KVD Saint Fragrance Review

by - Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Hi, dolls!

In today's blog post, I wanted to review another of my favourite fragrances - the Saint fragrance by KVD. It was first released in 2009 with a different bottle design, however in 2017, KVD decided to bring it back as it was their most requested product of all time. KVD fragrance line consists of two perfumes - Saint and Sinner. Out of the two, Saint was the one I fell in love with but if you won't find this scent to suit you, definitely check out the other one! Fragrances released in 2017 have the same original scents as they had back in 2009 but are in redesigned bottles. If you're interested to find out more, let's get right into the review!


Firstly, as mentioned already, the scent remained the same but the bottle of this fragrance has changed in the 2017 version. I wanted to show you guys the bottle comparison - I definitely prefer the newer version!



When this fragrance first launched in 2017, its price was way higher - the 30ml bottle retailed for £45/$45! However, once Kat von D announced that she is leaving the company and the whole rebranding of KVD started to take place, their fragrances started to reduce in price - £16/$18 for 30ml. This fragrance comes in 10ml, 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, however now it's on sale and can only be found in 30ml from KVD website or 50ml as a part of gift set in the UK Debenhams. I think that this sadly means once it sells out, they won't bring it back and that would be such a shame as I truly love this scent - I'm currently on my 3rd bottle and I think I should get one more in case this doesn't come back.

As all KVD products, this fragrance is Vegan and Cruelty-Free!

Top Notes: Mirabelle, Clary Sage
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Almond Blossom
Base Notes: Vanilla, Peach, Musk

At first, you can smell the sweet, fruity scent of Mirabelle and Peach. As it settles throughout the day, it gets sweeter and you start to smell the Jasmine and Almond Blossom and its bottom note of Musk as it becomes more apparent. It's super sweet but in a very good way - it's definitely the right amount of notes mixed together to create this unique scent. I saw a lot of people comparing this fragrance to what a Spring morning would smell like and I can totally agree with it!

The bottle and packaging is also super creative and very fitting with its name. I love the idea of a white bottle for Saint and black for Sinner. Overall, I really just like the idea behind this fragrance collection. 

This fragrance definitely lasts long and you don't need to spray it more than once or twice during the day - it is eau de Parfum after all. Eau de Parfum has the highest concentration of fragrance - generally having a fragrance concentration of between 15% and 20%. On average, eau de Parfum should last from four to five hours, if not more. This differs from Eau de Toilette which has a fragrance concentration of between 5% and 15%. Eau de Toilette is definitely one of the most popular types of fragrance and it is definitely cheaper than eau de Parfum (in case some of you were wondering why initially KVD fragrance price was high) but it will normally only last for two to three hours.


Final Thoughts
I am truly obsessed with this scent - I think this is the only fragrance I have repurchased so much in my life. I am currently starting my 3rd bottle and thinking of buying 4th, just in case this goes out of stock forever. I do switch in between this fragrance and my other favourites such as Kayali etc. but this scent is super unique to me, very sweet and floral but also fruity and not candy sweet which I find sometimes to be too strong. I always say it's impossible to recommend a scent if you haven't tried it out but this is definitely one you should check out in your closest store - I recommended it to two of my friends and they both got it and loved it. 

Have you tried the Saint or the Sinner fragrance by KVD? Which is your favourite?

  1. The newer bottle is far better than the original bottle, but how come the price was lowered just because Kat Von D left the company?

    1. As the rebranding took place, they changed their name & packaging, so I’m guessing some of the stuff will be going out of stock as Kat’s no longer involved 😊

  2. Wow. Isn't this amazing? You see this company of perfume just growing and changing their styles to make it better for their clients. And it is working. How cool is that?! I love the second design better too. I have never tried this one though.

    I am happy that you are satisfied with the new version. Usually, when companies change their product, its often the first version that is preferred. But in this case, it is different. It is just nice to read your review. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. The scent sounds amazing and something I would enjoy too. I love the style of the new bottle, I'd even put it on display once it was empty.

  5. It's great when you find one that you really love, isn't it? The newer bottle definitely has a more sleek design and it's great that it has come down in price so much - why is perfume so expensive? Great review.
