Candlefind Best Lemon Scented Candles

Looking for the best lemon candles? We are, too! Lemon is definitely a #1 favorite scent around here at Candlefind. From classic lemons, fresh and zesty aromas to bakery lemons and all the varieties in between. There are so many good ones out there that it is really hard to choose the best.

We frequently get asked about the best lemon candles. It’s hard because fragrances come and go out of a lineup, with new scents coming out all the time. Still, here are our choices for the best lemon scented candles that you can buy in 2022.


Amalfi Lemon & Mint

For a sophisticated lemon scent with the added zing of mint, NEST comes through. The candle vessel is gorgeous and the scent is divine. The fragrance is a bit on the stronger side and carries really well, so you definitely should keep that in mind.

Bath & Body Works

Sugared Lemon Zest

Sugared Lemon Zest is a delicious, sugary lemon treat. It is strong and sweet with just the right amount of tangy citrusy goodness. This one is a room filler, for sure!

Lemon Bergamot

For a different kind of lemony fragrance, DW Home’s Lemon Bergamot is a pure winner. It has the fresh, lemony notes with warm, earthy notes and the citrusy scent of bergamot. The jar is beautiful, too!

Yankee Candle

Sicilian Lemon

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!

Himalayan Trading Post

Sugared Lemon

Sugared Lemon from Himalayan Trading Post is available in several different styles and I must say, so many are very unique and gorgeous. The lemon here is sweet with the citrus notes smoothed out with touches of vanilla. Add in a bit of orange, and oh yeah…totally divine! They are on the pricier side, but aren’t we worth it?

Lemon Verbena

This candle smells clean and fresh with plenty of green notes. The hint of lemon is enough to give the fragrance a brightness without smelling like a cleaner. It’s strong enough to scent a medium sized room without being overbearing and may be perfect for those who are scent-sensitive.

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. If you’re looking for just a simple lemon scent that doesn’t smell like cleaning products, this one should fit the bill!

And that completes our suggestions for the best lemon scented candles this year. You can’t go wrong with any of the above. Whether you’re after clean, fresh or simply zesty. We love them all!

Happy candle hunting!
