Yankee Candle Soft Blanket
Advantages: appearance, smell, strength, lasting power
Disadvantages: nothing really
Soft Blanket is part of the regular scent range that Yankee Candle offer. This particular scent is available in different sized candle jars, tealights, votives and also wax tarts. A wax tart is a disc of scented wax which should be melted in an appropriate tart burner. Each tart is said to offer 8 hours of scent.
The Soft Blanket wax tart is white and is packaged within a tight, clear plastic wrapper. The label adorning the packaging illustrates a teddy bear with a white blanket. The official description for this scent is 'wrapped in sweet dreams..a lullaby of clean citrus, luxurious vanilla and warm amber'.

Soft Blanket wax tart is available from a wide range of online stores and also on the highstreet. Stockists include www.yankeescents4.com, Amazon and also eBay. Expect to pay between £1.00 and £1.20 per tart.
I am a big Yankee Candle fan and favour the wax tarts as an inexpensive way of experiencing all the scents that Yankee Candle has to offer. I have recently purchased a lot of the more regular Yankee scents including Soft Blanket. I have put off trying this one as I didn't think (given the name), that it would be a particularly strong or memorable scent. That being said, now I have tried it, I do quite like it even if it doesn't remind me of a soft blanket!
I wasn't sure what to expect from this scent but the official description is spot on and this scent definitely appeals to me for using on cold evenings. Soft Blanket is an inoffensive scent which would appeal to many in my opinion. The white tart melts to form a pool of clear wax and within 5 minutes or so, the scent of Soft Blanket becomes noticeable as it filters around my living room. The scent was stronger than I expected and could be detected in my hallway and kitchen at a noticeable level of strength.
The scent of Soft Blanket is really lovely and the notes have been mixed well to create a unique offering. The citrussy notes are noticeable and cleanse the air of any homely odours whilst adding a fresh touch to an otherwise sweet scent. The vanilla is most prominent - beautifully sweet and not the tiniest bit synthetic. The vanilla is in no way sickly as it floats around my home and smells absolutely gorgeous. Vanilla is one of my favourite scents and I feel it is captured well here.
The warm amber is noticeable soon after the tart starts to melt. It adds depth and warmth to the overall scent making it cosy and comforting to have melting away in the background. Despite filling my home with a gorgeous scent, Soft Blanket is still quite a delicate arrangement - it never becomes overpowering or heady but simply lingers and leaves my home smelling sweet and me very content and relaxed.
The scent of Soft Blanket offers a calming ambience to my home and smells really beautiful. It lingers well and I found that my tart offered around 12-14 hours of noticeable scent before it weakened. Others have stated this scent reminds them of Joop aftershave but I haven't smelled this before so cannot comment. The overall scent is a mixed bag but all the notes work well together to create a warm, sweet scent with a light citrus undertone and I really like it. It is of a high quality and very naturally scented.
Thanks for reading :)
