Curve is more versatile. You can wear it any time of day, any time of year. London is excellent, but it's nowhere near as versatile. Would I recommend it? SURE! ...if you smell it and you like it.
Trust me when I say not to look for someone to say "Buy this one! It's the answer." Sure, many will say that. Hell, *I* might even stupidly say that. But the truth is, if you find something you like and feel confident wearing, you'll have found your answer. Just about every person on this forum is looking for his or her holy grail scent. The search for "it" is half the fun! Aaaaaaaand it's the reason our credit card companies love us (though I pay that balance off every month because I'll be damned if I'm handing them free cash in interest!!!)
Part of the reason I recommend Curve is that it's so cheap and gets so many compliments, which means it's a fine place to begin.
Like I said above, if I were you, I'd come up with around $75 to $100 to buy a starting trio.
- Something super versatile. Curve fits the bill.
- Something great for hot weather. PE 360 Red, or Nautica Voyage. Cool Water or Chrome.
- Something darker or gourmand for winter nights. Bvlgari Black maybe. Michael Jordan Legend or Animale Animale.
A trio like that would have you easily set up for ages, and it would cost you under $100. Curve, PE Red and Bv Black could be had for as little as $65 total. Curve, PE Red and MJ Legend for as little as $50!

I agree 100% with mesa. As a brand name, Curve had a reputation as a teen product, but that's due to the poor job of marketing by Claiborne rather than being due to the actual smell. These days, I think it's been mostly forgotten as things like Bleu, Guilty, A-Men and 1 Million are all the rage.
Curve has gotten me compliments from women in their 20s, 30s and even 40s. And not once have I ever had anyone guess I was wearing Curve, though a few were really surprised when I told them what it was.
