Yankee Candle Tart Loves Me Loves Me Not
Advantages: Strong long-lasting fragrance
Knowing how much I love Yankee Wax Tarts, my daughter often treats me to one or two when she has been out shopping and just recently she came home with one of my favourites: 'Soft Blanket' and also another one which I had not tried before but she thought I would like, this 'Loves Me Loves Me Not' wax tart.
Loves Me Loves Me Not is one of the newer Yankee fragrances and up until my daughter buying me this wax tart I had not seen any in the shops where I usually purchase my wax tarts when in town, but I had seen it in a glass jar format and had liked the look of it with photograph of a summer daisy on the label and also the pure white wax.
Yankee describe this new fragrance as a fresh field daisy with pretty white petals just waiting to be plucked and state that just like a romantic daydream it captures the essence of summer love.
I expected the wax to smell floral of course and it certainly does capture the essence of daisies and summer flowers. I have came across a few wax tarts which although smell really lovely, they fail to smell anything like their name or description. Loves Me, Loves Me Not however, matches its title perfectly.
I am not always a lover of floral fragrance. Indeed I always prefer the musky, spicier fragrances from the Yankee range, closely followed by the fruity ones. Floral fragrance is always my least favourite and I am the same when it comes to perfume and toiletries, therefore I was surprised at just how appealing this fragrance was to me when I first held it to my nose and I was looking forward to using it.
After unwrapping the wax tart and placing it in my oil burner with a tealight underneath, I waited as the wax began to melt and very soon the fragrance began to appear. I must point out that you must ensure the well in your oil burner is deep enough to hold the wax tart and if not, you should slice the tart in half or to whatever size fits your burner. Fortunately mine has a deep well and so I placed the whole tart in the well.
I usually find that after around 4-5 mins as the wax begins to melt, I begin to detect the fragrance from a wax tart, however, with this one I began to smell the fragrance after only 2-3 minutes.
The fragrance became stronger as the wax melted and soon the whole room was filled with the scent, wafting out into my hallway and up the stairs.
Yankee state you can expect up to 8 hours burn time from a wax tart before the fragrance disappears, which is something I have found varies from candle to candle. The longevity of some wax tarts I have used are really good and I have actually experienced over 8 hours of fragrance with some of them, but there have been one or two that have disappointed me also. I am pleased to report that Loves Me Loves Me Not is one of those which actually exceeds the 8 hours and I was very happy with the longevity of this one.
The fragrance also hung in the air for a long time after extinguishing the tealight. I burned this wax tart for around 3 hours on an evening and the next morning I could still smell its fragrance as I walked down the stairs.
I could still smell this fragrance after 12 hours of burning and it was only after this time that it finally began to disappear and so overall I achieved around 13-14 hours of fragrance from this wax tart which represents excellent value for money.
I really liked Loves Me Loves Me Not and it is one I shall be buying again as this could be one to add to my favourites list. It also makes a lovely drawer scenter and I always store my wax tarts in my drawers prior to burning them and so they always serve more than one purpose for me.
I definitely recommend this one!
Loves Me Loves Me Not can be purchased from branches of Clintons and Collectables as well as department stores. It can also be purchased online from Yankee stockists and Amazon. This fragrance is also available to purchase in other formats such as glass jars, tumblers, votives and tealights but I personally think that the wax tarts offer the best value for money.
Summary: A quality wax tart with great fragrance and longevity.
