The fragrance of pears has grown in popularity and is featured commonly in skin care products—especially in lotions and creams—because of its light, airy scent. Creative Nail’s Scentsations Pear & Dandelion Lotion softens and hydrates, while OPI’s Avojuice Pear Juicie contains soothing pear extract, avocado and aloe vera. Pevonia Botanica’s Ligne Sevactive–Dry Skin Line includes pear seed extract that helps to preserve the skin while hydrating, and KarenKlein Candles feature a Pear-Water Lily-Sicilian Lemon scent. Sattvic [Purity] in the New Age Health Spa Signature Teas collection is a wholesome blend of pear, blood orange, caffeinated green tea, rosehips and hibiscus.
The signature treatment at Aquanox Spa in the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, is its Aqua Therapy, which highlights a Starfruit Pear Body Lotion. Barely Pear Polish, the signature treatment at Spa Gaucin at The St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa in Dana Point, California, exfoliates the skin using a sugar and pear mix. Any one of these treatments would be enhanced by a refreshing glass of pear champagne and a pear wedge. Or, for spa packages lasting longer than three hours, offer clients a light pear salad with low-fat balsamic dressing.
Make it with pear
Have clients sip on a pear cocktail during a pear pedicure, or combine a fruity body treatment with caramelized poached pears. Whichever way you slice it, pears feature a tantalizing, tingly taste that is light, flavorful and ripe for all seasons.
