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.

Fab Feminine Perfume
Sampled

I love how this smells! Perfume is always a scary thing to buy before sampling, but this one is great! Light and feminine, without being too overpowering. It's a must have!

the sample size is very generous, but this scent is just not my style. i'm not sure what it is that i don't like....but it's not for me.

Meh..

I wasn't impressed by this product. I loved the scent but it was so light that I asked my boyfriend if he could smell it and all he could smell was the hair mask I had just used in the shower. I like potent perfumes and this just doesn't cut it.

nice

I liked the smell but when I tried to roll the rollerball over my wrist it wouldn't roll and it was a bit of a struggle to get the perfume onto my skin. wish it was a spray instead.

Really liked the rollerball sample size and the scent was feminine and pretty, it just didn't last long on me.

Smells pretty, but not for me.
Sampled

I was really excited about this sample because I love all natural products and I love fragrances. It smelled great in the container, but not when I put it on my skin. It was probably a funky combination of my natural scent and the sample. I would love it as a candle!

Nice scent, but the roller ball stopped working after the 3rd try.

Pretty Nice

I have to begin by saying that the packaging for this perfume is FAR superior to most of the perfume samples we get in our Birchboxes. I didn't find the smell off putting. It was just a little heavy and too floral for what I like to wear in spring and summer. I'll be saving to use this in the fall.

Lovely scent, but not my style
Sampled

The scent of this perfume is lovely, but very subtle. I tend to go for more fragrant and floral/musky scents, versus this very fresh scent.

Nice fragrance not too strong

I wear this scent daily mixed with Pacifica's Tuscan Blood Orange. I think they pair well together. I've always been one to blend fragrances together that I loved to make my own signature scent. I also love that this brand is cruelty free!
