I somehow get rid of a bottle of this perfume, and then end up with another. Curve (the original blue) isn't bad at all. It's fresh, and a little bit powdery. I just don't reach for it much at all. I remember loving it in high school. Now it sort of falls back behind current favorites, like Pink Sugar. But the scent does bring back lots of fond memories. And the little green stopper is just too cute.
I think this is Avon's answer to the Escada LE's. Sometimes I want to use my Pacific Paradise sparingly, so this is the nice alternative when I want that fruity burst but don't want to use my "expensive" perfume. It's fresh, fun, and the bottle is cute. You can smell the blackberry note in this. I like that a lot. I wouldn't repurchase (I think it's actually discontinued now) but it's a nice scent. It does take a few sprays to get it to last, however.

Call me crazy...I often hate anything that is overdone, but I do adore Love Spell. I love the grapey note it has. I think it's super for summer, and is an instant pick me up (for me anyway). I like the purple coloring. It's just a nice, fruity, fun scent. Great for fun occasions, and I've even worn it to something a bit formal.
This is about as good as you can expect for a drugstore body shaping treatment. I don't have a lot of cellulite, but there are some areas that I feel need a little firming. Every woman feels that way. I've had 2 bottles of this stuff. It's a great light-weight summer moisturizer. It does go on a little greasy, and I usually apply some lounge pants over it to help absorb a little better. Once those come off, my legs are smooth and feel firmer! I use it on my legs, butt, and upper arms. It doesn't work wonders, but it does work. And that's about all you could ask for.
I guess I'm the first one to say that this scent *isn't* too bad. I've smelled a lot worse. If you expect a fruity floral from VS, this one sure isn't it. It's a lot different from any VS scent. It's powdery and soft, and I figure BBW Moonlight Path lovers could like it a lot. I got a shower gel of it because I did think the other forms could be too strong. I probably wouldn't get anything else in this line again, but it's not a terrible, awful scent.

Watch out for leaks in the sugar scrubs...Mine leaked all over even when it was standing upright and had the lid on tight. Overall most Suds products are pretty good, but this one was a mess from the get go.

A great vanilla fragrance! When I wear this with my Warm Vanilla Sugar splash, I smell like a walking sugar cookie. The thickness of this lotion makes it a great moisturizer. BBW should have really found a way to lower the price on Tutti Dolci, or else we may have been able to keep it longer.
In the tube it looks dark red, but on my lips it gives a slight hint of color and I love it. I'm a pale redhead soI figured this gloss would be death on me, but I love it. It's smooth, and I like the texture. I wish it lasted a little longer. I got this as an extra in a swap, and it was a great, welcome surprise!
A nice scent, but for some reason I find I never wear it much. The bottle is kind of weird, but it's a nice fruity floral.

If they still made this I'd get more. My skin does seem firmer when I use this. The scent isn't bad at all. My main gripe is the packaging. Very terrible screw top lid makes things go to waste and messy!

I actually liked this product. I've gone through several bottles in the last year or so. It is d/c now so it can't be found in stores, but sometimes at sales it shows up 75% off or so. The key is to use it everyday 2 times a day and rub it in throughly. I know that sometimes that's hard to do in a busy day. The shimmer doesn't bother me. It's just something kind of fun to have already done when you want a shimmer lotion.
Gorgeous bottle, great scent. Excellent for a hot summer day when you still want to smell good. And Escada makes similar scents each year, so when this one runs out, there is another one close by!
Gorgeous bottle, this one is my favorite of the Escada LE editions. I get lots of compliments on this one. It has a pineapple note to it that I just love. Very light and easy on the nose on a 90 degree day.
I love the Escada LE summer scents. This bottle is gorgeous, and the scent isn't strong, but it is nice for a hot night out. I think it does smell very similar to Island Kiss and Rockin' Rio, but it has its little difference that makes it nice.
Romantic Wish is my favorite VS scent. I have nearly everything in it. It reminds me of watermelon. My best friend (who is a guy) love this scent. It's great and light for summer, which is when I use it most. I sometimes splash some on in the winter for a fun mental summer vacation or something. Highly recommended!!!
