Britney Spears' Curious is a lively, bright and effervescent fruity floral, aimed at twentysomethings with attitude. The Curious woman is romantic, independent and mischievous, one who's not afraid of risk. This is Britney Spears' first fragrance in partnership with Coty Inc., launched in 2004. It became an instant hit with the public.

The composition is based on the notes of white flowers surrounded with vanilla and musk nuances. It opens with fresh lotus, mouthwatering pear and magnolia. The intensive floral heart is composed of tuberose, jasmine and pink cyclamen. The sensual base is composed of musk, vanilla and precious woods.

The nose behind this fragrance is Claude Dir.

Curious Britney Spears Fragrance Reviews

theperfumemaniac

LOVELY perfume! One of those scents that is instantly recognizable. Aquatic and fresh. A very fresh scent.

It is a clean smell with a hint of fruit, but it isn't a fruity fragrance. If you want a great aquatic perfume, this is it.

As with every Britne Spears fragrance, it has amazing longevity. I really like this one.

My father gifted me a bottle many years ago and I still have about half of it and the packaging - it's so nice. I also really like the scent: It's a soft floral with hints of musk and vanilla. But never overly sweet nor musky. It's so nicely balanced and a really feminine and comforting scent. It's to cold now to let this beauty shine but I will give it a go again come spring. And in the meantime I will steal a spritz now and then before I go to bed.

I feel like this scent really fits Britney and can imagine her smelling like this. The bottle also looks really nice on display :)

This fragrance has earned a special place in my heart. It's definitely the innocent-yet-sexy barbie doll scent for real women. There's something very youthful and playful about it and it's ideal for young women or for always-young-at-heart ladies

Found this marked down really cheap at Marshall's or I probably wouldn't have tried it at all. Another really inoffensive jasmine/vanilla/musk to add to my hoard. Not very exciting but I still got a lot of use out of it, and don't find that I'm sick of it when I come back after a break. Biggest complaint is that it doesn't seem to last long at all.

This is so far the most safest perfume I have ever used. Sometimes, when you are not that confident and feeling pressurized, this one would help you a bit. A very clean aquatic, fresh floral, shampooish perfume. Amazing. I am planning to order 2-3 bottles. I so love this one. I have a 100 ml (3.4 fl oz) perfume and a 200 ml (6.8 fl oz) of Britney Spears Curious deliciously whipped body lotion.

A weird experience: when I was waiting inside a bank counter to pay a bill, a strange young gentleman, standing behind me leaned to me and started sniffing the smell which was kinda LOL... I think eventhough this one is mild, it is a really curious perfume. OMG I am an essayist. :-D

When I hear "fresh and clean","shampoo" or "aquatic" being used to describe a scent,I imagine it smelling something like Zest soap,lemons and J.Lo Glow...

This frag does not smell fresh and clean to me, and I have yet to own a shampoo that smells like this. All I can smell are sweet white florals..which burn my nostrils and would probably give me a headache (and I wear Angel).

I can't see young girls wearing this,it seems far too floral heavy,and not fresh/fruity...but that's just my opinion.

If you like thick sweet florals,you'll love this.It's potent stuff..

I much prefer the fruitier Fantasy line (Circus and Midnight).

i think this is one of the fragrances i should have used before becoming a fragantican! seriously this perfume blows me away. its clean, fresh, crisp and really aquatic. I really love the lotus, magnolia stuff in it. It really makes me remind about something i missed somewhere. Very uplifting. I wish the longevity to be a bit more than being moderate.

I love this juice.

Curious is light, soft, floral aquatic with clear magnolia and jasmine. At the end it turns into creamy vanilla but still stays fresh enough. In it's essence Curious is very simple. But it was the most complemented perfume in my life. So you never know what magic can hide behind the modesty :)

This is very good to me. It smells sooo clean and cool. Distinctive and pretty. I can really smell the magnolia. Makes me feel like a southern bell. To me this perfume kind of smells like the ocean. I don't get much sweetness. It's quite strong and sharp at first but once it's been on for an hour or 2 it smells sooo good. It really lasts on my skin and works with my chemistry. Makes me feel fresh and clean all day. One of my all-time favorites.

I happen to have a roll on of this and use it for when I am lounging around the house. This light sugary fragrance is an excellent choice for those who want something as sweet as they are. When I smell it I think of peppy blondes, girls laughing, and coy glances at the cute guy across the way. I appreciate this scent for those things but it is not a going out fragrance to me. This is something light and quick, like a body splash. And apparently my cat loves it. She always wants to wrap herself around my wrist whenever I apply it!

It used to be my go-to summer scent, it is light, floral and fresh even though it has Tubersose that can be a heavy floral...I think the Lotus balances it out nicely where it is fresh yet feminine and not bordering on smelling masculine like some summer fragrances can turn in heat. I have since moved on to more complex aquatic scents but do not mind spritzing it occasionally when I miss some of my by-gone youth summers!

Unless this is an exception, Britney's perfumes are made in cooperation with Elizabeth Arden and not Coty. But anyway, regarding Curious, personally I don't see anything that some people can characterise as "old lady" scent. I don't personally use the term, but I got the impression that some people use it for heavy scents before 80s (to be more specific, for patterns of scents). Anyway, this is a total floral perfume with the magnolia being very distinctive. In my opinion there is nothing outdated about it and in fact I believe it is the kind of perfume a lot of teenagers would like to wear. It follows the trend of the 2000 decade with the light florals. Personally I like the scent and it is good for sprin or summer every day use. Unfortunately its lasting power is close to 3 hours and its sillage very close to the skin. Also, the bottle is super cute.

This is a light yet pleasant floral, seems well suited for spring. I feel that it could be suited for people of any age. Despite having a preference for gourmand scented perfumes I do make an exception for this one. It helps that it comes in a lovely bottle. Had a bestie during high school that loved it as well and would have to take turns with her mom using their one bottle because both were so fond of it.

Having heard and read really positive things about this scent I was excited to find it at my local TJ Hughes for under a tenner. The box and bottle impressed me but I thought it smelt terrible! Maybe it's a skin chemistry thing but to me this smells really old fashioned, like the sort of thing an old woman would wear. I really can't understand why this is such a popular scent. Horrid!

Curious got my curiousity when I was in high school. The box was cute and the bottle was pretty (too bad it comes with different atomizer and box opening now).

This is my 2nd bottle. The jasmine is very intensive and bold on my skin, it's a good thing for me since I love jasmine. The longevity on my skin only last for 3 hours, but it last more than 48 hours on fabric. After 2 hours I can only smell musk and vanilla which I love. It is very light and feminine, I use it on hot casual days.

The bad things are the new atomizer (without the bulb) and the liquid turns yellowish after few months

Just got this, and the moment i spray it on i remember i had something smelling like this in junior high.... But i am sure it was not this perfume! Anyway initially i get the magnolia note, lovely and sensual, must wait to get to the basenotes, but offhand i was surprised that a celebrity perfume can smell so grown up, most others that i tried is so so sweet and cloying... Not this one, its sexy and warm. 9/10

I hate to give any perfume a negative review,because smell is so subjective. I think the musk and magnolia produce a heavy smokey smell on me. This perfume ends up smelling like perfume and cigarettes on my skin. I know my skin chemistry is the problem,and not the perfume. The bottle I bought was fresh and from a reputable department store. I gave it to my daughter,and it smelled lovely on her skin.

I wanted this so much as a child/tween....I had plenty of bath and body works body sprays but my next door neighbor's mother gifted her one and I will always remember this as the first "real" perfume I smelled. (I was about 9 then, lol.) I loved the ads and marketing campaign and was definitely "curious" (couldn't resist!!!)

Well 10 years later I finally got a small bottle in Boots in Camden, London. The sales clerk tried talking me into buying a larger bottle for not much more money but I wanted a small perfume so as not to weigh down my handbag.

I was surprised how much I still liked Curious. Definitely unusual, I picked up on the smokiness and magnolias mixed with vanilla. Woodsy yet sweet enough to balance it out. Also surprising was the longevity...here's one celeb perfume with silage and staying power!

I have gotten loads of compliments when wearing Curious out clubbing, even though I was a bit embarrassed to admit it was a Britney fragrance, just goes to show never pre judge.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this perfume again, and the low price is just another added bonus. ^_^

I haven't made up my mind about it. It's very ozonic and light. I generally go with gourmands, so it's out of my usual range of perfumes. With the weather so hot though, I will give it a go tomorrow and see how it develops throughout the day.

It was a blind buy from Shoppers, 100mls for $20. I would prob return it, but I don't want to deal with the hassle and I'll give it a fair chance :)

I need to find out why everyone else likes this so much, I see this perfume everywhere, in all shapes and sizes.

Britney Spears Curious has an overpowering white musk from beginning to end. I usually adore white musk however I couldn't wait for Curious to wear off (and it took quite a while). There are slight aquatic flower undertones but they were well hidden beneath all that suffocating musk. To my nose this is not a well-balanced fragrance.

My go to everyday fragrance. So light and fresh, with the pear and aquatic note. This fragrance seems to stay the same on me as when I have just sprayed it on. Nice and clean. I have recently purchased the squeeze bottle version of this and can't wait to recieve it!

I usually like fresh, aquatic perfumes like this, but I never much liked this one. It could have been because too many people I knew wore it, but I think it was something nauseating about the pear.

I just found the body souflee for $5 so I decided, what they heck?
There is a definite teen feeling, I like most notes of it, the pear/jasmine and a bit of musk which is not listed as a prominent note but on me it s.
I can understand that some people find this too floral, I don't generally wear anything with tuberose but I can barely detect in in this.
I was going to give this one away to someone younger but maybe I will keep it for summer because I am getting more attached to it.
I like the fact that this bottle has an atomizer.

I use the body souffle as the spray perfume itself smells like hairspray. This scent smells like I've just stepped out of the shower, like a shampoo/soap kind of smell.

Curious is a pretty white floral fragrance. I'm not a teen, I'm over 40 and I still enjoy this. The pear gives it a juicy feel. Nice touch of musk and woods to counter the scent being too sweet. I've received compliments more than once wearing this one. I like several of Britney's perfumes. This would be in the top 3.

There is something cold about this perfume. It is definitely a floral-aquatic. It has that clean, just-showered, shampoo-like smell, with a twist of cool orchid and musk. I don't get any pear on me at all unfortunately.

Curious is indeed curious. It's not what I expected from Britney, probably because I was familiar with the Fantasy line before I ever smelled Curious. This one is more grown-up, a really lovely fresh floral, perfect for warmer weather. I think Curious could turn into a summer must-have fragrance!

I've got it today. My first impression on this perfume is clean, fresh and flora scent. I don't know but my opinion it's like a body mist with the complex pyramid note. I like it not love like In Control or Radiance, Fantasy, but it's a flora summer scent by Britney I can use in summer

When you first spray curious, All i can smell is pear, pear pear. The sweetness of the pear then lightens down and i can smell jasmine and magnolia. It then dries down to a fresh, clean woody smell.

Curious will ALWAYS be my favourite everyday
clean fresh girlie scent. I own the 30ml and i really want to get the 100ml :)

I'm on a re-testing kick with all my blind buys I didn't love last year. Interestingly these are mostly perfumes that are heavy on the (white) florals. I don't know if my nose has changed or if the notes in these fragrances have 'settled' a bit, causing them to be much more mellow.

In any case, I tried Curious again today, and this time I finally understand what all the reviewers are talking about when they speak of an innocent, lovely, inoffensive, clean, subtle scent. This smells so cute in a pure, innocent way (unlike the cupcake/vanilla/cotton candy gourmand 'young girl' frags that have flooded the market to the point of over-saturation).

I do get a bit of a nail polish remover vibe if I overspray this, and the longevity and sillage are not as great as I would have liked, but I have a small bottle that I can easily carry around. I think this is definitely worth the (rather low) price it sells for online, and I might even finish my 30 ml bottle this year!

This does indeed smell like some sort of cleaning product not intended for use on human bodies. If it smells good on you, you're lucky. If it smelled like blue Jell-O that would be a dramatic improvement. I can wear celebrity scents, but not this one. There's bad, and then there's next level bad.

After a short testing, I bought it as a replacement for my beloved Ralph Lauran Blue which was my first perfume (or so I recall), and which is so hard to come across, impossible, I say.

So, is Curious a perfect replacement? Nope, it is not the 100% replica of RL Blue. However, the feeling it ewokes is (almost) the same - both fragrances have an aquatic tingle in my nose, also they are white flower scents with a clean, woody white musk base. The biggest difference is that Curious shares that certain fruity-vanilla with many other celebrity-releases. Not that I mind, Curious does it more subtle way, and is more pleasant and nicer than many other celebrity-frags, more floral than candied vanilla. Curious really reminds me of a younger, more "careless" version of RL Blue.

This is really unique, particularly for a celebrity fragrance, and it's become one of my favourites. On opening it smells really fresh and clean, before drying down to a soft musky floral with a hint of tangy pear. It reminds me of a refreshing cocktail on a summer's day. I initially bought a 30ml bottle of this because it was cheap and I wanted a generic fragrance to wear around the house, but I ended up loving it and buying the 100ml bottle. Unique, confident and wearable.

I must start saying that I'm not a fan of Britney Spears as a singer, but I have to give her merit for her fragrances. From the bottle, advertising to the fragrance, it's brilliant!! This was my first perfume of hers. At first I fell in love with the bottle and I was prehensive to buy it because I don't really follow or care for her, but when I smelled it I had to buy it. It is a flower smell with a little sweet and musk. Not overpowering, perfect for any age and time of the year because even though it is a strong mature scent it's fresh. I use it day or night. For me this is a very versatile fragrance because of what I mentioned before and it's perfect for this tropical weather that I live in. I emptied mine so definitely I'm gonna repurchase a bigger one.

i always wanted this perfume ever since i saw the ad outside a fragrance store though i didn't even go and try it out. i'm a fan of britney so i thought i just gotta have this perfume. but i never get to buy it coz back then i couldn't afford it and i wasn't into fragrance collecting. years later i got the chance to sniff it from a tester bottle at a store and i think it's too sweet. a typical britney perfume and i still didn't buy it. because of my thought towards curious was sweet, then i immediately realized that my taste probably have changed throughout the years since now i prefer more mature scents. now my sister gave me a bottle of curious. i gave it a try so i can give my fair review. this is what i have to say. i love it. from the first spritz to the dry down. it's a floral fragarance. i don't get the pear, vanilla and the woodsy notes here. kind of reminds me of radiance which they don't exactly smell alike. btw radiance smells more of tuberose. curious does smell nice and lovely. anyone would love this. the dominating note is definitely the magnolia. other flowers are noticeable as well. the dry down on my skin what i get was magnolia and kind of powdery musk. compare to trying on paper which it's dry down is so florally and i don't sense any musk at all. usually anything powdery is considered as old lady-ish, but i've come to a conclusion that anybody at any age can wear this. curious is kinda versatile. you can wear this at any occasion and anytime of the day or year. just don't use it during summer coz colder weather works well with this. both the longevity and sillage are moderate. which is fine for a floral fragrance. i'm glad that i gave it a try. i even misjudge curious for just being a sweet celebrity fragrance. definitely will purchase another bottle in the future.. =D

This is Britney`s best perfume in my opinion. It´s a little musky, fresh, and aquatic. It`s a perfume that a teenager and an adult woman can wear, best for any time of the day. It smells really nice and could pass as an expensive perfume! Love it.

