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, not overwhelming
Purchased

This is just a nice fragrance. It's a lot warmer and much more of a "skin scent" than I was expecting (especially after the dry down fade). It still has the freshness I was expecting, but it's not a fragrance that once you spray it on that people will automatically recognize is perfume. I like it a lot, though.

Not a fragrance girl

But I love this one. It is light and subtle and uplifting. Nothing too fruity or too musky about this frangrance. This is definitely a frangrance for women who don't wear fragrance. A nice little addition to a summer outfit.

Summer Scent
Purchased

This is a great summer scent. I don't think it's lasts as long as other scents but it is light enough to not be overpowering.

Wish I could eat this!

This perfume smells wonderful. I've noticed that the scent does seem to fade if my skin is dry. If I've hydrated it lasts for quite a while. I receive compliments whenever I wear it, but only from those who are within my personal area, say 5 to 6 feet. No overpowering yucks! Really love this and am seriously considering making it my daily scent. -1 * because the roller ball does not work easily. It is very frustrating to fight with my perfume.

Subtle

A lot of perfumes are personal preference; this one wasn't bad, though not really my taste. I felt it had a subtle, almost powdery scent, but it didn't seem to last very long on me. Probably not something I'd buy, but I'll enjoy the sample.

Smells so great

This has an amazing smell. Not perfumy at all, clean and sweet smelling . Roller ball applicator is good. Wish it was a bigger size

Revisited

I hated this perfume when I first received it. It's not something that I'd normally wear. I'm re-reviewing because my mind has changed - I sucked it up and tried it out. When you put the scent on skin, something changes. It smells delightful for hours. It's still sort of powdery smelling, but in a subdued and delicate (not old lady) way. Lasting power is commendable. I will be looking into their other scents!

Smells good

I love this light fruity scent. I was really happy it was in the form of a rollerball and oil so you just easily control amount of scent you want and it lasts.

Very subtle

This perfume had a nice subtle scent, but it was so light that I could hardly smell it. I do not think I would purchase this product because I don't think that anyone else would detect it if I were wearing it.

Simple and wonderful

I fell in Love with this scent. It's really light smelling and just smells so clean! The only down side is that it does seem to wear off pretty fast.
