Scent at Grand Floridian

Does anyone know what scent they use in the Grand Floridian? They should bottle it and sell it!

I had a cast member tell me that she buys the Dove bar bath soap in the pistachio scent because it smells like the Grand Floridian. I bought it, but quite honestly, I don't remember if it smells like that or not. But im going to pretend it does

I did a little research and found that they use the Enviroscent system. The scent they use is Green Clover & Aloe. I'm not sure the information is accurate, so I contacted Enviroscent to order samples of several scents. Hopefully I can verify if this information is correct and order it for my home. I would love to have my house smelling like the GF

Green clover & aloe is what issued at the Beach club. I think the GF uses a different scent.

There's a thread that was just on the first page here in the last few days about scents at the resorts and it had a link to another long thread on it. It comes up fairly often.

It doesn't say that in this thread. Did you read that elsewhere? And no, the scents at BC and AKL are definitely not the same. I'm sure I read in the past something about the AKL but I can't remember. Plus, the AKL usually smells a lot like the food at Boma and some kind of smoky smell (in a good way).

This and Green Clover & Aloe is only sold in the cartridge form, and the kit for that is something like $200.

I was actually told this information by a Disney Cast Member. She did confirm that GF used Green Clover & Aloe. They actually replace these cartridges under the tables in the entry way of each of the buildings. The main building has it installed in their AC ventilation system. I still want to verify before I invest in the system.

I have been told that that is the scent too...There is a poster in the GF thread WishesQueen who actually ordered the system and uses it in her home...I am sure that if you message her she would be happy to provide you with more details....

I did read it in another thread yes.


But the smell you get, when you walk into the Jambo house doors, also comes out of the vents in the hallways ...

Even up on the 5th floor, they are definitely pumping something in there ... I just need to know what !!!!

We only sell one type of AccScentHD residential unit and the fragrance cartridges that are listed on our web site. The commercial units in hotels are sold by another company and those scents are proprietary to the hotels. However, if you can tell us where you stayed or what the scent was like, we would be happy to recommend a scent that is as close as possible to what you experienced during your hotel stay. quoted from enviroscent
