SAGE + fasten

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

The light, upbeat fragrance has notes of orchid and lotus flower mixed with fruity accents of mango, peach, and lychee. The SAGE + fasten line is cruelty-free and made without parabens, sulfates, or synthetic dyes

How to Use

Spritz over pulse points: wrists, throat, inner elbows, and even behind the knees.

Received as a gift

My friend received this in her birchbox a few months back, when she came in the room I instantly smelled the sweet fruity aroma. I asked her what she was wearing and she told me. I added it immediately to my cart and before I could place the order it was ordered and delivered to me as a gift.

Pro's : it is a younger sweet smell/aroma (some perfumes I have received in my box were more for ummm how do you say this...umm more seasoned women) I am still in my 20's so I do not care to smell out of that age bracket right now.

Con's: Similar fragrances are less expensive. I typically wear Ed Hardy "Love kills slowly" and that is only about $35.

Loving this smell!

The cucumber smell and lemon really go well together. Loving how light and easy the smell is. I can wear it at work or out on the town. My coworkers loved it so much one of them bought her own bottle.

Amazing perfume

I received the roller ball in my Birchbox and I used it once to try out and I got so many compliments. I works really well as a scent for me and I cannot wait to make it a part of my regular rotation. Huge fan and I intended to let everyone I know about it

Love this scent

It is very rare that I wear perfume but I loved the sample that I received. It has that fruity/lemon smell mixed together I will be buying full size.

love this stuff!

I'm not a perfume kinda gal because most scents to me are overwhelming or don't stick all day long. This scent is so fresh and natural smelling far from being too sweet or too floral. When this runs out I'll have to get some more.

Soft clean energizing scent

I had not heard of this brand before but I have got to say that I like it! I received the "Onward" sample which is a great pick me upper kind of scent. I keep it at the office and when I am dragging I put a little bit on my wrists and this scent re-energizes me. It does not last long, though, and I am not sure if it is because it is a rollerball sample. I might be interested in buying if I knew for sure that the eau de parfum lasted longer.

I actually liked a fragrance enough to purchase it. I can't even tell you how rare that is. A pleasing natural scent that did not leave me itchy and sneezy.
