Testimonials

See what perfumistas are saying about our fragrances!
"One of the sweetest, most satisfying things about this perfume is how it clings to fabrics, and everytime my nose is near the collar and cuffs of my favorite sweater, that fresh expansiveness returns. It's not the same living, warm scent as it is on skin, it's the scent of frozen time. Memories on ice with a twist. Diamond is the perfect fragrance for Spring. The feeling of limitless space, perpetual movement, endless possibilities and all the fresh air you can drink in." - Caroline S.

"Onyx is my absolute Holy Grail of all time and my favorite beauty secret, my most prized beauty item. Normally I'm not one to hoard my perfumes, or any beauty item, or get stabby when someone asks what I'm wearing. But if I've got Onyx on, I tell them it's a secret. I'm complemented on my scent at least once a day by a stranger. After all, it's not everyday a girl finds a perfume that really works with her body chemistry, embodies her personality, is sexy and smokey, wears close to the skin, is comforting and intriguing, lasts all and comes in beautiful and easily transportable packaging!" - Christine M.

"Oh, how I love Pearl. It's like a warm, fuzzy sweater. The Sandalwood is dry and soft, but the Vanilla sweetens it up just enough, giving it a more feminine feel. I find the lasting power of SM oils to be outstanding. It wears close to the skin, yet every time I move my head or brush my hair, I get soft little clouds of scent that surround me and those close to me always seem to compliment. This is swoon material. And seriously, how adorable is the packaging? Too cute! - Arachne M.

"I don't normally favour aquatic fragrances, but this is different. A little strong at first with the Grapefruit and Black Currant creating a fresh sea breeze, and these notes hold on for a bit. But soon, the white flowers appear with the Blue Chamomile and it becomes an almost ethereal potion with the Sandalwood and Musk slowly bringing out the warmth. Like sunlight shimmering across the water and touching on lotus blossoms, with a hint of fresh green leaves. Not long after that, it begins to whisper to me... to come to the water. This is what a water nymph or a mermaid smells like, or what she would wear if she wore perfume." - Bianca D.

"I got a sample of this with my last order and from the first sniff to all the whiffs I got while sitting at my desk at work, I was in love. This fragrance is just so sexy and classy. I don't know how to describe different notes but what I know is, this is for the confident, classy, sexy lady. It is so crisp and clean; definitely not overpowering on me, but with a good silage and longevity. My husband loves it on my so that's a plus! I have to get more when my sample vial is done because this is just perfect for the Spring and Summer!" - Rita A.

"As they say ~ chemistry is everything! On me, Moonstone soars softly, beautifully. It's exquisite, and in the beginning even a bit fragile. I get an intimate dance between the Gardenia and the Vanilla pod w/the other notes playing the soft background music. They are indeed somewhere tropical and only have eyes for each other as they sway to and fro. I would've never guesses that Gardenia would take the lead. Apparently she's a very liberated beauty. Eventually, Amber enters the scene and brings a nice resonance to the band. When you're in a relationship, it's very important for it to have some depth." - Karina C.

"Just luverly! Breezy, green, herby Sage and Fresh Cucumber to start with and after a while a sweetness comes through with the Sweet Pea. It smells like freshly cut, slightly sweetened flower stems. Later the Musk and Tonka Bean round it out in a most yummy way. It seems to combine really well with Amethyst too. I haven't mixed them, but I wear Amethyst on one hand and Sage on the other and the scent that wafts up to my nose really blooms beautifully!" -  Becca D.

"I keep a tightly sealed dark blue glass jar with a chunk of pure, unadulterated Amber from a chemist's supply. On moments when I need a smile, I reach for that jar and get a whiff of the Real Deal. Of all the other Amber fragrances out there, only Sage Machado captures so perfectly that single exquisite note. And unlike a lump in a jar, I can actually *wear* Sage Machado's Amber. Yes, there are supporting notes - gentle traces of Blonde Wood and faint hints of Orange Rind, but Ms. Machado has so perfectly subdued them, letting the star ingredient do what it does best: shine, glow and burnish." - Zora T.

"Garnet is a Rose, Patchouli and Amber blend with faint fruity overtones. This is a Rose for people who hate Rose and a Patchouli for people who hate Patchouli. It's so seamlessly blended that it smells like neither. This is definitely a "vintage" - smelling scent, and it transports me back in time to another era, when the world was more magical and superstitious. And glamorous. Garnet is sexy and mysterious, like something you would find in a French bordello in the 1920s. Nothing headshoppy about this at all - it is classy, sexy and worth every penny. I will buy it over and over." - Penelope G.