I'd like to start off by saying I'm a big fan of the Britney fragrance line, and curious was probably the first girl perfume I started wearing I took my first sniff of it back when I was in middle school my aunt gave a curious bottle she had laying around the house that was my cousins I still had a bit left in it , then on the last day of school back when I was in eight grade my best friend bought it again for me as a gift I got a few more bottles over the years now I grown tired of it, I don't completely hate it but it's not my favorite I still have a 1.7 ounce I got for Christmas about two years ago and i really use it

I must give it credit, it's a long lasting perfume it stays all day and it's not a heavy floral

It's a great scent & very versatile. You can use this as a base for other perfumes. It gives off a 'Relaxed, I'm cute' impression on its own. I like it, it doesn't scream out 'I'm trying too hard'

its ironic because if you have the box, it says when you open it "do you dare?" and i almost laugh because the smell is sooooo innocent it just doesnt fit in at all!lol

Curious by Britney Spears is the first perfume from the pop icon. The box is very well designed it is black with blue and pink incorporated throughout the design. The bottle is what i call ufo shape. The bottle is a blue see through color that has a rope design neck. The bottle came with 2 little pink hearts on the end of 2 jewel chains. The perfume is very different from other celebrity perfumes. The perfume lasts roughly 4-6 hours and is not overpowering.
This perfume gets a 9/10 from me :)

Just bought this one and I am quite pleasantly surprised. Nothing ground breaking, but a well executed white floral with a hint of wood in the base to give depth. On my skin I get a lot of jasmine, and the scent is quite true to nature to my nose. A classic and classy simple scent.

I bought this perfume as a teenager when it first came out. I mainly bought it because I loved Britney (at the time) and I wanted to smell like her. Lucky for me I actually liked the scent. It smells like straight up magnolias. I don't really care for it much anymore though.

I used to own this when I was younger. Curious is a very light fragrance, it's like wearing nothing at all. Sillage is very soft and it's not exactly a girls' perfume in a way that it isn't centered around vanilla and musk as I'd expect; rather it's a soft and slightly fruity floral.

A mature woman can wear this too. It's as good as many other rather more expensive fresh and light perfumes.

I am not able to give this rather positive feedback for other sugarbomb perfumes by Britney Spears. I think, Curious is the best in her range as well as the first.

Bought the 30 ml bottle at Ross for $12,99 on a blind buy. I hated how it didn't have the cute pump but that's ok i guess.

When I first smelled this is was very fresh and nice, perfect for spring time. After about an hour though I sort of felt that it smelled similar to the shampoo i use.

But I still like to wear it a lot during sunny days ;)

I was surprised by how far I could smell myself. At school I got up from my desk to give something to my teacher and when I came back I could smell myself. I can still smell myself for maybe half an hour and then I don't realize I'm wearing it anymore. Still, you can smell it from across the room. However, despite being quite strong for me, it lasts about 4-6 ish hours.

Amazing scent for the spring. A day scent, but depending on the situation can be worn at night.

If you like the bottle be cause of the vintage look, but you don't like the fragrance much or may be feel that you have out grown it, try and have a look at Berdoues Perfumes. The violet ones. They are beautiful and are not marketed especially for very young women.
Of course this is not really about the Britney Frag - just a remark for the ones, who sometimes falls so much for a gorgeous bottle, that you feel incredibly tempted to get it ( I am expecting Violettes de Toulouse right now, and even though I really like violettes, it was the bottle that caught my attention :-)
Sorry if this was not completely relevant here, but if you look at Violette de Toulouse, may be you can forgive me for it :-)

This is either an aweful perfume or I got an old bottle. I was curious and now I feel guilty about my blind buy.... So maybe I should buy Gucci Gulity next... Haha.

This smell exactly like cheap hair spray to me. It's horrible and does not smell like a perfume. Woof. I bought a 1 oz. bottle from Target's clearance section. Adorable bottle. Horrible juice!!

I got this perfume as a freshman in high school and remember loving it then. I was shopping at kohls and discovered it there, so I bought a bottle for old times sake. Omg, I remember why I love it! I immediately smell the white floral notes. If white florals are too powerful for you, stay away. It mellows to a soft, musky gardenia smell that smells intoxicating. My husband really likes this one! Smells VERY similar to Ralph Lauren Blue (I have a tester bottle at home), but at a third the cost!

This fragrance is light and soft, I smelled some sweetness and floral, but it was light and aquatic at the same time. It didn't last too long on me at all. "Curious" is a good scent, a teenager could wear it.

Got this because so many people voted it smelled like Blue and I couldn't find Blue at the time. I now have found Blue at Ulta and had one on one wrist and one on the other, and while related, they are definitely different. I think Curious is sweeter and blue is more floral. I like them both.

Some comedian mentioned that this perfume smells like "eating birthday cake on the Bayou", and I agree 100%. The vanilla scent is the most prominent scent, and it's so cloyingly sweet that it is almost sickening. It's like eating a tube of vanilla frosting in one sitting. Plus this perfume reminds me of high school-if anyone was unlucky enough to be assaulted by this smell in their high school locker room, they'll know what I mean.

You can definitely smell this aquatic smell. it's very fresh, clean, I wanna say citric or floral. It doesn't stink but if you like some of the perfumes listed that others bought, I think you'd like this one.
If you like Mariah Carey's lucious pink, i think this would fit you. It's got a soft but strong smell to it.

This was my birthday present for my 15th birthday....my first "real" perfume. Since then I have ALWAYS loved this perfume! I wore it through most of high school. This scent lasts all day on me (maybe because I'm a fair haired, fair skin woman; I once heard that has something to do with how long fragrances linger on your skin).

On me, this scent smells heavily of Magnolia and Tuberose, with just a hint of musk. Very intoxicating and very feminine.

I (unfortunately) don't have a bottle right now, but every time I'm at Kohl's, I spray some on and it takes me right back. Love it!!!

When this first came out, I was drawn in by the pretty bottle and run off by the scent. All I could smell was an old lady magnolia stench. With it coming from Britney Spears and mmarketing toward teens and young women, I couldn't understand why it smelled like this. To be fair, anything with magnolia makes me think of old lady perfume and it turns my stomache.

Dear reader,

What can I say about this fragrance called Curious?
curiosity killed this cat !

Oh yes, my roman nose was almost shot or atleast it felt close to it, this perfume has way to much alcohol, a cheap musky synthetic magnolia that must have be grown in a meth lab my dear reader this perfume is the type if you spray on your skin it "hangs around" like a desperate drunken cheap tramp you see at the clubs or been her almost victim but got away before she and the crabs got to you.
I thought this perfume will have a charm to it since the title is very provocative and the perfume cushion pumper is very vintage and the texture was very inviting to the touch and really makes you wanna pump but like the old saying goes curiosity killed the cat .
I don't recommend this perfume as a gift unless you dislike the person if you want to have a "mean girl" moment but to receive this as a gift says a lot..either the person doesn't really got to know you well, has no taste or they believe you don't have no taste so this perfume is befitting.
generic and too spendy waste of a fragrance, if anyone smells great in this message me..i want to believe in miracles too but for now this perfume ranks in the cheap perfume wham bam thank you ma'am types, proceed with caution or look elsewhere for quality my dear reader.

Curious is just the name I would choose for a delightfully yummy; yet oddly deviant bang-up job of a scent I only wear when I can take advantage of sniffing my arm and to try to wrap my head around, such as in the evening watching t.v. The Lotus gives Curious an aquatic personality with a unusual contrasting strong and sweet projection. Layering it with another favorite amps it up and extend it's longevity. Experiment with what you like.

Once my chemistry crosses with this fragrance, the result is a single power flower with a supporting fruit. Fortunately,in my case this is Lotus with a sweet and green pear as the sole flourish. As with Wipe the board of any more possibilities, for they don't exist.

I thought my favorite Britney was Circus Fantasy...apricot blossoms on 100 trees blooming all at once and sweetened grapefruit, but Curious is a serious contender for sharing first place.....

This was my first proper perfume which I received on my 10th birthday and I still love it :) I've held off doing a review for this one as I haven't had a bottle for a while and haven't been wearing it. However, it was on sale so I thought I'd grab a big one while the price was good ^^

The bottle is so pretty! I bought the 100mL bottle which has the spray atomiser (I haven't yet had a perfume with one of those :3). It looks quite classy hehe :) And the little pink heart gems are super cute and compliment the blue bottle nicely C:

Now to the scent itself. I've been having trouble trying to decipher the notes as to me it's always been 'that scent'. I can say that it is a more floral fragrance though. I usually dislike floral scents, but this and Marc Jacob's Daisy Eau So Fresh have been the exceptions. Curious is a softer, more delicate floral. On the first spray it's quite 'clean' and slightly aquatic. I usually hate strong white florals, but I think the floral notes in this one mix well with the musk and woody base notes. It's a light fragrance, not extremely potent, and though the lasting power isn't absolutely amazing, as the day goes on I can still smell it faintly on my skin. The scent doesn't change throughout the day on me, so if you like the initial aroma then don't be too worried about the scent changing on you! I think it's more of a day time fragrance which can be worn maybe all year round :)

I think I've mentioned everything (I hope ;O). So to sum up, Curious is a light floral scent with a musk and woody base. It smells fresh and isn't too overwhelming. Even if you don't like florals (like me), I still recommend testing it out because this one is much softer and still feminine ^^

Hope this helps a bit :D

Pretty, not-too-sweet scent, with unfortunately just the right amount of tuberose to give me a splitting headache. But longevity and sillage are both quite good. If it weren't for the fact that I would have to dose up on Advil to wear it, I think I'd have kept it.

What can i say? Curiosity got the best of me and in all honesty i wasnt too disappointed. It has a clean girly smell on me. Nothing too magical but its worth wearing to a brunch or something. Dont expect anything magnetic to happen by wearing this. This isnt bound to get u noticed. Its more a soft suttle fragrance that has a little playful twist on the dry down. It will last a good few hours but not all day like the original fantasy.

I love this fragrance. It's so comforting and the magnolia really blends in nicely with the fruity, musky scents. I feel like I'm sitting in my mum's flower garden when I wear this. I normally dislike musky fragrances, especially when it's strong, but this one is quite light and calming - clean enough for exam study sessions (:

Even though I love fruity and sweet scents, I'm trying this one in the end of fall, beginning of winter in Alaska (it's started snowing), and it completely clashes with my skin. I actually kind of like the scent, but it's going to have to be saved for summer and tried again. If it still doesn't work for me then, it'll go away. It really reminds me of being on a beach....

I figured out a good analogy - it's like having snow everywhere in the heart of winter and then seeing a girl walking around in a bikini. Sure she's kind of cute, but totally inappropriate and obvious. Again, going to have to wait for summer :(

I forget what this perfume smells like, but I ordered the in control curious body soufflé, and the seller added the curious lotion with it. It smells horrid, like cleaing products ..synthetic flowers with aquatic undertones. I was excited to get the extra lotion , but I won't wear it even to moisturize. I guess there's a reason why I never wanted the perfume lol. I hate how this one is so popular when In Control Curious is unheard of, reduced to a limited edition.. Makes no sense cuz in control is my signature frag and it's soo gorgeous and sexy. I'm sure more ppl would lean towards in control if more ppl were able to try it. Its way more likeable. i don't get it.

The thing I love about this perfume is that it still smells just as good as it did when it first came out. I'm on my like, 5th bottle of this and I still love it. It is distinctly its own~ a touch of Davidoff's Cool Water, but with magnolias and sweet jasmine flowers...and yummy, succulent pear at the heart. Think like a "Pink, Girly Cool Water." And definitely a favourite of the opposite sex! I am 27 years old now and still in love with this fragrance after all these years. A Very clean smell...but Very interesting and yummy at the same time!!! Way to go Britney!

Well the name fits, its definitely a curious scent. It smells like ammonia and some kind of cleaning product on me. I can't pick out any botanicals.

Curious by Britney Spears is warm, fresh, delicate, and a little sweet. It is a quiet fragrance that carries a little more sophistication than many of the other candied celebrity fruity florals out there. I get a lot of pear and lotus from it. The magnolia is there too, but it is not as lemony as the white magnolia flowers we have around my area. I definitely sense a slight aquatic appeal to this fragrance too.

I like Curious quite a bit. I wear it occasionally and enjoy its subtlety and soft touch. When I describe it to people, I say it smells like shampoo marketed toward a 9-year-old girl. I'm not making a value judgement. It's just an observation.

Performance-wise, I would say it is one notch up from a skin scent, as I can smell it quite well at an arm's length. It doesn't last super long, but it doesn't just disappear. It gets incredibly quiet.

What was an onsale blind-buy purchase has now become one of my favourite new perfumes. This is one of the most perfectly balanced fragrances I've ever smelt. A refreshing spring/summer scent, that's not too light to the point where the warm weather melts it right off your skin, and not so heavy that you're giving everyone around you a headache. Crisp and juicy pear mixed with delicate white petals and slivers of woods. I love it.

This is unlike any of the fantasy perfumes, I bought this on a recommendation from my sister.
Hmm it's not my favourite but its not horrible either.
If you like light, fresh and floral perfumes you'll like this, flowers is really all you can smell, it smells 'white' and has no depth to it.
A very simple perfume, not for those who want to smell sensual, and mysterious.
Suitable for day wear, not so great for nights, fresh and young.
I wouldn't buy again but will wear when the mood takes me during the day when I want something light and fresh and not too long lasting.
So many people say this is their favourite of Britneys but I disagree and it's my least favourite! If you like the sweet candied smells of the fantasy range you may not like this one.

Magnolia and lotus are my favorite notes ever, plus i love everything floral-aquatic. So the composition sounds as it was created for me! But...After two weeks of use i got tired of perfume and it became too musky. I wish it stayed so fresh, light and creamy as it was the first days. I start to be convinced of idea about bad quality ingredients in celebrity perfumes. But it is good deal when you are young and don't have big budget.
BTW it is one of rare perfumes which attracted compliments from strangers. Take a note lol ;)

Sweet pear note, and then a feminine but not too overwhelming white floral. Not too strong so it would be good it you liked white floras but didn't want to overwhelm. It smells a bit generic though -- it's nice but it's something you've smelled before and it doesn't stick out in my memory the way Fantasy for example does. It's a bit tame for the line.

