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.

Didn't last
Sampled

I like the scent, but it lasted maybe five minutes and was gone. Very refreshing, but not something I'd spend the money on.

Not Strong Enough
Sampled

Simply put, I didn't think this product had much of a scent at all. I mean, I get that they want to "empower, not overpower" but I need something! I definitely need something that is a bit stronger smelling and longer lasting!

too citrusy!
Sampled

I felt like this fragrance was a little lemony. May be better suitable for hand soap or a candle. Not on my neck!

Too "Cute"
Sampled

I find that most of the perfume samples I receive are too cloying for my tastes. Fruity/sugary perfumes are not for me. I just prefer tuberose, and even old-ladyish Orientals.

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.

Strong

I'm not a huge fan of citrus scents and this was a little strong....but if you LOVE the smell of oranges, I would give this a try! Like I said, this is a little strong so you won't have to worry about it fading away.

Summer Scent
Purchased

This is a great summer scent. I don't think it's lasts as long as other scents but it is light enough to not be overpowering.

Very subtle

This perfume had a nice subtle scent, but it was so light that I could hardly smell it. I do not think I would purchase this product because I don't think that anyone else would detect it if I were wearing it.

great product!

A nice and light, airy scent. It comes in a cute little bottle too. Perfect for everyday wear and small enough that you can throw it in your purse to reapply if needed.

Average

It was a fairly pleasant scent, but seemed to wear off quickly; it didn't seem to last as long as a regular eau de toilette. Had to reapply halfway through the day.
