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. 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

How to Use

Spritz over pulse points: wrists, throat, inner elbows, and even behind the knees.

Scent Purchase

I actually liked a fragrance enough to purchase it. I can't even tell you how rare that is. A pleasing natural scent that did not leave me itchy and sneezy.

Love this!

Smells great. My current signature scent! Fresh and clean. Not heavy or artificial smelling. Have tried all their scents and this is the best.

Perfect scent!

I'm incredibly choosy about my scents- but when I find one I really love, I completely latch on! I used my sample size roller in my travel bag until there was nothing left and it was time to order a full size Common Sense.

My reason for docking a star on this perfect fragrance is because it appeared to be missing a good tenth of the bottle off the top. I did inquire with customer service, just to see if it was the norm with Sage + Fasten but I'm still not entirely convinced. I've never before purchased a bottle of fragrance that looked practically pre-owned. I was told the reason was to not fill the bottle too high and risk spillage... well... isn't that what the neck of the bottle is for?

Great clean smell

First sample of perfume I purchased. The scent is very clean and fresh. Scent last through out the day. Would like to try other scents in this collection .

Nice and clean

Great, vibrant smell. Not overpowering at all; wonderfully delicate. The only con is that it's a bit too delicate - I have to put more on than normal. I received a sample size that has a rollerball, so maybe a spray is better.

Different but still lovely

I am a Michael Kors devotee, but this scent is perfect when I just want something a little different. It turns more masculine on my skin than my traditional fragrance, mellowing into an earthier, muskier scent, yet is still fresh and clean, so it's a nice change of pace from time to time when I don't feel like "putting on perfume" but still want to feel like I'm pulled together.

LOVE!

I hate perfume! I'm allergic to it, I don't like how they smell, but this is like heaven in a bottle! It's not perfumey and it smells very clean and organic, which I LOVE!
