Yankee Candle Plumeria
Advantages: A lovely floral smell for your home
Disadvantages: Abolutely none
I was lucky enough to receive a Yankee Tart Burner and some wax tarts to use with it for my birthday. One of the tarts I got was Plumeria, I had never tried this one before so eager to use it. Yankee wax tarts are small discs of scented oily wax about the size of a mince pie. They have no wick and are designed to be melted in a tart or oil burner. I always think they have a slightly oily feel to them, different to regular candle wax.
Yankee sell their tarts for approximately £1.00 give or take a few pence depending on were you get them from and sometimes how many you buy. They are sold wrapped tightly in a clear polythene which enables you to smell them before you buy. Obviously you don't get the full fragrance but you can usually smell enough to get a rough idea on what the tart will be like.
All the tarts have a label on the front picturing the fragrance, in the case of this one it's a Plumeria flower. This particular tart is pink in colour.
As I said to use a wax tart you need a burner, the tart needs to be placed in the dish or bowl on the burner, you then light a tea light to melt it and sit back and wait for your room to fill with fragrance.
Yankee wax tarts melt quite quickly and in about 10miuets the fragrance will start to fill the room.
The Plumeria tart was no exception, as the wax started to melt the room filled a beautiful floral scent. It has a tropical feel to it as you would expect with Plumeria flowers coming Hawaii. This particular tart also contains jasmine, tuberose and had a citrus element as well. I did think with the jasmine this one might be slightly heady but it isn't, its just a beautiful tropical floral fragrance that will give your home a lovely warm relaxed atmosphere.
Having an open plan house means smells creep round the whole house, this isn't so good when its cooking smells but with something like this its lovely to smell it throughout the house.
Each tart is said to give 8 hours worth of fragrance, I would, on the whole agree with this although I have never actually tried to have one on the go for 8 hours straight. When the tea light goes out or you blow it out the wax will solidify and you can either leave it in the burner ready for next time or take it out and store in a container if you like to use different ones each time.
I will definitely buy this tart again, it was light and summery. I always recommend Yankee products particularly their wax tarts, they give 8 hours of lovely fragrance to your home. You can mix tarts together to create your own smell, I have personally never done this as I feel they don't need to be mixed but that's just my opinion. I also keep wax tarts in my linen cupboard. You get a nice waft of fragrance every time you open the door.
If you like your home to smell nice then give Yankee Wax Tarts a try.