Upon the first spray you get a nice mouth watering pear and magnolia scent which I think is the dominating note of the entire scent when you spray this fragrance at first it doesn't change too much as it progresses it just gets a little bit more woodsy towards the dry down which isn't a bad thing because the fragrance stays nice and fresh throughout. Overall nice and fresh not overbearing or sweet at all if I could categorise this fragrance I would say an aquatic floral. The lasting power is good not over powering but not underwhelming just right Scent 7/10 Lasting Power 7/10 Bottle 8/10

I had to get this one in 2005, it is one of the very very few "celebrity" perfumes I just had to break down & buy. The bottle is so very pretty and worth collecting on its own. Her other scents tend to be too sweet IMO, but this one is perfectly balanced and just beautiful.

This still holds the title of being one of the best celebrity scents out there to this date, up there with Gwen Stefani's "L". It's pleasing to the masses, yet unique at the same time.

My best friend wears this, and it smells so luxurious, clean, and musky on her. I grew up in the south, so magnolias are very near and dear to my heart...but for some reason, I couldn't really smell the magnolia when Sarah would wear it.

I bought it for myself, snagging a 3.4oz for $20 at Tj Maxx. I sprayed several times on me, enough to get a strong cloud. On me, it was a heavenly, intense magnolia/jasmine/tuberose blast, tapered and softened by juicy pear.

It's very floral, but the lotus/pear combination makes it aquatic enough to not go too crazy and overpower.

The main notes I can detect, in order of strongest to weakest for me, are Magnolia, Jasmine, Pear, Tuberose, and Lotus.

It's beautiful, lush, fresh, and perfect in all senses. I feel like I'll definitely be wearing this more in the summer though, because it's so refreshing on a hot day.

Why the heck didn't my bottle has the atomizer bulb or the heart-shaped charms, though? I bought it new! T_T

I love to spray this on after a shower/bath on a balmy summer night. It is pretty and light and just smells clean to me. There are probably many, many that do not like this, and I too usually like perfumes that have a bit more heft to them, but this has a sweet little my place (however small) in my perfume lovers heart.

I have to say that I don't agree with the people saying curious is really strong, I find it to be very light and refreshing with a tad bit of sweetness and vanilla. I find it more easy to wear over fantasy since fantasy tends to give me a headache, I've never gotten a headache from curious.It is very nice and easy on my nose. I can see why some wouldnt like it but I love curious. Only bad thing I can say about curious is whenever you have it for sometime it tends to go bad quickly and the formula turns an icky green color and smells horrible so maybe that is why some dont like it maybe they got a bad bottle of curious at one point. I will say that when you put it on it tends to stay on, not as long as fantasy but it does hold up! I'm having a hard time finding it anymore not even walmart carries it... I just see fantasy and that is a shame... I'm also glad they changed the big bottle atomizer to a regular spray because that bottle was a pain in the butt to spray!

This is a very girly, youthful scent.

Whenever I wear this one I get a very clean, fresh and sweet aquatic scent with magnolias. The magnolia was what really got me on this, it makes me think of what down south would smell like, in the heat of summer. I can't think of too many scents that have magnolia in them which is what makes this so different.

It's not incredibly long lasting, but to me it's very original. I have a mini of this now, but I once had the bottle with the pretty atomizer. I feel bad, it seems like they aren't giving the large bottles with an atomizer anymore.

I really wanted to love this one, being a fan and owner of the Fantasy line, as well as the Radiance line. This one missed the mark for me and my chemistry. Opens as a blast of cheap hairspray, middle remains the same, and eventual (and extremely light) drydown is a soft floral mixed with cheap hairspray. Glad I only bought the purse spray, but really don't think I would ever choose to wear this one over so many other choices in my fragrance wardrobe. Others may have a more positive experience, but for me, I would not recommend.

I'm sorry but this is the worst Britney scent I've smelled. Got it as a gift from a family member and once I got a whiff I instantly got insulted, the scent is very nauseating nauseating,sour bitter like. I even tried a few extra times to wear this and no luck. Cute bottle but collected dust dust and was given to a crazed Britney fans(my little cousin) another celeb fail.

I sampled it and it is a fresh scent, a bit floral, it has no development whatsoever, but overall it isn't the worst out there, like it is better than the watery mess from Justin Bieber ,or the sweet nauseating scents by P. Hilton, in my opinion . It is young, soft, simplistic but ok smelling. For the cheap price it comes at, not a bad buy at all

i just purchased this perfume today. i actually really really like it! ive always wanted this scent and finally got out and bought it. its a very young and girly scent even though in a lot of comments i read they think it smells like old people. i would definitely categorize it into the floral category. it is definitely a very sweet perfume.

im sort of disappointed in the lasting power. i just sprayed a generous amount on my arm an hour ago and the smell is very faint now. also the drydown after an hour is a bit powdery.

the perfume is very fresh and simple. its a very soft scent and wouldnt offend anyone around you. personally i would wear this as a day scent.

I picked this up for a few quid and it's actually quite pretty, it has a coconut water/floral vibe even though coconut isn't listed as an ingredient. Perfect for a summer scent or for work and it doesn't smell harsh or overly synthetic. Yep, it's not sophisticated but sometimes a departure from what I normally wear is fun!

From time to time, I get sick of all the overly juicy and sweet fragrances out there, and that's when I grab my lovely Curious. I really enjoy the fact that this is quite linear and stays floral throughout. Most floral fragrances are ruined with a lot of fruit, which just creates a smell of wilted flowers on a hot, sweaty summer day -- not very elegant.

But, no such worries here!

Pretty, musky, dry flowers with just the smallest amount of sweetness so as not to make it too harsh. Not very complex, not too strict; just a lovely composition for school/office (but don't spray too much!) For me, this is a scent that speaks of independence with a forgiving heart. Kindness, but not naivety.

Lastly, I have to comment on the gorgeous bottle! Dreamy, opaque, ocean blue and cute pink charms. I feel like the princess I always wanted to be as a child whenever I hold this. :-)

Love this perfume.
My favorite Britney perfume of all time.
Makes you feel light, young and carefree.
Very soft and playful.
It wears off pretty musky with traces of sandalwood and lasts about 5 hours on my skin.
Has this bubblegum feel about it.
Overall, a good first Britney perfume from her collection range.
Best to wear during daytime, spring/summer season.

It's cute. That's about it. Completelly agree with pimpnazt (the first review at the bottom). I revieved this scent two years ago and seriously, I'm just kinda done with this smell. I mean, its not that it smells bad, it just gets boring after a while. It would be a great scent for a girl who just entered middle school, but definitely not for anyone over the age of 20. Its cute, but that's it.

This was one of the first Britney fragrances I tried. A Girly fresh fragrance with florals, musk and very aquatic. With a sweet vanilla base note. It really did last for ages and the dry down was a little powdery. I really liked the bottle and spray however several months later I notived it was smelling different on me and the colour had changed. Took it back for a refund then exchanged for something else as the 'bad' smell put me of this fragrance. Haven't worn it since.

I wore this fragrance more in my early 20s...I LOVED it when I first wore it, but I got sick of it eventually. It seems a little young for me now (I am 27). Too sugary-sweet. I think I'd spritz in on again sometime, though, for nostalgia's sake...

I don't really see this as a teen frag, i dont really know how to classify this frag! I blind bought a 50ml of this and i regret..way to floral for me. VERY strong synthetic magnolia. I smell no pear. Does not work well with my chemistry. I tried SO HARD to love this frag. For now the pretty bottle just sits on my dresser. This is a frag for people who loooove florals.

Magnolia hits you straight up with it's beauty, and stays there. Later the sweet pear comes through, but it's still mostly a floral frag. I'm not usually a fan of florals, but this is absolutely lovely and light. Not light as in soft sillage, light as in not a heavy, musty, weighing-down floral. I'm not a fan of Midnight Fantasy, the top Britney frag, I like Curious and Believe most of all. Very girly fragrance, love it.

EDIT: Agree with stcfani too: totally an ocean water twist to it too, in the dry-down, when the pear comes through. What a lovely, complex frag.

Curious was next on my hit list as I am currently collecting the entire Britney collection. I finally received the 50ml (1.7oz) as a gift from my bestfriend. People have described this fragrance as 'Boring' and 'Old Lady Perfume', but every time I smelt this before I owned it, I just loved it. What a perfect way to start off a line of fragrances, with a simple, inoffensive everyday floral. On first spray, it's like an aquatic rush of delicate magnolia petals and juicy, soft pear. As it starts to settle down, it calms into a simple and pretty, springtime floral with a little hint of the lingering pear that's still hanging around to add a little freshness. The base is definitely an accurate summary of what Britney calls 'Vanilla Infused Musk'. It really does just remain a soft, vanilla musk from the base until the moment it disappears. Curious accomplishes just what it aims to do. It doesn't try to be anything it isn't. The vintage style, light blue bottle and the running water-like cap really outlay the fragrance and it really does match perfectly. For what it aims to do, Curious is a perfect, simple, everyday floral for the spring and summertime. I am not surprised this fragrance has been so popular in its time. Perfect example of a classic celebrity fragrance. Winner!

Curious is one of the first perfumes I ever really tried, and liked. I had several sample bottles (probably like five, or more) and well.. Definitely the first one I ever used all up. It's clean, light, and has almost a little.. ocean like smell to me, from what I remember. When I get the chance, I'll definitely buy the full sized. White woods, musk, magnolia, and sandalwood really stand out in this scent, so if that's your sort of flow, definitely go and try it!

‘Curious’ is very special to me because it’s the first perfume of my life. I can still remember how glad I feel when I got it.

I fell in love with the bottle design and the scent. Everything about this perfume is so pretty. It has amazing combination of white flowers and pear. It’s very soft, girly and slightly sexy at the same time. XD

However I heard many negative comments about its poor lasting power. Fortunately, it lasts so long on my skin (over 7 hours) which makes me feel so happy!
The scent is super loveable so that I think it’s perfect for everyday use and suits for every occasion.

Do not believe in any negative comments before you try that perfume by yourself!

I've been looking for a fun floral for quite sometime now, I had Coach Signature for awhile but quickly got tired of it and felt it got too cloying. I received Curious as a birthday gift a couple years ago, but stored it away and never opened it. A few days ago I came across it cleaning out my storage closet and decided to give it a whiff.
This is exactly what I've been looking for! This is a great daytime floral, that's a little bit sweet but not too cloying. The longevity on my skin is also nice. I don't have the atomizer, so bottle is a little bit awkward to spray with, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a simple daytime floral.

p.s. it's one of those fragrances that makes me feel... classy, sexy & romantic. highly recommend curious...

I got this as my first fragrance when I was around 11, and I absolutely loved -and overused- it back then. I saw it in a store and remembered how much I used to love it, and tried it again a while ago and this time I just found it pretty horrible, haha. The magnolia is really strong and synthetic I think... so is the pear. After a few hours the sandalwood was very dominant and it lingered on the skin for quite some time. At 20 years old I can't think of any good occasion to ever wear this again, but its not that bad of a fragrance for a young girl (if she knows proper dosage).

i didnt expect much of this since i usually dont like very florally fragrances. but when i smelled it i was quiet impressed. i would love to purchase this fragrance now as i own nothing like it.

its a sweet floral with a hint of fruity notes which i think is the pear.in the dry down i can also detect the vanilla and very soft musk. i dont really smell any woody notes in particular. this fragrance is so girly, fun and youthful. and i love the bottle with the sprayer! its a very pleasant, inoffensive and soft scent.

Is it just me or does this smell a lot like Eau d'Eden by Cacharel? This perfume always reminds of the time I used to wear Eau d'Eden. I have a mini bottle of Ed and wore it along side Curious and could barely tell the difference between them. Curious just smells more musky and a little cheaper (not necessarily a bad thing, just not high end).

I enjoy wearing Curious at home but not sure if I'm confident enough to wear it out because of the mixed reviews. Some people say it smells cheap but I feel that it's a safe, pretty, inoffensive fragrance. I think it is lovely for what it is but I'm not sure if I'm smelling the same as everyone else. I don't like to offend people with my perfumes.

When I first spray this I get a very strong pear note. It smells just like real pears. Then the florals appear but because I don't know what each floral is supposed to smell like, I don't know if they smell how they're meant to. After about a half hour the musk comes in and is very strong and dry, and sticks around for 5+ hours.. I think I smell vanilla but not like everyone else can smell it. Then again I'm used to Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle vanilla so maybe there is a lot of vanilla in this.

I wish this smelt on me like it does on others; aquatic, fruity floral with vanilla and a touch of musk but I still very much like this for what it is.

Note: I had the 100ml atomiser bottle and it turned yellow so I took it back where I got it and returned it. A few months later I bought a 50ml bottle and have had it for at least 4 years and it's still clear. I keep it in a cool dry place in a cupboard with the body lotion.

The bottle is gorgeous too. It's so much better than a lot of plain bottles on the market. I love as well you can get a 10ml roller ball from Priceline too (Australia).

This is one of those perfumes that you see everywhere, here about a lot and want to love because everyone else does.

I personally hate this one. It smells like lemon water to me. It lasts a long time though which is a plus if it works for you, maybe it's not for me but it's by far in my opinion the worst Britney perfume.

I do find the bottle adorable, though. Adorable enough that I won't throw it out even though I can't wear it.

This is the perfect girly scent! I have bought it first when I was out of perfume and back in the country after a long time. Had to buy something not so pricey, to take with me for vacation, and this was a perfect shot. That's the everyday go to perfume, appropriate for any occasion and time of the year (although I only use it in summer). I really like it and although I have switched to more "high end" brands quite a while ago, I still repurchase this one!

This is a sweetly-refreshing pear/magnolia scent I spray on when I want snob-free, girly instant-gratification; perfect when I don't want anything fussy, posh, or too challenging.
It starts out juicy-floral, and a fuzzy, understated vanillic musk starts to come out as the scent develops. It's well-balanced so none of the notes overpower the others. The magnolia is present throughout and though it's slightly synthetic, I still can't help loving how it smells. It reminds me of childhood floral favorites like Gap Dream. Pretty and uncomplicated.

I wouldn't shell out full-price but since I bought the tester from a discount store for a very low price, I have no complaints other than that the bottle is chunky and the sprayer is extremely stiff and hard to work with. Lasting power is pretty good and one spritz lasts me easily through a workout and a quick shower.

This is a very lovely floral perfume, I'm charmed. I feel soothed and self confident when I wear it. Curious fits to any occasion: work, school, romantic dinner, party. There is something classic and flirty in it's composition. I feel my favourite magnolia and lotus, then comes out soft jasmin and everything is wrapped in light vanilla. Nothing too much, maybe a little soapy, but I love this type of fragrances. I would reccomend it to anyone who likes Versace's Bright Crystal or Beckham's Intimately, they share something similar.

I just cant get enough of this perfume. I like it a lot more than her other fragrances.

This smells very similar to 'Intimately' by David and Victoria Beckham. They have the same feel. So if you don't like that or you find it too strong, then I wouldn't recommend Curious.

It's pure floral, strong and sort of fresh. I cannot distinguish any specific flowers, it has a white floral vibe to it. I can't smell the pear at all.

Very long lasting, one spray is enough. I scrubbed it off my wrist, it wouldn't come off LOL. To me it seems ordinary and like a thousand other perfumes out there.

