Scent is a funny thing. You either like it or you hate it. I’ve always been attracted to lighter citrus scents more so than flowery scents for myself (although I often enjoy flowery or rose scents on others). I have been wearing pretty much the same scent for over ten years — Clinique’s Happy. I have taken breaks to try other scents along the way but I have always found myself going back to Happy because it makes me, well, happy. The name alone even makes me smile.
I’m not sure where my love of citrus began — I can tell you a story from my childhood where overeating mandarin oranges led to disastrous effects — so much so you’d think I’d be turned off citrus for life. But no, I definitely consider it my scent.
I find Clinique’s happy to be very light. It provides enough scent that I feel fresh but not so much that it inspires a headache in my migraine suffering spouse. I like the feel of the glass bottle and how it sprays just the right amount of scent in two presses. And that one small bottle lasts a long time — I don’t know the time frame exactly but it’s long. Which is good because $50 is nothing to sneeze at. When I need a new bottle it is usually timed right for when one of their promotions is on and because of the price I end up with a free kit which usually includes a lipstick, eye shadow, or mascara as a bonus.
Clinique can be found at department stores like the Bay or Sears. Or if you are in the U.S. you can buy it from their official website.
