Have I got a Dud?
I ordered this candle based on all of the reviews and am really disappointed maybe I got a dud ~ I had it in my bedroom which is quite a small room and burned it while sleeping initially there was a throw but after 3 hours nothing. I blew the candle out, let it sit and re lit and went to sleep I woke up about 4 hours later and there was NO scent at all whether cold or burning. I am truly disappointed as having to order on line (we have no Yankee stores in BC) I rely on reviews and this candle gets a 0 not to mention with shipping/handling then taxed at the border this dud has now cost me approx $35 Canadian. It seems to me the only one to date that has had a strong throw is the Baby Powder but I do like floral scents for my bedroom and home office and have yet to find one other than Fresh Bamboo and Fresh Eucalyptus which I see is no longer in your list of scents. I do not recommend this candle and am really getting disappointed in having all of these candles that have no or a very light throw gathering dust as they are of no use to me

The Absolute BEST!
I have been purchasing this scent for 5 years now, and just recently learned it was being discontinued? A store clerk informed my friend recently who told me (knowing I would need to stock up), which is the reason I felt compelled to write a review. This is the absolute best scented candle / air freshener EVER! I truly hope this is not the end of Midnight Jasmine. It literally is my signature scent (as it was even part of my bridesmaids' gift lol). Here's hoping that was a false rumor!

Perfect floral, at least for me
I cannot tolerate too much scent of any type, whether perfume, candles, air fresheners, etc. I bought this candle on sale at a local store after not being knocked out when removing the lid to test the strength. It did not disappoint. The floral is very subtle, not at all overwhelming and is a nice change from the "fresh" and "grass" type scents we usually burn. Although Storm Watch is my favorite, this one is up there in the top 5.

Midnight Jasmine - favorite floral
This is my favorite floral scent by YC and one of my favorites all around. It is 100% spot on jasmine and has excellent throw. Perfect!

Love, Love, Midnight Jasmine
I am not a floral lover, but, it seems the white colored florals such as Midnight Jasmine, White Gardenia, etc. are wonderful, fragrant good throws and excellent pooling candles. I love the wonderful fragrance notes in this scent that flow thru open floor plans and are so noticeable to all those who enter the home. This scent smells so pretty with all the terrific notes in it and it pairs excellent with many citrus/fresh scents. I have burned this in the whole line, large jars, sprays, fragrance oil which is wonderful! and of course the tarts. One tart lasts a long time and can be smelled in rooms that are large with high ceilings. It's not just a floral scent but a fresh scent at the same time and is very relaxing, pleasing to the nose, calm scent. I like to burn this in the early evening along with the fragrance oil and it lingers in all the rooms even after blowing out. This is one of the very best floral scents I've come across and I wish Yankee would keep this around. I like to smell my candles and always go for the stronger scents but this is not headache strong, it's got a GREAT throw which is important to me and very well worth the price. Glad I stocked up on this and fortunately during this semi annual clearance, I found 6 bottles of the fragrance oil for half price! I wish Yankee would keep them on the shelf all the time so I would stock up now before it's gone! This scent is a great gift giving scent to those who love floral/fresh scents that will not give you a headache but will be noticeable while burning in your home. All I can say is the musk and other notes in it blend so well and I always get compliments on it. Great job on this scent Yankee. Please keep it in stock! If your not sure about it, grab the tart and you will fall in love as I did. It's feminine yet husband loves it as well and it really makes the house smell so clean during these spring/summer months!

Great scent, but did you change something?
I've loved this scent for years and keep on buying them, but my last big jar that I bought last week has almost no scent to it. The jar itself smelled great in the store and its a bright white, but the scent is so weak that I forgot that I had it lit three evenings.
Wonderfully strong jasmine fragrance normally fills my house with a candle on the mantlepiece. But this one jar... for some odd reason.

fills a room but not sickening sweet
I had never tried this scent because it always smelled so strong and sweet on cold sniff. I decided to try it since lately I have been finding that the throw on many are not as strong as they used to be. I am glad I found a recently made Yankee candle that actually has a great throw while burning. This fills a bedroom nicely without being cloyingly sweet or sickening. It is a nice floral that perhaps has a bit of Neroli (orange blossom) that I can detect? The white wax also looks stunningly beautiful while burning and gives off a beautiful warm glow. A beautifully feminine floral with the dainty scent of jasmine petals that will scent a room. Very relaxing and refreshing at the same time.
