[NAFEX] Chinese Fragrant Pear

I just bought one fruit, not a tree. I forgot to look at the box for country of origin--my assumption was that it was actually Chinese, since that’s what the store sign said.
I bought it out of curiosity more than anything. It’s sitting on the kitchen table—But it is not fragrant, which puzzles me. The skin is very slightly waxy in feel, so I wondered if it might have been treated with something, or handled in such a way that it has no scent. Sometimes Asian names are very poetic, so maybe it isn’t supposed to be highly scented?
I know that imported mangoes are given a hot-water bath to kill potential insect pests; are other fruits subjected to similar regimes?
