Just love the fragrance. It is refreshing. It makes me feel like I am living in a flower garden.

This fragrance is great any time of year
This happens to be my favorite yankee candle of all. The scent is clean and reminds me of a breezy day. It fills up a room mildly so its not over-powering.

Great fragrance for those who love muskier scents!
As a huge lover of Yankee Candles, this one is a winner! This fragrance reminded me of Evening Air mixed with Mountain Lodge. Great fragrance to easily fill your entire home with! I bought this online, have never seen this one in my local store, I will definitely buy again.

I couldn't help but TO purchase this fragrance - just to see why it got such negative reviews. I am DELIGHTED with the scent of this candle! It has a masculine, herbal <clove, geranium, basil>, woodsy musk <cedarwood, musk> fragrance that is so popular these days. There's NO FLORAL scent nor does it state so in its description!!
I prefer strongly fragranced candles as my house is so large and need a strong scent throw so an entire room can carry the scent. Although this candle is not as strong as Midsummers Night - it is very similar, and is also a fragrance I can pair up with a 2nd E.G, or even a Midsummers Night for a stronger scent throw.
This fragrance may not be suited for everyone. If you lke a Floral fragrance - definitely don't but this one! This candle is calming, imo, and I would absolutely love for YC to keep this one year round and to add more products in the line!

Wonderful scent... Perfect for the Bedroom
I love this scent! The musk and cedarwood makes for a relaxing frangrance. I burn this candle whenever I am in bed to calm me. It has an amazing throw; though It burns upstairs, it reaches the downstairs living room. A must have!

Honestly my favorite candle.
I first bought this candle because I thought the gnome on the front was cute and the smell was nice. As I burned it in my home, it quickly became the single most favorite candle in all of my collection. It is one of the few I keep out year round and I pick it up at every single opportunity.
I was surprised to see it on sale again, it has been discontinued for a while and I had a stockpile of five that I was doing my nest not to barrel through! I would also find some on eBay and grab one there when I saw it.
I would love to see this come back. It smells comforting and pleasant and fills my house with a presence that is not overbearing.

Not even in my top 20 . . . But not awful, either. Just average.
ENCHANTED GARDEN is not nearly as enchanting as I expected. It's not even very garden-y, for that matter. Despite supposedly having floral notes, the masculine notes like musk and clove overpower all. It's EVENING AIR in a weak floral setting . . . And I find it inferior.
The name EVENING AIR makes sense for that candle, while ENCHANTED GARDEN does not make sense for this one. Maybe MIDNIGHT AIR would inspire more appropriate expectations.
I don't *hate* it. I've burned it halfway down over the last year or so. It's got a nice strong throw, and I like 'em strong. But I don't really truly care for the scent. It's like I'm smelling a botched batch of EVENING AIR and that distracts me from really enjoying it for itself.
So I don't dislike it, but rather I find myself always reaching past it when I go to my candle closet to pick out the candle of the day (or hour). There are so many better candles.
HOWEVER I do find it to be really well suited to burning in my library. Something about it fits, I guess the masculinity goes well with wood, leather, and books. I have burned ENCHANTED GARDEN in the library as part of "party decoration".
And I've spent a few evenings reading with it as my accompaniment. It pairs rather well with Sherlock Holmes.
So, while I wouldn't *not* recommend it (slight difference) I don't even rank it in my personal Top 20 Yankee Candles. It's a generally average candle.
