First impression of Meyer Lemon Basil:

Oh my goodness! Now this was a scent I had to have and a lot of it. The wax smelled like the freshest lemon and it was too die for!! As many of you know and for those of you that don’t, lemon is the ultimate scent for me. It’s fresh, clean and just plain happy, and it always – always – puts a huge smile on my face, and this scent (based off cold sniff alone) smelled pretty darn perfect.

I couldn’t find a scent description for this scent (which bummed me out) but just imagine the freshest lemon with a teeny herbal vibe to it, and I mean teeny. This scent is definitely more lemon than anything else.

And just an FYI… Meyer Lemon Basil is a limited addition scent so if you’re interested, don’t wait. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.



I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting, it took seconds before the aroma was traveling through my home and it was everything I hoped it would be. Fresh lemon filled my great room and it was very uplifting, happy and vibrant. Nothing synthetic or fake about it. This wasn’t a lemonade type scent or too sugary. It was more of a fresh and zesty lemon with the perfect touch of sweetness. A scent you’ll want to melt when you want to bring sunshine and smiles into your home. It’s also so refreshing and strong, it’s probably odor neutralizing too so if you want to mask cooking or doggy smells, this would be a good scent to try.

Strength – I would rate this scent a 10 out of 10 in any size room. It’s super strong and in my book… perfect!

Lemon lovers… go smell this one. I bet you’ll fall in love. And keeping it real, it’s also becoming hard to find. Every time I check my local Walmart, it’s sold out which means it’s popular. If you see it, nab it. Don’t wait.

Happy melting!
