      Britney Spears curious perfume is a nice sweet smell perfect as a gift for young girls

      In my late teenage years I've collected four Britney Spears parfums either from christmas or as an birthday present. This was my first ever perfume, I remember my best friend getting this perfume and loving the smell of it , so I asked my parents if they would by me it'd or my birthday. I was so happy when I received the perfume as at the time I was massive Britney Spears fan. When I was younger I loved sweet smells so this perfume was perfect for me , I liked the fact that the bottle was plastic so there was no need to worry about braking it in my bag as I took it everywhere. This is the perfect girly product especially for teenage girls and for someone like me who is not really a fan of the colour blue I really liked this blue with the pink heart gems at the side. This perfume has been out for while so there loads of good price deals.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice scent from a curious source.

      I'm not really the kind of person who buys into celebrity endorsed fragrances, though Kate by Kate Moss and Lovely by SJP are two of my favourite perfumes (previously reviewed). If I find a fragrance I like at a reasonable price then I will buy it because those are my main two criteria and this is why I ended up with this Britney perfume.

      The bottle it comes in is a clear light blue glass bottle. Much like the other Britney perfumes I have owned this is a rather unusually shaped bottle. It is almost like a large diamond in the way it is shaped to come out in the middle, but then has a circular flat base on the bottom. It also has the same faces you get on a diamond and these catch the light in a really nice way. There is also an embellished neck which leads to the pump and a blue plastic lid which is sort of dome shaped. Around the neck of the bottle there is a little silver chain which has two tiny purple heart shaped plastic gems suspended from it. The overall look is weird. It is almost the shape and design of something far more expensive and elegant but because of the colour choice and hideous gemstones the bottle just ends up looking really cheap and tacky.

      The smell though, like my other Britney fragrances, is a constant surprise. I would definitely associate her with a younger female market and would therefore expect and overly sweet scent which hasn't really been very well thought out. In fact what you get is something very fresh, floral and feminine. The scent isn't too overpowering which is great because I use it for everyday use.

      The top notes in this scent are magnolia, pear and lotus. This creates a beautiful floral and fruity layer which isn't overly sweet or powdery just very subtle and delicate. The heart notes are tuberose, cyclamen and jasmine which provide another lovely floral mixture which forms the very centre of this perfume. The final base notes are sandalwood, musk, white woods and vanilla which come together to provide a lovely earthy woody base which is ever so slightly lightened by the sweet natural smell of vanilla.

      This perfume isn't exactly mind blowing, nor is it anything you haven't smelt before. That said, for a cheap perfume it has all the right notes for me - floral, fruity and woody. I love this classic combination and it is done well here with a real sense of appealing to the young customer which is hard to do with this timeless notes.

      I find this perfume lasts between 2-4 hours which is pretty reasonable for a cheap scent. The perfume will set you back around £10-£20 depending on what size bottle you go for, though I managed to get mine for £9 so make sure you shop around.

      Overall, this is a nice perfume that will definitely intrigue you.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Aimed at the younger market

      I had never thought of trying the Britney Spears fragrance range as they cheap gaudy coloured bottles had never appealed but when I received a bottle a few years ago as a gift I graciously accepted and thought It was worth a try

      Firstly, the fragrance itself. 'Curious' is said to be a blend if floral, woody tones. It has notes of Magnolia, Lotus flower, and sandalwood with a base note of musk. When I used the perfume I couldn't pick up the muck tones but you can easily sense the floral quality to the scent. Magnolia comes through quite strong along with the woody, sandalwood. The perfume is a pleasant fragrance but is quite strong when first applied to the point of overpowering you! It remains overpowering for about an hour then begins to fade. Within around 3-4 hours I also found that the fragrance had near enough disappeared which compared to how strong it is when you first apply is surprising, I thought it would at least last most of the day.

      The perfume is presented in a faceted turquoise blue glass bottle which I wasn't keen on. It is quite a small bottle and the colour of the glass looks more like plastic. The bottle then has a couple of charms around the spray applicator in pink which again also look very cheap. The bottle looks in my opinion like it is more aimed at the young girl market who probably follow Britney and buy her music etc., I don't think that the bottle lends itself to the adult perfume market very well with its childish bottle. This is also reflected in the price and you can regularly find 'Curious' reduced to around £10 at Boots and Superdrug for the 30ml bottle.

