A Yankee Candle Tart Review- Autumn Wreath
Brand: Yankee Candle Company
Product: Wax Tart
Warmer Used: Glade 24 watt
Online scent Description:” There’s a cheerful fall welcome in the spicy warmth of autumn leaves and cinnamon apples.”
Opening: As you may have read if you have been a reader of my blog for any length of time, I have not had the best of luck with the Yankee Candle brand. No throw from previous candles and tarts, tarts crumbling into a huge mess etc. While me and my husband were out shopping at one of our local outlet malls we had made a pit stop at Bed Bath and Beyond to check out the new store. What isle must I run to first? You guessed it! BB&B had their fall wax/candles selection out so of course I was tempted. This is where Yankee draws me back in. So I decided to give a few of their tarts another try, So here goes nothing!
(Speaking of wreaths, Bed Bath and Beyond had this beautiful one for sale, loving the dried orange slices!)
On cold throw the aroma is a familiar fall fragrance that if I close my eyes I picture myself being in a home goods or craft store walking down the isles filled with scented pine cones, fragrant wreaths and cinnamon brooms.
As my picture suggest there was a small amount of crumbling but nothing compared to my first experience. I chose my Glade warmer because I have been having the best results with it as of late. It took about 20-25 minutes before I was able to detect any throw but once the tart melted down about half way, I was able to get and keep a medium throw for about 3-4 hours. On warm I picked up on a crisp apple aroma that I wasn’t able to smell before warming that’s blended with the smell of leaves and a musky note. This fragrance wouldn’t be the fall scent we all expect without that dash of cinnamon added for a hint of spice. The apple and earthy leaves notes toned down the cinnamon enough for me to enjoy this fragrance.
Fall Decor Tour:
I enjoyed setting the table with the fall decorations I had and my Fiesta ware plates. I’ve always enjoyed the orange color of these plates! So perfect for fall!
This was my favorite look so I was glad to get a picture of it by itself.
A canvas painting I had painted last year to hang on my walls for fall this year.
We have a hook that sticks from our ceiling so I thought that this was the perfect place for my little scarecrow. He twirls in the wind of the ceiling fan.(I don’t have a yard or front porch so when I was given this as a gift one year I thought.. well I guess I will make do with this somewhere in the house. So this is where he made home!)
I bought this cute pumpkin table topper at Wal-Mart just to add a little something to my kitchen counter. Only $.098.
When I have more space to store the decorations and the room to decorate I will be going all out! I just love decorations (especially fall and Christmas) so I have dreams of decorating one day soon!
