It is like asking: Out of these three cars; Rolls Royce, Maserati and Kia, which is the preferred choice?
I worked for Clinique (few years back) briefly and every time a guy sprayed Happy, well, I would die inside just a little. I would also fantasize about smelling Eau Sauvage instead.
Please find a third contender worthy of the battle.
Brielle, as a preface, let me add that my this reply is NOT
an attack and also is NOT
intended as a flame/flamebait.. and as I type this I address the others too who've posted concerning "classics" in reference to the 3 scents the OP has named above.
Firstly, I don't see where the OP has classified the Clinique Happy as a "classic"? He said of the 3 he listed, 2 are classics and i'm going to assume he means the CPM and Eau Sauvage, rightfully so at that.
Secondly, just one read of the OP's post makes it perfectly clear that he isn't comparing/classifying those 3 scents on a "classic" scale, but on a scale of longevity/projection... which also means that any (and I mean ANY) scent(s) could be included in that sort of a comparison. I could compare a Lutens, a Profumum and a CK scent in terms of longevity/sillage but apparently (and commonsensically) it's abundantly comprehensible that it's not
the brand/brand definition or category(drugstore/designer/niche)/quality of ingredients et al i'm comparing... but i'm comparing the sillage/projection ONLY
. For Example :
A bargain bin scent like Bogart PH can give me longevity/projection in a vastly greater measure than Profumum Fiori d'Ambra can.. but that doesn't mean i'm classifying Bogart PH to be in the same league as Profumum.
Thirdly, I sincerely believe no-one (NO-ONE) should dictate whatsoever, what scent the other should wear, not in real life.. much less on a discussion board. The OP came here asking for opinions, not advice on what is a classic and what's not... if he has correctly classified the CPM and ES as "classics" then he already knows the deal.
Lastly, whatever happened to just answering the OP's question? We should correct him in places where he's wrong, but he isn't wrong ...and all the "mentoring" isn't needed. It's what I call unnecessary complication of simple matters.
I must reiterate, this isn't meant to be an attack on anyone or a flame.
