Yankee Candle Midnight Jasmine
Advantages: The fragrance lasts well, soft, light and refreshing scent, really good quality
Disadvantages: None that I have found
I have spoken in the past about my love of Yankee Candles. I was first introduced to them by my Sister in Law, I clearly remember walking into her house and smelling the Baby Powder scent and from that moment on I was hooked. The scent is really quite a soft scent and this is the types that I have brought in the past, the Clean Cotton, The Soft towels etc. and the most recent candle that I have is the Midnight Jasmine Candle. I always have a good smell of the fragrance of the candle before buying and this one smelt really good so I was excited to take it home and burn it!
The Yankee Candles can be brought from places like Garden centres, local retails (This is where I get mine from as they offer a Yankee loyalty card!) You can also purchase the candles online from places like Amazon or YankeeDoodle.co.uk. The price will vary slightly dependant on where you get the candle from. The small jar will cost you around the £7.50 mark and then the larger will cost about £16.00 and then the really large house warmer jar will normally retail at about £21.00. I appreciate that the candles can be expensive compared to other scented ones but for me there is a better quality about the Yankee that others just don't possess.
The candle that I brought was the middle sized house warmer. It comes with a label wrapped around it, it has the Yankee name at the top and the name at the bottom and there is a picture of a couple of Jasmine flowers on the centre against a lilac background. On the reverse of this label is a little bit of information on the candle and some warnings when you are using the candle, most being quite obvious.
The candle is a white colour and comes with a glass lid. The scent is described by Yankee as being a mixture of Honeysuckle, Mandarin Blossom, and Water Jasmine. I have often had a lot of perfume that has the fragrance of Jasmine built into it and it has always been a favourite of mine so I was really pleased when the Jasmine fragrance in the candle started to come through. It is always important to let a Yankee burn so that the top is all liquid and this is when you really start to notice the scent coming through.
We tend to burn our candle in the living room and this is a large space as it is open plan with my dining room but I had all the windows closed and as soon as I opened the door to go back into the room after popping into the kitchen I soon noticed the smell even more. This is definitely light and not so sweet that it becomes overpowering, as I mentioned I am not so keen on heavy fragrances but this Jasmine is really light and soothing. It lingered in the air and I could son smell it in the hallway as well so this candle is certainly very powerful.
I think that you really do get what you pay for with the range of Yankee fragrances as the quality for me is that it burns and really does create an amazing fragrance. There is something about the Jasmine scent that fills the room with a fresh and soft fragrance that makes it feel quite natural and not at all like some sort of air freshener.
In summary, I have nothing but praise for this fragrance. It really is soft and refreshing, in the summer it makes the room refreshed and as we have had a couple of colder days now, it makes the room feel all cosy as well! The candle will last a long time as you do get a lot of burning hours from it.
5 out of 5 from me on this one.
Thank you for reading.
Summary: A great scent by Yankee
