      Yankee Turqoise Sky Sampler

      The Product
      = = = = = =
      The Turquoise Sky Scent is fairly new to the Yankee range and is a bright blue colour. The scent contains salty air with hints of sea grass and musk that float gently on ocean waves beneath a bright blue sky. I recently purchase quite a few samplers from the Yankee website and because this scent was new and I liked the sound of it I also purchased this one too. I tend to purchase samplers before committing myself to purchasing a larger jar candle as the smell may not be a nice or as long lasting as you think. The sampler comes individually wrapped in plastic and has a picture on the front. The picture on this sampler is a glass bottle with a message inside sitting on a sandy beach with the bright Blue Ocean and sky in the background. On the bottom of the candle is a round label that shows you pictures where you should and shouldn't place the candle when lit. The wick on the sampler is a good length so can be list easily with a lighter or match. I have a votive holder which I place the sampler from (also purchased from Yankee Direct) and I find that these are good for holding the sampler's with them still being easy to light even once the sampler has burned for a few hours.

      Using the Product
      = = = = = = = =
      I could smell the scent of the sampler through the cellophane and as soon as I unwrapped the sampler the scent of it got stronger. It was very hard to pick one obvious scent from the sampler as I thought it smell slightly florally. The scent was certainly fresh and smelt very summery. I lit the wick using a lighter and let it burn. The sampler has only been burning for a good 5minutes but I could already smell the scent of it. I was a little surprised at how strong the scent of the sampler was as I haven't really known a Yankee product to smell quite as strong as so smell so quickly after lighting it. It wasn't long before the smell filled my bedroom and could be smelt just outside my bedroom door and as soon as you walked into the bedroom. The smell was really refreshing and made me feel a little summery as well. Again, I couldn't really pick a certain scent out from the sampler. After blowing the flame out I could still smell the scent of the sampler for a good 15minutes afterwards which was nice. I also find that although the sampler isn't lit it does sometimes give off the scent of the product a little. I noticed this when working on my computer as I can smell the sampler although it's not even lit.

      Overall Opinion
      = = = = = = = =
      The smell of this sampler is very fresh and summery. It freshened up my whole room and it stayed smelling for a good amount of time after the sampler has been blown out. Although this isn't one of my favourite scents by Yankee I think it's one of the strongest scents from their range, but not so strong that it's overpowering. I would definitely purchase this scent again but would be more inclined to use it during the summer for a real summer feel. If you like very fresh fragrances then I would highly recommend this to others.
