Yankee Candle Newbie

I know I love looking at what other people have bought, so here's one of my latest buys. It's a Yankee wax tart burner. You buy wax discs to put in the top and light a tea light underneath. The heat from the candle melts the wax and releases the scent.
Amazon £5.95

I never used to know about these and just thought they were oil burners. I only found out when I bought this candle, opened it and found it had no wick because it's a wax tart!

A lush, relaxing scent that smells like the garden but not too floral!

So obviously then I had to go and buy some more to use in the burner. Each one is supposed to last 8 hours, but I haven't stuck to one for that long yet. When you blow the candle out they harden up again and you can interchange them, so that's what I've been doing.


Can't wait 'til all the Christmas ones come back in the shops!

Have you used any Yankee products?

  1. Oh wow I love this idea! And the holder is so cute too :) I may have to purchase me one of those!


  2. They're great, our house smells lush now :)

  3. I made the same mistake of thinking they had a wick! haha. I have the cherry blossom jar atm but I like you love the christmas ones - especially christmas cupcake. There is a halloween range coming out too. I cannot wait.

    P:S New follower I am trying to get my followers up at the moment so if you like what you see I will greatly appreciate your follow :).


  4. If they bring out a pumpkin scented one then I'll be sold. For some reason I love the smell of them, but not the taste! I haven't seen the Christmas cupcake before but will check it out this year. I bought a few in the January sales and put them away with my decorations and now I can't remember what they are so it'll be a nice surprise!

  5. I love their candles :), havent tried their melts yet we have Scentsy here in the states and man am I hooked, But sometimes I just need a good candle :)
