SAGE + fasten Common Sense

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.

The smell is nice and I like the rollerball but, it doesn't pack quite enough punch for me. I like to be able to smell my perfume, this just wasn't what I would normally wear.

Super Sweet

This fragrance seems to be very high quality with no off notes, however it is too flowery / fruity / sweet for my preference. The fragrance fades quickly after dry down with no noticeable sillage.

The scent was nice enough, though a little on the juvenile side for my tastes. The main issue I had with this product is the utter lack of staying power. I applied it, and within a couple hours my husband could barely detect it, even with a close sniff.

The scent was very light and not overpowering like most perfumes, great for every day wear.

I really don't enjoy the scent. Smells like a cheap perfume. Not memorable at all.

It didn't have a sweet smell. I usually go for light and sweet.

too sweet

I didn't really care for this fragrance. I thought it was cloyingly sweet. I did appreciate that it's very light and not an overwhelming fragrance.
