What did my candle smell like?
Oh my goodness, the moment I saw this fragrance in Madison Valley’s scent list, I knew I wanted to review it. I love pear fragrances… add some warm spice and I’m in heaven and this version sounded mouthwatering.
Here is the description for Spicy Pears:
Close your eyes as you inhale this scent and you’ll imagine a fresh, juicy pear. Our Spicy Pear candles’ fragrances include a hint of leafy greens dusted with sugared cinnamon spices, too.
Sweet pears dusted with cinnamon sugar spices? Sign me up!! Smelling the wax for the first time… I smelled sweet pear all the way with subtle spice notes which to me was perfect. Sometimes the spice element can dominate a fragrance too much which can drown out all the other components…. with this fragrance, the cinnamon was just a subtle background and to my nose, it was perfect!! Time to light my candle.
Since this candle was pretty large and had 3 wicks, I decided to light it up in my master bedroom which is a pretty large room. Once lit, it didn’t take long for the candle to reach a full melt pool and the aroma…. mouthwatering just as I hoped it would be!! It smelled like the sweetest pear and I’m not talking a tart and candy like pear I’m used to burning. Oh no! This fragrance smelled like the real deal. A sweet and juicy pear with the spice notes extremely subtle. To me, this fragrance was all pear. I was mesmerized.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. Not super strong but gave a nice and steady medium scent throw. It was decent.
My candle burned perfect. Zero issues. Clean and even burn from start to finish. I did have to vigilant with keeping all three wicks trimmed before each lighting but that’s pretty normal. I can’t stress enough how important wick trimming is or the flames came become out of control.
Closing to my review:
So far, this is my favorite fragrance from Madison Valley and I have one to to go. Spicy Pears was AMAZING!! And honestly, it was the most authentic pear fragrance I’ve tried to date and I didn’t know it till I tried this candle. So I think it’s safe to say, any future pear fragrances I try from this point on will be compared to this one.
