Rheney Williams, a former attorney from Charleston, SC, sells a line of unofficial Disneyland-scented candles themed after the rides, food, and environments of the park.
Some of the candles have pretty obvious scent profiles: the Soarin' candle smells like the scents that are pumped through the ride itself ("Redwood Trees, Cedar Trees, Salty Ocean Mist, Orange Blossoms"). Others are more thematic (the Haunted Mansion candle smells of "Musty Carpets, Dusty Furnishings, Graveyard Grasses and Flowers (very subtle jasmine florals)." The food ones are the most obvious: churros, Dole Whip and Main Street Bakery speak for themselves.
The candles are made from US-grown soybeans and are $16 plus shipping, and there's a $45 three-pack, with discounts for higher-volume orders.
Alas, none seem designed to capture the unique smell of air-conditioner must, industrial machine lubricant and "Pixie Dust" (absorbent powder used to soak up vomit) -- these being the true parfum du theme park.

It may not rank up there with climate change or personal debt, but confess…isn’t it the worst when you’re trying to put a food container in the fridge, but can’t find the right lid to fit? Hey, not everything has to be a global crisis to be irritating to the core. But still…it’s even more […]
Assembling a truly autonomous smart home is getting closer and closer to reality every day. But for every new smart bulb, thermostat, home security system and appliance we set loose within our walls, there are still probably a half dozen “dumb” items we’d still love to replace. But whether they’re too costly or too big […]
With so many manufacturers out there these days, it’s tough to know who to trust in the ultra-competitive wireless earbuds market. If you’ve never heard of LinearFlux, you may soon.
