Yankee Candle Fruit Fusion
Advantages: Smells great, really does last 8 hours
With my first Amazon gift voucher I recieved recently I purchased the thing at the top of my wish list - a Yankee candle tart burner... I really wanted one after seeing all the hype about them on reviews and distantly remembering my mums!
With my burner I recieved 5 different scented tarts - but to be honest after smelling these ones I don't think they were ones I would choose to buy personally as I like sweet delicious scents...
On my next trip to town I popped into Clintons and picked up a couple more tarts - After a quick sniff at the tart the Fruit Fusion tart this was one I selected as it was different to the others and was more my kind of tart.
The tarts are wrapped in transparant plastic which can easily be opened using your finger nails or snipping with a pair of scissors.
About the tart
The tart is bright orange in colour, it is made from wax and is round with ridged edges like all the tarts in the Yankee range.
The front label states the tart is from the Yankee Candle range, in the background it then has the image of different types of of fruit which are red orange and green in colour. It then advises you that the tart is made from pure natural extracts.
The back label then gives you your usual warning symbols for what not to do with this product ie . keep out of reach of children ect.
The label also confirms the tart weight is 22g and total burning time is 8 hours.
How to use
You literally pop the tart on the top of your burner, light your candle and put underneith and it starts to melt within 5 minutes and you get the first wafts of scent from the tart. Within 20 minutes it is melted completly and the smell fills the room.
As well as melting a tart on its own, I have read you can mix tart scents to create more unique smells - you simply break off smaller bits of tart and melt together. More information on mixing and ideas can be found on the Yankee website.
Before you open the plastic you can smell a light delicious fruit scent and when you are using the tart in your burner it smells to me like StarBurst weeks - absolutly mouthwatering. It does give you a lovely scent for a full 8 hours burning time as the packaging confirms.
This is only my second tart to burn (another review to follow soon for Kitchen Spice) and I have to say so far this is my favourite out of the two.
My visitors noticed the smell coming into the house and commented on how nice it was - not overpowering but really delicious and light - not overpowering at all.
My only quarm is having to pay the full price for the tart in Clintons - £1.20 - unlike some you often see on offer but even at full price its a great tart and I would recommend to all.
