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 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
Sampled

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.

Love at first smell!

I thought the sample size was cute and perfect to carry in my purse for on the go freshening! But above all I really enjoy the scent. I'm going to have to buy the full size.

Fresh

I was a little wary of this product at first because when I received it as a sample, the smell of it came off as a little "grandma-y" while smelling it in the bottle. Gave it a chance, and it was light and refreshing. Loved the packaging too -super cute!

Nice subtle scent
Sampled

I will add this scent to my collection. I'm in my late 20s and i work in a hospital, so I need to be careful about which perfumes around sensitive patients. The smell is not so sweet that it feels childish, but not so flowery that I feel like an old woman. I like the roller-ball application which helps from using too much.

Loved this non-traditional scent!
Sampled

Although this is not a scent that I normally would pick up in the store and sample, I really enjoyed the scent and would consider buying a full-size bottle in the future. I don't feel that it would be an every day scent for me - as it's slightly heavier and more mature than what I normally wear, but it would be a great date night perfume.
