Yankee Candle Wax Tart Bahama Breeze
Advantages: Wonderful scent, long lasting, not overpowering yet strong, good price, burns well.
I love burning candles and I regularly attend candle parties with my friends too always looking for a new holder or something that smells good for my home. It was at a candle party that I was given this wax tart 'Bahama breeze' for free by a friend who wasn't very keen on the scent. I had a sniff through the packaging and was really pleased as I love fruity fragrances and so I promptly snapped her offer up and put this in my handbag. It was actually some weeks later that I decided to have a clear out and I found this in the bottom as well as a nicely scented handbag.
This wax tart comes in the standard wrapping that I often end up stabbing open with scissors. I then drop all of the wax tart, crumbs and all, in to my Yankee Candle wax tart petal burner. I then place an unscented tea light underneath light this and for 4 hours (usually) I leave the tart burner to do its thing and wait until the tea light burns out naturally. I then know that I have one more 4 hour time that I can burn a tea light and normally find that the scent is lasting until around the time that the second tea light burns out.
This wax tart is a lovely turquoise colour that just makes me think of beaches and crystal clear blue sea. There is a picture of two cocktails on the front that makes me think of holidays and in all I was feeling relaxed and happy before burning this wax tart for the first time. This wax tart, like all of the wax tarts that I have used has a scent that can be detected before you actually burn the tart and this one smells fruity, fresh and tropical. I could detect lots of fruity flavours with a nice sweetness to them and I mainly picked up on the pineapple that you always seem to get with tropical smelling items. The fragrance of this wax tart is quite strong but this is good as it fills my home with delightful tropical scents that end up reaching every room. There is not any artificial smell to this fragrance which is a huge plus point for me and one of the reasons why I love Yankee Candle products. Once the wax tart has finished releasing fragrance I could still detect this in my home for at least the rest of the day. This isn't something I've always noticed with other wax tarts and again this is a fantastic plus point for this wax tart.
Now this wax tart was quite an exception in most ways because after I had burned 2 unscented tea lights for 4 hours each I was delighted to find that I could still smell the scent quite strongly from the solidified wax. I then burnt another tea light and got around 2 more hours of scent which is absolutely fantastic.
Should you want to buy this wax tart you can find them online and in store at Clinton Cards. The usual selling price for wax tarts is around £1.10 but mine was free!
I am going to rate this wax tart 5 out of 5 stars. For me it has been absolutely delightful and has filled my home with a wonderful tropical scent that is strong without being overpowering and very long lasting. This is one of the most long lasting and powerfully scented wax tarts that I have ever purchased and I will definitely buy this one in the future. I am so pleased that I got this for free as I perhaps never would've tried this otherwise.
Summary: A fantastic wax tart from the Yankee Candle range.
