The scent of fruit that makes arguably the most refreshing summer drink is also a big hit in body care. But if you've ever smelled lemon oil by itself, it smells about as tart as it tastes without sugar. Confection type scents are popular in body care these days, and much like lemonade, companies usually mix sweeter scents to make them more palatable.
