After the Kittredge's sold Yankee, the quality went downhill dramatically. What were once the highest quality candles known for phenomenal fragrance and throw were no longer.
I spent a considerable amount of time searching for a comparable company, but it wasn't until I found Kringle Candles and learned that the Kittredge family were back in the candle business did my search end. These candles are everything Yankee once was and more. Mike's son has not only brought back what we once knew, but also added his own sophisticated touch and given us some updated and modern scents that I prefer to the standard "foody" type scents.
As far as Midnight, it's an exact match for Midsummer's Night, my all time favorite candle and one I have had to live without for so long. Midnight fills the room with that familiar scent which was always the signature scent of my home, guests always compliment it and noticed it long after the candle has been extinguished. I'm so happy to have this scent again as it is a sophisticated scent reminding one of a clean, handsome man who brushed softly against you at midnight and left the scent of his expensive cologne behind.
The candle itself burns clean with an 8/10 throw which is perfect for this scent. The jar and label are both beautiful and speak to the quality of the candle overall.
You cannot go wrong with Midnight, you will love it and so will everyone else who walks into your home.
