Yankee Candle offer a huge range of beautiful smelling candles and other treats for the home. Fluffy Towels is a scent which Yankee offer as part of their regular range of scents and can be experienced in different formats. The more expensive options are the candle jars and tumblers whilst those who simply want to sample a scent would be best to opt for the votives or wax tarts.
A wax tart is a disc of solid wax which is infused with pure and natural scent extracts. The tart (or part of the tart) should be placed in the bowl of a tart burner with a small tealight underneath. Once melted, Yankee state that there will be at least 8 hours of scent from each 22g tart and it can be re-used until the scent is completely gone.
The Fluffy Towels wax tart is white in colour and very clean looking. It is tightly wrapped and features a label illustrating white towels and some flowers. Yankee describe this scent as 'the fresh scent of clean towels warm from the dryer with notes of lemon, apple, lavender and lily'.
Fluffy Towels wax tart can be bought from local Yankee stockists and online from stores such as www.yankeescents4.com, Amazon and www.yankeedoodle.co.uk. Expect to pay between £1.00 and £1.25 per 22g tart.
Despite being a self-confessed Yankee Candle addict, I have only recently gotten around to sampling the more popular scents that they offer. I bought my Fluffy Towels wax tart as part of a lot of tarts and was quite looking forward to trying it out. I always buy a wax tart before splashing out on the expensive jars as they can work out costly if you don't really like the scent.
This beautifully presented wax tart in solid form is quite strongly scented and very fresh smelling. I like to place a full tart in the deep bowl of my burner to experience the full scent that a tart has to offer and this one is no exception. It is perfectly suitable for melting in a kitchen, bathroom, hallway or livingroom and I choose the latter. The tarted melted quickly and within 10 minutes, a subtle scent began to filter around. Within 25 minutes, a much more prominent scent had filled my livingroom and could be witnessed in other areas of my home. It never overpowered but was noticeable.
Fluffy Towels is a gorgeous scent which is suitable for using all year around. I personally chose to use this one during the day as it is quite a bright, refreshing scent which seemed too uplifting for a relaxing evening. I prefer warmer scents in the evening anyway. Fluffy Towels lingers at a pleasant level of strength and masks any homely odours. It is perfect for melting whilst cleaning my home as it enhances the clean, fresh feeling and takes over any cleaning fluid smells which I appreciate.
The scent of Fluffy Towels differs to the Clean Cotton scent that Yankee offers. The fresh and clean scent which flows from the tart burner perfectly reflects this scents title - it literally smells like soft, slightly warm towels which are just out the tumble drier. The effect wouldn't be the same had the towels been dried outside. There is something quite comforting about this scent which I really like. It is completely natural smelling and rather delicate.
The undertones of Fluffy Towels reminds me of a soft scented fabric conditioner. I could imagine wrapping myself in a large bath sheet, freshly laundered and dried. The delicate undertones offer a beautiful backdrop the clean towel scent. I can detect subtle floral notes which have a calming influence thanks to the lavender included. The lavender note isn't very strong but surges through occasionally taking a slight edge of the freshness.
Fluffy Towels is a lot more appealing that I originally thought it would be. It is a well balanced scent which lingers in the air for a good half hour after the tealight has gone out. At times, this scent reminds me of freshly dried bedding which has been washed with Comfort Pure fabric conditioner. I would say I experienced 10 hours of scent from one tart which is excellent. Overall I can highly recommend the Fluffy Towels wax tart.
