L3 Waxy Wonders - Postre de Pera


Scent Description: Caramelized pear custard.

Weight Melted: 1.0 oz

Location of Warmer: Living room, in tealight warmer

Cold Sniff: 2/5 I'm so glad I did not sniff this before throwing it in the warmer, because I would have tossed it. There is a skunky odor in the background that is hard to ignore.

Warm Sniff: 4/5 No skunk once melted! Thank goodness! This was a pleasantly sweet custard scent with a very slight hint of pear.

Scent Strength: 1/3

Scent Throw: 3/3 This filled the entire living room.

Melting Power: 3/5 I got about 5 hours of scent from two cubes.

Repurchase: Probably not. It was nice, but nothing special enough to warrant a purchase of this specific scent. That skunky note also scared me a little. It's probably because of the age (over a year old) but I don't remember too much of how this smelled when I first got it to be certain.

  1. Sounds yummy...maybe. I've gotten so weird about caramel scents lately. But this is not a vendor I order from so I guess it does not matter.

    1. It just clicked where the skunky scent may have come from. Some caramels smell skunky to me... which is why I am very picky about them.

      I still haven't ordered from L3 since my major haul last December. I know her wax performs wonderfully for me, but I always end up passing her up for other vendors.

  2. I'm picky about caramel scents as well. If they're too sweet, I'm out. It sounds nice with pears, kind of fresh. I haven't tried L3's caramel to know if there's a weirdness to it, but skunky doesn't bode well.
    I've tried Frosted Snow Angels from the Bathing Garden, it has pears and white chocolate and something else I can't remember, verrry sweet, but nice.

    1. I'm just glad that skunk note was gone once melted. That would have turned me away from all caramels for a long time.
      I haven't tried Frosted Snow Angels, but it sounds lovely! If I order before the winter collection is shelved, I'll have to pick one up.
