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, but not for me...
Sampled

I love the packaging. I've never gotten a fragrance sample with so much attention to detail. The scent is quite lovely, but a little too sweet for my taste. I'm very curious about the other scents though, so I might get the sampler since I'm impressed with the quality of the product.

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.

Fresh, fun, light scent
Sampled

I enjoyed the scent. It is different than my usual perfume and had a lighter, airy quality. The longer I wore the perfume the better it seemed to smell! I would buy this product.

Not for me

I thought the packaging for this sample was adorable, but the scent was not for me. I thought it had a more mature scent than what I was expecting.

Not the scent for me.

Adorable packaging and an easy roll-on applicator. It is just not a scent I am fond of. It could be great but there is just something off. Too sweet smelling.

Too "Cute"
Sampled

I find that most of the perfume samples I receive are too cloying for my tastes. Fruity/sugary perfumes are not for me. I just prefer tuberose, and even old-ladyish Orientals.

amazing!

i got a sample of this scent in my box. from the description i was unsure of it, but it is the perfect spring scent! very juicy and fruity without smelling like many of those jarringly sweet and artificial "fruity" scents on the market. i am a huge fan and will probably be purchasing the full size

New Signature Fragrance?
Sampled

I am very picky about the scents I wear, so whenever I receive samples, I don't give them much of a thought. This perfume caught my eye with its cute name and packaging, and I totally loved the scent. The description made it sound quite fruity, which is not my forte, but I didn't find it fruity at all. It is slightly smoky, slightly floral, but still mysterious enough to stand out from the generic scents these days. I'm definitely planning on purchasing.
