Sicilian lemon Yankee candle tart


I have read so many reviews for Yankee candles and tarts etc. to the point of getting sick of reading them. However my curiosity got the better of me as I was looking for something with a strong scent that was going to fragrance my home for a decent period of time. So I went ahead and bought myself everything Iíd need in order to burn these very much talked about Yankee Tarts.

I actually ordered a pack of 10 individual tarts from Amazon which cost me around £10.00, all different fruit scents, the one Iím going to review is the Sicilian Lemon tart.

I was immediately hit by the strong scents of all the tarts together, which was somewhat over bearing when I first opened the pack, however on separating this one from the others I noticed its own very strong individual lemon scent. Opening the packet was a bit of a pain, by the time I got into it my hands smelt very strongly of lemon.

I did like the way it fit nice and neatly into the burner Iíd bought, but thought to myself it was a lot smaller than I had imagined it to be, for some reason I expected the tart to be bigger than just a couple of inches diameter, anyway I lit the tea light under the burner and waited for a lovely strong scent of lemon to fill my room. It actually didnít take long at all for the tart to start melting and for the scent to start circulating around the room. At first I was really impressed I really liked it, but after a while all I could smell was lockets and any other throat sweets. I know the scent was lemon which you would associate with throat sweets and the like but it began to make me feel like we were all munching away on throat sweets. My husband said the scent was very strong and it gave him a headache.

Now I donít really mind the scent that much but I donít think Iíd buy another lemon tart, I guess this one just wasnít for me or my household.

But that aside, the tart cost me around £1.00, it was worth it because I actually decided to time the amount of burn time it gave me and I clearly got more than the eight hours they say you get. So for me I think this tart was value for money. Each time I blew the tea light out the smell of lemon lingered for a fair amount of time afterwards as well.

So all in all Iím pleased I went ahead and bought the burner and tarts and Iím looking forward to trying all the others in the pack.

Thank you for reading my review which may appear on other sites.

Wax Tart . New for Summer 2012, a collection of
bright and tropical colours and flavours to send
your senses into pure bliss! Sicilian Lemon is a
bright and sunny citrus fragrance that diffuses
the perfectly ripe, naturally sweet and refreshing
scents of summer. Expertly blended using natural
extracts, each Yankee Candle fragrance will evoke

either oil, electric, or tea light burners, to
which you must never add water. Each wax tart
gives you approximately 8 hours burn time of
luxurious fragrance. These tarts can also be used
without melting to simply scent draws, cupboards
or anywhere they are stored. The wax tarts allow
you to mix and match aromas to find your own
personal blend. Each Wax Tart delivers the same
great scent as all other Yankee Candle ranges, but
