The Grand

(5 customer reviews)


There’s nothing in the world quite like wandering into The Grand Floridan. The soaring lobby, the fresh cut flowers, the music wafting through the air from the orchestra or the grand piano…whether you’re headed to your room or Enchanted Rose or any of its wonderful restaurants, it’s hard not to stop for a moment and just take it all in. And when you can’t be here, The Grand will transport you. It’s bright and lively and still grounded and complex – chrysanthemum petals and freshly cut green leaves emerging from an earthy winter sleep.

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.

    This latest Disney inspired scent will bring you back to the relaxing scent of the Grand Floridian lobby – a refreshing combination of greenery and freshly cut chrysanthemums. Close your eyes and you can picture yourself sitting in the beautiful lobby while listening to the music being played in the background – you may even shed a tear – another hit from Core Memory Candles!

    I’ve been fortunate to stay at the Grand several times and this scent was surprising in the best way possible. Flowery yet not cloying, the subtle and gentle scent helped me through some rough days in quarantine in New York City. The love that Lisa has for her candles shines through every scent. I can’t recommend her products enough!

    A new favorite! My daughter actually did a happy dance when we opened this. “How does she do it?” If you had asked me what The Grand Floridian smelled like I would not have been able to tell you but apparently my nose knew! I’m constantly in awe of how she is able to recreate these scents. The Grand is such a subtle scent but in it I can smell the flowers from around the lobby, the fresh, clean smell of bath bombs from the Basin on the floor above, and the smell of fresh garden-y goodness floating in from outside. This one gets all the gold stars!

    Breathing this in and closing my eyes, I am back at the Grand Floridian. A light piano playing and this scent burning and all is right in the world. A new addition to the Core Memory Candles family and I keep falling in love with each and every scent. When I light this and sink into my couch, I feel like I am in the Grand Floridian lobby sitting on the couch and watching the magic and happiness around me. I highly recommend adding this scent to your collection. Another win in my book!

    I got married at The Grand Floridian and, thanks to Covid, it’s the first year since that I haven’t been able to go back. I got this candle as a Christmas gift and the second I smelled it, it reminded me of my wedding resort. It’s a really wonderful, floral scent that takes me right back to Disney even when I can’t be there myself. Thank you for making this candle!! It’s a dream!
