    Most Definitely the burning rome smell on Spaceship Earth but as far as Universal goes, the water around jaws. Whenever I walk into the jaws que I get nostalgic. Part of thinks it's because it's close to what the Saw house smelt like.

    Way to bring back an old thread, I know. Butttt....I found a picture of what is, allegedly, the scent system they use in the ET forest queue. If it's already been talked about, sorry in advance. I just know several people, including myself, were wondering how to get ahold of that awesome scent.

    Yeah, Disney and SeaWorld use those as well in many of the shops. When you think you smell candy or it smells like Christmas, you're smelling one of those.

    ET all the way, the greatest most memorable scent.....This is crazy, but at Universal even the scent in the restrooms is good. Universal has some really good stuff if even restrooms are decent.

    Before I even opened this thread, the first thing that came to my mind was the smell of ET. Once I opened this thread and saw everybody talking about ET, I couldn't believe it!! What the heck are we smelling in there that makes all of us remember it so much haha. Tbh tho, that's the only ride that truly has a smell to me other than some parts of Disaster but I still couldn't believe it when I pulled this thread up. ET was the first thing in my mind and then BOOM.. All over this thread

    Best smells are definitely ET and Jaws and everything HHN

    Worst smells are easily the area in Hogsmede near the mandrake and saloon and out front of cafe le bamba

    Yeah my ET Candle from Magic Candle Co. just came in and it isn’t too accurate. Not worth how much it cost for shippng alone.

    Yeah. I said essentially the same on the ET injury thread when I got it a week or two ago. Not enough pine....I still think the 2017 Holiday Special Pine scent from Yankee Candle was pretty close. But they didn't carry that special holiday version in 2018 unfortunately.

    We got a mixture of candle melts from the Disney home store at Disney Springs (I forget the name) and they had something very similar to the ET queue. Probably the best selection we’ve found.
