Yankee Candle Tart Loves Me Loves Me Not
Advantages: pretty to look at, strength?
Disadvantages: too heady, overpowering and not for me..
Yankee Candle originated in the USA and offers a huge range of scented candles and other treats for the home.
~Loves Me Loves Me Not~
Every year, Yankee release new scents. Spring 2012 saw the release of 5 new fragrances. One such fragrance is 'Loves Me Loves Me Not'.
Loves Me Loves Me Not can be purchased in the form of tea lights, jars, sampler votives and wax tarts. A wax tart is a disc of scented wax which should be melted in a tart burner. Each tart is said to hold at least 8 hours of fragrance.
This particular tart is white in colour and has a clear wrapper. The label adorning the tart shows a fresh daisy with a cloudy sky backdrop. The underside of the tart gives some warnings about how to use the tart.
Yankee Candle describe Loves Me Loves Me Not as..
'A fresh field daisy with pretty white petals just waiting to be pulled . . . oh, the anticipation!'
If you wish to purchase this scent, head to www.yankeescents4.com where it is priced at £1.05. The tea lights are £5.99 and the large jar is £17.99. Amazon, eBay and other Yankee websites also stock this scent. It is also worth checking out your local Yankee stockists as they are likely to have the new scents in stock.
During a recent Yankee splurge, I purchased all 5 of the new 2012 scents. I bought 10 tarts for just under £10.00 with free p&p and was really pleased that the new scents were included in this offer.
I am not usually a big fan of flower based scents but I am open to trying different scents. I have used some Yankee tarts which have been quite floral and really liked them so I wouldn't judge a scent before burning it. This tart looked really pretty and very 'Spring'. I chose to melt this one during the day whilst flitting about doing my house work. It isn't the sort of scent which gives a cosy atmosphere to the home but nor would you expect a Spring floral scent to do this.
This tart was highly fragranced before I even melted it and to be honest, I wasn't really all that keen on it! I placed the full tart in the burner bowl and lit a tea light underneath. I went to get my cleaning stuff and came back a few minutes later - the scent filtering (or should I say shoving) its way around my living room was highly concentrated and extremely flowery!
I don't mind daisies - I spent long enough in the garden as a child and we had lots of daisies scattered about but this took my breath away (and not in a good way). As the tart melted further, I found it impossible to be in the same room as the tart burner. I hated it! There was no denying the tarts strength as I could smell it all around the house but it was overpowering and simpy awful.
Perhaps this scent is only designed to be appreciated by those who adore floral scents but personally, I doubt many could stomach it! It did resemble daisies - not a few but millions! Each time I entered the living room, I kept thinking of my head been forced into a bucket of fresh daisies or walking into an enclosed garden centre with no way out! I felt sick - literally felt sick and kept heaving. I have never had this issue with a Yankee tart before. I feel the scent would have been more pleasant if it hadn't been so strong,
I suppose I expected a fresh, clean daisy smell from this tart hence the reason why I was disappointed by the overbearing, green floral scent. I had to open the balcony door to rid the house of the stench and even had to get my fiance to blow the tea light out after 30 minutes as I couldn't go near it. The scent faded quickly (thankfully) and the tart turned solid. I haven't been able to bring myself to use it again as a whole tart so broke it down into pieces and have managed to handle a little bit melted at a time.
Definitely not for me. I would only recommend Loves Me Loves Me Not if your favourite flower is a daisy or if you have a huge house and only use a tiny bit at a time. Doing this gives longer than the recommended 8 hours of scent.
Overall I was disappointed with this particular tart but this is no negative reaction to all of the new scents Yankee have released. This one is perhaps a little too natural smelling for me.
Thanks for reading :)
