Spotlight: Maple & Whisky Candles

We’ve written about Maple & Whisky candles before in previous articles but now we’re taking a more in-depth look at this awesome Etsy seller and the candles they have for sale in their store.

The majority of their candles are Disney inspired, but you’ll also find other fragrances available such as Butterbeer. M&W also offer seasonal candles for Halloween & Christmas with lots of exciting scents to choose from. They’ve thought of everything and have some amazing scents in their shop; you’re certain to be able to find something to satisfy your Disney cravings! Light a M&W candle, sit back, close your eyes and dream of Disney! These candles will transport you right back to the parks.

Main Street Scents

The moment you step foot into the Magic Kingdom Park and hit Main Street, you lay eyes on the castle! That’s when the bakeries, ice cream shops, restaurants and refreshments stands kick out some glorious smells that you will never forget. Re-create these magical Main Street moments with some of these fantastic smells:

► Main Street Bakery
► Main Street Popcorn
► Mickey Waffle
► Plaza Ice Cream
► Pineapple Swirl
► Pumpkin Spice Latte
► Rice Krispie Treat
► Writer’s Stop

Available as 8oz or 12oz jars, wax melts, reed diffusers or room sprays, M&W also offer  Main Street bundles:

 

Ride Scents

You know how you queue in Pirates of the Caribbean and there’s a slightly musty, damp, humid smell that somehow manages to be awesome too?  M&W have captured that fragrance in their candle and it smells amazing, just like the real thing! In their ride collection, the scents of soarin’ can be found, the Ghoulish Patchouli fragrance of Haunted Mansion is there too, among a bunch of other great creations. They all smell absolutely spot on. Close your eyes and you’ll be instantly transported to a doom buggy, boat or ride car! Choose from:

► Over Africa, Over California, Over India, Over Fiji
► Philarmagic
► Spaceship Earth
► Tomb Sweet Tomb
► Dead Men Tell No Tales

Resort Scents

Some of our favourite candles are from the Resort collection. Paul & I are resort hoppers – we like to visit all the hotel gift shops and restaurants and we like to use the lounges and quiet areas to sit in some comfortable air conditioning before hitting the parks again. Of course, we’ve also stayed at a lot of the Disney Resort hotels and there is nothing better than being able to light a candle that fills your home with the fragrance of your favourite resort.  Look out for the special bundles again! Choose from:

► Animation Hall
► Beach Club
► Campfire Sing-a-long
► Castle Club
► Contemporary
► Jambo House
► Polynesian
► The Grand
► The Lodge
