Thank you Yankee for bringing this back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This candle is great it has a touch of sweetness mixed in with the tart. It is very clean fresh scent with a strong throw! As I mentioned in the review I wrote about the tarts my hubby is a chef so he cooks a lot, this is a great candle to burn to eliminate odors left by cooking! It truly is fabulous! I have a huge Yankee collection this is one of my favorites for every day and all year long use! Everyone that has come into my home is very surprised how great this smells ! Thank you Yankee for listening to us true Yankee fans and bringing this back! Please please put it back in stores and bring the tarts back too ! That would be Amazing!!

Way Too Sweet, But Not the "Clean" Lemon Scent Like Most of the Other Y.C. Lemon Scents
I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to this scent as I just don't like the super sweet type of scent this candle gives off. I got this one as a gift from a friend who knows how much I like the lemon scents & how she always thinks my house smells good due to my YC products. I had tried this in the tarts & just couldn't stand them either. Even when smelling the candle unlit, it reminds me of candy (like lemonheads!) I saw another review that said it reminded her of fruit loops & my husband strongly agrees with that description. We use so many of the lemon scented based tarts & candles & LOVE them all due to how clean they leave the house smelling without ever being overbearing. Lemon Zest isn't for you in my opinion if you like the scents like Lemon Lavender or the even more subtle lemon that is in the Clean Cotton line. If your looking for a truly strong, sweet smelling lemon scent, this might be up your alley. If you like the candles or tarts with any lemon in them for the way the make you home smell clean without being overbearing, I'd steer clear of this one or try this in a smaller size if they come back out one that's less expensive to try first. I rarely give a bad review, but Lemon Zest in both the wax tarts & candles leaves my house smelling like a candy store instead of a clean home. Sorry YC, this one just was nothing but a disappointment for me & my family.

FINALLY, LEMON IS HERE
I have tried almost all the "lemon" scents YC has put out and have been disappointed until this one and this is by far the best. It is crisp, clean and has a nice throw. If you are into the citrus smells and have been waiting for a good one, you must purchase this..

My favorite candle ever
Lemon Zest is a very fresh scent. It is perfect for all seasons.

Sweet Lemony Scent
This definitely has a sweeter lemon scent. I was hoping it was going to be more lemony than sweet. It still smells very nice though. I use it in my living area and the scent fills the entire area.

I LOVE this candle. My favorite scent in pretty much anything, including perfume or body lotions, is a soft lemon vanilla, but NOT bakery. This candle is in that sweet spot for sure. The color is perfect, a sunny yellow, and I love the picture of lemons on the label. Then, the throw is excellent! Fills up the whole downstairs in my open plan condo. When lit, there is a very slight waffle cone note here in addition to the lemon and vanilla--mentioned by my husband first, then I started noticing it. He said he started craving a lemon ice cream treat in a waffle cone the first time I had this burning. :) I agree, it's very sweet lemon but not like a lemon cake.

More Zest Please
I don't hate this candle, it clearly states lemon with a hint of vanilla. Only thing I feel like it's the other way around, vanilla with a hint of lemon. I really, really, wanted a bright, zingy, extremely bright lemon scent. I thought it would be more like when you peel a little of a lemon rind off. That strong citrus scent, sadly no that's not what I get. It's more of a lemon pound cake. It's nice, but just not me.

Not as lemony as hoped.
Was really hoping for a fresh, bright, clean lemon with this one, and a good throw. However, when I smell it I don't think "lemon," I think, "Froot Loops." Because that's exactly what it smells like! It's pleasant but not as zingy as I want a lemon scent to be. It's quite sweet. And the throw is not great. Going to keep searching for a perfect lemon scent...
