Hello, and welcome in to the latest edition of Yankee Candle Reviews here on SoBros Network. I will be your host – the Fragrance Aficionado of SoBros Network, also the EIC, Stoney Keeley. My passion for Yankee Candle began in 2006, when I strolled into the location in Providence Marketplace in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. I picked up a jar of Autumn Woods, and found it captured the essence of the season perfectly. I’ve been hooked in this…well, you could even call it ‘romantic…’ relationship with Yankee Candle ever since. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the wonderful summer fragrance, Midsummer’s Night.

Midsummer’s Night has been a veritable institution at Yankee Candle for as far back as I can remember, and for good reason. It’s different from most of the fragrances, specifically the summer ones – there’s no fruity or floral nature to this one. It is straight ahead musk. In fact, if they made this shit in cologne form, I’d wear it every day. After shave? Smear that shit all over my chest.

I don’t know how they do it, but they just keep doing it. They really raised the bar with this one and I don’t know where on Earth they traveled to that smells like this in the middle of the night, but it ain’t Gladeville, Tennessee. I’ll tell you that much. Wherever it is, it smells like a place I’d like to spend the night dancing nude in the light of the pale moon. According to Yankee Candle, Midsummer’s Night is, “an intoxicating and masculine blend of musk, patchouli, sage and mahogany cologne.” Yeah – I get the musk, the patchouli, the sage, and the mahogany – it all comes through in a very woodsy, masculine scent. That’s what makes this one so different from the other fragrances, and honestly, I think that being different is what has made this candle timeless.

Recommended burning: Late at night, in the summer time, with an open window – rays of moonlight shining through as you take a puff of your pipe and read a piece of fine literature.
