Introducing Happy Paul: A New Self-Care and Wellness Brand that Supports Men’s Mental Health

A unique and mood lifting fragrance that wants to put a smile on your face. 

75% of suicide deaths are male (ONS, 2020) – it has never been more important to support mental health, especially with men. 

Happy Paul has one mission – to support mental health with self-care and a smile. How? With the launch of an array of self-care products for men that are infused with an award-winning fragrance, Bright Spice. The fragrance aims to trigger a little happy from the outside in with an array of notes: 

  • Top notes: Bergamot, Spearmint, Lemon, Eucalyptus, Pink Peppercorn, Cinnamon Bark. 
  • Middle notes: Frankincense, Petitgrain, Rosemary, Jasmine. 
  • Base notes: Cedarwood, Vetivert, Sandalwood, Musk. 

From an Eau De Parfum and Roll-on Fragrance Oil to Body and Hair Wash, Cleanser, Scrub and Moisturiser, this collection exists to lift one’s mood and encourage a little bit of effortless, everyday self-care. 

Happy Paul was conceived by a not-so-happy Paul (Founder, Paul Gerrard), a lifelong sufferer of depression, and who has spent much of his life looking for happy in all the wrong places. Happy Paul aims to change an ‘all or nothing’ approach to wellness by creating products that encourage simple, rewarding acts of self-care. 

“For me, a smile is the most basic and yet dynamic form of self-care. It is restorative, transformative, and completely contagious.” says Founder, Paul Gerrard. “I set out to create a mood lifting fragrance. That made me feel happy. I hope it makes you feel happy too.” 

A percentage of profits from each sale goes to mental health charity – Young Minds is the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health and has a core focus on self-care. 

Happy Paul products are vegan and only tested on human folk. Happy Paul will always intend on doing what’s best for you and your world. 

Let’s put a smile on some faces. 

Happy Paul products are available through selected salon and spas and online at
