As previously mentioned in some of my other Yankee reviews I buy my products from Yankee Doodle which is a UK website seeking the Yankee products and they tend to have some really good clearance sale. During one of those times I noticed they had these Clean Cotton scented tea lights, I have had the sampler before but wasn't very impressed but I thought that perhaps these may be a little different. I decided to take the plunge and added them to my basket along with some other few bits and pieces. Delivery was only £2 and always comes packaged well with no breakages as well as being very quick.
When they arrived they came in a small box with some clean and fresh looking pictures with a clear top and front which allows you to see the tea lights inside. There are 12 in a box and even picking up the box I could smell the contents, opening the box and removing one the aroma was extremely pungent and very clean smelling, much stronger than the sampler, I now think perhaps my sampler was a little older and the scent had started to disappear. The tea lights each come in a thick plastic casing which I feel is much better than the thin metal casing of cheaper brands and it also looks much better.the wick is the perfect height and catches light extremely easily and provides a soft flame rather than a very tall one meaning its a bit safer.
The candle itself is very deep and gives a long lasting burning time, more than double what a cheaper brand does (I tested this when I had other tea lights going at the same time) meaning exceptional value for money. The aroma is extremely strong, but not overpowering and travels well around the room. It smells almost of fresh laundry which is a scent I adore and could smell all day so this was perfect for me. Even once the flame had went out the smell lingered around for a good couple of hours which I was extremely pleased with.
At £5 regular selling price these are pretty pricey but I'd be more than happy to purchase them again at the £2.50 I paid, they are definitely worth the money.
