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.

Fresh, crisp but not me
Sampled

This scent is fresh and crisp. almost smels like cantaoupe with a herbal twist. It's nice and light but it disappears so quickly on me.

Great smell
Sampled

I got this sample right before leaving for spring break, it was a great addition to my week at the beach! The smell is great, not too strong but not too subtle. Will order full size once my sample runs out!

Cute, but not for me
Sampled

I really love the packaging of this perfume, but for whatever reason, I do not like the scent of it at all.

Subtle spring fragrance
Sampled

True to the description it smelled light and upbeat on my skin. While not overpowering, it didn't seem to last all day and I didn't notice any changes in how it smelled as the day wore on. That was ok because I don't like my perfume beating me into any rooms by being as pungent as muscle cream or bug spray and so the lightness and brevity of the scent worked for me. I am a fickle perfume consumer and while this didn't have the magical quality for me to get the full-sized version, I am interested enough in it to get the solid perfume or the rollerball set.

I just got the rollerball sample of this in this month's box. I really, really like it. It has a very clean, fresh smell to it. It reminds me of spring. It's not fruity at all. I usually like "deep" perfumes and men's cologne but this so light and pretty. My birthday isn't too far off and I'll be asking for the full size bottle :)

so fresh!

The smell is light and lovely. I'd never heard of this brand, but perfume samples are my favorite and I opened this first from this month's birchbox. Love it!

Good Fragrance

I really enjoy this fragrance. It isn't too overpowering, which is great. This size is nice for a night out in a clutch and i like the rollerball.

delicious
Sampled

i thought the smell was beautiful. usually scents wear off my skin very quickly but this has stayed on for several hours so far and just as strong as when it went on. i have been having everyone smell it and everyone has really enjoyed it. even my dog caught whiff of my wrist and stood there for a minute smelling it which i have never seen her do with a perfume before.
