Yankee Candle Sparkling Cinnamon
Advantages: Great smell
Disadvantages: None for us
Keeping my home smelling nice is very important to me and my favourite way to do this is by using scented candles or wax tarts. I love the way an atmosphere can be created depending on the fragrance of scented wax. It can create a bright fresh clean feel to a room or a warm cosy romantic atmosphere. I was lucky enough to have a few Yankee Wax Tarts in my stocking at Christmas, my mum does us all a stocking, and one of them was Sparkling Cinnamon, one I hadn't tried before.
Wax Tarts are simple little discs of oily wax without a wick, they measure approximately 6cm's x 1.5cm's and cost round about £1.00 - £1.20 depending on where you buy them from. They have a fluted edge and do look just like a little tart. In my opinion Yankee make the best wax tarts and these are the ones I always use.
Sparkling Cinnamon comes wrapped tightly in clear cellophane allowing you to see the reddish/brown wax, the wax tart has a label stuck to the front which shows a small picture which always depicts the fragrance of the tart. In the case of this one the label shows cinnamon sticks dusted with sugar and tied with red ribbon.
You can usually get a good idea of what the wax tart is going to smell by just by smelling the tart inside the wrapper, handy of you are in a shop and not too sure if you like the sound if it.
Sparkling Cinnamon smells absolutely delicious, in my opinion it just screams Christmas. Yankee describe this as:-
"Holiday glow, the spicy warmth of real imported stick cinnamon with a hint of cloves"
To use a wax tart you do need an oil burner and an unscented tea light, its just a case of popping the unwrapped wax tart into the burner and lighting the tea light below it so it melts the wax tart. Once lit it doesn't take long before the oily wax is starting to melt and the fragrance filters around the room.
Sparkling Cinnamon smells strongly as you would expect of cinnamon, its sweet warm and spicy, there is a hint of cloves in the aroma but it is only a hint so it doesn't take the sweetness away from the cinnamon. The fragrance isn't too strong but just a lovely background scent. This wax tart is the ideal way to fragrance your home at Christmas time. Its warm, cosy and welcoming. As I mentioned I received this as a Christmas present and I used it the very same day.
I would say this is a daytime or an evening fragrance although I only used it in the daytime I think in the evenings it would create a warm festive cosy atmosphere.
Yankee only use natural extracts and oils in their wax and this gives them a true to life smell, there's certainly nothing artificial about their fragrances.
My home is open plan and after about an hour I can smell the wax tart all over my house, upstairs and down.
I always melt my wax tarts for a couple of hours at a time, I find the fragrance lingers for a long while after the wax has solidified and this in my opinion is the best way to get the best value from the tart. Yankee state their wax tarts will give you up to 8 hours fragrance and I agree. I just leave the set wax in the burner dish ready to re melt the next day. Once the wax has run out of fragrance I leave it to set then remove the wax from the dish.
You can melt the wax tarts whole, break them in half or even mix them to create your own fragrances. Personally I don't mix mine I just melt the tart whole.
Yankee wax tarts can be found in many independent shops and also some major department stores as well as many online stores such as Amazon UK and Yankee Direct. They are great value for money and a lovely way to fragrance your home for a small amount of money.