      It is a shame really as I think, with a little refining the perfume itself would be ok, I has a nice blend of floral and woody tones but it just too pungent when first applied and fades too quickly. A re-marketing of the packaging would also help aim this perfume at a wider audience. I have to say for me, the fragrance is a nice idea but un-refined and seems a little young for me to buy for myself. I did finish the bottle that was brought for me but it did end up in my gym bag and was only used occasionally.

      Disadvantages

      Recommended.

      Although I'm not really a fan of Britney Spears' music, I've got almost all of her perfumes and I really like them. Curious is the first perfume that she endorsed and it was released in 2004.

      I purchased my first bottle of this a few years after it was released and over the years I re-purchased several bottles as it's a really versatile, unique fragrance. As this has been around for so long it's really cheap and the current retail price is around £20.00 for a 30ml bottle although it can be found on various websites at a cheaper price. There's also two larger sized bottles - 50ml and 100ml and the perfume is available from shops such as Boots, Debenhams and so on.

      The perfume comes in a compact bottle which is shaped like a diamond. It's quite cheap and plasticy looking and in my opinion the design will mainly appeal to young teenagers. It's an okay bottle and very distinctive, but it is not one that I display proudly on my dressing table. The bottle has a small diamante chain attatched to the neck of it and this has two small pink rhineston hearts - quite tacky, but it's the scent that counts at the end of the day!!

      This is described as a young and daring scent by the manufacturers and while I agree that it is a young scent, there's nothing particularly daring about it and it's actually quite a light and gentle fragrance with a pleasant hint of spice. The top notes consist of louisiana magnolia, a hint of golden anjou pear and dewy lotus flower. The heart notes are floral and the base notes include rich creamy sandalwood and vanilla infused musk. The fragrance is fresh and much sweeter than it sounds from the description and the vanilla is definitely the most prominent scent. I love vanilla, but for people who aren't keen they may find it a bit overpowering.

      I love the smell of this as in my opinion it has the perfect mix of fruity and floral. Rather than having a very generic floral scent it has an exotic hint to it and I think that it's a very unique fragrance. The musk adds a nice (but very subtle!) hint of maturity and in my opinion this is best suited to day wear during the summer. It's not overlly artificial smelling but it's not the most natural smelling perfum, either. It is definitely a young scent and I'd say that it's best suited to people between the ages of around 12-25ish, but it obviously depends on individual people. The lasting power is impressive and it lingers on my skin for a good five hours before fading. I only apply one spray of this onto my neck and my wrists and I make sure that I don't over-do it as it could easily become overpowering.

      Overall, this is a versatile scent which I really like. The bottle isn't great but I'm a huge fan of the fragrance, so I give it five out of five stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I'm not longer curious...

        ~Curious~

        Curious was the debut fragrance release from Britney Spears courtesy of Elizabeth Arden. This fragrance was released in 2004 and is available as an eau de parfum, a solid perfume stick and a body souffle. Curious is classed as a floral scent and is described as being 'both irresistible and flirtatious'.

        *Top notes - lotus flower, anjou pear and Louisiana magnolia
        *Heart notes - star jasmine, pink cyclamen and tuberose
        *Base notes - sandalwood, blonde woods and vanilla infused musk

        There are a few variations of the Curious bottle. One has an old fashioned atomiser type spray which to me, looks quite cheap and tacky. The other bottle is less garish but still nothing really special to look at. The glass bottle is a green/blue shade and adopts an unusual shape which reminds me of two, flat bottomed gem stones joined together and complete with a flat base and round lid. It is is quite difficult to describe. The regular sized bottles are complete with pink heart charms around the neck.

        ~Price and Availability~

        Despite being released 8 years ago, Curious EDP is still widely available in 30ml. 50ml and 100ml sized bottles. Current online prices are as follows :

        *Feel Unique : £19.00-£32.50
        *Amazon : £11.53-£16.90 (gift set available for £12.99)

        ~My Thoughts~

        In my teens, a took a shine to a lot of celebrity endorsed fragrances. I first received a bottle of Curious EDP when it was originally release but if I remember correctly, I wasn't very keen. I went on to buy every Fantasy fragrance released by Britney and loved them all. I have recently been re-introduced to Curious by way of a miniature bottle. I thought it was only fair that I gave it another try to see if my feelings had changed towards this fragrance in the 8 years that have passed.

        I can't say that Curious EDP has grown on me at all. It seems to be a popular fragrance so it is clearly a matter of choice. Only a small amount of this EDP is needed as it is quite a strong smelling fragrance at first. From the moment I apply this to my skin, I can tell it is a really cheap made scent due to the overpowering alcohol aroma that greets my nose.

