I have to say I was very curious about this perfume when I first came out so when I saw it in stores I flipped out. Personally I loved both the saint and The Sinner sent. The best way I can describe the smell is that it is musky kind of similar to Bath & Body Works Teawood (if i remember the name right)? it has a underline of a floral Sandalwood scent but it smells musky. I want to say it smells like it has a slight hint of cinnamon as well. I let my boyfriend pick in between Saint and sinner just based on the smell and not on the perfume bottle so there wouldn\’t be a bias and he preferred sinner. needless to say he loves the scent. if you like smelling woodsy, musky with a hint of floral you will love this.
