Yankee Candle Early Sunrise
Advantages: strong scent, lovely lemony freshness
Disadvantages: took a while to fill the room
I bought a wax tart in Yankee Candle's Early Sunrise fragrance simply because they were on a special offer of 77p in Boundary Mill, an outlet store not far from where we live. I did of course, have a sniff of it and liked the fragrance, but I didn't think it was a stand out scent and not one I would have gone out of my way to purchase had it not been for the price reduction.
For those of you not familiar with Yankee Candle, I should explain that they produce candles in an array of fragrances. You can buy wax filled jars or tumblers in a selection of scents, as well as tealights, votive candles and the wax tarts which is what I purchased. The wax tarts should be melted in a tart burner under the flame of a tealight, which can be purchased from Yankee and tend to cost from £5 upwards.
The Early Sunrise fragrance is a pale blue in colour with a landscape scene on the label. The official description of this scent is 'A new day dawns crisp and fresh in this clean lemony citrus scent with hints of ginger and tea.'
When unwrapping the tart I was surprised at how citrusy it smelled, as this wasn't really something I had picked up on when the tart was in the wrapper. There was a very distinctive lemon scent, with a hint of orange.
After lighting the tealight I found that it took quite some time before the scent of this tart started to filter around the room, which was surprising, given the intensity of it before the tea light was lit. The smell was very fresh and summery and reminded me of another Yankee Candle fragrance, Island Spa. In my opinion there is something quite 'sea-side' about the scent, which reminds me of the beach. The lemon really comes out, but it's a really nice lemony fragrance and doesn't smell anything at all like a cleaning product as some lemon fragranced products can.
Each tart is designed to last 8 hours and I felt that this estimate was about right.
As mentioned. I paid just 77p for this in the sale, but a list of RRP's and burn times is below:
Wax Tarts - Burn time 8 hours - £1.10
Votives - Burn time up to 15 hours - £1.60
Small Jar - Burn time 25-40 hours - £7.45
Medium Jar - Burn time 65-60 hours - £15.45
Large Jar - Burn time 110-150 hours - £18.45
I buy mine from Collectables, Boundary Mill, Clinton's Cards or online at www.yankeedoodle.co.uk
To conclude, I was surprised at just how much I loved this candle. I wasn't overly taken with the scent whilst in the wrapper, but once unwrapped and burning I absolutely loved it. If you're looking for a fresh, summery candle with strong citrus tones, then I would definitely recommend giving Early Sunrise a try.
Summary: Great for citrus lovers
