American brand Paddywax have been producing candles since 1996. The brand contains nine ranges which are all housed in different glass or ceramic containers. I picked up Fresh Meyer Lemon from the Blue Apothecary range because I was in the market for a candle from my kitchen.
I’m on a bit of a health kick at the moment. I am spending alot my time in my kitchen preparing food from scratch. On the weekends I batch cook meals for the week. Prepping and cooking different cuts of fish and meat is a task and a nice smelling candle always helps when scaling fish or taking the giblets out of a chicken – my least favourite jobs.
Lemon is one of my favourite scents in the kitchen it just smells cleans and fresh. Fresh Meyer Lemon does not smell like a freshly cut lemon. It is not a sharp or zingy, rather it is sweet and almost (but not quite) sherberty. It does not have the best throw of fragrance but it does leave a pleasant background aroma in the room.
Not really the kitchen fragrance that I had hoped for in terms of cleansing my kitchen of odours but still a nice fragrance. I have plans for the blue glass jar once the candle has burnt out – it will make a beautiful vase for some of my favourite purple blooms.
