My name is Nicole Nichols and I grew up in southern California. Our trips to Disneyland were always packed with fun 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 and 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?" Her complete disbelief that the iconic water scent from that epic pirate-themed ride had been captured in candle form told me I was onto something.
We named this little project Circa 1955 because, quite simply, on July 17th 1955, Uncle Walt opened the doors to a wonderful place that inspires each of us.
