Yankee Candle Kitchen Spice
Advantages: Lasts as long as it should
Disadvantages: Horrible cinnamon smell!
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 - and Kitchen Spice was one of them... At the time I was opening the delivery I happened to be in the kitchen and was dying to try out my new burner... So I decided on this one due to the name as I would be leaving this burner in there whilst testing it!
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 a brown/dark red colour - the tart is round with ridged edges and has the Yankee Candle logo stamped on to the tart.
The front label states the tart is from the Yankee Candle range, in the background it then has the image of orange slices and spices. 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.
I didn't sniff this tart before opening the packaging but when the tart was out before the melting process it does smell very strongly of cinnamon. I can't smell anything else in this tart.
This was my first Yankee tart to burn and I have to say I was not the most impressed as I am not a great fan of cinnamon smells - I prefer sweet light smells. This tart scent tends to hit you as soon as you walk into a room and in my opinion its not a pleasant one.
My dad popped in when it had been burning for a couple of hours and commented on how strong the smell was but he also told me he liked it. Each to their own - if you like cinnamon smells you will probably like this but I won't be buying this again.
I won't fault on it lasting 8 hours though - it definetly does what its supposed to - I just hate the smell!!
