Yankee Candle Country Lemonade

A few months ago we celebrated our wedding anniversary and we went away for a little break to celebrate in style. While there we visited an Edinburgh Woollen Mill and they had a 'fragrance of the month' Yankee candle. Now I have a vast array of candles at home that I am always trying to remember to light on a daily basis so I was quite restrained and picked up one wax tart and one sampler size candle of this 'country lemonade' fragrance.
In addition to the wax tarts and sampler size candles you can also purchase small, medium & large glass jars too in any of the several hundred fragrances available from Yankee Candle. There are literally hundreds of places to purchase these Yankee Candles from and I always seem to find them when I am out shopping. Prices start from around £1.20 for a wax tart right up to around £18.00 for a large glass jar that burns for approximately 150 hours.
My review is based on my use of a wax tart and I always use my wax tarts in my Yankee Candle petal wax tart burner. All you need to do is unwrap the wax tart, drop it in to the top of the holder and then light a plain tea light underneath. As the tea light burns the wax tart melts and fragrance is released. I use tea lights that last 4 hours and therefore I use two per use of a wax tart. A wax tart lasts approximately 8 hours before the fragrance disappears. The petal holder that I use is specially designed to allow you to let the wax tart solidify before removing it and replacing it for another one. This is ideal for me as I can change my wax tarts before they have run out and use lots of different fragrances.
When I opened up this wax tart I could smell a lovely lemon fragrance, it was quite strong, without being too overpowering. I adore citrus flavours and that is what sold me on buying this scent, also I could detect the flavour through the wrapping of the wax tart which is always nice before purchasing something. When I first lit the tea light the fragrance that was released was lovely and strong. It was a nice burst of freshness in my home and it was detectable throughout the various rooms in my home. This is a very lemon filled scent, it isn't bitter and it isn't too sour and yet it is lovely and strong. After an hour or so this is slightly less noticeable but it is still filled with fragrance. This fragrance is lovely and sweet and not overpowering in the slightest. I've been really surprised by this scent and while it does stay through my home for several hours after use it is not sickly or headache inducing like some strong fragrances can be.
The scent of this is absolutely fantastic and this is possibly one of my favourite Yankee candle wax tarts ever! I find that the scent of this lingers around my home in a really positive way. I have had compliments on how nice this smells too and it does definitely remind me of home-made lemonade. It is strong, sweet but not overpowering. I would definitely recommend this scent and I will buy it again in the future too.
Summary: A fantastic wax tart from Yankee Candle.