        The scent settles down a little and a cool, fresh burst of scent rushes in. Curious is definitely a floral scent and this is very evident from the moment the alcohol scent dissipates. Whilst I favour sweet or fruity fragrances, I can handle floral based scents providing they aren't too heavy. The inital scent of Curious reminded me of an older ladies perfume which I can only assume is down to the magnolia in the top notes. I found there to be a little too much magnolia for the fragrance to appeal to me personally.

        Curious offers a fairly light floral heart which comes across as being refreshing and feminine but really non descript. Those looking for a complex floral heart will be disappointed as there really isn't much to it. I didn't get the impression that any of the floral notes took the lead. Curious quickly settles down on the skin to reveal the base notes which are a little more appealing but still lack strength and substance. The floral heart makes way for a slightly sweet, woody aroma which is simply 'fine' rather than outstanding or sought after.

        ~Suitability~

        I found that Curious EDP was quite a mixed scent which would appeal more to those who are fond of run of the mill, light floral scents. The lightness of the fragrance makes it more suited for day time use and the refreshing aspect would lead me to recommend for warmer days.

        ~Conclusion~

        Curious EDP isn't what I would call a special fragrance. It is cheap and cheerful but doesn't last longer than 6 hours on my skin without requiring a top up. I have used my miniature bottle up but won't be repurchasing this fragrance as I simply don't like the old fashioned, magnolia that comes through in the top notes. I find Curious to be quite a boring, non-descript scent though I'm sure many would disagree. It is super cheap though if you want to give it a blast.

        Thanks for reading x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          It's really worth a sniff.

          Curious EDP 30ml and 100 ml both currently on sale at The Perfume Shop on-line for £19.99

          This was originally bought for me as a gift, by a well meaning boyfriend. I think that the unidentified flying object reminiscent shape of the bottle may have drawn him to it, as well as the turquoise blue colour of the bottle with the lovely little pink charms that dangle from around the neck. In his defence these are my favourite colours.

          The contents of the bottle are actually much nicer than I thought they would be. I could identify the scents of vanilla, and a musky undertone with some floral notes. according to The Perfume Shop on-line the scent has:

          Vanilla-Infused Musk - Heart notes

          Louisiana Magnolia, Golden Anjou Pear, Dewy Lotus Flower - Top notes and

          Rich Sandalwood, Blonde Woods - Base notes.

          For me the most evident scents were those of the vanilla, and the sandalwood which is why it will never be my favourite as these scents just do not suit me.

          It was a fairly light fragrance, but I prefer the smell of fruity perfumes to those with vanilla accents in them as I find them to be a little sickly. Having said it wasn't my cup of tea, my house mate loved it, and it suited her beautifully, and on her the scent seemed to last well through the day. It really is a fragrance that smells differently on different people, and as such it is well worth a spritz if the scent appeals, as it does smell wonderful on a lot of people.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          would make a great gift for a younger female!

          The name behind the Curious brand is Britney Spears - a multi talented household name who found fame as a young american singer/entertainer. Curious was Britney's first perfume endoursed through Elizabeth Arden which is one of the largest cosmetic firms in America. Curious was released in 2004 and to date is one of the best selling perfumes ever.

          As a teenager I usually kept a large stock of purfumes which had built up over birthdays and Christmas's... When I was young I was more into the sweet light day perfumes rather than the deep, musky, sexy smelling ones that I tend to go for these days. One perfume I always seemed to have an ongoing supply of was Britney Spears Curious.

          As a child I was always a big Britney fan from the moment I saw her first music video broadcast. I distantly my parents were the first to buy me the perfume because I liked her as a singer. In them days I really liked the perfume.

          The bottle in which this is sold is very attractive - its made out of glass and the shape resembles a very low curved cone. I always seemed to have the 50ml bottles which came with a standard spray nozzle at the top of the bottle which was then covered by a clear blue lid which matched the colour of the glass below. However if you purchase the larger 100ml perfume instead of the standard spray atomizer which to me makes the perfume look very class. As previously stated I can only comment on the appearance of the atomizer from pictures I have seen as I have never owned one that has come with this. When you first purchase the perfume it comes protected in a little cube box - you pull the top layer off which is black in colour with the Britney Spears logo emblamed in the middle, and under this is the second box layer which is blue and pink in colour. The perfume sits nicely on top of this second layer protected by the top.

          From looking at the bottle the perfume looks clear / colourless due to the light blue colour of the glass.

