Review || Yankee Candle Wax Tart and Burner

As most of you already know, I have an obsession with candles, especially if they are made by Yankee. I have recently found out what the tarts are used for! I always thought that they were mini candles but when I went in store and asked about the burner, the sales assistant told me that the tarts don't have wicks and are meant to be placed inside the burner to melt and create a scented oil which evaporates into air. I mean, how cool is that?!

I used the Summer Scoop tart as I got it for my birthday this year and wanted to try it out ever since! I honestly did not like the smell very much as it was too powerful for my liking. It was too sweet and heavy, whereas I prefer woody or bittersweet scents.

Winter favourite scents! Snowflake cookie and fireside treats.

My cute little Yankee candle collection!
Overall I loved the whole burner idea and will definitely stock up on loads more tarts! The fragrance that comes out of them is much better than the one out of the jar if you cannot afford it! It lasts a loooong time! A definite 10/10.
The best candle for this time of the year, It smells fantastic and makes you want to sit down with a good book and a cuppa and watch the rain fall outside the window.

What's your favourite Yankee candle? Do you recommend any? Please leave a comment below and let me know!

Soft Cotton
Vanilla Frosting
Snowflake Cookie
Merry Marshmallow
Just like every other girl, I love scented candles. My current favourites are Yankee Candles, as they will burn for many hours and the smell is never-ending as I don't have to light them up for them to give a nice smell. I had to buy a couple of the new festive candles: Snowflake Cookie, and Merry Marshmallow. Snowflake Cookie is by far my favourite as it is very sweet and you can actually smell the biscuit which is amazing! Merry Marshmallow is a fluffy bunny's favourite haha. It smells just like mini vanilla marshmallows. It's fantastic. 
Vanilla Frosting smells very buttery-like cake frosting should, and the hint of vanilla is very strong which fills the room up with lovely fresh-baked cake smell. 
I recently purchased Soft Cotton as I wanted a change form all the heavy and sweet scents. This candle smells like fresh laundry which makes me want to smell it all the time! I might just have to buy about 4 of these and spread them round in my bedroom or even in my wardrobe!
