    Re: One word to describe smell of POTC water :)

    I'd have to agree with "calming" regarding the feeling, and "dank" regarding the literal smell.

    I agree with many of these... it's funny how anywhere else, it would be kinda gross... it really is a musty, icky smell, but on pirates, you love it and are reminded of the ride and all the memories from it

    Re: One word to describe smell of POTC water :)

    "Musty" is my word for it. They should try and sell that scent as some kind of a car freshener thing. Every time I get that whiff in real life, I always say that it smells like Pirates.
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    I'm going to grab myself a jar of the stuff on the next trip... I shall open it once a month and take a whif while I wait for my next visit...

    Home

    (sadly not because my ACTUAL home smells like it, but because it makes me feel like I'm finally at my home away from home)....Plus due to heavy allergies and a highly underdeveloped sense of smell it's one of two scents that I can actually smell (the other being the menthol goodness of Icy Hot)

    there was a funny thread going on somewhere, someone joking about a Yankee candle "POTC", people asking where they could purchase it... every time I start towels at work I hear "Yo ho yo ho......."

    Evocative. What it evokes is subject to individual interpretation. For me, it's happy memories.

    No less evocative, in my opinion, is the Matterhorn's effluvium--that musty "old ride" smell that conjures the joy of times past. The Calico Mine Train at Knott's has a similar smell, only that it's nearly strong enough to cause hallucinations.

    I'm glad someone said it. I was going to mention this earlier in the thread but held back. ...and yet completely agree.

    Wow, okay, you got me there. I'll have to go check out that Yankee candle. Maybe I can burn one in the restroom and work and it will smell more like... Never mind.

    Re: One word to describe smell of POTC water :)

    I think there might be some confusion on what "smell" we're talking about?? There's the sewer smell in the outside part of the queue near the chowder place (because I think you walk right by the sewer line), and then there's the moldy, musty water smell inside of the building (which is the iconic smell people love).

    Gotta go with - "musty" - but in a good way, if that is possible.
