Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa
Advantages: Lovely fragrance
Disadvantages: None for me
My review is about the Mango Peach Salsa Sampler Candle.
I am a big fan of any candle type products especially the Yankee range, I have worked my way through quite a lot of the different fragrances but an always on the look out for new ones to try, I usually end up buying the wax tarts as they make excellent room fresheners and are also reasonably cheap, so if you do not like a new fragrance you have not wasted a lot of money. However from time to time I do buy the actual candles, especially the Yankee Sampler candles, again these are a bit different to the wax tarts, but they still make you house smell lovely and fresh and are not overly expensive, so again you do not waste a lot of money if you do not like a particular fragrance that you have bought to try for the first time. One of the Yankee Samplers I recently purchased was the Mango Peach Salsa Sampler Candle, I opted for the candle version of this as I love the smell of mango so I was pretty sure that I was going to like this fragrance ad I fancied something a bit different to the regular wax tarts that I usually buy.
The Mango peach Salsa Sampler Yankee candle comes tightly wrapped in a clear plastic wrapper, similar to that of the wax tart this allows you to see the colour of the candle inside. On the front of the Yankee Sampler candle is a small square label, again similar to that of the wax tarts, in the case of the Mango Peach Salsa candle the label is mainly an orange colour, it has the words Yankee Candle written at the top in black writing and the fragrance of the candle written within a white rectangle at the bottom. The rest of the label is take up with a picture which reflects the fragrance of the candle which in this case is a picture of mangos and peaches. There is no other information of the packaging other than a small label on the bottom which gives various warning in symbol form which in my opinion is not always very clear.
The Yankee Mango Peach Salsa Sampler Candle is a bright orange colour, it measure just over an inch high and is a few centimetres wide, the candle is a little thinner towards the bottom and gets wider further up, the candle has a small white wick in the centre of it which is stuck down to the wax when you purchase the candle.
When I first purchased this candle I imagined it have a very fruity fragrance which would be fresh and perfect for the warmer summer months, as I have said I love the smell of mango so I was hoping that this candle was not going to have an artificial fruity smell to it. The sampler candles do not come with anything to burn them in so you do need to put the candle in a holder before burning it, I have several candle holders around the house of different sizes so I selected one which was the right size for the small sampler candle, lit the wick and left the candle to burn.
The candle hadn't been alight for that long before I started to smell the fragrance around the room. As the fragrance began it spread I could definitely detect the fragrance of both peaches and mangos, the candle really did have a fruity smell to it, this also had a hint of sweetness mixed in too, this didn't make it smell artificial though it blended in nicely and did not overpower the actual fragrance of mango and peaches, these in my opinion were certainly the most dominant fragrances.
I have since read about this candle online and the fragrance is described as having hints of ginger flower and pink pepper, personally I could not detect much ginger, there was a slightly spiciness about the fragrance of the candle which I can only assume was the ginger, but I have to admit I really do not know what pink pepper smells like so cannot comment on whether this fragrance was present or not. Although there was a very slight hint of ginger I still think that the mango and peach fragrance was the most dominant and the ones which I could smell the most. In my opinion this particular Yankee sampler candle is ideal for the summer months, the fruity fragrances combined together gives a lovely clean fresh fragrance one which in my opinion is perfect for a warm summers day.
I purchased my Yankee Mango Peach Salsa sampler from a local gift shop which sells different Yankee products and the small candle cost be just £1.50, this in my opinion is excellent value for money, they can also be purchased from various other shops which sell Yankee products as well as online, however the price may vary a little depending on where you purchase it from. The sampler candles are a little more expensive as they are larger than the wax tarts and I do think that you get slightly more burn time from a sampler candle compared to the wax tarts. In my opinion I would certainly say that the Yankee Sampler candles are good value for money, the Mango Peach Salsa one so far has proved to be very long lasting and has done an excellent job of keeping its fragrance despite being used on several occasions.
I would certainly recommend the Yankee Mango Peach Salsa Sampler Candle, it has a lovely fruity fragrance combined with a slightly sweet yet spicy tone, the candle has quite a strong fragrance yet not over powering and does an excellent job at keeping your room smelling fresh. You get a very long burn time with these candles, I have used mine for several hours and the fragrance still has not faded. In my opinion the sampler candles are another excellent way to test out new fragrances without spending out a lot of money and they are perfect if you want something a bit different to the Yankee wax tarts.
Personally I feel that the Mango Peach Salsa is more of a summery fragrance however there is no reason why you cannot use this all year round. This is yet another of the Yankee products I would recommend and one I will certainly be buying again in the future.
Summary: A nice way to test Yankee fragrances
