My name is Nicole Nichols and I grew up in southern California. Our trips to Disneyland were always packed with fun experiences and special memories. As time went by (and no matter how hard I tried), I grew up and life took me away from California. In November 2015, I visited the park again. One thing struck me more than any other visit before - the scents.
Having a candle company and feeling inspired by these new scents, I went home determined to start a new project. With a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and lots of trial and error, I was finally happy. I gave my sister a candle and simply asked, "What does this smell like to you?" She was in complete disbelief that the iconic water scent from pirates had been captured in candle form. We knew then that I was onto something.
We named this little experiment Circa 1955 because, quite simply, on July 17th 1955, Uncle Walt opened the doors to a wonderful place that inspires each of us. We launched on July 17, 2016 and today we have over 25 unique Disney inspired scents. Our list continues to grow!
A portion of the profits from Circa 1955 are donated to numerous charities including Give Kids the World, Make-a-Wish, and the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
