I LOVE this scent. I purchased it on sale at Sephora for 20.00 in the bottle shaped like a big lighter (which is super awesome, by the way). The other bottle style is gorgeous as well! I tend to like scents that are more 'dark' and less girly/sweet, ect. As for staying power...so far, so good! I've had it on for almost 5 hours and can still smell it on myself. The only reason im giving a 4 for packaging is because sometimes its a bit difficult to get it to spray...but otherwise, no complaints. I will def. repurchase this when I run out!

I've been waiting for this to be sold in Canadian Sephora stores for YEARS. It's finally available and I didn't hesitate to purchase. I even bought the biggest bottle -$75. It's my favourite favourite scent, extremely unique. It's flirty, seductive, sexy... subtle and sweet, professional, and wearable during the day. It's just all of that together!! I love it and I wear it whenever I could. The box it was packaged in is pretty cool too. LOVE!

I couldn't decide whether to give this a 4 or a 5, but I decided to go with a 5 because of how versatile it is. I'm a fan of sweet, strong fragrances (Angel, Twilight Woods, Hypnotic Poison, etc etc etc). This wears the best year-round of any of this type of fragrance I've ever tried. This doesn't become cloying or overwhelming even in Southern CA summer heat. That is saying a lot. I finished my bottle about a month ago and despite the 30 or so fragrances I own I find myself missing it already. This gets a lot of compliments, especially from men - I even let my best friend wear it on a first date and she was complimented on it. This isn't the most long-lasting scent, and unfortunately there are no body products for layering, but there is a rollerball for touch-ups.
I've tried more than my fair share of celebrity perfumes, and even the ones that are nice I don't usually think, "I can see why this has her name on it, it fits her personality really well." With this perfume that's exactly what I think. Lastly, the bottle is to-die-for. She is so consistently amazing with her product packaging!

This perfume is sweet in a subtle way!!!! Love it!!!

Absolute favorite perfume for the past 1.5 years. It has a wonderful sweet florally scent, but not cloyingly so. I did not find I enjoyed Sinner nearly as much, though the newer one (Adora?) I have found pleasant in sample form.

I love this scent :))))

I first got this at 13, as a gift from my grandmother. I was obsessed with all things Kat related, so this and Sinner was perfect. However I found it way to sweet for me, the totally gothic girl
Flash forward 2 and a half years. (Okay...3.)
I tried this again and while its sweet, it's not buttercupcake-y sweet. There's definitely florals in there, a little crystalized sugar. During the drydown is when you get the sweet cupcake/caramel notes everyone talks about. But its not awful, and adds dimensions to those days when I just want to feel cute again.
Best of all, unlike sinner, Saint has fabulous staying power. Through my entire day (7-8 hours) I kept catching whiffs of it, which was nice.
When I run out, I am certainly repurchasing

I love this scent! It has a sweet, musk scent. It has decent staying power too! I have a difficult time finding a scent that I like. Hoping to get a bottle for my birthday!

I love this perfume! It has a light vanilla scent. I like perfumes that are barely there, and not too overpowering. This is one is just perfect for that. It's light and airy. Perfect for everyday use.

smells beautiful and feminine very warm and sweet but not fruity, floral or overly sweet. I don't care for overtly vanilla scents but this has enough spice to diguise it. Warm scent for fall or winter. Stays on a long time too (as vanilla based scents usually do)
EDIT: I changed my mind only on one aspect, it is just a bit too sweet for my tastes. I am not usually into really sweet perfumes. But still 5 lippies because that is just my personal preference and it does smell great!