"This is not your ordinary, boring Vanilla! Two parts Vanilla, one part fruit and one part Sandalwood and you have here a Vanilla scent you yearn for. Topaz puts other Vanilla's to shame. This and Amber are tied as my favorite Sage fragrance (with Pearl as a close second). The comforting Vanilla. fruity top notes and spicy base notes definitely make this full size worthy!" - Jennifer O.

"A dark Fig. I love Figs and tend to enjoy Fig fragrances. I really like how Peridot is a Fig paired with a delicious Amber; a Fig that I can wear in cooler weather. Peridot opens as green Fig leaves over a Warm Amber. It's one of those more "Coconut" Figs that is bitter and green. With time, Peridot wears as a rich, creamy Amber with a skin-hugging Musk. Because of the contrast of Fig leaves and rich Amber, I think of Peridot as a late harvest fragrance - earthy, warm and sensual." - Valerie W.

"Citrine - sparkling, clean, crisp, citrus delight... It has a mild green undertone to it that is just delicious. This is my go-to daytime fragrance, I get so many compliments on it - but I am greedy to share... This is my beauty secret ladies, sorry! I love to mix this with Sage's Amber for the night time... It's extraordinary and changes the experience completely." - Francine L.

"Purple perfection... Like a walk through the garden on a bright sunny day. Romantic, feminine, and intoxicating! Somehow I feel like I am in Monet's Garden when I wear this, paired with the perfect floral sundress I am in heaven!!! I swear the tiny bit of Lavender is so cleansing on me as well, I smell it but ever so gently! Perfection!" - Nina G.

"Like a day at the beach in a bottle... I love this, it reminds me of long days in the sand and sun. The gentle Orange Blossom is just dreamy. It is warm yet gently floral in just all the right ways. This is a keeper!!! One of my favorites from Sage! My husband LOVES this and that always makes me feel good!" - Simone K.

"Fruity and warm, yet somehow clean in the end... What an exploration and divinely delicious fruity floral. Every time I wear this I feel like I just stepped out of the shower and I am sparkling clean. Carnelian is such an unusual perfume, I can't say I've ever smelled anything quite like it. This is my signature scent and I get compliments every time I wear it!" - Fiona O.

"This is one of the most intense, dark, rich, unique and intoxicating perfumes I have ever experienced! It is a true vintage inspired European perfume that has such an incredibly wide range of notes that hit you so beautifully one by one. The Tuberose and Jasmine steal the show yet the warmth of the Blood Orange, Amber and Musk linger on so perfectly - making Jade a perfume that one will always remember! I think I have found my fragrance soulmate!" - Delilah B.

"What a beautiful scent! It's a divine, deep citrus, but not at all sharp or tart the way that some citrus scents can be. With a supporting cast of Mango and Papaya, Amber Carnelian wins the prize position as best, brightest and juiciest Blood Orange scent around. And believe me... I've tried them all! Soft citrus fragrance with a sweet, fruity heart and a soft Musk dry down. One of the few citrus fragrances that does not make me want to run, since it wears close to the skin and does not smell artificial. The scent also remains true on my skin, I'm in love!" - Sophia S.

"Simply divine! I want to lounge about like an Odalisque in a Henri Matisse painting. Such an opulent and slightly heady blend of Rose and Gardenia with the Amber giving it the gentlest spice and Patchouli giving it the softest earthiness. The sweet kiss of Blackberry and Vanilla gives it a kind of berry twist and the Watermelon? I'm not quite sure if I can smell it, but it just adds to its uniqueness! I hearts it!" - Jasmine J.

"I am completely blown away. This is uplifting and summer-y. Like a balmy summer night on a tropical island, possibly with a desert table nearby. This is a delicious, sweet and rich tropical fragrance that is great for the summer, but also suitable for the winter with how rich and warm it is if you are craving a taste of summer in the midst of frigid weather. I am eager to try out more scents by Sage Machado, but in the meantime, I'll be happy to just close my eyes and breathe in this beautiful scent. - Rhoda J.

"Wowza. Talk about sexy and mysterious. This is beyond gorgeous. Onyx Peridot is both dark and rich. The Coconut and Tobacco blend so well together. My skin adores it and I find the lasting power of Sage Machado's oils to be outstanding. It wears close to the skin yet every time I move my head or brush my hair I get soft little clouds of scent that surround me and those close to me always seem to compliment. I love how my sweaters smell after wearing this." - Monica D.

"I was a bit surprised to find out how much I love this scent! It starts out very grassy and green then immediately morphs into a lush, mildly sweet floral with just a hint of Sage. I find it to be perfect for the start of the autumn season but I'd probably even wear this all year long. Such an incredibly sexy scent." - Ingrid E.
