Of all the listed, it was a toss up between chlorine smell from water (it just says "hey you're on a water ride in Disney!") but I ended up voting for Greenhouse smell, since Living with the Land is so relaxing.

Write in vote: Popcorn -- the rich buttery scent reminds me of watching Wishes near the popcorn cart.

Not listed, but I have to say the smell of burning on spaceship earth.

Should have included popcorn and the burning of Rome in the original poll. My bad.

I'm glad I'm not the only weirdo who likes the water smell.

I really like the scents in most of the lobbies of most of the resorts I've stayed at, so, I voted for the contemporary resort lobby smell, although, I like the scent at Grand Floridian enough that I've sought it out to use at home (no luck). But, the scent that is most evocative of Disney for me (maybe not the best scent) is the body wash/antiperspirant/body mist that I have in my cosmetic kit. I have used a similar scent for years--it's a cucumber/lime scent. Currently, it is the Dove Refresh brand, but I have used other brands, like from bath and body works. That scent just says "Florida" to me.

I love the scents of the Grand Floridian and Saratoga Springs lobbies. They are just heavenly!

You can buy these scents? Where do you get them from? Thanks for letting me know!

For me it would have to be the Poly lobby and the distinct smell of the Pirates ride.
