Burt’s Bees Naturally Happy Solid Perfume Always Puts a Smile on My Face

I like the idea of being able to bring along some extra happiness with me wherever I go, and that’s what I hoped for from Burt’s Bees Naturally Happy Solid Perfume ($10).

I’ve been toting the tiny tin around with me everywhere, pulling it out of my purse whenever I’ve needed a quick pick-me-up or a change in my mood. I rub it into my pulse points (on both sides of my neck, the insides of my elbows and on both wrists), and let the woody citrus scent propel me on my merry way.

And ya know, I think it has put an extra spring in my step. Made from a mix of natural oils, waxes and shea butter, it came out earlier this fall with three other travel-friendly solids from Burt — Naturally Beautiful, Naturally Fresh and Naturally Sensual.

Burt lists Naturally Happy’s official fragrance notes as Brazilian orange, Argentinian lemon, Florida grapefruit, raspberry, rose and cedarwood…but I’d characterize it more as a faintly spicy grapefruit.

It’s a very subtle scent, coy and mellow, and doesn’t hit you with a major burst of citrus. It also only lasts about two hours on my skin.

Oh, and because it’s from Burt, it’s cruelty-free and, thus, 100% Tabs approved. :)

    I love citrus scents, even in the dead of winter! The packaging for this solid perfume is sooo pretty; don’t you think robin’s egg blue and chocolate brown make the most marvelous color combo?

      Hi Crystal,

      I do… they were my wedding colors. :)

      How’s your day going? I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner, eek!

      • Crystal says:

        Oh how wonderful! I’m sure your wedding must have looked fantastic, visually in the least.
        I’m super excited for Christmas; it’s only three days away! Time to enjoy delicious treats like homemade Pecan pie…

    Cute little tin! The scent sounds like something I’m into lately. I never went for spicy scents before. What my nose likes now seems to have changed through the years.
    Those colours must have been fabulous wedding pics!

    I will have to search for this! In the last picture, the surface of the perfume looks like it has bubbles on it? Is it just me?

    BTW, what are your plans for Christmas, Karen? I’m headed to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas on the the 25th.

    I didn’t know they also have solid perfume! I do have their cuticle cream, and I love it. I may need to try this one out!
