SAGE + fasten

Birchbox Breakdown

As evidenced by our oft-updated Pinterest boards, Instagram feeds, and Tumblrs, we’re always on the lookout for sparks of inspiration. Since we’re used to pick-me-ups of the image and word variety, we were happily surprised to discover them in fragrance form too . SAGE + fasten founder Vivian Lee has created a line of four scents, each meant to embody the quality for which it’s named. And with this handy rollerball collection, we can take our inspiration wherever we go.

How it Works

The SAGE + fasten line is cruelty-free and made without parabens, sulfates, or synthetic dyes. Each set comes with four eau de parfums: aware, a soothing blend of rosemary, jasmine, ylang ylang, and sandalwood; character, an earthy combination of oakmoss, grass, juniper, and gardenia lily; honest, a delicate floral featuring cherry, pear, lily of the valley, vanilla, and tonka; and common sense, an upbeat fragrance inspired by Lee’s levelheaded mom with notes of orchid and lotus flower mixed with fruity accents.

How to Use

Glide on to pulse points: wrists, throat, inner elbows, and even behind the knees.

So light and clean
Purchased

These fragrances are light and I like to apply some of the scent at work during the day. I live in Phoenix and these are perfect for the summer weather and "refreshes" me during the day when it's 110 and not overwhelming. I really enjoy these scents.

Good Sents, don't last long
Purchased

I did enjoy the sents of these rollerballs, but when put on, they were gone in like 10 mins.. not good to have to keep applying.

Delightful, breezy scents!
Purchased

I love all of the scents in this collection, but quickly ran out of the cutely named Honesty rollerball. It smelled too yummy! The fragrances are sweet without being overpoweringly floral. They are perfect for daytime.

Cute, but not my favorite
Purchased

I bought this after reading great reviews about the Common Sense scent and I really wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I should have just stuck with the one scent instead of the sample collection. While Common Sense smells pretty good, there is really nothing special about the other three. They all smell too similar and have this odd sour note that I can't really describe. I might buy a larger Common Sense when this little guy runs out, but I'm not going to bother with the other three.

LOVE IT!!

I really love my Sage & Fasten perfume. So much so, I've used it so frequently, my roller ball has gotten stuck!

Nice collection
Purchased

I love common sense, and I wanted to try the rest of the line, they all smell nice but I loved common sense the most. A little too earthy for my liking but the rest are still good.

Stinks
Purchased

All four scents smell terrible. They smell synthetic and gross. It's a real shame, there was such potential. Bought these looking for a natural scent combo, but the mark was sorely missed.

I love the variety of scents
Purchased

Each sense is fabulous and not too strong. I love the packaging and the names of each one of the scents. Reading the names gives me a little boost in the morning. A great product if regular perfumes give you headaches and you just want a little something special.

Yum!
Purchased

I hadn't tried any of these scents before and decided to take a chance and order them. So glad I did! They all smell so yummy and fresh! I'm in love! Not to mention, the tin case and petite roll-ons are fabulous!

what a disappointment
Purchased

i'd been eyeballing these for awhile and so when they went on sale i was ecstatic. Surely out of four scents there would be one or two i would love, but sadly, no. Not only were the scents very generic, none of them lasted more than about 10 minutes. Zero sillage. Also, one of them was half full when i received it. :(
