Ah yes, we had a similar experience. A week later our dog got sprayed by a skunk coming out of hibernation. Not at all like the skunk smell in the Figment ride, not at all.... Spring in the Great White North, it's not all robins & daffodils!

OP, not nuts! smell is a very powerful sense and can and does remind us so much of memories. Especially fond ones! I LOVE when something reminds me of Disney! We call when the house is REALLY clean, w/ bleach "Disney clean".

I always smell the fish & chips as soon as I get to the top of the hill. Where is the apple fritter smell coming from at the IG?

On another thread, someone mentioned a smoked salt that Trader Joe's sells and how it smells exactly like the burning of Rome scene on Spaceship Earth!

I was shopping at sephora the other day and realized the new MARC by MARC JACOBS perfume Oh Lola! smells a lot like the be our guest scene in philharmagic. Needless to say I put some on and was smelling my wrist the rest of the day!

I love that smell too! We stayed at a Westin hotel in Atlanta that smelled the same, and they had the lotion and hair products in the hotel room. Love!

Thanks for the reminder, I'll be visiting the site before I go to bed.

Yes, I have smelled that one. My daughter agrees.

Smells and scents are very powerful. Many things remind me of Disney. The Dancing Waters scent from Bath and Body Works always reminded me of Soarin also.

DH and I test drove a used Prius last week that smelled just like what we call "Monorail Funk"! We both said we love WDW, but don't want anything to do with a car that smells like Monorail

There was a post on a thread several years ago, where someone said that the monorail smells like an old Bandaid!

Boy, that looks weird when I re-read what I just typed.

Also Kerri -- don't know if this is what your usher wears or not, but I bought it specifically because it smells just like the Soarin' ocean scene(luckily DH likes it too) ~ next time you're in a dept store, get a sample of D & G Light Blue cologne

I really love this thread -- will have to keep checking back to see what other suggestions there are

I was thinking the same thing! I bought the spray air freshener version of Glade Christmas Pine in December The first time I sprayed it, I hollered to my son to come quick and smell it because it smelled just like the pine forests in Soarin'! He agreed.

Actually, many scents I smell take me right back to Disney via my nose. I love how scents and aromas tie us to very special places and times in our lives.

I'll have to write down the names of those Yankee Candles, I love Yankees and I would love my whole room to smell like a Disney World smell! I love when you smell something that brings back Disney memories, I had a bath using a Lush product months ago and everyone in my house thought it smelled like Disney World, wish I could remember the name of the product!

Seriously, I went out and bought the Old Spice Komodo body wash thanks to this thread. My family thinks I have gone bonkers because after every shower I announce "I smell like Norway!"
And I *need* some of the Citrus Mist, Soarin' is my favorite ride and I love that orange grove smell!

I am excited to see others have posted more scents I need to be on the lookout for

Another Yankee Candle/Soarin' connection...

I bought a Yankee Candle called "Winter Wonderland" because it smells like Soarin' when the skiers are going down the mountainside. You know, piney, wintery, crisp. When I brought it home, the kids both smelled it and yelled, "SOARIN'!!!"

I wanted to see if my unobservant husband would notice, so I put it on the counter and lit it. 20 minutes later DH comes out of the kitchen and asks why it smells like Soarin' in there.

LOVE that candle!

My husband thinks I'm crazy but I am always sniffing Disney smells...wherever we go!

The entrance to the Dillard's store in North Little Rock smells just like the Contemporary Hotel and I always stop and close my eyes and I have even had people behind me run into me because I just stopped to smell

There's nothing like a Disney smell to make you immediately wish you were there.....

Aww I was going to order Winter Wonderland at Xmas but didn't after I read it had pine in it, I'm not keen on pine but would burn it just so I could smell Soaring! lol.

I felt a bit pathetic the other night because I got the True Rose Yankee Candle, it smells exactly like red roses so I watched Beauty And The Beast as I burned it because of their enchanted rose
