The details

Happy by Clinique is a pleasant, bright, and white floral EDP (Ea De Perfume). It is citrusy, flowery, and as its name suggests ‘happy’. The perfume is very well-balanced and has pleasant longevity which is hard to find these days.


The top notes of the fragrance are occupied by all of the citruses thus, you will notice the sweet yet tangy smells of orange, blood grapefruit, Indian mandarin, bergamot, plum, and apples. You might also get a hint of florals as the middle notes include lily-of-the-valley, rose, orchid, and freesia. The base notes are mimosa, magnolia, amber, musk, and lily.

Longevity of smell

This is probably one of the most impressive perfumes concerning sillage and longevity. Since it is an EDP and not an EDT (Eau De Toilette) which means it is much more intense. This also enhances its long-lasting effect and thus, should be used moderately. Overdose will give you a headache.

Bottle design

The bottle has a very simplistic and aesthetic design. It is a glass cylinder with a spraying mechanism. The automizer helps to spread the spray evenly over any surface. The product is available in 0.14 and 1 ounces bottles, as well as 1.7, and 3.4 fl oz.


The fragrance has vibrant and bright notes of grapefruit and bergamot as well as soft and sensual mimosa which works in harmony to create a scent that will be loved by most women. It is most perfect for younger and middle-aged women.

Final verdict

It is an all-occasion scent that truly helps to cheer a person up, and hence helps to make you confident. It is dominant with orange, apples, lilies, orchids, and musk which mix and make the perfect floral, fresh, and sweet fragrance.
