Not sure what changed but I don’t like the updated version. Someone said bubble gum scent..? Kinda accurate. But we’ll see how our customer respond to it. I won’t reorder after using this 5lb jug..

We experienced a slight amount of acceleration and some ricing. This batch came to an emulsion slowly. Once we thought a light trace had formed, we lifted the stick blender and saw some ricing. We continued stick blending until the batter reached a medium trace. When all signs of ricing were gone, we poured the soap into the mold. Everything looked nice and smooth. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a partial gel and discolored to light tan. The scent was nice and strong and remained true. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to tan. Although the scent faded slightly, it was still pleasantly strong.
Don't know how this doesn't have 5 stars. The new one is even more fruity and rich. Great scent!!!
I haven't tried the original brandied pear but this one is top notch! It is one of the better pear fragrances I've tried. It's not 100% pear, which I expected given the note profile, but it is perfect for the holidays. I tested this on a blotter strip and as well in whipped soap. I'm loving it! I plan to test this in a candle this summer for a fall/winter line.
This scent is absolutely amazing!!! However....... zero hot throw!!! I’m so sad 😭😭😭 Really wanted this one to work out
Hi There! We are so sorry to hear this scent hasn't been performing as expected in your candles! While hot throw can certainly be tricky sometimes, we are always happy to help troubleshoot if you are experiencing any issues. A member of our Support Team will be reaching out to you shortly to see how we can help!
I get a boozy brandy scent, but above all, it actually smells like a banana candy smell to me! Like the fake banana flavor. I don't get any pear scent at all. It's not unpleasant, just not what I thought it would be.
Intensely fruity. I love it!
This is an elegant spicy fruit that is unique amidst the boring pear scents with other manufacturers. Candle Science should get an award for this one. However, I realize this is a matter of taste, but so far the people I've given it to have loved it.
i made my candles use 464 wax and they all said it smells like bubble gum nothing to do with pears
This scent is my favorite so far. So good and really good hot throw.
Glad this one came back very similar to the original - it's one of my favorites! Thank you!
I was scared this one wouldn't come back! It's spectacular!
