Sadly, Liz Claiborne herself, who was born in Brussels and raised in the USA, passed away during the summer of 2007. Liz Claiborne fashion house, which underwent a major revamp after Liz passed away, provides young men with some interesting cologne options which are unique, and also fit your budget.
Liz Claiborne first became famous for offering women practical and stylish coordinated separates which could be mixed and matched, so that each customer could create her own "look." The Liz Claiborne brand, starting in 1976, offered unique flexibility for both the closets and the wallets of career women — and men.
Claiborne menswear styles for guys have a definite all-American appeal. They are classical, very wearable and priced affordably.
The Liz Claiborne brand has evolved with the times. It's always had a modern edge and an urban vibe. And it now features memorable fragrances for guys, which are currently on-trend and truly embody the "young professional" vibe of this brand.
Explore the Curve Collection
First off, you should know that all of them are high-quality fragrances with reasonable price points. In our experience, they offer great staying power and complexity, so they don't smell "cheap" even though they are affordably priced.
Best Date Night Cologne:
When you wear Curve Connect, expect some compliments. The scent is composed of Sandalwood, Tobacco Flower, and Tea and notes, is a perfect blend of earthy and enticing scents. Its Tonka Bean note adds a touch of spicy sexiness which adds a sensual appeal.
Young guys love this scent and perhaps it's no surprise, young women seem to too. It's at the top of everyone's most complimented list and is a popular choice for date nights.
I'd definitely recommend this as a good starter cologne for a guy 15+ who wants to up their dating game. Read my full review here.
Best Casual Cologne:
If you feel at peace while you're on the beach, gazing out at the cool blue water, check out Curve Wave. Curve Wave for Men by Liz Claiborne was launched in 2005 and became successful right away. It's fresh enough to smell super-clean, without being too simple.
This is men's cologne with great balance, thanks to its Juniper, mint, liquid oxygen and musk notes. It's an ideal scent for casual days when you throw on jeans and a t-shirt or soak up the sun in surf shorts and a tank.
While this men's fragrance has a youthful spirit, it's versatile and continues to be a strong seller because men of all ages enjoy wearing it.
Sporty, yet subtle, wearing Curve Wave is a chill, clean aquatic that has mass appeal.
Best Evening Cologne:
If you want a scent with woodsy notes, which has a warm vibe and plenty of sensual appeal, then I'd recommend Curve Black. It's less sweet and citrus-y than the original Curve scent which makes it feel more accessible to all ages. Curve Black is more of a traditional masculine scent and a perfect choice for after sunset.
Personally it's my favorite of the Curve series — I'm not sure it would appeal so much to young teens but it's a good one for men in their early 20s who want a more serious evening fragrance.
Most Versatile Cologne:
Launched in 2006, Curve Chill comes in a white bottle with grey lettering. The bottle looks great and I always appreciate nice packaging. However, it's what's inside that counts. This cologne definitely delivers in terms of its exceptional notes, long-lasting performance and reasonable price. It's redolent of spicy Cardomom, earthy Musk, fresh Violet, warm Sandalwood and tart lime. It also has Vetiver, Coriander and Green Tea notes.
If you're a CK One fan but don't want to splash out for the unisex Calvin Klein scent, going for Curve Chill will be a smart way to access the same type of alluring scent for much less.
This men's cologne will be perfect for times when you want a natural feel from your fragrance. Like CK One, it's a very versatile fragrance that will work for school, work, or evening wear.
