    I also enjoy pear, but 99.9% of the pear FOs are too perfumey! I’d like to see a close replication of a ripe bosc pear… seriously, have you smelled a fresh sliced one? I couldn’t believe how delicious and complex it was!

    Do tell….about this .1% pear FO…. :) 

    (you found it…or are still searching?)

    It wasn’t a pure pear. It was actually “Brandied Pear” from Candlescience, but they discontinued it, and they’re in the process of reformulating it into a “clean” scent… and I’m not pleased. :#
    I’m still on the lookout for a pure, non-perfumey pear. I’m looking at a few supplers I haven’t purchased from yet, so we’ll see what happens.
    Perhaps I can salvage the perfumey pears I have by adding clove and other spices. Maybe some tart fruit notes will enliven it. Or dilute it in enough florals. Yeah, salvaging perfumey FOs are tricky!
