Melted - Front Porch Candle Co. / Lemon Cookies

Lemon Cookies - (In House Blend) Lemon anything is my favorite,
this scent combines lemon with sweet sugary cookies.

I seem to be in love with lemon scents at the moment, and I have a bunch of them in my Front Porch stash.  This one super yummy.  It is most definitely lemon ... bright and sort of tart ... but it's also sweet and a bit soft from the cookie notes.  The cookie in this one isn't as distinct as in the Mrs. Claus' Cookies post from earlier today.  Sometimes there is an almost cheesecake-like note in there.
I melted this entire 1 oz. tart in my tea light warmer and had medium scent and throw.  It was interesting because sometimes it seemed stronger the farther away from the warmer I got.  It scented the room my warmer is in quite nicely, easily noticeable but not too strong, and then there were hints of creamy lemon loveliness traveling slightly into the adjacent rooms.  It did fade slightly by the end of one tea light burn (about four hours) but I could still smell it lightly in the air.

A winner scent-wise, just wish it had been a smidge stronger.

  1. Love Front Porch's lemon scents! I haven't melted this one but you've got me wanting to. I noticed cheesecake-like notes in a lot of cookie blends too, I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    1. Ok, good because I wasn't sure it was cheesecake that I was thinking of. Glad I'm not crazy. lol

    1. Definitely! I had left the wax sitting in the warmer since the tea light burned out, and when I smelled it this morning I found it still has quite a lot of scent. I might have to fire this one up again! :)

  3. Front Porch does have amazing lemon scents...but have you noticed that many of them smell like fruit loops/fruit cereal, or am I going crazy???

    1. I don't really get a fruit loops/cereal scent. I've noticed they kinda remind me of those Lemonhead candies, and that's fine. I'm not too picky about my lemon scents.

      I am on a huge lemon kick right now.

    2. Lemon is quintessential summer! Lemonheads helped my mom quit smoking, no lie! :)

    3. I used to eat Lemonheads a lot as a kid because they were one of the three 10cent boxes of candy that the local store had. Lemonheads, Red Hots, and Boston Baked Beans. When you were a kid and couldn't scrounge up enough money for a luxury Snickers or something, there was always the 10cent boxes! LOL

      I wonder what they cost now? I doubt you can even get them in that single size like we used to. Yeah, I'm old.

    4. Totally remember that :D They were down on the bottom row/rack of that aisle, right?

      I'm still shocked at how much candy bars, cans of pop, and Hostess-y (well, not Hostess anymore ... WAAH) things cost now. My mind goes back to how much it used to cost at the store those summers or after school when I was in middle school, like that's how much they're *supposed* to cost or something. Lol. Candy bars, 35 cents. Pop 50 cents (or if you got a 16 oz. bottle, which were the heavy glass ones!, 60 cents? Hostess stuff (remember the pudding pies??), maybe 65 cents? Agh.

      Once in awhile I'll have a dream that I'm in that store. Very odd. I'm shocked at how well I remember it.

    5. Yep, they were on the bottom. And I find myself thinking about that store quite a lot. Sometimes I try to walk through the entire store in my mind just to keep it all in my memory ... like what was in each aisle.

      About prices - I know! Several years ago I had a total brain fart in Brandon gas station. The boys were much younger and each wanted a candy bar. So when the cashier said the total I actually exclaimed "WHAT?! For two candy bars?!" and then instantly realized 'Yeah, duh, things are a lot more expensive now' and felt like a total dork.

  4. LOL! That is sooo funny, that you actually said that. Like, really really funny. But that's laughing with you, not at you, 'cause I get it .....

    I was trying to do the same thing, remember each aisle, when I was commenting before. It's weird that this store has such a hold on our subconscious--what's up with that?

    But yeah, there was the door to the room in the back, in the middle of the back wall, the pop cooler in front an aisle or so to the left of the counter (when facing the counter); rack of Hostess stuff near there. Did they put in a freezer case along the front wall in the later years? I'm remembering the pizzas being there, but then I'm thinking that's wrong.

    I remember before they put that pop cooler in, there were six-packs of pop in the low cooler "cupboard" things on the north wall, at the rightmost corner, and if you wanted one can, you just pulled it off the six-pack.

    The magazine shelf was at the front-of-the-store end of the aisle just left of the counter (if you were facing the counter), right? I had a dream sometime in the last year or so that I was in there looking at one of those magazines that had song lyrics in them.

    Weird.

  5. The freezer ran along the front wall, under the windows, and had the ice cream bar singles and I think pizzas and stuff. Yep, the little door to grab single cans of pop! Magazine rack, yeah, and to the left of that was the big rack of chips.

    Remember immediately behind the door when you came in? That's where the paper, notebooks, pens, pencils, etc. were.

    The door at the back of the store, haha, yep, always remember. And the pet food to the left (and right?) of that, on the back wall.

    Ohhhh, love the old memories. *dreamy sigh*

  6. Was the freezer a tall one with vertical doors like in regular grocery stores? That's how I'm seeing it, but that doesn't make sense with the windows.

    Oh yeah, I remember the school supply type stuff over there! I had forgotten.

    I'm remembering the chip rack being at the end of an aisle, back by the back door. ?

    Yup, memories :)

    1. If you were facing the front windows and turned around, there was an upright (vertical doors) freezer right at the end of that aisle. I can't remember what was in there. Maybe cans/bottles of pop?

      Ok, the chips in the back seems somewhat familiar. What was right next to the magazines then? And where the heck was the bread???

  7. Bread ... first aisle toward the end? (?)

    1. Ooh ooh ooh! Wasn't it in the last aisle, like if you were getting milk out of the back cooler and turned toward the front of the store, the long freezer/coolers were on the left and the bread was on the shelves on the right?

      This is all so incredibly pointless and funny.
