I have purchased this candle every fall season since it came out. It is a fall staple in my house. The pear combined with the warmth of the spices gives a very comforting and cozy feel. I am not a fan of a lot of spice that can come across as astringent or ascerbic. The spices in this one are blended in such a way that they are comforting. Like opening up Gramma's spice cupboard. Just a nice warm potpourri of spices mixed with the freshness and fruitiness of the pear lends towards a nice blend that is very 'homey' and helps you welcome in the fall season.
