Lemon Drop Soho Brights Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Soho Brights by Illume
Type: 15.3oz Candle Tin
Fragrance: Lemon Drop
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Lemon Drop:
Oh my goodness… LOVED!! First of all, cute candle. The tin was hefty and the coloring a bright sapphire blue and yellow labeling over a gold colored tin. It was very bright and cheery. Loved it! Just an FYI… Soho Brights candles are manufactured by Illume and can be found at Target Department stores. Very cute brand and worth checking out. I’m really enjoying them.
I couldn’t find a scent description for this fragrance but just imagine a sweet and tart lemon candy. I am a lemon freak and this candle truly smelled just like the classic sweet lemon drops. I was practically clapping my hands in glee, I was so excited to light this baby up!
And that happens right now!!
I decided to stay conservative and light this candle in a small room to start out and that’s where it stayed till the last drop of wax. Once the wicks were lit, it took a good four hours to reach a full melt pool and the aroma… lemon drop candies all the way. I smelled a fresh lemon mixed with lots of sugar and tartness. Yep, Lemon Drop candies all the way. Loved it.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a really small room. 5 in a medium and wouldn’t even attempt burning this candle in a large room. To me, this candle gave the perfect scent throw in a really small room. Anything larger and the fragrance would be too diluted.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned fine but very slow. Even with two wicks it took hours with each lighting to reach a decent melt pool and even then, the wax never fully melted along the walls of the tin. Not a huge deal but something I always like to point out. Other than that, great burn. No soot.
Closing to my review:
I loved Lemon Drop and would totally purchase this candle again. Yes, it was light but I kind of suspected that when I purchased it. I burn lightly scented candles in my bathrooms so it all works out.
Check out this candle should you see it at your local Target. If you love sweet lemon scents, it’s a good one. I loved it!
Happy candle hunting!
