{tarts, glorious tarts}

Friday, May 21, 2010

I am sure that I have told you before about a fabulous home scent guru on eBay, Carol Wolstencroft, owner of Candles From the Keeping Room.

Carol's tarts are truly second to none and I no longer purchase my home scents from anyone else. Carol makes affordable, beautifully crafted wax tarts with the truest, most heavenly scents.

Last week, after burning a tart with hardly any scent throw (which means how far the scent carries through the house) from Yankee Candle Company, I knew it was time to order another box of tarts from Carol.

My box came earlier this week and I could not be more pleased with this order and I thought I'd share it with you this Friday afternoon.

Here's what I ordered:

*Cinnamon topped cuttable tart cake in Apple Jack & Peel ($2.95 for a whopping 4 ounces)

*Chunky muffin tart in a blend of French Crumb Cake and Mandarin Cranberry ($2.50 for 3.5 ounces)

*Caramelized Apple Praline chunky votive-style tart ($2.00 for 3 ounces)

*Sage & Citrus and Orange Juice chunky votive tart ($2.00 for 3 ounces)

*Iced cuttable tart cake in 7 Up Pound Cake ($2.95 for 4 ounces)

*Bag of 8 Lilac tarts ($4.75)

*Bag of 8 Cinnamon Bun tarts ($4.75)

First of all, these are truly the most heavenly scented tarts I have ever, ever tried. I've been buying Carol's tarts for a year or so and have never had a "dud" scent.

The prices are so reasonable as well. She offers a bag of 8 traditional tarts for $4.75. These are very similar in size to those found at Yankee Candle Company. Those are $1.99 each. I can cut Carol's traditional tarts in half and get 3 burnings from each half.

Carol also included some extras with my order. How kind! She was super generous, as always, and sent some wonderful scents:

Cinnamon Cookie Dough
Granny's Green Apple
Fruity Loops
Cookie Jar
Country Kitchen
Sage Pomegranate
Orange Strawberry Zucchini Bread

I just had to share these with you. I am burning a Lilac tart right now. I typically prefer bakery scents when it comes to candles and tarts, but the Lilac Festival is going on right now and I thought I'd get in the spirit by having the house smell like Rochester's Highland Park.
