Reviews of Sinner

This scent has been released in a new bottle (IMO, much better than the old "wash tap" bottle cap) in 2017, and it's by far my favourite of the Kat Von D scents. (The bottles are now covered in Goth-inspired filligree.) This is not haute parfumery, but a pleasant scent for everyday wear. The deep fruit/spice/wood scent is better than the sister scent, Sinner. Longevity and sillage are average. Don't waste money buying the high-priced bottles on eBay. Instead, enjoy a new bottle of this scent.

This is a nice quality for value fragrance. It is not as well blended as I like (the florals and spice stick out a little sharp). Still, quite a nice fragrance. Silage is close to the body (within arms length).

Longevity, out of a roller ball, on moisturized (normally dry) skin, about 2-3 or so hours. Not a lot of transition to it, but I'd rather it do what it does well than try too hard.

After a while the sharpness of the spices starts to soften and you get a sweet, warm floral vanilla. A little "spicy" at first for office wear, so apply 20 minutes before you arrive at work. A good day or evening fall fragrance.

At the time of this writing (2016) this fragrance has been discontinued.

Sinner kicks off with a fantastic blackberry jam smell that's probably the reason for its cult following and high eBay prices. There's patchouli under the jam, as well as a rubbery musk and some tobacco, as well as something kind of green, and it's all kind of inky and dark. It's hard to describe, but there's also a weird sort of chemical effusiveness to Sinner, like the whole thing is surrounded by a weird chemical haze that doesn't smell like anything up close, but that gives off sweet fruity sillage.

All in all, that blackberry jam note really is good, but that chemical haze is distracting, while everything else seems to think it's gothic and artful, but is in actuality just a corporate fruitchouli posing as punk. This belongs in the same genre as gothic froutchoulis like Tom Ford's Noir de Noir and CDG2, but lacks their wild ridiculousness. If Noir De Noir is goth goddess Siouxsie Sioux and CDG2 is anime horror porn, then Sinner is just Kat Von D, a manufactured reality TV pseudo-celebrity. It's not that Sinner is bad, it's just not the work of genre-defining punk art it tries to present itself as...
