Clinique Happy for Men is an incredibly crisp, vivid, and bright citrus scent with green, dewy undertones leading to the caramelly warmth of guaiac wood and cedar in the base.
The opening is scintillating to say the least. A shining burst of tangy lime, and bright kalamanzi fruit create a knockout combination of mouth-puckering citrus, with the sour edge replaced by the sweet so
Clinique Clinique Happy for Men rating and reviews
I effing love this stuff. It’s true what the reviews say: It doesn’t last long enough (but frankly it’s cheap enough to reapply often). Top notes are all sweet citrus (delicious) but at the end of the day you’ll go to the gym and after a few reps you’ll start to smell this amazing musky, woody scent floating up from your chest. Frag heads call it synthetic, but I don’t get that/care. That blows off right away, leaving a complex, close-to-the skin scent. Taking away one star for the short longevity (does that even make sense?).
I’m not very experienced in writing about the few colognes I’ve ever tried, but I’d say this one is good for everyday wear. Light and casual, it’s a good one for you and anybody that comes into contact with you at the office, in a store, or just hanging out at home.
I hate this cologne. It’s too powdery for my liking. Used it for maybe a week but then decided I couldn’t stand it any longer. I also only use 2 sprays at a time so it’s not like I’m overdoing it by any means. I can’t imagine why it gets good reviews.
The citrus base of this scent sets the tone for an instant mood lifter; it literally smells happy. Even though it is obviously citrus, it's not overpowering or "in your face. "It wears well for a long time. One of my favorite colognes.
Refreshing and Invigorating, then subtle and seductive
This product starts out very bold and citrus. For me, it picks up my mood. After the high notes have settled, the cologne settles into a very mellow tone. I've had many people stop and ask me what this scent i'm wearing is. My only complaint is the longevity of the scent. After about 4 to 5 hours, this cologne's scent is gone from me and i have to reapply it.
I really enjoyed this fragrance. It's very clean and fresh smelling. It has the right amount of citrus and I have received a lot of compliments on this scent. I primarily use this as an everyday scent, but would be appropriate for date night or going out to a club. I did notice that the scent doesn't last a long time, usually after 4 hours I can't smell it anymore.
Now the initial smell is very alcohol like which blocks out most of the fragrance but as soon as you allow it breathe a clean citrus smell is apparent with a light sweetness. Very easy to wear for cook outs and such.
I was surprised i couldn't find a review of a comparison between this and Versace. When i sprayed it i immediately thought of Versace. I ordered Versace prior to Clinique and thought it smelled great, but now i have two colognes that smell the same. Clinique lasts less though. I'm a bit disappointed but oh well. If i didn't know of Versace i would have given this a 5 out of 5 but since it's not a unique scent i gave it a 3.
Love the smell at first, so clean and fresh smelling, however I can’t seem to smell it on my skin after half hour. Not sure if it’s just too weak, or just not right for my body chemistry. Shame, cuz it smells amazing.
Really enjoy the scent of this cologne. I'm not the type to take a bath with cologne, so it doesn't seem to last very long. After day 1 of wearing it, I received numerous compliments.. I would keep it in my collection..
If the bottle of this cologne is any indication of what it smells like then the designers captured this fragrance spot on. Happy for Men by Clinique is one of my favorite colognes to wear for myself. It's bright, very citrusy, and in my experience it lasts all day long with just 2 sprays. This is a great every day, casual cologne to wear for just about any occasion. It's also great at the office. This is definitely a great compliment-grabbing cologne that you'll love.
I'm very fussy about scents. This really isn't bad but there's nothing unique or special about it. It's very light and doesn't last a long time. Definitely sweet, not a woodsy/smokey scent that I typically favor. What can I say, scent is very personal. This just isn't one for me. I'd say it's a very 'safe' scent. No one will stay away from you because of it.
I am very picky with most things and I was pleasantly surprised when I got this one. The scent is not too strong but strong enough to notice and when you get a whiff here and there it's a reminder that I smell great. Girlfriend loves it too.
I love this for women as well. It’s a good thing I have already tried this because I still haven’t gotten my December scent. Plus I bought two cases back in late November and early December and still haven’t gotten them. Eager to take my money but slow on getting me my products. I will give them one more mo.
Fifth scent. The bright bottle caught my eye. After looking at the info, I decided to try it just on the fact that it was the first unisex cologne I'd come across and would be the first I ever tried. It's by far my favorite cologne I've received from Scentbird. It's light and doesn't last very long which are the only downsides in my opinion. It's right on the border of cologne and perfume in my opinion. The scent is a little floral, but still sporty, fresh, and clean to keep it masculine as well. I will be trying more unisex colognes as well as clean and sporty scents, which I tend to steer clear from. Definitely recommend this one.
This is a great fragrance. It's fresh, citrusy, and masculine. The reactions to this scent are always positive and it never disappoints. My only problem with this is that you almost need to bathe in it to have any type of longevity and projection from this cologne. Other than that I recommend buying the bottle (very safe buy) because you are going to use a lot of it and the scent bird vile is just not enough. Only purchase and wear during the summer time.
This is an AMAZING scent!!! I am the only male in my office and all the women I work with constantly tell me how much they love with scent. The only thing that I don't like is that this scent fades away pretty quickly but I will definitely buy it again.
I absolutely love this fragrance. The citrus notes stand out for me. Then a woodsy type. This is #2 of my top 5 fragrances. Scent will last 4-5 hrs for me. Although my shirts tend to hold fragrance after a wash.
I really enjoy this scent. It's very clean, sweet smell, but masculine. How you use it determines how long it lasts. Spraying directly on the skin, I noticed lasts longer on me. This is definently a cologne I can wear on date night, as its not overly strong but she can smell it when shes inches away.
Fresh and clean. Doesn't last long at all. Probably great for date night. Impossible to over spray. Will not hide cigarette smoke, although it mixed well with it. Overall, a delightful, yes i did write delightful, scent. I just need a stronger scent. A little metrosexual for my taste.
An amazing, amazing scent PERFECT for summer, however the lasting power of it is laughable at best. After an hour it becomes a skin scent and at the three hour mark its completely gone. Very disappointed with the juice, yet absolutely enamored with the scent.
Do not be fooled by the pictures of citrus, the cheery orange bottle or even the name. You would think that this fragrance would be light, fresh and summery, wrong. The fragrance is deep, rich and autumnal. Too heavy for summer and too strong a scent for myself, a non hairy preppy Anglo Saxon. I was hoping that this sent would be like an American version of Hermes, D' orange vert. Very disappointed.
My husband and I both love this scent. It is very fresh and not super strong, It is perfect if you want that just showered scent. I find this scent to last for long time, my husband can spray it on at am and I can still smell it on him at pm.. I will be getting this again for him.
It was ok. No one seemed to notice the new cologne in comparison to the first one I received. It's light and just an 'ok' scent. prob something I will wear to work where I don't need a strong, showy scent.
I've been a member of ScentBird only 3 months and Clinique Happy for Men is BY FAR THE BEST fragrance purchase!!! For anyone who considers themselves a "CITRUS", this fragrance is a MUST HAVE!!! Wears well throughout the entire day too. One of those where you don't mind wearing the same shirt two days in a row! ;-)
