Sage Lifestyle Perfume Oil Blends: Modern Gems

The theme of this post is simple: these perfume oils make me happy, and if you don't yet know about Sage Lifestyle either for their fragrances or their gorgeous jewelry and scarves (and more recently, other accessories), I'd love to be the one to point you in their direction.

These roll-on perfume blends comfort me, help me shake off chills, cool me down when I'm too warm and they feel so natural to wear. They are the unfailing panacea for my species (The Fragrance-Devoted/Obsessed). I used to wear perfume oils a lot in the more nomadic days of my youth, and that beautiful feeling always comes rushing back when I wear Sage's (albeit more sophisticated) fragrances. I only wish these lovely little roll-on bottles (1/4 oz) came in larger sizes, because I seem to go through them pretty quickly. The oils last quite a long time on my skin and are perfect for using on the hair and clothes, where they will last even longer. The oil base allows longer adherence to the skin and it's moisturizing for hair. There are two blends I've yet to try: Garnet & Amethyst and Sage & Citrine, but it won't be long until they're mine, too.

There are so few things in my life that have a universally mood-boosting effect on me, and there's something incredibly special and soulful about Sage Machado's fragrance design aesthetic. It makes me certain that she's someone I ought to have tea and a chat with someday.

    1. Hey Sweets! Yes, I didn't even mention the Japanese Washi paper tubes-- pretty incredible, huh? I could go on about these oils forever! My life would be less colorful without them.

  2. Hey Carrie, Jade & Topaz is my favorite out of the three! I have recently gone from not liking jasmine to actually loving it, and who can say no to some MANGO? ;)

    1. Hi Sunny! So you have tried Sage's oils?
      I think that Jade & Topaz is my current favorite. I use it the most now, but if you held my feet to the fire, I'd probably pick Onyx & Peridot. They are my birthstones AND it has dark coconut, which is a favorite incense-y note of mine. These blends are all about incense for me, with a vintage innocence about them.
