Kat Von D holding her Sinner and Saint perfumes

Kat Von D, of L.A. Ink on TLC, has her own brand of cosmetics and perfume at Sephora now. The line includes two perfumes, named in true bad-girl spirit, Sinner and Saint. The most interesting thing about them is the perfume format. They are sold not only as an eau de parfum spray, but also as a EDP roll-on ball pen, and as a solid in a black flower ring.

Sephora describes Sinner as:

“Light, delicate top notes of orange blossom, refreshing mandarin, and fleshy plum create a provocative, sultry heart. Rich jasmine blends seamlessly with a white-flower bouquet, beautifully tainted by the spicy warmth of cinnamon, an herb associated with ancient rituals of pleasure. A dark, mysterious back of earthy vetiver, patchouli, and woods enveloped in creamy vanilla and sensual musk lingers on the skin.”

And Saint is described as:

“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.”

The reception from customers seems to be well, with a 4 out of 5 star rating. Check them out at Sephora.com.

More information is coming out about the Creed store coming to New York City that I posted about on September 21. Turns out that Creed’s plan to launch it’s first store in North America doesn’t stop there. This first, new store, to be located at 794 Madison Avenue (corner of 67th Street), is a bit of a guinea pig. Upon it’s success, plans for two more U.S. stores will be carried out, possibly located in downtown Manhattan and Beverly Hills. And aggressive plans they are, with the Madison store to open in November, and the following two in the spring. Currently, the Paris based perfumer only has two locations, in Paris and Dubai. This big step forward is all about branding and reaching out to their international customers.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Creed is one of the oldest family businesses in the world and has had some of the most notable clients in its history, including royalty. For Creed’s 250th anniversary, which coincides with the planned opening of the New York store, the perfumer is releasing a commemorative fragrance from its archives. The 1936 creation, Windsor, will be available in limited edition leather wrapped, 1.7 oz. bottles for $405, and 8.4 oz. flacons numbered and signed by perfumer Olivier Creed, for $605. Windsor was originally created for the King Edward VIII (the Duke of Windsor), with ingredients from the British Empire. The worldly notes of Windsor consist of British gin, Jamaican lime, and Scottish highland pine top notes; a middle note of Duke of Windsor roses; and bottom notes of Bahamian orange, Canadian cedar, and Australian eucalyptus. Sounds like such a delectable scent, yet I would be still be hesitant to even open such a collectible item.

Every now and then I like to shine a light on the blogs and websites that I follow. Sniffapalooza Magazine is self-proclaimed “the ultimate online fragrance magazine.”  It certainly it dynamic literature for perfume lovers. The current issue features an interview with Jean-Claude Ellena, perfume-world celebrity and Hermès perfumer. Ellena was one of the subjects of Chandler Burr’s book “The Perfect Scent.” Sniffapalooza Magazine is full of current material to keep the perfume fanatic satisfied…. enjoy!
