Very natural fruit cocktail. Amazing scent, goes on for about an hour or two, then becomes quite close to the skin. Great for summer hot days, would not recommend for cold weather. Just beautiful otherwise. Great for something like a summer garden party or something like that. Can be worn by men for sure. Especially just for fun to enjoy.

I was hesitant to try it as I'm not a fan of pear in fragrances, but I still sprayed it on a card... And whoa! What a beautiful fruity-citrusy opening! Mmmm, I love grapefruit, it can make anything beautiful to me. The drydown feels a bit bland-ish and muddled on my skin though, but it might be because the weather is not yet warm.
Thumbs up for a really lovely and joyful opening, but I will have to retry this later for better evaluation.

A very neutral floral with some white fruit feeling. Fresh but with a candy-like sweetness.

Well, this a pear-dominated opening all right - extremely synthetic - with a less annoyingly laboratory version of bergamot in tow. The drydown bring on a more bearable lemon note with the best of the bunch so far, osmanthus.

A good measure of a bland white musk with an overly anaemic cedar impression dominate the base.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and ten hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent goes from overly candied laboratory syntheticness to dullness. 1.75/5.

I'm always wary of pear perfumes because pear essence has the shortest life of any perfume ingredient, fading from skin within less than a minute. Some perfumes do a good job faking it with apple and chemicals (for the anyone interested, the best pear perfume is Annick Goutal's Petite Cherie, with Jo Malone's English Pear and Fresia coming in a respectable second). Pera Granita, unfortunately, isn't that good.

So what does it smell like? Well, it's lemony pear for about a minute, quickly replaced by hairspray aldehydes, rubber doll musk, and that currant that smells like cat pee. The molten plastic pee smell is eventually joined by some sort of tropical fruit that also sort of smells like vomit, so the end result is urine and bile mixed with toxic plastic with a touch of fruit punch. Eventually, some decent white flowers come in and it ends up as a generic fruity floral which isn't terrible, but certainly isn't worth sitting through plastic, pee, and vomit to get to. Honestly, it's just a mess, designed to smell good for a minute on a paper strip at the Duty Free store at the airport. Avoid.
