Hello, kittens!
It's been a while, right? Almost a month since my last post! Don't worry, everything has been great and I am back with lots of content ready to share with all of you on the regular schedule; Tuesdays and Fridays
Today I'll be reviewing two products from one of my favorite brands, Kat Von D Beauty: The Saint and Sinner Eau De Parfum! "...discover the only fragrances that celebrate the two sides within all of us."

The packaging on these little vials is completely adorable! Kat Von D has such an eye for intricate designs and I love every detail, like the little skull in between the ornaments of the packaging. The design of the actual full-sized bottles is even more amazing! They're supposed to resemble the human heart.  As for pricing, this comes in three sizes: 10ml rollers for $22, 50ml bottle for $65 and the 100ml one for $85. Which is not bad in comparison to other brands in the market.
At first, I was slightly concerned if I could give a proper review on these, since it's so difficult to describe a smell! Everyone perceives smells so differently and what might seem pleasant for me might not be for someone else but I decided to try my best and be as descriptive as possible. Here we go!

First, let me quote Sinner's description as shown on her website: "Meet Sinner -- dark, sultry, and empowering, this addictive fragrance is inspired by Kat’s own duality. A little sweet, a little spicy, and undeniably fearless! Cinnamon spices up vanilla and white florals at the heart of the fragrance, while base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and wood form the deeper, darker nuances."

Sinner is supposed to be the muskier, stronger scent in comparison to Saint, suited for evenings or going out. Olfactory fatigue, which basically means the inability to distinguish a particular odor after a prolonged exposure to that airborne compound, made me unable to tell how lasting this scent really is. However, unlike other perfumes, I was able to tell I was wearing perfume when for example, I'd stop to smell my wrist and such. A little did go a long way.
I enjoyed this scent but it didn't impress me since I have smelled similar scents before. 
On their website, they describe Saint as: "Meet Saint – dreamy, romantic and alluring, this candied floral fragrance is inspired by Kat’s own duality. Our fearless leader is tough and tattooed on the outside, but totally sweet at heart! This gourmand perfume fuses jasmine and Tiaré flower top notes with a delicious heart of mandarin, caramel, and sparkling Mirabelle plum. Vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk build to the romance of the fragrance, imparting a warmth that reminds Kat of falling in love for the very first time."

Saint was my favorite. I originally thought I was going to like Sinner more but hey, Saint's the winner! Not because it was better than Sinner in any way, but because I found this scent to be more unique compared to other perfumes out in the market. 
Also, I am the type of person that gravitates toward vanilla scented candles. With that said, I can't really smell the vanilla in this. The floral scents probably over power it and Jasmine, which this product contains, tends to do that. It does give out a fresher vibe in comparison to Sinner.