          On the actual scent itself, its quite flowery, very sweet, a little sickly and distinctive - no other perfume smells like curious. From information I have found on basenotes.net it states the top note is white floral, the middle note is magnolia and the base note is vanilla infused musk. In my opinion it describes the perfume completely!

          I was 15 or 16 when Curious released and back then it was one of my favourite perfumes. Nice and sweet (just like me!) and the bottle was a nice one to show off. These days I am a bit older than I was and to be honest the perfume is very sickly to my older nose and I no longer purchase it or mention it to anyone else for a present hint. There is nothing wrong with the perfume itself its just down to personal preference to scent and would suit a young girls or teenagers nose better. You can pick up the perfume reasonably cheap now - £10 or under on a few places online or bargain shops - and unlike a lot of cheap perfumes I do think this is worth the price - as it doesn't irratate skin, a little spray is all that is needed and it does tend to last all day rather than a few hours. As well as picking up just the perfume very cheap there is a range of gift sets you can buy where this is included. The gift set I used to always seem to get included a Curious Shower Gel and Body Souffle alongside the fragrence - however looking online now the newer ones include a lip gloss which is nice!

          I Would definetely recommend this for a present for a young girl but I am marking this down due to my own current preference on it. Not for older people! Sadly these days I don't really like her new music and I don't care too much for this perfume.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A nice safe perfume good for daywear, nothing special though

            I've always found perfumes be a waste of money, especially celebrity ones (my mind changed when I saw Katy Perrys 'Purr' perfume which I have reviewed on here). Never would I have thought I would own a Britney Spears perfume as she not someone I am interested in at all but a friend gave me a bottle for my birthday anway (I'm guessing it was cheap on sale haha).

            I have to say I do like the packaging, it comes in a black cube shaped box with a lid that has holes in that reveals the metallic pinks and blues of the bottom of the box. It seems a little outdated now as the perfume is so old but it seems to be quite classic and easily recognisable at the same time. It's pretty much just really girly and simple. I'm not a fan of the bottle too much, it's a translucent light blue shaped like a diamond with a crystal shaped lid with little pink crystal charms around the neck. I think the bottle looks really naff and cheap but again it is recognisable as Britney Spears (...so I don't tend to have it on show...).

            I was actually pleasantly surprised by the smell, it wasn't anything that caught my eye(or should I say nose?) as the scent seemed to full of quite commonly used smells in other perfumes. It seemed to be quite florally but wasn't at all overpowering, very light and feminine and perfect for daywear. The description is:

            'Curious by Britney Spears represents the young woman who pushes boundaries and revels in adventure. An exhilarating white floral accented with Louisiana Magnolia and wrapped in the sensuality of vanilla-infused musk.'

            I don't know much about perfume smells but vanilla seems to be quite a boring and common smell to use which is why I guess so many people like it as it's straight forward and fresh and not overpowering. I wouldn't say this represents a woman who pushes boundaries and revels in adventure as it's a fairly boring smell (not unpleasant though!) and I expect women wear it just to smell nice! I also think the name doesn't fit because of the same reasons, even I could tell the smell was vanilla and I have a useless sense of smell!

            Overall I think it's a nice perfume but nothing special, not being a fan of Britney Spears means it has no meaning to me either. I think the price suits it very well as I know it is nearly always on offer for £10-£20 depending on which size you buy. It's a pleasant smell but not one that I purchase myself.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Not one of her best fragrances.

            This perfume has been around for quite a few years but strangely, although I am a huge fan of Britney Spears fragrances I never got round to smelling it! Luckily my auntie decided to buy me a bottle as gift which I was very pleased about and now I can share my feelings on the fragrance with you.

            The fragrance Curious can be purchased in most places which stock perfume, its price varies depending on what size bottle you go for, looking around online I can see bottle sizes range from 15ml up to 100ml and prices are very reasonable, around £20.00 for 100ml which is a lot of perfume.

            I quite like the design of the bottle, and because of its size its also rather comfortable in my hand whilst I am using it.
            I would say its shaped like a diamond, the colour is quite a bold ice blue which goes nicely with the charms that are wrapped around the nozzle, two pink hearts.
            The box it comes in is in my opinion, even more attractive than the bottle its self, its fun and girly and quite energetic! The main colours are black, pink and blue. The design also consist of some swirls and in the middle of each side is the Britney spears logo for Curious with a blue/pink background.

            Now onto the smell of the perfume, its meant to be quite a young, bright and lively fruity/floral smell with the main smell being white flowers, vanilla, pear and magnolia..also some hints of musk.

