Floris van Dijck, Still life 1615-20
Slumberhouse Pear + Olive, now being discontinued, is probably the most unique of their current offerings, as the signature note pairing strikes me as downright odd. Its signature notes highlight the experience--sweetness from the pair, freshness and green aspects from the olive. I really get only a very simple experience out of this, and most of the notes I cannot detect. I'm just not sure the two main notes go together all that well.
Performance is decent but not especially strong for an extrait, certainly not comparable to Norne, Jeke, or Kiste, all of which are top performers.
Definitely an interesting try, but a bit too odd and not really one for me.
6 out of 10
Boozy sweet, at last a Slumberhouse that isn't screaming at me. I appreciate it but wouldn't say I like it. Nice dry-down.

Pear & Olive is my second fragrance from Slumberhouse and I must say it is quite unique. At first spray I get the pear with the olive. As it dries down, the pear kind of hides a bit and the olive comes out full blast. Along with sweet, woody and boozy. I get a whiff now and then and I love it. As with all parfum extraits, do not over spray. One to three should be enough.
This is definitely the scent of Slumberhouse less evocative!
This perfume is more elegant when worn by a man rather than a woman! A little '"nerd" perhaps by choice, would be the ideal scent for Clark Kent!
A fine example of modern perfumery which however leaves the more esoteric and mystical concept of the brand! Even the name differentiates it from the others, talking about two ingredients or better two effects!
It would appear that Josh was trying a new way, exploring the market and its potential.
The synthetic ingredients predominate, with a slight natural floral arrangement (chamomile?) that governs the flow of perfume while maintaining its sleek.
Good job, thought maybe for a very young target or for those looking for youth being close to andropause!
A rare bird is always rewarded, even though I would expect other whitefly as this one to understand better this new concept!
One day I will ask Josh about the idea of this fragrance!
