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.

I liked the packaging of this product, it's the perfect size to put in my purse to use as the sample. I like the light/clean smell of the product. I am a perfume person, but I tend to like sweeter smells even though I do enjoy a clean scent.

Not longlasting

This product smells great. Not too floral which I love but for me the fragrance wore off too fast.

A little too sweet for me...
Sampled

This sample was a generous size and it had a convenient roller ball applicator. The scent was a little too sweet (almost fruity) for me, but may be just right for someone else.

Just not me....
Sampled

Love the little roller bottle, but this scent was just not right for me. I am older, but even to me, this scent seemed more suited to someone older. The scent did not last for even an hour despite a generous application.

not for me

The scent gave me an instant headache. It's just not my style. I did give it to a friend and she loved it.

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!
