Thanks to candles, Paul Revere was able to subtly signal to fellow revolutionaries while simultaneously distracting British soldiers with the aroma of fresh-baked apple pie. Rebel against fragrance-free light sources with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of candles, soaps, and more at Lemon Grass in Coconut Creek.
In a slew of sumptuous scents, the candles at Lemon Grass bestow aromatic ambience upon hands and homes. Each bar boasts actual bits of whatever comprises its essence, such as the dried rose-infused floral Moonlight Kiss or the grain-topped honey oatmeal scrub. Young phalanges may no longer resist bath time when botanical vegan olive-oil soaps enliven laving ($6/3.5 oz. slice), and industrious hygienists may opt for a loofah soaplogg, an all-in-one sweet-smelling slab housing an exfoliating body sponge inside the bar ($6.50). Dimly lit domiciles in search of effulgence may prefer Lemon Grass's candle collection. Like their sink-dwelling counterparts, each torch touts three-dimensional tokens representative of its personal perfume, as in the 4"x3" round fresh-cut grass, a waxy ecosystem sheltering its own lawn of emerald blades and clump-chewing mole colony ($22). The shop also sells a supporting cast of statuesque taper stands, such as the regal 5-inch round Cordova Rust, which is swirled with leaf details ($16.50).
