*Yankee Candle Wax Tart Black Cherry*
I brought mine from Boundary Mills for 70-90p, which I was presently surprised at, given that they have an expensive reputation. It has about a 6 cm diameter and is approx. half an inch thick just to give you an Idea of the size.
You can also buy them from special candle shops, and the shopping channel QVC, where they tend to have scents that aren't sold elswhere and do offers for multiple candles/ tart sets.
They can also be purchased from Smart Ideas, although they are quite a bit more expensive from here.
First of All I'm going to run through the...
-They have a lovely smell when being burned.
-You can buy small amounts of different scents, so you can burn them and get a feel for which you like the most.
-It is a quality wax tart and lasts alot longer than general candles of the same size as the tart. According to Yankee, if you let one tart melt non stop until it is completely gone, then the tart will last 8 hours, however, I have used one tart on and off and so far it has been burning for longer than that, and there is still a sizeable amount left in the burner.
-The tarts can be broken up and melted in small stages, so you can save some for another occasion.
-Unlike other cheaper candles, when you melt the tart, it makes the room smell of the fragrance, when others do not, as well as smelling nice when it is not being melted.
-It fragrances your house without giving off an artificial synthetic frangrance that electric air fresheners do. It gives off more of an authentic scent, it also lasts longer! Making it cheaper pound for pound.
-There is such a vast range of scents that yankee create. Obviously there are the normal scents, such as Lavender, Vanilla etc. but there are some more unusual ones, such Clean Cotton, and Baby Powder as well as fragrances for every season and occasion.
*Now for the downsides.*
To be honest, there aren't many, and any that there are aren't really a reason to not buy these tarts.
- They are a bit more expensive than your usual scents etc. but this is not like other candles/oils, the actually fill the room with scent.
- Note, that you will need a tart burner for these. They are similar to oil burners where a tealight candle heats up an upper surface that the oil is on. In this case, the solid tart would be placed there, where it would gradually melt. Yankee also sell these in different styles, or you can just buy a regular one for a few pounds, such as from Wilkos
*Life ain't a bowl of Cherries you know..*
I am not the best at explaining scents, however I can say that when I first smelt this wax tart, I was shocked at how authentic it smelt. You got the general smell of sweet fruit,
but not only that, you could smell the scent of the cherrys coming through just after. I apologise for how awful I am at explaining this, but I would highly recommend that you go and smell a few scents for yourself!
My mom first got me into buying Yankee candles when she ordered some small votives from QVC. The aroma they created were lovely, and so as
I have gotten older I have started buying scents that appeal to me. I have a range of wax tarts, votive candles, and tealight candles, as well as small and large glass jars.
There is a Yankee candle for every person and occasion, due to the range of smells, and type of candle that they sell.
I would definately suggest trying out a few of these wax tarts yourself, especially if you are considering trying Yankee candles, as you can decide on what scents you prefer the most, without forking out a fortune on the full size article of the candle.
I give this wax tart a full 5, due to the brilliant price of it, and authenticity of the scent, and the great melting time and longevity of the fragrance.
Summary: Great smell, good price, top notch candle!
