Advantages natural smelling, zingy, price
Disadvantages not as strong as other tarts, scent isn't consistent
If you haven't heard of Yankee Candle by now - where have you been! Originally established in the USA, this popular name is on many candle and scented homeware products.
Like many other Yankee scents, Sicilian Lemon can be purchased in different formats to suit your home and budget. The more expensive options include housewarmer jars and tumblers. If you don't wish to splash out on an expensive jar, opt for the votive sampler, wax tart or the tea lights.I my experience of Sicilian Lemon is by way of the wax tart. A wax tart is a disc of solid wax which has been infused with natural essential oils. Each 22g is designed to give at least 8 hours of fragrance and should be melted in an appropriate tart or oil burner.
Sicilian Lemon is naturally a yellow coloured tart. It is presented shrink wrapped for freshness and features an image label showing juicy lemons. Yankee describe Sicilian Lemon as..'a bright and sunny citrus...perfectly ripe, with a naturally sweet and refreshing scent'
As this is a new release, it is likely to be stocked in your local Yankee stocked store. Online, it is widely available.*www.yankeescents4.com - £1.05 (tart) £1.60 (votive) £5.99 (tea lights) and from £7.49 (jars and tumblers)
Other stockists include Amazon, www.collectables.co.uk, eBay UK and www.yankeedirect.com. The average price for the wax tart is around £1.20.
I like lemon scents but I feel they can be a hit or a miss. Some lemon scents remind me too much of cleaning products and I have a cheap bottle of Cif to make my home smell like this so I want something a bit more natural when it comes to candles. This tart was beautifully presented and I chose to use it during the day as I associate lemon with being fresh and fruity rather than warm and cosy (so evening use was out of the question).
I wouldn't say this is the strongest wax tart I have tried before but it isn't watery and weak like some others. It filled my living room with a pleasant level of fragrance and filtered into my kitchen.
