I've worn Sun Saint for around three years now and I am still just as in love with the smell now as I was when I first got it. Lasts a long time and smells even better the longer I wear it. I found myself debating whether I wanted to continue purchasing after a recent price increase, but I can't let Sun Saint go! I don't think I will ever find another perfume that is as good as this one.
Full disclosure - I am one of the founders of Pinrose and made this fragrance for my wedding so I am definitely biased :) But, I wanted to tell you how much I adore this fragrance and how I wear it. Sun Saint makes me feel relaxed and serene. It's not too heavy and it's not sweet - the coconut feels dry to me - almost woody. I put it on in the morning post-shower (2 spritzes) before getting dressed. Then I'll add a spritz after I'm dressed. My days are often go-go-go and I like that this scent reminds me to take a breath and chill. The scent is not overtly feminine and it's not a "big" perfume. It has this understated, cool and confident vibe that I want to feel every day. When I want to add a little colorful energy to the mix, I layer on a spritz or two of Mystical Misfit.
This is a wonderful summer/beach fragrance that has a complexity to it that most other scents like this just never achieve. Let me tell you what it ISN'T: It's not a coconut bomb, it does not smell like suntain lotion, you will not feel like a fruity umbrella drink, and you not get tired of it after a full day's wear. The notes dance around each other throughout each hour of wear, and as is apparently very typical with Pinrose, it settles into the skin quickly and becomes more blended with one's skin chemistry. The lime balances out the coconut and the effect definitely puts you in the mind of tropical vacation but in a subtle and sophisticated way. I am rarely impressed by fragrances like this and I absolutely love this one.
This is a unique summer scent - it's not the traditional sunscreen scent however it's very easy to wear. It feels like a effortless luxury vacation scent.
Oh my god, this fragrance is summer in a bottle. Reminds me of sitting on the beach sipping Pina colada’s with salt tousled hair. The smell is refreshing and lasts all day long. Can’t wait until next summer to wear it day in and day out
