"Pirate Water" and other fragrances inspired by Disney resorts

We've seen Disneyland-scented candles before but now there are new contenders in the category of "Things that smell like something you'd find in a Disney resort."

While the Magic Candle Company in Kissimmee, Florida is not affiliated with Disney in any official way, they have made an entire line of candles, wax melts, and spray-on room fragrances that smell like something you'd find in a Disney park.

I think the funniest one is this "Pirate Water" which is scented like the "musty, damp smell" of a familiar "dark water ride" (ie. the Bromine-filled waters of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride).

Take a whiff down memory lane with their other (completely unofficial and unsanctioned) scents like: Pinocchio's Village (a "powerful aroma of pistachio nuts, almond, honey, heliotrope, and rich, creamy vanilla custard"), Churro ("cinnamon, sugar and hints of bergamot and creamy dark chocolate"), and the Pineapple Float (they write, "'Dole' out a smile every time you smell our Pineapple Float fragrance").

There's also something called Walt's Office which is the "warm and spicy aroma of cured pipe tobacco."

Prices are $7.95 for wax melts, $18.95 for the room sprays, and between $15.95 and $28.95 for the candles.

Walt Disney reviews work-in-progress "Pirates of the Caribbean"

Walt Disney shows off a ride in production, "Pirates of the Caribbean" to Miss Disneyland-Tencennial.

It is amazing to see my favorite ride at Disneyland at this point in its life. During my first visit, my grandmother lost her wig on the second sharp waterfall drop. My father had to fish it out. Cemented my love of that ride forever.

Sadly, Walt seems a little condescending. Read the rest

Lucky riders on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland were treated to a live Jack Sparrow animatronics performance yesterday by Johnny Depp. He made a surprise visit to the park as part of a PR stunt. It's fun to hear the passengers as they realize that the real Johnny Depp is standing right in front of them. Read the rest

Monkey from Pirates of the Caribbean bites makeup artist's ear

Actors can be difficult, even when they aren't human. Yesterday in Australia, a Capuchin monkey playing Jack the Monkey snuck up behind a 54-year-old makeup artist and bit her on the ear. She wasn't part of Pirates of the Caribbean and was working on a different movie set. The bite caused bleeding, and she was rushed to the hospital, but the injury wasn't serious.

This wasn't the first animal snafu for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Last month Johnny Depp illegally brought his two dogs, Pistol and Boo, to Australia and is now facing fines up to $250,000. Read the rest