Best suitable for spring/summer due to its floral freshness. It's not warm nor fruity nor deep, just loud, floral and a bit sweet.

Got this as a gift, but did not expect to like it, however now my bottle is just under halfway gone now. (It was actually given as a gift, for all of the girls in my grade as a going-away present at the end of Grade 12. All of the girls, about [15-20 of us] either liked or loved this perfume.) Me included, liked this as well. Its a fragrance for younger people, but I would say almost anyone can wear it. Its quite fresh and floral, but not overtly so. Its however a very simple scent, and I cant smell much more other than just the vanilla and floral scents in it. Once I use this up, will probably not repurchase and will rather go for her Fantasy line of fragrances- either Fantasy or Midnight, as I prefer sweeter scents. Not a bad perfume at all, though.

I found this scent more classy and refined than the bottle and celebrity herself would suggest. Despite being ultra sweet this had some intensive powdery notes and something sandalwoody on my skin, and was something a bit different from all of the cupcake lollipop diabetes in a spray bottle scents available now. Still way too sweet for my liking (I wear heavy orientals and deep florals) hence was re-gifted.

Such a cute scent! Very casual, perfect for everyday ware since wears very close to the skin. Super feminine...The words yummy, flowery and sweet comes to my mind when wearing this. Like it!

This is a warm, rich, woodsy, feel good scent, that makes me think of a cashmere sweater against my soft scented skin, in the wintertime, with frost on the windowpanes. It's a mild floral, laced with sweet vanilla, and rich woods that has me looking forward to some time with a good book, next to the warmth of a blazing fireplace. Nice longevity and medium sillage.

I find Curious is a perfect perfume for work. It's not offensive or strong-smelling in any way, and it still brings out the light femininity that it portrays so nicely. Mine didn't come with a pump, it's just a regular push-spray design. I've had it for around a year and a half and it still smells as good as when i bought it. And no green chunks :)

I got this as a gift from my parents when they visited the US and I don't like it because it makes me too conscious of other people in a bad way. It feels like I'm bothering others with its strong smell.

I don't know about the cleanser smell but its really flowery and feminine. Its something I might grow to like but unfortunately I think its not appropriate to be used in the tropics even though some people here wrote that its for summer. I just imagine giving people headaches with this.

I still keep it though since I like the bottle and its a gift. I've kept it so long that the perfume changed color, its yellowish now.

This is absolutely one of the best celebrity perfumes I have ever smelled. And it's not just a teen perfume!

A deep powdery, musky perfume.
I feel sexy and confident wearing this.

Mine was good for about 3 years, then it loosed staying power, but still smells the same.

Really good for the price!

My first fragrance! <3 I disagree with people calling it cheap and comparing it to other products. It smells unique to me, and is one of the only few perfumes I know that smells light but STILL has good sillage. Lasting power is good too, and the sillage and lasting power is often underestimated with curious. Has a delicious smell and draws lots of compliments, and has a very good looking bottle. Prefer the atomizer over the normal one though. A well deserved 9/10

Yo creo que el perfume Curious de Britney es de corte algo juvenil entre 15 a 35 años no mas yo creo que es un perfume bastante agradable de notas florales bastante limpias bueno como para ir a la universidad...siento que tiene un corte algo sport o para trabajar pero para gente joven sin que las notas sean asfixiantes....de tipo atemporal mas inclinado hacia primavera verano donde el perfume se le puede sacar mejor partido...bueno para ir al antro o de shopping con las amigas.

This was my very first perfume that I used to wear in high school. Deliciously sweet and innocent, and brings back memories every time I smell it! Would recommend to young girls or women who enjoy vanilla-based or sweet, floral scents. Boys go crazy over this perfume.. One of my all-time favourites!

I found this fragrance to be average, maybe a little below. definitely nothing special but still an almost pleasant smell at first. However i found that the initial scent never lasted very long and began to smell fake and synthetic.
Maybe a good first perfume for the 11 - 14 market.

this fragrance just proves you get what you pay for. CHEAP.
Some may find that alittle harsh but it is just my honest opinion, which I think reviews should be.

My aunt had this one, and when I first saw it I instantly knew I had to have it sprayed on me.

FLIRTY. FUN. GIRLY. Three words that describe this fragrance. It's basically Ms. Britney Spears herself on a bottle - something you'd like to keep with you all day long. The magnolia notes were right on point, plus the tuberose, which makes it more exciting. I just loved it so much I had to spray it many times on my shirt LOL. 5/5 definitely. Packaging is very cute too :)))

I had this when I was 18 and I still have one bottle! So after 5 years of wearin this I still love it. As I remember this is my second bottle of it.

It used to be my party fragrance. I just makes me feel like a party girl! And the funny thing is, that I'm not a party girl. I'm married now and even as sitting here and writing this I feel like I need a longdrink.

On my skin this is pure floral. No fruits.Not sweet at all. Even I've used this one since a teenager I've never thought this as a teenage perfume. It was my gateway scent from fruitiness to the floral world. In other words, my firs FLORAL perfume. This is grownup, clean, fun, beautiful, heavy scent. quality is very good too!

My first Britney perfume and I love it! My work colleague was wearing it and I said "What's the gorgeous smell!" I was surprised when she said "Curious" as I have never been a fan of celeb scents after a horrible experience with JLo's Glow! I bought a small bottle and have emptied it already and have now bought a bigger one! As for it being a young perfume, I'm over 50 and think its great for every day wear and always gets compliments. I love fruity florals and this has just the right depth for me without overpowering - last about 5 hours on my skin with one small squirt so quite long lasting. Would recommend for any woman who wants to feel young, fresh and sweet!

Never thought Id say this but this is a beautiful frag!! Im not even a fan of fruity scents (they tend to smell well cheap and sickning sweet on me). But this is a real modern masterpiece, i cant see anyone not liking this the price is right the longevity on me and silliage are superb. Im very surprised at the quality of this scent its a very happy frag to me and clean smelling I actually love the blend of the peach!! It smells fresh and spunky and very pretty. Young yes a bit, but as a fourty year old woman Ifind myself felling pretty spunky sometimes, maybe more then some girlies half my age and for those special moments I find this perfect. LOL

Two thumbs up for this one!!

This is the best of the Britneys that I've tried. It's effervescent in a gloriously fake fruity way but with an underlying musky base making it neither overly sweet or 'fresh'which is how modern scents usually end. I sprayed this on and happily walked around the shops without shame, and I'm 40! Nice enough for the summer and in a cute little bottle. Great pressie for a teen

I'm wearing this one a lot recently. I just got it and I'm liking it. It is really different from anything I have. I usually hate white floral, and in fact have few floral perfumes in my collection, but I love this perfume. I also LOVE the bottle. It is super feminie and flirty, and it's the most gorgeous blue color. Some reviews say it is a young scent, but I'm in my forties and I don't feel silly wearing this. It's a fun and feminine scent.

Edit as of 5-25-2014: I reach for this every spring, and end up wearing it off/on all summer. It really can be worn anytime though. It's unlike anything else in my collection, and I'm not a floral lover, but this just continues to "wow" me.

I got this when I was in highschool. And yeah! Love it.

The colour, the bottle, the atomizer. It looks so vintagely glam! I like it a lot! The fact that it is in baby blue with lil pink dangling, was sooo cutely precious.

When I spritz it, it made me feel crispy clean! Like the smell of flower after rain. Like a morning dew too!

Really recommend this for a young girls who wanna find their first perfume. Just totally good perfume for every day use. Just love!

Nice floral fragrance, little bit boring, last for about 2-3 hours (4 heavy sprays) which is longer than my other BS perfume (circus fantasy). I bought this thinking it was something else though, i tried one BS scent one long time ago and loved it, still dont know what it was though .. this one is ok for summer and i will use the bottle up (cute design!) but wont buy a new one.

I'm not a fan of Britney as such, but I LOVE this perfume. I find it to be subtle with just the right amount of glamour and sexiness for daytime. Underneath the fruit and creaminess I find there's quite a smoky undertone which is irresistible. I also think it's suitable for all ages and very accessible as someone's first perfume. It's quite natural, very clean and extremely pretty, I can't get enough of it.

My first celebrity fragrance purchase! A lot of wonderful memories of my early teenage years :) I adore this scent. It isn't too sweet or in your face, and the staying power is a force to be reckoned with. This can be a blessing or a curse if you spray too much, as it can be quite strong with more than three spritzes.

It is quite sweet but is grounded by the magnolia and pear. I know pear is sweet but not a red berry and caramel sugary sweet like fantasy, a natural and fresh sweetness that is very youthful and feminine.

I do not wear this to work since I am past 30 now and do not want to put anyone off, but this is a safe fragrance and I do wear it during the day for going shopping or to run errands since it does make me feel young and free spirited :)

Nostalgia in a gorgeous aquamarine bottle! Love it!

Warning: this perfume will change to a greenish color in the bottle when it goes old, then it will smell like rubbing alcohol so store this somewhere cool and dark...for some reason Curious goes off quicker than most perfumes so I always buy small bottles since this is not an everyday perfume for me.

Curious is a very unique, distinctive smelling perfume and I really couldn't compare it to anything else on the market, and certainly not to a lot of other celebrity scents which tend to be more generic and commonplace smelling. To me it smells exotic, thanks to the magnolia and lotus, a little sweet, clean and very feminine. I much prefer it to most of Britney's other perfumes which smell generically fruity and sweet (although I do also really like Radiance!), and it's a million miles better than the clinical, weird smelling Believe! The magnolia, lotus, pear, vanilla and musk in Curious blend so well to create a bright, fresh, clean, sweet and semi-tropical scent which is just lovely.

On my skin Curious lasts for quite awhile - 10 hours and more - so the staying power is great. I've got both an EDP perfume and also a few shimmer perfume sticks and I find that the perfume sticks last longer on my skin though than the perfume. Either way, it lasts much longer than some much more expensive perfumes and smells great so there are no complaints from me!

Oh, as for the age range this perfume's appropriate for - don't believe the reviews that say nobody over the age of 18 or whatever should wear this. I think this would be fine on women of any age (and I'm well beyond my teens!) and anyway - age is just a number and you shouldn't feel you can't wear something just because you don't fit into a certain age range! If something works on you and makes you happy then be independent and free spirited enough to just wear it!!

This is not exactly a head-turner. It is a soapy, white floral that doesn't evolve much after its initial offering. In humid weather, it is suggestive of a sultry Louisiana evening near a blooming magnolia tree. It also has something crisp and oceanic about it. And that's all she wrote. Not bad for a two-note fragrance.

omg.. this perfume has been my favorite since i was 15 or 16 years old. When it first came out i saw it on a commercial and i told my mom i wanted it because i grew up listening to Britney Spears and wanted to try this because the bottle looked so beautiful and i just started getting into perfumes and make up. So i got it for christmas and from my boyfriend at the time and i absolutely loved it! It is my favorite fragrance from Britney Spears, following In control and Believe. It is amazing smelling and i know some girls do not like it, but i LOVE it! I can never be without it. I am on my fifth bottle and i have two 3.4 oz bottles right now. I actually bought the first one at booths corners for almost $30 and then found the second one on scentedmonkey for only $7.00, a tester, but came with the charms, box, and had no cap cus it's a tester. I think they made a mistake having it for $7.00 for a 3.4oz one because they had changed it months later to about $22.00 when i went to stock up on some more, but that's still cheap. I really recommend if you haven't already, to give this perfume a chance. Everyone has a different taste, but i love it and from what my fiancee and other people say, they love it too! :)

I went ahead and purchased a mini of this along with some shower gel (total was $12 at TJ Maxx) because I sniffed the tester at a drugstore and found it very pleasant. I really do like the scent but find that it completely disappears on me after only a couple of hours (or less, depending on how active my day is), no matter how much I apply, and even if I combine it with the shower gel beforehand. I love the magnolia/pear blend, which are about all the notes I get from CURIOUS, and that's fine with me. I love a perfume that's not too busy. I don't regret my purchase but I doubt I'll ever buy it again, based solely on its poor lasting power.

Light. Watery. Fruity floral.

Most of all I feel the juicy pear note, the romantic cyclamen and the watery lotus note with the tuberose and the vanilla notes sweetness.

Not a fan of fragrances by celebrities, but I think that this fragrance is nice enough. The staying power is good enough, too. The best of Britney's fragrances by far, imho.

I don't like this, there is just nothing in it that stands out. It has no personality, and it is completely forgettable and unnoticable. It would be best for those kind of women who want to wear something that only they can smell. For women who find perfume offensive and just want to smell clean.

The bottle for Curious is very nice- pretty colour, pretty shape. The fragrance, however, I find really overwhelming and headache-inducing. The floral notes (most likely the jasmine and lotus) I find way too strong, and the vanilla just intensifies the scent.
For some reason, it reminds me of Revlon Outrageous Shampoo. It has that same in-your-face strong floral smell.

I'm completely obsessed about this one! It's about feeling playful, confortable, fun, happy, clean, simple. And the box and bottle are so cute, though they have changed the original beautiful one to a simple box like Circus Fantasy.

I wish it could last longer, cause in 2 hours it's very hard to feel.

A watery white floral very simple and light for all-day use. Not sweet or fruity like the Fantasy line. The longevity, as I see (first day using) is about 3-4 hours, and projection close to the skin. Almost unissex, it has a ''hairspray'' scent feeling. For all ocasions. Nice Bottle and box.

I liked this perfume at first when I bought it blind. As time went on , I found it bland and boring as I experimented with better fragrances. I rarely wear this any more. It's not that it isn't a good perfume, it is. It smells good on me. But it doesn't last, and it lacks "oomph". It does not have a unique character to set it apart from other fragrances. I also have Fantasy, and the two scents smell a lot alike to me. I prefer scents that are mroe unique and have more staying power.

I have always loved this bottle, and recently found it at our local drug store (100ml for $17 CDN). I thought the eau de parfum would come with the pretty blue spritzer, but alas, on opening the box, no fancy blue spritzer. Still, the bottle is gorgeous and looks great on my dresser. The scent, however, reminds me of a good salon quality hair product rather than perfume. Pleasant, but blah--boring! So decorate my dresser with it I will, but I won't be using it.

This is the only Britney Spears' perfume that I own. It is light and fresh, perfect for spring and summer, although I think you can wear it all year round. I'm not good with describing floral notes but this perfume is not heavy floral at all! It's fun and smells so clean. My mom also wears it as well. Too bad it does not last very long on me(3 hours top -edp), and did I mention that the bottle is absolutely gorgeous<3

While I'm a fan of some celebrity fragrances, I find that they are either a hit or a miss. This was a huge miss for me. It smells like an odd combination of sweet tarts and grandma florals, and not in any good way. The notes were very misleading for me as I don't find this to be a soft, feminine scent at all. It comes on as a cloying, floral, musky smell that I cannot imagine would suit many people.

On the upside, it does have some powerful staying power. I tried scrubbing this off with soap and water and after several hours its still going strong, which is good news for those who do enjoy it.

