As Anjou pears are not as sweet as other varieties of pears (such as Barletts), this is a fresh pear scent with a touch of spice that seems most appropriate to enjoy in Autumn. This is a not a gourmand scent, per se, in my opinion. Fruit and spice fans may enjoy this unique fragrance blend. The throw is moderate and the burn is clean. Kringle soy candles are superior in burn quality.
