American Home Wax Melts-Yankee Candle

If you’ve been a follower of mine for any length of time, you have probably heard of my luck with Yankee products or as I call it the Yankee Curse. Candles and tarts from this company just do not preform well for me. When I heard that the company had changed up a few things this year including the formula on a few of their products I thought I would give them another shot. That is when I picked up a handful of tarts and a candle (which I will be reviewing in another post) at my local Wal-Mart from their American Home collection. 

Product: 2.6 oz , 6 shot clamshell 

Price: $3.58 

Warmer Used: Glade 20W. 

The directions call to use one ‘shot’ or round at a time.

“An island fruit cocktail of tangy oranges and pineapple, sweet mango and peaches, and soft white coconut — just add a warm ocean breeze and a colorful umbrella”

This smells strangely familiar. Sugary and familiar. I believe it to be the same scent of Tropical Twist Trident Gum. Very good and throws wonderfully. I would repurchase this one. 

The fresh, outdoor scent of a lazy afternoon lying beneath the trees and staring at the sunlit leaves above”

This threw like a beast! At first it almost burned my nose and throat but it mellowed out more as it melted. Very clean like dial soap or shampoo type with maybe a hint of bamboo leaves. 

A refreshing mix of fresh citrus with a dash of red cherry that puts a sweet face on the hottest summer day”

Cherry slushie topped with a slice of citrus fruit chilled and forming a layer of ice crystals over the top and side of the glass

Overall I am happy with the results. I can report back that all of these threw very strong for several hours. It is so great to finally get good performance from a Yankee brand! Not to mention the ease of purchase to just walk into a Wal-Mart and grab them off the shelf. 

Have you tried any fragrances from the American Home collection?

Until Next Melt,

    Haven’t tried anything from American Home, but I’ve found I’ve had better results with Yankee stuff in the last year, particularly the tarts. Had a bit of a dud with Peeps recently, but it was already a very, very light scent – didn’t have much presence warm or cold.

      Really? I may need to pick up a tart or two than and give them a whirl with the new formula. Yeah, I’ve always wanted to try peeps since everyone raves about it but I figured it would be light.
