I bought a 3.4oz. bottle of Curious by Elizabeth Arden. At first, I hated it since it didn't really smell like anything special to me and eventually I kept testing out the tester at work and bought it for myself. I grew to love this scent. It comes in a very cute bottle too which doesn't hurt much! It's a fragrance that I would suggest for daytime wear as it smells a little too casual for special evenings. The staying power is moderate... I'd say about 5 hours.
Now, I've owned perfumes going back to 2001 and they're still as good as new. Let's fast forward to 2012. I went to check my vanity set and smell a very strong scent of alcohol, musk, and a shitload of synthetic vanilla. Turns out, the perfume was coming out through the atomizer tube somehow! I don't know how or why this happened, but a nasty green goo had collected at the rim of the spray nozzle. I looked to the bottom of the bottle and it was turning into crystal!!! I have never ever had a perfume do this! This was an extremely disappointing find because I had a lot more use to get out of this bottle! My mother has had perfume bottles that lasted longer than 30 years and they still smell as good as new. Sorry, but I cannot say the same about Elizabeth Arden's products. I will not buy again since the shelf life is so poor!