I am not a fan of this, but that's probably because I am obsessed with Britney's sweeter scents. I prefer the Fantasy line (except Circus- gross and soapy!) because they are more gourmand/bakery/fruity. I guess if you wanted to get into Britney perfumes but you aren't someone who loves sweet scents, you would want to go for this. It is more fresh, floral, powdery. I did not like it at all though.

One of my top five favorites, but definitely near the top.
It just has a very alluring quality to it for me, and captures the innocence and playfulness at the same time of its name "Curious."
My husband goes wild when he smells it on me (olfactory nostalgia will do that for ya), but even if there were no wonderful times, memories, places you'd visited to associate it with, it's just the fragrance to start making memories for the first time.

I don't care for "Fantasy" (I smelled like straight-up cotton candy, which isn't such a bad thing, unless you don't wanna smell like a five year old girl with cotton candy stuck to her face and smiling cheesily at you, haha). I know plenty of girls who like it just fine, though.

And then "Believe" is great stuff. Smells like you're eating a piece of candy in the middle of the forest.

Curious is actually one of the first perfumes i ever owned to it has sentimental value for me (unfortunately my bottle had the bulb atomizer and ended up crystallizing)
Curious is soft and sweet, fresh and playful- really love it. However I have to say the perfume stick smells even better than the perfume- it adds this creamy depth that really makes the Louisiana magnolia shine-- this has to be the queen of magnolia scents! love it :)

I have this perfume and I don't really like it that much anymore. I first got it when I was 14 and I am now 19. I got a new bottl about a year ago and I;ve worn it maybe twice. To me theres a sharp strong very unsettling smell to it that just makes me feel uncomfortable when I wear it. THough I do find that the dry down can be nice.

I used to like this scent when it first came out. Now to me it just smells and reminds me of chemicals in the top note and it gives me a headache. I love some of the other scents though.

Very pleasantly surprised by this. I smelled this years ago and thought it smelled cheap, but came back and visited this again and I think it smells quite nice!!! A great day-time scent thats not too fruity like some other celebri-scents. A tad young smelling but overall I like this and is very wearable
There's something oddly cozy smelling to me about it

Starts with a blast of a distinctive lipstick note that I love..then comes the patchouli, I know it's not listed but it's most obvious to my nose, it's very unique it's that kind of etheral patchouli smell (possibly thanks to the jasmine mixing with the patchouli and magnolia) that is in Vitoria Secrets Sexy Hot (which is now discontinued), then the gentle pear and the vanilla come out to play taming the lipstick etheral patchouli smell to a tranquil but sexy level . Its now begining to get creamy, now the magnolia realy makes her presence known adding a easily detectable floral note , the cyclaminn comes in to spicy up the magnolia . The tuberose is all it needs to sweeten things up without making it syrupy, I can now detect the musk and the woods, I believe it's a synthetic sandlewood which is fine by me, it's more creamy and not so loud, the blonde woods help to keep it light but interesting.. All notes are now blended so nicely as if to dance with one anotehr in a playful yet uniquely sexy yummy mix. It stays this way for an hour or two, then you are left with a slightly powdered, creamy vanilla blonde woods drydown..

I no longer detect any sandlewood. Very nice, just doesnt last long enough, but for the price, it's really not too bad. Id definently say this is far more intruiging than another of brits gourmand scents. This is yummy yes,but not gourmand. no, this wont get mistaken for a piece of vanilla frosted cake, which I;'m so bored of. Overal all a thumbs up. Best suited for a teen age girl to early 30's or someone in the early to mid stages of developing their perfume pallets

While I find it very similar to VS sexy hot.. it's softer more wearable, where the VS is a little loud, which I don't mind.. (the waterlilly helps to keep it lighthearted and ozonic) but this one is definently more versatile more wearable

The bottle is repugnant, looks like a plastic genie bottle, but the mini is cute :D

I really found Curious to be a nice fruity Floral and unique to any other scent I had ever smelled.
I can totally see why some compare this to a shampooy scent though but I kind of like that about this one actually.
I think I mostly detected the Pear at first sniff and as it drys down a bit,the florals seem to pop out.
A great perfume for the younger crowds but even though I'm 34...I want to smell young and fresh like Curious offers too :):)
I need to get myself some of this again..:)

I absolutely adore Curious, I'm onto my third bottle. My 100ml bottle spoiled part way through and turned yellow, which smelt utterly disgusting. I blame the atomizer. Yes it's gorgeous, but unnecessary.

To me, Curious is a fresh, clean white floral. I get magnolia with a hint of jasmine and pear, which dries down to a musk tinged with vanilla. Definitely very feminine and pretty. It used to drive my ex-boyfriend absolutely wild every time I wore it.

I've also found it appeals to a wide range of ages. Even my 50-something mother has a bottle :)

I had this fragrance for about three months. I was truly disappointed in it on the whole. I take quite a long time to go through an entire bottle of perfume and sometimes will go for weeks on end without wearing a certain scent. After maybe four days of total non-use the perfume had separated and created little floaters in the bottle. At first I just sorta half spirled the contents and tried to use it again. The first three sprays smelled like rubbing alcohol--the sprays thereafter smelled like spoiled juice and rubbing alcohol. Needless to say I was very disappointed and will probably never buy this perfume again.

This is my FAVORITE Britney fragrance! It's perfect! I will purchase many back-ups of this perfume :) It is white floral, watery, clean, woodsy. Lasting power is great, spray some on my neck, wrists in the morning & I can still smell it the next morning! I think this is the best fragrance for any girl at any age, occasion & season. The exact description of this perfume is spot on! An exhilarating white floral accented with Louisiana Magnolia and wrapped in the sensuality of vanilla-infused musk. ♥LOVE IT! ;)

10/10 :)

I used to wear this all the time as a teenager after my friend bought a bottle and I fell in love with it.
It is the kind of scent that would make me feel excited.

My bottle got old and has started to smell strange so I can't remember the exact scent, but I still like it a lot, even though I probably wouldn't wear it now as I would associate it with my younger self.

Curious is not at all sweet like the 'Fantasy' line, it is more feminine and floral.

Very cute, pretty and youthful.

This isn't sweet on me in the least. It's flowery and musky. Light yet deep It melds well with my skin. I think it's very classy and classic yet fresh. It doesn't smell cheap. The longevity is okay not as good as other perfumes that i own but it lasts at least 2 - 3 hours. It settles down rather quickly, like within the first 15 minutes and after that it's beautiful. I love it and i love the old school perfume bottle.

it is a love and hate perfume. I find it too flowery and fruity. It is a powerful perfume it stays on for a really long time. It reminds me of a perfume my elementary school teacher used to wear. That was years ago. so yea it brings back childhood memories. I think it is good clubbing perfume just because its that strong.

In Curious the magnolia, lotus, and MUSK stand out the most to me. I do not get ANY fruity notes at all. Not one bit sweet to me either, just a very refreshing a happy mix of flowers and musk. I wore this at the beach and it suited the hot air and salty water perfectly. It always makes me think of my skin being just a touch sunburned and having that lovely "spent the whole day in the sun on the beach, then got glammed up for a nice dinner" feeling. And the price and availability are great!

Curious has a very light and sweet floral smell.
This doesn't really smell like perfume, but more like a "freshly-just-showered" smell.
It's perfect when looking for a subtle, clean scent.

P.S. The first time I smelled Curious was when my friend wore it. If it weren't for the fact that I saw Curious on her dresser, I wouldn't have guessed she was wearing perfume, but had just recently showered.

I really like this perfume. I bought it a few years back for the first time and no matter what I keep repurchasing it. It's very clean, floral and musky. I don't think it's that sweet so you won't be getting a killer headache by wearing it. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a bit of a change from sugary sweet perfumes (not that there's anything wrong with sweet perfumes!)

I never really expected to like Curious, as I'm not a huge floral fan, I'm more of a fruity gal. I do like this stuff though, it's not overly floral on me, but I don't get much vanilla or musk either, it's very light. I get a little pear in the beginning and some nondescript florals, then very very light musk and a teenie tiny dab of vanilla. I tend to like most of Britney's scents, Fantasy is a favorite, but it is very strong and overpowering on me even if applied lightly, I doubt I could overdo Curious and even if I did it evaporates rapidly on my perfume eating skin, I'm only an hour in and it's fading fast. I think I'll be getting one of those tiny bottles of Curious I see at Kohl's or Wallymart just to have some on hand for when the mood strikes, plus those teenie tiny bottles are precious, I have one of Fantasy and love it! :0)

Update: we're about 8 hours in and I can still smell it, unfortunately it has morphed into mens aftershave, so Curious is now a big fat NO for me. Had to scrub it off.

This is more like a body mist to me, suitable for spraying on after a shower to retain the clean feeling for longer, just like I would CLEAN's shower fresh.The bottle represents this fragrance well.

It's light and inoffensive, feminine and watery. It's not the scent I wear to be sophisticated or when wanting to smell like I'm wearing a nice perfume, but rather one I wear to smell clean and put together.

It has a floral scent with pear bringing some fruit to it.

This reminds me of me in my mid teens, being a fan of Britney in her cute, girly innocent phase. This scent reflects her at that stage but not the current one.

Britney Spears Curious well my ex girlfriend had this perfume, i loved very much of it, its so sweet smells like cotton candy then settles to a warm feeling of flower and fruits, then my mother was CURIOUS what my then girlfriend was wearing i told her Britney Spears "Curious", she asked me if i can buy her a bottle for mothers day.

I adore this fragrance. It's a happy, flowery, feminine comfort scent for me. It smells like a gentle summer breeze carrying the dreamy notes of fresh magnolia and honeysuckle. My skin rarely brings out the flowers in fragrances, instead highlighting woods and the deeper notes, so I'm thrilled that I can finally smell like a garden. I think this is a beautiful fragrance and I wish I could find others that are similar - both in scent and in the way it works with my skin. So far no luck. I never tire of Curious. (Great name, too!)

I bought this blind and i was expecting something rather similar to DKNY Pure - by the reviews.
Well, i tried very hard but can't detect any similarity.
But i like it eventually. Soapy-clean-flowery low-key fragrance. I normally wear it at home or just going out with the kids to the play ground, wearing t-shirt, jeans and my pink sneakers. Just casual and fresh not femme fatale. Stays long on clothes and scarf and smells even better.

WHAT? no patchouli listed here? hmmm, odd. Tried this the other day... and I really like it, I swore there was some kind of odd patchouli in it that I adored so much..that was new to my sniffer, but I see no patchouli listed. Is it perhaps the cyclmain? Not sure but it has something that I love. Upon initial blasts I get heaps of this addictive scent it slowly begins to tame down, but never all together goes away.

I have the small bottle and let's say it's not up to par with the fantasy bottles..this one feels like cheep plastic and the design is kind of silly, like a flying saucer, lol...but I'm thinking the larger bottle with atomizer surely has to be nicer

A little to youngish for me, but that special note I cant decifer makes me love it

Lastly, to Britney ... I think when you shaved your head, you should have rocked that bald head, you have the face to pull it off..(that would have been so punk rock, like giving a big F U To the sugar pop industry) but instead ...you went out and bought a wig >.> ehhh....that was more disapointing than the design of this bottle. .... I understand there's money at stake, but I think in the long run you may have lost some fans but gained even more :p We now return to your regularly scheduled program.....lol

This is by far the best of the Britney line!

I've always LOVED Britney's perfumes, and this was the only one I hadn't tried. I got a mini bottle from Walmart to test it.

Now usually, I only like really sweet fragrances. So at first, I didn't like this. But after a couple times using it, it's grown on me. It's probably one of the only not-very-sweet fragrances I like! It's nice for formal things like Church or everyday things like school.

I wouldn't recommend this if you like really sweet fragrances. This is definitly floral.

An initial youthful dance of sweet pear and vanilla, alongside floral pangs of lotus and magnolia, is gradually slowed down to something more deep.

Something more mature.

And it's this bittersweet, woody symphony of musk and jasmine that truly make this a fragrance for the woman with attitude.

Though targeted at twenty-somethings, I believe the beautiful drydown of this scent could be enjoyed by women of all ages at any time of the day, any day of the year.

If this would stay somewhere near the top (that is after the alchohol wears off) to middle, I would love this..and if it contained patchouli and / or incence it would be amazing. But sadly it does not and it very quickly reaches it's base then begins fading immediately.

I was surprised to smell a floral perfume rather than the usual gourmand perfumes in Britney's line. I usually like vanilla, foody-type sprays, but this one is very nice and smells elegant. I could see myself wearing this for special occasions or a night out. :) I wish the atomizers were still around though for aesthetics.

I saw it on a shelf in a perfume store, which doesn't happen often here and wanted to try it.
There is so much fuss around celebrity scents.
I cannot find them very easily where I live and I don't miss them, because I tried many while traveling abroad and I was always disappointed. I wonder why so many famous people want to launch a perfume with their name, then 2, then 10...
So far I tried Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue, Celine DIon (her first one was acceptable), Hillary Duff, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and ehm...Jenna Jameson.
Britney S. makes no exception. How many perfumes by now? Is she so incredibly inspired?
Curious has a nice bottle, a little tacky but pleasant to see, happy and probably ironic.
The scent inside the cute bottle...well, a tragedy relieved only by the fact that it is very short-lived.
I smell a strange mix of fruity notes like weak tangerine and synthetical flower. No way I can wear this. I smell this one or probably similar ones on so many young girls, so I guess it is appreciated and in any case it is not strong nor disturbing. I wonder if it changes according to body chemistry.
I also tried Fantasy and it's even worse.

This baby was the one that made me find Fragrantica and get hooked on perfumes badly.
So the story goes: few years back when I saw Ms Britney video for song circus I thought "oh my, the poor gal is doing much better, she is looking wayyy much better that the usual trainwreck look she usually pulls off" and she was spraying curious on herself, and I instantly loved how the bottle looked, and a few days later, without having little to none expectations asked for a spray of that perfume on a paper strip in my local store.
It was like magic! I couldn't stop sniffing that strip, I put it in and out of my pocket numerous times ad later when I came home I sniffed it for several days until I couldn't get anything off the paper. I knew I had to get it, because it was pure magic to my nose. Only I had to wait a few months till christmas, because I was really broke at that time and this was my first "expensive" perfume (I know It's not expensive at all, but still anything I had before was way cheaper). So I got a 50ml bottle without that lovely pump, but now knowing how it breaks and spoils the perfume I'm actually glad.
So, I have used it up in about 6months (I guess it was the only perfume I owned at that time) and I really tried to save it up, being really broke then.
The problem with this fume, like everyone else has written, it does go green, and it becomes sharper, so I guess It's very suseptible to light, so now I have the curious heart version for several years now, and it's as good as new.
Also I think that this fume smells better on clothes than on skin, because on clothes it stayes linear and beautiful, gentle, sweet, subtile, lovely and magical On skin it's slighty more sharp and does not last on my super dry skin.
Since falling in love with it I have sniffed more serious stuff and my taste has matured, but this baby is still my love, and I think it's really nicely composed, way better than many fruity florals out there. I guess it works for me because it's more on the floral side than on the fruity one and I think the pear note ads that little cute kick (as in Annick Goutal's Pettite Cherie, I know they are diffrent, but for me they have someting alike).
So I'd recommend the pink bottle version for better hmm, perfume shelf life or try to hide it from the lihght, because when it does get green it really smells nasty. I know it becaue I sniffed one very green one in a frift store.
Really beautiful scent I'd recomend for everyone (the florals keep it from being too childish) I can even imagine it on a lovely lady in her 50ties, with a white long beachy dress and passing a wink to a hansome stanger. Lovely lovely baby!

