Advantages Smells beautiful
Disadvantages Fades far too quickly
I'm a big fan of Yankee wax tarts ever since I started reading some fantastic reviews on here which urged me to buy a burner and subsequently stock up on tarts. I bought a petal base burner back in November and have been buying wax tarts frequently - normally every week or so, sometimes from a local Hallmark card shop where they sporadically have them on sale at 60p, but mainly if I've any spare money in my paypal account my preferred method is to buy from reputable sellers on Ebay.
When I came across a mixed assortment of 10 for the bargain price of just £8 inc P&P I thought this was too god an offer to turn down and placed my order. When the tarts arrived I was very pleased to discover there were several varieties that I hadn't tried before, as well as some of my favourites and this review focuses on my experience of a new one, for me anyway, entitled 'Wedding Day'.
So having burned this recently what are my thoughts?
This wax tart as mentioned was part of a mixed bundle but can be purchased separately from various stockists from around the £1.15 mark though prices will vary depending on where you choose to shop.
Wedding Day comes presented in the same way as all Yankee wax tarts in a clear plastic wrapper with a sticker on the back telling us the size (22g), how to use and estimated burning time etc, whilst on the front we have a sticker depicting a bunch of white flowers - very apt.
On opening the wax tart there was quite a strong flowery aroma escaping which was exactly as I had imagined and there was a strong rose/ lily essence that I could immediately detect. I'm not normally a fan floral based fragrances, whether it be in candle/ wax form or perfumes but there was something very alluring about this and I was looking forward to burning it.On placing in my wax tart burner and lighting the tea light underneath I found the aroma to start to intensify once the wax tart began to melt. The initial rose/ lily aroma I detected on first opening it became far more prominent once it started to melt and I was actually pleasantly surprised to learn that I liked the fragrance.The wax tart has an approximate burning time of 8 hours though this is where I feel it started to let itself down. After around half an hour of the tea light being lit underneath I found the scent to be at it's strongest and the pretty floral fragrance wafted gently through to each room without being too overpowering, but strong enough for it to make it's presence known. Although I normally keep my burner in my kitchen (for safety reasons and for the fact my kitchen is the most central room in my cottage) I did move it to my bathroom when burning Wedding Tart and found the fragrance to equally distribute to all of my other rooms without being too intoxicating in the bathroom itself.
