Uh, well, some of the smells of Disneyland, anyway. Some odors are best left at the park, but the finer scents from the happiest place on earth are always worth a sniff. Problem is, some of those scents you just can’t find anywhere else — they still have Dole Whip locked up in just the park, right? — and some of us can’t make it out to Disneyland as often as we’d like (i.e. every day). Anthology Candles has our backs.
Sounds like they got in a bit of trouble for using the word ‘Disney’ on their candles, but make no mistake — regardless of whether or not it says Disney on the label, what’s on the inside is all about Disneyland. These aren’t licensed candles, so they’re going as whimsically-inspired for now, because I would go ahead and guess that whimsy would be one of the first thesaurus results under Disney.
The names of the candles were changed, too, but we’re not that concerned — Disney can claim ownership of those names, but our world isn’t yet so deranged that copyrights and patents are granted to smells. What was once Dole Whip has become Pineapple Whip, while Soarin’ (the California Adventure ride) has become Soaring Over. Haunted Mansion took a short jog over to Haunted Manor, while Churros remained Churros, because let no man try to claim dominion over the churro.
We haven’t gotten noses-on with these candles, so we can’t confirm that the smells measure up to park experience. But, if there’s a chance, you have to take it, right? Apparently a lot of people are taking that chance, because the Anthology Candles Etsy store briefly went down and is now back-ordered. You can get a candle for $16, but you’re going to have to wait a while to get yours — like, around two to four months.
