I used to work in a store that carried Pinrose and I would take the quiz all the time just for fun. At that time Tamborine dreamer was a favorite. However I already had a very large (17+) fragrance collection and couldn't justify adding another. Then a year ago a friend of mine asked me if I've ever tried Sun saint? It's Summer time in a bottle she said. From the first spritz of her bottle I was in LOVE! Summer in a bottle Yes! Fake coconutty sun tan lotion it is not. I don't find this fragrance sweet, but it does have fruity undertones to it. I do find the scent warm, refreshing and totally calming. This is more than a fragrance. Sun saint is an emotion, a memory, a day dream and a joy to wear.
I was not sure I would like this scent, it was recommended when I took the quiz, and it certainly wasn't one I would have chosen by it's description, but this is going to be a favorite. I have not been able to wear scents for years, Thank You so much for creating this, and the other, fabulous perfumes.
I decided to try ALL the Pinrose scents so I bought the full sample set. This is the only one I can say is really ME. It's just such a simple, clean scent and makes me feel like I'm standing on an island beach.
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.
