What: Clinique Happy, $26.50
Why: Clinique’s Happy has always been a go-to scent for me. As one of the very first perfumes I owned, it’s one that I always keep on hand for those moments of panic when I realize I hate my latest fragrance find. And now, the classic fragrance has served as the inspiration for much more than simply smelling good.
Clinique sponsored the Glamour Reel Moments program, a series of three short films based on real life stories written by Glamour readers. One year ago, readers were asked to submit a personal essay about a time when they felt empowered, wiser and happy. The thousands of submissions were narrowed down to a small selection of very different stories that shared one common theme: happiness. Going a step further for female empowerment, these films mark the directorial debuts of talented leading ladies, Rita Wilson, Kirsten Dunst, and Kate Hudson. Check out the films here.
You may not have a date with Hollywood glitterati in your future, but you can at least get yourself a bottle of Clinique Happy and see what it inspires in you.
