I am a perfume junkie. I whole-heartedly admit this, and I really don’t have any shame about it, either.
The collection of perfume samples I have is slightly excessive, but hey, it gives me plenty of selection to choose from, depending on the particular scent I’m hoping to douse myself in on any given occasion.
Because I already have such a ridiculous amount of perfume, I try very hard to resist the temptation to purchase more. My willpower has done me well thus far, although it crumbled a wee bit when I saw that Kat Von D’s Saint Eau de Parfum was ridiculously discounted on Sephora’s website for Cyber Monday.
I first came across this heavenly perfume when I received a free sample of it with a past Sephora order. I was in love from the get-go, so when I saw I was able to purchase a one-ounce bottle for a mere $30, you can bet it flew into my cart faster than seal shit slides off a sheet of ice.
I’d like to credit our farm mechanic for that one-liner. It gets me every time.
Anyways, this perfume falls into the floral categorization, with its main notes being jasmine, musk and vanilla. Saint, as described on Sephora’s website, is “soft, alluring, and dreamy … (it) sweetens a bouquet of jasmine and tiaré flower with notes of mandarin, caramel, and sparkling Mirabelle plum. Vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk build to the romance of the perfume, imparting a warmth that reminds Kat of falling in love for the very first time. Saint is a poetic exploration of the lesser-known, softer side of Kat Von D.”
I realize how difficult it is to communicate a smell through text, but trust me when this is some of the lightest, warmest perfume I’ve ever come across. I absolutely love it, and if you’re into floral perfumes, there’s a good chance you will, too.
