Day 079 - Pinocchio

Currently Burning: Cucumber Lime Twist

This was the 2nd animated Disney movie made. I remember when I was a kid, this movie was pretty scary because of the ending. Last night's episode of Once Upon a Time prompted me watching this one. Jiminy Cricket played a pivotal role this time around. I also forgot this is where the Blue Fairy came into play.

A much more serious tone than last week's movie. This one is essentially about someone who has to figure out the difference between right and wrong. Along the way, Pinocchio makes several bad decisions that result in some terrible consequences.

It's almost as if the story has multiple short stories in it. There's the story about not pursuing material wealth (the puppeteer), not giving into vices like gambling, drinking, and smoking (Pleasure Island), and how your negative actions affect the ones you love (Monstro). Good movie, but it's probably one of the gloomiest Disney movies.

Now onto the daily review!

Cucumber Lime Twist (5): This one is really nice. The cucumber is the dominant note with just a hint of lime. It also has a slight green note that helps to mellow it out.  It's not as sweet as many of the fruits can be and I really like it. It's like a clean, fruity scent. I can definitely see myself getting this in a candle. The throw is medium.

Remember to keep those wicks trimmed!
