    I do not know the pear and olive thing yet, but rose 31 is an amazing summer scent (it is amazing in any season anyway ). Wearing it on a summer evening feels so romantic and natural. Besides, it has some very mystic, vampire-like approach, that also goes very well in summer imo.

    I owned both, and still own Rose 31. I loved Pear + Olive for a while, and then I just didn't anymore. It's a great frag for what it is, but it's just not for me. On the other hand, I love Rose 31, it's my sotd. I've only owned it for a month, but every time I wear it I love it more...and I am far from being a rose fan in general, but this is rose done right for me. I haven't worn it in the summer, but I think it's fantastic in the cold, I'm sure it will be the same in the summer.

    I'd go with the former of the two IMO.

    I really enjoyed my Rose 31 sample. Hoping to own a full bottle some day.

    They're extremely different scents with totally different characteristics. So, which do you prefer?

    For price and quality of ingredients, I'd say P+O, but for a darker, more heavy blend, I'd say Le Labo.

    I have sampled both on many occasions.

    I don't like the Slumberhouse. I think it's far more pear than it is olive ;-)

    I prefer the Le Labo. The rose is nicely done though I prefer other rose-scents.

    Rose 31.

    P+O is very unique, and very long lasting, but I found it a bit cloying after a while.

    But personally, neither is FBW.

    I would go with Rose 31. Great Scent. Samples Pear and Olive a few days ago. Not bad either.

    Rose 31 is what I would choose. Pear and olive gets annoyingly strong and cloying to me.

    I do think this is a valid concern -- it's very strong. I usually just do a half spray and that lasts me the whole day. The plus side is that you certainly get your money's worth with this one. Today's sale helps, too! With that said, it's got gorgeous, unusual materials in it (algae, cognac, zdravets etc.) Also, it turns quite coconutty due to the massoia in it, so keep that in mind too.

    I love pear + olive for a minute or two, but its just too much. So sweet and strong!

    Rose 31 is a unique, beautiful take on one of mother natures most amazing creations. I love this stuff.

    I haven't tried P&O but I do know that you need to like the house's style. The house has a particular style dominates it's perfumes.

    for swap/sale:
