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.

Light and summery scent!

This is a light and fruity scent perfect for summer. While the scent smells great going on, it does not seem to last very long. It is a great everyday scent but will not last until the end of the day.

Nice, but subtle

Similar to what other users have said, this scent is pretty subtle. I thought maybe once I wore it it would be more noticeable, but it really wasn't. I think it might just be my body chemistry though, as it seems to work well for other users. I also found that the sample was difficult to dispense (my roller didn't work well). Looks like the full-size might be a spritz though, and if so that would be a non issue!

Good!

Honestly, this wasn't my favorite scent of all time when I first got the sample, but when I wore it, others complimented me on the scent, so it must go well with my chemistry. It smells like something you could wear no matter the occasion and it seems appropriate for all ages.

not for me
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of perfumes so I wouldn't personally wear this scent, but it does seem very light and floral so I can see why others love this product.

Not right for me
Sampled

I got really excited about this fragrance when I first put it on because it has really delightful fruity topnotes. However, as those faded into the heartnotes, it made me smell "a bit old lady-ish" (in the words of my boyfriend), which was disappointing.

Not something I'd use.
Sampled

I appreciate that the scent isn't overpowering or too perfumey, but this is not something I'd ever use. I'm just not a perfume wearer.

childish
Sampled

I love the packaging and appearance of this fragrance, but once I put it on it reminded me of the childish play perfumes I had growing up. I prefer something a little more "mature"

Sweet and Fresh
Sampled

A perfect scent for spring - fruity and fresh but not sickeningly strong. It's feminine and lovely.

Nice scent, but nothing extraordinary
Sampled

I have enjoyed using this sample, but the scent didn't really wow me. I like the fragrance, but not enough to splurge on another perfume. At times it is a bit too fruity for me.
