English Pear and Freesia is the fragrance equivalent of a glass of bubbly champagne. It is warm and has a sparkly quality about it. I've never encountered a fragrance like it. It's one I reach for most in the Fall and Winter, but it's fresh enough to wear year-round. Compared to other Jo Malone colognes, it's one of the longest lasting of the line. If you want a sophisticated fruity floral, I highly recommend this fragrance.
For Jo Malone fans, English Pear and Freesia blends beautifully with Wild Bluebell and Peony & Blush Suede.
Goes on a lovely light fresh summer scent, but dries down with that inimitable note I think of in Jo Malones, which is woody and dry and makes it woodier than I like. Nice overall, though, and a very pleasant scent for hotter weather
I don't know how to describe perfume. I know either I like it or I don't. I am in the mood for something light, fresh, floral maybe, and at Jo Malone, they had pear and freesia. I don't smell the pear, I did like the freshness, but on my skin, it died down to an almost "woody" smell. In the end, I am keeping the light floral scent of bluebell which is a bit too light perhaps, but it's what I'm feeling for right now.
Quite a nondescript scent for me, I smell something vaguely floral, a faint rose note and something clean smelling. I cannot smell pear no matter how much I try. The patchouli hit me after about 10 minutes, strong and unusual in this scent. This isn't interesting enough for me to buy this although I will use up my large sample size.
From Fragrantica: 'Pear is combined with quince which introduces honey sweetness and is surrounded with white freesia and wild climbing rose. A base of green, fresh and sour nuances of rhubarb along with warm and subtle aromas of patchouli, amber and white musk.'
I saved for ages to buy this perfume and it was so so worth it.
In terms of the packaging, Jo Malone is super thorough - the bottle is gorgeous and simplistic and they do the whole nine with boxes and bags and bows.
When it comes to scent, this perfume is heavenly - and by far the nicest I've ever bought. I was really torn between this one and the orange blossom one but this won out.
It has a clean, fresh, floral scent from the pear and the freesia but it also has some (very faint) woodier undertones to give it depth. I would definitely recommend this more as a day scent.
Lastly, it has really good lasting power - lasting me throughout the whole day.
Overall, Jo Malone is a bit pricey but if you're looking to splurge, this product is definitely worth it.
Lasts a long time but it is not my type of scent. It smells like air freshened or sweet bug spray to me. I think it may bee too much floral. Jo Malone's other perfumes suit my tastes better.
Like spring/summer in a bottle! It's fresh and long lasting and one of my new Jo Malone staples!
Love it :)
This nice for rose, but I really wanted pear. I also tried their rose sample and this smells identical to me upon dry down.
Maybe I'm being overdramatice here, but this is simply the most wonderful thing I've ever smelled in my life.
Love this...bery fresh and ieal for spring summer..i have bought a second one. not many perfumes smell lie this and its great that not everyone smless the same as is with chanel co co madomissell..
I like to mix my fragrance and this does great with other jo malone frgrance..only issue it does not have a grea tlsting power... you would have to spray lots on to get the best lasting power..
