Citronella is a summery scent that's use to keep mosquitoes away. People either love or hate this scent, although it brings back memories of outdoor gatherings in the summer, with citronella candles on the picnic table. Citronella is an interesting scent, and not something you'd normally want the inside of your house to smell like. It has kind of a grassy but pungent soapy smell, not very sweet, and a little like lemon verbena but without a true lemon note. I see that these scents consist of 90% citronella and only 10% of the other scent; I would have liked to have had a greater percentage of the other scent, since I really just smelled the citronella. However, it's a true citronella scent, the real deal, using the real citronella oil!

I didn't test the mosquito fighting ability of these melts. But if you're going to use them outside, it makes more sense to buy the candles rather than the wax melts, unless you're using the melts in a tealight warmer which of course does not require electricity.


Lavender Citronella
Notes: 90% citronella and 10% lavender

I smell citronella, with a barely detectable hint of lavender. If I didn't know lavender was the other note, I wouldn't detect it. It's a slightly "softer" citronella. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Lemongrass Citronella
Notes: 90% citronella and 10% lemongrass

Of course the main note is citronella, but I do smell just a hint of lemongrass in the background. This one is the most "citronella-y" of these 4 scents. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Lime Cilantro Citronella
Notes: 90% citronella and 10% lime cilantro

Like the other two scents above, I just smell citronella. But there's a smidgeon of the lime in there, although if I didn't know it were in there I would probably not detect it. This one smells slightly more soapy (in a good way) and less intense than the Lemongrass Citronella. Throw was very good, 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Orange Citronella
Notes: 90% citronella and 10% orange

This is the only citronella out of the 4 citronella scents where I can definitely detect the other non-citronella note. This is a good combination of citronella and orange. But throw was only fair, 2.5 or maybe 3 out of 5.
