First impression of Lemon Zest:Â
I have no idea why itâ€™s taken me so long to purchase this aromatherapy candle. Lemon Zest? It had my name written all over it. Add aromatherapy and with the title â€œEnergyâ€ and I was triple sold.
Here is the scent description for Lemon Zest:
Made with lemon essential oil and ginseng.
Mmmm!! I love aromatherapy candles and when you smell the wax, you can tell right away. The wax smelled soothing and a perfect sweet lemon to boot. I was smiling with my eyes already closed and hadnâ€™t even lit the wicks yet.
Now letâ€™s see if this candle is as relaxing and soothing as Iâ€™m hoping it will be.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and waited for the magic to begin. 20 minutes in and I was in heaven. The aroma wafting through my bedroom and open bathroom was a very fresh and soothing lemon. The kind that still smells clean and fresh but it also smelled soothing and relaxing. Was it my imagination since â€œaromatherapyâ€ was tied to the name? I wonder about that sometimes but in this case, this fragrance did smell pretty darn relaxing. Every time I walked into my bedroom, I stopped to take deep breathes of this fragrance in pure appreciation. I donâ€™t do that very often.
Did I smell ginseng? Hard to say since I donâ€™t know what that smells like. I looked it up and itâ€™s a Chinese herb that smells woody. I didnâ€™t smell wood notes in this scent, just a sweet lemon with soothing properties. So as far as this scent goesâ€¦ just imagine a really soothing lemon that wasnâ€™t zesty at all. It was sweet but not bakery sweetâ€¦ just soothing sweet, like a lemon oil. I hope that doesnâ€™t confuse you. LOL! Just go smell it next time youâ€™re at a Bath & Body Works store to see for yourself. Youâ€™ll see what I mean.
Strength â€“ I would rate this candle a 9 out of 10 in a large room. 10 and above in medium to smaller rooms. I loved the strength of this candle. It gave a really steady and strong aroma from start to finish.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:Â
I thoroughly enjoyed Lemon Zest and plan on purchasing a few more to keep on hand. Iâ€™m not sure if this candle is made from 100% pure essential oils but I still thought it was a decent fragrance and an excellent and soothing lemon. Give it a try if you love sweet lemon scents.
If you donâ€™t see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works site, try one of their stores. They donâ€™t always carry every scent on their website. I donâ€™t know why that is.
Happy candle hunting!
