Disneyland-Scented Candles Will Hit You With Serious Nostalgia
It's hard not to get nostalgic for the sights and smells of Disneyland, the self-proclaimed Happiest Place on Earth. Research has shown that smell is strongly linked with memory, so a perfectly scented candle could take you back to 1313 Disneyland Drive to relive those happy memories—and Anthology Candles has a line of candles that will do just that.
Anthology Candles's Disneyland line features familiar smells like Dole Whip, Main Street Bakery, and Churros. On top of the more straightforward olfactory treats, the company offers candles with more musical smells, like "Let it Go" and "Part of Your World." Candles like "The Black Pearl" and "Haunted Mansion" evoke that dark ride feeling. Each candle is made with natural soy wax and poured into a reusable glass jar.
Anthology Candles is run by Stephen and Rheney Williams. The South Carolina-based couple are big music fans—Stephen is a professional jazz pianist and Rheney was a vocalist and musical theater actress—and started their candle business based off this passion. They later expanded into other themes like movies and books. Their Harry Potter and book lover series are particularly popular.
