=Yankee Candle Paradise Spice=
This was another one of my set of Yankee tarts that I had for mothers day.
=Price and Availability=
My daughter brought this one from eBay and paid £1.50 for it, but you can purcashe Yankee candles from retailers such as Clintons, eBay, Amazon to name a few, and price, generally for a wax tart is between 99p and £1.50 depending on the location.
=The Wax Tart=
The tart comes on a see though wrapper, with a label on the front which tells us what it is, who made it and this is accompanied by a picture of slices of oranges, a banana and a star anise. On the sticker on the bottom this has details regarding burning the candle, and that it has a 8 hour burn time, contact details for Yankee and the weight of the tart, which is 22grams
The see through wrapper is not the easiest to remove, I usually use some sissors to cut through this.
The tart is a round shape and has a fluted edge.
The tart is cream in colour.
I break my tart into half so I get twice the use from one tart, pop the tart in the top of the oil burner, and light a tealight in the bottom. Once the heat of the tealight hits the tart it starts to melt into a pool of hot liquid wax. At this point the aroma really starts coming into it's own.
Yankee say that each tart gives 8 hours of burning, I usually light mine later in the evening, I call it my relax and down time. I usually burn the tart for 2 hours, bit even after I have blown the tealight out you can still smell the fragrance. I usually get 4 sets of 2 hour burning from half a tart.
I seem to have skirted around the subject of the fragrance until now, it is lovely. The mix of the fragrances just blend together, it is like having you own personal fruit bowl floating around in the air.
From the bananas, the sweetness of the oranges, the cinnamon from the star anise, I even smell tones of coconut and vanilla within this tart.
I really do find this long lasting, as in the morning there is still a faint smell of the tart that has been burnt.
=To Sum up=
If I had to sum this tart up in three words they would be "Refreshing, Invigorating, Tropical".
=Would I recommend it=
With my heart and soul I would recommend this tart, in fact I ordered myself another 5 of this fragrance, as I loved it so much.
refreshing and invigorating for me!
