hail to the power of the influencer!

Be the Happy One...everyday!

Doesn't it just make you feel good being able to influence and making an impact of others? It comes in many ways, like motivating your little sister to get better grades for a better future or getting your mum to take up yoga for health improvement. Me? Well, I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or not, but I influence people to SPEND their money to feel good hahaha! *Angelic smile*

Since I discovered this cologne for men by accident during mega sales in Mid Valley shopping mall years ago, It was like discovering the ultimate treasure of the King of Scents for guys (seriously!) Without much persuasion by the salesgirl, I got myself the promo set in a flash (yeah, even if it was for guys). Luckily, I didn't use it and when my bf materialized (now ex), I was promoting all out for him to use the ever lovable Clinique Happy (He's been using it the whole time when we were still together and never used another brand).

I gushed all about it to my college friend too, who was a loyal user of Dunhill. Then, one day, I dropped by at his apartment to get some notes and guess what? I got a glimpse of the familiar orange bottle on a book rack in his room. I was like, 'You got the cologne!!! Like I told you to!!' And my friend just gave me a little smile. Guys, I think they are a bit shy to let the world know that girls can influence them to buy things that they wouldn't normally buy.

And it doesn't stop there! My current man is also on the Clinique craze (He used to be a Davidoff fan) and will religiously get a new bottle whenever the old one runs out of supply. Lemme let u in a li'l secret, last Valentine's apparently a secret admirer gave him Polo Black and what did he do with it? Gave it to his friend! I mean, that's not cheap, man. Even if somebody gave me a perfume for a gift, I will still use it (I can't stand Tommy Hilfiger Jeans though, it was so dizzying I gave it to my aunt - even though it was a gift).

And lastly, a friend of mine (whom I just met) got himself the promotion set after I described to him the heavenly smell from the orange bottle - and he didn't even had a whiff of it before that! Being a fan of big names like Hugo Boss and Paco Rabbane, I think it's pretty amazing for him to just purchase Clinique without even sampling the scent. Now that's what I call super influencing power hehehe

Why don't u try it too? Like what my friend said, and I quote: 'Now I'm Happy everyday!'

Doesn't make sense? Get that orange bottle today and you'll see why :)
