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.

It was a fairly pleasant scent, but seemed to wear off quickly; it didn't seem to last as long as a regular eau de toilette. Had to reapply halfway through the day.

Yum!

Smells great, a perfect scent for summer! Went on light, but when layered it was enough to last all day.

Light and summery scent!

This is a light and fruity scent perfect for summer. While the scent smells great going on, it does not seem to last very long. It is a great everyday scent but will not last until the end of the day.

Lovely

Smells gorgeous - very refreshing! The roll-on application is very quick and lasts for quite a while. The packaging for the sample was adorable.

Nice, but subtle

Similar to what other users have said, this scent is pretty subtle. I thought maybe once I wore it it would be more noticeable, but it really wasn't. I think it might just be my body chemistry though, as it seems to work well for other users. I also found that the sample was difficult to dispense (my roller didn't work well). Looks like the full-size might be a spritz though, and if so that would be a non issue!

Perfect perfume sample

This smell isn't overbearing like some perfumes. Its a nice light airy scent that could be worn daily which I like.

Love this scent

I love this scent. It's not strong at all and lasts a long time. It's a light scent and did not bother my nose at all.

LOVE!

such a light refreshing smell. It's perfect for a yoga pants day. Not too heavy and just the perfect amount of smell. I would love to get a bottle of this!!

Complimented

I received Common Sense in my box this month and I thought it was a really nice scent, but I wasn't totally sold on it. I was completely surprised, then, when my boyfriend noticed it and told me I smelled amazing. I don't think he has ever commented on a perfume I've worn in the past. I was pleasantly surprised and I think I'll be ordering a full size!
