Fall of Rome

(8 customer reviews)


Before I lived in Walt Disney World, there were certain places that I would visit where I would close my eyes and breathe and try to be as present as possible. Like I wanted to take that perfect moment and put it in a jar that I could open later, when I was back home, to experience it all again. The slow progress of my vehicle through Spaceship Earth was always one of those moments that I wanted to bottle up – particularly the scene where Rome falls and the Ancient Library of Alexandria burns and we are left with nothing but glowing embers in the dark and the smell of fire.

This scent grants my wish to bottle that moment and take it home. It puts me on Spaceship Earth amid the glowing remains of that Library no matter where I am.

While I am forever grateful that certain, everyday smells can ground us in this place that we all love and call “Home,” I, of course, have no ownership of any element of Walt Disney World or the Walt Disney Company – nor does the Walt Disney Company or any of its affiliates endorse any of my products…much less my nostalgic sense of smell.

WARNINGS: Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, and other flammable materials. Keep wick centered and trimmed to ¼” to prevent smoking and soot build up on container or other items. Burn only on stable, heat-resistant surfaces for not more than 4 hours at a time. Keep out of drafts. Discard when only ½” of wax remains in bottom of container. Do not move candle while burning or if wax is hot. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Failure to follow any of these instructions could result in fire hazard, injury, or smoke damage and neither the seller nor any persons affiliated therewith shall bear any liabilities or responsibilities arising or resulting therefrom or associated therewith. Purchase or use of any items from this shop constitutes agreement to use them in accordance with these warnings.

    Incredible… it smells just like you are on Spaceship Earth. Great scent that brings back a lot of great memories. This is one of the most distinguishable smells at WDW and this is spot on!

    This is one of my favorite scents at Walt Disney World, and to be able to bring it into my home is such a treat! Thank you, Lisa, for this incredible product!

    The burning embers on Spaceship Earth is such a powerful memory provoking scent. Every time I ride the ride, when the ride gets to Rome, I am taken through a fast forward screen play of my own memories. From my first trips to Disney as a toddler, up through the last time we rode Spaceship Earth.

    Lisa is an artist. She has perfectly created, in my opinion, the most loved and known scent in all of Walt Disney World. Thank you for your talent and craft. I love having the Walt Disney World magic in my home, now more than ever.

    This is absolutely amazing. With everything being closed down I needed this. This instantly takes me to Spaceship Earth and Rome burning in ruins.

    My wife’s favorite scent from Disney is The Fall of Rome on spaceship earth. When she burns this she smiles and Thanks the Phoenicians. It’s spot on

    This candle is wonderful! The smell is spot on, and it definitely brings to mind a relaxing ride on Spaceship Earth. I worried about how I would feel about this scent in my home, but it’s the perfect strength and leaves my living room feeling cozy. I especially love this one on cool rainy days.

    Fall of Rome is one of my favorite Core Memory Candle scents. Being a huge Spaceship Earth fan I always look forward to rounding that corner to the smell of Rome burning. This candle brings that exact scent into my house. It makes me smile every time.

    This candle smells so good! The smell fills the air of any room you light it in. It brings back happier times in Epcot. Would recommend to any Disney fans.
