Advantages: Absolutely stunning and long lasting aroma
Disadvantages: None for me
My life these days seems to be full of stresses and as a consequence, frequently takes its toll on me. A few weeks ago I received a parcel from an extremely thoughtful friend, which contained several pampering gifts and as I have been feeling pretty low just lately, her kindness helped to lift my spirits. In amongst the delightful packages was a 22g Yankee Candle tart that was new to me, so I was eager to try it out and this review discusses my experience with using Camomile Tea.
I adore the appearance of the products belonging to Yankee Candle, particularly the 3½ cm in diameter wax candle tarts with their attractive fluted edge, which reminds me of a jam tart. Whilst I'm not familiar with drinking camomile tea, I am aware of the aroma with some of the toiletries I've used, so was intrigued to learn of the fragrance that the slightly off white coloured wax would produce. If you are familiar with the brand you will be aware of their colourful and very eye-catching labels, which always depict the candle aroma. As the fragrance would suggest, the label displays an image of a glass cup and saucer with the cup almost filled to the brim with camomile tea. I find the overall appearance of the label to be both tranquil and calming, which perfectly represents the aroma within.
On removing the tightly wrapped transparent packaging, the uplifting aroma is immediately evident. As the bowl of my candle burner isn't large enough for burning an entire tart I always snap the wax into two pieces, which also enables me to obtain twice as much usage. Within just a few minutes of placing the tart into the bowl of my oil burner with a burning tea light situated below, I was able to witness the very calming fragrance of camomile, which delicately filtered from the bowl. Its calming and dreamy aroma was soon infused with a very slight sweetness, which I learned to be honey and both scents worked in harmony to produce the most relaxing aroma. A few minutes later I was able to witness a delicate citrusy zest, which worked in perfect harmony with the other fragrances. I discovered that the wax also contains tea leaves, but to be honest, I was unable to witness the scent.
Despite camomile having a fairly delicate aroma, the delightful combination of scents produced a fairly intense aroma, which was sufficient to entirely fill my living room as well as the adjoining rooms in the downstairs of my home. The combination of scents were very natural and assisted to create a calming environment, which is perfect for winding down in the evenings after a busy day at work. I burn my candle tarts for periods of approximately two hours and after distinguishing the tea light, the scent beautifully lingered for half an hour or so before it faded away. Yankee Candle claim that their wax tarts will offer fragrance for a period of up to eight hours and as I had snapped my tart in half I was able to achieve almost 16 hours of scent, which is excellent value for money.
Camomile Tea is another stunning scent from Yankee Candle and I have since repurchased a few of the wax tarts. You can purchase this fragrance from all good Yankee Candle stockists from £1.00. I would previously purchase a lot of my tarts and jars from Clintons, but for the past few months they have had no tarts in the Cardiff store and when I've enquired the staff have informed me that Yankee Candle are no longer producing them, which is obviously not the case. Consequently, I'm unsure why my nearest Clintons no longer stocks them.
Due to the reasons discussed above, Camomile Tea receives a high recommendation from me together with five stars.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
