As of April 21, 2020 our Lemon Pound Cake was revised to meet our stringent safety standards to remove ingredients on the Prop 65 list. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

The mouth-watering scent of freshly made Lemon Pound Cake evokes memories of summer picnics and kitchens filled with love. Bright lemon peel and juicy lemon give this bakery fragrance its signature citrus kick. Butter, sugar, and vanilla finish off this realistic gourmand cake fragrance.

Candles, wax melts, and reed diffusers made with this scent fill spaces with all the sugar and butter of a homemade iced lemon pound cake. Create delicious bath and body care products with this lemony scent. The sweetness of vanilla cake, and juicy lemon give your soaps, scrubs, and bath butters an indulgent aroma for daily pampering.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including orange, citronella, and eucalyptus.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was slow to come to a light trace and was easy to work with. However, be prepared for your batter to turn a dark pink color initially. After 24 hours, the soap had changed to a tan color and no longer had any traces of the pink we saw initially. We observed that the soap only reached a partial gel through the center of the loaf. The scent was deliciously strong. After 30 days, the scent is strong and the bars had discolored to a dark tan shade.

I now have to find another Lemon Pound Cake. :(


Great cold and hot throw. The original formulation smelled a bit stronger but I had trouble wicking. Very happy with the end result! Smells so yummy!!


Barely smell any lemon. However it does smell like a sweet pound or buttercream cake. Not bad, just not what I was looking for.


I was such a big fan of the original lemon pound cake scent that I named the candle in my store after my best friend. Now the fragrance smells like sunscreen. In comparison, the other one was light, buttery, cakey. This one is more of a spicy, chemical lemon scent. I'm upset, as it was a best-seller. It doesn't even smell comparable.

I made this candle last Friday, and I lit it Tuesday night at about 10, & by 10:05 it was giving off real lemon pound cake vibes. I love this.

this fragrance oil does not give off a hot throw scent. Its cold throw smells great, but once you burn all you can smell is the wick (even after curing for over two weeks).Have to use over the recommended amount to even get it to smell a little.

Not the same formula

I didnt care for the new reformulation of the lemon pound cake, didnt smell as strong and lemony as the origional.

This is a LOVE for myself and my testers and is sure to be a top seller at my shop! I was so excited about this one that I only waited 3 days to test the candle and got a great hot throw then, and after a week it was even better! The lemon is light but there, and the cake notes smell fantastic. One of my testers said it smelled so good they had to go buy a lemon pound cake. Winner!

Lemon Pound Cake

I just received my 1 oz Lemon Pound Cake and I think it might have been labeled incorrectly. It smells like Hazel Nut Cake. I barely smell lemon.


Smells amazing! I’m not even a food fragrance lover but this is a must have. Sweet with a citrus bright lemon kick. Just enough to look forward to back yard barbeque!


Love! Love! Love! Sweet but not too sweet with a lemony brightness is oh so yummy!
