    Default Dior - J'Adore. Pear-based fragrances for men

    I recently sniffed this fragrance in my local perfume shop. Guess what? I'm blown away...
    The opening, the juicy pear opening! Fantastic, so beautifully blended with a sweet/fresh/clean vibe going on.

    I usually don't care about what sex the fragrance is marketed to, as long as it doesn't smell overly feminine. But in this case it kind of does smell a bit too feminine for me to fully enjoy it. Now, I need all your help!

    I'm looking for a bright, sweet and juicy pear based fragrance that doesn't smell too feminine. Please, don't suggest me a fragrance if the prominent note to your nose isn't pear! Only pear dominating scents here!

    I will check both out. But I have to say, after reading some reviews online, I don' think these is what I'm looking for. The pear note doesn't last in either of them. The Montale one turns info the signature rose and musk drydown while the Dior one heads over to the woody/spicy side of things. C'mon people, need more help!

    Slumberhouse Pear+Olive is great. It's a different take on pear. It's very unisex, I highly recommend it.

    Petite Chérie by Goutal, girly though. Biggest pear in a masculine oriented frag has to be Cerruti Image.

    I didn't spray it on my skin, I just sprayed it on a paper strip in the store and took a few whiffs and moved on to next fragrance. So, I wonder how long the pear note lasts and how the fragrance develops on the skin. Can you tell me?

    No idea, I also have only sprayed it on strips, smell it, take a mental picture while enjoying it (sooooo goood) and move on. The pear note was definitely there but in such a good idea, it instantly became one of my faves. I think some of the female members on the side (on the female section of the forum will be way more knowledgeable)

    By Killian Liaisons dangereuses.......you have to try it:-) , when i first smelled it i was sure this is pear:-) , many say peach, plum,....and i disagree, it may be some aromatic apple ?

    I read in the Guide Luca calls it rose version of J Adore.....it smells fresh and edible! It last only like 4 hours but intensive smell.....

    It smells feminine to me, but can be unisex because it smells like freshness and something to eat:-)
