As well as purchasing my first tart burner with my first Amazon gift voucher I recieved recently, I also bought a 5 pack of various Yankee Candle tarts. One of those five tarts was the Vanilla Satin one. Even though I didn't get a say in which scents I recieved I was very pleased with this as I love vanilla smells and I would of likely chosen this myself at some point in the future.
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 is cream in colour, 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 it then has the image of creamy coloured roses. 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.
You can smell Vanilla off this tart before the packaging is even opened and when the plastic is removed the smell is stronger. It doesnt smell artificial or overpowering it is very relaxing and calming.
This is the third tart I have tested and out of the three this is definetly the one that the smell lingers in the air the longest - I can still smell 5 hours after blowing out the candle! I had this melting in my living room and words cannot decribe how fitting and relaxing it has been in this room tonight! I would recommend this scent to everyone!
