Surprised that this fragrance is so poorly received. Right out of the bottle there were two impressions; lime and fresh soap.
It is the lightest and cleanest lime I have experienced in any lime-scented frags. All other lime-based fragrances I have used pair the lime with musk; Wave doesn't. Wave combines a very bright and robust lime with a soft aquatic breeze accord made up very soft touches of juniper, mint, and anise. The shape of the scent is linear, staying the same throughout the life of the scent. It is not long-lasting, but it is casual, pleasing, and unassuming. There is some passing similarity to L'Eau de Issey in the breezy construction, but Issey's lemon and yuzu make it too sharp for me.
I'm going to have to give this a thumbs down. First, There are already too many aquatic scents out there, and much like those other aquatic scents, This one shares the same lemony watery accord as well. Nothing anywhere near original about this scent. And most certainly, there is nothing about this scent that is memorable, but rather forgettable.
This scent demands a complete do over with a new name.
Another boring fruity aquatic. Smells pretty similar to Sean John Unforgivable, but with some sweeter citrus notes in the opening.
an unnecessary and bland curve disaster that is probably goin to be discontinued
definately a waste of money to put on these concoctions they have absolutely nothing the slightest bit appealing and they smell like there tryin to be somethin they are not and this stuff is so bad it makes axe look like gucci
definately very synthetic and annoying, this is the FIRST cologne the lady at the scent counter told me to avoid

Harsh chemicals mixed with grapefruit and masquerading as a cologne. (And just what the hell IS "liquid oxygen scent," anyway?)
In other words, Curve Wave is definitive proof that you can probably market even cat piss so long as you put it in a "cool" bottle and make it affordable for the masses.
i like this better than getting hit in the mouth with a golf club... that being said it's not really all that impressive. there is a bit of poorly done mint mixed with grapefruit and orange over a microscopic amount of berry... it is absolutely linear, as the progression is so static i can see why there is no base in the pyramid... it isn't cloyingly sweet or disgusting, and i can't detect the signature curve boring je ne sais quoi, but it won't knock your socks off... a safe scent for a safe teenager in a safe town in a safe country that wants to smell "dangerous"
