Subtle but pleasant
The quality of this candle's smell is very nice, somewhat like a lemon drop candy. The intensity is low, as other commenters have noted, but not zero. After a while sitting in the room where the candle was burning I no longer noticed it consciously, but I could definitely smell it if I left the room for a while and then came back later. It's probably better for adding a subliminal background brightness to the air, rather than bold LEMON! scent.

I Love ALL things Citrus, But....
Like other reviews must say this one is nowhere near strong enough.
I want a scent to fill a large room with 14' ceilings. I'm okay when it fills the smallest of rooms. This one did neither.

Lovely frangrance, but very weak throw
I was very excited to try this candle because I loved the fragrance, but once I lit it I couldn't smell anything. Literally anything. Even when I moved it to the smallest room in the house the smell was barely there. I bought the European version as well (it's called Sicilian lemon) hoping it would be stronger, but once again ended up disappointed. Sparkling lemon is a better alternative.

This scent is so refreshing. Just makes me feel good. I use tarts and votives because I like to have a variety of scent options rather than the same one all the time. I have a warmer at work and my customers are always wondering what the fragrance of the week is. I have gotten more compliments on this fragrance than any other. I actually came back and bought 10 more votives.

Very little scent
This candle burns very quickly and the lemon scent is faint,
I love the citrus scents, this was a big disapointment

Scent Too Vague
I love anything with a lemon scent, but was very disappointed in the strength of this one. It is a wonderful smell, but you have to be on top of the candle to smell the scent. Years ago YC had another lemon scent, the name escapes me at the moment, but it was fantastic. Was expecting a similar experience with the Meyer Lemon. I have noticed a few candles recently doesn't seem to have the strength when burning, and I have also read other reviews stating the same thing. Guess it just isn't me. I am an avid YC collector, and this is disappointing.

Weak scent for me but family liked it.
I like the stronger throws but this one was very weak for me. I love lemon scents so I was a bit disappointed, however, others in the family loved it and thought it had a nice throw. Because they liked it, I would have given Lemon Meyer votive a 3.5. If you like a slight lemony fragrance, this is worth a try.

I had high hopes!
I am a huge fan of anything Meyer Lemon and fell in love with this scent after I unwrapped my votive. It smelled so clean and crisp and I was excited to burn it! I was let down after burning though. The votive had no throw...so I went through 2 more and still the same thing. I have to be standing directly over the candle to smell anything.
