Scent Description - French Pear

Oui, oui, it is beautiful!

Light, feminine and deliciously French, this candle gets its classic fragrance from a celebrated pear variety named “Doyenné du Comice.” Translated as “top of the show” these pears are the best of the best, resulting in a scent that is rich, juicy and meltingly smooth.

Vessel Types Explained

We offer two versions of our Wine Bottle candles, a Cheeky domed base and a Flat base, both of which have a 50+ hour burn time. This means we can use more types of wine bottles and re-direct them from landfill to have a second life as candle.

Cheeky wine bottle candles with dome bases are easy to spot by the dome in their base called a 'punt' or 'kick-up'. These are a bit Cheeky because they don't allow the candle to burn all the way to the bottom with the wick base sitting on the dome. Cheekies will always have a few centimetres of wax left around the dome, but just remember the majority of this space is hollow underneath. These are most widely loved for their large diameter and feature a beautiful, thick green glass.

Our Mojo 'Flatties' or Flat based wine bottles are easy to spot as these vessels have a flat base with a narrower diameter than Mojo's usual wider-look 'Cheeky' domed wine bottle vessels. Flatties tend to have thinner glass but will leave little to no wax left over.

So in addition to the wick size and pour height, the characteristics of both vessel types equal out so that all the vessels have a 50+ burn time!

AMAZING

I have been treating myself to these amazing candles for a while now. There are so many I really love the fragrance of, but this by far is my favourite. The smell lingers in the house for ages after. It just adds that special touch to any night.

You're amazing, Lisa! Thanks for the endorsement! I'm very happy they burn so well for you. French pear is definitely well-loved by many customers. Keep smiling! =)

French Pear is fabulous!

Absolutely my favourite.
It smells fantastic from beginning to end.
The scent lasts and I can smell it even when it's not lit, not in an overpowering way though.
It somehow makes everything seem cosy and fresh.

Wow, thanks, Sharyn! Love to hear ths!
