Advantages: Beautiful rich authentic aroma
Disadvantages: None for me
I am a huge fan of both Yankee Candles and Shearer and despite vowing not to purchase any more until my current supply has been exhausted I gave in when I discovered a newly launched fragrance from Yankee named True Rose. It was the deep red colour of the wax candle tart that invited me to lift it from the shelf and place it underneath my nose to witness its gorgeous fragrance. As the freezing cold weather is causing me to become a miserable old git I decided to try and lift my spirits and burn True Rose and this review discusses my thoughts.
The colourful image located on the front of the 22g fluted wax tart offers a display of stunning red roses and I'm of the opinion that Yankee Candle has introduced this range in readiness for Valentine's Day. Whilst I have never celebrated 14th February, as I believe it's yet another marketing ploy for brands to make a stack of money, I was captivated by the delightful fragrance, which is fairly powerful despite the wax being tightly wrapped in transparent plastic packaging. As I am a fan of Yankee's Freshly Cut Roses, which offers a pale pink wax, I was intrigued to learn how True Rose would compare.
As I removed the packaging the aroma became more evident and offered a natural rich rose fragrance that I found very uplifting. I always snap my candle tarts in half to prolong their use, so I safely stored the remaining half for another occasion. Within a few minutes of lighting the tea light the wax had began to melt and offered a delightful authentic aroma of roses. The fragrance is fairly rich as opposed to the delicate aroma of Freshly Cut Roses, but is equally as gorgeous. The aroma intensified as the wax continued to melt and within approximately ten minutes my living room had been filled with a beautiful summery fragrance, which I found very favourable, particularly as at the time of burning there was a deep layer of crisp white snow nestling outside. This is definitely a winner for me as the beautiful aroma was still evident for a couple of hours after distinguishing the tea light and assisted in lifting my spirits with its deep floral tones.
Yankee Candle tarts deliver their fragrance for up to eight hours, which I feel is good value for money and this is definitely one that I will be repurchasing. If you are familiar with the brand you will be aware that their fragrances are available in a variety of formats, such as tarts, votives, jars and tumblers. When trying out fragrances for the first time I will always opt for the tarts, as the cost of £1.10 isn't too bad if I dislike the aroma, which occurs only on the rare occasion. I also find the tarts favourable because I enjoy mixing and matching them to create my own unique aromas and I intend trying out True Rose with Freshly Cut Roses.
Yankee Candle True Rose comes with my full recommendation as it perfectly lives up to its name and as a result, receives 5 stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
