Really love this smell. The original curve smelled bad to me but once I found this one I loved it. It is the right combination of musk and vanilla scents for me. Will buy again =)

I admit, this is not high perfume art, but it doesn't pretend to be. There are days when I am not dressed to impress, nor does my nose want to contend with anything too formal, bold, or bombastic. Curve Crush has become my go-to everyday scent on its own merits as a surprisingly soft, pleasant floriental. I like it a lot better than the original Curve, which to my nose is bland and soapy. I could do without the inelegant bottle design, with its giant scribbly letters in clashing fonts. My husband saw the bottle on my dresser and thought it was cheap liquor. That makes me feel a little silly about using it at age 41... although I do love the purple theme.
But hey, it's $20 a bottle at Marshalls, so Baccarat ain't wasting crystal on it. I stand by the juice itself, which is both distinctive-- that chai/licorice combo is delicious but Oriental rather than gourmand-sweet-- and very soft, delicate, and wearable. Powdery, but clean. Not the sugar-overload of Fantasy and the like. Not at all. It reminds me in some ways of florientals of the '80s like Oscar, Vanderbilt and Lou Lou, but modernized in its use of sparkling citrus top notes and its lack of heavy indolic florals and thick woods. That is fine with me! I actually love Curve Crush right along with my big-ticket scents, and often more so. Don't be put off by the packaging, just give it a try. And if you can find a seller offering the perfume strength, rather than the EDT, I find that one softer and richer-smelling.

Curve Crush is one of my latest cheap thrills that I sampled at Walmart and returned to buy the next day.
If you like the scent of baby powder and sweet feminine scents this is for you. If you like Avon's Sweet Honesty, Armani's She, Ombre Rose, VS Heavenly, Anna Sui original in the purple bottle, Cashmere Mist and Bill Blass Nude, I recommend this little gem.
Warning though, don't overapply: this has great staying power and a little goes a long way. Too much sprayed on will not smell better!
Crush's notes are citrus, chai latte, cyclamen nectar; middle notes of white orchid, lily of the valley and anisette, and a drydown of vanilla, tonka bean and musk.
Crush is an everyday, running errands scent, very feminine and comforting. On boxing day I got a set with the edt, mini and body cream for about fourteen CDN. It smells like baby powder, vanilla and rose, all three are favourite notes of mine, so I love this scent.

I know it's a little cheap, but this stuff really makes me happy. It's my favorite perfume I own, and spraying it on just makes me feel wonderful and warm. It smells like lavender and vanilla to me, with a bit of almost cotton candy. It's VERY sweet, and might seem a bit juvenile to some. I love smelling it on my clothes after a night out though. It's definitely worth the very low price. I have bought this twice now and don't regret it at all.

I love the powdery sweet fragrance but why is there was no cap that comes with this perfume? After purchasing I read the reviews and looked at the pictures and was like, "say what?" There is no cap/top/lid, whatever you want to call it - IT'S NOT THERE!!!
However, it does come with an atomizer clip so that it won' spray during travel. Make sure to hold on to this because I could see this being thrown out easily. Needless to say once I realized this I was thoroughly disappointed. The fragrance itself is great, though. HTH

This is a great casual fragrance for those days when you're in jeans and a T-shirt, and you're not doing anything or seeing anyone special, but still want to smell really nice. It starts off quite strong, and smells like a super sweet, yet spicy, baby powder. I do find it a bit overwhelming at first, but it mellows out not too long after and ends up smelling like sweet, creamy baby powder with a hint of spice. Sounds kind of weird, but is really very pleasant. It doesn't even really end up smelling like perfume, but just very clean and pampered. Very inoffensive. The sillage and lasting power are excellent, and it is very inexpensive. Curve Crush, along with Jovan White Musk are drugstore perfumes that are very cozy and very pretty, and I am very content having them in my perfume collection and rotation with my other high-end fragrances.

Stink juice!! Gives me a terrible headache. Bf said it smells like bug repellant and he doesn't want to be anywhere near me. The positive thing is, if this works well for you, it is quite long-lasting so good sillage for the money, as it's pretty cheap as well. Makes me nauseous, though.

This one has grown on me slowly. It's one of only two of the many down-market Claiborne formulations that I like (the other is Realities Sweet Desire). I am generally more of a fragrance snob, to the point of seeking out vintage versions and decants. I generally loathe the glutted, cheapened, chemicalized modern fragrance market. But Curve Crush feels very warm and cozy to me, and very reminiscent of some of my favorite florientals from the '80s-- notably Lou Lou, Obsession, and Ombre Rose. It has Lou Lou's depth, Obsession's cinnamon and tonka, and Ombre's honeyed baby powder. I've been wearing it a lot in the colder weather and gotten lots of compliments.
I think what I like about it is the juxtaposition of the deep orchid midnote with the "frothy chai latte" topnote, creating a feel of both spicy warmth and wistful purple flowers. It's just pretty. Maybe not especially unique, but it's well-done and smells great on me.

I love this perfume. It brings back memories of times I've had with friends & it smells really nice, it's not too floral or "old-ladyish" lol. Only complaint is I don't think I get enough for the money. Definitely would recommend.

My signature scent. I love it so much, smells floral and romantic. Way better than the original Curve. Tried out many perfumes and I always end up going back to this one.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
What a sweet surprise this fragrance is! Powdery and sweet. Nothing like the original Curve which I was not too fond of.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
This is my signature scent. I wear it all the time. On me it smells very powdery, a bit floral and romantic. Makes a good day-time perfume but I wear it all the time just because I love it so much!

I went and bought 3 bottles after smelling this and I wanted to like this but it turns musky and it made me mad! I do like the way it smells like licorice and powder though it is very unique! If the musk could be toned down I'd wear it!

I bought the Curve Crush Body Mist one day while out Christmas shopping and went ahead and got a bottle for myself and my sister. They made great stocking stuffers.
I think for the price, its a good value (I paid about $10 for a little more than 4 oz). The scent is a combination of vanilla, baby powder, and roses.
I usually prefer lighter, citrus scents (i.e. Clinique Happy), so this one is definitely not going be used everyday. But I like it enough to use it once or twice a week.

I really liked this, smelled it on a friend of mine and had to have a bottle. Worth it since it's so cheap. I really like scents like this one.. I love floral fruity scents..

This is pretty decent, non-offensive. I agree with one of the previous reviewers that it has a Skin-so-Soft vibe to it, as well as Love's Baby Soft. On me, it is pretty soft and powdery - a good weekend day scent that is casual and not in your face. It (at least on me) lacks the sophistication for a work or evening scent. Aside from that, my only complaint is the packaging. Why couldn't they spend less on a box (and just use paper), and add a capt instead of that little plastic ring tab? LOL - that's it from me!

Duffy 0825 was right on the money calling this "Love's Baby Soft on crack". On my skin it dried down to cotton candy and rancid musk. Long lasting, too. The only Claiborne fragrance I can wear well is the original "Liz Caliborne" from 1986.

I love love love this perfume. i got a little sample products of all the curve products through the internet for some ridiculously cheap prince... and i just fell in love with curve crush out of the bunch!
Everytime i wear it, without fail, i get a compliment or two. Almost always from men, actually. Im completely amazed at how many people have come up to me, asking what perfume im wearing. Its become my signature scent.
To me, its the perfect blend of a yummy spicy vanilla/amber perfume without the chemically smell or like your wearing food. With its cheap price, its one of my favorate secrets! Will continue to repurchase.
