    Pear + Olive by Slumberhouse

    This is an excellent fragrance. The pear is bright, clear, and very natural smelling. It's fairly sweet as well, but that's part of the charm. As it dries down, it blends into a smooth, coconutty-pear combination that becomes wonderfully mellow. The olive contributes to its silky texture and creates a soft, radiant sheen. At its base you are left with a trace of pear, and a soft amber-vanilla glow that rests on the skin.
    I would like to point out that while pear certainly seems to be the focus here, Pear and Olive achieves success because it is more than just a simple pear smell. It's a beautiful compostion, given depth by the other notes mentioned in the pyramid (which I can't individually identify) and its seamless transition from the opening to its more mellow, butter-soft mid and base. Projection is quite powerful for the first several hours where it then begins to settle down, finally becoming a slightly warm, slightly fresh skin scent around the 6 hour mark. Certainly a distinct fragrance, and definitely worth sniffing out.
