Pinrose is a new to me perfume brand that I have been testing for several weeks now and wanted to share my thoughts in a comprehensive Pinrose perfume review. I am very picky when it comes to perfume and scents. I use unscented soap and lotions, I’m just extremely picky. I think this stems from an honest but embarrassing story of my sister telling me I smelt like throw up growing up and not in a mean little sister way but in a genuine I love you but you smell like throw up way. We still laugh about it to this day, but I never want to add too many scents to smell too much like something artificial.
Pinrose Perfume Review
Pinrose was built with the shared goal to create high-quality and interesting fragrances, reimagine the status quo, and laugh daily. Pinrose prides themself on whimsical fragrances free of the toxic chemicals. They are a clean beauty brand with all of our ingredients being Paraben & Phthalate-free. They also sustainably packaged suing eco-friendly FSC-certified materials. Lastly, Pinrose is vegan. They don’t test on animals and we don’t use animal ingredients.
They offer 10 different staple fragrances with something for everyone. I was able to connect one on one with the scent stylist and brand educator and was able to really dive into the brand and learn all about it. What I found most interesting is Pinrose likes to think of fragrances as a wardrobe. I think so many people get stuck in this rut of having a signature scent that they only wear. But scents are so powerful when you smell something you are immediately reminded of time or memory. I’ve heard a lot of people buy a special perfume for their wedding day or when they are pregnant to remind them of their feelings and transport them back to that time. I absolutely love this idea and will definitely be implementing in my life.
Because of this wardrobe, they have scents designed for everyone. For example, Lil’ Dipper and Merry Maker are mommy friendly scents designed with the pregnant sensitive nose momma in mind. How cool is that?!
They also believe in layering fragrances to create endless possibilities and scents for different occasions. Just like layering clothes are accessories, layering scents can give you a new spin on an already favorite scent.
I was introduced to Pinrose by the way of their scent quiz and discovery set. this short 12-question quiz makes it really great to have a starting point because finding a scent especially online is very difficult. From there, the quiz gives you a perfume profile, your perfume palette, and your perfume match in way of a discovery starter kit.
Take the scent quiz here.
I love the starter kit because you can test multiple different scents multiple times and see how you like them. You can also start layering the scents as Pinrose recommends. They are also really great for travel or keeping in your purse for a refresh. Plus, this is a really affordable way to try something new with the discovery sets starting at $25 .
When I took the scent quiz I received that I would best match with the Secret Genius starter kit which included the fragrances Secret Genius, Sun Saint and Mystical Misfit.
Secret Genius: Vanilla, Caramel, and Sandalwood. It’s the national bestseller- a very sexy modern vanilla. It is Clever, Eloquent, and seductive.
This scent reminds me of a grown-up version of Warm Vanilla Sugar from Bath and Body Works
Sun Saint: Lime, Mandarin, Sea Salt, Cashmere, Musk, Coconut, and Sandalwood
It is the perfect Summer Fragrance. Chill, Breezy, and Sparkling. Although described as a summer scent this fragrance smells very light, fresh, and clean.
Mystical Misfit: Cassis, Peach, Berry, Jasmine, Rose, Geranium, Patchouli
It is offbeat, lovable, and Surprising.
Some perfumes I have liked and used in the past are Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana and Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I just fell in love with Sun Saint. It’s a great everyday scent that is fresh but not overwhelming. Although it’s described as a summer scent I could see myself wearing this all year round. I also liked Secret Genius for more a date night or girls night fragrances.
Overall, I have really grown to love my daily routine of spritzing my Pinrose perfume on because it smells so delightful. I also find that is very long-wearing and even in the summer heat and sweat I still smell wonderful.
If you are looking to dip your toes in I would highly recommend starting with the discovery sets because they are very affordable and allows you to try and you receive 30 packets so you can try it for a full month. Pinrose was also nice enough to give me a coupon code for free shipping! I would recommend starting with the quiz and then the discovery set to help you find one that you love or they also have a discovery set with all of the fragrances if you just want to try them all. Then one you find a fragrance you love you can purchase the full size so you know exactly what you are getting!
