Neutral Reviews of English Pear & Freesia by Jo Malone

There's nothing dreadful about this scent, but I'm slightly disappointed.
If a scent is going to claim to have pear in it, then I expect a prominent pear note.
Here, that note is very subdued, the vaguest wisp of gritty pear skin rather than ripe fruit.
Indeed, the entire scent is very subtle -- slightly sweet florals, hints of green.
Refreshing, but I'm not sure it is a stand-alone scent.
It doesn't have a lot going on, at least on my skin.
