Lemon is definitely my #1 favorite scent of all time! I love lemon scents in all forms and blends from classic, fresh and zesty aromas to bakery lemons and all the variables in between. Lemon Rind! Lemon Meringue Pie! Lemon Pound Cake! Lemon Squares! Lemonade! Lemon Verbena! Lemon Zest! There are so many good ones out there that I will never tire of. The only lemon fragrances I don’t care for are the lemon cleaner versions. You know the ones I’m talking about? They smell fake and synthetic or take on a fuel smell.
I get asked all the time what are the best lemon scented candles out there and it’s tough to answer because fragrances come and go all the time so the answer will likely change each year as new fragrances launch. For 2019, here are my choices on tried and true lemon scents that ROCK and also ones I’m dying to try!!!
Limoncello from White Barn
Sorrento Lemons, Cane Sugar, Lemon Zest
Lemon lovers… one sniff of this candle and you’ll be smiling. Pure fresh lemon goodness!!
Sunwashed Citrus – Bath & Body Works
Sorrento Lemons, Citron, Agave Nectar
Sun-Washed Citrus is too die for!! One of the best and fresh lemon scents I’ve tried in a long, long time! It’s not listed on Bath & Body Works site right now but it is available in stores so definitely check it out next time you’re in their store.
Perfect Lemon – Pier 1 Imports
Lemon zest, Lemon, lime, bergamot, Mandarin orange, white pomelo
I cannot even begin to tell you how lemony fresh this candle is! The moment I smelled the wax, I smiled and just inhaled this one. It is lightly scented so if you give this one a try, stick to a small to medium size room.
Lemon Coco – Voluspa
Tart Lemon Rind, White Sugar Lemonade, Marshmallow Vanille Crème
Mmmm!! Lemon lovers! Can’t you just smell it? Tart lemons, sugary lemonade with the perfect dollop of whipped marshmallow creme.
Sicilian Lemon – Yankee Candle
So fresh and full of zest, like a bright day exploring hillside villages with sweet unexpected turns.
Love or hate Yankee Candle, Sicilian Lemon is pretty darn fresh and wonderful. I’ve found it’s best to burn this one in smaller rooms for the best scent throw but oh man…. it’s a winner!
Sugared Lemon – Himalayan Trading Post
Enjoy this scent that blends lemon, orange peel, berries, vanilla and cashmere.
Lemon Peel from Hilalayan Trading Post is available in several different styles and I must say, very unique and gorgeous styles. They are on the pricier side but when it comes to indulging our candle passion… we’re worth it!
Lemon Rind – Kringle Candle Co
Lemon Rind, Meyer Lemon, Lime Leaf, Pomelo, Musk, Tea Rose
Just an FYI… I don’t smell musk or tea rose in this scent whatsoever. Lemon Rind is all meyer lemon and pomelo. A clean, fresh and crisp lemon that will have you smiling in appreciation. Just start in a medium size room and go from there.
Limonata – Shining Sol Candle Co
Limonata is simply described as the fresh scent of lemon and that’s exactly what this candle smells like. My favorite part is the wooden wick and the lovely and soft sound effects of Shining Sol Candles. It’s not just the aroma you experience but the sound and ambiance. I love this brand!
And that candle lovers completes my suggestions for lemon scented candles this year. You can’t go wrong with any of the above. Whether you’re after clean, fresh or simply zesty. I love them all!
Happy candle hunting!
