Fragrance: Honeysuckle Pear
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Honeysuckle Pear:
I will start this review off my saying… Honeysuckle Pear very much surprised me. If you have read any of my past reviews, then you know sweet floral fragrances and I do not get along. Not only do I not like them, they tend to give me raging headaches. So, it was with great trepidation I decided to review Honeysuckle Pear. You may be wondering why? Well, I’m a huge fan of Pure Integrity and made a pact with myself that I would eventually review every one of their scents… floral included. It not only forces me out of my comfort zone (which is a good thing when reviewing) but in many cases, I’m pleasantly surprised and proven wrong. I love it when that happens. It means my nose needs to broaden it’s horizons. ?
Here is the scent description for Honeysuckle Pear from Pure Integrity’s website:
Honeysuckle is a fresh sweet floral that almost everyone enjoys. But now that we blended it with juicy ripe pear, even your non-floral loving husband will enjoy this unique floral blend.
After reading that description, I think I’m going to agree. Actually – I do agree. First sniff… the wax smelled like sweet and juicy pears with a touch of honeysuckle. The floral was subtle and I must say… it was perfect.
Time to light my candle!
Pure Integrity candles are generally room fillers for me so it felt safe enough to light this candle in my master bedroom. Once lit, a full melt pool formed within 10 minutes and the aroma… a sweet pear with subtle hints of honeysuckle filled my bedroom, and to my nose… it smelled wonderful. This fragrance truly was a sweet and juicy pear as the predominant base with delicate hints of honeysuckle in the background. I was happy because I expected it to be the other way around.
Interestingly, I decided to put Pure Integrity’s “husband boast” to the test. I didn’t warn my husband (prior to lighting this candle) what I planned on burning. He despises floral scents much more than I do, so I wanted to gauge his reaction once the fragrance was solidly established. The candle burned for hours before he came home, and guess what? He never said a word! Not one word. That’s a good thing. It means Pure Integrity nailed this one. ?
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a really large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues other than the standard wick trimming before each lighting. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
Wow! I went into this Honeysuckle Pear review with a huge dose of skepticism and ended up loving the outcome. This was a great fragrance and one I recommend to fruity and floral lovers alike. I’m shocked I’m saying that, but it’s true. It was a perfect blend of floral with sweet pear really shining through the most. I loved it and could totally see myself giving this sent a whirl again.
Two thumbs up to Honeysuckle Pear.
Happy candle hunting!
