    Holy cow! I sampled this today and I have never smelled anything like this. Yes, I do get an olive note which sounds weird, but it seems to crate an oily creaminess which blends with a sweetness like I have never experienced before. Somewhat bizarre and "airy" and light yet with a solid base that keeps coming back in wafts. Like all I have sampled from Slumberhouse, a unique scent, less heavy than many of their others. I may just have to get a bottle of this one. Nothing like it out there.

    Oh yeah-Pear & Olive is extremely wearable art. The perfumer was in a happy place for this one. I bought the .5 oz blind and reviewed this over the weekend and gave a big thumbs UP.

    Well, I had to order a sample now. Looking forward to trying this one.

    Oh wow, this is a good one. Thumbs up. The pear is so juicy and delish, best pear I have sniffed. When I opened the package it was in, I noticed a very nice, almost tropical & creamy, semi-coconutty aroma and I was like whoa, is that from sample??! It's juicy, soft, dewy, a little oily, creamy, smooth and sweet, very nice! The opening is super yum! It's the feeling like I just sliced a very ripened juicy pear. Then I get a creamy, oily, concentrated olive and sweet herbal notes. Thanks guys for talking me into getting this sample. I wish that initial, juicy pear note would last for hours!

    Edit: The creamy dry down doesn't do it for me, that would be my only thing I don't like about it, just cause I don't care for certain, somewhat lingering, sweet creaminess in my fumes, so just personal taste there. I like a little cream but usually not a cream that sticks around for a while. It's not something my nose likes. Actually, the dry down kind of reminds me of Burberry Brit Holiday Edition, whatever that was? It was a limited edition. Or a Burberry Brit EDT, one of those, pretty sure. So, I really don't like that aspect, but I do love the pear, the herbal and the olive...

    Where is this available for sale I've checked the Slumberhouse website and found nothing regarding the sale of this frag

    Never mind, I was able to secure the last 0.5oz on Amazon via Perfume1. I hope this is a good blind buy :-/ It's pretty expensive on a per oz basis.

    I could do with a lot less sweet in the drydown...
