Smell is the most power trigger of our memories, taking you back instantly to a moment in your past like nothing else. This has always fascinated me, I even based my final year uni project and dissertation on it (managing to sneak in a cheeky reference to Soarin’! every Dissertation needs some Disney!!) so you can imagine my joy when I heard about the following…
Disney Park Air Fresheners…
Ok very random you may think, so what on earth have they based the scents on exactly? FOOD! (what else!)
Last year Steven Miller was asked to photograph particular food items for the Disney Merchandise team for use as air fresheners including a turkey leg, a Mickey Mouse premium ice cream bar, candy apple, cotton candy, popcorn and a Mickey Mouse waffle.
