Liz Claiborne Curve for Women
Curve for women came out the same year as the seminal Curve for men, and it's still worn by women of all ages. It's a soft, fruity floral that, like the men's, doesn't project too strongly; it's more subtle than the powerhouses coming out in the mid-90s. Top notes are orange, bergamot, grapefruit, ylang-ylang, apricot, peach and blackberry. The heart is floral: cyclamen, rose, lotus, cassia, freesia, peony and lily-of-the-valley. The base is a sturdy wood mix, with musk, iris, amber, cedar, violet and mahogany. With a higher oil content than Curve for men, it lasts a little longer on the skin and is a great spring/summer fragrance.
