Another new scent for me to try in he Yankee Candle range - I have to admit I have had this one for some time now but, had forgotten about it as it was tucked away in the back of my candle drawer. I came across it as I was going through sorting them all out and was so excited to find another Yankee one! I put this on this morning and it has been scenting my spare room today whilst I have been working.
What is it? This Yankee candle is actually a ‘tart’ which is in effect not really a candle as such but, a small flat round piece of wax that you heat up and allow to melt, usually in an oil burner of some kind. Once the wax starts to melt it gives off the gorgeous scent of the candle or as it is aptly named, the potpourri as it does the same job as what a tub of potpourri would do! The tart comes wrapped in a plastic shrink type wrap completely see through apart from the top that has a label stuck on to tell you what scent it is and on the bottom with ingredients printed on.
This scent: When I found it I instantly put it up o my nose to get a good whiff of it as they always smell so nice it is impossible not to! The scent of this one is quite woody but, with a hint of spice. I actually thought it had a slight aroma similar to the almond cookie scent they do although definitely had more of a musky type scent to it as well. The aroma is what I would call a manly type smell as it would be ideal for those that want quite a masculine scent rather than say one of the lighter girly scents. It is definitely a scent you associate with the autumn, although this could be of course because of the name! However I did feel it had an aroma to it that made me think of that time of year when all he leaves are falling and the ground are full of leaves. Again the longevity of the scent is very good with it lingering long after the candle had gone out in my oil burner and the wax had set again.
Price: This was priced at 99p which is the same as all the others that I have bought or had bought for me up to now. This is pretty much the average price you can expect to pay for Yankee Candle wax tarts although sometimes you can find them priced between 50p upwards depending on if the particular scent is on offer. A lot of online retailers price them lower but, of course most will then charge you for postage.
Overall opinion: This one is another that is ideal for those cold winter nights to make your home feel cosy although of course you can burn it whenever you feel like! Like today I put mine on even though the sun was shining and it smelt beautiful so it was nice to sit there working with the smell of this blowing around the room! However it is one of those scents that some places can run low on stock of during the spring and summer as it generally is brought out nearer to he winter season hence the name. I do think it is a gorgeous scent and again this is another that I would like to buy again and I know if I was buying in bulk this would be one of the ones I would pick up.
