Yankee Candles - Tarts & Tart Burner thingy

So, I guess most people have heard of these.. I never had, until very recently when I bought one by accident thinking it was a 'mini' candle. I was then left totally perplexed as to how on earth to burn the little Tart I handn't been able to stop sniffing since I picked it up. After a bit of google-ing I had become fully educated in the art of the tart: you need a burning apparatus to be able to extract the scent from these little things.

On a trip to Sainsbury's, a day or so later, to do my usual food shop I managed to find a plain white, very dull looking, burner to use with my tart. Priced at a whopping £4.50 my husband thought I had gone a bit bonkers, but then again he thinks scented candles etc. are just a waste of money and space, until I light one and he comes home and goes, 'Oh something smells really lovely!'.

This burner did the job, but other than that I wasn't very impressed with it:

1) if I don't use a tea light/small candle in a little dish also then it just leaks out the sides and gets all over the place
2) it is seriously dull looking

Enter my new Tart burner that should resolve the above two issues:

Isn't it pretty!?! 

The lip on the edge looks like it is just about high enough to contain the melted wax from the candle I use.. we shall see....

Of course I took the opportunity to order a few more Tarts to try when I ordered the Tart burner online!

The scents I got were: 
4 x soft blanket
1 x fluffy towels
1 x baby powder

I ordered this burner from a company called TJ Reiki on Sunday afternoon for £14.99 and it arrived on Tuesday morning. Granted it is a bit more expensive than the Sainsbury's option, but I just think it's also a whole lot prettier too!

Have you tried any Yankee Candle Tarts? What do you think of them?
