~Snow In Love~
Prior to Christmas 2012, Snow In Love was available in different formats including candle jars, samplers and wax tarts. For the purpose of this review, I will be discussing my use of the wax tart. I prefer to buy wax tarts as I get the opportunity to sample each Yankee scent without splashing out on an expensive candle jar. A wax tart is a disc of wax which is made up of natural extracts and essential oils. It should be melted in a tart burner and can be re-used until all the scent is gone.
Snow In Love fits well into the seasonal range as it is white in colour. The tart comes tightly wrapped in plastic and features a simple label illustrating pink love hearts. A 22g tart is said to offer at least 8 hours of scent. The official Yankee description of Snow In Love is 'fall in love with this delightful blend of creamy, comforting woods and wintry powder freshness;.
~Price and Availability~
Wax tarts retail around the £1.25 mark. Snow In Love can be bought online from stores including www.yankeescents4.com, eBay and Amazon from as low as 99p.
I meant to post this review a few weeks ago but luckily this wax tart is still available. I bought this online alongside the other 2012 scents and was looking forward to trying it out. I like to melt wax tarts as a way of fragrancing my home. I now have a normal burner and an electric burner in my home but opted to melt this tart in my normal burner by way of having a lit tealight underneath. It is possible to use half the tart at any one time but I normally use a full tart and did with this scent.
Unwrapping this tart I was quite taken by the scent that greeted me. I could detect a gorgeous sweet aroma which was surpringly strong. My tart took a short while to fully melt in my burner bowl and I was able to witness a steady level of scent filling my living room. After 30 minutes, Snow In Love could also be detected in my hall way and kitchen but was most concentrated in my living room. The scent does a good job of taking over any other odours in the air and freshens well.
Snow In Love certainly won't be to everyones tastes but I quite like it. It is quite a strong, heavy scent and very concentrated as it filters around the room. I feel it would be too strong for using in a small room but my living room is very big so it flows well and doesn't overpower. The main aroma offered by this wax tart is sweet vanilla. It isn't a typical vanilla scent but more of a perfumy vanilla which gives it a bit of a strength boost.
As the vanilla filters around my living room it lightens slightly and comes across as being fresh which is very fitting for the 'wintry powder freshness' aspect. The vanilla is also joined by a natural, woody undertone is evident which adds an extra layer to the scent and completes the 'comforting woods' feel.There is a nice mixture of sweetness, freshness and warmth which may come across as being a bit much but I like the way it flows. I find Snow In Love to be a fragrant yet, comforting scent which is perfectly sweet for using on a cold evening.
Snow In Love is a little bit different from the usual festive or sweet scents that Yankee Candle offer. It is unique and an acquired taste in my opinion as I do not feel that everyone will like the layered scent that it offers. Some may not appreciate the strong perfume aroma either as my fiance said it was a little much for him. I melted my tart over the course of a few evenings and found that it gave off around 10 hours of scent. I have been quite impressed by the scent and strength of Snow In Love and can recommend it.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: won't appeal to all but I love it
