Yankee Candle Black Cherry
Advantages: A lovely smell
Disadvantages: The large jars melt unevenly
I received my first Yankee Candle jar as a gift this Christmas, and the scent was this Black Cherry. The official description of this scent is "the delicious sweetness of rich, ripe black cherries". This Yankee scent is available in the various formats - the wax tart as well as different size candles. I received a large jar in this scent.
The glass jar itself has a picture of lovely juicy looking red cherries on the front. I think this picture is really appealing and eye-catching, and it will definitely stand out to anyone who likes the smell of cherries.
Through the clear glass jar you can see the colour of the wax candle inside - it is a gorgeous, deep red colour which gives the impression that it will provide a rich scent. When I lifted the lid off the candle I found a black wick inside that was long enough to be lit easily.
When I first lit this candle I found that the cherry scent filled my room within minutes. Within about half an hour or so, the scent had spread through the whole downstairs floor of my home. The scent is fruity and sweet and really does smell of cherries. It is a very natural smell which I love, as I hate anything that smells too artificial. I think that this is a warming scent that gives a lovely ambience to your room. I feel that this scent is perfect for cold winter evenings. It is not overpowering or sickening in any way.
To distinguish the Yankee candle jar you simply place the glass lid back on, which causes the flame to go out but does not allow smoke to escape. After having it lit one evening I made the mistake of just blowing the candle out, and found that the smell of the smoke ruined the lovely cherry scent that had filled my room, so I would always recommend using the lid to extinguish.
One complaint I do have with this large Yankee candle jar is that it burns quite unevenly, and around the wick area is becoming quickly more shallow than around the outside of the jar, which will mean it will eventually be difficult to light. A friend advised me that you need to leave the candle lit for at least 6 hours each time to allow the wax to harden evenly once you extinguish the candle, however even after trying this it is still uneven.
All in all I think the "black cherry" is a gorgeous scent that will appeal to all, both male and female. As well as smelling great it looks amazing sitting in any room. I give this scent 5* along with my full recommendation. Thanks for reading/rating and I hope you found my review useful.
