Sunday Scents: Yankee Candle Wax Tart in “Soft Cotton”

April 27, 2014


My love of Yankee Candles has been ongoing for many years now. I’m always on the look out for cheap wax tarts to fill up my oil burners and usually have a good stash in the cupboard. When Gem told me that Asda had these tarts for as little as a pound, I had to get in on it. I usually pay between £0.99 and £1.50 per tart when I get them from the internet so it’s handy to know I can pop down the road to pick up some of these treasures for around the same price.

For those that have never tried a tart before, you simply use it in place of oil in a burner, place your candle underneath and leave the aroma to brighten up the room. I prefer them to scented candles as I think you get more of a fragrance out of them. The burn time is allegedly 8 hours per tart but I’ve found it varies depending on the fragrance. My recent Cinnamon and Sugar tart probably kept it’s fragrance for around this time but my Black Cherry tart is used at least once or twice a week and has been going for over a year and a half.

I’ve not tried the Soft Cotton wax tart before, but it has a beautiful light and airy smell, it reminds me a little of Febreeze, which I absolutely love and it’s perfect to burn in the bathroom to give the upstairs a nice gentle aroma. I’ve also found that this scent isn’t too heavy but since using it, has left the whole of my upstairs smelling absolutely beautiful.

The other advantage of wax tarts is that they can be easily removed from your oil burner and stored somewhere else if you fancy burning something else. I usually burn mine until they stop smelling and for my smaller burners, I break off a little of the tart at  a time which makes them last longer.

Ultimately I think this is yet another Tart to add to my favourites collection and I’ll definitely be putting this in my shopping trolley again.

For a range of Yankee Candle tarts you can visit The Scented Candle Shop website for some great deals, alternatively if you want to try a more limited range, visit your local Asda and pick them up for just £1!

Totally hellbent for a beautiful cotton bathroom smell that combats the post walkies bath, wet doggy smell.

    Do Yankee still make Clean Cotton or has this replaced it? Clean cotton used to be my favourite. That and the Christmas foodie ones like Christmas Cookie. Soo good!

    I like most of the Yankee scented candles. I bought a number of the Yankee Candle melts as part of a present for my Grandsister . The whole family love them and their house smell fantastic.
    Thanks !!
