I had recently picked up a Yankee tart in my local Clintons called Pink Lady Slipper at just 80p - reduced from the regular price of £1.20. I didn't give the actual tart much of a look as I was more interested in testing out new tarts at low prices.
Now that I have had the tart sitting in a little box for a few weeks and I have had a good look at it its probably not something I would go for due to how floral it is.
The tarts are wrapped in transparant plastic which can easily be opened using your finger nails or snipping with a pair of scissors.
About the tart
The tart colour is light pink to be in keeping with the flower type. It is made from wax and is round with ridged edges like all the tarts in the Yankee range. The Yankee Candle Co logo is also stamped into the tart.
The front label states the tart is from the Yankee Candle range, in the background you have the image of a pink Lady Slipper flower. It then advises you that the tart is made from pure natural plant extracts.
The back label then gives you your usual warning symbols for what not to do with this product ie . keep out of reach of children ect.
The label also confirms the tart weight is 22g and total burning time is 8 hours.
How to use
You literally pop the tart on the top of your burner, light your candle and put underneith and it starts to melt within 5 minutes and you get the first wafts of scent from the tart. Within 20 minutes it is melted completly and the smell fills the room.
As well as melting a tart on its own, I have read you can mix tart scents to create more unique smells - you simply break off smaller bits of tart and melt together. More information on mixing and ideas can be found on the Yankee website.
First sniff of the tart and you do get a faint sweet floral smell. When the tart is completly melted within 20 minutes the floral scent does get stronger but is quite light and not overpowering. To me it almost smells like a plug in air freshener.
Its a good one to freshen the scent in your home but in my opinion its too floral - I prefer sweet or fruity scents.
