Why change a great thing??

Not sure why Candle Science is revising a great scent (with fabulous reviews to go with it). Now making it "less spice forward"?? I actually add more spice to mine, and get rave reviews! This one has been in my line since I began making candles. Disappointed.


Please Bring This Back!

I'm in need of this scent like ASAP for my store! I had no clue you discontinued it! This is one of your best! When will this make a return? Can I purchase some of the old inventory?

Hi! Unfortunately, we are currently sold out of the old version, but the good news is we are in the process of revising this fragrance oil and hope to release it sometime in April 2021!

I can't believe it!

I just logged in to purchase the Brandied Pear scent and see that the original is being discontinued and the scent is being revised. I'm really upset. This is the first scent I purchased years ago and is a staple in my business --- the absolutely best seller --- I don't understand why when a scent has great reviews and obviously is a great seller, that changes have to be made to it. There are plenty of scents that have average reviews --- those are the ones you should be working on. Very frustrated. Now to tell my customers.

Hi there! We're so sorry for the inconvenience the discontinuation of Brandied Pear has caused you. Rest assured, we are simply revising the current formula and are planning to release the revision this month! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at!

Brandied Pear

OMG I am soo disappointed that this is being revised this was an amazing fragrance I actually just logged in to purchase it and to see this is truly disappointing this was going to be a part of a special mix that took me quite sometime to conjure and I finally nailed each perfect fragrance for it which was to include this I have a smidge left from a sample but needed more. none the less please note that it was awesome!


Brandied Pear

This fragrance is the reason I started buying from candle science this scent reminded me of VS body spray Glacé! I believe if you change the formula it won’t smell the same and I’m worried. I wish I knew ahead of time so I could have bought this scent in a large bulk! I actually manufacture candles with this scent and now my customers have to wait with hopes it smells the same once it comes back in April.


One of my favorites!

I agree with others that this one should stay. The scent of pear is subtle, yet obvious, and you're reformulating the very thing that makes this unique. If it's not broken, don't fix it




Please tell me you are going to be reintroduced next week!! If this scent is permanently discontinued it will cost me big $$$ as it’s one of my Best Sellers. Did I miss it in a newsletter or some other notification?

CandleScience Reply

Hi there! Our Brandied Pear fragrance is in the process of being revised with a brighter, fresher pear scent and will be a little less spice forward. The revised fragrance is currently expected to be released in April 2021!


This scent was absolutely perfect!! I am so angry and sad that it is being changed. Whenever that happens, it's usually not for the better.


We just launched our new Spring scents last Saturday at a vendor fair. This discontinued scent was our best seller by far! We're so disappointed to see that it's being discontinued!


All 5 star Reviews, so why the revision?

This fragrance has all 5 star reviews and is a super top sellers for (I'm sure) every candle maker who uses it, yet CS is changing it. Since it is a safe scent already, The only reason I can come up with is more profit. Discouraging. Will CS continue to be the best in the business or is their legacy changing?

Sweet scent with subtle pear. Great hot and cold throws in candles


Crooked Wick Candles

I am not a fan of this candle as a stand alone. However, I mixed this with Calla Lilly and Lavender. OMG!! I actually got a great review from a lady who received this as a gift. She said she would not normally pick this candle but is now one of her top favorite scents!

Jennifer Phillips

Omg this smell is amazing for skin products

Loved this scent almost smelled like VS pear glace which was my favorite go to for over 10 years when I was younger lol



Great scent! I've of my best sellers. TH is strong & fragrant. Perfect fall/winter scent.

Mel Bond's Handmade

The best fragrance ever

So years ago Victoria secret had a number one seller fragrance spray & lotion and it was PEAR! they discontinued that fragrance and for years no one has perfected that smell! Well when I tried this scent it blew me away! I was literally crying with joy! This scent brought back some good memories lol! And actually smells exactly like the VS pear lotion I wish this scent would be lotion skin friendly because I would definitely make lotions!


I absolutely love the scent HT & CT give away as well, I’m just starting in the candle making business and I can honestly say that the pictures match the smell if you know what I mean lol. I LOVE IT

Brandied Pear

I Love this scent for fall and winter. Great C.T. and H.T. It quickly fills the house with this warm inviting fragrance that is just comforting and not overpowering. I use it in 464 soy wax.

High end elegant fragrance

This is a very balanced, beautiful scent. It is not too sweet or strong. I have a high end candle line and this fragrance is a favorite during the fall and holiday season. I have all types of customers who love it.


Sweet but Balanced

Brandied Pear, what a nostolgic smell. This smell reminds me of the Pear dum-dum lollipops, but a grown-up version dipped in brandy! I love this fragrance. I think it would be a great addition to a Fall fragrance line. It is sweet, but warm. I always find well done pear fragrances so refreshing. CS, you did a wonderful job making this fragrance really smell like pear.


The Best Pear Fragrance in the Marketplace

This fragrance throws extremely well, and it blends with so many different fragrances. It is perfect for fall and winter blends, but could lend itself to just about any project. It is a true brandied pear, and you smell the gourmand liquor note of poached pears, along with a gorgeous upscale caramel backdrop. I use this at 12% in 464 and love both the hot and cold throw.



So sweet and Peary if that’s a word !! Smells great!

Dancing Orchid Soapworks

Surprised but not disappointed!

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 Smell

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

Scarlett Lites

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.


Wonderful scent!

This FO has a nice refreshing sweet pear scent and does amazing in parasoy melts! I love it!


Very appealing!

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!

Candle Artist

LOVE!! The scent matches the name and is a ripe, fresh, festive candle!

Fantastic strong scient -- instant bestseller, love it!

Best seller for Fall/Winter

I use a LOT of the scent every fall and winter, it's a big favorite in candles and wax melts.


Good Anytime

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" 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!!


My Best Seller

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.

The Burning Mitten

Candied pear for sure!

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!


Not bad

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.


Brandied Pear will make your mouth water!

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.


Great Mixer!

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!

Ang S.

Not a huge fan

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.


Wonderful Scent

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

Love it!!!! five stars


In LOVE with this!

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!

Emerald Hill

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.


Mixed feelings but a winner in the end

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!


Best Pear Scent!

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.


Light and wonderful

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!

Lynn M

Simply Amazing

This fragrance should definitely be rated 3 leafs! I absolutely love this fragrance! This has definitely been added to my permanent scent list!!!

Spa Creations


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.


Brandied Pear Best Seller

The Brandied is our BEST SELLER!!!! Its so clean and crisp. I just love it and so do my customers! Thanks CS

Great Cold / Hot Throw & Very Wide Appeal

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 it! I will purchase it again!


Beautiful Scent!

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.


Love it

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.


NIce Smell

The scent is very smooth


Great pear scent!

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!

Pretty Pleased With Pear

Fantastic fragrance

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!

Patricia, NE Texas

Awesome Pear

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.
