Liz Claiborne Curve Cologne Spray, 4.2 oz
About this deal
I'll probably never get tired of it and though I don't wear it as much as I used to (not even close), I still reach for it from time to time during spring and summer. The transition from the opening to the dry-down is relatively linear, the opening notes continue into the dry-down enhanced by the various notes included in this fragrance. I've gone through at least 5 bottles of this and the performance isn't anything like what it used to be. The first time I wore it around her she was walking past me and stopped dead in her tracks as if she slammed in to an invisible wall. While the fragrances before it played with an orchestra of notes before getting to the heavenly 'aquatic' base (large doses of 'calone' and 'dihydromyrcenol'), Curve opened up 'fruity-salty-aquatic' and stayed true to the trend till its base notes.
I know it's everyone's first cologne in high school or college, but I'm in my 30s and it's still wearable for my age. My wife knows me for this scent so I'm trying to find something that is similar to this but more refined. The first aromatic-aquatic appeared in 1991, making this signature a relative newcomer to the fragrance world. UPDATE: I thought this smell was familiar, and now I realize it's similar to Bora Bora for Men (also by Liz Claiborne), except the kiwi has been replaced by pineapple.
I know it's old and that's all I've been getting from my friends from the states but it's amazing for a few reasons: it IS synthetic, but it's unlike any recent scent put out, that makes it very unique.

Thirdly you can get away with wearing curve and not smell like anyone or generic due to the fact that curve has no ambroxan note.
