I was feeling kind of cheesy about using Happy by Clinique as my Fresh Friday scent this week, but once I spritzed a little on, I was reminded why this perfume is so popular — it’s refreshing!
As described by Clinque, “A hint of citrus. A wealth of flowers. A mix of emotions. Our best-selling women’s fragrance interplays fresh, vibrant notes-ruby red grapefruit, bergamot-with soft, sensual ones-Hawaiian wedding flower, spring mimosa. Wear it and be happy.”
And as said by Fragrantica, “Clinique Happy is a fragrance of joy, the essence of a sunny, happy morning. Wear Happy and be happy! Fresh apple, plums and bergamot mixed with the fresh-air accord as top notes proceed into the egzotic floral heart composed of freesia, lily, rose and morning orchid. Musk and amber are in perfume’s base. It was created in 1997. Happy was created by Jean Claude Delville and Rodrigo Flores-Roux. It received a 1998 FiFi award.”
Not only is Happy Clinique’s best-selling fragrance, it’s a top seller in several beauty and fragrance stores. A big plus, for me anyway, is that one spray is enough, and it lasts the whole day.
As I was doing my research, I was reminded that everyone’s favorite lawyer, Elle Woods, sprays a little Clinique Happy on her wrist in the beginning of the movie. BEND… and SNAP!
I’ve never really understood why women go to such lengths to change up their beauty routines when winter rolls around — until now. And yes, I know winter proper isn’t here yet, but it’s getting colder out and in turn, my lips are chapped.
Earlier this summer, I never left the house without my cute houndstooth tube of Carmex Moisture Plus, and now, Carmex has added two tinted versions of their Moisture Plus balm: Peach and Pink.
I purchased the “Sheer Peach Tint” version a few weeks ago as an add-on item to an Amazon order. While the packaging shows a typical peach color on the label, the actual balm is more red, like the center of a peach.
This translates well on the lip, meaning mega-color. Plus the moisture — this might be the perfect balm for winter!
Carmex Moisture Plus is made with Vitamin E, Aloe, Shea Butter, and features SPF 15 (bonus!). And did you know? Carmex doesn’t test on animals.
I really love this balm and the color it provides. It’s enough to be noticed, but not over-the-top. Wear it alone, or add some clear gloss on top for an extra pop!
I was totally going to choose a classic scent (such as Clinique Happy) for today’s Fresh Friday, but I reached into my perfume goodie bag and this is what I came up with. I wore it to the office yesterday, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this feminine scent!
As described by Macy’s: Lady Million by Paco Rabanne is the feminine alter ego of the 1 Million men’s brand. A stunning, fresh, woody-floral fragrance that is glamourous, elegant, and audacious. Top Notes of Neroli and Raspberry, a heart of Orange Flower Absolute, Jasmine Sambac Absolute, and a dry down of Patchouli and Honey make Lady Million a shimmering, opulant, sensual fragrance.
Other notes in Lady Million include Amalfi Lemon, Gardenia, and Amber.
As described by Fragrance X: Lady Million Perfume by Paco Rabanne, You may not have the cash, but you can still smell like a million dollars . This is a floral for women that dazzles and seduces. Top notes of bitter orange, raspberry, neroli and orange blossom are followed by a heart of bewitching arabian jasmine and gardenia. The base notes of patchouli, honey and amber complete this tantalizing composition. The flacon is as faceted as the most precious of jewels.
The only thing I question about Lady Million is its longevity — might not last all day, but would be perfect for a night out!
