Happy by Clinique
What Does Happy Smell Like
Happy by Clinique is a women's perfume that opens with a strong citrusy grapefruit scent, accompanied by the pronounced earthy aroma of laurel and a light touch of bergamot. As the initial rush of citrusy freshness mellows, the heart of the fragrance emerges, offering subtle floral layers. The soft and sweet jasmine note blends seamlessly with the delicate scent of orchid, adding depth and richness to the fragrance.
As the perfume settles and the floral notes gently fade, the comforting warmth of the base notes comes into play. The dominant smell of mimosa, with its sweet, honey-like aroma, overpowers the scent. The subtle lily notes offer a refreshing yet delicate floral aroma that almost feels like a soft whisper on the skin. The whisper of magnolia here is not so obvious but adds a sweet, lemony nuance to the perfume, making it feel more rounded and complete.
The overall profile of Happy by Clinique is dominated by a fresh and fruity scent, underpinned by sweet floral undertones. The citrus notes strike first and stays most prominent, while the floral and sweeter notes act as a supportive backdrop, adding depth and complexity to this joyful fragrance.
Review of Happy
Clinique's Happy for women, released in 1997, is a vibrant perfume that radiates a cheerful vibe. A light, fresh essence leads its scent profile, closely followed by a floral heart. The initial sniff can transport you to a summer citrus grove, where the scent of ripe fruits mingles with fresh flowers, before settling down to a more calming green and aquatic undertone.
Designed for the lady who enjoys a casual, everyday appeal, Happy is just as suitable for a busy office day as it is for a leisurely weekend brunch. Despite its light-hearted nature, its staying power is decent and it leaves a gentle trail in your wake. While it shines brightest in the warmth of spring and summer, it could bring a dash of sunshine to cooler days as well.
In terms of value, Happy by Clinique offers a good deal. It's a feel-good fragrance that lifts the spirits, suitable for those who prefer an uncomplicated and breezy scent.
