Okay so as soon as I heard this was coming out I had to pick it up.  I totally love lemon scents as we all know (and if you are new to the blog, I love Love LOVE lemon scents)  so this was a must for me.  Of course it’s a bright yellow candle and I believe it to be apart of the Italian line that came out this spring.  Now, having tried this candle and other various lemon candles that BBW has put out, I have to say I think this candle smells like another lemon candle that has been out.  Perhaps it’s not the SAME but it’s pretty close.  Seriously, it reminds me a lot of Fresh Lemon.  It’s sweet lemon.  Not a lemonade but something less tart.  I really don’t care because I loved it! Now I didn’t go crazy and stock up but I did grab a couple of them (just to keep on hand).  Let me tell you about this candle’s throw….WOW! I swear sometimes these BBW candles fill my whole house and this one is no exception!  I actually had to blow it out and give it a rest (which is pretty awesome if I must say). BBW described this scent as:

"Cheers! Notes of Sorrento lemons, cane sugar and a hint of lemon zest capture Italy's beloved after-dinner liqueur, Limoncello.”

20130516_645I have to say that I was really impressed with this scent.  I know so many other companies have put these two fragrances together but I think everyone has their own idea as to what it is supposed to smell like.  For me, this is it.  It’s a nice calming and relaxing scent.  Not too herbal but not perfume-y either.  The vanilla is creamy but subtle.  It’s not like a super sugary sweet vanilla or a baking vanilla.  This is a great anytime scent but I like to melt/burn these types of fragrances in the bedroom.  It was not choke you out strong but it had a nice throw and easily filled my great room.  The Kringle website describes this scent as:

“Two classic scents that play well together. Honest, rich Vanilla meets one of the great understated florals.”

Throw: Medium

Worth It: Yes.  I’m not too crazy about lavender, it has to be just the right kind.  I did enjoy this one
