My experience with this candle was completely different from the other review.
It IS a very ‘soft’ scent, which is not a demerit. You don’t always want a candle to smell every room in the house up. SOMETIMES I want that, but often I want a candle for a particular room, say the bedroom. I often have a separate candle for relaxing the bedroom, and since it’s going to be lavender-y or sandalwood-y or something similar, I don’t want it everywhere.
Dreamy Summer Nights is PERFECT for that. It fills the whole bedroom but doesn’t bleed out over the whole house. It IS a relaxing ‘bedtime’ sort of scent. The website notes are vanilla bean, amber, cedarwood, heliotrope, vanilla orchid and vanilla sugar.
I don’t get any cedarwood but the amber, vanilla and heliotrope are very clear.
If you like your candle to punch you in the face with heavy sillage, this ain’t that. But if you want something for your bedroom or yoga/meditation room, or a bathroom where you need a little something but it’s a small bathroom so you don’t want to get choked out, this candle is perfect.
I actually have lost quite a bit of my sense of smell (I’ve made myself sick several times eating or drinking things a normal person would be able to tell smelled spoiled) and so for ME to say I can walk into a room and still clearly smell this candle despite it being ‘softer’ is telling you something.
I have about six backup large jars of this because I’m terrified they’ll discontinue it because of its softness (everyone wants face-punch candles nowadays).
If you get a Yankee you truly cannot smell, take it back and exchange it. They allow it, even if it’s used, because a) they’re cool and b) it IS possible for a batch to be ‘off’. Just switch it out for a different batch (they’re coded; a Yankee employee can do it for you or show you how).
Love this candle, will one hundred percent buy it again. It’s SUCH a relaxing bedroom scent.

Fresh Cut Roses Not As Good As TRUE ROSEFresh cut roses smell nice, however True Rose which Yankee Candle decided to remove and replace it with Fresh Cut Roses just does not smell better! I've emailed Yankee Candle, however it's clear that they truly do not hear their customers, Even though they "approved" my review - they did not post it as they choose the reviews they wish to post, which is fine! But True Rose has a definite stronger, richer true rose scent; fresh cut roses just DOES NOT! The Fresh cut roses smells nice, it's just not a staple strong smell like True Rose. One thing I can tell you - that Henri Bendel has a Rose Candle to die for! The scent will make your house smell lovely.

I tried this in a wax tart this year. Given that even patchouli haters have liked this scent, I hoped I could replicate that result. Unfortunately, I just couldn't like it. It wasn't even fully melted before I turned it off because it smelled just like soap to me. A strong, Ivory soap type scent. Started giving me a headache. My rating is two lippies because I love the black color and the throw was excellent despite not being completely melted. This was a huge bust for me otherwise. At least I know now that I don't like this.

I didn't buy this- my sister did. I found it halfway burned and with bad tunneling. I managed to fix the worst of the tunneling with something called the "aluminum trick," though there is still a good bit of leftover wax on the top of the candle.Anyway. Onto the actual candle. Its scent is an enigma. All I'm certain is that it's feminine. Sometimes I get sweet, other times I get straight up floral. It doesn't remind me of bubblegum, or the ocean really despite the pretty jar art. Another reviewer described it as tutti frutti but it doesn't even remind me of that (although I can see where they were going at). Describing it as a girly fresh scent may be the best way to describe it.Once I fixed the tunneling, it's been burning evenly, and I can smell it almost immediately after lighting it. I have a smaller candle and it fills most of my large living room and the entry to my kitchen with fragrance. It's good at masking other scents. Sometimes I like the smell and other times I hate it. Florals tend to give me a headache, so when it's particularly floral to me I feel tempted to blow it out early. I'm almost done with the candle but doubt I'll purchase a jar myself.

You know the "bad boy" Byronic hero we're all irrationally attracted to, at least according to cliche? This is what he smells like once he's aged and matured, and has been around the block a few times. While he's still very bad indeed, he's now capable of occasionally transferring his overly intense focus onto things like pleasing his partner, showering regularly, and leaving puppies, kittens, and even civilians out of his nefarious revenge plots. This is that mother******, in a cute little jar with a moon and some stars on it.In seriousness, Midsummer's Night is a cologne-like scent that won't remind you of either your grandfather or the teen next door who believes Axe commercials to be gospel. It isn't too heavy on the orris or patchouli, nor is it sharp and synthetic. It's warm and dark and sexy, with a base hint of burning firewood so smooth and whisper-light that you want to keep re-sniffing to make sure you're not imagining it.Yankee Candles don't have the best throw, but I'm perfectly happy to have this one burning right next to me all night long! I am pansexual, but while this candle is open, I may feel more hetero...
