Kat Von D knows how to deliver when it comes to great makeup and I always get excited about what she’s going to release next. One of her newest releases was for her Saint and Sinner Eau de Parfum fragrances. Influenster offered the opportunity to try the fragrances out complimentary and how could I really resist that?
Saint and Sinner were actually released a while ago back in 2009 and now they’re back and better than ever. Meet Saint Eau de Parfum ($88 for 5oml / $115 for 100ml / Available now at Sephora), a soft, dreamy and classic floral fragrance that includes top notes of muscat sage and mirabelle plum, medium notes of jasmine, almond flower and lily of the valley and base notes of vanilla, white cedar, peach and musk. It’s influenced by Kat Von D’s softer side and reminds her of what falling in love for the first time feels like.
Where Saint evokes love and romanticism, Sinner Eau de Parfum ($88 for 50ml / $115 for 100ml / Available now at Sephora) is all about edgy confidence. Sinner offers top notes of mandarin, orange blossom and mirabelle plum, middle notes of jasmine, white florals and cinnamon, and base notes of vetiver, patchouli, wood, vanilla and musk. Sinner shares the same floral notes as Saint but with a bolder, spicier flavour.
My Glittery Thoughts:
So am I a Saint or a Sinner? I’m usually more of a fan of spicier scents but Saint takes the cake for me. It’s got a beautiful mix of florals and musky vanilla whereas with Sinner, the patchouli, vetiver and white florals are too strong for my liking. You can’t judge a fragrance by the first sniff because once you spray it on your body, it mixes with your body chemistry and transitions into something else. That’s how I’ve been able to fall for fragrances I wouldn’t normally fall for, however I can’t get Sinner to work for me. If you’re not sure which one you will like best, spray each of them on at different times and wait for them to settle into the skin and make your decision. Saint won me over as soon as I sprayed it into the air and love its warm, romantic aroma on my skin. It is very light so the scent isn’t very powerful, so you might enjoy it more in the fall/winter when you’re not sweating and losing scents on your skin easily. The small bottles are cute although I wish they came with a spray nozzle because it’s a little tricky to dab it on my skin without it spilling everywhere. The full-size bottles are gorgeous, so if you like fancy bottles to display, you won’t be disappointed with Saint and Sinner.
