MiN NEW YORK, Magic Circus

Is there such a thing as a false olfactive memory? I’ve never been to an American amusement park – and the only references I have are just from horror games (thank you, Silent Hill III, you still haunt me) and various movies, the one with Tom Hanks the most alive in my mind – but somehow I’m sure this was the scent of an amusement park in the 80’s.

Silent Hill III

It smells of a concoction of pink cotton candy, jawbreakers that sat in the hot sun, the acrid heated metal from the carousel, the pineapple half-melted slurpee. In addition, there is a caramel salty-sweet note (just like that good popcorn, the one with extra calories), over the olfactive backbone of a canopy with a woodworm-infested roof that has seen and dried up one too many rainfalls.

If it is a “magical circus”, it does not take us to the “Zoologist” path and keeps itself to the gourmand yellow brick carmel road, all pleasant and lovable but with a deeper layer. It has something bitter-vegetal-twisted that touches a lower chord, a certain kind of nostalgia inherent to a romanticized traveling circus, the wailing of slimy and barefoot kids, an acrobat anointing some old scars with medicinal herbs, the empty sad gaze of the “freaks” staring into distorted mirrors.
