I know there are so many Yankee Candle reviews of late and I have reframed from reviewing them for some time now. However I wanted to review one of my favourite ones.
Yankee Candle - Black Cherry Wax Tart:
'The absolutely delicious sweetness of rich, ripe black cherries'
Ever since reading a Yankee review some time last year I was intrigued by the wax tarts and wanted to purchase some. I googled my closest Yankee Candle store and off I went to Birmingham, there was a place just off Snow Hill Train station which sadly is no longer. I purchased my tart burner and several tarts to start me off.
One of my first ones I tried was Black Cherry and still today is one of my favourites from their wax tart range. Most of you will know what a wax tart is but just in case, it is a wax shape, there is no wick like a candle has. It is for use in oil burners however much safer than burning oil. In the past when I have used scented oils they spit out and dry up causing an awful smell.
With these wax tarts you don't have any of that, you still need to be safe the wax will get hot and after all you are using a flame. The tart comes wrapped, so you need unwrap it before use, I have found some of them to be rather stiff and have needed scissors or a knife to open it. Once opened, place on top of your oil burner also making sure it is in a safe place. Light your tea light candle under it and away you go!
I find it takes around ten minutes for the wax to fully melt, but soon as you open the packet on this one the aroma starts to circulate around your room. The scent just intensifies when it is melting, so it doesn't take long for your room to be fully fragrant. So lighting this, popping a movie on and drinking a cup of cherry tea I'm in heaven!
The cherry scent I personally feel isn't all that artificial, I find it to be sweet, very fruity but not over powering in anyway. But this is me talking after all and I love cherries! It states that it will remain scented for up to eight hours burning time. Which I feel is right, sometimes I can get a little more or a little scent I guess this is down to how much scent goes in when it is being manufactured.
Price and Availability:
There are a select amount of stores which stock Yankee Candle products so it is worth keeping an eye. I personally choose to purchase mine over the internet in packs. I find this much cheaper, plus I always have to order some for my sister and mother too!
RRP is around £1.25 but you can certainly get them cheaper from the likes of yankeedoodle.co.uk and direct from the Yankee Candle web site.
Yep, so here is yet another Yankee Candle fan! This one for me is gorgeous and I just love it, it is noticeable but doesn't over power the room. Well worth the money I feel, and I would certainly recommend this one to all!
Five out of five stars
Thank you for reading.
