The pear is one of the world’s most ancient foods. Stretching back to antiquity, dried pear slices were found in ancient cave dwellings in Switzerland and have been cultivated in Asia for about 3,000 years. In fact, pears appear in Chinese writings beginning at least 1,200 years ago. In China, the pear is a symbol of immortality because the trees survive for such a long time. In Europe, the pear was first mentioned in literature in Homer’s “The Odyssey” as one of the gifts of the gods.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
