In a rare occasion – I decided to melt a scent very much in season – Midsummer’s Night. This Yankee Candle classic has been described as the scent of a teenage boyfriend.
My brother is obsessed with this scent. He actually used to spritz his clothes with the room spray of Midsummer’s Night, almost wearing it as a cologne. Anyway, I thought it was about time I gave this one a melt and review.
The Scent: Very masculine, with notes of cologne, patchouli, and sage. To me, it’s just okay. I may be in the dissenting opinion here, but Midsummer’s Night reminds me of a generic cologne that may have gone slightly stale, or had been sitting too long in direct sunlight. It’s not bad! Just not a mind-blowing scent. B-
The Throw: Very good; I’d say a solid medium throw. It completely filled up my living room for many hours. No complaints, it definitely has a throw that you will be able to smell and enjoy. B+
Midsummer’s Night is, and I think will be, a part of Yankee Candle’s regular line-up for a while. It is one of the classic Yankee Candle scents that have helped define this company. I may not be a huge fan, but I can certainly appreciate it!
