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.

Pretty Nice
Sampled

I have to begin by saying that the packaging for this perfume is FAR superior to most of the perfume samples we get in our Birchboxes. I didn't find the smell off putting. It was just a little heavy and too floral for what I like to wear in spring and summer. I'll be saving to use this in the fall.

Fruity

Although I LOVE receiving perfume in my birchbox this was not my favorite one. The smell was a little to sweet for me BUT I did LOVE the roll on feature and the adorable little container it was packaged in!

great scent
Sampled

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this sample. The scent is nice and fruity, but not overpowering. And it's different than a lot of the scents out there on the market. I really liked it. The only criticism that was in the sample product itself...the rollerball didn't work that great on mine. It would make me hesitate to buy the rollerball set, but I would get this as a spray.

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.
