Default Tip to recreate that WDW lobby scent at home (Beach club/Bay Lake, etc.)

I'm one of those people who loves the smell piped in to Beach Club, Bay Lake, and some of the other DVC lobbies. (I've read speculation that it contains aloe or eucalyptus or a number of other things? I assume y'all know which one I mean...)

Imagine my delight when I entered my basement yesterday to find the same scent permeating the space! Turns out that the new laundry additive that I got smells just like it. I liked the smell in the bottle, but it didn't strike me as identical to WDW until it was in use.

If you'd like to give it a whirl, too, it's the Downy Infusions "Amber Blossom" scent.

Our front yard (near the dryer vent) also smelled like WDW this morning. So I hope the neighbors like it, too! Lol.

Will do! My W/D is in closet off my townhome open kitchen/dining/living room space so my whole area will smell like WDW. I tried buying the Beach Club candle from that company but it doesn't smell up a room at all. You have to stand over candle and take a deep sniff to smell it.

Bay lake is green clover aloe.... if you have an oil diffuser—the coop marketplace sells green clover aloe oil... definitely makes our house smell like bay lake when I’m diffusing.

Will try that downy for sure!!

Whenever I want to recreate the lobby experience I invite my neighbors and their two kids in diapers over Surprisingly, I don't do this all that often.

I like the "Trader Sam's" scent. It just takes an open bottle of the right rum.

Cheers.

I will have to try that! Love the BLT and VGF lobby smell!

For candles, I like Spireside. Magic Candle Company has a close second, but Spireside seems more spot on to me.
