Yankee Candle Juicy Peach
Advantages: Smells fresh and fruity
Disadvantages: None for me
I'm a big fan of Yankee candles and wax tarts and regularly use them to fragrance my home. I recently bought some reduced to half price in a local shop, they were clearing them ready for the Christmassy candles and at 50p per tart I was happy to take them of their hands. One of the wax tarts I bought was Juicy Peach, one I had never tried before as I do tend to favour the floral smells.
Wax tarts as by now I'm sure most people know are little discs of oily feeling wax that you melt in a burner to release the gorgeous fragrance. They are shaped like little jam tarts with fluted edges and are approximately 5 cm's in diameter and 1 cm high. Each tart comes wrapped tightly in cellophane although you can still smell them through the wrapping giving you a good idea of what you will be getting. They also have a label on the top with a picture depicting the fragrance. My tart has a picture of peaches on it and the words Yankee Tart Wax Potpourri ( the tarts are sometimes called wax potpourri). My juicy peach wax tart is a pinky peach colour as you would expect.
To use a wax tart you do need a burner, although they can be used as they are to scent drawers or linen cupboards, a burner is the best way to get the fragrance from them. You don't have to buy a Yankee burner any make will do and they are widely available.
I decided to melt my juicy peach wax tart in the daytime, I lit a tea light in my burner on my kitchen windowsill, unwrapped the tart and popped it in the little dish. Within 15 minuets I could smell the peach fragrance travelling around my kitchen. I loved this wax tart, the peach smell is fresh and fruity, a very clean smell and as Yankee only use real fruit extracts there's nothing chemical or fake about it, it really does smell of fresh juicy peaches. As my home is open plan I find the fragrance of wax tarts soon filters around this particular wax tart left my home smelling clean and fresh. Juicy peach in my opinion is definitely a daytime fragrance.
Yankee state their wax tarts will give up to 8 hours of continuous fragrance and on the whole I would agree with this. Personally I find it best to melt the wax tart for n hour at a time as the smell lasts for a good while. I always leave the wax in the burner to set and then another day just re melt it. You can do this as many times as you like until all the fragrance has gone.
I have been pleased with the juicy peach wax tart, although it is sold as a summer fragrance I found the smell of lovely fresh peach very uplifting when its cold and damp outside.
Wax tarts are approximately £1.00 each and can be bought at several online store, Amazon being one of them, and a few department and independent stores. If you fancy trying juicy peach but don't have a burner Yankee sell all of their fragrances in both tarts and candle form.
I would recommend juicy peach, I know its mainly a summer fragrance but the smell is lovely all year round.
