    Default Old favorite Curve for men... Present scent favorite

    New member here. I used Curve for men for the Longest time since High School I am now 28 and engaged. I remember using Curve and getting alot of compliments of HS girls and even in college.

    I am now looking for a new signature scent but there is so many to choose from. Ordered GIT but Imperial is amazing as well.

    I would like to know what you Curve for men fans in the past are wearing now.

    I don't know. Seems like I just got tired of it, just got old and noticed too many people wearing it. Have not really smelled alot of GIT or MI around but then again I can't really use alot of cologne in my field (healthcare) due to allergies.

    Still thinking on what the best option is. The Flacon I received from Nordstroms had alot of leakage and was older (made in 2009). MI smells amazing but it does not last as long as GIT.

    I think I will always have a soft spot in my heart for curve. I've probably been through a dozen bottles of the stuff and can't remember half of the compliments I've received wearing it. There is no replacement for curve period.

    Curve owns GIT

    I used to wear Curve in High school / College and sometimes still do. Once I started branching out I discovered I liked gourmand and other "rich" fragrances such as A*Men, A*Men Pure Coffee, La Nuit de l'homme, The One for men, Le Male, Dior Homme, Burberry London, etc. I'm also enjoying more niche scents such as Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille, Aventus, Guerlain l'instant pour homme extreme, and Chergui among others.

    Of the Creeds, I like MI & SMW the best. Wearing GIT and Tom Ford's Oud Wood layered with the Oud Wood in the background, is very VERY nice.

    I also wear Original Vetiver, VIW & Aventus somewhat often.

    I also wore Curve throughout HS and college. In college it was my signature scent becasue it was so affordable and the girls always loved it. However, I moved on and discovered other scents. But, the other day I purchased a 2.5oz bottle and I love it. I'm seriously thinking about using Curve as my signature scent again because no one really wears it these days. Longevity and sillage are great and it's similiar in my opinion to A&F Fierce, but not overdone as Fierce.

    i also wore curve through some of my high school days and college but it wasn't my favorite. the good thing about it though was that it was cheap and universally liked.

    if you liked curve, you probably would have liked CK Eternity. Either way, a good step up would be Platinum Egoiste by Chanel or even Allure, including the Allure flankers (sport, etc)

    Another alternative is Versace Pour Homme or Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme

    nowadays, many of the scents I like are not as easy to wear or versatile as Curve , so i tend to space them out through seasons. l'instant de guerlain extreme is probably holding my no. 1 spot at the moment.

    I wore Curve a lot when I was 18-23. I don't wear it much nowadays, but when I used to wear it girls would compliment me on it like it was their job. It's ridiculous how much girls adore this cologne. It's not the most complex or most prestigious cologne, but it's a guaranteed compliment getter that girls adore.

    Been recommending this a lot lately, but for something similar to Curve that's a significant upgrade, go with Nautica Voyage, an inexpensive aquatic designed by a master perfumier.

    I still wear curve along with others (MI, SMW, Reflection to name a few)... Take a break from it, enjoy other fragrances out there and revisit curve. I might have to change up my NYE plans on wearing Niche and bust out the ol faithful Curve.

    My 15 year-old son smells great in Curve! It never really meshed with my skin. It's still great and not at all dated.
