      Another nice scent

      ==Yankee Candle Hydrangea Wax Tart==

      Yankee Candles are a very popular scent candle range that are sold in a good deal of places world wide. The candles range from extra large to the tiny wax tarts which are the smallest and most affordable way to see if you like a particular scent in the range. I have been trying far too many of the wax tarts out of late and have quite a collection of half used ones (I don't use a whole one in one go). This time however instead of buying a new tart I found this hydrangea fragrance =d one in my mums drawer of her dresser (don't tell her I have "borrowed" it).

      This hydrangea fragrance has actually been discontinued now from Yankee but you can still pick up this scent from places such as eBay if you hunt around for it. The RRP of any tart is around £1.05 p depending on where you buy it from and I am able to buy them down my local jewellers for a bargain price of 90 p so its well worth looking round.

      The wax tarts weigh in at 22 grams and have a full burn time of around 8 hours. The idea of the tart is that they are placed in an oil burner dish and a tea light lit underneath. The tart will melt in the bowl and release the scented essential oils that are infused with the wax.

      The tart doesn't take too long to melt although I must caution you if you are using a non-Yankee candle burner that regular burners may not fit the entire tart melted in them. This is why I tend to use half or less of the tart at a time so that the wax won't melt over and make a mess.

      Using the tart is easy and once the small amount of plastic wrapping has been removed you are able to melt down the flower shaped tart in the burner. As soon as the tart begins to melt the scents of the tart are released into the air and with this blue hydrangea scent it is one I really like and one that doesn't smell as "old lady" like as I initially thought it would (sorry mum). The smell is definitely a flowery one so if this isn't your preferred scent then I would stick to another type of fragrance. It is strong yet not over powering and the notes of lilac and vanilla are also infused in the tart.

      The tart is a really nice one and remind me of fresh summer walks in the countryside and this can't be a bad thing. The scent that is released into the room is spread throughout my whole flat quickly and very nicely whilst even after the candle underneath the burner has been blown out the scent still stays lingering for a short while after.

      The floral scent is really pleasing and although perhaps still not my favourite Yankee candle fragrance is a really nice one and I am glad that I have tried it. I probably won't hunt this one down again as there are so many different ones to try but I would say if you haven't tried this then it is worth giving it a go.

      I feel a score of 4 out of 5 stars and a recommendation is well deserved. Another great scent from Yankee Candles!


      I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
