Lemon Essential Oil

(Citrus limon)

“She breathed in the scent of lemon blossoms, inspired by how their citrus sweetness mingled with fresh ocean air. Closing her eyes, she ran the tip of her tongue over her lips, tasting a faint saltiness in the moisture laden breeze. She imagined how dark, rich chocolate filled with the brightness of a lemon filling and dusted with chunky sea salt might taste. Delicious, she decided.”

- Jan Moran, The Chocolatier


A top note with a strong aroma, lemon essential oil smell just like the fruit from which it came.
