Disadvantages: None for me at all!
The one little luxury I do like to treat myself and my home to are Yankee candle products. I like my home to smell fresh and inviting and with two hammies and a lovely cat and my liking of spicy foods I do find that air freshener doesn't always cut it.
I tend to always buy the Yankee Candle Wax tarts cos about £1.20 each they don't break my budget and this one when I spotted recently in Homebase for about a pound so I couldn't resist cos I had never even heard of it before!
This tart comes in a see through plastic wrapper and on the front of it there is a picture shown of a lovely tropical sunset and we are clearly told what it is and then on the back of it we are shown how to use the tart via diagrams, we are told that weight of it which is 32g, that we should get 8 hours burn time from it and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly stated.
Using The Tart:
Well this is a thick round, disc of very black wax with fluted edges to it and all you do to use it is to pop it into an oil burner with preferably an unscented tealight under it then the wax simply wax into a pool of liquid.
These are easy to snap if you wanted to only burn a little, you can mix the scents by popping in another piece of another tart to blend the scents, me I'm a purist and I like to burn one at time!
This is a lovely, relaxing and rather tropical scent. It really does smell of sweet and of slightly creamy coconuts in a a really natural way. it takes just a few minutes of burning of this one to get the aroma of it and I found this to burn on and off well over 8 hours though I burnt it over a few days and of course once the tealight is put out the wax hardens for use next time. I can detect a slight fragrance of vanilla to it but not too much it gets sickly for me this is just a nice and rich coconut aroma fragrance and once I extinguish it I can smell this lingering all through my large flat for a good hour or so afterwards.
I really do like this one, it isn't too much or too feminine its just really fresh and a scent that is uplifting and refreshing and I would spend a bit more and buy this in a votive or candle in the future!
Available from a variety of places such as Clinton cards, Homebase and online from Amazon and the suchlike and of course from Yankee Candle themselves!
