Nothing but grapefruit
by Leigh on Jul 7, 2017
I can't smell anything except grapefruit in this perfume -- and I hate grapefruit. It's too acidic, too sharp, and extremely unfeminine. Reminds me of scary nuns who hit little kids with rulers -- they seem "happy" to do so.
One of my favorites!

This was my first purchase of perfume at a department store ever. My friend Josie had me tag along when she went to Dillards in 1996 to get her free sample kits of Clinique products.. since she already had a bottle of Happy at home she gave me her sample from the kit. It was love at first sniff! Its light and citrusy and makes you think of spring and summer. I keep a bottle at home since then, when I'm out I also repurchase. This site is wonderful for trying out new scents and even some you want to give away for your friends or family to try.. or maybe even travel with since you can get a smaller size.
Clean crisp scent

The top floral notes are refreshing
The Mother of all Fresh Florals?
by lls on May 19, 2017
If you like fresh florals like Tory Burch or Bottega Veneta Knot, you'll probably like this ancestor as well.

I owned a bottle of this once. Like most citrus fragrances, especially those having orange notes, this does promote a cheerful attitude. I liked it, but it tended to give me a headache. Therefore, I didn't repurchase. Sometimes, happiness just isn't worth the headache.
Can increase the mood

Citrus always brings a smile to me, this sweet, but refreshing. No doubt it's going stay in my collection.
Fresh and Lovely
by Janet on May 16, 2017
This fragrance is still around for a reason. It smells fresh and lovely. Although it is not particularly unique, it is still a great smelling everyday fragrance for spring and summer.
A Happy Scent

