CPNA Find: The Sage Lifestyle

Press Sample

Happy last day of August, everyone! With the first day of fall only three weeks away, it is difficult to believe summer is almost over given the heat advisory we are experiencing here in Northern California. We are expected to be in the triple digits or immediately under for at least another week, so if I disappear and everyone starts to wonder about me, chances are I have melted in the heat. Let's jump in on today's post before my brain fries for the day!


I'm back with another beauty find from last month's Cosmoprof North America for today's blog post. I had the pleasure of meeting with Sage, the creative owner behind the brand The Sage Lifestyle, and I brought two of her beautifully scented perfume oils back home with me. Named for different gemstones, Sage took the time to research the history of each stone in order to select the perfect assortment of flowers and essences that evoke the colour and mood of each specific stone. As an avid rockhound and stone collector, I have a lot of respect for additional time required to develop each of these unique scents. I got to smell almost the full brand scent lineup at Cosmoprof North America, and I was thoroughly impressed with how well each scent truly seemed to fit their own individual inspirations. Let's get a closer look at Diamond and Onyx perfume oils!

Diamond Roll-On Perfume Oil

The Diamond: the strongest substance known to man- known for clarity, resilience, and exquisite timeless beauty. Sage waited for over a decade to approach this most iconic stone and translate into a scent- waiting for the right materials, the right moment. And finally, it has come- the scent itself is shimmering and clear, acting as its namesake to conduct both light and heat, and reflect the wearers true beauty. With the sheerest base notes blending together to create this scent, both soft and warm, we experience the subtle hint of Indian sandalwood, white crisp amber, clean oceanic musk - and a touch of rain dew on the skin at morning- letting the light in.

Yes, dear readers, this perfume oil is as glorious as this description pulled from The Sage Lifestyle website! I have an affinity towards fresh scents, and I particularly love the subtle aquatic touch! It also has really nice lasting power on its own, and I could clearly still smell this fragrance on my arm eleven hours after application! This is a beautiful fragrance for a day-time scent and one I have been enjoying often this past month!

The Diamond Roll-On Perfume Oil is stored in a 1/8oz roll-on bottle. The bottle is then packaged in this beautiful handmade Japanese Washi paper box, making it the ideal travel companion!

Retail: $45.00

Onyx Roll-On Perfume Oil

Onyx: (Birthstone for August) A fragrance that is as darkly opulent as the stone for which it was named, Onyx begins with a bewitching top note accord of black coconut, tobacco and oakmoss. Its rich and enveloping base note accord of vanilla, amber and sheer musk caresses the skin like sweet dew born of nocturnal tropical air. A perfume of almost primeval intensity, Onyx evokes nature's beauty in its darkest forms: a jungle's depths, volcanic heat and velvety night skies.

Onyx is the perfect fragrance for when you want to leave the lighter scents behind and wear something sumptuous and deep! As much as I like my lighter scents during the day, I want something a little more intense and bold for when I want to feel sexy or a night on the town. This gorgeous scent is sure to get a few temperatures rising! Even though this is a scent I personally prefer to wear in the evenings, I have tested it for longevity during the day and could still smell this fragrance on my arm eleven hours after application.

Like Diamond, the Onyx Roll-On Perfume Oil is packaged in a 1/8oz glass bottle with a plastic roll-on applicator. Onyx is also then places in a handmade Japanese Washi paper box, which serves for stunning presentation as well as additional security to make it the ideal travel perfume.

Retail: $45.00

I am really impressed with the quality of these perfume oils from The Sage Lifestyle! These fragrances certainly evoke the essence of the gemstones that inspired them, and I enjoy that the scents are so long wearing. When it comes to scents, I prefer roll-on style applications over a mist type for finer control of scent placement. Can we talk about the packaging as well? The glass bottles with the beautiful brand logo is really nice, and the golden cap makes you feel like you are holding a quality product. I adore the extra step of providing handmade packing that is an exquisite addition that suits the brand perfectly!

These and a range of other perfume oils, candles, and jewelry items can be purchased from The Sage Lifestyle located here. If you are in the market for the your own favorite fragrance, I definitely recommend starting with this brand! Even if the descriptions of Diamond and Onyx aren't quite right for you, there are many other offerings that smell equally amazing. I know there are a few other scents going on my wishlist!

Are you in the market for a new fragrance? What gemstone-inspired fragrance do you think best suits your personality and taste? Before this post, were you familiar with The Sage Lifestyle? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  7. There's something so vintage and nostalgic about roll on perfume. Having allergies, I would imagine that it would be a little kinder to me. I think the oils actually last longer and hold it's intended scent too!
