The verbena candle is lovely and it burns cleanly, though I haven't tried the new glass jar packaging, only the old-style round aluminium tin.
If it uses the same base as the Verbena perfume, it has notes of sparkly lemony verbena on a base of geranium and lemon tree.
It's a delightfully fragrant candle, and I'll repurchase, but minus one lippie for L'Occitane decreasing the burn time from 20 hours (in the tin) to 17 hours (in the jar) while bumping up the price from AU$25 to AU$35. :(

This is my first L'Occitane candle and I love it...very refreshing lemon verbena-green scent, very bright. It's a generous size 5.2oz, burns very well and evenly, and like everyone has said, has an excellent throw. The room smells fresh for hours afterwards. While it's pricey for me, I'll consider these a nice self-indulgent splurge and try some other scents (I've already sniffed and loved the blackberry and orange ones in the store). The other fantastic thing is the packaging--aluminum tins with lids, minimizing smoke when you blow it out, and dust when not burning.

I love L'occitane products and have always been satisfied with them. But this verbana candle was a bit of a disappointment. Very expensive and not too fragrant when lit, it seemed a bit of a waste of money. ALso, the packing was sleek and efficient but not very attractive. The verbana shower gel and spray are wonderful, I would add

This reminds me of BlissLabs Lemon Peel and Lemon-Sage line. Just the right combo of sweet and sour. Light, lemony smell is uplifting and refreshing and the natural-looking brown and earthy-green paper label picturing a single verbena leaf is in keeping with the sense of clean minimalism. But - the only fussy thing about this French line that deters from its simplicity is the unnecessary cash spent to achieve it. Twenty dollars for a small tin with approximately 30 hrs of burning time? Not so effortlessly minimalist.
