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.

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.

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!

Love this scent!
Sampled

I received my March Birchbox last week and Common Sense was my favorite product in it. It smells wonderful. I have already ordered a full sized product and can't wait to receive it.

Light, fun scent
Sampled

I love this scent--very light and fun. It is fruity/floral but more grown-up than most fruity perfumes. However, the roller on the sample is kind of sticky and it was a pain to roll on. I think the full-size does not have a roller so that should alleviate that issue. I'd purchase as a splurge, but not for regular wear since I'm not much of a perfume gal.

Deliciously natural!
Sampled

I am officially obsessed with this perfume. I got a small sample size in my first box, and I can't get enough of it. I received several compliments on how I smelled within the first ten minutes of putting it on. The dreamy, almost Hawaiian scent of it is intoxicating, and the easy pocket size makes it my new go-to scent! It's relaxing, not at all overpowering, and the perfect day time smell!

If you're hesitant to try a natural, earthy tone - don't wait! Grab this perfume right now before summer starts!

too citrusy!
Sampled

I felt like this fragrance was a little lemony. May be better suitable for hand soap or a candle. Not on my neck!

This is my everyday glamour

Loving this fresh take on fruity florals with a delicious hint of something tropical, maybe coconut. I need my routine to be pretty low-maintenance, so this is a simple and perfect addition. Really brightens my mood...my boyfriend loves it too. I need a bigger bottle! Note: the spray pump is pretty powerful, so one bottle will probably actually last me forever.
