    Default Happy for men vs Concentree d'Orange Verte

    I think both have pathetic longevity. But, which one lasts longer? In my opinion both have equally bad longevity..about 1-2 hours on my skin, maybe double of that on clothing

    Concentree is one of my summer scents, and if applied liberally, can last quite some time, on one occasion it was even there the next day. I would have expected Happy to last longer, though, because it's not a orange-heavy as Concentree. I haven't made that comparison myself yet, because I don't really like Happy. Citrus notes are rather fleeting. Try again using more? It really is a warm weather fragrance, so it doesn't make that much sense to try it in colder environments.

    Concentree d'Orange Verte lasts longer than Happy - for sure!

    Happy is one of my very favorite colognes. When I wear it, I'm very liberal w/ my sprays...about 10-15. It's pretty strong, then!

    I like the Hermes sooo much better than Clinique. The Hermes has a depth that Clinique doesn't. It also has the herbal notes (basil or rosemary?) which gives it smoothness. Happy seems one dimentional and flat.

    Flat? Are we talking about the same Happy? The scent seems really "sparkley" on my skin. One dimensional, I'll give you. It really doesn't seem to change much.

    Hey, everyone! Forget about these two and get yourselves a bottle of Diptyque's Oyedo. It may be a little sweet for some but I prefer this more than any orangey scent currently on the market.

    The good thing (IMO) about Happy is that the citrus smell doesn't go away, while the Hermes changes to more woody notes after a few hours.
