Advantages: Smells absolutely stunning and high level of strength
I've been making purchases from the American brand Yankee Candle for more years than I care to remember and as a result, have spent a small fortune. Whilst I have a few firm favourites, which I will repeatedly buy, I cannot resist trying out their new fragrances with this review discussing Pink Dragon Fruit in the 22g wax tart format.
I would previously opt for the medium sized glass jars, but due to their cost of approximately £16 - £18 dependant upon the retailer, I now tend to purchase the 5½ cm circular wickless tarts with their pretty fluted edges, which enable me to try out a different fragrance at a fraction of the price. Consequently, if I'm not keen on the aroma, I haven't wasted a ridiculous amount of money. Pink Dragon Fruit offers a considerably stunning and feminine appearance with its eye-catching vivid deep pink wax together with its attractive colourful label, which displays an image of the fruit.
The aroma of Pink Dragon Fruit is rather powerful despite being tightly shrink wrapped within a thick transparent covering and I immediately fell in love with the citrus tones, which made my mouth water. A slit with the point of a knife enabled me to sufficiently tear back the cellophane and subsequently remove the brightly coloured wax disc. In order for my tarts to last a little longer I snap the stronger scented variety into two pieces and place one into the bowl of my oil burner with the other piece being stored in a polythene food bag for a future use. After a few minutes, the burning tea light situated below the bowl of the burner transform the wax into a vibrant pool of liquid, which subsequently released the aroma into my living room.
The opening notes of the fragrance are the delightful tones of delicate rose petals and whilst the aroma of rose can often be a fairly strong and overly floral scent, Yankee Candle has created the perfect level of strength. The aroma, which I associate with warmer summer months, began to filter around my living room and was soon accompanied with the refreshing scent of lemonade, which I would describe as energizing and zingy and it reminded me of one of my favourite Yankee Candles, namely Sparkling Lemonade.
The uplifting, fresh, fruity and floral scents were soon intermingled with thirst quenching citrus tones of zesty lime, which provided the perfect finishing touch to this candle tart. Its strength is one of the best I've used within the Yankee Candle collection, as whilst it is claimed that the 22g wax tarts will deliver approximately eight hours of fragrance, I found that Pink Dragon fruit far exceeded this timescale where I would estimate that I achieved around fourteen hours of scent. As I had used only half of the wax tart, I was able to obtain a further fourteen hours from the remaining piece.
I must admit that when I initially removed the wax disc from the cellophane wrapper, I was of the opinion that the fragrance would be too strong for my liking. However, the blend of fragrances offers a perfect authentic scent due to the pure natural extracts used by Yankee Candle in all of their candles and I've found another firm favourite that I will definitely repurchase. I tend to burn my candle tarts for periods of around two hours, which is generally the lifetime of a larger sized tea light and during this time, the aroma of Pink Dragon Fruit had permeated the entire downstairs of my home as well as up the stars and onto the landing. I favour the fact that the scent is still evident the following day, which makes it excellent value for money. Despite the rather feminine appearance of the wax, I feel this fragrance would appeal to both men and women and I can certainly make a recommendation.
You can make a purchase of Pink Dragon Fruit from all good Yankee Candle stockists with the wax tart costing approximately £1.25.
