Cherry Blossom is offered by Yankee Candle in different formats including candle jars, votives and tealights. The best, purse-friendly way to experience this scent is by purchasing a wax tart. For those unfamiliar with Yankee Candle, a wax tart is a disc of wax which contains natural extracts of scent. It can be placed whole or halved in a tart burner to be melted and Yankee promise at least 8 hours of scent for your home.
The Cherry Blossom wax tart will certainly appeal more to us females being a baby pink colour. The tart comes tightly wrapped in clear plastic and the label adorning the packaging illustrates cherry blossoms. Yankee describe this scent as 'A rite of Spring..vibrantly distinctive cherry blossoms with notes of bergamot and sandalwood.
Cherry Blossom wax tart is available online from stores such as www.yankeescents.4.com and Amazon. It can also be purchased on the highstreet from Yankee Candle stockists. Expect to pay between £1.00 and £1.20 per 22g tart.
Knowing my love of all things related to Yankee Candle, one of my reviewing friends sent me a Cherry Blossom wax tart a short while ago. I feel she made the right choice as at the time, I was feeling incrediby low and it was intended to cheer me up so was very much appreciated. Whilst I have sampled hundreds of Yankee tarts over the past few years, I normally shy away from the floral scents on offer and favour sweet, spicy or fruity scents. Having now tried Cherry Blossom, I can confirm that I am addicted!
The wax tarts are definitely the best way to experience all that Yankee Candle has to offer but without breaking the bank. Cherry Blossom is a beautifully presented wax tart and in solid form, has a lovely, sweet floral scent. I have a deep dish on my tart burner so tend to pop a whole tart in at the one time. The tart melts quickly to form a pool of pink liquid and the scent of Cherry Blossom starts to filter around my living room and travel into my hallway and kitchen at quite a quick pace. Any homely odours are quickly eliminated as the scent rises and it does encourage a welcoming ambience around my home which I like.
Being a floral scent, I would have immediately assumed this would be only suited to melting during the day as a light scent. To me, the scent actually comes across as having a beautiful depth without being too heavy or overpowering. This makes it a more versatile scent that could be used day or night and still not seem out of place. I chose to use it during a few warmer evenings we had. There is no mistaking the stunning Cherry Blossom scent here - it is very natural. The scent is quite fresh courtesy of the bergamot. It really brightens up my home and carries a delicate yet noticeable floral/sweet smell.
After a short while, the scent of Cherry Blossom changes a little. The bergamot takes a back seat and whilst the cherry blossom stays in control. the sandalwood changes the scent to a warm, relaxing scent. The sandalwood compliments the cherry blossom just as well as the bergamot and the overall scent flows nicely from fresh, floral and sweet to warm, sweet and a hint of floral. The scent lingers in the air for a good 45 mins after each tealight goes out and the scent immediately comes alive when the solid wax is melted again.
Whilst melting this tart, I was pleased with the overall scent and feel it offered just the right amount of strength given the different scents that were blended together. I melted this over the course of a few days and found that I received around 12 hours of scent from my tart which I feel makes it excellent value for money. This is quite a special scent as not only does it make my home smell lovely, it also relaxed me in a way and it was definitely the right choice to brighten my mood.
Highly recommended :)
