Yankee Candle Mango Peach Salsa
Advantages: Strong, fruity fragrance, great longevity.
Mango Peach Salsa is one of the Yankee wax tarts my daughter has bought for me. She often treats me to a couple of wax tarts when she is out shopping and although she often buys me my favourite fragrances, she sometimes surprises me with one I haven't tried but thinks I will enjoy.
Knowing I enjoy fruity fragrances, she thought this one would appeal to me and she was right.
Mango Peach Salsa is a strong and peachy-smelling fragrance, its sweet scent quite evident whilst it is still in its packaging. The wax itself is also peach in colour and with the mango and peaches on the label, there is no doubt this an aptly named fragrance - believe me, some are not!
Yankee describe Mango Peach Salsa as 'sweet and zesty' with juicy mango and peach livened with citrus, ginger flowers and pink pepper.
I am fond of burning the woody, spicy, fresh or fruity citrus fragrances more than the floral ones and so I was looking forward to this one.
Before I came to use the wax tart, I popped it in my underwear drawer as these tarts also make lovely drawer scenters.
When I came to use the tart I placed it into the deep well in my burner and lit a tealight underneath. As soon as the wax began to melt, the fruity aroma began to fill the room with a strong peach fragrance. After a further couple of minutes I could detect some other notes creeping in and the mango fragrance was evident along with a subtle hint of spice, which was probably the ginger flowers and pink pepper.
The fragrance from my wax tart filled my downstairs rooms and out into the hallway and up the stairs. My daughter could smell the scent in her bedroom and although strong, it was not overpowering or sickly in any way.
I am also pleased to report that fragrance also hangs in the air for a long time after you extinguish the tealight or when it has burned out too.
In terms of longevity, I found the fragrance released from this wax tart exceeded the eight hours suggested by Yankee and I found I achieved around nine hours of strong fragrance from this wax tart before the fragrance began to fade, which is a bonus. I have experienced some wax tarts which appear strong in fragrance at first but then quickly disappear. This wasn't the case here, as the fragrance slowly faded and I was able to eke out around twelve hours overall before the scent finally disappeared.
By buying these wax tarts or even the tealights or votive candles, it is a cheap way to sample the many fragrances Yankee offer. The fragrances are also available in glass jar formats and these are considerably more expensive to buy, so I personally find buying these wax tarts which are priced between 99p - £1.20 each, an ideal way to find out if you like the fragrance before spending more on a glass jar candle.
Mango Peach Salsa is one I will definitely purchase again. It is not my favourite fruity fragrance by Yankee, but one I still really enjoyed and in terms of longevity and strength of fragrance it cannot be faulted.
Yankee advise that you try mixing and matching the scents to create your own unique fragrance and this is something I keep meaning to try at some point too. It is easy to slice the wax tarts into half or smaller segments, which is something you would have to do anyway if the well in your burner is not deep enough to hold a whole tart, but also by doing this you could mix with a segment of another wax tart and see what happens, thus creating your own fragrance.
Yankee wax tarts and the other candles in the range are available to buy at branches of Clinton cards, Debenhams and Collectables as well as other card and gift shops and can also be found online at many retailers including Amazon and YankeeDoodle.co.uk.
Summary: Another quality wax tart from Yankee.
