An unusual fragrance that evokes the scent of a London pub in 1933; apple pie, pear syllabub, gin, beer, roll-ups, wooden floor and bread rolls.
Up the Apples & Pears has its own accompanying detective story, set in a 1930s London pub run by elferly sisters, Cissy and Dottie Shuttleworth.
Max Heusler (the one Maxed Out is named after) did a review of his top more daring fragrances and named this number 1!
Earlier this month Now Smell This put us first in the top ten fall fragrances:
"North Americans are generally suspicious of any slang phrase that starts with "up", but "apples and pears" is just Cockney for "stairs". We're talking about a second floor pub, because besides the eponymous fruits, this scent includes hops, gin, whiskey, bread and woody accords. It is indeed a boozy fragrance, but it's crisper than those notes might indicate, with a yeasty, close-wearing dry down, perfect for those of you with My Little Pony's Applejack as your spirit animal.2 Sweet and lightly musky, Montale Wild Pears is a similar pleasure for our season of mist and mellow fruitfulness."
It has notes of gin, cider, apple pies, wooden floors, whisky, roll ups and bread buns.
