Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night is one of Yankee’s bestsellers and it’s in the core line. While I see why it’s so popular it’s absolutely not a fragrance I’d burn in my home because it’s just not appealing to me.
The reason that it’s such a good seller is that it’s one of the few core Yankee Candle scents that smell distinctly masculine. It smells like a men’s aftershave. It actually reminds me a lot of the Irish Spring soap and it has the aquatic and musk notes similar to the Cool Water cologne. I read somewhere it’s supposed to be similar to the Drakkar fragrance but I’ve never smelled that so I can say.

I’ve bought a few Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night scented candles to give as gifts throughout the years and one of my friends has it burning every time he has people over so I’ve smelled and seen it plenty and I can do a proper review on it.
The official notes in Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night are: musk, patchouli, sage and mahogany cologne.
I definitely get the musk, there’s a lot of patchouli and the woodiness of mahogany underlined with the herbiness of sage. It’s a very summer night scent for me.
My friend burns large jars of Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night and has had to use the foil trick a couple of times to get rid of the tunneling but he says he’s not careful about letting the candle pool out before blowing it out so that might have been the reason.
The scent throw on this is quite strong, it fills up a room well, I say it’s a high 8.
I hope you enjoyed my Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night scented candle review and I’ll talk to you soon!
