I love lemons.
The color, the fragrance, the flavor.
Lemons make me think of summer, shrimp on the grill with lemon, lemon italian ice, bright sunny days!
Watching my son lick a lemon, priceless.
Here are a couple of my other favorite lemons...
Bath and Body Lemon Wallflowerscome in a variety of styles. They plug into the wall and the lemon scent is fresh and clean. I love that the scent lasts for several weeks and some of the plug ins are night lights. There are several scents to choose from, but my favorite is lemon.
Saponificio Artigianale Fiorentino
is a natural 100 % vegetable based soap from Italy. It comes in several scents but my favorite is lemon. I love how the scent lingers in the bathroom after your shower.