            Spraying the perfume onto my skin I got a hint of flowers more than anything, I found it very florally but its also quite sweet smelling too..but not so much it makes you feel over whelmed like some other fragrances by Britney Spears.
            Because of the smell of this perfume I really think anybody of any age could wear this perfume, its very light, fresh and innocent..quite a natural everyday perfume and although this fragrance was meant to be quite musky I didn't really get one hint of this whilst wearing it, which for me is a bonus because I am not a huge fan of muskiness anyway.

            After a few minutes the power of the perfume starts to fade, so you ( and also people around you! ) can not really notice it much anymore ( yes, I asked people around me if they could smell it as I walked past/being close to me ect..and nobody could tell I was wearing anything unless they got quite close. ) Since the power of the perfume isn't very strong, its instantly not something I am really loving..although I cant fault it for lasting all day on my skin, but then again what use is this when its only you that can smell it and you have to basically have your wrist against your nose!

            This perfume is fine but I personally wouldn't spend my own money on it in the future.
            Also, I still do wear it, but its more the type of perfume you wear just because you want a perfume on which I am sure you ladies will understand.

            As a big fan of her fragrances, this is not one of Britney's best unfortunately.

            Hope my review was of some help to you!

            Disadvantages

            Not one that I will be using ever again

            I'm probably not in the age group that Britney Spears curious is targeted at so I'm not sure why my mum bought me a bottle of it though I have a sneaking suspicion it might have been on sale somewhere.
            Not one to ever turn down a free bottle of perfume I looked forward to trying it out as it was one that I hadn't smelt before.

            First impressions were good. I loved the bottle it came in. It is blue glass and has a lovely unusual shape to it.
            I see the picture that dooyoo has the bottle has the tassled pump. This wasn't on mine which I am assuming was because my bottle was only a small 30ml one.

            The perfume is an eau de parfum instead of an eau de toilette and this was apparent as soon as I spritzed some on me as it was so strong to my nose. I also found it to be sickly sweet so much so that it actually made me feel queasy when wearing it.

            I know a lot of people absolutely love this perfume so perhaps it was just me but to me it smelt like something a teenage girl would wear and it was so girly and feminine that it really did need some sort of spice to it to counteract this.

            The notes contained in this perfume include Louisiana magnolia, golden anjou pear, lotus flower, tuberose, star jasmine, pink cyclamen, vanilla musk and sandalwood. To me the floral notes completely overwhelm all the other scents in it and it was far too flowery and sweet smelling.

            As you can probably guess I really wasn't a fan of this but my daughter loved it and was quite happy to take it off my hands. When I smelt the perfume coming off her it wasn't quite so cloying and sickly so perhaps it just didn't mix well with my skin. Whatever the reason it isn't one that I will ever be using again.

              Recommeded!

              I have been a fan of this perfume for a number of years now. If I am honest, I probably wouldn't have bought this perfume in the beginning as I dislike 'celebrities' who bring out their own fragrances as it makes me think 'since when did the popstar Britney Spears start making perfumes?; it's just their way of making money. However, one Christmas a few years ago, my friend bought me this perfume as a gift.

              The packaging is very attractive; it consists of a black box with 'holes' cut out which are coloured baby pinks and blues. The bottle of perfume itself is also very attractive, consisting of a light blue roundish (it's quite a funny shape which is hard to describe) shapr. The lid consists of a 'pull off' lid which is attractive, especially as there is a pretty 'dangly' charm which hangs off the lid of the bottle. The bottle is very attractive and girlie and I am proud to show it off on my dressing table.

              What does it smell like? The perfume consists of: Vanilla Musk, Grapefruit, Magnolia, Sandalwood, Blonde Woods, Pear and Lotus Flower.

              I am not a perfume expert and so I don't think there is any point me going on about the top notes and middle notes etc as I don't really know what it means, and me talking in 'perfume speak' isn't going to give you a smell of the perfume, so I will just describe the perfume, how it is to me.

              The first thing I notice is that the perfume is very 'flowery' and has a real fresh feel about it. It reminds me of summer and it is quite a light perfume which means that it is perfect for wearing during summertime. I can slightly smell the vanilla musk, however to me, the perfume smells 'fruity' and 'florally'.

              I tend to wear this perfume all year round as I like it so much. I tend to wear it during the day in the winter and day and night in the summer. I find that in the winter it gives me a 'pick me up' as it reminds me of summer.

