Hate it. Smells like licorice, black pepper, and rust to me. Really makes me gag when I smell it.

On my skin, this doesn't smell aquatic in the slightest. For me, it dries down to a soft lilac floral and more licorice/anise than sandalwood. Interesting.

This is the strangest scent!! I can't even decide what notes I'm smelling, lol! Ahhh why does it confound me so? =/

*pouts*

Well easy first impression is: yes it smells metallic! Somehow it just... gives that impression.Salty, that's what it is. Something makes it seem salty + aquatic which lends it a metallic feel somehow.Gimme a bit; maybe I can tell you more exactly what kind of metal I mean. (BRB, sprays more, lets it sit...)

Rust. That's a bit what it smells like that's reminding me of metal but it's more like... salty and GREEN.

*gasp!* CELERY!! It smells like celery. Yes, that's it. The deeply green kind you get that's very dense in watery saltiness, as when you buy organic or just the young sprouted celery in a deep green color! That, is what this is on my skin. With some other things mingling w/ it but I still can't place the other things.

Very unusual. Not something I will wear. I keep seeing reviews calling this a 'lovely, uplifting floral bouquet!' so I do wonder if it's chemistry-based. Too funny.

I was given this perfume as a gift. It's fortunate that I didn't spend my own money on it, because it's quite possibly the worst perfume I have ever had the misfortune of smelling. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but to me it's very gross- it smells very chemical and a little metallic to me. I tried it more than once and waited quite a while before scrubbing it off to see if the scent would change on my skin much, but it only got worse (though thankfully less intense) as time went on.

Why did they discontinued this?!...Happy To Be is by far my favorite version among the Happy line. It's very fresh, uplifting, bright... perfect for summer and those carefree days at the beach!...I received many compliments when I wore this. I wish they bring it back!!...

Attention to all lover of aquatic scents. This is a great perfume for the hot summer days. It is long lasting and well formulated. I would say this IS more floral aquatic, yet the pear is quite prominent in the first hour. After a few hours, i can still smell the aquatic notes, combining with a soft spice floral creating a pleasant smell. It is rather a light pear flavor watery spicy floral scent. I recommend if you are an aquatic lover.

I hate this, I sprayed once and vowed to never wear it again. I was given a small bottle of this and, I agree with one review below, it does smell a bit like rust. It's very strong, I had to wash my wrists after putting this on.

This is my favorite from the Clinique line. It is the perfect tropical fragrance for me. The hibiscus really came out on my skin, along with coconut rather than cacao. Seems like it is a love it or hate it. I love it- received tons of compliments, it had significant longevity! Wish they would release it again...

I like all the Happy family. This one is softer than the regular Happy. My husband bought a full size for me after I had my second daughter and I loved it so much I used it all up. Plus it has beautiful memories for me! I also like the Happy Heart. To me that one is brighter, more fizzy. I would like to get it sometime.

i expeced soooo much more for THIS PRICE man.... thanks god i bought it on ebay for 15 euros and not a new one for 60 or 70 euros, its so unspecial and boring, hibiscus, rose and fruits, smells a bit like a fresh orangejuice... the staying power is not good on me, it is a sporty, fresh, spring and summer scent, but believe me, sooo ordinary that i think there are so much more scents for 15 or 20% of this HORRIBLE PRICE who smell WAY BETTER and STAY WAY LONGER...
(i sold it again on ebay after wearing it once, and i got more money for it than i bought it for, maybe because other trust clinique as a label too much too - thank u happy, for the few extra euros;))

The aroma of cacao is so dominant that I hardly felt any other scented note... the great aromatherapy! Hibiscus is weak in contact with the powerful aroma of cacao. Must be applied immediately after showering, just on a very clean skin, then the most convincing. It seems to me that this is a scent that evokes a good mood. Perhaps it's more for the younger population, but certainly for all those who worship the smell of cacao.I am one of them, and I love the smell of hot chocolate, gourmet and quite unique.

I 've tested it in the mall looking for new scent which is difference in any occasion somehow..>.< but oh O! the starter is all the same style by regular clinique'n heart version citrussy & pitchy floral with a hint of cooling breeze but middle and drydown it seems nothing quite rotten or stale cuz of the cocao note I think its losts their charactor.

I had high expectations for happy to be. I thought it would be some nice flower scent with nice woodsy undertones.

Anyway, the wood in it, is very "dirty" on my skin.Didn't remind me of sandalwood at all... It also seemed to overpower every other note. I washed it off almost immediately!

I find it similar to L'Eau par Kenzo.
Maybe because they have Lilac in common.
Both are delicate, transparent and very characteristic.
