A sweeter scent that gave me some green apple vibes, it smells fresher and brighter than expected. I was expecting something something richer and spicier like the kind of brandied pears I'm used to, but this was also a nice FO. This is more like brandy and pear or like a pear that has been preserved in brandy than an actual brandied pear. Nonetheless, I love it and it is really amazing when blended 1:1 with a strong lilac FO.

Awesome scent. No complaints.
I was looking for that brandy smell with this and didn't get it. It's like a fake pear smell, like a kids body spray or something. It was a miss with me personally. Maybe mixed with another scent it might tone down the cloying fake pear. I give out samples in case I go nose blind while making multiple fragrances and it wasn't an asked for again scent. Forgettable.
Love this scent great hot and cold throw
Brandied pear is SO GOOD!!! Love this one. Great in 464.
Absolutely love this fragrance!! Everyone that has smelled it loves it! One of my top favorites from Candle Science.
This FO has a nice refreshing sweet pear scent and does amazing in parasoy melts! I love it!
Made this for the first time this fall at 9% in IGI 6006. It sold out so fast I'm going to try to sell it all year. It really started selling when I lit one and left it burning in the restroom at work! Nice strong fragrance that appeals to women and men alike. This one is beautiful!
LOVE!! The scent matches the name and is a ripe, fresh, festive candle!
Fantastic strong scient -- instant bestseller, love it!

I use a LOT of the scent every fall and winter, it's a big favorite in candles and wax melts.
Great Scent and mixer with Apple Maple Bourbon! One of our Best sellers
I picked this as a sample scent. My first customer sent me two video messages telling me how much she loves it. She used the word "addictive", and now when anything in her life is extraordinarily amazing, she says it's "Brandied Pear" amazing...lol. I'm not sure I ever would have thought this would have been such a huge hit, but thankfully I received that free 1oz sample with my last order, and now I know! Will be ordering more for Christmas. :)
Burning a .6oz melt of this right now and OMG! It hasn't even melted completely and I'm totally in love. This may be one of my favorites!!
This is my most selling scent! I love the pear and brandy mix! The scent is awesome!
This is a great scent, but just wasn't strong when I tested (GB 464). I think I'll try it again in my product wax (IGI 6006) to see if it does better.
I used this scent @ 12% in GB 444 (heated to 190° then allowed to cool to a 150° add temp, stirred constantly for a few min, removed from double boiler & stirred gently until wax cooled to 115° then poured) for wax melts. The scent is mouthwatering and maxed out in 444 it has a great throw. My only issue is that it feels very one note to me. It's very "dessert" sweet, so not a fresh pear but more like a candied pear. But where's the brandy? I really wanted to smell the pear (one of my all time favorite scents in anything) but I wanted to KNOW is a brandied pear and I'm not convinced. At the end of the day, it IS a great pear scent and I've ordered it a few times. I've also tried it from other suppliers in search of the brandy but end up back here. This is the closest to perfect that I've found for this scent. 5 stars for that!
This scent is pleasant but faint in soy wax. I wish there was more definition- either a stronger pear or stronger brandy scent. But as is, it was really mellow and forgettable. To be fair, a friend absolutely loved it.
One of my favorite scents from Yankee Candle was spiced pear, and I was terribly disappointed when they discontinued it. This is so much like it and perhaps even better. The cold and hot throws are both amazing. I used a full 8oz bottle with 4.5lbs of the Golden 464 wax and a quarter of a brown dye block and it all was just perfect! I HIGHLY recommend this scent. It's LUSCIOUS!
I took a chance on this because I was not sure how it was going to work in Soy Wax however it worked GREAT! It makes a great companion to my Apple Maple Bourbon.
I have not smelled Brandied Pear by itself but it is a HUGE hit when mixed equal parts with Cranberry Marmelade. I actually can't keep up with the demand for the holidays. It's awesome. The hot and cold throw when mixed together is really strong. I made a 2oz hex jar for my bathroom and you don't even need to light it. It is just the right amount of throw when walking by it. Definitely a keeper!
