Considering the price point and brand name, "Polaire" is a good value, impressive little perfume. For me, it was a blind buy based on Yardley's own website description of it as a floral chypre. My perfume wardrobe is not large but it is heavily dominated by the fruity chypre group.
It's a very shy, soft and powdery scent, which is why I tend to layer it with my wedding day perfume, Sarah Jessica Parker's "Lovely". I agree with the notes above but the scent doesn't last very long on my skin; however, for the short time it is with me, it makes me feel happy and reminds me of being in my backyard rose garden, which, coincidently, is near to my pear tree. It was a bargain buy at Boots for £9.99 (50mL).
