Pear and Thyme Citronella Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Juicy pear and aromatic thyme elevate this citronella fragrance oil to a sophisticated scent you’ll reach for all year long. Top notes of crisp pear and tart lemon are enhanced by a dash of black pepper. The heart of this orchard is centered around verdant citronella, currant, and savory thyme and sage. A base of dark musk and cedar round out this savory and sweet scent.

Capture the warmth of sun-kissed pears and thyme in candles, wax melts, and tarts. It also performs well in candles, soap, and lotions. Perhaps best of all, this scent is approved for use in reed diffusers!

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils including citronella, anise, black pepper, and thyme.

For a full line-up of citronellas with a twist, we recommend trying Pear and Thyme Citronella and Ginger and Saffron Citronella. Looking for the scent that inspired the line? Try out our classic Citronella fragrance oil.

Pleasant and effective ...

I love this scent - and it's been super effective for our family. I just got a sample to try out because I'm not usually a big fan of citronella, but we need something if we are going to enjoy our buggy back patio - and this has been it all summer long!!! We are kind of picky about scents - and this is a family favorite. It's light, fruity and refreshing. I can tell there's citronella in it, but that's not the top note.

This is a big nope for me, smells like vomit. I see others saying the HT is great, but I can't imagine the CT will entice customers to buy. Very disappointed.

Straight out of the bottle I wasn’t super in love with it, it wasn’t bad by any means but I was a little skeptical. I decided not to judge a fragrance straight from the bottle and made a batch of cold process soap with it and once it was blended with the oils the juicy pear really shines through and it smells so good!! It blended well with the stick blender and didn’t accelerate or separate at all. This fragrance is going to be apart of my fall line and I can’t wait to have it available for my customers!

Not for me

OOB & when I poured this, to me, smelled like amoxicillin ... a cloying scent. Almost gag-me scent. I almost didn't even light it... BUT burning it was a different story, it was pleasant. My son smelled pineapple, (maybe for him that's the pear, but at the same time I could tell what he meant by pineappple), whereas I smelled a more herby candle. If you can get over the very sweet smell that this scent emits when you pour it, it might be a hit.

Love it

Great HT. Did a 4 oz test candle. Was supposed at how the scent filled a large room. Scent is refreshing. Hints of citronella without smelling like bug spray. Not too pear heavy. A really nice blend.

Killer HT

Wasn't so sure about this one out of the bottle - polarizing for sure. I mixed this number with White Tea in Soyblend wax and holy moly the HT was outstanding. I love it! 1617 Evermore Bowl, 3 wicks, one week cure. HT permiated my entire apartment.

Not a fan

Sounds more interesting than what it really is. A little muddled IMHO.

Give it a try

I blended this with Rosemary Sage and this smells amazing in coconut soy wax. Earthy with a little sweetness. I love it!
