Today I'm back with another Yankee Candle review for you all, it was my birthday recently and my friend Kate from Kate's Closet kindly bought me some presents, two of which where Yankee Candle Tarts, one in Vanilla Bourbon which I'll be reviewing today and the other was Pineapple Cilantro, shes knows me so well he he.
Vanilla Bourbon is one of the new Yankee Candle scents released for the Autumn this year and is described as a 'traditional warm-me-up on a cold winter's day. A mug full of something steaming topped with a layer of thick vanilla cream and laced with a dash of strong bourbon', and I have to say it smells as good as it sounds, its divine. The scent of Vanilla Bourbon itself once it gets going in the tart warmer is very creamy and mocha like, think of the scent you get when you order a mocha in Starbucks or Costa and add the sweetness of vanilla and caramel to it with the ever so slight dash of bourbon which adds a bit of spice and that's exactly what Vanilla Bourbon smells like. It such a homely scent too and I definitely agree with the 'warm-me-up' claim in the description, I feel like this scent is perfect for burn when it's really cold and miserable outside and you just want to feel all snug and cosy, it really is a gorgeous scent. In terms of strength and how much scent Vanilla Bourbon throws out I'd say it's a medium to high, it's not over powering but it's definitely noticeable and fills the house within minutes of it melting within the warmer. Vanilla Bourbon is most definitely a hit with me and I'll be repurchasing it over the Autumn season that's for sure, if you like anything warming with hints of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and spicy bourbon then your going to love Vanilla Bourbon!
All the Yankee Candle wax tart melts claim to provides up to 8 hours of fragrance but personally I find they last sooooo much longer, I can literally have the wax tarts burning in my tart burner for weeks and they still fragrance the entire house which is amazing and such great value for money considering they only set you back £1.49 each.
Have you tried the new Vanilla Bourbon scent beaut's?? What did you think?? I'd love to know!!
