REVIEW: Yankee Candle North Pole Tart

Christmas Yankee Candle tarts are my favourite, I would burn them year round if it was acceptable. For years I have wanted to get my hands on the North Pole scent but it isn't available in the UK which makes me super sad, however I was able to track down this tart on eBay a couple of months ago and paid far too much for it but I am so happy to have it in my life and I know I am going to need to track down a couple more.
Yankee Candle North Pole Tart
North pole is described as being a mixture of Vanilla and Mint - my perfect combination. This scent is incredible, it is very sweet due to the vanilla but at the same time there is a freshness to it from the mint and I am obsessed. This scent would definitely be burned year round I think because it doesn't have too a Christmas scent however it is called North Pole - the home of Santa Claus. What you smell in the tart is what you get when it comes to burning it which I love, I have found with a couple of tarts before that they smell different once they have starting melting so I am glad that's not the case with this one.

When it came to melting the tart, within a couple of minutes my room began to fill with fragrance, it isn't sickly or too over powering which I love. The scent lingered out of my bedroom and you can actually smell it as you walk up the stairs which I love. The vanilla and mint smell very true to scent and not at all artificial. I definitely got my 8 hours of burn time out of this tart if not more, I tend to use a tart for three uses at a couple of hours each time and the scent kick off was the same every time, very impressed. 

I would definitely recommend this scent however it is a bit hard to get hold of as it is a US exclusive, however Yankee Direct have the large jar in stock for £12.99 and Yankee Addicts have it in stock in crumble pot form (exclusive to them) so I would check out those sites if you do want to get your hands on it. 

Have you tried North Pole? What did you think?

  2. I've never heard of this either, but I wanted to comment and compliment your description! Sometimes people talk about candles without ever really describing the scent. So mint and vanilla, stronger on the vanilla. Got it. Lol.