I think Curious is a perfect blend of sweet meets floral. The lasting power is so-so, but if you have the body lotion or a smaller bottle to take with you out on the town.

Curious also lingers after the perfume dies down. I was wearing it once while shopping around for houses with my dad and his girlfriend and she was standing a few feet behind me and told me I smelled delicious.

I also think the bottle is really cute. I have the 3.4 oz bottle with the atomizer thing and I've never had any problems with the liquid turning green or the atomizer breaking and I've had it for over a year. Reading about how it could spoil because the atomizer doesn't really protect the perfume and secure the scent I started putting the plan silver cap (It came on top of the bigger bottles when purchased) back on it just to be safe.

I think this would be more of an everyday perfume rather than a special evening out or anything. It won't keep up with your activities but it will linger with you throughout the day.

An initially very feminine scent which does not last very long and becomes quickly forgetable..

0-15 Mins- Vibrant and female, as a man, this smells incredibly feminite. 20 - 35 age smell. Projection very good

15 mins - 1.5 hour - Settles to a very average smell which is ok. Projection approx 2-3 foot. No note takes over, instead a very female scent is all I can think of

1.5 hour - 4 hours - No projection

4-7 hours - Drydown becomes more spicier and could be Unisex, only at this point

Not for me and one which will not stick in the memory for either good or bad reasons

Curious is one of the Britney Spears’ perfumes that I actually find easy to wear (in comparison with some high-voltage sugary flankers introduced year after year). The start is really watery (not aquatic sports perfume-y, thank god), feminie, with the magnolia wrapped with fresh discreet pear scent. It is sweet, but in a nice, girl-next-door sweet way if not over-applied.

After a while, it gets warmer with the vanilla-y notes coming in, but it’s not that in-your-face cake-y vanilla, it’s soft, smooth, and a good supporting background vanilla for the floral notes. Somehow it makes me think of high school, comfy beanbags and carefree girls (vice versa, high school girls do wear Curious a lot in my memory).

I find the final dry down a bit unstructured or too wishy washy, since it’s a washed down and warmed up, slightly stale and dustier version of the mid phase. However, since at this stage, people can barely smell it unless they press their noses against your skin, Curious gets my forgiveness.

Overall, it’s one of the celebrity perfumes I find nice to wear.

I just fell in deep like with this! I am more of a fan of In Control Curious. This scent smells like Gummy Bears and Jasmine and Lotus. Lovely! Curious smells similar and almost the same as Love At first Glow and Live luxe by J lo and Paris Hilton. Since Curious came before I feel like it has more umph! has more of a kick and lasting power. I just spritz some around 2 hrs ago and it still lingers quite strongly!! I am considering buying a new bottle since this belongs to my mother :)

I bought a 1 oz. bottle of this at TJ Maxx for $10. I remember I really liked this fragrance back in high school; it was really popular for a while. I still do like it; it is a very inoffensive floral with a strong hint of magnolia. A little linear, but still a good scent to reach for on a ho-hum day.

A few months back I received a sample of this. Back then I loved the smell of it. Just recently I sprayed it again, and now I am not so sure. For me, curious is a fun perfume, but sometimes its quite overpowering. Its long lasting, which I guess is a big plus, considering the over perfumes I use these days don't last as long...

I read a review saying that Curious smells exactly like Stella by Tocca. Since Stella is pretty much my favorite perfume ever, I had to buy some curious when I saw a 1.7 oz bottle for $16 @TJMaxx. I have to say the resemblance between the 2 perfumes is quite striking. After the initial spray, and the blood orange disappears from Stella (5ish minutes), they truly do smell alike. However, I think Curious might last a little longer. It's hard for me to admit, but yes, Curious is very nice. I do like Stella more, but it's hard for me to say I would pay the price difference. I guess we'll see when the time comes

Curious was the first perfume I ever owned and over the years I have owned several bottles. Over all this perfume is pretty good and has a nice fresh floral scent. However, one thing I did notice about this perfume is the scent has changed during the last couple of years !!! It seems that it has been watered down, which is unfortunate because the original scent was a tad bit better.

this perfume is more mature than the fantasy-series and it is not as sweet as the fantasies. it is more floral. it is nice but i like the fantasy perfume a lot more as they are more special and not so common concerning the smell.

This is one of my favorites =) the bad thing about it is the , pump that comes with the 3.4 fl.oz bottle, it gets clogged very easily and damages the perfume, I'm happy now with my 1.7 fl.oz bottle . The scent is very subtle I smell the flowers on it and after some hours a pleasant vanilla. I think it can be worn every day without being annoying.

I had this perfume as a mini but it was another that I found too sweet so I sent it to my sister-in-law and she loved it. It was a couple of years ago so I can't really give a good description of the scent.

I used to really passionately hate this, I actually described it as the perfect eau de hooker for years!
(I'm very sorry and do now take it back)

It was just so strong and overpowering to me!

My sister and my best friend at the time loved it straight away, so I was surrounded by clouds of the stuff, all the time!

Then my sister sprayed some the other day for the first time in about 3 yrs, and I was very curious (excuse the pun) about what the smell was, I was quite (really) liking it, oh no!

I think maybe because I didn't smell it straight from the bottle and wasn't being drowned or suffocated by it, I could actually smell the more delicate notes, and it didn't burn my nostrils.

It's got almost a familiar and comforting smell to me now and I don't know when or how this has happened, I spray it and my head wanders straight to the parks and summers of my teen years. Possibly I now associate it with my sister and friend and good times! :)

Anyway I feel like the ultimate turncoat because I am now considering buying a bottle (and probably will) for the summer and the the occasional whiff of nostalgia!

This is hands down one of my all time favorites-it's funny as celebs usually copy other scents but when I smelled the original Juicy Couture for the first time I thought "Hey-this smells like Curious".Curious is MUCH softer and rounder than JC though.I've loved this since it first came out but couldn't wear it for years as it reminded me of an ex who gave me a bottle(darn scent memory!).
I recently got a mini bottle just to see if it still made me feel weird(definitely did not) and fell in love with it all over again-I then went out and got a large bottle just a few days later.
Being from the South it really does capture it's floral scents well-the smell seems very familiar to my nose:kinda just smells like home:).This will always be in my rotation-a soft,creamy aquatic floral that stays close to the skin yet you catch a whiff now and then....it's sublime.

Bought it for my daughter but loved how it smelled. I used to offer her trades of spritzes of perfumes and when we did, I always went for this one.

It's light, but lasts. You smell it on your clothes still lingering when you're doing your dirty laundry days later. Not a seduction perfume, it's great for daily wear and any public occasion.

I had this when it first came out. I used to wear it all the time, I never got sick of it. I remember it being very refreshing, youthful and flirty smelling. It lasted a very long time too and I usually received many compliments when I wore it. So, I don't know, maybe I'll revisit it one day.

Ok, so I went to the local TJ Maxx and got a super deal on the body lotion and shower gel. Now I remember why I loved it so much and why it was my signature fragrance for a while. It brings back nice memories and it really is a wonderful scent. I could see myself wearing it year round even though when I originally had it, I wore it in the summer months only. Overall, I'm glad I revisited it. :)

I finally broke down and bought this after sniffing it over a year ago. I consider it an aquatic floral, not because it evokes rain, rivers, or the ocean, but because it reminds me of a lush garden on a humid evening, moisture hanging thick and heavy in the air. A celebrity fragrance always has to work harder to impress, but in this case, I couldn't care less, it just smells good. I am tired of cupcake perfumes, high end or discount - this is a lovely change.

I love this fragrance!
I got this fragrance when it was launched in 2004 as a birthday present form my parents. I love everything about it, the box and the bottle are awesome. And I even got a free gift, a small britney bag.
The first moment that I sprayed this fragrance, I felt so elegance and classy. No wonder it won the best fragrance in 2004 and the best women's fragrance on 2005. Its worth it. I give it 10/10!
Great job Britney! :)

Because it's a celebrity scent this might go under the radar for some. Let me tell you you should give this one a try. It is distinct and original and I like it. Some might be put off because this almost smells like body lotion. This is a clean scent great for summer and spring time when it's scorching hot out and you want to smell like you just stepped out of the shower. It's great for romantic nights too. It's very refreshing and has great staying power. This is not what it used to be since this I believe has been reformulated because I remember smelling a more prominent magnolia note. It is now more lotion like and not as floral. The original release smells quite similar to Stella by Tocca, so if you want to try something similar to what the original Curious smelled like then give this a try!

I hate the whole concept of 'celebrity' fragrances but I do try not to let that stop me giving them a chance, because every so often I prove myself wrong.

Unfortunately, that's not the case with this one. It confirms all my prejudices about the celebrity fragrance market.

No offence to those who like it - it's good that we all have different tastes - but to me Curious is just indistinctly sweet and fruity and very, very heavy.

Might be a good present for a young girl who's never smelt anything better, and it might make good air freshener in an emergency, but to me it smells cheap and nasty and I really can't stand it.

I find this one to be a fragrance that you really need to allow to develop. This was a blind buy for me. After reading a lot of positive reviews and finding a bottle for only $8, I decided to try it. At first whiff, I thought it smelled like hairspray, and I immediately thought "mistake". But I gave it a chance to settle, and eventually it evolved into something more pleasant. I can really smell the pear note, some florals, and the woods. Still not my favorite Britney fragrance, but it is a good everyday fun fragrance.

This is a lovely perfume for everyday wear. Curious and Circus Fantasy are great for when you dont want to smell a little over the top (e.g- for office or work) Although I'd personaly chose Circus, Curious is great smelling and "clean" smellng. It can be found at a reasonable price too. Not my fave perfume, but certainly a nice one. Pretty, yet simple bottle too!

I tried it a few years ago at my friends' house, and her sister had it, and I always used to spritz it because it smelled so good! Then I purchased it a few years ago and still loved it, but now I think it's kind of watered down, and it just smells a little overpowering.

This was my very first fragrance, I got it in highschool in 2005 It will always hold a special place in my heart and in my memories. Everytime I smell it I think of me and my friends hanging out, it comforts me. It is a light sweet scent one of the best selling celeb perfumes of all time I remember it won tons of awards and was best fragrance of 04 and I can see why. Curious is unique on its own and I have never smelt anything close to it ever. I love the lotion too! Her lotions I swear are the best! They make my skin so smooth and soft ! The only thing bad I can say about this perfume is that whenever I had it for about a year the 3.3 oz the liquid turned green and stank also the atomizer stopped working as well its not the only time either all the bottles I owned did this to... You would think the company would have done something about this or is this just me this happens to lol? Also I noticed they changed the charms they dont have cubic bling no more just a plane ugly sliver ball chain... ugh... why ? cheap company arden makes alot of money stop being cheap!

Curious is an incredibly pretty fragrance that I think is destined to be a legend along the lines of Anais Anais and Sweet Honesty. It seems every girl - at any and all ages - owns this perfume, at least for a time. Curious is not a fragrance I wear regularly, but there are times when I need something to make me feel smell younger, prettier, carefree, and optimistic, and Curious is is just what I need. Curious smells like the first fresh breezes of Spring after a Winter of continual blizzards. The magnolia and jasmine notes are soft and alluring, but over-all, Curious is a comfort scent for me. It's pretty, because it feels great to smell pretty, and I never tire of Curious.

This is trying to be a white floral and I do get it as such. Tuberose comes out quite a bit on my skin and I like that as I love tuberose. It becomes too woody too quickly unfortunately. It lacks the softness I look for in a white floral. It stays kind of flat.

I have smelt worst things, It isnt a bad scent at all, it is a little on the lighter side for my taste but I still like it and always will,It last a good while too so you get you're money's worth. I have wonderful memories with this scent. I love it

I got an offer 50 ml for 5 Pounds but that was 5 Pounds wasted. It sounds strange. Reminds me of Christina's Inspire but this smells more flowery and medical. I don't know, I love Hidden Fantasy and like Fantasy but this is just too odd, not girly at all. More of an old Lady smell.

This was an impulse buy from an outlet store when I was in line to pay for some cute blouses. I decided to get it for my collection coz I loved the color of the bottle and it was just a mini collectible so it was really cheap.

Surprise! Surprise! When I dabbed a little bit on my wrists, I was so pleased with the scent. Floral fruity and minty fresh at the same time. It's pretty strong too so you dont have to put on a lot which is great. I thought it was gonna be another mediocre celebrity sweet scent but it is quite unique.. It's really growing on me.. I might get the biggest bottle coz it smells so fresh and the bottle is so friggin cute!!

My mom's favorite flowering tree is the magnolia tree. She loves the smell of the beautiful white flowers that the tree blooms. The moment I smelled Britney Spears Curious, I felt like my mom was right there with me and that made me love the fragrance immediately. That said, Curious is a soft, flowery almost woody scent. On me, the magnolia is strongly detected and I love that. Not many perfumes can make magnolia work but Curious does. Blended perfectly with the notes of pear, vanilla and musk, it is absolutley divine. I love this. If I were on a deserted island and could only take 1 perfume with me, Curious would be it, I love it that much. To me it is everything a perfume should be: feminine, innoccent, sweet, earthy and a little bit sexy. Simple and beautiful.

Update: Althought it smells divine all year long, i've noticed that some of the notes fade out much faster in the hotter months. Curious appears to be better suited for colder months, at least on me.

Curious is a young woman, on a hot summer night, walking through a garden, passionately in love. It actually evokes the sensation of humidity that you feel on summer nights on the east coast and in the south. Someone else remarked that it smells like the end of innocence, and I think that's a great way to put it. No longer a little girl, but certainly not yet a mature woman. I also love that this perfume has excellent staying power.

Curious is a fresh, playfull and energetic fragrance.
The top notes of pear Magnolia and Lotus flower melt together to deliver a fresh but clean blast of floral, I can really detect the magnolia in this, which makes it somewhat creamy, and gives it a sense of warmth without it being too fresh.
I dont think I would class this as a floral fruity, i think it leans more toward Aquatic floral, because of the cleaness about it. I think it's quite a unique fragrance as i haven't smelt anything like it before.
I would suggest this perfume for spring, as its quite crisp and sharp, lasting power is brilliant on me, I sprayed it on this morning and now, i can still smell it.
Great casual perfume which I class highly. :) x

I brought this perfume when it first came out, and continued to buy it for years. I always used to get compliments from people around me, and people asking me what it was, and saying they wanted it for their Girlfriends. Almost everyone I would hug would say "Wow, whats that?"
To me it smelt very floral, flirty and girly!
However when I went to buy a new bottle recently, I noticed a dramatic change in the scent. I asked a few people around who also wore this, and they too noticed the difference. Compared to my old britney Curious (Which I still had a small amount of) The new one smelt almost like nothing. A very small hint of flowers and citrus, but the Curious I remember is long gone. Its such a shame..