              There is quite a youthful-ness to this fragrance and so I would say that it is aimed at women in their twenties. It is quite a 'flirty' scent.

              One good thing about this fragrance is that the majority of the time it is on offer. There are different sized bottles available; 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. Mine is the 50ml one which cost £8.00 which I think is good value for money. This perfume is also available as part of 'gift sets' with body lotions etc.

              Once sprayed on, the perfume doesn't seem to last very long which is a shame; this then results in me putting loads of perfume on to try and get it to last which means that I end up using a lot of it, which then means that I get through a bottle quite quickly.

              I would definitely recommend this perfume. I go through around three or four bottles of this a year and I will continue to keep wearing it. J

              Thanks for reading!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A lovely feminine fragrance

              This is a really nice perfume and the bottle is gorgeous too. The perfume is a fruity floral with a hint of musk. I would say the scent is suitable for the younger generation as it does smell quite youthful, even with a hint of musk. Usually musky scents are for more "mature" women but this one is great for young girls and/ or teens. I bought this years ago when I was around twenty and i've bought two new bottles of it since.

              I bought the 30ml bottle of this scent which is enough to last you around six months with average use. The perfume smells lovely and has decent staying power. You don't have to top it up much during the day as a few sprays in the morning will last you until the evening.

              The perfume sprays well and the pump never fails on me. It dies down into a lovely musky scent with spicy notes that make the perfume smell quite sexy and feminine. This is a great fragrance to wear all year round and it is suitable for both daytime and evening wear.

              I would recommend this scent. For a debut scent it's fab and Britney has done a good job with this one. It's not too expensive either so that's anothing bonus and it's available to buy from most popular health and beauty retailers (i.e Boots, Superdrug).

              A gorgeous scent.

                A good perfume from Britney, but not her best.

                I am definetely going through a perfume phase right now, so when I saw a 30ml bottle of this perfume on offer at Superdrug for just £7.49, I just could not resist!

                ~Packaging and Appearance~

                Britney Spears Curious comes in a turquoise bottle that looks a little like a large diamond set on a small base. The neck of the bottle has a silvery-turquoise ring around it with a wavy pattern embossed into it. The lid of the bottle is also a little like a diamond. Attached to the bottle is a small charm with two tiny pink hearts at the end of it. This charm can also be detached and fixed to something else, for example a keyring or piece of jewellery. The bottle comes in a black box that is decorated with blue and pink swirls. On the front of the box is the title of the perfume and on the base is an ingredients list.

                ~Contents~

                The notes in this perfume are:

                TOPE NOTES - Louisiana Magnoila, Golden Anjou Pear, Dewy Lotus Flower
                HEART NOTES - Vanilla-Infused Musk
                BASE NOTES - Rich Sandalwoods, Blonde Woods

                When I first sprayed this perfume it had quite a fresh smell compared to some of Britney's other perfume, which are quite sweet. However, this 'fresh' smell didn't last long and before long, the vanilla scent started coming through and the perfume became sweeter. But after this phase the perfume became quite bland, which was a disappointment. The perfume itself only lasts about 5 hours before it completely fades away, and this can be annoying is you are one of those people who like their perfume to last all day without re-applying. The bottle lasts a good amount of time though, because I only needed one or two sprays to get the full effect of the perfume.

                ~Value~

                A 30ml bottle of this perfume is £10, a 50ml bottle is £15, and a 100ml bottle is £22 from Boots. However don't get your bottle from here, because you can get brand new 100ml bottles from Amazon, eBay and cheapsmells.com for just £10.

                Teenage Britney fans would love this

                I recieved the Britney Spears Curious purfume one christmas. I was very well curious to see what the smell would be like, I'm not really a huge fan of celebraties and their perfumes and tend to find the name sells rather than the actual smell but never the less i thought i'd give it go. To be honest I had every right to be curious with this one, I like the whole idea of the french 1900 perfume bottle, It adds a little fun to your dressing table and the little dispenser is very unique compared to other perfumes. You also get good even coverage of perfume which I find really important. Ther perfume came with a body lotion and shower gel which is perfect for topping up your scent if you want to. I however was very dissapointed by the fragrance. Yes it really does reflect everything you'd associate with Britney. Sweet, Sickly and sugar coated. This smell is very very sweet full of tones such as vanilla so i did feel like a thirteen year old girl compared to a 20 something women. I just find this scent very over powering maybe perfect for Britney fans but definately not for people who like deep fruity tones in the fragrance. I have to say i was very dissapointed and wont be choosing or purchasing in the future.