I absolutely LOVE this perfume. I smelled it at Sephora, fell in love with it, then told my boyfriend about it and about a week later, he got it for me for our 3 year anniversary and it's now the only perfume I use! I can not rave about this perfume enough. I'm constantly telling people about it, and when people ask what I'm wearing I rave to them about it! :P It smells amazing... My only complaint is that it wears off on me easily, but that kind of thing really just depends on the person. What may only last on me for an hour, could last on you for 6 hours. Either way, I love this perfume, and plan on using it for a long time!
The description of the scent is... "The sweet nectar of Mirabelle Plum and sparkling juicy mandarin create an addictive, mouth-watering top. At the heart, exotic, heady Tiare flower and sweet, tempting caramel are adorned with the velvety floralcy of jasmine, the queen of the night, as she emits her spellbinding fragrance into the sky. Sensual vanilla and creamy musk combine with the warmth of sandalwood for a comforting dry down.
Also, the packaging is great. It looks kind of like a potion bottle, and has a "ink seal" on the cap. :]

Received a sample of this from Sephora. Smells clean & slightly sweet with a hint of vanilla and yet it doesn't seem overpowering, which is something I like in a fragrance. I would consider getting a rollerball version of this as it is not something I'd want to wear every single day and make my signature fragrance, but for a change of pace, it's pretty good.

I'm a huge fan of rollerball perfumes (they fit nicely into your purse, and last forever). I was shopping at Sephora and the saleswoman suggested that I take a look at the Kat Von D scents. I gave her the WTF look, and figured nothing good could come out smelling her scents. Well, I was wrong as this scent is divine. Saint reminds me of birthday cake (sweet, vanilla, slightly citrusy), without being too juvinelle or over-powering. I have gotten so many compliments on this scent. Will definately repurchase again!

"Saint" is a sugary sweet scent that's childlike and innocent. It is a foil to Kat Von D's "Sinner"
With that being said, it's a great scent. Sugary, sure, but if you're in the mood for it, it's wonderful. I pair it with a spritz of "Sinner" and it makes a custom perfume that gets heads to turn for all the right reasons.
The sweetness doesnt really morph much on the skin, at least for me anyway, and it tends to last a while.
I gave this one less lippy than "Sinner" because I tend to use the other one more.

I was really looking forward to trying this after reading all the reviews. I tried it out at Sephora today and though it's not an offensive scent at all it barely registers on my skin as much of anything, a little bit of generic white flowers but that's it. Saint also lasts only about 1/2 hour on my "perfume eating" skin! I do look forward to trying Sinner as I've also heard good things about it.

I love this scent so much. I am a fan of sweet scents, but had yet to find "the one". I think this is it. It's sweet, but not childish or "hookerish". I have both the rollerball and the purser spray. The purser spray is so pretty and different! My only complaint is that the scent doesn't last very long at all. I hope they expand the options to include either a longer lasting parfum option, or lotions, etc. for layering.

I was looking to switch over to another fragrance but I always like my perfumes to smell in the sweet and light category. I like orientals with lots of vanilla. I like to smell like a big sweet cake. This is a great scent as it isn't too obnoxious on the kiddie side of candy/vanilla/cake but has a slightly sweet side with a hint of sexy musk. I think it's a great balance for someone like me that likes the sweet but is getting a little old for it. Is 28 too old? i guess it's relative. The staying power is average. I don't think it's that poor. The price is good but Sephora cannot keep this product in stock and they say that they won't be getting it back in (the 1.7oz bottle) until March 2011. That is insane to me. That is a long time to be missing out on sales from Saint fans. Maybe they are improving the formula as a lot of people have mentioned the issue with it's lasting power.

Upon first whiff of this right out of the bottle, all of my friends and I immediately smelled the same thing: cake. It is probably the strong, sweet-smelling vanilla. I really couldn't smell the 'fruitiness' it claims to have until I put it on my skin. I love how it doesn't smell flowery and the jasmine isn't too strong. No matter how sweet it smells, it is not an old-lady perfume. Once on my skin, the fruity, juicy mandarin smell was more apparent after a few minutes. I still wouldn't describe 'Saint' as a fruity smell, despite the different fruity notes. It isn't overpowering or musky in its sweetness, though a few of my friends thought it smelled like they were rubbing themselves with marshmellow fluff when using it. I really love this smell, though it mixes on everyone's skin differently, so you would have to try it out yourself to find out if you really like it or not. It's comforting, smooth, sweet, warm, delicious and juicy.

I'm undecided as to whether I like this perfume.
The smell is absolutely gorgeous and I find it to be really unique but then again, the scent simply won't stay put on me.
