First impression of Lemon Pound Cake:
Julia already reviewed Lemon Pound Cake from Village Candle but I decided to give it a go myself just for the heck of it. I am such a huge fan of bakery lemon scent. Plus, every nose is different so – what the heck! Here I go!
Scent description for Lemon Pound Cake:
A smile. A treat. A pop of something light and bright. Our Lemon Poundcake fragrance evokes the happy comforts of this favorite indulgence. Airy, fluffy and fruity with traditional notes of vanilla and a rich swirl of hazelnut, this is the perfect mood booster!
My perfect lemon pound Cake smells like cake first with sweet lemon cream coming in second. I am all about the CAKE!! Yummy, fluffy, and warm, melt-in-your-mouth cake!! Sniffing Village Candle’s Lemon Pound Cake, I didn’t smell a whole lot of cake, but I did lemon and it smelled pretty good. It smelled sweet but had a twang I wasn’t sure I liked. Reading the description, that twang had to be the hazelnut. That definitely threw me a little.
Time to light this baby up!
I lit my Lemon Pound Cake candle in my master bedroom and even though I probably should have moved it to a smaller room, I still left it. The wicks lit right up and a melt pool formed in no time. The aroma…. a nice lemon bakery. I still wasn’t smelling a whole lot of cake, it was more like a lemon and creamy vanilla which actually matches the scent description to a T. Yep, I smelled equal amounts of sweet and creamy lemon, vanilla along with teeny hints of hazelnut. I still wasn’t crazy about the hazelnut but as a lemon lover… it was still a pretty good lemon bakery scent.
Strength – I would rate Lemon Pound Cake from Village Candle a 6 out of 10 in a really large room. I burned this one in a large room and I should have moved it. My bad. A medium to smaller room would have been much stronger. I’m guessing an 8 out of 10 in a medium room. 10 in a small.
How Did My Lemon Pound Cake Candle Burn?
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end. Also, very little wick maintenance. I still kept an eye on the candle but I do love that!
Closing To My Review:
Lemon Pound Cake from Village was pretty good. I wouldn’t say it’s the “ultimate” lemon pound cake but I enjoyed it. Just imagine a creamy lemon vanilla with a hint of hazelnut.
Lemon Pound Cake is a staple scent at Village Candle so you can purchase this fragrance directly from their website or various stores that carry Village Candles. My local grocery store carries this brand so I’m lucky. I get to stiff before purchasing.
Happy candle hunting!
