Wild Pears fragrance notes

Reviews of Wild Pears

Wild Pears is light-handed and pleasant. Reading the ingredient list, it had the potential to be a depressing fruit salad. Instead it has restraint and class. This fragrance seems nothing like that list - coconut, banana? Modifiers at most, they don't become notes. Pear's subtlety is the basis of this fragrance, and it's enhanced by light pineapple and tea. The picture I keep seeing is having lunch with my sister on the patio of our museum restaurant. Perfect.
It stays unobtrusive and pleasant and has the quality of discreet fruits submerged in tea, so while the fruit is front and center, they're a combination of muted and bright, like lemon becomes in tea. It subtly sweetens as it ages and this was the stage I had problems with as it skirted the edge of a sugariness. In some wearings it didn't go there, then sometimes it became slightly sugary, which unbalanced the subtle light floral and fruit sophistication that was its charm.
I can't buy a bottle because of its variability on my skin. But I still recommend trying it for hard-to-wear-fragrance venues, especially outdoor ones (read a tour of Napa Valley). There is no obtrusive powder or radiant ozone notes, so Wild Pears resonates well in air. It has the ability to be understated, low-key and charming if not taken over by the sugary component.

The name speaks for itself, and it's more about "pears" than "wild". Depressing accords of fruit renditions, quite salty and metallic, ending with a sweet-fruity drydown with a fresh, slightly ozonic feel. It's not sweetish as I expected, but still completely dull, as it does not even smell that much about pears, rather more about a "can-be-anything" generic fruity accord. Not tragic but cheap and dull.

This fragrance smells really like pears but strangely i don't see here  listed that fruity note that i catch in the air.  May be the notable smell of pears is made by a composition of many notes. Anyway, the smell i feel after the slightly medicinal, hesperidic and tart  beginning is nothing than an airy and barely ozonic cool breeze of pears, almond and banana that is due for a classy sporty man standing , clothed in white, over a sailboat docked nearby a tourist port. A synthetic airy note (really calone??) arouses the typical marine-aromatic  whiff that is here more windy than salty, rather summery and exotic. There is some almondy whiteness in the air that is produced by the chord of synthetic frappe', edible balsams and coconut (or almond, or simply vanilla ??) and that imprints hints of notable exoticism. The dry down is musky and slightly vanillic with a plain aftersmell of almondy pears that is light, cool and soaring in the summery bright ozonic air of the coast.  I don't smell floral notes while think some spices are comprised in the mix. This fragrance is a classy solution for the lovers of bright windy and airy summer scents. Pleasant though not outstanding to me.