I have to admit, I probably would have never sampled this if it didn't end up as an extra in a sample swap (Thanks JubliantUvula!)

Curious smells initially like a soft drink--a soda, pop, whatever you call it. A soft drink from a bar tap: more sweet than fizzy. Maybe a soft drink that is part-sugar, part-diet (artificial sweetener!)
The opening is candy-like, artificial fruits, yet the most interesting part.

Afterwards, I smell a "floral accord" that I can only identify as being marketed under the word "floral" because of myriad mass market perfumes and linen sprays and aerosol air refresheners with the names and pictures of magnolias, lilies, and gardenias on them. In hell, this is what your floral garden smells like. If this is floral, then I am the living reincarnation of Edith Piaf.

I am not hating this because it is mass-market, faced by a pop music idol (though I have to admit, I am biased and according to many, a snob)
I recognize this fragrance from high school or some nightclub outing maybe. It struck me as brash and cheesy then, and it strikes me that way again, knowing what it is, and smelling it on my skin. Scrubber.

If you want a mass-market floral fruity, there are so many pleasant ones to be found elsewhere.

I read somewhere, Britney being a Southern gal, wanted her first fragrance to pay a tribute to the great American South. A lot of people associate magnolia trees as a southern thing so they added Louisiana magnolia as the strongest note.
Moving on to the perfume, its beautiful and the magnolia really blooms on my skin. The magnolia in this is delicate and creamy when mixed with vanilla. There is a humid quality to this fragrance reminiscent of hot summer nights. Maybe it`s the lotus mixed in with tuberose and pear that is giving off this watery/humid feel to it. It`s like a moonlit walk in a lush tropical garden when the air is still and fragrant. The drydown is musk and even though not stated in the notes on my skin, I detect a soft scent of patchouli.The bottle has a vintage feel to it. Reminds me of a beautiful Southern belle right out of 'Gone with the wind'.
Standing in front of her vanity on a warm,sultry southern summer night, and dousing herself from the old fashioned atomizer with the scent she grew up with, the scent she loves the most... the scent of luscious magnolias.

I love this perfume so much. I love the sophisticated floral feminine scent and its flacon. The mesmerizing color of its flacon is reminiscent of my birthstone Aquamarine...a sparkling light blue that captures the refreshing color of the fairest seas.

The story behind it is very special to me. It was the very first perfume my husband gave me and which I wore during our special day....our wedding.

Everytime I see this beauty and sense the gorgeous floral scent, it reminds of our wedding vows that we will love each other no matter what....'til the end of time :)

I have come up with a perfume inspired birthday cake on my b-day on March and it will be Curious...because it is lovely and it has a sentimental value to me.

Easy to wear soft floral with a hint of pear which is not overly sweet. I can detect magnolia but not the tuberose or jasmine- only a slight soapiness which may be due to the tuberose..the dry down is clean and pleasant. smells like a young, innocent lady!

I mostly smell white flowers and oranges. It's a powdery sweet floral scent and dries down extremely sweet and very childlike on my skin. It's not my thing remotely, but will work well for those who like innocent playful scents and don't mind the powder notes.

I quite like Curious, it smells sweet and innocent on my skin. It was a favourite fragrance of mine when I was in high school. Curious is a young, fresh fragrance, which may not appeal to those looking for a more mature or classic scent. It's rich in sweetly-scented white florals (jasmine and magnolia notes come through strongest on my skin). Gourmand lovers may prefer the vanilla-based Fantasy over Curious, but if you're a lover of white florals and fresh scents, Curious may be worth checking out. The sillage is also quite strong, one or two sprays is enough.

Be aware, however, that Curious is a unique scent and therefore very recognizable. There are a several girls at my university who wear this and I always know when they've been around because of the cloud of Curious lingering in the hallways and classrooms.

When my passion for perfumes first started, back when I was about sixteen I swore to myself that I would never be a fan of celebrity perfumes, I mean I wouldn't even give them a chance when I would go test the ocassional fragrance or two at the department store. -I was a bit of a snob really.-

This all of course changed a few years later when I was over at my besties house and she had just got the new Britney perfume that had come out - Curious. So I gave it a go... I was expecting something cheap and nasty... but NO!

To me Curious is such a unique smell, I still haven't come across anything that smells remotely close to it. A really summery, light fragrance, very peaceful and relaxing, this is the image I get in my mind when I close my eyes and take a wiff from it's completely adorable flask!!! I swear it's like a little genie bottle or something <3 So cute! I'm a sucker for cute :)

I wear it during warm days - which you get ALOT of in Queensland/Australia and I am really surprised when I read alot of reviews saying that it doesn't last long? I must be lucky because even tho it's such a light, subtle scent it lasts for the entire day on me.

One of my top 5 favorites and it's definately started a love affair with the Britney perfumes <3 I think I have like 3 now :D

Got this perfume for xmas 2 days ago from my friend and to be honest I was a little horrifed when i opened the wrapping to find this underneath. When i took it out and sprayed it, initially I thought, hmmm.. nothing special.. but after a while it turned into something completely different.. not bad at all! i believe this was britneys 1st one. I have smelt a couple of the others (fantasy & fantasy midnight) both of which i thought were offensive. but this one is very wearable.. mayve i will wear it to the office.. defo i daytime one.. not special enough for evening or special occasion.

Curious, when first made, was beautiful. Lots of sweet floral notes, a hint of peach, on a musky bed.
Its not like that anymore, it smells like Curious has been spiked with metholated spirits. It's been concentrated in a cheap deoderant.
These candy scents are easy to market, therefore a target for pirate perfuming, so be really careful when buyin them. Dont buy Curious anymore unless you've never tried it before, you could be gravely dissapointed.

I think we should all keep in mind, this fragrance is licensed to Elizabeth Arden. What that means to me: Every fragrance I have loved that I found was licensed to EA has turned cheap on the re-release. I bought Hummer and it was gorgeouse, the second bottle I bought was nowhere near the same, almost undetectable. The exact same situation occured when I bought Britney Curious, or tried Usher He, Dirty English and Rocawear 91X. So essentially, if you've owned it and loved it once, leave it at that, because chances are, it won't be anything like the first.
I dont want to seem like a hate campaigner, but I'm very upset that I cannot find the original formula anymore.

This one smells like Kenzo Amour Florale to me, just without tuberose. Very floral, nice summery scent. It's for those who like floral, non-sweet perfumes.

This one I got as a gift, it was to replace the Brit I had a few years back that I guess doesn't exist anymore, It was in a purple bottle like the Midnight but it wasn't Midnight, anyone know what I'm talking about? It was very fresh and fruity and light, great spring scent.

a clean and aquatic floral that dries down into a crisp vanilla. Tuberose and Magnolia take center stage throughout. I hardly get any pear though. I can see why it's popular. It's feminine and doesn't offend by being overly sweet.

Curious is a light and soft floral fragrance. I have mixed feelings about the opening. It is fruity floral candy and it is a bit synthetic but at the same time I kind of like it. Yes, it does remind me of pear lemonade but it is not unpleasant and it does not stay for long. Jasmine and tuberose in this fragrance are subdued and not very strong. I feel that this scent goes into the base notes pretty quick. I do like the dry down. It is nice warm musk with a touch of florals and woods.

This perfume is for a younger audience but I do see that a mature woman can wear it too (after the pear lemonade waporises). Florals are not very loud in this fragrance and the dry-down is quite nice. I would not call this perfume a unique or special but it is pleasant and safe choice to wear for everyday use. It is a good office perfume. Unfortunately the lasting power is not that great.

This is one of my all time favourites. i always end up coming back to curious because it is a nice light floral, not overpowering and i wear it all year round. curious is not as sweet as fantasy and although i like fantasy, it can be a bit cloying.
i do wish it lasted a bit longer though, but at least this way it doesn't give the people around you headaches!

I was duped into buying this on sale because of the precious bottle. Really, the bottle is just darling with a vintage twist and is the most appealing thing about this perfume. Curious is just like Britney's music: synthesized, mass produced, and aimed to appeal to younger audeinces. The difference is that while Britney's music is provocative, her fragrance is not. Curious just floats away and cannot be stopped! Perhaps there is too much sweet, watery fruit? I can't put my finger on it but there is just something not right about this perfume. It doesnt ever 'ground' itself with appealing basenotes, and thereby just continues with the sickly-sweet akward candied fruit. Very bizarre scent. Good staying power though.

Beautiful sexy daring outspoken deliciously sweet glamourous gorgeous !!! Perfect blend of fruits, greens and flowers. Its extraordinary.

The combination of crisp, green, sweet magnolia with sandalwood and vanilla, makes the sweetness like that of a chocolate.

By the way, I just noticed on the package, this is an Elizabeth Arden product made for Britney Spears.

When it came out in 2004 I was really excited to try it out because I have always been a fan of Britney's music. So I went to the store and sniffed it and I didn't like it at all. Soon after that I gave it another try and still it didn't work for me so I gave it up and started to wait Britney's new fragrances.
But this year I noticed it in a store and I decided to try it again after about five years. Oh, how I loved the first sniff. I sprayed it on my wrist and I coulnd't stop smelling it again and again. I bought it later and now it's one of my favourite perfumes, if not my most favourite now.
First sniff is full of magnolias but when the jasmine comes out I just want to smell it all the time. The perfume starts of pretty fresh and gets a bit sweeter when the vanilla comes out. But it's not too sweet like Fantasy, just about enough sweetness in it to wear it every day and not get sick of it. On me it lasted quite long - over six hours.

It's amazing how my perfume preference has changed and once unlikeable perfume has turned out to be a favourite of mine after five years.

I have a 100 ml bottle with atomizer.
I bought it about 2-3 years ago, but about 1 year it's GREEN and it has a STRANGE SMELL!!! Because the atomizer gets air so the perfume going to a bad and strange smell.
I'll NEVER buy a perfume with atomizer anymore, because of this!!!!

Anyway the fragrance very lovely, fresh, girly, youthful, ideal to all seasons mainly for spring!!:) Not too long lasting, it lasts about 3 hours. But i love it!!!:):)

On my skin it is not particulary clean nor light smelling. I would be curious to smell it on some of my fellow reviewers as I am obviously missing something.

The top notes are strange and mildy repellant. I am not entirely sure what grape coolaid smells like (is it a cordial??) but this is one nasty brawling pear, punching below its weight with a drowned lotus flower. I am also left wondering where the pepper punch is coming from?

The magnolia trys to lift the rest of this ponderous brew with its gossamer wings but it is heavily weighed down by sloppy pear and heavy spoiling white florals. I can really smell a medicinal tuberose & I feel that this is where the underlying harshness comes from that permeates the length of the perfume.

The drydown is much nicer, adding vanilla in to sweeten & homogenise an otherwise messy composition.

My little brother bought me Curious when it 1st came out in 2004. He is madly obsessed w/ Britney! I never thought in a million yrs that I would like Curious but it actually grew on me. Its a nice little floral scent. Its far more sophisticated than I ever thought it could be. I get complements on it all the time. The older ladies I work with LOVE it!! Ive boughten them bottles for their bdays and xmas. Well done Britney. Curious is a winner in my book.

I definitely agree with Sherapop (this may in fact be the only thing we agree on!) when she mentions the sickly grape kool-aid opening to Curious. But after a few minutes it mellows into a comfortable sort of ethyl maltol-laden floral cutie. I don't get the tuberose at all, unfortunately, but it's really not missed.

If you're a sucker for demure white florals and still want a bit of fruit in there, you have to try this!

This was my first ever fragrance which my Dad bought me, as it came out when I was a young teen, about 13 or so, and since then, I have gone through about eight bottles, which is a lot! lol:)
Anyways, I think thats partly because even though the scent is original, it doesnt last very long, so I try and use it with the Body Souffle and powder, just to make it last that little bit longer...Definitely one of my favourite Britney frags!

I love how it's smelles makes me feel light and soft; my BF loves it too.

The problem with it that it don't last for more than 2h.

Curiously enough, Britney Spears CURIOUS smells to me like grape koolaid initially, and then sweet patchouli after a couple of minutes. Truly inexplicable, given the notes. Perhaps the magnolia and lotus mixed with pear and vanilla in musk are creating this patchouli illusion.

While the pseudo-patchouli drydown of this fragrance is quite nice, I really gagged at the opening and do not think that I can muster up the courage to spritz it on again, though my sample vial of eau de parfum is more than half full. Curiosity killed the cat!!!

Update: this is a really nice drydown. I am tempted to hold my breath through the grape koolaid and try again...

I start my review saying that this is a masterpiece.

I can smell magnolia clearly. This scent helps me to imagine a summer evening: it´s hot, and I´m in a foreign country. There are pretty gardens, and I walk along the street with te sun on my face and a soft sea breeze that makes me feel so good.

This is a clean scent, perfect for any moment (day and night, summer or winter) and perfect for teens and young women.

The staying power is really good, so this fragrance is a must have for me.

I had this so many times, and today still love it.

The bottle is original, but I think that Believe´s is much better.

I would recommend to try this, even if you don´t like Britney.

I can honestly say when I tried this on my first thought was "What? Am I wearing something?" I doused myself in it an could barely smell it. Maybe it's just my chemistry but it was very very faint. The smell itself, from what I could tell with my wrist firmly pressed against my nose, is interesting but far from exciting. Not beautiful or bad, just blah...curious indeed.

Britney's team knows how to market to 20something yr old and to teens. The bottle alone is a seller.

Absolutely adore this, IMHO this is probably the best celebrity fragrance, that i actually adore.
Its pure lush on my skin & smells like no other fragrance, which is why this is so unique. It is a real shame that curious is not credited as well as it should be cz this is her best scent to date.
Smells so beautiful, alluring, subtle yet powerful & really long lasting, simply cannot be accused of copying another fragrance.
On me it smells floral with a hint of sweetness that last all day.

Have it in 50ml & 100ml cz its a bargain.

I absolutely love this bottle. The fragrance is so fresh, clean, young, and sexy. I am far from being a teen, and yet- this smells really great on me! It smells "different," in a really good way. It has great lasting power too. I get excited when I can smell a little whiff of it throughout the day. Once again, so fresh, clean, and sexy. Just a great one...PS: I really love all of Britney's fragrances. I think as far as celebrity sniffs go- she's nailed it.

Curious has a pear note and I dont like pear in perfume. when I spray this on my skin it smells really bad...so bad I have to wash it off. my skin chemistry just doesnt work with this one. Thats why I spray it on my clothes, that way it smells the way it supposed to smell. fresh and clean like fabric softener.

I love this perfume. This is one of those fragrances that I will walk away from for a couple of months, even years, but I will always return to it. The name is perfect, Curious, because this is a very curious fragrance, unlike any other. The drydown is so fabulous and longlasting, musk and magnolia rolling into vanilla, and so memorable. Reminds me of young and carefree days.

