MidSummer's Night® Scented Candle
Perfect balance of earthy and masculine.
I may be a little biased, as a young girl my first love introduced my to this scent by way of an anniversary gift. For 12 years I have always had this candle on hand. It is a very strong scent, but to me has always been comforting and not overpowering. The best part about this candle is you can burn it for an hour and the smell will waft through the air for the rest of the day.
I have found that the tart does not smell as strongly as the candle, though in a pinch it does add fragrance to the air.

This gave me a headache
Honestly I was so excited to get this in the mail after I read all the reviews that were completely raving about it. I was so disappointed , this scent literally is way to strong. It's way too musky like a heavy cologne smell. Not only that, the scent lingers for a long time. If you're looking for a over powering scent then good for you, but I honestly was hoping for a nice re-freshening not over the top cologne smell. This is too much!

Strong, pleasant scent!
I almost always have a candle burning, even when it's just me and the dogs at home. I usually burn floral, fruity candles but wanted to give this scent a try to mix things up.
It's a very strong, heavy scent with masculine, cologne-like notes (not sure It makes me think of a "mid-summer night," though. Within about 30 minutes of lighting it, the entire front of my house (living room, dining room, and kitchen in an open-ish floor plan) is heavily scented. I tried burning it in the master bedroom/bathroom, and it was too strong for my taste in that more closed off area. So far, the scent seems to be consistent and strong, and I haven't noticed any problems with not throwing enough scent.
While I like it and it's an enjoyable scent, it's definitely not a candle for everyone. If you prefer more masculine, cologne-like scents or needed a break from your norm, I'd encourage you to try it out!

My large jar candle and why I love it !!!!!
What's better then a Yankee Midsummernight candle? A large jar of the same scent. Just love the Yankee candles and have been hooked on this scent.
This item was packed like a glove and arrived right on time. What else could one ask for?
I also bought several candles one size down and four air sprays. I give these gifts to myself several times a year. I deserve it!!!!!

My all-time favorite: MidSummer's Night
I have been purchasing and burning MidSummer's Night for 18 years. Love, love, love it. It is my all-time favorite Yankee Candle. Please do not EVER discontinue this candle. I read in another review that the customer burns this scent for Halloween. I never thought of that. I love the idea because of the dark color of the wax, and because of the full moon on the front. I live in a three-level townhouse. I lit two large jars on my coffee table on the main level. The scent filled my living room. The scent wafted up the stairs, and I could smell it in my third floor hallway. AMAZING! MidSummer's Night will always be #1 in my book!

One of Yankee's top fragrances!
This fragrance is wonderful. It's a fragrance that is so appealing to the nose for both men and woman. It's a beautiful scent that lingers throughout the home. I always have a large jar, tarts, the fragrance oil and tumblers. It makes a home smell clean, and you can smell the musk in it which makes it an excellent candle to pair with many fragrances. I usually pair it with Sage and Citrus but it also pairs nicely believe it or not with Vanilla Lime. Simply put this fragrance is excellent by itself and one large jar will scent many rooms which I love for my home which is open with large rooms. This is a quality candle that you will get your monies worth on. Although I use the coupons and buy 1 get 1 free, this candle is probably the only one I would pay full price for. Combining this scent with a few drops of oil in a warmer creates an atmosphere of sensual feelings and anyone that enters your home will compliment the scent. I love fragrances that you can smell without having to put your nose in the jar and Yankee did an excellent job with this scent and I hope they keep this one around forever. I see a lot of men buying this scent but it is one that I will always have in my collection for years to come and a scent that can be used year round. Excellent job Yankee for a wonderful fragrance that is in my top 5 favorites. Great job and thanks for keeping this around!!! I recommend this scent to anyone who likes fresh scents to at least try it in a votive or small tumbler and you will fall in love! My family loves this scent and we always have the whole line of Midsummers Night in stock!

After 3 hours barely smell, if at all
Bought it loving the smell in the jar, just got around to burning it and after 3 hours me nor the family really smell it. I mean there maybe a slight sent in the air but you really have to think and look for it to know its there. I would not say this is a strong smell.
