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. Common Sense, inspired by Lee’s levelheaded mom, is a refreshing and bright reminder to use our heads and keep our cool. Now that’s inspiring.

How it Works

The light, upbeat fragrance has notes of orchid and lotus flower mixed with fruity accents of mango, peach, and lychee. The SAGE + fasten line is cruelty-free and made without parabens, sulfates, or synthetic dyes. Bonus: The unique solid formula ups the blend’s staying power.

How to Use

Dab onto pulse points: wrists, throat, inner elbows, and even behind the knees.

If I could give it less stars, I would.....

I received the small rollerball in a monthly box and fell in love with the scent. This solid perfume, however, has absolutely no scent what so ever. I am returning it! A total waste of money.

Great scent for all situations!

The roll-on container is perfect for traveling. It is also a scent that will work for any occasion. It is soft, yet present. It has florals, yet is tamed by whispers of a more natural fragrance. Perfect for work and date night!

Great scent
Purchased

I love this scent! It doesn't last too long, but it's easy to take along for touch ups since it's a solid perfume. Nice and lightweight, great scent for spring and summer.

Nice scent, tricky application
Purchased

While this scent is very pleasant and natural, I find the solid perfume compact with the pearl in the center a little tricky to apply. I have used my fingertips or tried to rub my wrists straight into the compact. Either way I feel like I am not applying efficiently. Other than that I like it and think it's great for traveling!

Nice, fresh scent
Purchased

I bought this after receiver the roller in my box. Gotta love the convenience of the solid! Nice, light fragrance. It's a little sweeter than I might normally pick though.

Floral babypowder

I'm not a huge fan of this scent. It burns my nose a bit and to me smells like floral baby powder. It's not awful, and I'll hold on to it just in case, but I wouldn't purchase this.

Perfect scent!

I love the fresh scent of this perfume. As others have said, it doesn't last very long but I'd rather have a scent that is light and needs to be reapplied than a scent that is too powerful. I also am a big fan of solid perfumes, they're so easy to travel with.

good, but for a limited time

This is such a light & airy scent. It complements most of my scented body lotions (ie citrus) I just wish it lasted longer.

Wonderful smell
Purchased

I love the scent. It's light, feminine, and clean... and perfect for spring/summer. It's also a great perfume to wear to work because it isn't too invasive but just smells really awesome. I only wish it lasted longer. I found myself reapplying it several times. I think I will get the spray and just keep this in my purse to freshen up.

Love the smell

I love the smell of this perfume! It's a sweet, light, fresh and clean scent. The only thing is that it doesn't seem to last very long. I really like it though.