Not my favorite. Might be a personal preference thing. It's very sweet smelling, a little cloying. Doesn't really have true pear smell to me...more like a very generic candy, fake-ish smell. Some people have liked it, it's just not my favorite pear scent I've ever smelled.
I ordered and 8oz jar of this scent it was wonderful. I love that it's still spicy, but you can smell the notes of pear in there as well. Leaves a great cold throw in GB464, but the hot throw is minimal. I had to leave it burning for hours, and have a fan wafting it just to get a slight hint. I really wish this scent would do better in soy, but I'm hoping to give this a shot in the paraffin/soy blend. The fragrance is too good to give up on.
Love it!!!! five stars
It sells well during the holidays, but I keep it in inventory year round and even burn it in my home as well as sell it! It has a nice strong and sweet but not overpowering aroma. Highly recommended!
This is not an overwhelming smell but it's so nice and subtle. I love it's toasty smell in the fall. It will cozy up any room.
I was on the fence about this FA at first. I initially intended this to be a blend for another scent I was trying to achieve and while it doesn't really smell like pear it's definitely a crowd pleaser by itself. This FA has a very sweet and intoxicating aroma, much like a strong candy smell. Cold/Hot throw is amazing using paraffin but I'm going to call this something candy related as the pear doesn't coming screaming through. I initially thought about shelving this scent but the people have spoken so I think I'll give this one a try in my production line!
I love this one, it's so crisp, tart and warm! Makes my mouth water. I use EcoSoya CB135 and the HT was light in a candle, but I get a great throw in tarts made with PB at 1oz/lb.
Noting that this fragrance's hot throw may be lighter in soy wax, I added 1 1/2 oz to 1 pound of GB464. The cold throw was strong, and the hot throw is not overpowering but fills the room with a light sweet scent of pears. I love it!
This fragrance should definitely be rated 3 leafs! I absolutely love this fragrance! This has definitely been added to my permanent scent list!!!
Amazing scent throw hot and cold. Used this with the GW464 in shallow travel tins and the scent filled the room with a wonderful fragrance.
The Brandied is our BEST SELLER!!!! Its so clean and crisp. I just love it and so do my customers! Thanks CS
Brandied Pear is hands down a best seller & deserves a 3 leaf rating, without doubt. Bright, crisp, & not flowery pear notes with slight brandy notes. At 1st sniff OOB, I thought it was just OK & wasn't sure if it would be liked by others. I was a bit surprised when I poured my 1st batch of it, & saw this scent fly off the shelves. At anywhere from 10-12% in EcoSoya CB Advanced & also EcoSoya PB Pillar, it is clean, fruity & strong. It has extremely wide appeal; my earth & musk loving customers even bought this scent. To illustrate it's throw power, a relative of mine lost almost all sense of smell years ago, but she was able to smell this scent & fell in love with Brandied Pear. It also blends quite beautifully with a wide variety of other CS scents.
This smell is really great. Smells like fresh pears. This smell is slightly tart, which makes it less cloying that some sweet smells, which I really enjoy. Im not sure that I smell brandy in here exactly, but there is something more complex happening that straight pear that makes this a warm and interesting scent. I used this at 1.5 oz/lb in GB 464 and enjoyed it enough to buy more :)
This scent is intoxicating! I love...love...love it! I will purchase it again!
I received this scent as a sample and I love it. I purchased the Pecan Pie also. The Brandied Pear was the better of the two in my opinion.
I love this scent. I also think it deserves a 3 soy rating. I will definitely be buying more! I used it in ecosoya PB.
The scent is very smooth
This is an awesome pear scent! It only got a 2 rating for soy wax, but my hot throw was awesome. This is just the right blend...the pear scent is not so strong that it is overwelming. I think this one will be a big hit!
I could kick myself for not ordering this scent sooner. Used 1.2oz. in a paraffin blend, and the throw is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Will be ordering a much larger quantity very soon. Please Candle Science, never stop offering this fragrance!
This scent rocks. It is absolutely the best pear I've ever tried ... the scent throw is amazing, an instant room filler in my 50/50 soy blend. Great for the holidays, and all year too. I can't make Brandied Pear fast enough, it flys off the shelf. Thanks again Candle Science.
