Okay, this is the second time I've crucified an AAA Fragrance oil for not throwing, only to light the test candle a week or so later and have it throw. What the heck?
I was so frustrated with this fragrance that I decided to light the candle to get rid of the wax and reclaim the jar for future test candles. But guess who showed up? Spiced Pear! Freaking FINALLY!
The throw is not a 10/10, but I'd say a 6/10. And the test I did with the Turkish Fig/Spiced Pear blend that gave me 0/10 for throw originally, is now throwing at a 6/10. I like this fragrance so much, I'm willing to accept a 6/10.
AAA please find a way to get this to a 10/10, because it is one of the loveliest fragrances in your line--really and truly. If you can kick up the throw, I'd give it a solid 5 stars. In the meantime, my lesson with AAA oils, and my recommendation with this particular fragrance is to let it cure for at least two weeks, but I'd say even four would be best. Also, this is a thicker oil and it tends to collect at the bottom of my test candles, so apparently the 2 minutes of stirring on this one is not enough; I will double the stirring time. I'm also going to recommend kicking up the temp at which you add the oil to the wax. I'm using 2 oz per pound of 464 soy wax.
