Wallflower
I dedicate my first commentary to Curious - one of my favourite fragrances. I'm not sure if it was my first fragrance anymore, but one of my first ones definitely.

Curious I would describe as clear, flowery and bright. It's a subtle scent, some might say nice. But nice is the little sister of... who else did that come from?
Curious is quiet, gentle and reserved. A wallflower, which may be easily overlooked.
The fragrance is not an olfactory challenge, it is not a sexy water, not exciting.
It leaves a harmonizing, cultivated and comforting impression with me. Nevertheless Curious is not boring, I don't know exactly what it is, but this fragrance has something totally special about it. At the beginning it is slightly fresh, I smell the magnolia well, then it develops quickly a flowery sweetness and ends a little powdery.

Unfortunately I don't notice Curious on me for very long, when I spray it on I get compliments from the environment, otherwise it is rather a skin-near smell.
On clothes it holds however clearly better, after some days I still perceive a breath of the smell.
Curious is my fragrance when I don't know exactly what fits my mood today or when I simply need cheering up: Curious always works. With this perfume I always feel just right, natural and well-groomed. Some days I want to be noticed, want to hear compliments about how good I smell. With Curious I feel like in a cloud where I don't need it all, I'm just for myself.

There are people who don't talk unnecessarily much, observe more and hold back. In their presence one feels comfortable as if one could simply be oneself, there is no embarrassing silence, no inner pressure to start an interesting conversation. The togetherness just feels casual. Somehow the curious is for me.

Lollipop made of pear and flowers
Curious smells totally synthetic to me but I have to admit that it is not an unpleasant scent. The choice of magnolia as the lead floral note is quite nice. It adds the floral freshness and tenderness to the scent. The tuberose and jasmine are light and gentle. But what makes this scent different from a straight up floral bouquet is the pear. I can smell it right from the start and it does not go away. The pear note in Curious is artificial and lollipop like. It wraps around the floral notes bringing the whole composition into candyland world. The sweetness later on supported by the vanilla note, which surfaces in the base. The scent is not overly strong and the lasting power is medium.

The scent is playful, carefree and fun but it also a bit juvenile in my humble opinion. I definitely do not see it as seductive or sensual. There is something about the candy flowers that is just remind me too much of a lollipop.

Light, flowery and fresh
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, donning it 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.

Magnolia baths in white crisp chocolate..
Curious by Britney Spears, was my first "real" perfume. How happy I was when, as a teenager, I held the blue, pink, dotted cardboard in my hands and how proud I was... I had wanted it for my birthday, although I didn't know the scent, because I adored Mrs. Spears and her music at that time!
Today I listen to ETWAS other music (mainly Metal XD), but my love for this fragrance has remained unchanged.
Yeah, it's a floral, clean scent. But I think curios is still very demanding. I don't know if it's the tuber rose, but this fragrance doesn't smell typically sweet after the celebrity fragrances, but adult, clean, flowery, creamy.
Although it is not listed, but do you know this way chocolate, with the puffed rice inside? And you know how this one smells? Somehow the sweetness of this fragrance reminds me! But so, so beautiful, together with the magnolia! I'm such a general fan of magnolia and tuberose, but here the flowers are so young and fresh and not at all old-fashioned!
Besides, the durability is HAMMER on me!
I hope that it will never be discontinued and I hope that the fragrance will accompany me for a very long time to come! :)

Simple Joy!
Curious is a perfume that I remember since forever.
As a die hard vintage lover I never knew that one day I will have in my collection this perfume.
This IMHO is a floral aquatic at least on me.
I can feel the magnolia the jasmine and a lil of tuberose.
The pear makes it aquatic and fruity but not too sweet.
It is an elegant perfume and I can imagine myself wearing it all summer.
The longevity is good but I don't mind I have the huge 100ml bottle and I can reapply every 4 hours.
Somewhere I read that a girl wore this for her wedding.
Not a bad idea at all, I find it very good if you like soft florals.
Thanx Britney.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Shampoo-like scent. Fresh and classy though. Lasts well over 8 hours on me surprisingly.

I picked this one for the bottle. It's a nice scent, but not really me. It's delicate, and delicate doesn't fit with my personality.
