The fragrance has an amazing cold throw but when lit the hot throw is very weak. I love the scent and it is a bestseller amongst my costumers.

No scent throw

I know you’re supposed to cure candles at least two weeks. However, I always conduct a burn test on my newly made candles within 48 hours to be sure I don’t need to change the wick to something bigger or smaller depending. I can always smell some fragrance with other fragrances even with such a short curing time frame. I notice this fragrance is dense much like the Very Vanilla. I’ve made this scented candle twice using CD 18 wick and now CD 22 and I still don’t smell anything. I’m using yellow dye, so I need a bigger wick naturally. I even put the candle in my bathroom and shut the door. Still nothing. The Lemon Pound Cake has an excellent cold and hot throw. That will be my go to for a lemon scented candle.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're sorry to hear this fragrance has given you issues with hot throw. Fragrances can vary in how long they need to cure for scent throw, and Lemon Verbena could be one that needs the full two weeks. We'd recommend allowing the full two-week curing time if you decide to keep testing this fragrance. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to provide further assistance.

Great blending scent

Always count on a nice lemony scent with this as it blends well and holds its “place”

Lemon Surprise

This is a popular summer scent. I also think it would be great in soaps. To me, it smells JUST like Lemon Zotz - the old fashioned hard candy that sizzles in your mouth.

Most popular soap

I adore this scent. I was my friend's and families favorite as well. Cured wonderfully and after months it has stayed true. 5 stars.

Best FO

Amazing for CP. Everyone who ordered a bar (or 10) loved it and will be back for more. I am ordering more. I colored with yellow mica and titanium dioxide. I called it Lemon Drop. Strong scent but in a lovely way.

Last minute buy!

We bought this one at the last minute before our craft fair and boy did it sell good. Amazing HT & CT. We use 464. We love this one.

A Potent Lemon Experience

Despite being named for the plant, this scent easily passes for lemon the fruit. By itself you get just a bit of that sour tartness but I'm sure if could be blended with something sugary to make more of a dessert lemon. This FO is very powerful, so I only use it at 6% in my 464 soy wax and get good hot and cold throw.

Pretty darn good

I’m not a huge lemon verbena fan but I have customers who are and this is the one they seem to like best. So this is the one I will be using. It behaves pretty well in CP. Candles and wax melts are strong as heck.