So after years of wondering what the hype was about Curious, I bought a bottle because the 100ml bottle was on sale for $20US at TJX.

The beginning of the fragrance is a very sharp and cold floral and somewhat alcohol-ish. I almost chucked the bottle because of the opening. After 3 or 4 minutes that sharpness and alcohol faded leaving the heady aroma of magnolia and pear. It's a little strong at this point, but this transition convinced me to let the juice have a full day's wear. As time progressed, Curious became softer and sweeter. The cyclamen and jasmine began to round out the fragrance. The coldness began to disappear and the fragrance becomes a light and lovely floral with the right balance of sweetness. The drydown is a soft musk that reminds me of Coty Wild Musk with flowers. Which is okay because I love that fragrance.

Because it's so strong with my chemistry, I think I'll reserve this for a fall/winter only fragrance. Also, I guess that the problem with the atomizer has made the manufacturer change the top to a spray bottle. I understand that this will help preserve the fragrance, but part of the reason I bought the fragrance is because I wanted an atomizer spray top. Oh well, I guess if this helps keep it fresh, that's okay. Curious is definitely not sophisticated or classic, but worth a purchase. Overall, I rate Curious 7 out of 10.

I thought Fantasy is a bit naive, I thought all Britney perfume would be similar, but Curious is different from it, still, it's her style. At the beginning I was able to smell fresh floral notes, which were very nice, but I started to think that it's all about it... And then, afer a few minutes it became more fruity and intense. It surprised me, I wasn't expecting it to turn that way, but I liked it! Curious dries down beautifully, remaining soothing smell of woods and vanilla on your skin. I can also smell pear, even then. This perfume is certainly worth attention!

Edit: Bought it recently for a ridiculously low price. At first I wasn't sure what to think, but then the scent started to develop and... God, I fell in love. At fist fresh like a bouquet of white flowers, then I smell something refreshing, something slightly similar to mint, but no, that's not it, I'd describe it as a refreshing herb... Then it becomes sweeter and simply gorgeous. This is probably the only perfume that I can smell on myslef almost all the time. It doesn't have this elegance like the designers' perfumes have, but it is enchanting and very intriguing. However, I've just realized that it smells better on my friend than on me. On her its a lovely soft vanilla and on me it gets rather herbal. I'm not so in love with it right now, but I understand why people decide to buy it. It must be not enteirely "my" scent.

This proved to disapoint me: I find it too strong, even agresive, no soft notes, just violent sweetness. It seems it was made by an inexperienced and extravagant scientist.

This really isn't a bad scent. Testing it at Kohl's last night, all I smelled was candied flowers..? It's sweet light and cute but definately one of her more childish fragrances. The lasting power is nill. If I had a daughter that was in her early teens or preteens, this would be a good starter fragrance for her.

When Curious hit the market I can't believe I was smelling a really good perfume from a pop artist!.. that's maybe cuz i thought it would be a complety disaster, but for my surprise i feel in love with this intense fragance. Most of the floral usually evaporate so soon, but curious remain on the skin a good time..
Vanilla, Pear, Tuberose, Musk, Magnolia.. What a Combination!!

Curious makes you feel Fresh, Sweet and young.. I highly recomend this fragance for teenangers.. and for a first date!

So forget prejudices and try Curious!

Ok, so to be a good sport, I'm trying this again...

Hmmm...why do I smell boiled lima beans at the beginning? What IS that? After a minute or two, I smell the middle notes. The tuberose & jasmine aren't as pronounced as they are in Secret Obsession, probably bec. of the cyclamen mixed in. And that's when it becomes too cloying for me. =( From here on out, that's all I get. No bottom notes to soften the blow. Sorry Brit Brit...but this one is a no-no for me. You're dancing skills are superb, but I can't say the same about this particular fragrance. Sorry Curious lovers! =( I tried!

The only reason i have it is because Britney is the LOVE of my LIFE! I know its her 1st fragrance and its so damn popular but it just never really WOWED me! Its her only scent i dont love! Fantasy, Midnight Fantasy, Hidden Fantasy, In Control, and Believe are so WONDERFUL! Its just a plain white floral! Maybe im just not into white florals. So sorry Brit! Curious is just not for me. But Curious IN CONTROL is a whole other story! Its in my top 10 all time favs! The one thing i do love about Curious is its packaging! I freakin love the bottle and the black, blue, and pink outer packaging! Its just Gorgeous! Love u Brit!

Beautiful top notes. Got hypnotized by the shape and color of the bottle.
Unfortunatelly, it doesn't last on my skin.

Its Curious' 5 year anniversary in September! I wonder if Elizabeth Arden & Britney have any plans for it? It would be fun to have like a limited edition bottle w/ her signature on it or something? Maybe a pure perfume form of the fragrance in a really stunning, crystal bottle or different packaging? I dont know! Possibilies are endless! I sure hope they do SOMETHING for it! 5 years is a big deal in my book when it comes to the fragrance world!

Definately a light floral "teen" fragrance. Opens as a fruity floral as the pear is detectable and luscious! Settles to pleasant, light florals (magnolia and jasmine being predominant for me) and eventually the musky, woody notes come through. Uncomplicated and very girly.

This is a perfect example of a young teen girl perfume, it is so familiar to me because it resembles something I wore when I was 12 or 13. It's cute but I'm older now and I need something that exudes young woman not young teen. I got this in a sample today and just couldn't resist spraying abit, turns out I washed it off about 20 minutes later. I smell citronella and the magnolia is too strong, I also don't get any vanilla which would be the only thing that would save it for me! Sorry not for me but perfect for daughters, young cousins or nieces.

Curious is a good name for Britney's first perfume.it's very sweet and fruity at the first sniff.I get some fresh notes like litchi mixed with lotus well.it's not insisting on being sexy nor beauty.it's just expressing herself,like the times in which she sang "Oops I did it again".
I enjoy the sweetness of the first notes.it's really nice,without being too sweet.
but the middle notes are just a disappointment.it seems to fade away so quickly.although still there is the scent,but it's very very light and after an hour it's just sweetness of vanilla.
the long lasting power is weak.it's like the name.it's just curious to discover the world and when you want to notice the scent,it's almost gone just like a impulsive curiosity.

This scent opened with white florals; after about 20 minutes I smelled gardenia - I swear it to you. I have no idea why I smelled gardenia when there is none here, but that is what I smelled. That lasted a good long time, then there was sort of a soapy scent that lingered. I would say the scent lasted, altogether, for about 5 or 6 hours. It isn't bad, but it's a bit "generic" for me.

I don't usually smell the so-called "celeb perfumes" whenever I'm at a perfumery.However I read a lot of positive reviews on Curious and the bottle was also very tempting, so I had to give it a try.From what I can remember it was very powdery, soft and innocent, not really my kind of perfume.Maybe I have to smell it again, just to be sure.=)

Anyone who doesn't appreciate this perfume has a broken nose or head. Its peaceful, not atoll fruity and just smells fabulous. The pear adds a sparkle to the magnolia and lotus and the sandalwood and blonde woods leave you tingly for hours. This is a one of a kind that i thank god now costs only 25$ for the 3oz. bottle

Yuck. I got this as a gift, and though I love the bottle, I hate the juice inside. It is as plastic and one-dimensional as its creator. Curious reminds me of Plastecine modeling clay I used to play with as a child, which isn't a plus for a perfume. Thankfully, the plastecine is short-lived, as this scent fades in record time.

Nice I can smell the magnolia which is beautiful and this is one of the 1st celebrity fragrances I ever bought and I like it! I went and got another bottle today because I am running low.Best bottles to buy are the 1.7 or smaller because of the pumps that never seem to work long enough to finish a 3.3 oz bottle!

I have to admit I was pretty surprised with Curious. I read reviews prior to buying and many have described this as a "girly, sweet, candy-like" fragrance. So I had the impression that this is going to smell like your typical youthful tween fruity/gourmand . Which was why I was so surprised when I tried this on, because it is not something I would've expected from Britney Spears. Starts out really sharp floral and stays floral throughout, but the sharpness rounds out after awhile leaving you with an after-scent that's light and clean. I'm not sure what it is (not good at distinguishing fragrance notes) but there is something in the top/middle that is very nostalgic to me. That note --probably magnolia or jasmine, or even both-- reminded me a lot of my grandmother. She used to wear a body splash that smelled a lot like this...or maybe it was the flowers in her garden? Either way, Curious brings back great memories me. I think I'll grow to appreciate this fragrance more.
The only thing I feel I must complain about is the bottle (I have the 100ml bottle with the bubble atomizer) . My goodness. the bottle slipped from my hand and landed on a cardboard box only an inch away, and somehow gushed out 5ml of the juice. UGH. I don't know how it happened, it probably leaked from the hose. I think it would probably be best to just go with nozzle spray.

edit:
The juice spoils way to quickly. I've only had this perfume for three months and already some of the notes in the composition are gone and the juice is smells more alcohol-y than before. Most of my fragrance only start to spoil after 3 years. On top of that, the lasting power is now very weak. Very disappointing. I don't think I'd repurchase, as much as I liked the scent.

Very girly and floral. I love curious. Lasts a long time too. The way I test how well a fragrance lasts is before bed, I spray it on my wrist and the bottom of my shirt and then smell it in the morning. Curious, Believe, midnight fantasy, and fantasy all last through the night.

This was the first Britney fragrance I bought.

I remember craving this fragrance when it first came out. I would always remember to spray this on me whenever I passed the fragrance counter at my local department store. I was so young at the time, it would be at least another 4 years before I actually owned Curious.

When I finally owned a bottle of this, I rarely used it. I wanted to wear stronger and louder fragrances, and Curious just seemed too light at the time. It wasn't until my perfume collection started spiralling out of control that I came back to this scent.

In the warmer months Curious really blossomed. The fragrance was light, flowery yet musky. On the skin it was soft, delicate and feminine.

Curious is what I'd call a soft and pretty floral scent. In the opening you can smell the pear blending with the jasmine, tuberose and magnolia. This fragrance kick-started my love for white florals.

The drydown is quite musky, yet the vanilla adds a slight sweetness, rounding off the scent nicely.

I'm not ashamed to say that I wore this fragrance during this year's Summer, every day until every last drop was gone. The scent left me feeling refreshed and clean.

The lasting power unfortunately wasn't great, (possibly the reason why I haven't repurchased this fragrance). However if I received Curious again as a gift I would not complain.

Overall, Curious is a distinctive fragrance best suited to young girls searching for something light, flirtatious and pretty.

When I first saw CURIOUS I bought it without trying any. I just wanted the pretty bottle.


On the first spay you notice the top notes of magnolia and lotus flower, a few hours later you are surprised with the mouth-watering aroma of tangy pear, then the dreamy base of vanilla-infused musk, which lasts throughout the day.

On the minus side this scent is very strong, so spray lightly.
Other people describe CURIOUS as sweet & light, but the top notes give a sharp first impression on me.

CURIOUS has a unusual sweet/sour combination that will keep me coming back for more, migranes be damned!!

It's distinctly magnolia to me, but the musk and vanilla smooth it to a very feminine, soft fragrance. Almost yummy. Not what I expected Britney's fragrance to smell like. Sultry and flirtatious, but not outright sexy.

I usually associate magnolia with perfumes targeted to more "mature" audiences, but this has made me appreciate it more.

I have to say I absolutely detested this..quite possibly the worst fragrance I have ever had the misfortune to try...I ended up scrubbing it off with a nail brush..It's certainly pervasive !

It's a shame, because I think the bottle looks really loveley.

I just have to say that I really wanted to like this one b/c of the pretty bottle! and it comes with a cute old fashioned atomizer! however the alcohol scent is way too strong and it covers up any fruity or floral smells...

I have to say that curious is unlike any other perfume I have smelled in a long time.It is definitely a fragrance that you can pick out in a crowd.

I get a lot of magnolia in this perfume.It is a great spring scent.It would go well with a summer dress & a field full of greens.It is good for barbecues & any outdoor event.It is kind of strong but it's not a musky or powdery strong....It's all floral(A sweet floral if that makes any sense?)A spray or two will do the trick ;)

It is a very girly, feminine & floral scent but it doesn't change much from first spray to dry down,(at least on me).It actually smells the same on a card as it does on my skin.It lasts a very long time though & that to me is great ;)I put it on at 5 am & now at 1:30 in the afternoon it smells just as good as it did when I first applied it.

Granted it's not a scent for everyone & in my opinion it isn't an every day scent but it is a gorgeous concoction that if worn the right way it smell's fantastic

I was surprised that i actually liked this. It has a very nice vanilla note, which smells really good with the magnolia. After I applied it, I kept getting a whiff of something that made me happy, and it was me!
*edit* I also think that if it weren't for the magnolia, this would bear a strong resemblance to Dior's J'adore.

Curious lives up to its name by being both sensual and girlishly innocent at the same time. It's feminine, warm and strong but in a pleasant, soothing and dazzling way. There's just the perfect amount of finesse and ingredients. One more note and it would've ruined the whole thing by turning it to an intoxicating and overpowering potion. Luckily Brit knew the tricks of the trade just right and gave us a wonderful and enjoyable perfume. Excellent!

I like this one! Its unique, the Magnolia, wood scents with musk but not too much, it comes out kinda powdery. This is the one I wear when I am totally not in the mood for my usualy Sweet foodie scents. It is quite the oppasite. Guys always seem to know what it is and like it. Its a great price and a great perfume.

This was my only fragrance for about 2 years. I used up 4 bottles.
Everyone told it smelled good. In the beginning it's not overpowering and is pretty balanced. It leaves a beautiful trail after you when you walk. The stupid thing is it's different. The french made perfume is more calm yet hasn't got the note american made has. Both of them are excellent yet not the same. It has kind of weak staying power, but if sprayed on hair it should do it.
I bought souffle and it really is good to layer this perfume, lasts very long and smells even better than perfume along.
The worst thing is atomizer on 3.4 oz bottle as it makes perfume evaporate or spoil. And it sometimes pisses me of, because it's sometimes refuses to spray.
I had to decant my very last 10ml, because sprayer doesn't spray at all.

P.S. Here we are, 20 years old. Funny, but I still find myself loving this perfume :o. Tried it not so long ago at local store and it's still so good! Weird. I often get bored of celebrity perfumes before the bottle is gone, but this is a winner for me :3 I'ma buy that 5th bottle, yeah.

From all of Britney's fragrances, this first one is the best one. I like to spray it on from time to time. After testing, I bought a 100ml bottle, used less than a half and the atomizer broke, I had to toss it out. Now I have 30ml, I love the drydown.

Surprisingly, it is quite good. Not yummy as intended but a nice one. I do like it better than the awful Fantasy, since this one is more subdued and wearable.
Yet, all of her perfumes end in a gum-like note I dislike.

I like it. It's when I'm feeling cutesy and girlie. Nothing about it says sexy or classic or romantic. It's more like, "fun, flirty, cutesy, girlie." Teenybopper. That's the word.
