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.

Come on guys what are y’all doing?

Listen. When you make a great fragrance, and the people who buy the fragrance fall in love with how it smells. Never change the formula. I think it’s a shame when you tamper with perfection. Last year I bought this fragrance and was so wild by it .I add it to my collection. Prior to reading other reviews by the time I got my hands on it it was change before that so I heard now 2023. I just recently bought a new batch of this fragrance oil ,and man you guys changed the formula again!!!. which makes it very weak in the fragrance . It does not smell the same like it did before!!. That pear and brandy fragrance that I’m used to was more intoxicating than what I have re-bought. Stop messing with perfection. it’s frustrating…. All in all. I guess I’ll live with it.

Great candle scent!

This was a surprisingly hot seller. I sold out of it & had to buy more for a customer that wanted 5 more candles if it! Big seller for me!

Smells Medicinal

I wanted to like this scent, but straight away it smelled medicinal out of the bottle. Like cough syrup. I went ahead and made some candles with it (partly because I didn't want to waste the scent, but also to test a wood wick in the new candle tins I bought) and again, it's hot throw is still medicinal. I'm going to see if any friends like the scent, in which case I'll give them the other 2 candles made, but I'm not going to purchase again.

Brandied Pear FO is absolutely intoxicating! I was so surprised how wonderful this smells in my melt and pour soaps. Its not to sweet yet fruity. I will definitely be ordering a larger bottle.

Not what I expected!

I don’t really know what I expected but what I got wasn’t it…
OOB it was a little weak and just “meh” and I really didn’t expect much but once I made my candles with it (464) it really came to life. Subtle but really, really nice CT and stronger than expected HT.
And a twist….it is amazing in potpourri!!!
My wax melts are curing but I suspect they will be amazing too! (BW-921)

Incredible Scent

LOVE this scent during the fall and holiday season. My customers love it and I sell out every year. It's in my TOP 3 all-time favorites. I also love pears, in general.
