FRUITY

Fruity, green, English candy.

The scent of pear is delightfully fruity, with a balancing green facet that softens its sweetness. Likened to “English candy,” pear is both juicy and definitively candied. Its ethereal scent is appreciated across both feminine and masculine fragrances.

Production

A member of the Rosaceae family, pears originated in south-eastern Europe, and were particularly popular among the ancient Romans and Greeks. Homer even went so far as to describe the fruit as a “gift from the Gods.” A salivating fruit for the taste buds and an irresistible olfactory experience for the nose—it’s no wonder perfumers have gotten into a tizzy trying to capture the scent. Nowadays, the pear note is synthetically recreated using the headspace technique.

The sensual freshness of ripe pear is enveloped in a bouquet of white freesias, and softened by a base of amber, patchouli and woods.

Pear tree wood is known for its solid structure, making it ideal for intricate woodwork because it can be carved without splitting or breaking. Throughout history, pear tree wood has been used to create woodwind instruments, such as clarinets, oboes and recorders.
