Candle Spotlight – Yankee Candle Lemon Lavender

I’ve been revisiting old favorites this summer and one scent I’m always drawn to is Lemon Lavender from Yankee Candle.

Scent description from Yankee Candles site:

“Soothing and sweet lavender comes together with tangy lemon citrus to create a powdery fresh blend that’s clean and inviting. The combination of two classic fragrances offers lavender lovers the opportunity to enjoy the flower’s coveted scent in a fresh, new way. The candle’s soft purple color tones also offer up new opportunities for freshening up your candle-yankee-lemon-lavenderhome décor.”     

When I first tried this candle years ago to review for Candlefind, I was skeptical whether I would like it or not. I’m not a huge floral fan. Floral scents depending on strength can give me headaches. I ended up loving this fragrance and have tried many variations from different candle companies ever since. I always seem to come back to Yankee’s version though… it’s wonderful! The overall scent is very fresh and lemony with a perfect amount of lavender. It’s not too floral or lemony… it’s a perfect mix of both… an herbal – refreshing scent.

Lemon Lavender is available in all their candle jar sizes as well as votives, tealights. wax tarts and car candles so you have plenty of choices to select from.

I love to shop on all sites from big name brands to small mom and pop shops as well. I love it all. My favorite scents are bakery, everything lemon scented and all types of fruit scents. But, I'm open to anything given the opportunity. I hope my reviews and opinions help you along your way to finding the best candles!

  1. Oh, glad to know you like this one since I ordered a bunch of votives and melts in this scent (along with a number of other scents) during Yankee’s Labor Day Sale (thanks to a post here that alerted me to the sale.. lol). Whee!

  2. I just got a votive of this one in their sale so I’m glad to hear you like it. Lavender is a hard scent to nail right.
