paid £4.99 for mine.
The scent before burning this tart is delicious, it really is good enough to eat, although I wouldn't recommend doing this! I broke the tart and added it to the 'dish' part of the burner and lit a tea light and popped in underneath, I didn't really know how long it would take to melt the tart or when the fragrance would come but it was within five minutes.
The scent is really warm and fresh and it travels around the house giving everywhere this clean, fresh scent.
I knew I would like this scent as when I was younger Black Cherry body spray from the Body Shop was a favourite of mine and I generally love anything berry scented.
The smell when lit is very much like when you sniff the tart and not much scent is lost, by this I mean that whilst holding something close to your nose for a good sniff is going to smell quite strong and you would expect it to be less so whilst being burned, well that was what I firdt thought anyway! But alas the scent is just as delicious either way.
I have been keeping the tarts in my drawers with my clothing and I have noticed that the clothes do pick the scent up somewhat, I did also make the mistake of stacking my tarts together when I first got them and I noticed that the scents all mingled together to give a not so great scent, luckily they were all fine when I separated them!
I am now a true yankee fan and doubt I'll be going back to normal scented candles anytime soon. These bring a brilliant scent to the house and is much more efficiant than spraying air freshner around. I find leaving my living room door open will allow me to smell this tart from the top of the stairs which is a fair distance.
Black Cherry is a favourite of mine already and this is only the first one for me to burn, so no doubt I will have very many favourites by the time I sample them all!!
I am no longer a stranger to Yankee and I am very glad of this! Why I didn't try them sooner I'll never know!
*~ 5/5 ~*
