Yankee Candle Clean Cotton
Advantages: fresh and clean smelling, price, quality, staying power
Disadvantages: basic compared to other Yankee scents
Clean Cotton is one the 'regular' scents available from candle company Yankee Candle. It can be experienced in different formats including candle jars, votives, tealights and wax tarts. I will be reviewing the wax tart.
A wax tart is a disc of scented wax. It should be melted in an appropriate tart burner and Yankee Candle promise 8 hours of scent per tart. The Clean Cotton tart is a fresh white colour and wrapped in clear plastic. The label adorning the wrapper illustrates washing out on the clothes line.
The official description of this scent is 'sun-dried cotton combined with green notes, white flowers and a hint of lemon'.
~Price and Availability~
Clean Cotton wax tart is priced from £1.00-£1.25 depending on where you buy it. Online stockists include www.yankeescents4.com, Amazon and eBay UK. Highstreet shops which stock Yankee Candle are likely to stock this scent.
In a bid to sample all the scents that Yankee Candle has to offer, I recently made a purchase of some of the more regular scents available. I favour the wax tarts for my initial purchase as buying the jars can be costly and there is always the chance that one may not like the actual scent. I put off buying Clean Cotton for a while as despite liking the smell of freshly dried clothing, it seemed a little bland sounding when compared to the more distinguished scents that Yankee offer.
I would say that Clean Cotton is best suited to using during the day as it is definetely not a cosy, warming evening scent which I could relax with melting away in the background. Clean Cotton is great at eliminating odours (kitchen etc) in the home and as my tart began to melt, the scent lifted up from my tart burner in my alcove and cleansed the air. The clean, refreshing aroma of Clean Cotton is strong enough to filter around my living room, kitchen and into my hallway within a short space of time.
It wouldn't be enough just to say 'it smells like laundry powder/detergent' as you can buy lots of different scented laundry products! To me, the scent is clean, fresh and delicately floral. It reminds me of the distinct aroma of towels and bedding (or anything made from cotton) blowing on the washing line outside and surrounded by some flowers. If I sit near to my tart burner, I catch subtle undertones of citrussy lemon which enhances the refreshing aroma. The overall scent of Clean Cotton is inoffensive and a pleasant, airy fresh scent.
There isn't much more that can be said to be honest as this is a basic yet classic scent. The scent of Clean Cotton lingers in the air and makes my home smell clean - perfect for using before you have guests coming but you don't when them to know you have been burning candles or melting tarts! It would also be ideal for using when you want that clean, fresh air scent but it is too cold to have the windows and doors open for long. I would estimate that I received around 10 hours of noticeable scent from this tart so I was pleased with the quality and staying power.
Clean Cotton isn't a scent I would choose for regular use as I prefer fruity or spicy scents but it is definitely a lovely scent to have lingering in my home. It
Thanks for reading :)
