Pears and winter: two words you wouldn’t expect to see in the same sentence. Well, pear smells in winter are all the craze this year – and you better believe it. Yep, forget conventional rich accords of cinnamon, caramel and spices this season because this fruity note has taken over. And here’s why you’ll want to wear pear from now on…
Pears are officially trending right now
Fact: the best new scents contain notes of pear. That’s why they’re the biggest trend of the moment, don’t you know? Well, hear us out. You’ve got to try the new Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glacé (£39 for 30ml, £50 for 50ml, £70 for 100ml), which mixes pear sorbet (fit for an ice queen) with blackcurrant buds for a crisp, cool vibe. Then there’s Elie Saab Girl Of Now (£38 for 30ml, £53 for 50ml, £74 for 90ml), which really sticks around on your skin, thanks to the addictive notes of pear, roasted pistachio and orange blossom. Marc Jacobs fan? We’re currently loving Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau So Decadent (£45 for 30ml, £54 for 50ml, £90 for 100ml) for its fruity-floral combo of Nashi (Asian) pear, raspberry gloss, magnolia and jasmine. Mmmmm! Trust us, these are the iconic fragrances of the future.
They smell divine
So let us tell you about the smell of pears. You know that juicy, sweet taste when you take a bite? That’s the smell you get in pear perfumes. They’re most commonly top notes, which give off a waft of freshness and iciness – the first things you smell. And although they may not last as long as the heart and base notes, they’ll continue giving hints of sweet pear throughout the day, which will keep you feeling energised. Just what you need in a winter scent.
Pears smell great in other seasons too
While you’re probably planning on indulging in pear scents from now on, we’ve got something to confess. They’re fresh and fun for other seasons as well – not just winter (soz to burst your bubble). But it’s good news! After all, if would be rude not to wear these gorgeous scents in the summer months. If you want something subtle and charming for next spring and summer, try Marc Jacobs Splash Pear (£38 for 100ml). It will be pretty hard not to love the notes of pear, lemon zest and soft amber. Bliss.