A simple, fresh, and happy scent with intensive citrus. I like it
by Lyndell on Feb 20, 2017
This was Elle Woods signature in the movie Legally Blonde. So fresh so cheerful.
Makes me happy...
by Mary Carole on Feb 17, 2017
Happy is a soft, fresh, citrus floral that simply makes me happy. It's a safe scent that is not overbearing and last a good amount of time.
by anna on Feb 17, 2017
I wrote a review earlier for the wrong product. So here it is on the Clinique. It was o.k. but not my favorite. Its too strong and really smells like a cheaper perfume. Reminds me of 70s perfume. But if you like strong this is for you.
by Denette on Feb 15, 2017
Happy is just as its name implies...Happy! I really want to love this fragrance, but, on me, it just doesn't work, but I still gave it high stars because I want to love it! It smells so wonderful on other people, but there is something about my skin chemistry that makes it turn sour. I do keep a small tester around so I can sniff every once in a while, but I rarely wear it. It is perfect for spring and summer months!
by Lisa on Jan 8, 2017
I love this perfume. It is so soft and such a gentle scent. Not overbearing and strong.
A blast from the past
by Stephanie on Dec 14, 2016
This is a nice scent, easy to wear and versatile. This was very popular in the 90s and I wore it then, because there weren't many other choices if you just wanted to smell fresh and unobtrusive. I have personally moved on from this scent - I've given it to my teenage daughter, who it's perfect for. This would be good for someone just looking for something nice for daily wear, but I have to say there are lots of other scents out there these days that fit that bill and are more interesting and sophisticated.
by Jaclyn on Dec 8, 2016
The orange colour is perfect for it's scent, it is a soft, refreshing, manderine scent <3
Exactly what I have been waiting for!
by Kimberly on Nov 18, 2016
Love this Clinique Happy, found it in Macy's for the first time about a year ago and just got me some in the mail from My Perfume Samples! This is one of my all time favorites, it my go to for when I have a really early morning. It wakes you up and gives you an uplifting push. It has alot of fragrance notes with the orange/grapefruit shining through the most. Will definitely be getting a full size bottle of this soon!
by Dianna on Nov 11, 2016
I love the clean smell of this perfume. It makes a great summertime perfume.
by Kari on Oct 10, 2016
They got the name right for this perfume. It makes me feel happy when I wear it. It has light floral and citrus notes. It smells like warm sunshine in a bottle.
not for me
by Shania on Jun 24, 2016
heard a lot about it but didnt really like it
Lovely fresh mandarin
by Cindy on Jun 10, 2016
This has no musk, it is just a clean, clear mandarin. Be careful though if you purchase a whole bottle, because it turns very quickly and starts smelling like overripe mandarin. If you use it often though, you can go though a full bottle without it turning. Very nice citrus perfume, one of the best for citrus.
by michelle on Jun 7, 2016
A pleasant citrusy floral perfume. Nice.
by Alishia on Apr 23, 2016
I wore this a lomng time ago and I decided to try it again. It seems a little more orangy than oi remember and I guess it smells more synthetic on my skom .
Too much orange
by Alishia on Apr 21, 2016
If they would have held back on the citrus smell this would have nbeen perfect. It didn't seem to last as long as it does on my friend. I guess my skin just doesn't react well with this one.
by Rose on Jan 21, 2016
This perfume really divides opinion - between those who (like me) find it harsh, almost like lemon scented oven cleaner, and those who are exhiliarated and uplifted by its fresh citric fruitiness and clean musk.
It reminds me a bit of Zest soap, almost like a deodorant spray, it's more sophisticated than that mind you, and feels elegant in its way. If you like this you probably like Tommy Girl by Hilfiger, perfumes that make me think of bright, capable young women with nice teeth, but who have a slightly steely edge
by Jennifer on Dec 29, 2015
Ideal for a day at the office or a brunch with the girls. Soft gentle uplifting fragrance
too sweet for me
by Amanda on Aug 27, 2015
I felt the white flower notes to be a bit strong, but had a soapy dry-down, which was more appreciated. A little acrid on me, but may work for others!
by Nazia on Feb 28, 2015
Not a particularly exciting fragrance, but I still like it. It puts a smile on my face. One thing I do like is that I find it almost a bit spicy, not just fresh citrus. And it has good sillage :)
by Amanda on Feb 19, 2015
the first fragrance I ever got "addicted" to ... it still makes me happy. synthetic, yes. But also classic, floral and fresh.
by Ashley on Dec 30, 2014
I have used Clinque Happy for about less than a year. I liked it at first and as time went on it started to get an acrid smell to it, and then I was introduced to Happy Be, and I have to say that is so much better. I can't believe I've been missing it this whole time, I'm hoping this site will get samples now!
by Emily on Dec 28, 2014
Everyone was wearing this when I was a teenager! Including myself. It probably wouldn't suit me anymore but at the time I loved it for its super fresh citrus smell. It rode high on the clean wave that swept perfumery in the 90's.
Clean & Happy
by stacy on Dec 23, 2014
I got a little 1\2 ml vial from a perfume shopp, I really liked it. Here on this site their only asking $2.00 4 a full 1ml vial. Good going my perfume samples. You beat the price of my other perfumers shopping. And common people only 3 stars?
by Tinamarie on Sep 14, 2014
Tried many times but just couldn't acquire a taste for it. Too orange.
I like this one !!!
by Adrienne on May 27, 2014
I like this one nice and fresh.
I like this one !!!
by Adrienne on May 27, 2014
I enjoy this one on my skin.
smell on your skin, not the bottle
by Dan on Mar 23, 2014
Didn't like it out of the bottle, but smells fantastic on my wife's skin!
Perfect name for this little gem
by Li on Mar 2, 2014
I remember the first time I smelled it; I was in the elevator with a woman at work and I had to ask what she was wearing! It's heavy (yet not "weighty") on the citrus and gives that emotional boost that aromatherapists talk so much about. Proper name for a great fragrance.
by Jeney on Jan 10, 2014
Very sharp- almost acrid. I've tried liking this a few times, because hey, I like being happy. And the description is full of smells that I like. But I washed it off after an hour, because I reeked
by Nicole on Dec 18, 2013
This perfume smells like the color orange; very fruity and a bit floral. It's lasting power is medium.
Doesn't smell good on me
by Ashley on Nov 11, 2013
but it does smell good on my sister.... try it before you buy it.
